Health, Healing & Hummingbirds

Health, Healing & Hummingbirds (HHH) aims to get a summary of the cutting-edge information on health out to people in the earliest stages of their disease. Where it can do the most good.

HHH is about healing. Finding and treating the causes of disease and giving the body the resources it needs to heal itself – rather than just endlessly chasing and suppressing symptoms.

 

Using the best information from experts in their fields, and the most appropriate tools and modern tests available including using many cutting-edge testing and other technologies, to find and treat the causes of disease gives the best outcomes.

 

HHH provides information on health and healing for the moderately or severely ill – summarised from 100 of the world’s best cutting-edge health books.

Caring for the M.E. Patient by Jodi Bassett (Foreword by Dr Byron Hyde)

This book provides essential information for anyone who knows, loves or provides care for someone with M.E. - sourced from the world's leading M.E. experts.


The book 'Caring For The M.E. Patient' by Jodi Bassett includes a Foreword by one of the world's leading M.E. experts, Dr Byron Hyde.


He writes:


"There is so much false information that is picked up and disseminated it is near impossible to hold one’s head above the water and sift through this morass of misinformation. Any attempt to seek the truth is always a major difficulty. Somehow, Jodi Bassett and Hummingbird have managed to plow through this field of weeds."


"This is a book that deserves being read, not only by patients and physicians with an interest in M.E. but the bureaucrats in the USA Centers for Disease Control who have done so much damage to the understanding of M.E.  I recommend her book to all and wish it every best success."


From the back cover:


For friends, family and partners: Your friend or family member may be just as ill and disabled as someone with M.S., yet have almost no appropriate social support at all. They may also be dealing with serious medical neglect or even overt abuse. This happens due to the deliberate, financially and politically motivated confusion between the distinct and measurable neurological disease M.E. and the vague fatigue-based wastebasket diagnosis of 'CFS'. These are two entirely different entities. Find out what is really going on and why.


Learning the facts is not time-consuming or complicated, and may improve both the patient's quality of life, and your relationship with them. You can help the person in your life that has M.E. Supporting your ill friend or family member more fully by being aware of the basic facts of M.E. could make all the difference in the world to them. This book shows you how.


For medical professionals: Patients with M.E. have some care needs which are common to a variety of other diseases, and others that are unique and with which hospital staff, doctors or carers may be wholly unfamiliar. If you are providing care for someone with M.E., you will find knowledge of some of the basic M.E. facts vital in order to avoid additional unnecessary suffering and disability.


Taking a small amount of time to learn the facts about the disease can make an enormous difference to the M.E. patient's quality of life and prognosis. It could even be life-saving. Providing appropriate care and support for the M.E. patient could make all the difference in the world to them. This book shows you how.


This book provides essential information for anyone who knows, loves or provides care for someone with M.E.
