    The reality of these syndromes and treatment plans that do work
    How to determine the underlying cause(s)
    The connection with yeast, parasites, pathogens, toxins, and heavy metals
    Vitamins, supplements, and herbs that can help
    Diet, nutritional, and detox guidelines to follow that reverse the symptoms
