Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a poorly understood condition that affects up to 2.5 million Americans. Since the Covid-19 pandemic has left untold numbers of people with postviral symptoms that resemble CFS, interest in understanding the condition has been renewed. In a recent NMJ Podcast interview Natural Medicine Journal editor-in-chief Tina Kaczor, ND, FABNO, spoke with Jacob Teitelbaum, MD, who has studied postviral CFS for decades.
