C. Orian Truss, MD
The Missing Diagnosis II, written by Dr. C.O. Truss, is the sequel to his original book, The Missing Diagnosis, published in 1983. The Missing Diagnosis II presents Dr. Truss' observations over the last 25 years on the diagnosis and treatment of chronic yeast infections. Symptoms of chronic yeast illness are mistakenly attributed to stress, including fatigue, muscle and joint aches, depression, menstrual and libido problems, partial loss of short-term memory and concentration, and an intolerance to chemical odors (e.g. perfumes). The diet used by Dr. Truss, both for diagnosis and treatment, is published here for the first time. Diet is a highly important element in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic illness related to the overgrowth of the fungus, Candida albicans, as described in the Missing Diagnosis II. This book was written especially for the patient.
