Functional Somatic Syndromes, Stress, Pathologies and Epigentics
by Jeffrey Bland, PhD, FACN, FACB
Henningsen, Zipfel, and Herzog described the nature and management of functional somatic syndromes (FSS). They pointed out that functional somatic syndromes are “characterized by patterns of persistent bodily complaints for which adequate examination does not reveal sufficiently explanatory structural or other specified pathology,” but they are common worldwide and are seen by practically all subspecialties of medicine.
