Researching and Purchasing your books
Holistic Health Books that would be of special importance to an EDS Patient.
Please start with an area group on Facebook! Search EDS and/or Ehler-Danlos combined with your area. If nothing comes up, try your closest large town or city. WE SUGGEST this because they may have an active “Physicians List” for you. They would be EDS savvy doctors of various backgrounds in the area.

Researching and Purchasing your books:
- Check out your usual book stop. They can order it in if it is not readily available.
- Most of these books can be found easily on Amazon for a good price, but comparison shopping is recommended. https://www.amazon.com/EDS
- Check out the “reviews” section on Amazon. Usually, the “most helpful review” will have an overview of what’s right and what’s lacking in each book. This can be very helpful when you are trying to decide which book is right for you, whether you shop with Amazon or not.
- Don’t forget your local library!
