Publisher's Summary

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterised by pain in the muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Other symptoms include fatigue, sleep problems, allergies, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, headaches, morning stiffness, and problems with short-term memory and concentration. Increasing recognition of fibromyalgia means that diagnosis and treatment are increasingly likely, but self-help is still key.
As well as tried and tested advice on how to reduce pain, boost energy levels and help with regular sleep, this new edition includes the latest in treatments, such as the popular therapy guaifenesin. It also looks at how pain is experienced, explores the possibility that fibromylagia may be due to a rogue gene, and clarifies the difference between fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.

If you want to HEAL your body I suggest reading other books with a more positive, heart-centered approach... like From Fatigued to Fantastic by Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum. While Christine had some good advice, the tone of the book leaves you feeling hopeless. She talk about ways you can let people know how horrible and helpless you feel with little hope of living a joy-filled, happy and healthy life. A Simple solution when the pain is bad -- try doing a coffee enema (I use the Gerson Therapy recipe--Google it). 90% or more of the pain disappears. Add Meditation while you're holding the enema coffee (15 min) and you'll feel like you can conquer the world again!

Fibromyalgia does not define you. Respect it (and your body) by limiting things that aggravate it. Honor your body with organic whole foods, pasture fed protein and the right supplements and you'll start feeling like your amazing self again! You're worth it!!!
