I've been in private practice for over 21 years and I have successfully treated thousands of patients who have suffered for years with FMS. Many of my patients swear by this book and many of my new FMS patients simply swear because they wish that they had found this book sooner. Two words: Buy it!

This book is great for anyone, even if you don't have fibromyalgia, you will benifit from this book. It has great recipes that are easy to make, which for those of us suffering with fibro, easy is key.
I have felt much better after changing some of the foods I was eating, and this cookbook has made it easy. Some diets are impossible to follow and still live a normal life, but not this one. The ingredient were all found at my regular grocery store, and the prep time is low.
If you are looking for an easy way to change your health and the way you eat, this is the book you want.

I must say that this is a great book and very well put together. The Fibromyalgia Cookbook has easy, great tasting recipes. The author has put this book together to make it easy for those with Fibro to follow and with ingredients that most people have on hand. Dr. Bested educates Fibro sufferers with lots of information on how proper diet is key for people who suffer from this illness. This book, in fact, is great for anyone...low in fat and filled with healthy recipes. Great job Shelley Ann Smith and Dr. Alison Bested....buy this book, you will love it!!

Format: Paperback
My interest in this book was not as a Fibromyalgia sufferer myself. My goal was to further my education in understanding FM so that I may better serve and empathize with those that are suffering from FM! You see, my dearest, closest friend and companion, is just one of the millions of FM's victims. The Fibromyalgia Cookbook is a timely Godsend for millions of sufferers of this terrible, chronic illness.
The forward is written by professional Doctors specializing in Fibromyalgia and contains excellent information, in easy to understand, layman's terms, to assist both FM patients and those wanting to better understand the nature of FM. They describe how eating smarter is another tool to aid in coping with FM. Avoiding or minimizing known and potentially harmful foods, additives and chemicals from your diet and then, through a guided selection process, replacing or substituting these with beneficial foods containing proper nutrients and vitamins, you can learn to eat smarter and feel better. To aid the FM patient, the forward of the Fibromyalgia Cookbook also includes a simple example of a "short elimination diet" and a reference section for those that desire to follow up by doing research in more detail.
The author's heart felt introduction, clearly describes the trials which she had to face as an FM victim and how she is overcoming them through her faith, determination, courage and proper eating and lifestyle. She was motivated to prepare this book as a result of her self-less love and compassion for her fellow FM sufferers.
The tasty and nutritious recipes are excellently chosen and provide mouth-watering selections for everyone, but were specifically prepared with FM patients in mind.

My answer to Firbromyalgia is to have a healthy diet,exercise and go to the Dr. for help with the pain and other problems related to firbomylagia. I have now been eating only organic foods as well as following this cookbok. I love it. My husband and other family members like the recipes too.

I was given this book by a very dear friend from Canada who is herself a fibro sufferer , being very interested in healthy living myself and a non red meat eater but chicken and fish dish lover I decided to try out several of these recipes , which are very easy to follow and all the ingredients are esily available , it would also be very easy to adapt lots of these dishes for none fibro sufferers . All in all a very well written and thought out book with great and easy recipes .
WEll done Shelley Ann Smith
