This book is a must have for people suffering from FMS. It is the only book on the market today that offers a step by step treatment for reversing Fibromyalgia. It also offers information about the disease itself and the cluster of symptoms that come along with it such as: fatigue, IBS, skin irritations, vulvodynia, hypoglycemia, ect... This book will help you understand your body and how fibromyalgia affects it. It will also provide solutions for coping and controlling your symptoms until the guaifenesin makes them go away. I can truly say that Dr. St. Amand's protocol has not only changed my life, but it has saved my life. Ten short months ago (Feb. 1999) I was in the hospital fighting for my life from an overdose of pain medications & antidepressants given to me by a rheumatoligst, who claimed that these medications were the only way to deal with fibromyalgia. Today I have been on Dr. St. Amands treatment for 11 months and 8 days. I no longer need or take any pain medication and my family doctor is now weaning me off of prozac. I am happy and have the will to live again. Please do yourself a favor, read this book, and start the protocol. It's not easy but it works!

Two years ago I heard about the guai protocol in Dr. Devin Starlanyl's book. I was intrigued with the first information I saw about how to reverse this lousy illness. Unfortunately the information was limited. Some more digging on the internet and I was able finally get started on the guai protocol. I WISH I HAD THIS BOOK WHEN I STARTED. I live across the country from Dr. St. Armand and had to figure out things more on my own. If I had this book I would have had a great resource to turn to. Even after nearly two years of following this protocol, I still learned alot from this book. I am so much better today than I was two years ago. I sleep better, my TMJ pain is gone, headaches are gone, energy level is better, digestive problems are better, overall pain level is lower, disabling wrist pain is gone....I could go on and on, but instead if you have fibromyalgia and ever want to have hope of getting well again....BUY THIS BOOK! It is well worth every penny.

After having tried for ten years to regain my vigorous health, this book, recommended to me by my hairdresser who learned of it from clients, has truly changed my life. I had been to countless doctors, naturopaths, accupuncturists, and chiropractors, but my prayers were answered when I read this book. I consider myslf well-read on Fibromyalgia. Dr St Armand's explanation of the condition and his theory for reversing the disease struck me as honest and workable. I called my Naturopath, and we both dove into the cure. Four months later, I feel I have reversed the disease to the stage it was seven years ago. I no longer am fatigued, 75% of my pain is gone, and many other minor symptoms have disappeared. I have gone back to school to study to be a landscape designer, and aced all my classes the first term. (yes, the fibro-fog is gone!). The best part of reading this book is the courage it gives you to finally rejoin the world of active human beings by taking control of your own health care.

Format: Paperback
Dr. St. Amand's use of analogies and ability to explain complex concepts using clear, straightforward language make this book a joy to read! Its readers will understand the "mysteries" of fibromyalgia (and the hypoglycemia that often accompanies it) as never before. Best of all, they will be handed the tools for re-creating optimum health, vibrancy, and a sense of well being. A victim of fibromyalgia for many years, I've been on Dr. St. Amand's protocol for only five months and have already experienced amazing results! Patients, doctors, and medical students need to become intimately acquainted with this treatment plan, which is the result of over 40 years of careful research. Finally we have a solution that actually reverses the disease and allows fibromyalgia patients to lead normal, active lives.

I've read What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia. At first it seemed like the protocol would be too difficult, but it really isn't. I've been on 600 ml. of guai per day and have experienced a great reduction in pain already. Some of my other symptoms have exacerbated, but I know I'm finally on the right path. Before starting the guaifenesin, I made the rounds to myotherapists, physical therapy, took herbal supplements, just about everything. I even used to have a TENS unit. Relief was always short-lived. I've had fibro for 25 years and this is the best book written about it, in my opinion. It does work. Being careful to not block the gaui is important. I took (accidentally) vitamin C with Rose hips in it for three days. I got worse and thought I was in a cycle. Soon as I stopped taking the Rose hips, I was significantly better again within three days. Salicylates really are a significant blocker and once I had that downpat, I feel like I'm on a journey to getting well, for the first time in 25 years. I can tell you from 25 years of suffering that fibro does only get worse, so this has offered me my first real hope in years. No one needs to further convince me, as my back is feeling so much better and it hasn't even been a full two months yet. The only thing that has been a little difficult is finding more products that are not only salicylate free, but fragrance-free. I also have MCS (multiple chemical sensitivities) and fragrance products make me ill.
