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!

May I respectfully submit that the other reviewer that calls Dr. St. Amand a quack and claims that studies have proven that it doesn't work, does not know of what she speaks. Download the sample and read the preface. It explains why initial studies failed and how the treatment has been refined and DOES WORK. I know of what I speak, because this book changed my life for the better... much much better!

About 10 years or so ago I was finally diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Fibromyalgia after many years of trying to figure out why I always felt like I had the flu (achy and sore throat) and why I was so chronically tired, no not just tired, exhausted. Finally getting a diagnoses made me feel a little better (no, it wasn't all in my head and I wasn't just lazy), but treatments offered helped minimally. After several years, I felt like I had it under control. I had gotten to know two women fairly well on a home school forum. Both of these women also suffered from fibromyalgia. One of them had been to the point of having to use a wheelchair when she went to the store. Both were now doing really well and following Dr. St. Amand's treatment, one of them is actually a patient of Dr. Amand. Both highly recommended this to me, but I thought I was managing it okay. Then I had a huge crash and felt horrible for most of the month of August. To make a long story short, I was desperate, asked about their treatment and got the book. I printed out the copy of the study report and "letter to your doctor", from the website and took them to my doctor and told her I wanted to try it. She supported me in it, though she was sceptical at first. That was five years ago.

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.

I'd suffered with major chronic fatigue since age 23 -- and developed worsening symptoms of anxiety/depression, IBS, skin issues, hormone imbalance, etc. At 38, after eight miscarriages, I was finally referred to Dr. St. Amand.

This is the first and ONLY working treatment for me. I'd tried special diets, anti-depressants, acupuncture, massage/meditation, ayuverdic treatment, prescription antacids, lots of exercise (triathlon), moderate or no exercise, yoga, herbal and enzymatic remedies, energy healing, hypoxic therapy, hyperbaric theropy, variou "detox" therapies, hypnosis, cognitive-behavior therapy, you-name-it.

The simple (Guaifenesin) treatment described in this book WORKS for me. Guaifenesin is an over-the-counter, very innocuous medication. I'm hyper-sensitive to medications, and I feel no side effects. I'm 80% recovered after one year of treatment. And, I'm 17 weeks pregnant for the first time (after 8 miscarriages)! Blood, hormone and cholesterol tests are normal for the first time in my life.

There are lots of theories re: fibromyalgia, and lots of books on how to "manage and live with pain" - you don't have to do that. This is not a management approach; this is a real SYMPTOM REVERSAL process. Dr. St. Amand's theory is the only thing that has actually worked for me (and many others).

I suffered needlessly for years...please give yourself the gift of checking out this book. It could very well change your life.
