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. On my last check up my doctor wanted information for the website and book again because she was amazed at how far I had come and how well I was doing.
The protocol does use guiafenesine, the main ingredient in Mucinex. I use Mucinex. I take it every day. The hard part of this program is that, for whatever reason, salicylates block the guaifenesine from working, so I can't use any products with plant oils, gels or extracts in them on my skin or hair. But I tell you as one who went from missing many get togethers with family and friends and constantly felt like I had the flu and spent a LOT of time in bed to someone who now lives a "normal" busy life that it is well worth the effort to find products that don't block. I've also experienced times when all of a sudden I started feeling like I did when the fibro was bad, only to discover after going through my products that I was using something that blocked the treatment. Soon after I stopped using the product I started feeling better again.
If you have fibromyalgia, at least get the sample and read the forward/prologue and first chapter. I think you will be intrigued. What I did was to get the book from the library at first. Once I decided I was doing the program I bought the book. I am now purchasing the Kindle edition so I can loan out my book. You can also check Dr. St. Amand's website [...]. If you decide to try the protocol they have a tremendous email support group.
I was lucky in that one of the doctors at Seattle Children's Hospital one day mentioned that it "looked like" fibromyalgia. Because the hospital does not recognize fibromyalgia in children, they refused to treat her for it. So, I went on Amazon and looked for the highest-rated book on the subject. What I ordered was the 2nd edition of this book, What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia."
In all honesty, the book sat on my counter for a couple months while I was reading a myriad of other books that seemed more likely to be the cause of her symptoms. My research on the internet about Fibromyalgia made it seem unlikely that it was what my daughter had. But one-after-one, each of the other books I read just didn't fit and the treatments never worked.
Out of desperation, I finally opened Dr. St. Amand's book and from the very first chapter I KNEW this was what my daughter had. I finally had a name for it (which, trust me, was a huge relief in itself at that point). I had every doubt in the world about his protocol, though, but I was willing to try anything.
I studied the protocol outlined in the book and on their website and we followed it EXACTLY. Now, just over a year later (she started 4/4/2011), she is 70-80% better! She is back to attending school full time, hangs out with her friends ALL the time, and has resumed some of her old activities (biking and swimming). Although it hasn't been a smooth road and she got a little worse before she got better, I wouldn't trade where she is at right now FOR ANYTHING!! She continues to get better each month, but we do find that her ankles (where this all started) are taking the longest time to heal.
I am NOT one to believe in miracle cures and although this isn't a "cure" it is the closest thing I have ever seen to a miracle. It is not easy and it is NOT going to happen overnight, but in all that I have learned it is the ONLY choice you have if you want to put Fibromyalgia in your past.
