I can tell you this treatment is not for the faint of heart as it does require actually getting worse for a time as the body finally extracts from all the cells the deposits that had been forming for a lifetime. I spent the first year of this treatment fairly incapacitated as all my deposits flared together, but I also had great hope as I knew something was happening. As of this writing, my facial pain is 90% resolved with just a little pressure remaining when we have storms, my arms and legs have shed loads of "weight", which was obviously deposited phosphates, and the thick pad on the back of my neck that had kept me from turning my head for years is gone and I now have full neck mobility. My stamina is remarkable now, compared to prior protocol, and I am certain that I am on a path to wellness at last. I am hopeful that I will be clear and well by the end of 2018. I now take NO prescription meds and only the daily, lifetime OTC guaifenesin needed for this treatment. For those who claim this does not work, I say they did not follow the rules properly or simply want to throw negativity as it conflicts with what they were taught elsewhere, or are trying to prove otherwise. Time to open the mind! Why do some fail? Many folks start this treatment misinformed about how serious the avoidance of salicylates is to success. Many do not cut back on sugars, which is necessary for some to achieve success, and many are just sloppy with their salicylate exposure, only to later blame the protocol when they inevitably fail. There can be no trials for this treatment as it takes years for most to have success, and the participants would have to have their diets and salicylate exposures somehow monitored and contained....almost impossible without making a bio dome and locking participants in for a long time. For those waiting for studies, you are wasting your time, and valuable time it is. The sooner you can try this out, the sooner and faster you can start getting well. I am continually perplexed by those who aim to shoot this treatment down without ever trying it (properly). There is so little to lose by giving it a try and a world of joy to gain. I see so many who treat this as a threat for some reason (I guess because it is a sea change to most medical "wisdom") when it is, in fact, an enormous opportunity. For anyone out there who really truly wants to get well, and is sick of getting worse, this is quite literally the only way out. Nothing else exists that reverses this disease and if you think you found something that is helping you, wait a while until the flare ups come again and you will see that you were merely in a period between flares and that you are not improving after all. Only this protocol addresses the fact that all cells in the body have potentially been infested, and it only makes sense it would take a long, tough road to extract such an illness that had permeated so much of the body. For me, this was a true miracle as would not be here today without it. I can feel the deposits being extracted daily...there is no doubt. I encourage all to read this book, visit the info and 17 years of patient archives at the author's fibromyalgiatreatment.com site and put faith in your self. This disease is not your fault, but ignoring the only viable way to wellness is in your control only. Only the diligent and self-loving should apply, but you will never be sorry you did. It is your life and you have an opportunity to save it right now. You can also save the lives of your children who may have inherited this from you. This treatment may not be quick, but it is cheap and very safe. Blessings to all who came before me and will follow. We are true medical pioneers and heroes of faith and self-love and we are looking for more to join us on the road to a new life. I encourage all to at least see for themselves. If you have fortitude and daily diligence, you can also overcome this insidious illness.
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.
