Book Description..first book to offer a treatment program combining diet and exercise recommendations with the use of guaifenesin, a well-known medication available over the counter. Download DescriptionFibromyalgia is a painful disorder for which mainstream medicine has no solution other than heavy, and often ineffective, use of painkillers, along with lifestyle changes. It affects 20 million Americans, with high rates of occurrence in women. Related to rheumatoid arthritis, it too is an autoimmune disorder involving muscular pain, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, and depression. 'What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia' is the first book to offer a treatment program combining diet and exercise recommendations with the use of guaifenesin,a well-known medication available over the counter. A common ingredient in cough medicine, guaifenesin is so safe it is one of the few drugs in the Physicians' Desk Reference (PDR) with no known side effects listed. Dr. St. Amand was inspired by his own fibromyalgia to research available treatments, and he developed this revolutionary program as a result. Over 4 decades of his research culminate in this program--which treats the causes of the condition, not just the symptoms. It has successfully eliminated symptoms in 80 percent of his patients' cases. Dr. St. Amand has discovered how to put fibromyalgia into remission so patients can return to their normal lives, and shares the secret for the first time in this book.
