Learn how to get your life back with my new Fibromyalgia Recovery Program:
Discover Secrets To Manage Fibromyalgia Pain

Struggling with pain and fatigue, no matter what you try?

Do you feel like you are not the partner or parent you want to be because of your symptoms? Are you missing out on the fun things in life because you are exhausted, foggy, and in pain? You’re not alone.

Many doctors do not know how to accurately diagnose or treat fibromyalgia. Some doctors think fibromyalgia is all in our heads, or that we are lazy or exaggerating our symptoms. I’m here to share with you that there are many options to treating fibromyalgia other than prescription drugs that often don’t work in the long term and can have terrible side effects.

Through living with fibromyalgia myself and specializing in fibromyalgia treatment in my medical practice since 2009, I’ve learned that there’s another way to effectively treat fibromyalgia symptoms.

I want to share this knowledge with you to help you understand your condition, take steps to find what works best for you, and gain confidence that you can feel well again.

I Created This Program SPECIFICALLY for you if:

Program Outline - 8 instructional videos plus pdf summaries

This first module will introduce the characteristics of this common pain condition, typical lab test results, typical non-pain symptoms in fibromyalgia, and the significance of growing pains

 

Notes include: 

  • Results of research studies of brain scans of fibromyalgia patients
  • A review of fibromyalgia in the Journal of the American Medical Association
  • Additional research studies on the genetics of the syndrome (fibromyalgia is not your fault!)

We’ll deepen our understanding of fibromyalgia by exploring its root causes (the answers may lie in our genes). We’ll also address the role of adverse childhood events on fibromyalgia symptoms.

This section will orient you to the most common methods of diagnosing fibromyalgia, and why some of them (i.e. the tender point exam) should not be used. We’ll review the American College of Rheumatology Diagnostic Test, the currently available blood test for fibromyalgia (and one in development), and finally Dr. St. Amand’s mapping evaluation for fibromyalgia diagnosis: it’s 100% accurate, and can diagnose fibromyalgia earlier than other methods or in those people who have more fatigue than pain. Notes include: 

  • PDF Handout of the Diagnostic Questionnaire you can bring to your doctor for a fibromyalgia diagnosis
  • Links to information about the diagnostic blood test in development
  • Details of Dr. St. Amand’s mapping exam

We’ll continue on to address misconceptions of fibromyalgia by reviewing research study results that prove fibromyalgia is a real condition and is not just in our heads. The results of these studies of fibromyalgia patients show:

  • Brain swelling
  • Decreased connection between two areas of the brain causing increased pain
  • Altered brain chemical levels
  • Decreased collagen in our muscles
  • Different bacteria in our intestines (a unique microbiome)
  • Decrease in our muscle’s ability to get the normal amount of oxygen during exercise
  • Increased pressure and swelling in our shoulder muscles

The first Game Changer is Dr. St. Amand’s hypoglycemia diet. This module will introduce the diet and explain how this food plan can help you keep your body sugar steady, avoid blood sugar crashes, increase energy, decrease pain, and improve mood and sleep. We’ll also explain how to determine if you should do a 3-week trial of this food plan.

Notes include: 

  • a PDF List of Allowed Foods on the Hypoglycemia Diet

Next on the list for improving quality of life for fibromyalgia patients in exercise. In this section, you’ll learn how to use exercise to increase your number and function of mitochondria to increase energy, improve mood, and maybe improve sleep and decrease pain (and perhaps slow or prevent vision loss). We’ll also share advice on how to successfully work with a trainer.

Notes include: 

  • A step-by-step program to increase your workout length to get in shape without crashing
  • Link to a study showing exercise can protect vision
  • Recommended resources for yoga and chair yoga videos

This section is about guaifenesin: what is it, and how is it used to treat fibromyalgia? Dr. Congdon and the majority of her patients have found the guaifenesin protocol to be the MOST important part of their recovery! We’ll share a guide on how to use the guaifenesin protocol to reverse your symptoms and feel better over time.

Notes include: 

  • A comprehensive guide on how to start the protocol and continue to make progress over time (including the correct type and dose of guaifenesin to take, and how to identify substances that block its action)
  • Links to companies that sell salicylate-free products
  • A link to Bonnie’s YouTube video of her personal journey on the guaifenesin protocol
  • A link to Dr Congdon’s fibromyalgia documentary
  • Links to the four physicians and one RN trained by Dr. St. Amand on how to map (accurately diagnose fibromyalgia) and administer the protocol
  • Information about the two Facebook groups dedicated to helping people follow the protocol as written, and links to international Facebook support groups
  • PDF Symptom Journal template

Studies show people with fibromyalgia spend a great deal of time in the fight or flight response, and this can increase our symptoms. This module gives examples of many therapies you can do at home that can help you feel better quickly, and these techniques might decrease the severity of your fibromyalgia symptoms over time.

Notes include: 

  • Information about meditation
  • Types of relaxing breathwork, yoga, limbic system balancing, and other nervous system balancing techniques

Other medications exist to treat Fibromyalgia, including LDN and supplements such as Vitamin D and Magnesium. This section will address the problem with opiates, including research showing the 3 FDA-approved prescription medications for fibromyalgia medications might not work long term. We’ll also cover information about muscle relaxants and antidepressants, how LDN might significantly decrease fibromyalgia symptoms, and the use of cannabis.

Notes include: 

  • Research studies on opiates, and other prescription medications, cannabis, and vitamin D, LDN and
  • A list of LDN-literate prescribers in many countries
  • Discussion points for vitamin D and magnesium supplements to bring up with your doctor

45% of people with fibromyalgia have obstructive sleep apnea, even if they are not overweight and do not snore. If you are not getting enough oxygen to your brain and body at night, you will not feel better no matter what treatments you try for fibromyalgia.

Notes include: 

  • Link to Dr. Rosenfeld’s sleep study research on fibromyalgia patients
  • More resources about the importance of getting enough oxygen to your brain and body

Fibromyalgia patients are at increased risk of low thyroid function. Here, we’ll cover what thyroid specialists say about the most accurate test of thyroid function and the thyroid tests you should ask your doctor to order.

Notes include: 

  • Studies linking fibromyalgia and increased risk of developing hypothyroidism
  • The test results range for optimal thyroid function (taken from multiple sources)

You’ve made it! To conclude, we’ll summarize the main takeaway points Dr. Congdon covered in the course and reviewed the next steps on your path of managing fibromyalgia to feeling well again.
