Book Description

17 Jan 2013
Treatment for fibromyalgia has progressed in leaps and bounds over the past 10 years as recognition of the condition increases. FM is now the second or third most common diagnosis made by British rheumatologists, and was listed as one of the three most common diagnoses in a survey of Canadian rheumatologists. It is probably more common than these figures suggest. It's now recognised that symptoms can be greatly improved by proper management. This book is packed with information about the best medications and self-help therapies available, with a strong focus on improving symptoms, including pain and aching muscles, fatigue and poor sleep, IBS, joint stiffness, headaches and migraine, urinary frequency, dizziness, sensitivity and cognitive problems. Other topics include: neurological dysfunctions in fibromyalgia; how to reduce stiffness and fatigue; coping with other problems such as addressing anxiety, depression and stress; how exercise can help; pacing and relaxation; a healthy diet, including intolerances, allergies and supplements; natural remedies

More About the Author

I was born in Bradford, West Yorkshire (at Station House on Laisterdyke railway station) and have a younger brother, called Glenn. After marrying, I moved to Baildon, Shipley, and had my three sons Mark, James and Matthew. I took nine happy years off work with my little ones, after which I found employment as a Revenue Officer at the Accounts Office in Shipley. Unfortunately, in 1991, I became very ill with fibromyalgia and spent most of my time either in bed or attempting to research the condition. After joining my local fibromyalgia support group, I started writing the monthly newsletter. It dawned on me then that my articles could be put into a book, so I began the arduous but very enjoyable task of writing 'Living with Fibromyalgia', which took four long years. I have written 17 further books and greatly enjoyed being so productive. In 2007, however, I decided that I needed to move to a warmer climate to help my condition. My boys were grown up by then and living their own lives, so my husband and I moved to Tenerife where I began walking along the prom every day - very pleasant indeed. I write articles for the Canarian Weekly newspaper, and am the agony aunt for that same publication. I also write for FaMily, the UKfibromyalgia.com monthly newsletter. My latest book is 'Natural Treatments for Arthritis', which is due out in March 2011.
I enjoy writing greatly, and thank all the people who have read my books.
Christine

5.0 out of 5 stars Help and Info at last!! 18 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Here is information and help in a clearly understandable form all in one volume. This book could have been written for me! It gives information which I have not been able to get from doctors, possibly because they are so busy with so many patients. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who suffers from this horrible ailment. Especially good is the section on how to try to help non sufferers understand your problems,and a very good guide to alternative remedies.Many thanks to a very brave lady!!

By D&D TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
To me, it's shocking that almost no mainstream doctors and so few "experts", much less writers of books like this, are aware that fibromyalgia/M.E./CFS symptoms are all symptoms of low thyroid (hypothyroid). Shocking.

There are no lab tests for many causes of low thyroid, so at least 80% of us are mis-diagnosed, because your doctor will only treat lab tests, not you. More than 50% of us have low thyroid yet mainstream medicine claims only 5% of us are hypothyroid.

Of course I don't expect you to believe me, see for yourself with a very simple home self-test: the FREE basal (at rest) temperature self-test is THE gold standard for low thyroid problems and - with your symptoms - means more than any lab test (although most conventional doctors, including endos, won't agree but then they're not trained to understand thyroid problems - thyroiduk[dot]org[dot]uk offers a list of the very few thyroid sympathetic doctors in this country).

"Fibromyalgia" and "ME/CFS" are just names, not diagnoses. A real diagnosis means there is a cure (something that has been brushed away since medicine has so few cures - just synthetic drugs that oppose symptoms, all of which have "side" effects, meaning damage they don't want you to think about). Physicians have little or no way to heal or cure chronic health problems, or to provide adequate pain management. This failure means they are becoming obsolete.

The basal temperature home self-test will pick up conditions that current lab tests don't, such as thyroid resistance. Most digital thermometers are not accurate so find a good basal digital thermometer, the kind used by women to identify their fertile days.

4.0 out of 5 stars good information all in one book. 20 July 2014
By Harper
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good book with lots of useful information. I particularly liked the fact that supplements are discussed. I have ordered the 'The Fibromyalgia Healing Diet' book and can't wait for it to arrive.
I have only given this book four stars as it does repeat itself a lot, but I leant a lot from it and shall be asking my Rheumatologist a lot of questions on my next visit.
