From the Back Cover
A comprehensive yet compassionate guide to help you deal with the often-misdiagnosed condition
Fibromyalgia is a frustrating fact of life for millions, yet its bewildering symptoms--including muscle stiffness and pain along with debilitating fatigue and many others--are often misunderstood, misdiagnosed, or simply dismissed. Those who are taken seriously and properly diagnosed still face a complex condition that fits no standard pattern and shows little response to drug treatment. For patients and practitioners alike who feel at a loss, there is hope and help to be found in Fibromyalgia: A Journey Toward Healing.
Chanchal Cabrera, an internationally known herbalist who had fibromyalgia herself, shares her holistic healing program that will help you lessen symptoms and achieve lasting wellness through herbs, diet, and other natural approaches. The book includes essential information on herbal remedies as well as nutrition, sleep management, therapeutic massage, visualization, and light therapy.
In Fibromyalgia, you will learn:
- What fibromyalgia is and what causes it
- How to create a treatment plan, set realistic goals, and track your progress
- How to find a qualified practitioner to help you deal with your condition
- How to reduce your reliance on medical drugs
Fibromyalgia also includes the author's own healing journey and other case histories that provide examples of the program's potential to improve your quality of life.

The book has pinpointed many ailments which continue to trouble me, such as irritable bowel,sleep apnea and painful areas all over my body. However, I am even more convinced that the removeal of my thyroid was the trigger for my illness.
If you suffer with fibromalgia, this book is a must!
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
very good detailed healthy living information.
if your an average health nut wanting good information
and trying to move your diet and welfare to the next
level i reccomend this book.
Part II is devoted to the practical issues; she wisely starts with diet, then moves to herbal therapies and closes with self care. Each chapter is didactically structured so you are drawn into the subject smoothly and convinced, ready for change!
Chanchal Cabrera puts her words where her mouth is (that didn't sound right!)and provides a whole chapter of resources, where you can go for further help, and for implementing a herbal therapy. Although appendix two is a long list of herbs, how to use, etc, I found that I am more comfortable with a reputable practitioner who can design the herbal treatment and oversee my progress (under sources.)
The author's own personal experience, coupled with her impressive academic and professional background make this a very credible source. My wholehearted recommendation on this read.
Cheers and stay healthy!
Has a section crammed with information on the treatment of fibromyalgia using natural herbal medicines. This really is a must have book for those of us with FMS.
