    Thank you Dr.

    I know some folks who have this disorder and refuse to change their diets. Its frustrating. I will be showing this article to them.

    Great Job….I am so glad to see sites like this popping up all over the place – When I was diagnosed 5 years ago, I had a difficult time finding info. Especially on diet – even though I knew that diet was key – but had no idea what diet.

    I went vegan over a year ago, and it helped alot- but then I found Dr. Fuhrman – Eat to Live – and that has changed my life…..I have only been following it now since September – so 4 months – and my fibro has decreased by at least half – I am training for a half marathon – doing a 2 mile event next week – Literally a miracle….

    Please check out my blog as well….www.fighting-hae-fibro.blogspot.com

    Thanks for helping get the word out – Nutritional Density Vegan Diet is KEY!!!

    Oh my god.. I pity those so called ‘folks’ you know!!! It is also VERY frustrating to have so called friends that although they mean well they add to the problems of fibromyalgia by coming up with quick cures and quack cures!!!
    Most people with Fibromyalgia would cut there right arm off if they thought it would cure them. Please be assured MOST would do anything possible to help themselves and MOST have gone down this route to be left downhearted. SO before making comments like this, step into the shoes of someone with fibromyalgia even just for an hour! Educate yourself of Fibromyalgia too.. it it was that easily ‘cured’ or helped believe me they would be all doing this!

    Great article. Lots of wisdom being spoken here.

    As someone that sees fibro patients on a daily basis, I see people that suffer from food allergies/sensitivities; most commonly to wheat/gluten, dairy, eggs and/or soy. When these offending foods (if problematic) are eliminated from the diet, pain and fatigue tend to lift…causing a dramatic shift in people’s symptoms. (It’s dramatic and almost miraculous). [This might be why a vegan diet helps so much, as possible offending foods are eliminated from the diet].

    Best way to know what foods are problematic is to get tested. Also, subclincal hypothyroid treatment is often needed. Even autoimmune thyroid is very common in the patients I see. Have your doctor, if he/she is open to it, check your thyroid antibodies. (Oftentimes, that is the missing link in solving difficult-to-treat health problems; or at least that has been my experience).

    Solving fibromyalgia is not easy, but very possible. Chances of healing go way up as the causative factors are discovered and properly dealt with. (I’m in no way claiming a cure, just stating some of what has helped my patients. There are, of course, many other factors to consider.)

    Thank you for this article. I’d also like to say that it can become hard when you’re
    in school and merely starting out to initiate a long credit history.

    There are many pupils who are just simply trying to live and have long or good credit history are often a difficult issue to have.
