1 – THE USUAL APPROACH OF FIBROMYALGIA

When most people find out they have FMS, they feel relieved and worried at the same time. It is a relief to know why they have been feeling so bad for such a long time, and it is a worry because they are told that there's no cure. Now that there is a name put on what they suffer, the good news is that they are not anymore told that "it's all in your head" (however, some doctors still believe that, and some husbands may stick to this idea), but, in spite of that, the bad news is that they will be in any case prescribed an antidepressant drug which they may not agree to take. And if they do take the antidepressant, aware of its side effects, it is still a worry not to know how soon they will be feeling better, and that they may never really get better.

Besides anti-depressor or mood-altering drugs, the patients suffering from fibromyalgia receive a large number of medications, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, narcotics, analgesics, and sleeping pills. These are symptomatic-based medications and palliative treatments which all fail to have any impact on the underlying disease. About 90% of fibromyalgic patients use complementary or alternative therapies. One has to keep in mind that some products are never appropriate for some patients due to concomitant disease states, potential drug interactions, or other clinical factors.

Nonpharmacological approaches can be useful to some patients, including hydrotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, hypnosis, and support groups. Exercise might offer significant benefit, but many patients have a hard time maintaining an exercise program.

FMS requires a highly individualized approach. What works for one person may not work for another person.

Treating fibromyalgia is exasperating for patients and practitioners. Treatments options are limited, made of trials and errors. The best efforts meet with little success when treating fibromyalgia. This condition is a frequent source of frustration. The number and variability of the symptoms together with normal blood tests and helpless treatments urge to believe that theses patients have emotional or psychological reasons for their symptoms.

Because of the inconsistent efficacy of symptom-based drugs, the patient's life enters a downward spiral of pain, depression, fatigue, and desperation, together with remorse about the person he or she used to be. The patients can't keep up with their usual physical, intellectual and recreational routines, and most of them have to withdraw from most activity and are leading a sedentary life with minimum exertion and limited social contact. Most patients report the occasional "good day' during which they feel that their fatigue has abated and their pain has lessened, but attempts to resume previously abandoned activities invariably result in aggressive return of symptoms, often experienced as worse than before.

As a significant number of fibromyalgia sufferers do not respond adequately to the traditional approach therapy, or experience intolerable side effects, there is, therefore, a need to turn to a total different approach (in adjunction, or not, to their usual therapy).

More and more frequently, because GUAIFENESIN has gained popularity lately, new diagnosed patients look for a trained doctor in the GUAIFENESIN protocol, and start, for most of them, what will be a gradual recovery and a return to full function, back again to a normal quality of life, back to the person they used to be.

 

2 – A NEW THERAPEUTIC APPROACH : THE GUAIFENESIN

Fibromyalgia is a metabolic disease.

We have to cease considering fibromyalgia as an incurable disease. A conventional treatment that comes from the USA has changed the life of thousands of fibromyalgic patients during the past 20 years. For the past twelve years, I have devoted my career to the diagnosis of fibromyalgia, and to his remarkable effective treatment by GUAIFENESIN. Many testimonies of my patients and thousands of others, through the medias, who have been successfully treated on the five continents, have finally convinced the skeptics. 

GUAIFENESIN reverses the disease. It treats the actual biological disturbance that produces the disease spectrum, not merely its symptoms. The GUAIFENESIN protocol is the result of four decades of research done in the States by Doctor R. Paul St. Amand and his team (www.fibromyalgiatreatment.com). He has treated thousands of patients who have traveled from all over the world seeking relief from this debilitating disease. GUAIFENESIN flushes harmful metabolic debris out of the body, and the symptoms and pain reverse and disappear completely in most patients. Other patients resume a normal lifestyle with minimal residual problems.

To compare with a car engine, a normal person functions properly with octane 95, but a fibromyalgic person is building up constantly octane 98 in his cells, and that explains all his symptoms and dysfunctions. GUAIFENESIN reverses the metabolic and energetic process, bringing the cells to work properly again with octane 95. Most of the time this therapeutic approach of treating the metabolic underlying cause is helpful and complete when used correctly.       

This is not to say that recovery occurs immediately. Not only is it necessary to find the effective dosage of GUAIFENESIN, there are also other crucial factors that influence the outcome of the treatment.

GUAIFENESIN has no side effects, and is well tolerated. Primum non nocere – above all do not harm. GUAIFENESIN can be given at any age, from very young children to elderly people, as well during the nine months of pregnancy and all through lactation. There is no treatment currently available that is as safe or has enjoyed such a high level of success.
