Fibromyalgia and muscle pain, your guide to self -treatment, Leon Chaitow, ND, DO

It is absolutely vital for anyone afflicted with a chronic illness to hold on to the fact that their body is a self-healing mechanism. If given the proper conditions in which to do so, the body will heal. That's the core message of this game-changing book. Fibromyalgia affects millions of people in the United States alone. It continues to be tricky to diagnose, but chronic fatigue, cold extremities, impaired memory, and debilitating pain in "pain points" throughout the body are nearly universal. Many people with fibromyalgia also report disrupted sleep, balance problems, muscle twitching and aches, dry mouth, below normal temperature, headaches, white spots on nails, tender neck muscles, abdominal tenderness, PMS, and IBS. Some say it's like having the flu -- all the time. The conventional medical toolkit doesn't have much to offer fibromyalgia's sufferers. Enter this book. Here you will find self-tests and checklists to help you determine whether you are suffering from fibromyalgia and then the most effective self-care approaches to healing, including: massage and bodywork ; elimination and rotation diets ; hypnotherapy and acupuncture ; dry skin brushing, herbs, and homeopathy ; amino acids, antioxidants, and other supplements ; various relaxation techniques ; and many others
