I just wanted to share my story on my fibromyalgia 🙂
I have been told by so many throughout my life that I am LAZY. but I was FATIGUED. So, my mom and I tried all kinds of different herbal and ‘natural’ things that costs thousands of dollars a year. Then I moved out of home and had to pay for this stuff myself and couldn’t afford it all, so started seeing a Chiropractor, who helped a little with some of the pain. Then I got married and my sweet husband has again spent THOUSANDS each year trying anything to get me better. Each thing along the way helped for a little while. But inevitably, the pain and fatigue would come back, and be worse than before. 2 years ago I thought it was all because of Endometriosis, and after trying so many medications, pills and surgeries, I had to have a hysterectomy. I thought it was going to make everything better. And for about 8 months, it did improve things considerably… until things started to go down hill. I was walking about an hour or two a day, and feeling fine, and then slowly, I could only do 45 minutes, then 30 minutes, etc. Now I don’t have the energy to go for a walk at all. I begin to feel nauseous, light headed, get very flushed and dizzy and have to sit wherever it is that I am. I have sat on the road a few times, and then ended up in bed by the time I could get myself home. SO I started to see a Naturopath who promised all kinds of amazing results. And THOUSANDS of dollars later I did feel a little better for a few months. Couldn’t walk yet though!
I remember sitting beside my best friend and visiting with her sister in law. This lady has Fibro and was explaining a couple of things and I started to ask questions. She referred me to this protocol and the Fibromyalgia Treatment Center website. As I went through all the symptoms on there, I wanted to hope, but just couldn’t. My friend sat me down and told me this is the answer, this is what I have. I trust her completely, and so I made the appointment with a mapper in Edmonton. Sure enough, I have Fibro. It was the most emotional day I have had in so long! Just to know there is a name for what I have. That there is a medication that might work, and it all made so much sense when I read the book. The Doctor, St Amand has been researching and treating his fibro and thousands of fibro patients for some 40 years!! And people are reversing symptoms!!
I started on the Guaifenesin and the Protocol Sept 2011 (one month ago from writing this), and I will never look back! The first thing I noticed was that I could sleep through the night, then recently I have started to have an hour or 2 a day where I feel so much energy it’s amazing!!! I just RUN around getting as much done as I possibly can when i get those bursts. And you know the fun thing? I don’t have to pay for it later!!! YAY!!! I got re-mapped and found that 4 bumps are gone in my left thigh, and that would explain why I can sleep on my side again!!
Don’t get me wrong, this is a process, and I am going to be up and down for a long time, but now there is HOPE!!! each time I have some horrible pain, now I know it’s because some phosphate buildup is being pulled out, and that eventually that pain is never going to come back again! now I can endure pain with HOPE!!! I am so thankful to the Lord for this protocol, for Dr St Amand, Guaifenesin, and my support group. you all are such an encouragement to me! thank you thank you thank you!! 🙂
