Over the last ten plus years, I have had hundreds of patients come in with the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. The sense of hopelessness in these people is palpable but unnecessary. I cover the cause and SOLUTION for those that suffer from this often debilitating condition in my book, How to Recover from Fibromyalgia Syndrome: Real Solutions for a Real Problem. Members will have access to additional information, videos and a comments section to interact with me. Read on and learn the TRUTH about Fibromyalgia. Don’t suffer needlessly.
This is a disease that’s a very popular diagnosis. Why? For one, there is no official cause and it’s supposed to incurable. Wait a second, that might not sound right to you. Good, because it doesn’t sound right to me. Understand that these people are suffering. Their symptoms are absolutely real. But it does not help people to categorize a symptom so it can billed at. Let’s treat people like people.

First off, fibromyalgia has got a history. It used to be called chronic fatigue syndrome, or before that hypochondriacs. Because these people are suffering. They’ve got headaches. They’ve got muscle aches, joint pain, a number of different symptoms. Some of them have digestive issues, Okay? Depression, fatigue. All of these symptoms and they would do test after test after test and not find anything.

Well, let me tell you, now they came up with a diagnosis. 11 of 18 tender spots on the body. Well how about we look at, instead of trying to find a disease, how about we look for the cause of it? Look at this, if you have a muscle pain what are you given? A pain reliever. If you have a muscle spasm what are you given? A muscle relaxer. If you have difficulty in sleeping at night a sleep drug. Are you happy or sad? Because you’re taking three drugs and you still feel bad, Prozac or Welbutrin. Okay. Now you’re taking four drugs, does that upset your stomach? Good, antacids.
Understand, drug after drug after drug is not effective. Find the cause. Now, I’m here to tell you that there’s a cause that’s very consistently missed by most doctors.

How to Recover from Fibromyalgia Syndrome
By Dr. John Bergman
The standard approach that the medical world uses for the standard diseases hasn’t worked and will not work to cure Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS). The standard medical approach is to use medications or physical therapies to deal with the symptoms, and that does NOTHING for the source or the cause of FMS. When you look at what the medical world does to identify a disease like blood tests, x-rays, biopsies, cerebral spinal fluid analysis, virtually every standard test the medical world does shows negative. That is why for years even the existence of FMS was in question. There are now some brain scans that show some positive findings with still no findings that will help the Fibromyalgia patient get a CURE. When I say Cure I mean Cure. If you or someone you know is diagnosed and suffering from FMS there is a way to get back to the natural state of a human being which is Healthy, Pain Free, full of Dynamic Energy, sleeping great and waking refreshed. This natural state of health can never be achieved through dealing with the symptoms of FMS with medications. When you look at the horror that people with FMS have endured you have to feel great compassion. Imagine going to doctor after doctor and negative test after negative test and suffering the whole time, then being sent to the psychiatrist because if the tests are negative it must be a mental condition. These fibromyalgia patients suffer physical pain for me the greatest pain would be not being heard. It is almost a relief to have the diagnosis of FMS so the sufferers are validated with a real disease.
I have had patients as young as 12 years old and up to 63 years old come to me diagnosed with FMS with the average age being between 25 to 45. Every aspect of their lives were affected with this disease, limiting even the most basic of daily activities and family interactions. I have seen relationships torn apart and this black cloud of FMS descend on whole families with just one person with the diagnosis of FMS. This will the affect spouses, siblings, children, and friends of the person suffering with FMS.
Now, the tough part with this is, it’s a disease that, according to medical authorities, is in incurable. The Mayo Clinic definition of Fibromyalgia:
“Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.
Symptoms sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event.
Women are much more likely to develop fibromyalgia than are men. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression.
While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, a variety of medications can help control symptoms.” (Highlights are mine)
Think of this the Mayo Clinic is held up as a great medical authority in this country and they say, “characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues.” And “Symptoms sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress” and “there is no cure for fibromyalgia, a variety of medications can help control symptoms” This view is widely held by most rheumatologists and most medical doctors and even alternative practitioners hold to the same definition.

I believe Dr. Einstein lets look at this disease from a different perspective. That is how I developed the true cure of Fibromyalgia. We are going to go over piece by piece on the cause the symptoms and the solution of FMS. Lets start at the cause…
