The Complete Fibromyalgia Health, Diet Guide & Cookbook
438,900 people in Canada and an estimated 5 million adults in the United States have fibromyalgia.
This book, written by leading experts on fibromyalgia, gives common-sense tools that will help fibromyalgia patients help themselves on the road to improvement and perhaps recovery.
Not so very long ago, fibromyalgia was thought to be a psychosomatic illness — it was all in your head — and received little attention. Although attitudes have begun to change, it’s still difficult to get a doctor to diagnose and treat fibromyalgia.
The goal of this book is to help patients improve their ability to function and their quality of life. This outstanding resource provides the necessary hope, support and resources for a condition that is often misunderstood, left undiagnosed and untreated.
