Now four months into our Fibromyalgia treatment….

Now four months into our Fibromyalgia treatment, both Greg and I have had a 25% reduction overall in our visible nodules – many are completely gone! I am so thrilled that we both will feel so much better soon!

We started a fibromyalgia reversal protocol that is working and want to share our results and a snap shot of the protocol with you. Most people, ourselves included until recently, truly do not understand the nature of this disease, the fact that it is a syndrome and genetic, or how to recognize it and effectively treat it.

One of my friends at church, who is a chiropractor, gave me the name of a doctor in Marin, CA, who successfully treated one of her patients for fibro, Dr. Melissa Congdon. Dr. Melissa suffered from fibro, was severely disabled by it, and has sufficiently recovered from it to now devote her practice to treating folks with fibro. Both her mother and daughter had it as well and have recovered.

She had me read this book before coming to her, What your doctor may not tell you about fibromyalgia, by Dr. Paul St. Amand, 2nd or 3rd editions. Reading his book was a life validating and changing experience for both of us. Dr. Amand has been researching and effectively treating patients with fibro for years. He himself and several of his family members had the disease.

His research found that fibro is an all-pervasive syndrome affecting the whole body and it is genetic. My mom had 85% of the symptoms and was truly tormented by them. Greg, my husband, his sister, as well as my sister have it. We all have a myriad of symptoms, some similar, some not. Most of my chronic sitting and standing issues, as well as chronic back pain, lack of stamina and energy I now realize are due to fibro. I have been struggling with pain and chronic fatigue my whole life.

What causes fibro? Patients with fibro have a genetic flaw in their kidneys. We are not able to release phosphates and these phosphates combine with water and calcium to form nodules in muscles, tendons and organs! These then cause a myriad of problems and pain as the phosphates build up over a lifetime.

The cure is taking a non-toxic medicine, quaifenison (the drug in musinex) – which allows the kidneys to finally release phosphates. Quaifenison combined with eliminating salicylates (which block the guaifenison from working) from one’s skin/oral products is the protocol, which is well outlined in the book.

One is supposed to feel worse initially until the body has released enough of the stored phosphates and can effectively keep up with the elimination of phosphates. The first four months were pretty intense and we are just now starting to have some better days. As time goes on – better days become the norm! For every year you are on quaifenison – 6 years of stored phosphates are released.

Dr. Amand is 84 years old and will be retiring soon. He and those he works with have trained others how to map the nodules, follow the protocol and have set up an online support network for folks – all in his book. We also keep a daily diary of our progress.
When I read Dr. Amand’s book I knew intuitively his protocol would work. I recommend you buy and read this book and even contact Dr. Melissa if you live in or near the San Francisco Bay Area to talk with her about how to better treat your fibro.

Here is her information:
Dr. Melissa Congdon, MD
500 Tamal Plaza, Suite 507
Corte Madera, CA 94925

We are looking forward to a much brighter future and wish you the same!

  1. This is really interesting Veronica. My mother suffers from fibre and i’ve been at a loss as to how to help her. Her doctors prescribe her pills but she’s really sensitive to side effects almost 100% of the time and i’m usually very skeptical when it comes to treatments of the “your doctor doesn’t want you to know” variety.

    I am going to bring this up with my mom and her doctors and we’ll see how things go. I pray this’ll make the difference for her that it seems to be making for you.

    Thanks Veronica 🙂

    PS: I’m also in the process of reading your book and so far i’m having a blast with it and i enjoyed your insights to the question i asked you when i called in on Ancient Faith Today.
    God bless

    1. Dear Evan,

      Glad you are enjoying my book! Regarding fibro and the book. A lot of doctors do not know that much about fibro – mine did not – they are reading the book now and listening.

      I suggest both you and your mom read the book before talking to your MD. It is written by a man, who himself had fibro and has successfully treated 40,000 + patients.

      The protocol is working for my husband and me, but is challenging for the first year or so because you get worse before you start to feel better. It is all explained in the book. I have been on the protocol for almost 9 months and have cleared many of my fibro nodules – have more to go. I am now starting to have a few good days or parts of days, which is very encouraging!

      There is a great support network on line connected to the protocol as well.

      God bless and thanks for your participation on AFR and my blog,
