Fibromyalgia, A 3-Part Video Series

It is estimated that 1 in 50 Americans suffers from fibromyalgia, a disorder that causes widespread muscle pain throughout the body, fatigue, sleep disturbances and cognitive dysfunction. But because fibromyalgia shares symptoms with many other illnesses it is often difficult to diagnose and can easily be overlooked as a possible cause of pain.

If you are one of the millions of people suffering from this condition, you know that there is nothing more defeating than being told by doctors that there is nothing wrong with you, or that what you are experiencing is all in your head. Fortunately, new research has shed light on the inflammatory process behind conditions such as fibromyalgia, which in turn points to new ways of treating this disorder and restoring your health.

In this video series Dr. Erika LeBaron explains:

– The history and symptoms of fibromyalgia;
– The challenges of accurately diagnosing FM and distinguishing it from other disorders with which it shares so many symptoms;
– What new research is telling us about the relationship between inflammation and chronic pain disorders; and,
– What types of integrative therapies would be most effective to manage your symptoms and improve your health.
