Healing Fibromyalgia


I thought I would post a link to the mini documentary that I was the subject of a few years ago.

It began when I was contacted by a graduate student from the University of Texas who was wanting to make a documentary.  The premise was telling the story of surviving life in America as a family dealing with chronic, debilitating illness.  We did not know that during the course of the filming I would discover the secret and finally cure myself of said disease.

Perhaps it was putting a spot light on what we were dealing with, perhaps it was serendipity, I don’t know.  I’m just so very glad that it turned out to be called Healing Fibromyalgia rather than Living with Disease in America.  Oy.  I never watch it.  I haven’t watched it since the first time.  I think I have always been afraid of jinxing myself.  I think I have always been afraid, unwilling to look back for this reason.  This is why I could not write about healing from Fibro until I was in the deepest throws of it again.

I have always believed that everything happens for a reason.  I have wanted to make this site for three years and I am finally doing it.  I am grateful to be making a journal of what it’s like to go through this, of what I have to do and what is hard to do.

Anyhow, here’s the video:

  1. Bonjour
    i really appreciate your sharing this video , and your detail story about fibromyalgia .
    I am 55 years old a father of 3 children and two wonderful grand -daughters. My ‘cursed fibromyalgia’ started 30 years ago , i ended up in complex and so frustrating situation in a different hospitals in Paris for exams and testing , in other word i became a ‘guinea pig’ . The so called specialists in my case proved to be complete ignorant about fibromyalgia and contemptuous . My doctor finally treated me with morphine and paracetamol codeine capsules , i ended up in the ER for intestinal blockage , it was awful and i was so ashamed to have to get an enema for this . There is so much to tell but i am making it short . Of course i have tried all the “miracle cures”, spend hundred of dollars for no avail . Today i have to deal with flares up and , fogy brain , cognitive problems, pains, and muscular weakness .For the IBS i had i did manage this fibro side effect with capsules of powder anis seed and fenel seed , plus tumeric capsules great for intestinal gas and spasmes. For the pain i take paracetamol (not that great ) . Voila i am a rebel to, will fight this together . (Sorry for my funny english , i am french i live in Chef inspector Clouseau country France , you know the Pink Panther ) . So like Clouseau would said , ‘until we meet again’ au revoir . Thank you dear ,hold on and bless you . Robert

  2. I am wondering how you are feeling now? How long did you take the skull cap and saint john’s wort before you started feeling better? Have you heard of this protocol helping any one else with Fibro? Wondering what your feelings about the connection to fibro and fluoride poisoning? Thanks for sharing your story with all of us, I am going on 13 years of the fibro hell, with 3 kids who only know me as compromised it makes me so sad. Because of my illness i have a small circle of friends and now know 7 women with Fibro that is way too many for such a small circle Jennifer

  4. Have you ever at any time thought of including more films
    in your blog site posts to maintain the audience more entertained?
    I necessarily mean I just read throughout the whole post of yours
    and it had been pretty great but considering that I am more of
    the visual learner

  5. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.
