Pain All Over: My Healing Journey From Fibromyalgia

Pain All Over: My Healing Journey From Fibromyalgia

For someone who suffered from #fibromyalgia for seven years, it’s odd that I’ve never really written a post about it. It was such a defining moment in my life, and yet, thankfully, I never let it define me. So I’ve been hesitant to write about it. It happened, it changed the course of my life, and I moved on. But if I never had fibromyalgia, I might not be writing this blog about holistic health and healing.

Fibromyalgia Linked to Extensive Brain Inflammation

Fibromyalgia Linked to Extensive Brain Inflammation

Using PET imaging, a recent investigation by researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital and Karolinska Institutet in Sweden revealed the presence of widespread brain inflammation in patients diagnosed with fibromyalgia.

Who to Trust on Your Healing Journey

I remember when I HAD fibromyalgia how confused I was by what I should try, what I shouldn’t try, who I should trust, and who I shouldn’t trust on this healing journey I’d been suddenly thrust into.

Making Ayurveda Digestible (Pun Intended)

You see, I finally figured out that Ayurveda can be simple or it can be complex. It’s your choice. If you want to dive deep into it like I did (and still do), go for it. But you don’t have to know all the terminology. And guess what You don’t even have to like Indian food! So many people say to me “I just don’t get Ayurveda”. They’re curious, but think that all of the dosha-specific food lists are intimidating (they are) and that they have to know without a shadow of a doubt what their constitution is in order to understand the concepts (they don’t).

Puzzling Out Fibromyalgia and the Epstein-Barr Virus

Puzzling Out Fibromyalgia and the Epstein-Barr Virus

Two years ago I finally sat down and wrote a lengthy article about my healing journey from fibromyalgia. It had been over a decade since that morning when I woke up with “pain all over” and about four years since the pain had subsided. I guess I needed time to ruminate about it. It seems that puzzling out fibromyalgia is something millions of people are doing these days and I hope that I can help put some of the pieces together.

If you or someone you love is suffering from this painful condition, or chronic fatigue, or a thyroid or auto-immune disorder, please take the time to read this article. I was enlightened and I think you will be also.
