Fibromyalgia Treatment

Fibromyalgia Treatment Fibromyalgia treatment is complicated, end of story.  Why is it so complicated? Because no two people experience fibromyalgia the same.  The symptoms of fibromyalgia can vary greatly and even the diagnosis is one of my least favorites because it doesn’t tell you what exactly is going on in your body, but rather simply that you have a lot of symptoms going on with widespread pain being the most common or problematic.  In fact there is no real lab test that is considered widely [...]

Wim Hof Method AZ – Review and Reflection

Unfortunately we protect our feet so much from the world we live in that our feet provide very little information to our brains and you may feel more “unstable” without supportive shoes on.  The use of orthotics has skyrocketed, but unless [...]
