    • Health & Fitness

Living with fibromyalgia or any invisible illness is no easy feat. Despite the leaps in medical advancements, those who grapple with these conditions can often feel misunderstood and underrepresented. This episode unravels the harrowing realities of living with these illnesses, drawing stark parallels between the treatment of Neurasthenia, a condition known a century ago, and the current approach to fibromyalgia. We wrap up the series this week. Learn about the critical need for a holistic approach that combines medical management with a biopsychosocial and spiritual perspective. We delve into the role of conventional and lifestyle medicine and alternative options like functional medicine.

But the intrigue doesn't stop there! We illuminate the intricate dance between neurological, physiological, and environmental factors that contribute to invisible illnesses like fibromyalgia. We unravel the hypervigilant awareness of stimuli by those afflicted and the consequences it can bring. You will learn some of the human body's intricate design, and how slight shifts can lead to suffering. This episode is a must-listen for anyone looking to broaden their understanding of fibromyalgia and other invisible illnesses.
