Fibro facts

This podcast has been a godsend for me. Fibromyalgia is such a strange condition, and it’s hard to find good solid information about how to live with it. I’m thankful that I don’t seem to suffer as severely as many other people do, but I still find that I have to do the hard work of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This podcast provides helpful information about how to stay healthy and active, as well as lots of facts about the condition itself, what causes it, how to treat it, etc. Thank you!

So good!

I was diagnosed with Fibro a year ago. I’ve just found this show and am really enjoying it. Filled with reminders (that I needed) on how we can avoid flares!

Very helpful

I love how the fibromyalgia is being addressed on a much deeper level then just symptoms and how to treat them. We need to address the cause of the problem and this podcast is very helpful for this
