Dr. R. Paul St. Amand is a renowned endocrinologist and has taught at UCLA for over 43 years. He is currently assistant clinical professor at the UCLA School of Medicine, where he has developed a remarkable treatment for a painful disease that affects millions of people.
Muscular pain, fatigue, bladder problems, insomnia, and hypoglycemia are all symptoms of fibromyalgia. But for many, the disease has not been properly diagnosed, and treatments are ineffectual. After 40 years of research, Dr. St. Amand concludes that the best prescription is guaifenesin, a relatively simple drug. When this drug is coupled with diet modifications, the debilitating effects of fibromyalgia can be halted and even reversed.
If you or a member of your family suffers from fibromyalgia, this book is essential listening. Dr. St. Amand's clear medical explanations are accompanied by personal testimonies from patients. Audie Award-winning narrator Nelson Runger, acclaimed for his readings of nonfiction and technical texts, makes it even easier to absorb the critical information.
