According to the 2010 Canadian Community Health Survey there are 450,000 people in Canada who have fibromyalgia. In the United States, there are an estimated 5 million adults.

This book, written by leading experts in fibromyalgia, gives common sense tools that will help fibromyalgia patients help themselves on to a road to improvement and perhaps recovery. There are few books on fibromyalgia that provide a program for recovery and a cache of antifibromyalgia foods and recipes as successfully as this book. It uses The SEEDS of health approach (Support, Environment, Exercise/Pacing, Diet/Drugs, Sleep) and has shown significant success rates in patients.

The goal of this book is to help patients improve their ability to function and their quality of life.

The book is also a source of support for family and friends.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best for all the sufferers out there! I bought this bought this book about 2 months ago and I it is one of the best I have read regarding fibro and ways to relieve the suffering. I have written up my shopping list and will be trying out the recipes. I have been wanting to change my diet for a while and now I have a guide to help me do it. This book is full of useful information all sufferers of fibro should have. It discusses the syndrome itself, exercise, medications, multiple chemical sensitivity, food and so much. It has recipes and menu plans to follow. I would recommend that anyone looking for a comprehensive book on fibro take a serious look at this one.
