  • I love the emphasis on holistic medicinal approaches here. I’ve been aware for quite some time that the doctors just don’t know how to treat fibro. It’s much easier to get a diagnosis now than it used to be, when doctors were just simply saying that you’re making up the symptoms and leave you to suffer, but it’s still rather distressing that they don’t have much to offer.

    I personally love the acupressure/acupuncture approach. Although I’ve never had acupuncture, I’ve had good luck with acupressure, and I’ve come to believe that acupuncture might be even more precise. I’ve seen it used with amazing success on animals, and they don’t lie. I recently became acquainted with an acupuncturist, and I’m really considering it for weight loss, depression, and possibly pain control as well.
