    At one time I had fibromyalgia. Fortunately, I’d attended a lecture many years before and learned how easy it is to treat, yet many people are bedridden or forced to stop working because of it. At that time, I’d never heard of this condition but listened attentively in case I ever met someone who had it so I could tell them how to get rid of it. I was told that it was due to a toxic liver. In an effort to preserve itself, the liver dumps the toxins it can’t deal with into the bloodstream which go into your joints, muscles, etc., etc., which causes the distress. All you need to do is cleanse your liver, and then it will recall all the toxins it had previously dumped into your joints and muscles, process them in the liver’s normal manner and that will be the end of your fibromyalgia. I detoxed for a year (I admit that it’s not for the faint of heart) — no flour, sugar, coffee, tea (except herbal), alcohol, etc., etc. It made much sense to me that this would be the solution, and it worked!!! The pain and stiffness were finally gone, but overnight in bed my body seemed to stiffen, and I had to roll out of bed onto the floor. By the time I reached my bedroom door, I was flexible again and thought that I could live with this. Around that time I attended a lecture given by Dr. Zoltan Rona on “Serrapeptase” which helped inflammatory conditions. I thought that I had nothing to lose and after 12 days on “Serrapeptase” I woke up one morning, threw the covers off and got out of bed. I realized what I’d just done without rolling onto the floor, and I did the “happy dance.” Of course, after detoxing for a year, my body was in the best condition to accept “Serrapeptase,” and perhaps that’s why it worked so quickly. These days, I take a container of “Serrapeptase” each year to put out any fires before they begin. I checked with Dr. Rona, and he said that he takes it during the year too, and that it’s perfectly safe. Anyway, my fibromyalgia has long gone, and I hope I’ve helped your understanding of the condition and that you can help others.

      Hi, Carol!
      Would you mind sharing the liver cleanse you used?
      I have had Fibro. for 6 yrs and have spent about $12K on supplements, books, equipment, magazines, exericse supplies, etc. Anything to get better. Not much has helped.
      I started colonics and that helped. Lots of yeast (Candida) inside.
      But I know now a healthy liver will help tremendously. I’m just unsure how to start.
      And I am desperate for relief. Fibro. gets so burdensome. It’s defeating. And I cry often because of it.
      Thank you, Carol! I appreciate your time and efforts. Greatly looking fwd to hearing from you.
