Fibromyalgia (FMS) is an invisible illness that does not discriminate between men, women or children, and affects muscles and their surrounding soft tissue. Chronic musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and extremely tender, sensitive areas of the body are only a fraction of the symptoms that characterize this syndrome.
While the general medical community may not fully understand the root of FMS, there may be answers at a more organic level. At the City of Hope Research Lab near Los Angeles, Dr. St. Amand and his team are currently testing in an attempt to discover information that can lead to a cure for Fibromyalgia sufferers.
Fibromyalgia + DR. SAINT AMAND
Dr. St. Amand believes that patients with Fibromyalgia are likely missing an enzyme needed by the kidneys to effectively remove excess phosphate* from the body. When levels in the bloodstream get too high, the kidney cannot decrease the level due to the defective enzyme, and the phosphate (along with calcium and water) is deposited in “nodules” throughout the body.
This overload of phosphate in the body -- and in the nodules -- is believed to be the cause of the primary symptoms of Fibromyalgia.
Since phosphate overload can occur in the cells throughout our body, this can explain why so many different organs are affected in FMS. And, since the right amount of phosphate is crucial to the production of energy, this can explain why patients feel so tired with Chronic Fatigue.
Dr. St. Amand has measured that Guaifenesin -- the active ingredient in the over-the-counter medication Mucinex -- used in Fibromyalgia patients at the proper dose, removes phosphate from the kidney 6 times faster than without the medication. Used over time, guaifenesin removes the phosphate from these nodules, and symptoms decrease.
Eventually, symptoms disappear as the illness is reversed - something no other than the Guaifenesin Protocol can show.
