Book Review: 'The Fibro Fix' Looks at Determining True Fibromyalgia Diagnoses

TheFibroFixDr. David M. Brady, ND, CD, CCN, DACBN- has decades of experience as a leading naturopathic medical physician, board certified nutritionist, and professor. He is in practice at Whole Body Medicine in Fairfield, Connecticut, and also is the vice president of Health Sciences and director of the Human Nutrition Institute at the University of Bridgeport.

Chronic pain affects over 100 million Americans, while even more suffer from ongoing fatigue. The combination of the two, called “fibromyalgia,” has largely remained a mysterious and confusing disease that more than 30 million Americans suffer from. While sufferers may share similar symptoms—including achiness, pain, fatigue, sleep deprivation, depression, and intestinal distress—not all share the same condition, which is where the confusion begins. Research reveals that over 2/3 of patients have received a misdiagnosis and are continuing to suffer from lack energy, and a myriad of other symptoms, without any hopes for a pain-free future.

Leading naturopathic medical doctor and nutritionist Dr. David Brady has set out to change that. He has devised a protocol to help patients determine if they are suffering from fibromyalgia or one of the other root causes often misdiagnosed as fibromyalgia. Dr. Brady has expertly treated tens of thousands of fibromyalgia patients over the past 25 years using a life-changing integrative approach detailed in The Fibro Fix : Get to the Root of Your Fibromyalgia and Start Reversing Your Chronic Pain and Fatigue. Dr. Brady’s individualized, holistic, and customized approach helps fibromyalgia sufferers find a pathway to recovery once and for all.

Unlike most doctors who are quick to prescribe painkillers and antidepressants, Dr. Brady takes a comprehensive holistic approach which first emphasizes natural and lifestyle solutions to treating chronic pain and fatigue. In The Fibro Fix, Dr. Brady introduces a revolutionary 21-day treatment program to help readers uncover the real, underlying cause of sufferer’s pain and fatigue, determining if, in fact, they suffer from fibromyalgia or from one of the conditions commonly misdiagnosed as the disease. Dr. Brady then presents three simple initial steps towards recovery: detoxification, diet, and movement, to start relieving symptoms for good. The plan then offers deeper, long-term solutions, including both medications and natural approaches, designed to address the specific root cause of the individual’s problems, so that they can get back to feeling their best. He also includes delicious recipes, movement & exercise guides, supplement information, stress management techniques, and medication guidance, when needed.

The Fibro Fix reveals the key to solving chronic global pain and helps readers regain their strength, energy, and hope for a pain-free future.
