Today we will be doing a second update on the new findings relative to Fibromyalgia.
Upwards of 5% of the American population suffers with this debilitating disorder, characterized by severe pain all of the body, and other symptoms such as depression, headaches, and IBS.  Last week we discussed the new data relative to scientific articles demonstrating that a significant percentage of fibromyalgia patients have dysfunction or damage to the nerves which transmit pain, termed small fiber neuropathy.
This week we will be discussing “hot off the press” research articles discussing other new findings regarding Fibromyalgia, and how this relates to new clinical interventions.
Please tune in and enjoy.  Please forward us any questions here on our website or go to our Power Health Facebook page
