Hello, my name is Kim Oben.
In August 2010, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Thinking back over the last 20 years, I've had Fibro pain and symptoms since my teens. I had learned to live with it mostly because the medicines the doctors prescribed over the years never worked well. I decided I had enough. I needed to do something different for myself, something that worked. I found Dr Muhich who followed Dr St Amand's proven protocol to decrease pain and get back a good quality of life.
This was the start of my journey. Before, my pain levels were 7-10 everyday 24 hours a day. Unrelenting, non-stop painThere were days when I had to call in sick. I have researched and tried many products with little or no success. My greatest success came with Guaifenesin! I began with a change to how I eat, using a strict hypoglycemic diet, eating only fresh foods, no boxed or processed. No red meats only chicken, turkey or fish. No dairy - no cheese, no milk and no yogurt. No chocolate, no candy, cookies, cakes or pies. My life dependant on sugar was over! I can honestly say I do not miss sugar.
Chemical removal was a huge part of my success. Eliminating PEG's, products containing mint or 'ment' and of course removing all products that have 'sal' in the ingredients. This actually was my first step and that was when I became a believer of this guai protocol. After reading the chapter on chemicals in "What your doctor may not tell you about Fibromyalgia' I cleared out my bathroom of the chemicals and within 3 days my 15 year headache was GONE! Who knew people didn't have daily non-stop headaches. I wanted to know more!
That's when I found Dr Muhich in Scottsdale AZ only 2 hours away from Tucson. Worth the drive.
Dr Muchich did my first mapping and found that of the 18 fibro points I had 16. After a purge of my system I began the guaifenesin. Below are a succession of my mappings. A mapping is physical examination where an experienced trained provider can locate areas of toxin build up under the skin and areas of pain. Pay close attention to the February and March mappings! See the amazing changes? I was getting better. :)
I did add a mineral product to my water, it made the water molecules smaller and easier for my body to absorb. Gave me added energy also with calcium and magnesium.
BTW - I have eliminated prescription medicines ! Using only guaifenesin which is an over the counter medication. That and supplements, I can say I am under control. With my 1 year Guai anniversary coming up on December 6th, I have to remind myself that I have fibromyalgia!
Now when I have a flare it is at a pain level of 2-3. Flares are less frequent now :)
