Well, after reading Dr. St. Amand's main book, "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia", I began to think that my little girl may have my disease. I already knew the protocol was working on me, so I was open to this idea since I knew I could make her well if I was right. There are no side effects and it is safe, so what did I have to lose? If I tried it and she got better, I'd have my answer.. she has Fibromyalgia. Well yes, she DID have Fibromyalgia. After 2 weeks she woke up singing! She never asked to watch TV, she wanted to ride her bike, go swimming, play NICELY with her brother, and was SO affectionate and HAPPY!
I'm not saying she is cured. She has to keep up with the protocol. But she does not have ONE symptom of Fibromyalgia and it's been 19 months since she recovered. I might add that after 22 months on the protocol, I too am symptom-free!!
The protocol as outlined in this pediatric book is not 100% up-to-date. Dr. St. Amand listens to his patients and learns from them. He is always tweaking the protocol to give his patients the highest chance of success and recovery.Read more ›

Thank you Diana, for this video, it touched so close to home. My daughter didn't complain of pain, in so many words, but she did whine and cry a lot, and was very irritable. She also got a lot of respiratory infections (colds), and had been getting strange rashes on her body, and little tiny blister-like pimples around her nose and mouth. She had trouble falling, or staying asleep, was miserable in the mornings, and was inattentive. Many children have been misdiagnosed with having Attention Deficit Disorder, when in fact, ADD can be a symptom of Fibromyalgia. I know, because that was my latest symptom before I began the protocol, and was my first symptom to disappear after only 2 months into my recovery. We use the term FibroFog. Our short term memory is shot. We walk into a room and forget why we're there (50-60 times a day!), if something interrupts our sentence, we forget the whole topic of conversation. Forget about school! There's no way these kids can focus when they have this symptom. Listen to a teacher talk? Are you kidding? I recall my teachers growing up had always written on my report cards that I was a day-dreamer. Oh yes, I had this as a child too - I am learning. But it can be subtle! Often only a Fibromyalgic parent will even suspect this in their child, and usually not until they learn more about their own illness, and how genetics play such a huge role. It is my understanding that children who have a first line relative with Fibromyalgia / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome increase their odds of getting Fibromyalgia by 8.5 times! I have been in contact with hundreds of people with FMS, and most of them have at least one or two children with the same illness. But these people and their children are on the Guaifenesin Protocol, which you will learn about from Dr. St. Amand, and they are getting better. I have also learned from Dr. Melissa Congdon, that she and Dr. St. Amand know that 100% of Fibromyalgia patients end up with Osteoarthritis, if left untreated (unreversed). The ONLY way to reverse Fibromyalgia today, is with the Guaifenesin protocol. Olivia is free and clear of symptoms because of this protocol outlined in this book. I highly recommend this book if you have a child whom you are suspicious of having FMS. If you already know, I recommend the latest edition of the main book, released in May 2012 with the red stripe on top. "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia". It may take adults months or years to completely reverse their Fibromyalgia, but it works when the protocol is followed, and many see results within only weeks. Children, the younger they are, the faster they reverse. My daughter was a different child after 2 weeks on the protocol, and void of all symptoms after 6 weeks. She used to be "a challenge" to say the least. She is now such a happy little girl. Thriving in school and sports, and full of boundless energy! She is almost 4 and a half now, and she says her arms and legs don't feel squished anymore."
This treatment is completely safe for children, and the medication can be purchased over the counter. There is no patent on Guaifenesin. Anyone can make it, therefore it is cheap. There is no money to be made from this protocol. There is no funding for a study to prove this works in a double-blind study. Investors would never receive a return on their investment. Drug companies are pushing their latest and anti-depressants and narcotics to our doctors, when in fact all they do is make us worse. Dr. St. Amand is a very humble man. At 85 years old, having FMS himself, as do his 3 children and one grandchild, it is no wonder what drives him to perfect this treatment protocol. He continues to treat patients and help fund research to prove what he has already proven in his patients over the past decade or more. Be aware, you cannot go out and buy Guaifenesin anywhere. It must be pure, virgin, dye-free, long-acting Guaifenesin with no decongestants or other medications added.
