According to the National Fibromyalgia Association, fibromyalgia is one of the most common chronic pain conditions.
The disorder affects an estimated 10 million people in the U.S. and an estimated 3-6 percent of the world population. While it is most prevalent in women (75-90 percent of the people who have fibromyalgia are women), it also occurs in men and children of all ethnic groups.
According to long-standing research and his personal work with treating chronic pain, Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum says fibromyalgia can be addressed effectively by optimizing the hormones in the body; particularly the "sex" hormones of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. By doing this, you restore the body's energy production capabilities.
Dr. Teitelbaum warns that physicians should treat individuals uniquely, based on symptoms -- not necessarily on what blood work shows hormone levels to be.
Listen in as Dr. Teitelbaum joins Dr. Bond to share more about this approach to treating fibromyalgia, as well as his S.H.I.N.E. protocol.
