Re: Any luck with Fibro & Fatigue Centers
I just read online about them from clicking on their website...and please be careful...the wording about the cost is that you have to pay the ENTIRE year up front...that's when it says 'about' 500 per month so coming up with 6 grand for most people without insurance is impossible...
I'm not saying their treatments don't work..but I get really nervous and skeptical about places that say they don't accept insurance...why??? and putting all that money up front without knowing if you will be helped or not..that just doesn't sit right with me..
It says they use holistic treatment...which most of us can do for free or low cost on our own as that part of helping our pain/fatigue is crucial..like eating organic, light exercise each day, aqua therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, acupunture, massage, vitamin D, B-12, and magnesium supplements, along with other things that are proven in the medical community..
I know for me...finally getting on Ambien..and getting to stage 4 sleep..has been a total lifesaver for me! I get a perfect 8 hr. night, every night...to bed at 10pm and up at 6am without fail...and now have so much more energy during the day I don't even need caffeine..
I was diagnosed back in '95 by a Dr. who is actually now head of (Fibro treatment) one of the premier hospitals in the country and even back then..he thought that almost 75% of Fibro issues are related to the stage 4 sleep issue as our bodies cannot repair themselves each night..our immune system goes haywire..as well as my emotions are so much better to deal with the pain...
Anyway..sorry to ramble...I just wanted you and others to be aware that places like you mentioned that claim to have you great in 6 months and ' to good to be true' usually are...
