FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a condition of the body where one feels unexplained pain and/or unrefreshed fatigue. Doctors are hesitant about diagnosing for fibromyalgia, and will often test patients for many other health issues first before coming to a conclusion of fibromyalgia. Doctors who are aware of the protocol will also find lesions throughout the body, especially on thighs, and be able to diagnose patients accordingly. The lesions are caused by phosphate desposits from cells that the kidneys are unable to excrete from the body normally. These lesions cause stress on different parts of the body creating many symptoms, even irritable bowel syndrome, depression, and urinary tract infections. The protocol helps to relieve these symptoms by enabling the kidneys to clear out the excess phosphates, and get the body to function back to normal conditions.
How long will it take to feel better after I start the Protocol?
Each person has her own journey in recovery. The rule of thumb we go by is that for each year you have had fibromyalgia, it takes about 4 months to clear. This is just an average, as some patients do tend to take longer, especially when finding the right most effective dose amount. Once your dosage is found, you will begin to see more good days arrive, in between your bad days. Other factors affecting your clearing would be exposure to salicylates, especially in products with recent ingredient changes, whether or not you need to follow the hypoglycemic diet, and blue dye in the guaifenesin
How bad will I feel after starting the Protocol?
Again, this is different for each person, but generally, the more symptoms you have, the more ill you will initially feel. The good news is that once you have started the clearing process, the symptoms gradually become less and less, and you will feel better. Some patients get relief within a week, while others it takes months.
I found a less expensive brand of Guaifenesin. Can I take it?
Guaifenesin comes in many forms, with dyes, extended release or immediate release, and it is becoming more challenging to find the right kind. The best that works really well are extended release without blue dye and/or sugar and starches. The cheap brands are usually immediate release and contain the blue dye, which we have found in some patients to make clearing more difficult. Also, extended release works the best as opposed to immediate release, as the compound distributes more evenly over the 12 hour period helping the kidneys to function most efficiently in removing the excess phosphates
How long will I have to take Guaifenesin?
Guaifenesin helps your kidneys complete a function they cannot do on their own, therefore, you will be using guaifenesin for the rest of your life. Not to worry, as there are no known side effects, except for dehydration, so as a result it is imperative that you make sure to drink plenty of water.
Do I really have to quit drinking tea and using toothpaste?
Yes, absolutely. Any product that has salicylates will block your kidneys' abilities to rid your body of the excess phosphate throughout. Other products high in salicylates are some vitamins and all herbal supplements, any cream, soap or get that contains plant oils and extracts, anything containing mint flavorings such as in gum or drinks. Food in general is okay to touch or eat, as the concentrations of salicylates are not significant enough to block, however, be aware of homemade remedies that contain aloe vera, coconut oil, and other plant based food ingredients that can block when applied to skin and hair.
If a product changes to a "do not use" list online, why can't I still use them?
Many times companies will change the ingredients used in their products to keep up with what is popular and marketable, thus it is important to keep up with the ingredients each time you shop for a product.
