The importance of one's mindset & taking responsibility for one's health
Posted by: pearls
Nov 17, 2013
As someone who has dealt with fibromyalia since early 2001, and who suffered daily, crushing chest pain, I can vouch for the importance of a positive mindset. I can also vouch for the imporantce of taking responsibility for one's own health. This is not to negate the fear, pain, depression and all the rest that accompanies this terrible condition. But over time, I was able to get to the place where I do not have that kind of pain anymore, and am able to live a much more normal life.

This was done by two ways: 1) realizing that I could improve my situation, and 2) learning all I could about the many natural ways of improving one's health. Among these ways was gradually improving my diet so that, while I continue to enjoy foods (I'm actuall a "foodie"), I eat and appreciate a much more natural diet.

My pain specialist, who I continue to see as I am winding down from my medications, considers me to be something of a "poster girl" for fibromyaliga recovery. I used to take about ten meds all at once, including high doses of Oxycontin and Vicodin, but am now down to only my Lyrica, the one drug that made a significant dent on my recovery. I recently went down from 300 MG per day of Lyrica to 200 MG, with plans to lower it further, and even do away with it, if possible, because it is my belief that I will be likely better off without it.

I believe that the meds themselves caused many of my most annoying symptoms, and might have been perpetuating my fibromyalgia, so I am glad to be off of all but the Lyrica.

I did this mostly on my own, but with the advice of my doctor as to the best ways of getting off my meds. It took some fortitude to do this, since most medical doctors have a pharmaceutical orientation. However, they cannot argue with real results. I don't expect to get completely over my fibromyalgia, but I certainly do expect to keep improving within the bounds of my advancing age (69).

I was certainly interested in the discussion of mindset, as I too think its crucial to move out of the victim mindset as soon as reasonably possible. I'm also working hard to understand the effects of diet on my ME/CFS. These were interesting points in the "article.""

As I read on, however, I felt as if I were listening to the video on the New Chapter site. This reeks of conflict of interest and lacks any disclosure about support from New Chapter or anyone else who might be promoting these products.

Don't get me wrong...I take Zyflamend Nighttime, and I love the philosophy behind the New Chapter folks. Lets just keep a clear distinction between unbiased information and sales promotions, huh?

Lauren Schnell, Mindset of healing article
Posted by: scottyojai

I would like to say that it is impossible to "change your mindset" and "think" your way out of a disease so horrible and deadly as fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome. This type of article does far more damage to us sufferers of these illnesses than it helps. This kind of article creates a feeling of guilt in us, because when we fail to heal ourselves through changing our thinking, we drop several notches towards helplessness.
I cannot speak to the effectivness of the herbal products Ms Schnell is pushing, but it is very suspicious when the first five long paragraphs of her article deal with the changing of our "mindset/thinking" idea, then she moves into the elimination of some food groups and then finely into what the article is really about: the sale of a "new" product, a slick packaging of a combination of old herbs.
I buy a lot of products from ProHealth, i trust them, so it is with a heavy heart that i wonder why Pro Health titles this article " A Breakthrough in Treating Fibro/cfs". There is no breakthrough here, just a sales pitch for a "new" product, under the banner of creating a "mindset of healing". ProHealth, you should know better by now.

Not For Lack of Trying
Posted by: Waynesrhythm

I think better care could have been taken in writing this article. There seemed to be several references to the concept that we could all be well, if only we thought we could be well.

Speaking for myself, and I suspect many thousands of other pwCFS, I've believed for many years (decades) that I could get well, but I haven't. Is this because I'm not "thinking right", or am limiting myself, or that I'm just not trying hard enough, or......

I refer to this as Carolyn Myss thinking, and I'm not comfortable with it. It often comes across to me as somewhat condescending. I can also see how somebody with long-term CFS might become introverted from having their lack of success described this way.

I continue to believe I can improve my health and my circumstances, but here's only so many dietary, supplemental, and numerous other health regimins that can be pursued at any given time. Perhaps, because of my own resourcefulness and resilience, I'll find the right combination someday that will turn things around for me. Perhaps not. But it won't be for lack of trying, or believing I can't make substantial improvements.
