The Louisville, Kentucky Fibromyalgia Recovery Group will be sponsoring an afternoon seminar Saturday, May 14, 2005 as a Fibromyalgia Awareness Day event.
Fibromyalgia Awareness Day, held in May of each year, is a widely celebrated, high- profile media event observed by the millions of Americans with fibromyalgia and other chronic pain illnesses. Since its inception in 1997, the National Fibromyalgia Association has led Awareness Day activities nationwide in an effort to increase awareness of fibromyalgia and other chronic pain illnesses.
The featured speaker is Claudia Marek who is the internationally known author of several books on a leading edge Fibromyalgia (FMS) treatment. Ms. Marek is the medical assistant to Dr. R. Paul St. Amand, M.D. He is an Assistant Professor of Endocrinology at Harbor UCLA Marina del Rey, California. Dr. St. Amand has successfully treated thousands of Fibromyalgia sufferers for over 40 years. His work is based on his understanding that the kidneys of FMS sufferers retain phosphate causing it to be stored in muscle tissue often resulting in debilitating pain. Ms. Marek has worked with Dr. St. Amand for over fifteen years. She is a dynamic and entertaining speaker whose message is one of hope and recovery for those who suffer with this life altering, poorly understood condition. Ms. Marek will give an overview of the guaifenesin treatment approach as well as provide information on getting started. Participants leave her seminars with hope for recovery often for the first time in their lives.
This seminar is open to anyone interested in the treatment of Fibromyalgia. It will be held at the University of Louisville, Business School Auditorium, S. 3rd St. and Cardinal Blvd., Louisville, KY Saturday, May 14 from 1:30 to 5 PM.
