  1. Hello- My wife shared an article of yours from the ‘ProHealth’ website re. ‘Fibromyalgia Misdiagnosis’. She was diagnosed by a Rheumatologist in 1994 after suffering for some years with undefined multiple symptoms. The reason I am making this comment on your blog is because she has had some relief from the chronic pain and other diverse symptoms using ‘Rhodiola Rosea’ as well as an array of other nutritional supplements.

    In the 1st chapter of this book, the husband and wife doctors relate how she had Lyme Disease that severely disabled her and compromised her life as a doctor, wife, and mother. She got her life back using ‘Rhodiola’. https://www.amazon.com/Rhodiola-Revolution-Transform-Breakthrough-Century/dp/159486294X/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1492884239&sr=8-2&keywords=Rhodiola+in+books

    Best wishes…
