Book Overview

Fibromyalgia is a common and chronic medical disorder characterized by widespread pain and often coupled with other symptoms such as fatigue, disturbed sleep, chronic headaches, and other ailments. Recent research shows that the disorder is directly related to decreased levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine.

The solution, renowned rheumatologist Dr. David Dryland argues, is to regulate levels of dopamine in the body through an "off-label...

A Lifesaver

I was in a dark place before I read this book. Dr Dryland gave me the first hope I'd had in years. After following his simple, common sense program; I am on the mend.

Get this book!

This book has been the best investment of both time and money for fighting my fibro. Some reviews have rated this poorly due to the meds mentioned in the book...don't let that fool you. The author does mention what he feels are the best medications to take for symptoms, but by no means dose he imply that is the only way to find relief! The authors approach to fibro and the connection to the fight or flight response has opened my eyes to my symptoms and has me going in a positive direction in regaining my life as I once knew it. If you are at all interested in regaining control of your fibro and getting back to some sense of normal this book is a must!

The Fibromyalgia Solution

Have only had enough time to flip through this book ,but looks very interesting, and came in good shape and in a very short time.

Restoring Dopamine has Restored My Life

The key point to Dr. Dryland's work with Fibromyalgia is that dopamine is depleted. This is due to a chronic, abnormally functioning stress response. In Dr. Dryland's personal case he was able to restore his dopamine level without medication and his symptoms of Fibromyalgia subsided. Patients can use his skillful method to alter their stress response with or without medication. From the very beginning Dr. Dryland has pointed out that Mirapex and Requip are used to accelerate the process and are the best medicines that he can offer at this time. He points out that new and better medication that raise dopamine may become available in the future. I have dealt with some side affects from Mirapex for almost three years. Yet for me the choice is crystal clear. Without Mirapex, the constant stinging pain down my arms and spine from stress hormones every minute of the day makes a miserable existence. Every little stress becomes a Tsunami-like event. I rely on Mirapex, the stress reduction techniques found in this book and a self administered herb called Mucuna to stabilize my condition. Restoring dopamine means that I can have a more normal life. My senses tolerate a wider range of sensations. All pain - fibro and non-fibro - has substantially reduced. Best of all I am far calmer in the face of most daily stress. After a lifetime of an over-active stress response and more than 20 years of fibro - Restoring Dopamine has Restored My Life. J.

Excellent book!

I just finished reading this book and must say it is one of the best I have read. Dr. Dryland's approach from the aspect that fibromyalgia comes from depletion of dopamine due to an overactive fight or flight response is very interesting. While I am not willing to try the two meds he talks about in the book for raising dopamine levels, I am very interested in using natural methods to lower the fight or flight response. He even has a website for this method. He is supposed to be coming out with a new book soon on the fight or flight response and I will be watching for it. He has cured his own fibromyalgia and restored many of his patients. It is an intriguing book even if you don't totally agree with every little thing. I highly recommend it to anyone who suffers from fibromyalgia. sue in ohio
