With over 10 million people in the US alone having a fibromyalgia diagnosis, we are dealing with a huge epidemic…and a huge cash cow for pharmaceutical companies (aka Big Pharma). If you are struggling with fibromyalgia &/or CFS, this is what Big Pharma doesn’t want you to know (but I am going to share with you).
Ps. This might change your life…
You Know the Drill…
I know the drill all too well, as I am sure you do, too.
It goes something like this…
You have been sent from pillar to post with doctors and getting tests done -all of which come up as ‘negative’ or ‘normal’.
The average time to get a diagnosis is 5 years for fibromyalgia…By this time, you are pretty much ready to give up all hope.
You feel like sh*t. You *know* you aren’t well and something is definitely not ‘right’…and then you finally get a diagnosis of fibromyalgia or CFS (or both).
I see it daily on our Facebook page.
Finally – An Answer (or Is It?)
Finally. Your doctor confirms this isn’t all in your head, and at last, you feel vindicated in your fight to get heard (and help).
Finally you have an answer to tell people that you aren’t ‘just lazy’, you are ill. (ps. I am certainly not stating that you aren’t ill…very far from it…).
And as part of that diagnosis, you are so very kindly told by your doctor/consultant,
‘By the way, there is no cure. There are a few medications approved for fibromyalgia. Chances are you will never get better and will be on medication for the rest of your life’.
(Or something like that – you get the drift).
And of course, you believe this. Why wouldn’t you? Your doctor is an authority, aren’t they? After all, fibromyalgia and CFS are real! (Or at least all the symptoms you are experiencing are…).
Then you get that fateful prescription for something like Lyrica (pregabalin) or Neurontin (gabapentin) – which, btw, is proving to be a ‘death sentence for new brain synpapses‘, and some pain killers and you are beyond grateful that finally, finally you are going to get some much-needed relief, and help.
Meanwhile…Does This Sound Familiar?
The medications that you are given may initially help with some symptoms, but wait a second…
All of a sudden you need more prescription medication – for all the side effects the first batch may be causing…which in many cases are side effects your doctor will pass off as ‘part and parcel with fibromyalgia or CFS’.
Side effects like:
- Insomnia and sleep issues (from opiates)
- Depression and anxiety (from opiates, and even anti-depressants themselves, gabapentin & pregabalin (to name a few – not to mention from not having a good sleep)
- Constipation (from opiates)
- Seizures and blackouts (from Tramadol/Ultram)
And you accept that this is, ‘just the way it is’.
Fast forward a few months (or years) and you might find yourself on a plethora of pills, (I was on a whopping forty pills myself A DAY), but not actually feeling any better.
In fact, there is a good chance you are feeling even worse due to all the side effects (but you think (and are told), that it is ‘your fibromyalgia or CFS’…).
Something You Need to Know
Your conventional medicine doctor is basically being trained these days by Big Pharma.
In fact Big Pharma has been caught out (on many occasions), making up diseases! Check out this article regarding the 8 Diseases Big Pharma is Banking On.
It is actually rather shocking, Big Pharma are bribing thousands of doctors to prescribe dangerous painkillers. The corruption is incredible! And most importantly it is your life that is literally at stake!
Question – do you actually know what medications are working for you? Causing you side effects? Or do you just take them blindly, with the hope that they are ‘doing something?’. (I know I sure did…).
Big Pharma does not create cures – they create CUSTOMERS.
Ohhhh the Corruption of it All…
Earlier this year when the New York Times published a pair of stories tracking Harvard’s Big Pharma industry ties, the results that came out were shocking.
It was found that of 8,900 professors and lecturers, 1,600 admitted (question -what about the ones who didn’t admit…), that either they or a family member have had some kind of business link to drug companies — sometimes worth hundreds of thousands of dollars — that could bias their teaching or research.
Speaking of Research…
Almost 75% of clinical trials are paid for privately…(you can guess who is the biggest funders…).
Question – if you’re a researcher and your mortgage and the food on your table is being paid by Big Pharma to carry out a research study, do you think that the study may possible be, erm…slanted in the pharmaceutical company’s favour?
The six golden rules for pharmaceutical companies
- Never cure the ailment! A cured/healthy patient is a lost revenue stream!
- Have side-effects that lead to the sales of your other products. Best if there are a wide variety of side-effects that only occur after a long period, otherwise it is tricky to deny liability.
- Have monopoly pricing. This is achieved with a secure patent, being available only under pharma company and doctor control, and not having competition from other companies, traditional remedies or pesky natural products. With monopoly pricing, you can extract every dollar each patient is capable of paying.
- Rapidly relieve the symptoms of an ailment immediately after taking a pill. Relief continues for only a limited time until the next dose is due.
- Lock in the customer. Keep the patient as a customer for the remainder of his or her life. The best drugs are difficult to discontinue and addictive.
- Hide, discredit or outlaw every possible alternative to your drug.
Your illness is their profit.
End of story.
Think about it for a moment and I am sure you will agree, other than prescribing medication for you or sending you to physio, prescriptions are all they have in their arsenal for giving you relief.
If you concur with all of this, and if you have had enough, and you want some answers and you want help…please read on.
I Had Had Enough
I decided that no longer was I going to be a part of Big Pharma’s dirty income stream.
This was me a year ago:
- 40 pills a day – from opiates to anti-seizure pills, pills for nausea, itching, depression, anxiety and and and…
- Seizures and blackouts – I couldn’t go out to a movie or anywhere that caused overstimulation
- Weighing almost 300lbs – no diet or lap band would work
- Insomnia- I hadn’t slept properly for almost 9 years
- Brain fog – to the point I thought I had early onset Alzheimer’s
- Aching and pains everywhere
At the end of the day, I felt my life was over. And perhaps you are feeling the same way, too, sadly.
The Day My Life Changed
As some of you reading my blogs and are on my Facebook page know, I research. I want answers. And I refused to give up, even though I was feeling like hell.
I felt that I was onto something when I came across black mold toxicity and wrote my blog about it. Then I came across the world of pathogens, (viruses, bacteria, fungus and parasites), and my eyes opened even further.
I had testing done for pathogens, and yep – we stopped counting at 60, from Epstein Barr to cytomegalo viruses, several different types of candida – the list was endless.
No wonder I was feeling like sh*t! I did have some energy work done regarding clearing these, but still felt that there was something missing.
Missing Something HUGE
I then came across the symptoms for toxic overload. Holy smokes!
These symptoms pretty much were exactly that of fibromyalgia and CFS.
Ding ding ding!
And the more digging I did…the more my jaw dropped…
We Are Born Toxic & Exposed to 80,000 Unregulated Toxic Chemicals a Day
According to an Environmental Working Group (EWG) study done in 2005, a shocking 287 toxic pollutants were found in the umbilical cord blood of newborn babies – in other words, we are born toxic. And ps. this study was done before BPA in plastics came onto their radar.
Of the 287 chemicals we detected in umbilical cord blood, we know that 180 cause cancer in humans or animals, 217 are toxic to the brain and nervous system, and 208 cause birth defects or abnormal development in animal tests. EWG
We are exposed to 80,000 unregulated toxic chemicals and pollutants in our daily lives.
Of the more than 80,000 chemicals currently used in the United States, most haven’t been adequately tested for their effects on human health. NRDC
These chemicals lurk in everyday items: furniture, cosmetics, household cleaners, toys, even food.
Big Pharma Doesn’t Want You to Know This!
Because toxic overload is causing hundreds of health symptoms (that are worth billions of dollars), just like the ones you are experiencing with your fibromyalgia and CFS diagnosis.
Just a Few Symptoms of Toxic Overload
- Brain fog
- Weight Issues (struggle to lose or gain)
- Digestive Problems
- Sleep Issues
- Skin Issues (Eczema, Psoriasis, Acne)
- Mood Issues including Depression, Anxiety and Mood Swings
- Fibromyalgia and/or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
- Aches and pains

Imagine. Finding out that one of the main root causes (toxic overload) of fibromyalgia and CFS is something that you can treat, reduce or eliminate your symptoms and go on to prevent? (Because you can…).
Examples of Where Toxins Come From
- Parasites -(there is a connection to Lyme Disease and fibromyalgia/CFS) and the Center for Disease Control states millions of us are infected, there is also a connection to Leaky Gut Syndrome as the parasites eat holes in your gut
- Heavy metals – from aluminum saucepans, foil, tin cans… to your water supply (ps there is also a connection to Alzheimer’s )
- Fungus – candida – many of us are dealing with candida overgrowth with fibromyalgia and CFS
- Toxic Food– from glyphosate sprayed on your fruit, veg and wheat to the thousands of artificial chemicals in your food as well as antibiotics and growth hormones in your dairy and meat
- Cleaning Supplies – bleach to oven cleaner (that goes nuclear when you heat up your oven, infusing your food with toxic chemicals)
- Body Care Products – It is estimated that the average woman is subjected to a whopping 515 toxic chemicals A DAY in her body care products alone…
- Bacteria and Viruses – existing at low lying levels in our bodies for years
As you can see…toxins and toxicity are everywhere.
And as you can hopefully also see, does the above start to make sense regarding fibromyalgia and CFS (and Big Pharma)?
Ready to Get Off the Big Pharma Merry-Go-Round?
If you have had enough of not feeling any better and fully believe that there is something more going on with your health, like I did, please…look into toxic overload syndrome.
Do your research.
Look into detoxing -both your body and your home. (Yes, there are a lot of scams on the market – be aware of them! They can be useless, laxatives that can also be very expensive).
Know that no matter how much organic spinach you choose to chomp on, the gluten and sugar you have eradicated from your diet and that you have decided to go paraben and SLS-free with your body care products (a good start), the damage has already been done in your body.
You can get a free 5 Day Detox Your Life Course here.
For me, I chose a detox that not only was a gentle liver and colon cleanse, but had the incredibly powerful ganoderma and chaga mushrooms in it – with over 300 studies done on just these 2 ingredients alone, this particular detox (which I take daily btw and eat normally…), has been life-changing.
You can read my honest review about how detox turned my life around here.
Please know that I am not suggesting you stop your medications (and if you do wish to do so, please discuss this with your doctor to do so safely).
And although a year ago I would be mocking this exact statement, but honestly, you can do a lot regarding helping to heal yourself. Honestly.
If you are struggling with fibromyalgia and/or CFS, know that Big Pharma doesn’t want you to know about toxicity and toxic overload syndrome. Are you ready to take a stand for your health (and your family’s health, too?) and take back control of your life?
