    Hello Everyone

    My name is Donna, I am a mom of two girls ages 5 and 22 months.
    I have just been told (Oct. 25/02) that I have Fibromyalgia and I'm only 38 years old. I know that I have had something wrong with me before my second daughter was born but wasn't sure until now.
    It's hard to know what to do know. Have been told to take herbs but was wondering if anyone would recommed which herbs would be the best ones to take? and why.

    Donna, glad you to have you join us. We have quite a few Canadian members here, and they will soon be welcoming you too.

    As for herbs, I mostly take supplements for Fibro, Pro Energy(Malic Acid and Magnesium Glycinate), ZMA (zinc, magnesium, Vitamin B-6), along with Melatonin,Natural vitamin E, Ultra B-Complex, Vitamin C and a drink for a multi vitamin. All of these can be purchased right here at Pro Health, just go to the top right of this page where it says; 'Store' and you can read about all of the supplements for Fibro, get a free catalog too.

    I also take Noni Juice, for IBS, and I drink half my weight in ounces of water per day, along with a fourth teaspoon of Sea Salt.

    There are many herbs that help with Fibro, and others will share their experience with you here soon.

    Glad to have you with us, and hope we hear from you often.

    Shalom, Shirl

    It seems we have alot in common (and I mean ALL of us).
    I too am from Canada - suburb of Montreal, have 2 girls
    age 5 and 10 and am also 38 recently diagnosed although
    I have had the symptoms for 1 1/2 yrs.
    The combo of supplements seems tricky - what works for some
    does not work for all. I am learning a great deal through
    this messageboard - thanks to all!

    Good luck!
