    I would like to give guai a try. How much does one usually take, 300mg/2x day ? Or how do I find out the right amount for me? Is there anything besides mouthwash and deo that I have to be careful with, any drug interactions?
    Thank you, Kathrin.

    dosage is different for different people. There are a whole list of things you need to avoid - certain make-ups etc. The book by Dr. St. Amand explains the whole protocol and there is also a list of items you can use - if not in the book, then on the quai web site. Good luck! IT changed my daughter's life around - before guai, she had none! Now she is getting ready to head off to college next month, something I was not sure she would ever be able to do. Thanks goodness she never lost sight of the dream, even at her worst, and maintained good grades and a positive attitude. She taught me a lot!

    One is almost guaranteed to fail on the Guai treatment unless the protocol is completely understood, all sals eliminated, and one learns how to tweak the dosage.

    Please buy "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About FIBROMYALGIA," by Dr. Paul St. Amand. Read it through and come back with any questions you may have.

    The Guai is a long term treatment which requires commitment, but it is the only treatment which offers the possibility of reversing the symptoms of FMS.

    It has allowed me to get off Morphine for pain and almost immediately got rid of my Fibro Fog. Good luck to you.

    Love, Mikie

    Yes, I`m going to buy the book, I was on the website yesterday already. I`m not diagnosed with FM but with Lyme,
    plus a few coinfections and have been on antibiotics for years (talk about commitment...). But there are 1 or 2 symptoms that are so typically FM that I want to try Guai.
    Who knows where Lyme stops and FM begins and the other way around anyway. Kathrin

    Many with other problems go on to get FMS. Claudia has told me that one can take the Guai to prevent the symptoms of FMS. The Guai has very few side effects other than some blood thinning properties. It does help with mucus thinning too.

    Good luck.

    Love, Mikie

    do you think after reading the book I could do the protokoll by myself? I`m seeing a Lyme specialist and don`t have much money left to start seeing a FM specialist in addition to that. Kathrin
