Five Books to Fight Fibromyalgia


Smita Sahay

Posted by Smita Sahay

Sharing a list of books that have helped me and other fibromyalgia and chronic pain survivors. I shall be sharing reviews of these books, and my own experience of working with them as separate stories. I shall also be adding new lists.

In the meantime I have linked each book to its Goodreads page and urge you to take a good look at readers’ response to these books.

Book List #1

Healing Back Pain by John Sarno

You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay

Molecules of Emotion by Candace Pert

Dynamic Laws of Healing by Catherine Ponder

Freedom from Fibromyalgia by Nancy Selfridge

The right books will provide knowledge, courage and companionship on your fibromyalgia journey

How to Work With Books in List #1:

Sequence: Work with books in a sequential order. Working with multiple books simultaneously has not proved effective for me.

Suitability: You are unique and so is your set of fibromyalgia symptoms. Working with certain books will prove more effective for you than with others. Look long and hard at their Goodreads and Amazon review and try to match your symptoms with the ones a particular book claims to help with.

Judgement: Try and answer for yourself: Do you believe in(i) the mind-body connection, or (ii) solid scientific facts explaining the physiology of fibromyalgia, or (iii) a book with worksheets and a clear path. Now examine each book’s Goodreads and Amazon reviews carefully to find the ones most in line with your belief system. Start there.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.

occasional sadness, a sense of purpose,

playfulness, and psychological flexibility,

as well autonomy, mastery, and belonging.

Without watching the watch -Our body clock / Circadian Rhythm शरीर की घड़ी / सर्कैडियन लय (Noble Prize 2017)

हमारा “शरीर घड़ी” / सर्कैडियन लय हमारे  सोने, उठने, भूख लगने  और कई शारीरिक प्रक्रियाओं को बिना घङी देखे हमारे शरीर को बताता  रहता है। यह आंतरिक शरीर घड़ी पर्यावरण के संकेतों  जैसे धूप और तापमान जैसी बातों से प्रभावित हो सकता है। शोधों   से इसके  शरीर पर प्रतिकूल  प्रभावों की खोज हो रही है  जैसे हृदय संबंधी परेशानियाँ, मोटापे की संभावना, अवसाद और बाइपोलार ङिसअौङर   अादि।

फिजियोलॉजी या मेडिसिन में 2017 नोबेल पुरस्कार  अमेरिकी वैज्ञानिक जेफरी सी हॉल, माइकल रोजबाश और माइकल डब्ल्यू यंग  को “सर्कैडियन लय को नियंत्रित करने वाले आणविक तंत्र की उनकी खोज” के लिए दिया गया हैं। जो फ्लाइट जेट लैग की व्याख्या करती है।

Our “body clock” /  circadian rhythm is a cycle that tells our bodies when to sleep, rise, eat–regulating many physiological processes without watching  the watch. This internal body clock may be  affected by environmental cues, like  sunlight and temperature. When one’s circadian rhythm is disrupted, sleeping and eating patterns can be disturbed. No of researches are  examining the adverse health effects such as –  chances of cardiovascular problems, obesity, and a correlation with neurological problems like depression and bipolar disorder etc.

American scientists Jeffrey C Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W Young have won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for “their discoveries of molecular mechanisms controlling the circadian rhythm”.
