Fibromyalgia is a debilitating, chronic illness. It steals the joy from your life and prevents you from caring for your family and home the way you’d like. Heck, chronic fibromyalgia even make it a total struggle to make it to and through work. I know some people who’ve ended up leaving their job and wish there was a way to reverse fibromyalgia.
If you’ve wondered how to beat fibromyalgia, you’re not alone. Over 5 million Americans suffer with you daily of which 80% to 90% are women. Talk about a woman’s issue, right?
One of the biggest misconceptions about finally getting a fibromyalgia diagnosis happen to cause a lot of confusion which I intend to unpack for you today. First of all, fibromyalgia isn’t an autoimmune disease. Before you writing me arguing that I’m wrong on this, listen to today’s interview.
Secondly, doctors don’t often follow the correct fibromyalgia diagnostic criteria that allows them to officially (and correctly) confirm that you even have it. And this is key because there are other illnesses that are often confused for fibromyalgia. By failing to correctly nail the diagnosis, you’re likely to go on and on for years wondering why you (and your doctors) have been unable to that reverse fibromyalgia diagnosis.
And yes, all these questions and points will be covered today by my guest Dr. David Brady. His years of work as a physician working with chronic fibromyalgia (as well as those who suspect they have it) provide an incredible insight into what you need to know in order to start feeling more like your old self again.

How to Reverse Fibromyalgia with Dr. David Brady
It was a special treat to sit down with David Brady, ND today to discussing his unique and effective way to reverse fibromyalgia. Not only is Dr. Brady a super nice, down-to-earth physician, but he also happens to be in charge of my Master’s program in functional nutrition.
So yes, I was a bit star-struck. 🙂
But that didn’t hold me back from having a conversation that will hopefully inform, but also surprise you at times.
A lot of what is conventionally thought or said about chronic fibromyalgia is based on ideas that don’t hold water. An example of this would include the claim that it’s an autoimmune disease (when it’s not).
He also shares why every fibromyalgia patient should have a full thyroid workup — especially if you don’t have a diagnosis yet. For more information on thyroid information, I did a fantastic interview last podcast all about it.
The point that I was left with after reviewing Dr. Brady’s book (FibroFix — which I highly recommend!) and his interview is this…
If you get the diagnosis wrong, then you’re pretty much left feeling like you’ll never reverse fibromyalgia. Only then will you resolve the symptoms by effectively dealing with the root causes in the first place.
In this episode…
– Why fibromyalgia is so often misdiagnosed
– Is fibromyalgia an autoimmune disease?
– What needs to happen in order to get an accurate diagnosis for fibromyalgia that’s often overlooked
– What very common condition could look and feel like fibromyalgia, but isn’t it at all (and drastically varies in how you’d treat it)
– Testing important to get an accurate diagnosis (so you know what to treat) in order to reverse fibromyalgia symptoms
– and much more…
