A graduate of Tufts University School of Medicine, Dr. Liptan developed fibromyalgia as a medical student. One of the few clinical specialists to focus solely on fibromyalgia, she fine-tuned alternative and conventional medical treatments after treating thousands of patients and coping with her own symptoms. Dr. Liptan directs the Frida Center for Fibromyalgia in Portland, Oregon. Learn more about Dr. Liptan here.
What makes The FibroManual unique?
It’s designed for you and for your doctor, incorporating proven science into the chapters to answer questions like: Why is magnesium important? What combinations of supplements and medications work? What is the latest research on experimental options like medical marijuana? And many more.
“If you suffer from fibromyalgia and are struggling to get help from your doctor, you’re far from alone. Ten million Americans experience the widespread muscle pain, profound fatigue, and fuzzy brain (“fibrofog”) that have long frustrated both patients and doctors. In this unique resource, Ginevra Liptan, M.D., shares a cutting-edge new approach that goes far beyond mainstream medical knowledge to produce dramatic symptom improvement.
Since many health care providers have limited fibromyalgia expertise, The FibroManual includes a thoroughly sourced “health care provider guide” that enables readers to help their doctors help them. Alleviate fibromyalgia symptoms in four simple steps (Rest, Repair, Rebalance, and Reduce) and you will:
- Restore deep, restful sleep
- Achieve long-lasting pain relief
- Optimize hormone and energy balance
- Reduce fatigue
This accessible and empowering resource provides essential information about understanding and treating fibromyalgia from a physician who, as both patient and provider, understands the illness from the inside (The FibroManual, 2016).” To learn more or purchase The FibroManual, please click here.
