Top Gifts for People with Fibromyalgia

Gifts for Fibromyalgia  Top Gifts for People with Fibromyalgia Dollarphotoclub 95051120Widespread body pain, sensitivities to nearly everything, fatigue and sleep disturbances…these are the common symptoms of fibromyalgia. It can be difficult to determine what would be an appropriate gift. I remember very vividly what it was like to have Fibromyalgia. Sometimes it hurt too badly just to lay down in bed. Here are some great fibromyalgia gifts that will give joy and comfort for years to come! Happy Heartfelt Holidays!

Super-Soft Microfiber Hooded Robe When you are too tired to get dressed and everything hurts this robe is like a gentle hug. The super soft microfibers will not irritate or itch. It keeps you warm without being heavy. Ahh! That’s better.

 Detox Cleanse Kit When New Year’s Day rolls around your recipient is going to be so happy to have this! Get rid of the bloat and fatigue from all of the holidays and start off fresh in the New Year. The Healing Cleanse 30 Day Detox Kit is a fast, simple and easy way to jumpstart healing and make it a great year (Here’s a coupon code for 10% off plus free shipping HOLIDAY17). If you would like even more information, download my free ebook Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 30 Days without Exercising, Starving or Stressing.

Silk Pillow Cases An affordable luxury. Very smooth and naturally cool or warm as you need. They also diminish wrinkles on the face from sleeping and eliminate bed hair.

Warm, Soothing Broth Forget sending the candy and cookies that will cause all kinds of inflammation and pain. Broth is soothing, healing, and the perfect note for cold winter days. Add coconut oil or ghee for good fats, hydrolyzed collagen powder for super-absorbable protein, and unrefined sea salt for flavor. Add this stainless-steel travel mug, it’s my favorite for on-the-go!

Wool Blanket (to go under the bottom bed sheet) Forget a scratchy wool blanket like your grandmother had! These blankets are very soft, but they go UNDER your bottom bed sheet. I used to have a heated mattress pad or an electric blanket, but I became concerned about potential exposure to harmful EMFs. With a wool blanket under my bottom sheet, there is no electricity to worry about and the bed stays warm, cozy and breathable.

BONUS IDEA: I would be shot by my publisher if I did not mention my book, which takes people on a step-by-step path for complete recovery from fibromyalgia and its coexisting conditions. I have been recovered from fibromyalgia for nearly 10 years now, and I am on a mission to help others do the same. Freedom from Fibromyalgia: 7 Steps to Complete Recovery is available on Amazon or on my website www.TheFibroLady.com.

You’re Not Going to Believe the Summer I Had

I was blind-sided by summer this year!

This year’s circumstances came as quite a surprise.  As a result of my recovery from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, depression, etc., I became pregnant with my miracle baby.  Now my “baby” is a seven-year-old little boy made of snakes and snails and puppy dog tails.

Unlike during the school year, my little boy woke up every day around 6 am ready to go-go-go!  He went all day straight until bedtime.  And he seemed to need my constant attention.  I never knew If I had fibromyalgia I wouldn't be learning Karate this Summer!  summer You’re Not Going to Believe the Summer I Had Karate with my sonJumping with my Son this summer summer You’re Not Going to Believe the Summer I Had Jumping with my Sonsomeone else could get so bored that it was painful to me.  (Here we are bouncing on the new trampoline!)  In all honesty, we had a difficult time finding our groove during the first half of summer.

I decided to “give up” on getting much done, and I focused on enjoying the time with my son.  Even though I had cut way back on work, I was able to help my private coaching clients have major breakthroughs with their health.  (See the invitation below for a FREE initial consultation.)

We went on vacation to northern Ohio to The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, swam in Lake Erie and toured Put-In-Bay.  We got a season pass to a local amusement park and rode roller coasters every week.  We also continued our martial arts training (I feel like such a bad-ass now!).  All in all, we ended up having a marvelous summer!

If you would like to take your life back from the pain, fatigue and brain fog, why not join me for a FREE consultation?

During this special session we’ll work together to:

  • Create a crystal clear vision for the ideal life you’d be living with vibrant and vivacious health
  • We’ll uncover hidden challenges that may be sabotaging your efforts and keeping you sickRoller Coasters with my Son this Summer!  summer You’re Not Going to Believe the Summer I Had Roller Coasters with my Son

Happy Holidays from The Fibro Lady Team

Happy Holidays from The Fibro Lady Team

Happy Holidays happy holidays Happy Holidays from The Fibro Lady Team Screen Shot 2015 12 09 at 7This is me, my team, and my little elf at the Team Party we had at my home last weekend.  To show them my appreciation for all of their hard work I made them a gourmet meal of Beef Burgundy and Apple Crisp for dessert.  I also made my Party Ranch Dip for veggies and chips and I have included the easy recipe in this newsletter.  (The other recipes will be posted in upcoming newsletters.)

The Fibro Lady is not just me, Leah, but it is a group of dedicated individuals working as a team to help end the suffering of fibromyalgia and its coexisting conditions.

Some people think I sit at my kitchen table and write blog posts (and sometimes I do!).  I am a Natural Healing Expert, but I am not an expert in accounting, or digital marketing and all of the other specialties needed to get this message out into the world to the people who need it most.  Without their expertise I would not be able to help as many people as I have.

So I want to thank my team from the bottom of my heart for all the wonderful work they do.  I also want to thank my family (especially my husband, Carl) for being so supportive, and I want to thank you, the readers, for all of the wonderful feedback you have given me.  I truly hope each and every one of you have a healthy and blessed holiday season.

Yours in Joyful Health,

Leah

6 Tips for Going Out this Holiday Season

 

Going Out This Holiday Season? Make the Most of Holiday Parties…

Leah after Fibromyalgia holiday parties 6 Tips for Going Out this Holiday Season Leah after Fibromyalgia
I admit, I am truly blessed.  I have recovered my health to a degree most people never dream of.  I am now healthier and more vivacious than most “normal” people. Now that I am back among the living, I really want to make up for lost time, I really want to make the most out of my opportunities.

For my 20th high school reunion, I could not attend because I was basically bed-ridden and being over 100 pounds overweight, I was embarrassed about how I looked.  When I was invited to my 30th year high school reunion I was super-excited.  I went all-out: I got a nice dress, and fixed my hair and makeup special.  

At the event I made sure I talked to everyone, took plenty of pictures, and had a spectacular time.  What’s interesting is a lot of folks there did not even know my story, they were just blown away by how healthy I looked.  

I am sharing this accomplishment with you to let you know that anything is possible, even recovering from an “incurable” illness.  

I also hope that you take care of yourself this holiday season. Here are some excellent ideas for getting the most our of holiday parties:

    • Choose to only go to holiday parties and events that bring you joy.
    • Make sure you get plenty of rest on the day of the event.
    • Delegate as much cooking and cleaning as you can if your event is at your house (I really simplified my home so that I could clean it myself in about 30 minutes, thanks to the help of The Mess Mender, Polly Giblin.*)
    • If they are only going to have low-quality, processed food, bring your own or eat before you go.  No one will probably even notice.
    • Careful with all the sweet goodies and alcohol, they can cause flare ups of symptoms.
    • Lastly, remember, you don’t have to attend every “drama” you are invited to.  

What are your tips for surviving and even thriving during the holiday season?  Please share them on the Facebook page

(*Polly Giblin, The Mess Mender, will be one of our speakers in our upcoming FREE event The Healing Fibromyalgia – Chronic Fatigue – ME World Tele-Summit.  Click here  to register to learn more about it!)

This holiday season I wish you all the joy in the world!
