It is estimated that 4-8 million people in the United States sufferwith Fibromyalgia. Another one million also have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.Some statistics state that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgiamay directly affect 5% of the world's population.
I am one of the individuals in this growing epidemic. In 1997, after achaotic year of intense medical and psychological testing, I was diagnosedwith Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. I spent muchof the last ten years in deep denial feeling alone, confused, frustrated, and angry. It has taken me a great deal of soul searching, but I believethat today I am a better, more centered person because of my experiences.
I've never been someone who dictates advice, so my book provides worksheets you can develop to tailor your personal responses to symptoms and crises. It is the good, the bad, and the ugly of my personal journey that I share with you, my fellow Fibromites. My hope is simple, that you will find solace and renewed hope in my words.

 The onset can be fast and shocking or slow and insidious. It can happen to anyone at any age. A flu, a vaccination, or an infection can be the innocent beginnings to the potentially life-long and disabling illness called myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), which is more commonly known as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) or ME/CFS in North America. 


In the mid 1980s, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) was called in by concerned doctors who were witnessing an influx of patients with a mysterious illness. Eventually the CDC labeled the condition “chronic fatigue syndrome” which turned out to be very misleading. Decades later, in 2016, health agencies are finally beginning to agree with international experts that ME/CFS is a serious, chronic, multi-system illness.


Through artwork, poetry, story-telling, and meticulous research, Lighting Up a Hidden World: CFS and ME takes readers into the fascinating, yet frightening, landscape of ME/CFS. Author Valerie Free shares her personal experiences and delivers illuminating first-hand perspectives from patients, caregivers, journalists, and medical professionals from within the global community in short easy-to-read segments. These stories reveal the disgrace, controversy, and tragedy of worldwide neglect by political and health care systems, leaving ME/CFS research underfunded and millions of people marginalized, sick, and socially unsupported.


Lighting Up a Hidden World: CFS and ME advocates for those too ill to speak out, abounds with patient resources, and offers realistic hope for the future. People living with this illness, along with their family and friends, will find compassion and camaraderie in its pages. This book reaches beyond the ME/CFS community exposing the themes of human suffering, resilience, and the need for social change.

NEW -- for the FIRST time (for women) your guide to healing the constant tight chronic pain of fibromyalgia in your back and hips while finding out how to regain your health, regain your body, regain your proper weight, and get relief.

Have you been give the DREADED "F-word" diagnosis (that most women HATE to hear)? Wondering why you? Why the fibromyalgia? Why the pain? Why the insomnia? Why the fatigue? If you seem to have the trials of Job in the Old Testament, and just hate each day, and feel like you can't continue on another then this book is for you. In Real Fibromyalgia Rx, Dr. Purser explains how the pituitary is the root cause for those suffering from fibromyalgia, chronic pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, and even (YES!) interstitial cystitis. Are you wondering how your joints hurt so bad? Why your muscles up between your shoulder blades ache and seem so tense? Why you have sometimes HORRBILE insomnia and yet are exhausted all the time? Wondering why the gut and digestive problems torture you? Why do you suffer from the weird heart palpitations (what other doctor mentions THAT too?)? Why the bladder problems (SEVERE in ICS -- some of you know I'm talking to YOU)? Why the muscle wasting? On and on and on...it never seems to end. For women OR men (yes, they can get all of this too), Dr. Purser, who's done pituitary endocrinology research for a number of years explains (along with the medical literature) HOW you don't have the bad luck of having a bunch of disparate distinct problems but instead you have just one. This is a guide to understanding what the research says about the pituitary, your hormones, menopause, pain, and proper careful hormone replacement therapy. This is a perfect tool to help you find a doctor near you who knows and to take charge of your body and start feeling healthy, happy, and pain-free again! Buy one quick and GET HEALING!!!

Do wonder why you suffer from these? And what follows make sense?

Muscle wasting/No Libido/Fatigue -- could these all be of unknown cause or from low testosterone?Hot Flashes/Night Sweats/Migraines/Osteoporosis -- all from unknown causes or low progesterone?Cold hands and feet/Exhaustion/Weight Gain/Hair Loss -- all a "magic curse" or low thyroid? Bad Osteoporosis/Coronary Artery Disease/Wrinkles -- again a mystery or from low estrogen? Horrible Insomnia/Chronic Fatigue/Muscles that won't heal -- from a virus or from somatropin deficiency? See The Evidence

That This is Really ALL From Undiagnosed Pituitary Dysfunction/Damage/Loss!!! Hundreds of articles referenced and detailed -- no stone left unturned. See why you suffer the way you do, and how to unwind it all! See and understand for the FIRS Time why your ovaries have failed prematurely and what that REALLY means! Find Out Why WHEN You Hit Menopause Things Got REALLY BAD!!! (The DREADED "DOUBLE WHAMMY")

Like many people, I used to spend a good deal of my time fantasizing about the life I wish I had. Caught in the mindset of "I could never do that," "why can't I be more like so and so," and "nothing is ever going to change," I felt my dreams slipping away. But one simple question, why not?, changed my life forever. This phrase challenged to take control of my life and start driving towards the me I always hoped I could be.

The Complete Being: Finding and Loving the Real You will help you realize your own hopes and dreams. This book contains the wealth of my own personal journey to contentment in easy to adapt exercises that you can use to identify and strive towards your own life ambitions. You will regain control of your own destiny by applying these simple yet thought-provoking exercises in the mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical aspects of your life.

What People are Saying About The Complete Being

"The main point I saw in this work, and one I thought was outstanding, is that we are all individuals, unique and that one set formula may not work for everyone. I believe that is what makes her work different than other self-help books."
-Shirley Johnson, Midwest Book Review

"I found myself submersed in this book, discovering it a true source of encouragement, that however overwhelming life becomes, we should stay aware of what we want, never forgetting where we come from or what our dreams are."
-Tracy Jane-Newton, An Alternative View

"The Complete Being is meant to aid you in the further exploration of your wants, needs, and desires as well as your hopes and dreams. It is a very suitable guide for those painful first steps toward self-knowledge.
-Robert Rich, PhD, author of Cancer: A Personal Challenge

From acclaimed author Dr. Jason Fung, a revolutionary guide to reversing diabetes.

Dr. Jason Fung forever changed the way we think about obesity with his best-selling book, The Obesity Code. Now he has set out to do the same for type 2 diabetes.

Today, most doctors, dietitians, and even diabetes specialists consider type 2 diabetes to be a chronic and progressive disease—a life sentence with no possibility of parole. But the truth, as Dr. Fung reveals in this paradigm-shifting book, is that type 2 diabetes is reversible. Writing with clear, persuasive language, he explains why conventional treatments that rely on insulin or other blood-glucose-lowering drugs can actually exacerbate the problem, leading to significant weight gain and even heart disease. The only way to treat type 2 diabetes effectively, he argues, is proper dieting and intermittent fasting—not medication.

Only 1% of the world's assets are held in the name of women. 70% of people in abject povertyliving on less than $1 per dayare women. Over half the women of this generation do not themselves receive, from either employment or the state, enough to 'get by'.

These shocking statistics call to our attention the importance of financial independence among women. Financial dependence, though, is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Dependence can also be noted in Validation and Self Esteem; Mobility and Daily Care; and Emotional Support and A Shield from the World.

Loving, caring, and well meaning spouses, families, and caregivers can unwittingly gnaw away at self confidence and self esteem until a person is trapped in an unhealthy situation.

Are you at risk?
Would you be financially secure without your spouse's income? Do you find it hard to say "No"? Do you feel unlovable or ugly? Have you given up on your dreams? Are you truly unhappy with your life?

If so, there is hope! It is possible to regain your self esteem, rebuild your self confidence, and become independent once more.

Independence is a skill, an attitude, and a lifestyle that anyone can achieve.
