Felicia Fibro - Life with fibromyalgia, EMPOWERED!

Common Topics

Fibromyalgia Book Review & Giveaway

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED

I recently read Breaking Thru the Fibro Fog: Scientific Proof Fibromyalgia is Real by Dr. Kevin P. White. This book does a great job of explaining what fibromyalgia is, its history, changes within the body of someone with fibromyalgia and common misconceptions. I would highly suggest reading this book if you’re wanting to learn about fibromyalgia basics, current research findings or if you are skeptical that fibromyalgia is real. Whether that information is for you or so you can understand what a loved one is going through, it is well worth it.

book cover

Enter to win this book!

The main text of the book is under 200 pages, which is good for those of us who have trouble concentrating while reading due to fibro fog! More complex thoughts are often broken down into easy to understand example stories and diagrams. You can really tell that Dr. Kevin White wanted the information in his book to be easily accessed by all. Breaking Thru the Fibro Fog is the best book I’ve found, in recent years, for explaining all the not-so-obvious physical changes that are found in people with fibromyalgia. Many fibromyalgia books just skip right over that information! Another great thing is that 15% of all gross proceeds from books sales go to the American Fibromyalgia Syndrome Association (AFSA) to fund research. How cool is that?!

Two lucky giveaway winners will get this book, for free! One winner, with a mailing address in The United States or Canada, will get to pick either the paperback or electronic version of the book. One winner, who lives anywhere outside of The United States or Canada, will win the electronic version of the book. Each action listed below will give you 1 entry into my giveaway! Make sure to leave a separate comment for each action and please include the country that you live in.

I’ll be announcing the winners (picked at random) Friday, August 5th, so you can enter until midnight PST on August 4th. This gives you about two weeks to get entered to win! Entrants must be 18 years of age or older. Good luck!

Disclaimer:  The only compensation I received was a copy of the book to read. This review is comprised of my own, personal opinions.
