about the podcast
The Fibromyalgia Podcast is designed to encourage hope and educate you on ways you can improve your fibromyalgia symptoms. It is unique because the focus isn’t just on helping you feel less alone or learning how to live with your fibromyalgia diagnosis.
The primary focus of this podcast is helping you to feel better.
After all, that’s what we all want as fibromyalgia patients — to feel better!
In this podcast, your host, Tami Stackelhouse, will interview top doctors, researchers, experts, coaches, and patient advocates in the fibromyalgia community on the latest science and most effective treatment options.
Every ten episodes, Tami will do a special “Ask the Coach” episode where she will answer questions sent in by you, the listeners, from our Ask the Coach page.
In addition, Tami will share “before and after” stories, to encourage you in your journey, and will coach you the same way she has coached her clients over the last decade.
If you are tired of being held prisoner in your own body, and are ready to take back control of your life and health, tune in to the Fibromyalgia Podcast!
Episodes are released bi-weekly on Tuesdays. Subscribe to have episodes sent to you automatically when they are released.
about your host
Diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2007, Tami’s illness became so severe that she filed for Social Security Disability in 2008. By the time her disability case made its way to a judge in early 2010, her health had improved so much that she no longer qualified. Today, Tami is thriving, with enough energy to do the things she wants to do and essentially no body pain. You can learn more about Tami’s journey with fibromyalgia in episode 3, and throughout the entire podcast.
Tami’s compassion, gentle support, and fun coaching style have helped fibromyalgia patients all over the world take back control of their lives.
