What Does It Take To Get Better?

11 Things You Need For Your Fibromyalgia Healing Journey

After more than a decade of helping clients improve their fibromyalgia symptoms, Tami has learned what it really takes to get better — and it might not be what you think!

Yes, you do need effective fibromyalgia treatment, a fibromyalgia specialist to guide you, and a good doctor who treats you with respect and compassion. However, these aren’t usually the same person!

Tami has also identified nine additional things that are just as critical on your journey. Listen in to learn what Tami has found to be key in all of her client fibromyalgia healing stories — and key to her own fibromyalgia remission.

Key Points

  • Living your best life with fibromyalgia requires addressing three areas: treating what’s going wrong in your body, lifestyle, and mindset.
  • You need an expert to guide you. If you knew how to get better on your own, you probably would have by now.
  • You need a good doctor on your team.
  • Cultivate a beginner’s mind.
  • Make feeling better your top priority. Your fibromyalgia will not get better by accident.
  • Shift your focus from thinking about your fibromyalgia to focusing on your healing.
  • Take ownership of your health and fibromyalgia healing journey.
  • Listen to your body without any judgement or drama.
  • Practice self-compassion. Treat yourself the way that you would treat somebody that you love.
  • Adjust your expectations.
  • Become a planner.
  • Make the best choice in each moment.
