Episode 56: Fibromyalgia Stories of Hope and Healing #2

Tami interviews three clients on the ways that they have found to improve their fibromyalgia symptoms over the last few months. You’ll hear how Petr, a self-proclaimed “King of Fibro”, discovered just how much he didn’t know. You’ll also hear how Petr’s Fibromyalgia Coach, Micky, helped him in ways his two previous health coaches couldn’t. Julie shares how much her life has changed in the last year and a half, including how she no longer feels guilt and shame over her illness — and how being a coach keeps her accountable. Creating her own perfect life balance helps Viktoriia feel her best, plus a word of encouragement from Viktoriia to our Russian-speaking fibromyalgia community.

You’ll also hear from our commencement speaker, Amy Velasquez Rempel of The Integrative Women’s Health Institute, as she shares her journey from pain and confusion to hope and purpose with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and endometriosis.

Episode 48: You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know

There are things you know you don’t know, like rocket science, maybe. But there are also many things that you don’t know that you don’t know, like your unconscious habits or how your body will respond to a particular fibromyalgia treatment option you never knew existed.

In this special replay, Eva Minkoff, host of the Humancare podcast, interviews Tami to uncover the two lowest points in Tami’s fibromyalgia journey, the thing that turned it all around for her, and how she guides her clients into “knowing what you don’t know.”

Be warned! There is a lot of laughter and fun in this episode! In fact, Tami describes this interview as one of the most fun interviews she’s ever done! Enjoy!
