Hello Lou, Sorry to wait so long to reply. The program I am in works like bio-feedback. I began the program by omitting all the foods that most people have found they are allergic to (such as coffee, milk, orange juice,etc). After a period of "detox" I started introducing one food at a time back into my diet. When your system is cleared of those toxic foods, you will find out if the food you introduce is going to cause a "Fibro Flare" or not. Then you will KNOW to avoid that particular problem food. There aren't a lot of foods that affect you that way, but it is good to know for sure what will start trouble! This is an ongoing program where you make a report to a Doctor on a daily basis. The report consists of YOUR evaluation of how you feel pain wise by using a scale of 0 to 9. The more severe the pain, the higher the number. They keep a graph to show how you progress over time. That graph is strictly yours. You can tell a lot by watching it. The less pain, the lower the number. The Doctor communicates with you on the internet on a daily basis. A place is provided on the form on which you make your report for you to ask questions or make comments you want the doctor to know about. I know it sounds complicated, but it has really worked for me and I am still not having to take pain medication. If you contact me personally, I will be glad to share the web site with you. Best wishes to you in the days ahead!
