It is the only book on fibromyalgia that combines state-of-the-art scientific principles with a MindBodySpirit approach.

Newsletters

Your HealthNOW! Newsletter
    This unique newsletter emphasizes the importance of the connection of mind, body, and spirit in relationship to health. Health is not merely the absence of illness and disease; it is mental, physical, and spiritual well-being, which requires active commitment. The newsletter aims to empower you so that you can be healthier than ever before, whether you believe yourself to be healthy, or whether you struggle with an illness, such as fibromyalgia. You will learn that this empowerment derives from knowledge, understanding, and acceptance of the following: 1) state-of-the-art scientific information, and 2) the MindBodySpirit Connection and it's interrelationships with genetics, environment, and society, as affected by consciousness, thoughts, stress, and emotion. Review the newsletter on this web site, and/or receive a free copy of it if you order either or both books, Fibromyalgia and the MindBodySpirit Connection, by William B. Salt II, MD and Edwin H. Season, M, or Irritable Bowel Syndrome & the Mind-Body/Brain-Gut Connection, by William B. Salt II, MD.
