For those suffering with Fibromyalgia in the Carmel Valley area of San Diego, we are continuing our suggestions for you.
Really? No side effects? Safe for Children?
Well there might be some side effects such as dizziness; excitability; headache; nausea; nervousness or anxiety; trouble sleeping; weakness.
And sometimes some...
Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue); difficulty urinating; fast or irregular heartbeat; hallucinations; seizures; severe dizziness, lightheadedness, or headache; tremor.
But other than that no big deal?!
Because it helps get rid of uric acid, guaifenesin was chosen in the 1990s for the experimental guaifenesin protocol – a treatment for fibromyalgia. Proponents of the guaifenesin protocol believe that it treats fibromyalgia by removing excess phosphate from the body. However, a consumer alert on the Fibromyalgia Network's website (http://www.fmnetnews.com/resources-alert-product6.php) states that Dr. St. Amand's claims of guaifenesin's effects on fibromyalgia are groundless, and cites double blind research by Robert Bennett, M.D. which found no significant differences between guaifenesin and a placebo in terms of any effect on fibromyalgia or its markers.
Could taking a medication that eliminates phosphates from the body be useful? If the phosphates are the underlying cause of the Fibromyalgia symptoms then yes. But even then, nutritional approaches could do the same thing without all of the side effects.
Fibromyalgia is obviously a multifactorial condition. Chemical, emotional and physical connections are common. But if the underlying cause is primarily related to the physical body then Guaifenesin or any other chemical approach will have little to no results.
Physical traumas especially to the head and neck are extremely important to make note of and to identify if an undetected injury to the brain stem could be the cause. Brain stem pressure from an upper neck misalignment can be devastating to the human body. All body systems can be affected.

What our Carmel Valley, San Diego Clients Say
"I have used Nucca Chirpractic adjustment approach for over 4 years. When I moved to San Diego, my Nucca provider, Dr. Giffin of Palatine, Illinoi, who is superb, recommended Dr. Dan Sinato, DC, a Nucca practicioner. Dr. Spinato is the same highest level of professional ability as Dr. Giffen. His Nucca procedure has balanced my body through demanding circumstances, since I have Lupus. The energy level provided to me from the Nucca treatments are no less than miraculous. My energy level allows me to perform at top peak of a demanding business. Dr. Spinato's supplements assist my health and performance level, while working in conjunction with my Physican, Dr. Saunders of Santa Barbara for my Lupus treatments of detoxification and healthy, natural supplements. Due to Dr. Spinato, I have been able to drastically maintain a level of normalcy, that I do not see nor hear of among Lupus patients. I know, because I have served on the Board of DIrectors of the Lupus Foundation of Illinois. Anyone, who has fatigue, pain, aches, allergies and other health issues, should seek out a consultation with Dr. Spinato.!!!" - Katherine D.

"I've been going to chiropractors for almost 40 years. Some have helped, others have not. About two years ago, I developed a pounding pressure at the back of my head that caused constant brain fog and chronic fatigue. I was starting to believe that I would have to live out the rest of my life with this debilitating condition.Two of my regular chiropractors had no solutions to my problem. I started researching on the internet about this problem and I found information about the NUCCA procedure, and with a little more searching, was lead to Dr. Spinato, whose office is close to my home. With only two treatments, Dr. Spinato was able to completely cure my headaches and brain fog, and they have not returned. He is different in that he has a lot more techniques than most chiropractors have, and he will try different techniques until he finds one that helps. I would say he is one of the most skilled and open-minded healers I have found. I am very happy I found someone who knows how to do this technique." - Elizabeth B.
