Rated 3 out of 5 by Wellness solutions for fibromyalgia Some good information. Dietary info almost too basic. There is just a hint of "blame the victim" and many anecdotal examples that are interesting but not useful as tools. The only section useful for ongoing use is the short part on yoga.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Helpful I gave this to my niece who has suffered from Fibromyalgia for many years. She says she really liked the information and the yoga guidance. At least one more option for her.. January 3, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Understanding I was recently diagnosed and have more questions than answers. The doctors all seem to be in a hurry and give vague descriptions with solutions that feel less than helpful. This DVD helped me understand what is going on in my own body in a very informative manner while answering my questions and more. As a lifetime yogi and fan of Yee, I also appreciated a having a new option for using yoga for my health. December 27, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth Owning! I will admit it, I was afraid that watching this once would be the only time I would need to use the DVD, so I sought it out at my library. After watching it, I had my husband watch it, too. Each segment has value, but the segments of Mayo Clinic Docs really hit home as far as explaining the lifestyle options I needed to have in place -- especially for my husband to understand! I enjoyed the relaxation yoga by Rodney Yee a lot, so that clinched my decision to buy. I also ordered more relaxation yoga tapes and resources, plus blocks for support. I am happy to have at least two doctors who have given me new and uplifting advice! October 3, 2008
