Guaifenesin is a uricosuric which means it promotes the excretion of uric acid from the body. Due to this action it has been used in the treatment of gout and is also a common ingredient in cough and cold medicines as it helps to clear mucous.

In recent years guaifenesin has found a new use as a treatment for fibromyalgia thanks to the work of Dr. St. Amand. He discovered by accident that Guaifenesin was helping his fibromyalgia patients but now recommends it as a first line treatment for the painful and debilitating condition.

Dr. St. Amand believes that fibromyalgia is the result of an inherited biochemical abnormality resulting in poor excretion of phosphate and oxalate. Treatment with guaifenesin appears to increase the excretion of these substances from the body in the urine. This discovery led Dr. St. Amand to theorize that fibromyalgia sufferers fail to process these substances correctly so that they build up in the tissues. According to Dr. St. Amand, the symptoms of fibromyalgia are a result of the this accumulation of phosphate and oxalate within the body. This leads to impairment of energy production within the mitochondria and may also directly cause the pain and stiffness in the muscles and soft tissue experienced in the illness.

Further research is needed to determine if these theories are correct but it does seem that guaifenesin is of benefit to many fibromyalgia patients. 

Guaifenesin is available as a nutritional supplement either alone or in combination with other ingredients thought to be of benefit in fibromyalgia. It may also be of benefit to those with chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), particularly where pain and tenderness is a major concern.

I can't recommend the guaifenesin protocol highly enough. I have witnessed hundreds, and know of thousands who have regained an active and healthy life. My daughter and I are just two of these. Dr St. Amand has offered us a lifeline with guaifenesin but make sure to read his book, "What Your doctor Might Not Tell You about Fibromyalgia" first and educate yourself thoroughly on the protocol. It needs to be done properly. It isn't difficult and there are lots of people doing it who are happy to give you a hand up. Check out www.fibromyalgiatreatment.com or facebook pages like www.facebook.com/myfibro where you can access local groups to get you started.

Were it not for this treatment, I am sure I would be bed ridden by now..Instead I feel better than I ever did even as a young woman. Doctors need to accept that fibro is not a brain disfunction and that the guai protocol works!!

You must purchase Guaifenesin from a reputable source approved by Dr. St. Amand, use your correct clearing dosage, and avoid all products containing ingredients with salicylates. This requires much due diligence in educating yourself so as to ensure the Guaifenesin works. Pure, long-acting (12-hour), dye-free Guaifenesin is effective and safe for children with FMS. My 4 year-old is on it, and there are no known side effects except mild nausea in rare cases.
Within 2 weeks on the protocol, my daughter was a happy energetic little girl. Children clear much faster than adults since they have less Fibro-debris to eliminate. She had no more pain or fatigue, and all allergy symptoms are gone!
I am 9 months into the protocol. I have no more pain, I can think normally again (no more fog!), I am going for long bike rides and running, I can keep up to my kids, I don't needs rests, I am not stressed out anymore, no depression, and my hair is growing back in. Others have commented on the following symptoms (which I do not have) disappearing: IBS, vulvodynia, allergies, esophageal spasms, back pain... all symptoms caused by Fibromyalgia.
Many people have tried the protocol and failed because they didn't understand how to determine their clearing dosage, were using a type of Mucinex which can cause a false positive thus not using their correct clearing dosage, or didn't understand where salicylates are hiding and what to avoid in ingredients. As a patient of Dr. St. Amand, I have learned how to do this right, and am humbly sharing what I have learned so others can do this with success. This protocol has reverse FMS symptoms in thousands!
