    • My favorite fibromyalgia book is called, "FROM FATIGUE TO FANTASTIC" by Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum. I love this book and I have learned many helpful new remedies to reduce fibro pain or fibro-related health challenges.  (Insomnia, Brain Fog, Bladder Problems, Achiness and more.)

      In the book "FROM FATIGUE TO FANTASTIC", Dr. T recommended fibro patients to take Malic Acid with Magnesium & Calcium.  Dr. T stated in his book that he recommends taking 1,800 mg of Malic Acid and 450 mg Magnesium Glycinate for 8 months.  Then he states to cut back to 1/3 this dose.  

      According to vitacost dot com, a discount nutrition website, Malic acid is an alpha-hydroxy organic acid. It is also known as a "fruit acid" or "apple acid," because it can be found in apples and other fruits. Malic acid is a naturally occurring compound in the human body that plays a role in converting food into energy. It also helps remove high levels of phosphorous and aluminum from the body.

      Does anyone diagnosed with fibromyalgia take Malic Acid?  I have been taking it for three years, but I only take 650 mg per day.  I am thinking that it may be helpful to try increasing my dosage of Malic Acid to determine if it reduces my fibro pain level?  

      I will keep you posted once I have increased my dosage.  If you use any natural supplements and they help reduce fibro pain, please share what you use and how you benefit.
