Mastering Emotions (Process)


 Why Stomach Acid is Good for You: Natural Relief from Heartburn, Indigestion, Reflux and GERD
This book is highly informative. It describes digestion/ stomach acid process, ideal acid level(s), numerous disorders / symptoms of too low of stomach acid, and why ACID BLOCKERS are actually TOXIC / DANGEROUS (like Prilosec / Tums) to ingest regularly or indefinitely.

"A really good book I benefited from..." Bonny

By Thaleakala Hew Len & Joe Vitale

 Zero Limits: The Secret Hawaiian System for Wealth, Health, Peace, and More

"This riveting book can awaken humanity. It reveals the simple power of four phrases to transform your life. It's all based in love by an author spreading love. You should get ten copies of it----one for you and nine to give away. It's that good."
---- Debbie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of The Dark Side of the Light Chasers

After 13 years of illness, some good things are happening, and I'm finally on my way to being totally well.  Books that set me on this path are:
Ri's Story - from "Recovery from CFS, 50 Personal Stories" by Alexandra Barton

Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue & Irritable Bowel: Treating Symptoms Treating Cause

By Dr Gregory K. Penniston
(The re-titled new edition to
The Guaifenesin Guide)

A unique book that gives sufferers and their families clear explanations and practical information on every type of treatment for these distressing and hard to manage disorders. It dispels the misconceptions, that lead some people to dismiss these conditions, with thoughtful explanations and reasoning. This book gives emphasis to eliminating the conditions by addressing their 'cause', with a commonly used 'over-the-counter' medication, guaifenesin and provides detailed, easy-to-follow guidelines.



Examining Guaifenesin


Parting the Fog: The Personal Side of Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

By Sue Jones (GG Member)

Parting the Fog" is a candid, first person account of what it is like to walk in the shoes of someone suffering from fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome. It relays the seriousness of this condition in an easy-to-read manner, while employing humor and focusing on hope.


First time customers who shop at iHerb and enter TES117 referral code during checkout will receive an instant $5.00 off their first order.  Guai'ers, herbal products contain salicylates but there may be some vitamins, minerals, etc., at iHerb that are Sal-FreeTM but be sure to check all ingredients in products in the Sal-FreeTM Ingredients data base. 


Crack Up at the Wake of Dawn: Everyday Poetry to Incite and Delight Your Soul

Another great Book from our GG Member Sue Jones!  If you are a fan of "Parting the Fog", you won't want to miss this book. Although it isn't specific to fibro, you WILL find chapters you can closely relate to, since many topics are dealt with. Some of the poems may make you cry, others make you laugh, and still others trigger a thought or give you greater insight. Whichever the case, you won't be left unaffected.
