About The Fibro Clinic South West
Hi and welcome,
The inspiration for the clinic comes from Jok Saunders, a fellow fibro-fighter, whose life-time career as a nutritional therapist and holistic health practitioner spurred her on to specialize in self-management for fibromyalgia. The clinic’s mission is to help other sufferers with a step by step approach with easy to understand information and education on topics related to fibromyalgia and treatment plans for symptoms such as:
Chronic pain / Allodynia / Hyperalgesia /Parathesia
Sensory overload and heightened sensitivity (visual/touch/smell/noise/pain)
IBS and digestion problems
Low mood / Depression
Intolerances / Allergies
The Clinic offers Fibromyalgia Treatment and Support
We understand the value of SUPPORT and feeling confident that you can share concerns about your illness and how it affects your life. Receiving a diagnosis, learning to live with an invisible chronic condition is a life changing process, grieving, letting go and acceptance of the imposed limitations has a ripple effect throughout, not only our own lives, but also family, social and career. Our very popular support groups are a great way to meet new friends and held in small confidential groups where you can discuss concerns and ask questions, a place to talk freely and feel validated.
