From Bedridden With Fibro to Hiking Mountains Again!

“I knew something was drastically wrong with me, but the doctors didn’t seem to have a clue. I became deathly ill, and was totally bed ridden. For the first time in my life, I wasn’t sure I would pull through. I lay in bed and felt like every organ in my body was being attacked. At 52 years old, I didn’t want my life to end yet.”


Janna had been sick, really sick, for years.


​Diagnosed with fibromyalgia, she’d consulted numerous specialists, tried all sorts of remedies, diets, supplements, drugs, physical therapy, massage, chiropractic, acupuncture, nothing had helped.


She was desperate. With tears in his eyes and desperation in his voice, John Anderson (Janna's husband), shared, that without a dramatic turn around, this may be his wife’s last Christmas. 


“You’re our last hope,” he said.  


I often ask patients what is their why? Why do they want to get healthy? What’s their motivation?


Janna’s “why” was,  “I want to be able to hike the mountains with John again.”


Janna was determined.  She joined my coaching program.


Within a month of starting the program and making the changes I recommended, not only was she out of bed, she felt and looked better than she’d had in years. 


And within a few months, she was back hiking mountains in Colorado with John once again.

 

“I have energy and can make it through the day without going back to bed, whereas before, I could only be up for a short time before laying down again. The pain I was in is about 95% reduced. 


I am doing everything I used to do again. In fact, we have been on vacation in the mountains this month, and I have done everything from hiking to biking and canoeing!


My husband and I have commented over and over about how different things are from just a few months ago.


I highly recommend Dr. Murphree’s program. Your health is so important, and it is worth every penny to get a doctor who truly cares and can actually do something to help you.”  - Janna Anderson

There were some CRUCIAL changes that made all the difference in Janna being able to overcome being bedridden, with chronic pain, fatigue and other fibromyalgia symptoms.

One CRUCIAL step in particular, is KEY for overcoming pain and fatigue. This one step helped 52 year-old Chris, regain her health and play basketball once again.


Yes, basketball.


Let me explain.

 

Like Janna, Chris Ackman, had been ill for many y ears. She’d been to numerous doctors. Tried all sorts of drugs, supplements and therapies.

 

Nothing had worked.

 

She was miserable, ready to literally give up on life (I wanted to “self gas myself”).

 

While Janna was motivated to get well so she could hike mountains with her husband again-

 

Chris wanted to play basketball with her grandchildren.

 

Chris wanted more than anything else to be involved, active with her three sons, daughter, and 8 grandkids, and yes play basketball.

 

Fibro Rescue Member Chris Ackman:

 

“By the time I found Dr Murphree I was house bound, couldn’t drive…

 

I was diagnosed with PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome) at 16, fibromyalgia , osteoarthritis in 95% of my joints 20 years ago. Interstitial Cystitis, IC, I think 8 years ago now.

 

I was house bound, couldn’t drive, pay bills, my desk was a clustered mess as was my brain.

 

Within two weeks working with Dr M in the group, coaching program, I was sleeping again, finally. In two months I was building up stamina, getting stronger, doing more, traveling again.

 

By six months I was confident behind the wheel again. Everything just kept building from there.

 

I’ve seen no other doctors, I am on no meds. My mood is great. I can have toddlers all day again and truly enjoy them and not be wiped out for a week after. My desk is organized again… I could go on and on and on.”

Here is a fun SHORT video Chris shared:

For Debbie, existing day-to-day, “learning to live with fibromyalgia,” made her a prisoner in her own home.

 

“I was just existing, hanging on day to day, lying in bed hoping for a miracle.”

 

Debbie was in bed most days and had given up on LIVING and was just EXISTING.

 

 “A prisoner in her own home.”

“I felt like a prisoner. I couldn’t do much of anything……. I had a lot of days when I would be laying in bed and I’d be in tears, because I would say this isn’t me to refuse to do this or to go somewhere with my friends…. I had to do it, because I knew I wasn’t going to have enough energy to do it.

 

Even a shopping trip or something, I couldn’t do it."

 

Fibromyalgia can rob you of many things, family, friends, careers, hobbies, sleep, household duties, cooking, traveling, intimacy, mental clarity, joy, purpose, and hope.

 

For Debbie, the loss of her friends, was the last straw. She was determined to get her friends and LIFE back. 

She joined my Program.

 

Debbie took the information I shared in the Coaching Program and found her “miracle.”

Fibro Rescue Member Debbie from Ocala Florida shares more…

 “Now they’re like “Gosh you’re so energetic, we can’t stand it.” “Do you remember her last year? She could hardly keep up with us.” It’s amazing to wake up and say, “Hey I don’t have any pain.”

 

That is miraculous!

 

I feel like I climbed such a big hill. I just turned 60 and I don’t know what I would have been like turning 60 years old, if I had still been in the same condition.

 

Now I want to get out, I want to live life and meet new people, travel … I want to do all that, and now I feel like it’s possible.”

 

And she did…..over the course of a few weeks she was able to dramatically reduce and in some cases eliminate her fibromyalgia symptoms and start LIVING again.

The Clinically Proven protocols shared in the Fibromyalgia Coaching Program made all difference in her being bedridden, a prisoner in her own house, missing out on life.... to LIVING life again!

Taking drugs to cover up symptoms, INSTEAD OF CORRECTING THE UNDERLYING CAUSES of your fibro pain, fatigue, brain fog, poor sleep, etc, is potentially dangerous, and offers little if any long-term relief.

Years ago I owned a large integrated medical practice on the campus of Brookwood Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama.  

 

My fellow doctors and I learned the hard way, that drug therapy ALONE, was rarely helpful (at least long term), often caused side effects, and led to more and more health problems.

 

Trying to cover up symptoms instead of correcting the underlying causes, is expensive, and often fruitless, and a dead end for fibromyalgia.

Fixing the underlying causes of your fibro symptoms is the KEY FOR REDUCING OR ELIMINATING FIBROMYALGIA SYMPTOMS!

Frankly….. It’s the difference between “learning to live with fibromyalgia” and overcoming fibromyalgia!

 

It’s the difference between “EXISTING” and LIVING.

 

After working with thousands of fibro patients over the last 20 plus years I’ve been able to uncover THE KEY underlying CAUSES of fibromyalgia pain, fatigue, poor sleep, IBS, low moods, and brain fog.

 

And more importantly I’ve developed SPECIAL protocols to fix these underlying causes of chronic fibro pain, fatigue, brain fog, poor sleep, IBS, RLS, and low moods.

 

AND I share these easy to follow step-by-step symptom correcting protocols in the Fibro Rescue Program.

Cynthia Anderson was on a dozen drugs when she joined my Program. Not only did her drugs not help, they caused her numerous side effects.

“I am 49 years old and have suffered with symptoms of Fibromyalgia for over 20 years.

 

I must’ve changed drugs 10 times before Paxil. Then came the weight gain. I gained a total of 90 pounds with no luck shedding any of it. This caused my aches to become even more severe.

 

Eventually after seeing 5 doctors then finally a Rheumatologist I was prescribed Cymbalta, Tramadol, Ambien (and several other sleeping pills along the way), Savella, Flexeril, anti-inflammatories, water pills, IBS pills, pills for rashes and acne, migraine pills, and at one point had hyperthyroid and took meds for that.

 

Pretty much every anti-depressant out there I tried it! It all seemed to work for a while, but then quit working and other side effects were sometimes worse than the actual problems.

 

For years I lived my life not sleeping, suffering from intense pain all over, unrelenting fatigue, fibro fog, isolation, vertigo, allergies, chronic sinus infections, sciatica, foot pain, restless leg syndrome, anxiety over not being able to have enough energy to participate in everyday life, and many other odd symptoms that seemed to never go away.

 

I could no longer get out of bed for almost a year. 

 

Thank God my husband, Chris, really understood it. He knew that I’d rather be doing anything other than being in bed! I just didn’t know how to get better.

 

It seemed that I’d tried everything out there, read every book, and just felt overwhelmed with what to do.

 

I prayed.

 

My prayers led me to Dr. Murphree.

 

After a few weeks (of being in the Program) I began to feel better. The fatigue began to lift.

One day after following Dr. Murphree’s instructions, I woke up feeling better than I had in years. I didn’t know what to do with myself! The next thing you know I had 28 days of no Fibro!

My family and friends noticed a difference in me.

 

More energy, weight loss, less bloated face, and overall happier.

 

Some said that I was my “old” self again.

 

After joining the program I lost over 40 pounds, my pain levels were low, fatigue was so much better, my fog was gone, IBS gone, sleeping 6-8 hrs a night. I could actually look forward to getting up in the morning instead of dreading it!

 

I thank God everyday for Dr. Murphree and all his years of research and care! I am so blessed!”

Leaky Roofs and Wet Kitchen Floors….

Let me explain…..

 

Are you continuously mopping the kitchen floor? Chasing symptoms leads to more symptoms.

 

Taking drugs to cover up the symptoms of fibro is like having to repeatedly mop the kitchen floor after it rains.

Mopping the wet floor TEMPORARILY removes the symptom (a wet floor). However, every time it rains, the floor is wet and you must mop it again.

The symptom is the wet kitchen floor.

 

The cause is the leaky roof.

 

You can continue to ignore the leaky roof but eventually there will be additional problems to deal with.

 

The leak gets worse, the ceiling collapses, and the floor must be replaced.

 

Wouldn’t it be better the fix the leaky roof instead of enduring years of repeatedly mopping the kitchen floor?

 

And ... Wouldn’t it be better to fix the underlying causes of your fibro symptoms, rather than taking potentially dangerous drugs to cover them up?

 

Trying to cover up symptoms instead of correcting causes is expensive, fruitless, a dead end for fibromyalgia. 

 

The side effects often cause more symptoms and more drugs.

 

The Fibro Rescue Program focuses on helping you find and FIX the underlying causes of your fibromyalgia symptoms.

SHE WAS TAKING 13 DIFFERENT DRUGS

And was miserable….. She joined my Program, now she takes none!

 

Judy Newport was on 13 different drugs when she started the Program.

 


“Dear Dr Murphree, as an office manager of a physician’s office for over 25 years, I have found it exhausting having fibromyalgia and since 2002, to deal with the medical world; seeing one specialist after another and to be prescribed one drug for each new symptom...."

 

By the grace of God, I found you. I broke down in tears. Is there really someone who has the slightest idea of the true hell I go through each day, never knowing how my day will be? I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. 

 

I take more meds than my 84 year old father takes.

I was on 13 medications everything from sleep medication to Cymbalta, to Vitamin D, to restless legs, Flexeril, Synthroid …

 

For pain, I was up to taking 8 Vicoprofen a day which I knew in the back of my mind from being in the medical field, none of these drugs were good especially with liver toxicity …

 

I can’t keep doing this the rest of my life, I have to find other answers.

Dr. Murphree’s Program helped me get off all my medications.

And when I went back for the first time to my PCP to do all new blood work this past October, and it was my first time to tell him that I stopped everything and he just looked at me.

 

He was supportive because he said, “Judy I know what you’ve been through for 13 years. If something is going to help you, I say go for it.”

 

He called me when the blood work came back and he said, this is the first time in 13 years that all your blood work is within normal limits.

 

That was like, I am on the right track, the Program is working.

 

My migraines have totally gone away. I’ve had problems with fibrocystic breast disease and I go every 6 months for a mammogram and follow it up with a sonogram because I have 3 areas of concern of calcification that they always have to double check.

 

I went Friday, the radiologist came back in the room and said, I just wanted to ask you what have you done in the past 6 months?

 

Have you changed something?

 

I said, “What do you mean?” He said, “Let me show you these 3 spots” and he got the film out and showed it to me.

 

He said, “Here’s your X-rays for your mammogram. They’re not there anymore.”

 

I just explained that I’m working with a fibromyalgia specialist, taking natural supplements he recommends, advice he shares, and changing my diet, I’m getting rid of all the inflammation. That has to be the answer.

 

The radiologist said, “You keep doing whatever you’re doing. You didn’t have to have your sonogram today. Everything looks great!”

 

I thought I would be the last person to ever try something like this, but I am so glad that in the past 90 days it has made more improvement in my overall health from my head to my toes, than anything that I have done in 13 years.”

Most Doctors Are Clueless About Fibromyalgia

 

Most doctors fail to help their fibro patients because they DON’T TRULY UNDERSTAND FIBROMYALGIA.

 

I’m interviewed on multiple podcasts, summits, and documentaries every month.

 

RARELY, do any of these leading health experts understand fibromyalgia.

 

Their intentions are noble but their understanding of fibro is lacking.

 

In Fact….

 

It’s easy to get ‘lost” and spend a lot of time and money, detoxing, doing “parasite cleanses,” trying one diet after another, taking all sorts of expensive drugs and or supplements only to realize you’re no better off than before.

 

Wasting time and money on UNPROVEN therapies is a common theme in the fibro community.

Kelly Finds The Missing Pieces of the Puzzle and Overcomes Her Fibromyalgia

 

“I felt run down all the time and eventually, my upper body ached a bunch … I couldn’t sleep at night, I would cry. I saw many different doctors and was given the diagnosis of fibromyalgia.

 

Then my quest to heal myself began. I searched out different doctors, read what I could on the Internet, tried different protocols and some of them helped me, but I always felt like it was a puzzle with pieces missing.

 

The Program saved me years of suffering and thousands of dollars….

 

I’d just like to say to people out there wondering should I try this or not, and if you’ve tried a lot of things but they haven’t quite worked out, I know where you’re at.

 

I can honestly tell you that if you put your all into your program, that you can find a way out of your despair and your pain … into having the life that you want. We all deserve that.”    - Kelly

I understand.

I realize you’ve probably spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars trying different doctors, drugs, diets, supplements, and remedies.

 


And nothing has worked.

 

You’re Probably Thinking……

 

  • “I’ve tried everything & nothing has worked.”
  • “I’ve spent thousands of dollars on doctor visits, tests, drugs, and supplements, and nothing helps.”
  • “I’ll never feel good again.”
  • “It may help others but it won’t help me.”
  • “No one can help me.
  • I’ll have to learn to live with it”

 

I KNOW YOU ...

  • feel discouraged.
  • have gotten your hopes up before, only to be disappointed time and time again.
  • have spent thousands of dollars, tried dozens of doctors, drugs, supplements, diets, and therapies, and nothing has REALLY helped.
  • are in pain, exhausted, can’t sleep, battle brain fog, low moods, and irritable bowel syndrome symptoms of bloating, gas, and stomach pain.
  • you’re get up and go that has got up and went.
  • often feel stressed out, exhausted and misunderstood by family and friends.
  • that little stressors, loud noises, traffic, travel, shopping, cooking, cleaning, social events, entertaining, even changes in the weather can send you into a fibro flare and make you feel miserable for days.
  • are EXISTING with fibromyalgia. Not LIVING, existing.
  • are sick and tired of being sick and tired.
  • have endured years of chronic life draining pain, bone rattling fatigue, sleepless nights, brain fog... and you may be ready to give up.

This Program Is Different - Here’s why…..

 

Unless doctors SPECIALIZE in fibromyalgia, have had years, and years, of experience treating difficult fibromyalgia patients, the results will be the same, fleeting, perhaps minor improvement, but nothing dramatic and nothing long term.

 

Fibromyalgia is a uniquely, complicated illness, different from all other conditions. It shows no mercy for those who won’t take the time (years) to understand or respect how complicated it can be.

 

The end result is the same.

 

A cabinet FULL of drugs and supplements, money spent, but NO LASTING RELIEF from your fibro pain and fatigue.

 

You may feel Hopeless. 

 

Don’t Give Up.

From Hopeless to Back in the Saddle Again….

 

Kim wanted to ride horses again.

 

“I had been to numerous doctors. Tried everything you can think of.

 

Nothing helped.

 

I was fed up with doctors who didn’t understand what I was going through.

 

The pain was awful … Energy… I had none.

 

I had no energy and I lost friends over it, because I’d have to cancel things. I literally had no energy. 

 

I lost interest in my favorite things, my scrapbooking, my horses … just doing anything was difficult. Even walking down to the corner and back was almost impossible. 

 

I felt hopeless.

 

And now, after being in the Program, it’s like a 180 degree turn. 

 

I’m sleeping at night, I’m up in the morning, I’m back in school, I’m riding my horses and walking my dog, I’m active around my house, I’m in my yard doing gardening.”
