Fibromyalgia seems to be an ever-increasing problem, and while mainstream medicine now recognizes its existence, it is clear that bringing fibromyalgia under control requires far more than simply writing a prescription for an “FDA-approved drug.”
My guest today is a specialist in treating not just the symptoms of fibromyalgia, but the underlying disorder itself. Dr. David M. Brady has 25 years of experience as an integrative practitioner and over 21 years in health sciences academia. He is a licensed naturopathic physician in Connecticut and Vermont, a board certified clinical nutritionist, and completed his initial clinical training as a doctor of chiropractic. He currently serves as the Vice President for Health Sciences, Director of the Human Nutrition Institute, and Associate Professor of Clinical Sciences at the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut. He also maintains a private practice in Fairfield, CT.
Dr. Brady has published a multitude of peer-reviewed scientific papers and textbooks related to chronic pain, autoimmunity and functional gastroenterology and is a featured contributing author in the medical textbooks including: Advancing Medicine with Food and Nutrients (2nd Ed.), and Integrative Gastroenterology. His latest book, The Fibro-Fix, is the subject of today’s interview.
