Want to learnmore about your FM? Don’t miss our Fibromyalgia Conference….17 days and counting


With so  many folk enjoying our  FM conferences and with the last one a sell out and great success, we are  anxious you should know the clock is ticking and there are not many spaces left.

Yes, you are invited to the 5th international Fibromyalgia Conference  on Friday/Monday March 28/31st 2014 at Chichester Park Hotel in West Sussex, UK.

With 4 day 3 night event  dedicated to the education of fibromites with some fun and laughter in the evenings, this is an opportunity not to be missed.   Our objectives are to invite  FM speakers from abroad plus UK  Consultants and specialists,  to share news of research and progress in the fight to find a cure. Saturday and Sunday offers wall-to-wall speakers with 11 specialists sharing their knowledge with you.

Supported by Folly Pogs Fibromylgia Research, the conference was founded in 2009 with the first conference in 2010. The idea was to raise funds for research, sharing education with those suffering with FM and to offer stage payments to those struggling to get to  more FM education at conference.

For the 2014 conference this month we are delighted that Professor Andrew Holman has agreed to join us for the long weekend. We are even happier that he has agreed to give us our first series of four lectures during the conference. This will conclude with  “THE BIG PICTURE: How BJH, ANS, PC3, sleep and dopamine unify FM. Making Sense of the nonsensical.”

Other speakers  during the conference include  Russian Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride, worldwide lecturer and neurosurgeon who specialises in the gut, psychology and nutrition. Also  Dr Peter Fisher, who is the Physician to HRH The Queen of England, is bringing a team of doctors and specialists who represent a new fibromyalgia clinic  in London.  Other speakers will be talking about mindfulness, hypnotic gastric bands,  healing provided by  Mexican hairless dog, new research relating to nerve ends and fibromyalgia and much more. Delegates are looking forward to the very popular informal sessions for  MEET THE PROFESSOR and MEET THE AUTHOR where they can purchased  books signed by the author.

There are a few double rooms available with twin or double beds. …sorry no singles (bring a friend). The  conference with accommodation and full board plus evening entertainment costs just £200 per person sharing a room  for 4 days and 3 night. The fee includes full  board, accommodation, the conference and all that entails plus entertainment.
