Dr. Steve's Banjo (Homepathic Pain Relief)

Hi, everyone! Pardon the delay in posts and replies, I have had bronchitis for four weeks now and haven't had the energy to keep up with the blog. I am feeling a wee bit better today, so I figured I would get a post in while I am able to do something other than sleep!

A week ago, I started a two month trial of a new alternative treatment for pain, fatigue, and inflammation. Dr. Steve's "Banjo" is a unique mix of herbs that's supposed to help alleviate the symptoms of fibromyalgia, joint pain, and migraines among other things. It comes in lozenge form and tastes sort of like a spicy ginger tea. Dr. Steve has a great website that not only covers fibromyalgia, but also discusses the relationship between fybromyalgia and EDS, and his opinion that a person can have both illnesses simultaneously - that fibromyalgia is not a "symptom" of EDS.


I am very excited to see the outcome of my trial, and of course would be very happy if this relieved even some of the pain and fatigue I deal with everyday. I will post how it goes! And, nope, I am not receiving compensation from Dr. Steve/Banjo. :)

Hi there. I hope that you are feeling better soon.
I am excited to hear how the outcome of your trial goes. I too have been diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos, and Fibro. The pain for me seems to be bareable some weeks, and then other weeks unbareable. It would really help to know that there is something else I could try to help curb some of the pain.

There is also another treatment you can try as well, probably works just as good!

I started with the Banjo about a week ago ... does seems to be some help, still evaluating. Will certainly check back with you. Hope it works for both of us.
