Niagara Falls Lit Up for Fibromyalgia Awareness by Karen Lee Richards

By Karen Lee Richards, Health Guide Saturday, May 25, 2013

This year on the evening of May 12 – Awareness Day for several neuro-immune illnesses – Niagara Falls was lit up for 15 minutes each in the awareness colors of three of those illnesses: fibromyalgia, ME/CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) and multiple chemical sensitivities.

If you weren’t able to see that event live on the Niagara Falls Webcam, here are the still shots I was able to capture.

Purple for Fibromyalgia Awareness:

Blue for ME/CFS Awareness:

Green for Multiple Chemical Sensitivities Awareness:

It was exciting to see this national landmark, treasured by both the U.S. and Canada, boldly displaying our awareness colors.

  1. Thank you for sharing your story to help others.

    I too suffered horribly for many years from MCS, EI, CFS, depression and multiple food allergies to name just a few of my diagnoses. Avoidance was my initial and ongoing approach for years while I researched everything I could about all of my conditions – which all started after moving into a new home, that was in 1995..

    Now in 2013 I am:

    100% MCS free
    100% food allergy free
    100% depression free
    100% EI free
    Have excellent energy levels
    I can eat out in any restaurant or home and eat all foods without reactions.
    I can enter and stay in any room, building or anywhere without skewed responses.

    My note to all suffering with the above conditions is:

    1. Continue becoming educated and avoid triggers. This will allow your body time to stop hyper vigilance and reacting and concentrate it’s energies on repair and healing.

    2. Utilize strategies to reprogram your brain and body to stop mounting skewed, excessive and unwanted responses. This may require a paradigm shift in thinking.

    I have been able to duplicate my ‘symptom free’ status with clients. I share my protocol in my book THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION which is now available globally on Amazon.

    You too can become 100% symptom free. Wishing you a full recovery!
