Hi, I'm your Ways to Wellbeing radio host Miriam Henke, health psychologist and life coach, with a passion for integrative medicine and mind-body healing. Ways to Wellbeing is all about exploring ALL the different ways to wellbeing, health and happiness.

Today's episode I am joined by Karina Moore, a fibromyalgia patient who has successfully used mind-body therapies to improve her condition and get her life back on track. Karina and I explore Mindfulness, a mind-body therapy that is getting a lot of attention and has been getting impressive results in psychological research on a range of physical and mental conditions. 

Karina shares her story of how fibromyalgia affected her life, her exploration into mind-body therapies in an attempt to get relief from her pain and suffering, and the results these have had in many areas of her life. Indeed, so inspired by her own experiences, Karina has studied a number of mind-body therapies and will soon be offering her help and support to others.

Mindfulness as a psychological intervention for fibromyalgia was the topic of my own research a couple of years ago, and the results were quite clear that it is indeed a very promising therapy for thousands of fibromyalgia sufferers. This research is soon to be published in the International Journal of Wellbeing.

If you or someone you know suffers from fibromyalgia, chronic pain, or simply has a curiosity as to how mindfulness could help improve your life, then this episode is for you.
