Free health seminar to educate on chronic illnesses

November 13, 2009

A free health seminar Saturday at Midland College will provide information to attendees about the help available for those living with or diagnosed with a chronic illness, chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia.

The event is hosted by the West Texans Living with Chronic Fatigue/Fibromyalgia Syndromes support group in honor of the organization’s 15th anniversary. It will be from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Wagner Brown Auditorium at the college and is sponsored by Natural Foods Market.

Dr. Todd Nelson, a leading naturopathic doctor from Denver, Colo., will be the seminar’s guest speaker. He will address topics concerning both fibromyaligia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as well as discuss new functional medicine breakthroughs and how one can apply other alternative methods for helping people living with the chronic conditions.

Fibromyalgia is characterized by soft tissue pain and soreness accompanied usually by fatigue and many other symptoms that can be related to headaches or irritable bowel syndrome. Symptoms sometimes cross over to those of chronic fatigue syndrome.

The seminar is an open to anyone who suffers from one or both syndromes and for those whose friends and family members may suffer from them.

Linda Hagler, one of the co-founders of the support group, said she was amazed by how many people in the area have been diagnosed or have had the symptoms of the syndromes and have wanted more information over the years.

Approximately 150 to 200 individuals are expected to attend the two-hour long event Saturday.

“The group is to basically be a support for not only the people diagnosed, but also to be a positive support for educating others,” she said.

The group meets once a month on the second Thursday at noon at 900 W. Wall St. Meetings are free and open to the public.

Hagler said Saturday’s seminar will provide information that will apply to everyone who wishes to improve their health and well being.

“Our purpose is to educate and support and let people know what’s available in the community,” she said.
