What inspired Dr. Groshell to write East Meets West From the Bottom Up

Without knowing the cause of  fibromyalgia, medicine chased symptoms. When medication failed, surgery stepped in. When that didn’t quite do it,  medication returned and without anywhere else to go, medication ultimately won.

Her life no longer belonged to the woman she once was. His hyped-up talks of ditching sickness no matter what were eventually forgotten. The cage she dreamed of escaping became a haven where she hid from the world. Numbing her body, she also had a numb heart. She didn’t notice.

“People suffering from fibromyalgia have been prone to slipping away into a bedridden state of despair when treating their symptoms becomes too much for the body to handle,” Dr. Groshell said. “While medication has it’s benefits, it also has its flaws, especially when multiple medications don’t mix to fight off all the symptoms.”

As he watched fibromyalgia sufferers get lost in a sea of medical uncertainty, Dr. Groshell was determined to find another way. Witnessing familiar faces lose color as fibromyalgia’s unknown cause sucked the life from them and took away something inside his patients, Dr. Groshell decided he wasn’t going down without a fight.

“I battled to win back my patients,” said Dr. Groshell. “One day, as I watched a woman lift her head and look up at me, I saw something in her eyes that I’ll never forget…desperation.”

Teaming up with L.A. based award-winning author, Megan Rellahan, Dr. Groshell wrote the book titled East Meets West From the Bottom Up, a modern day version of fibromyalgia, which starts at the end and works its way toward a new beginning.

Backed by case studies, Dr. Groshell reveals his greatest discovery, one of the main root causes of fibromyalgia.

Along with his new treatment designed to target one of the major root causes,  raw personal accounts of living with fibromyalgia in the darkest days are included.  Digging into the depths of their pain and secrets, “it is my patient’s contribution that deserves special recognition,” said Dr. Groshell. “I offered a medical finding that gave them hope, but their stories are the heart of it all.
