5/23/2013: FibroWHYalgia, by Susan Ingebretson, now available at Nature's Way.
Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Do you want to better understand the root causes of chronic illness? Have you ever wondered "Now what" after receiving a diagnosis? Are you looking for information on how to rebuild your health, and want it in a fun and easy-to-read format? Are you looking for a book to help a friend or loved one deal with chronic illness?

 When Sue Ingebretson found her health spiraling out of control, she wanted to know why.  Her tenacious research into the causes of chronic illness led her through a maze of traditional and nontraditional healing methods. Ingebretson eventually connected the dots and found wellness.  FibroWHYalgia is a half diary/half tutorial guide that exposes the facts, fibs, and fairytales of failing health and offers practical solutions.

FibroWHYalgia contains an abundance of encouragements making it enjoyable and easy-to-read.  Included are detailed descriptions for making nutritional, fitness, and stress-relieving lifestyle changes.

• Feel stressed out most of the time
• Difficulty concentrating
• Difficulty loosing weight

Nature's Way wins CT Magazine© Award- Best Health Food Store 2010!!

Nature’s Way
Stratford, (203) 377-3652 (
This independently owned health food store was ahead of the times 30 years ago when it began educating the community about a healthy sustainable lifestyle. Sure, they have organic foods, bulk herbs, vitamins, natural baby products, chemical-free beauty products, oils, books and so much more, but their staff of naturopaths, nutritionists and practitioners of Chinese medicine, acupuncture and eco-living puts Nature’s Way in a league of its own.

Our customers say…
A few comments on my favorite store… Nature's Way offers extensive and varied product selection to support good health. One is quickly welcomed with a smile and, ‘do you need help?’ One is then accompanied to the product area. The service continues with explanations of the product and your needs and comparisons of other brands as to the contents and amounts of different benefit. Still more service follows with a query as to what you are presently using.
