“Fibro Fog” is a well-known term to describe the cognitive impairment that comes with fibromyalgia. One day you have a very active, able brain; sharp, focused. The next, you can’t remember the word for “pen”.

Mantra therapy can be a life changing intervention when performed with intention and integrity. Mantras are like medicine for the soul and can be a powerful tool for transformation and change. When pronounced correctly, the vibrations produced by the ancient Sanskrit sounds evoke a unique vibration in the Universe, sending out your intention and facilitating whatever you are trying to manifest through your mantra.
