Fibromyalgia, a chronically painful and disabling muscular syndrome, affects some five percent of our population. In one of Aesop's fables, a farmer gives his son a calf and instructs him to lift the small animal every day. As the calf grows in size so does the boy's strength until he is a young man able to lift the bull over his head. Diane Dawber builds her book on fibromyalgia -- a chronically painful and disabling muscular syndrome -- around this fable, telling how she was able to defeat her pain and regain her strength through a regimen of orthomolecular nutrition or nutrient supplements, bodywork exercise, and cleansing of her environment. The title also alludes to lifting the other kind of "bull" -- the various medical myths, wrong diagnoses, and ineffective pharmaceutical and surgical treatments involved with chronic pain syndromes like fibromyalgia -- that must also be lifted or dispelled if the five percent of our population who suffer from some degree of fibromyalgia are to recover.
