In this episode, Dr Erik Lundquist from the Temecula Centre for Integrative Medicine, shares the results and learnings of a recent trial using specialised pro-resolving mediators (SPMs) to address fibromyalgia symptoms. As Lundquist relays the details of the study, he offers a genuine account of his experience, bringing to light the complexities and realities of treating individuals living with fibromyalgia. While SPMs may not be a panacea, in his opinion, they are ‘an exciting new tool that we’re just scratching the surface on.’
