Fibromyalgia Natural Treatments (video)

Woman with back pain

People who have fibromyalgia, the medical disorder characterized by chronic and widespread pain, debilitating fatigue, sleep disturbances, joint stiffness, cognitive dysfunction and painful response to pressure may benefit from natural healing methods.

“Fibromyalgia, the “sore all over” syndrome, is a condition that mainly affects women in their late 30s and 40s. People who suffer from fibromyalgia often say they wake up in the morning feeling like they’ve been run over by a truck. Fibromyalgia may be part of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFT), with pain being a more prominent symptom than fatigue. It causes generalized pain and aching throughout the body, morning stiffness, fatigue, disturbed sleep, and tender spots on the body.”

While there is not known cure yet, some practices have shown success in reducing the painful symptoms of fibromyalgia, here are some of them:

1.-Practice low impact aerobic exercises like walking, swimming, yoga to help ease muscle pain and stiffness, increase energy, maintain motion in joints, reduce stress and help with depression.

2.-Visit with a professional acupuncturist trained in treating fibromyalgia, several studies have shown the usefulness of acupuncture in dealing with chronic pain treatment.

3.-Be careful with your diet, some foods help promote a healthy immune system while others are believed to trigger fibromyalgia symptoms. Eat a well balanced diet rich in antioxidants and immune-strengthening nutrients and keep a track of what you are eating to identify any possible triggers.

4.-Practice meditation or different stress management techniques to ease the symptoms of fibromyalgia and live a happier and healthier life.

5.-Use tools to make daily activities easier including heating pads, ice packs, heated mattress pad, electric blankets, neck pillows, shower seats, heated seat cushions, toilet seat riser, etc.

6.-Take SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine), a natural supplement wich helps reduce pain, fatigue and stiffness.

7.-Melatonin supplement is a natural hormone that promotes healthy sleep and ease the fatigue commonly associated with fibromyalgia.

8.-Other natural pain reliever derived from pepper plants is Capsaicin, available over the counter in pain relief sprays and lotions. Promotes the release of a body chemical called substance P, which seems to decrease the sensation of pain when depleted.

9.-Have Epsom salts baths with frequency, it is the easiest way of increasing your intake of magnesium, a mineral that regulates pain and nerve functioning, helps with joint stiffness and increases energy levels.

10.-Join a support group to help you cope with this chronic condition. A fibromyalgia support group is easy to find online and the system of people who understand and identify with the emotions, challenges and frustrations of living with this condition will help you a lot.

    Try to identify your triggers (I have a number of them identified but not all can be avoided (such as stress) and Try a completely Gluten free diet, it has made a world of difference in my pain from Fibromyalgia! I have suffered for 20 years, each year getting worse until I decided to try a Gluten Free diet. It is not difficult just warrants one to read food labels. I have been gluten free for a year now and if I accidently eat or drink something with gluten, caffeine or artificial sweeteners I feel it immediately!

    Could it be possible that in certain susceptible people using antibiotics in the florquineline (Levaquin) group predispose someone to getting fibromyalgia or at least cause a worsening of their symptoms?

    I have live with fibromalgia for more then 20 years and in the begining it wasn,t easy.It is never easy living with chronic pain but when you are told that it is all in your head you start to doubt yourself.I would not wish this pain in any one. You start thinking is it really in your head.It was with the help of a caring doctor that I got the help I needed.With the help of a reuhmatologist,secretary,psycologist,etc.you come to understand that no it is not in your head and try to find a way to deal with it.I must say that I had to spend some time in the psy.ward but life do go on.It would be so mush easy if people could try to understand what we are going through.,Maybe someday with the information that is out there it will make life a little bit easier.Thanks to all the people that makes this possible.

    Hi, I have had fibromyalgia for more than 10 years. I highly recommend herbal and minerals for the reduction of all symptoms. I was taking medicines this and that and believe it actually made me sicker. I now have used the herbs I have gotten from http://www.prohealth.com for two years. I have a great reduction in migraines, swelling, pain, brainfog(although it took me about 2 minutes to remember the word to use)etc. I have been out of my herbs for about 2 months now and have had an extreme flare-up. I definitely know they work. Yoga, and sauna(dry)have helped me tremendously. Natural is the way to go I believe.
