Fibromyalgia & Natural Medicine

Go straight to scientifically proven remedies for fibromyalgia.

Because of fibromyalgia's vague symptoms of muscle pain, fatigue, headache, and gastrointestinal disturbances, it is very hard to obtain a diagnosis. Most people with this disorder see so many doctor's that they inevitably turn to natural medicine.

Naturopaths' Suggestions

Patient's I have seen suffering from fibromyalgia appear very tired and in quite a lot of pain.

Some patients have even described the pain as like having poison injected into their muscles.

Finding the source of this pain can be a tiring set of tests and the usual set that your GP prescribes, inevitably come back normal.

Sufferers also show no inflammation, just sore muscles.

If the triggers of fibromyalgia are viral and/or stress, then it makes sense to start treating the immune and the nervous system.

SAMe and Fibromyalgia

SAMe has been successful in a large percentage of patients that I have seen. SAMe is an excellent natural anti-depressant therefore increasing the 'feel good' chemicals in our brain. Patients have reported being much happier and had less stress after just two weeks of using SAMe. Their sore muscles therefore were less noticeable because they felt happier. This supplement also releives 'brain fog' to a certain extent and improves poor memory. Check to see if SAMe is a proven natural medicine.

Magnesium and Fibromyalgia

This disorder involves a large amount of muscle pain so it makes perfect sense to use a natural muscle relaxant. Taken in larger quantities at night, magnesium can also help with sleeping problems. Magnesium Citrate will ease not only your muscle pain but also let you sleep better at night as it helps stop restless leg syndrome.

Diet and Lifestyle for Fibromyalgia

Although sufferers dont feel up to exercising, light exercise is the best thing they can do for their muscles. Light stretching helps to limber up the muscles and the exercise helps to release those 'feel good' chemicals in the brain so we feel fantastic afterwards. You may want to lie in a hot bath with epsom salts or lectric soda after, but I can guarantee that you will feel better for it.

A good balanced diet that is free of processed and packaged food is essential in fibromyalgia as sufferers report having sensitive stomachs. Patients find that they are no longer able to eat or drink what they used to. The lighter and more frequent the meals, the better. Eat plenty of raw and fresh foods as this provides important enzymes to help in digestion.

Chelation Therapy for Fibromyalgia

A lot of patients have reported success with their pain when they have undergone chelation therapy. This is a process where toxins are removed from your system. For more detailed information on this topic please visit this site about toxic metals and fibromyalgia.

Low-oxalate diet for Fibromyalgia

Many fibromyalgia patients have noticed a great relief of pain when they have followed a diet low in oxalates. Oxalates are a naturally occurring chemical compound found in certain plants. When these oxalates bind with other properties in the body such as calcium, they can cause sharp needle like crystals that deposit in areas such as the muscles. This can cause immense pain and is often seen in people with kidney stones. When undertaking a low oxalate diet you are restricting the formation of these crystals and therefore reducing that burning piercing pain that is associated with fibromyalgia.
