The CDC estimated back in 2005 that approximately 5 million US citizens are affected by Fibromyalgia. Women are more affected than males. The severity of the pain and discomfort leads to many more missed days of work & school for these victims. Is there something that can be done to improve the quality of life for those who suffer? Is the current approach of medications the only help available?
Fibromyalgia is associated with many different symptoms including: wide spread pain, stiffness, fatigue, anxiety, depression, digestive complaints, fibro fog or any of the other dozens of symptoms associated with fibromyalgia? Obviously, not everyone with Fibromyalgia will have identical symptoms. This is why it’s important to focus on such things as balancing body chemistry and brain function as opposed to looking for treatments for the separate symptoms. What you will see is that those who choose to chase their symptoms will end up with multiple drugs. Drugs such as antidepressants, anticonvulsants, narcolepsy drugs, pain relievers, and sleep aids are the most prescribed. It’s not uncommon to then develop side effects of the medications, which again could lead to further drugs.
An alternative approach, utilizing dietary changes, nutritional supplements, chiropractic neurological techniques, and brain based therapies can be used to diminish and resolve the many symptoms associated with Fibromyalgia. Specific tests reveal the specifics of care required. Comprehensive blood tests with specific emphasis on thyroid, sugar, and liver function are required. The blood tests then require a “functional” assessment as opposed to the “traditional” laboratory range analysis. Specific adrenal gland function tests and gastrointestinal evaluations have also proven to uncover important information as it relates to the recovery of an individual. These specific tests reveal how each person will require different care. Unlike other forms of healthcare, no side effects are normally associated with this type of care. Those who suffer with Fibromyalgia have a drugless means to improve the quality of their life and an opportunity to stop the suffering.
