WHAT IS FIBROMYALGIA SYNDROME?
This is what medicine has to conventional medicine has to say!
FMS (Fibromyalgia syndrome) is a widespread musculoskeletal pain and fatigue disorder for which the cause is still unknown. Fibromyalgia means pain in the muscles, ligaments, and tendons ď the soft fibrous tissues in the body.
Most patients with FMS say that they ache all over. Their muscles may feel like they have been pulled or overworked. Sometimes the muscles twitch and at other times they burn. More women than men are afflicted with FMS, and it shows up in people of all ages.
To help your family and friends relate to your condition, have them think back to the last time they had a bad flu. Every muscle in their body shouted out in pain. In addition, they felt devoid of energy as though someone had unplugged their power supply. While the severity of symptoms fluctuate from person to person, FMS may resemble a post-viral state. This similarity is the reason experts in the field of FMS and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) believe that these two syndromes may be one and the same. Gulf War syndrome also overlaps with FMS/CFS.
SYMPTOMS AND ASSOCIATED SYNDROMES
Pain - The
pain of FMS has no boundaries. People describe the pain as deep muscular aching,
throbbing, shooting, and stabbing. Intense burning may also be present. Quite
often, the pain and stiffness are worse in the morning and you may hurt more in
muscle groups that are used repetitively.
Chronic headaches -
Recurrent migraine or tension-type headaches are seen in about 50% of FMS
patients and can pose a major problem in coping for this patient group.
I have found that the majority of Fibromyalgia is misdiagnosis of another condition. Many people with pain or fatigue that is localized or undiagnosable to their General Practitioner is labeled Fibromyalgia. The following steps were developed by myself through clients and my own personal experience. They have been successful in over 90% of cases. I give this information freely because I have had to deal with the condition for so long! I hope it works well for you.
The steps are designed to rule out any misdiagnosis or underlying conditions that cause these symptoms. Do each step for at least 2 weeks before moving on. Keep progressing to the next step until you are well.
Steps To Fibromyalgia Recovery
Step 2: Have bodily PH tested. If it is acidic (under 7.0) Immediately eliminate all grains ( see gluten free living) reduce animal protein and begin juicing (especially cucumber, black cherry, melons and lemons) Drink half your body weight a day in ounces of distilled water. Continue this diet until PH is in normal range. Then slowly add back protein. And monitor PH and reduce protein as needed.
Step 3: Have your Thyroid levels checked. TSH and Free T3. Take Free Thyroid Function Test!
New guidelines are normal TSH 0.3-3.0!
Step 6: If you have Mercury Amalgam (Silver) Fillings. Get them removed by a Huggins trained Dentist. You are risking your health by having anyone else do it. Make sure you do 2 courses of Life Flo Metal X afterwards.
Step 7: Seek Chiropractic advice to check for postural abnormalities that may be causing pain.
Step 10: Make sure you are getting enough fiber. You should be "moving" 1-3 times a day. If not start a good colon cleanse. Then add a daily fiber supplement. My favorite is Psyllium Fiber 1-3tbsp day or juice plums or prunes.
Step 11: Get chemical free! Filter of distill water, get shower filter, use natural non chemical soaps, shampoo, household cleaners, laundry products, fluoride free toothpaste, natural room fresheners like essential oils; donít use plug-ins, carpet fresh or any artificial perfumes; find natural alternatives to pesticides indoors and out, find aluminum free deodorant, nix artificial sweeteners use stevia, stay away from dyes, preservatives
Step 12: Start exercising! I know itís hard but start with gentle stretching and work up to walking or swimming (Not in Chlorinated pools). You will feel much better.
These are just the basics on the road to good health. Take your time; donít try to do everything all at once. Remember these are STEPS! If you have ANY questions or need any help please email.
