As in any other imbalances in the body, we believe the root cause of Fibromyalgia can be found in one of the following areas:
- Immunological challenges (virus, bacteria, yeast, or parasites)
- Food issues (too much of sugar, wheat, eggs, meat, dairies, etc.)
- Metal toxicity
- Chemical toxicity
- Scar tissue
In my clinical experiences, metal toxicity, especially mercury poisoning on the nervous system, makes the top of the list when it comes to treating Fibromyalgia.
Typically, it takes six months to a year to experience tangible, long-lasting effects. In most cases, we strongly recommend diet and life-style changes for Fibromyalgia patients.
Some key nutrients in fighting Fibromyalgia include:
Found in whole grains, beans, nuts, chicken, fish and eggs; B complex vitamins directly influence the nervous system’s proper functioning and combat nerve problems such as tingling and tenderness.
Found in nuts, grains, beans, fish, meat and dark green vegetables magnesium is needed for muscle flexibility and bone, protein and fatty acid formation. Magnesium is also integral in making new cells, relaxing muscles, clotting blood, aiding in calcium absorption and activating B vitamins.
Directly affecting cellular function, this fatty acid found in fish minimizes nerve sensitivity and improves cognition.
Helps combat stress, builds the immune system and reduces swelling. Vitamin C is found in a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables including citrus fruits, green vegetables, tomatoes and berries.
Increases circulation of oxygen and nutrients throughout the body and helps to eliminate waste.
