Cellular Nutrition: In order for all your cells to function optimally, they must be able to absorb the nutrients you consume. Starting in the digestive tract, you need both balanced nutrition and receptive cells to accomplish this feat. When either or both of these systems are impaired memory, clear thinking, problem solving and even mood can be affected.
Eating healthy foods on a daily basis has been found to help people with Fibromyalgia and other disorders like it. Fibromyalgia can be quite debilitating, sucking the life out of you, as well as, your zest for life.

Remember a healthy nutritious diet means one low in fat, sugary items, processed foods, healthy proteins and carbohydrates, with plenty of fruits and vegetables as well as adequate intakes of water. While sustaining from cigarettes and only consuming moderate alcohol, with also a daily exercise regime of 1/2 hour of strenous exercise.
According to an article posted in WebMD, they found a few foods that seem to sometimes cause problems with people suffering from Fibromyaglia. Try an elimination diet for these “trigger foods” on a rotating basis to see which food maybe the cause. Aspartame, Sugar, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) thats found in flavored chips, sauces/gravies, pre packagng foods, gluten, dairy, night shade plants and some processed foods.

The similarities and differences between fibromyalgia (nerves) and polymyalgia (muscle) and various types of arthritis are indistinguishable. However, these illnesses share common symptoms, such as joint pain, fatigue and flu like symptoms. It’s not unusual for FM to occur with other disorders like ~ Rheumatoid 0r Osteoarthritis, lupus, multi sclerosis etc. what can begin as RA can turn into FM and the solutions don’t work .
FM ~ causes our bodies to become overly sensitive, for instance when the average person stubs a toe, the pain last a few minutes and begins to subside. However, when a fibromyalgia patient stubs a toe, initial pain is in the toe than a hour later it’s in the foot and hours later it’s in the leg. What fibromyalgia patients realize are the coping skills are different and what works for arthritis doesn’t work for them. A N e w T r e a t m e n t!
Therefore some of the best coping tips are to keep moving, but not over doing it. Because becoming exhausted increases pain, 0nce the pain starts it’s tough to control and even with some of the topical crème may not help (Absorbine Jr 0r Ultra Strength BenGay is rendered helpless.) Also listen to your body and what it’s crying for and also figure out how to minimize stressors. As stress can increase pain and also staying away from the night shade vegetables that can make you hurt.
With another unorthodox method not accepted nor fully understood by western medicine with experts never having under gone acupuncture, that complication such as fainting and dizziness being associated with the sham practice …it’s hardly warrants consideration. I have talked to people that said never knock something you haven’t tried for yourself. According to acupuncture critics the dangerous mumbo jumbo that goes with it, isn’t worth the placebo effect you gain from neuroscience.
Practitioners claim by inserting fine needles into 360+ specific pressure points in the human body, that it can unblock area’s affecting the meridians (channels of energy) that run up and down the body, thereby, healing the injury or what ails them. Dr. Andrew Vickers, an expert in biostatistics and research methods at Memorial Sloan – Kettering Cancer Center in NYC.
Found when they analyzed the results of 29 high quality trials involving 17,922 people having different sorts of chronic pain – arthritis, back, neck, headache and shoulder pain, and already was being treated by their doctor with the acupuncture being an added treatment. At the start of the study and being ask the level of pain – most responded with a 60/100 reply, than after acupuncture most responded with an average 35 rating with a sham acupuncturist and 30 with a traditional acupuncturist.
Also Vitaly Napadow, professor of radiology at Harvard Medical School, whom has run a number of studies on the way the brain changes in response to acupuncture. Went onto report his findings that sham and traditional acupuncture affect different areas of the brain. With the latter stimulating pathways involved with providing endorphins (natural painkillers.)
Areas of the human brain that process pain are stimulated by traditional acupuncture, not by sham and a lot has been given to the consideration of the point you access and depth of the needle. With the risk of puncturing the lung a probability and anyone trained should have the absolute skillset from the best Society of Acupuncturist to guard against this risk. Therefore do your research before determining which acupuncturist you want to see.
With 11 to 18 triggering points, anxiety, apathetic manner and feeling the blues, tender muscles and joint aches, fatigue from trouble sleeping and cloudy thinking from brain fog. Fibromyalgia can be tough to deal with when gone misdiagnosed. While Sue Ingebretson, a Holistic Doctor and author of FibroWHYalgia, thinks factors such as nutritional deficits, food allergies and thyroid issues can play a role.
Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum M.D., author The Fatigue & Fibromyalgia Solution attributes symptoms to chronic stress and Dr. R. Paul St. Amand, author of What Your Doctor Won’t Tell You About Fibromyaglia, believes a build up of phosphates (bone strengthening minerals is to blame.) He also sees that in 100 percent of his patients their is a pain or spasm in the left thigh.
Dr. St. Amand’s reports that his Guiafenestein Protocol, brings relief to up to 91 percent of the fibromyalgia suffers he treat. Involving talking 300mg of extended – release Mucinex twice daily for a week (he suggest that splitting a 600 mg pill) under a doctor’s care is the way to go. If symptoms intensified in the first week, that’s a sign that guiafenestein is working and continuing with that dose should bring relief.
If symptom’s don’t worsen (a sign that phosphates are being released) the dosage should be increased by 300 mg daily to up to 1,800 mg a day. But NOTE: on this plan, it’s key to avoid personal care products containing salicylates which block guiafenesin’s action.

Also other tips off this plan: Ingebretson says, experts suggest including Vitamin D 2000 IU daily, magnesium (320 mg daily), Fish Oil 1000 to 2000 milligrams daily and CoQ10 (up to 100 mg daily.) Another Option research from Dr. Teitelbaum finds taking 5 grams of D-Ribose three times a day revs pep by 61 percent plus ease pain. His choice is Corvalen Ribose from DouglasLabs.com
