Healing Fibromyalgia


Fibromyalgia (FM) is one of the fastest growing disease-syndromes of the past 10 years and for many people has been misdiagnosed and mismanaged. Many physicians consider FM to be incurable, because no drugs have been found that reliably relieve the chronic pain and other symptoms. However, if we look at FM from an integrated, naturopathic perspective, we learn more about its causes as well as its cure.

Many fibromyalgia patients suffer from both chronic pain and chronic fatigue which can be caused by or worsened by the following:

  • Genetics
  • Allergies to chemicals
  • Food sensitivities or allergies
  • Viruses
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Thyroid imbalances
  • Adrenal dysfunction
  • Poor digestion
  • Candida overgrowth
  • Spinal misalignments
  • Stress
  • Neurotransmitter deficiencies
  • PTSD

Fibromyalgia is a multi-causal condition that requires persistence and understanding to peel apart and treat the multiple factors that have caused its initiation. Multiple stressors occurring over a long period of time can cause FM, damaging the natural healing system of the body, which leads to chronic pain, fatigue, and loss of quality of life.

FIBROMYALGIA IS TREATABLE


Fibromyalgia is a potentially curable illness. It certainly responds to appropriate treatment in nearly all cases. It requires a person to take responsibility for their own healing and to seek the right professional help and therapies. While there is no magic bullet for FM, proper diagnosis and treatment of the underlying causes will result in remission of symptoms and the more devastating aspects of this illness. While total cure is not possible for every patient, many will find a transformation of their attitude towards their illness – from a curse to an incredible opportunity for growth and self-renewal. No small task, but this is what is required to heal.
