Fibromyalgia… The pain is real! Ask anyone who is living with the debilitating symptoms. Fibromyalgia is characterized by or referred to as a wide spread, total body pain, effecting the musculoskeletal and nervous system.
By definition, Fibromyalgia is an inflammation of the fascia of the muscle. Some literature refers this as “a wastepaper basket diagnosis” because many doctors will diagnose patients with Fibromyalgia because of their widespread chronicity of pain. Many doctors relate it to a trauma from an accident, injury or fall or emotional or mental stress. Research suggests that the pain associated with fibromyalgia is caused by a “glitch” in the way the body processes pain. This glitch results in a hypersensitivity to stimuli that normally are not painful.
Symptoms may include mild to severe muscle achiness, headache (migraines) joint pain or tenderness. There are 18 “Trigger Points” throughout the body, that can help a doctor to identify or diagnosis as Fibromyalgia. Brain fog, lack of concentration or cognitive issues, irritable bowel syndrome, cervical (neck) mid and lower pain and depression all have been associated with Fibromyalgia. The pain is persistent and REAL. And regardless of treatment, many patients have difficulty falling or staying asleep resulting in chronic fatigue.
Clinically, I have discovered five major causes of Fibromyalgia:
- Trauma that has gone undetected or untreated for a long time
- Exposure to toxins, either by inhaling or coming in contact with, which those toxins have settled in the fat cells of the body, producing pain, at a later stage in life
- Over consumption of sweets, carbohydrates, caffeine, or alcohol
- Chronic digestive inflammatory problem that has been left untreated
Nutritional and chiropractic care have consistently provided the most effective treatment for Fibromyalgia. Detoxification also offers the Fibromyalgia patient another form of effective alternative treatment, to void toxins from their system and helping them to restore functions.
As a professional, I have advanced training in the most effective non-invasive treatment of Fibromyalgia – Neurological Relief Center Technique, NRCT. This is an effective, painless form of treatment and the patient can see results in minutes.
This article will be followed by a success story of one of my patients who suffered with chronic Fibromyalgia for 35 years. I was able to successfully treat and manage her Fibromyalgia symptoms with NRCT. She will explain her journey of self-determination; how she beats the odds and returned to normal functions and a healthy, happy life.
