What is Fibromyalgia?
According to the American College of Rheumatology, fibromyalgia is characterized by multiple painful areas of the body on both sides of the body, fatigue, poor sleep, difficulty thinking or concentrating. Symptoms are present for 3 or more months with no apparent cause of the symptoms. It may also involve symptoms such as digestive issues, depression, anxiety, sensitivity to cold, dry mouth, nose, eyes.
Treatment. According to the standard medical system, there is no cure for this chronic disease but there are various drugs to control some of the symptoms but not all. The difference between arthritis and fibromyalgia is that arthritis affects the joints and is characterized by inflammation, whereas fibromyalgia affects muscle and soft tissue. Inflammatory markers may be absent in fibromyalgia.
According to the CDC, 25% of people with fibromyalgia also have autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, 90 % have depression and sleep disorders and 70% have irritable bowel syndrome.
Holistic Approach to disease management is to identify and eliminate the root cause of chronic diseases provide nutritional support for affected organs in order to reverse the condition. We look at the body as a whole rather than individual parts. Your body has the potential to heal itself. You only have to do two things.
- Remove the barriers to healing such as foods that are toxic to your body, chemical and heavy metal toxins, parasites, bacteria, fungus, viruses and other factors that suppress our immune system.
- Take nutrients that support the healing of your body.
Everyone is different and the root cause may be different for different people. Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive program that uses muscle testing to identify the root cause of most chronic health conditions including fibromyalgia, and the specific nutrients and nutritional supplements that can reverse the condition.
