Are You Suffering from Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is one of the most misdiagnosed, misunderstood and mistreated conditions in health care today. Have you been told that it is a muscle or myofascial problem, or have been made to feel that it’s somehow your fault, or that you are making up your symptoms? You are not alone.
Fibromyalgia is a degenerative disease that affects approximately 3.7 million Americans according to statistics (National Women’s Health Center). Of this number over 90% of the sufferers of fibromyalgia are women. People who suffer with fibromyalgia experience a chronic burning, shooting, throbbing, and stabbing pain that at times can become quite excruciating.
I promise I will not brush you off.
We have a unique treatment for fibromyalgia.
You see, fibromyalgia is a neurological problem. Over the past ten years, hundreds if not thousands of studies have been published showing that fibromyalgia is a problem with malfunctioning parts of the brain. It’s not that your doctor didn’t mean well, but unless they have researched and studied fibromyalgia in detail, they don’t understand why you have symptoms like fatigue, insomnia, irritable bowl syndrome, fast heartbeat, depression and problems with your memory. Because your doctor doesn’t understand the cause of fibromyalgia they also don’t know how to treat you without giving you a medication that only attempts to cover up your symptoms, and fails to treat the cause of your problems. Unfortunately, the result of not getting the care you need, means you end up suffering with a treatable condition, that ruins your quality of life.
Before I studied fibromyalgia in detail, I didn’t realize that in addition to treating you neurologically, we also had to treat you metabolically. In addition to having a neurological problem, fibromyalgia sufferers often have hormone imbalances, food allergies, gut infections (yeast, fungus, viral and bacterial), problems regulating blood sugar or your thyroid and nutritional deficiencies.

You see, if you are not treated neurologically and metabolically, the treatment will NOT work. This is why antidepressants, and antiseziure medications don’t get you better, and at best only give you temporary relief. Many health care professionals prescribe anti-depressant or mood altering medications. These treatments temporarily mask the symptoms of Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Unrelenting Fatigue; they do not lead to a long-term solution. If you really want to be better, you have to treat the cause of your problem.
