Fibromyalgia Natural Treatments & Home Remedies
Diet fror Fibromyalgia
I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in September of 2001. I was told I needed to take a drug cocktail of anti-depressants and muscle relaxers and to join a support group. I tried the drugs and shortly decided I had to find another way out of this. Pain and disability became my constant companions. I had given a copy of the book “The McDougall Program – 12 Days to Dynamic Health” to my mother because she had atherosclerosis but it went unread and after some time she passed away. I rediscovered the book while cleaning out her things. I began reading the book and decided to give a change in diet a try. Fibromyalgia is one of many auto-immune diseases that can afflict the body. These auto-immune problems are most often caused by poor diet and most specifically eating animal proteins (meat and dairy). I looked up Dr. John McDougall on the internet and decided to attend one of his 10 day programs where they give talks and cook all of your food for you. On the eighth day I woke up at 5:30 AM and felt something was different. After a few minutes I realized I was pain free! My hands and feet were not swollen. I jumped out of bed and started poking myself and I said to my husband, “NO PAIN!” As of writing this one year later I am still pain free and still on the McDougall diet. To find out about this do a search for Dr. John McDougall MD fibromyalgia or go to www dot drmcdougall dot com. This is the very best natural treatment for fibromyalgia.

S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe) is a vital compound that is created naturally by the body. SAMe is imperative as it helps form cartilage, DNA (our genetic material), assists with the production and breakdown of neurotransmitters like dopamine, norepinephrine and seretonin, maintains cell membranes, and is needed for proper immune function. SAMe has been shown to help treat fibromyalgia naturally. An effective natural treatment for fibromyalgia, SAMe has been shown to show significant improvements in clinical disease activity, mood, morning stiffness, fatigue and pain.

Fibromyalgia Natural Treatment with Magnesium
A mineral that is found naturally in foods (namely whole grains, seeds, nuts and leafy green vegetables) that's needed for over 300 biochemical reactions is magnesium. When paired with malic acid (found in apples), it is essential in the production of energy in cells by forming adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This is especially beneficial to those suffering from fibromyalgia. If you aren't already getting magnesium from your diet, it may be wise to take a nutritional supplement as a natural home remedy for fibromyalgia.

While fibromyalgia itself is very painful, there are several people that suffer from similar aches and pains that (while severe) do not meet the traditional diagnostic criteria to be considered fibromyalgia. To treat fibromyalgia and this type of pain naturally, a great treatment is to increase one's intake of vitamin D. A German study of almost 1,000 showed a strong correlation between low levels of vitamin D and longer duration and higher rates of bone and muscle aches and pains.

5-hydroxytryptophan (more commonly referred to as 5-HTP) is a naturally occurring amino acid. It can be taken as a nutritional supplement to increase the levels of serotonin (a neurotransmitter) in the brain. This natural treatment is very beneficial to those suffering from fibromyalgia, as it may reduce trouble spots (or tender points) throughout the body. It is believed that 5-HTP is able to do this as it may effect the pain-modulating part of the brainstem.

It is important that your diet includes flax seed, either milled (3 or more tablespoons), or ingested as unrefined cold-pressed oil. Flaxseed contains linolenic acid. Linolenic acid is an essential omega-3 fatty acid that the body converts into prostaglandins. These prostaglandins aid in the reduction of inflammation throughout the body. This makes flaxseed and it's oil a very effective natural treatment for fibromyalgia. Omega-3 fatty acids can also be found in fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, halibut, cod and trout.
