Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain lasting at least three months. There can be headaches involved, fatigue tiredness, feeling worn out, and of course aches and pains all over the body. What I have found and what we have had good results with, in my office, is when we address the underlying nutritional issues we can get rid of fibromyalgia.
Some reasons for fibromyalgia are:
We are filled up with toxins in our bodies, especially heavy metals. We collect these heavy metals throughout our life and they will accumulate. They attach to the cells of the muscle and they can cause a lot of what appears to be fibromyalgia. Not only are we filled with metals but also chemicals. There are 2,000 new chemicals made every year in the United States and unfortunately, they don’t do a lot of testing on them. By not fully testing them we do not know how they affect people or how they affect our environment.
There have been studies on newborn babies who have been born stillborn and they’re finding 232 different toxins in their bodies upon birth. These chemicals and metals get into the tissue and they mimic or cause fibromyalgia.
Insulin resistance is becoming a big problem due to our food supply. If you are eating a Standard American diet you may be having a problem with insulin resistance. A change in your diet can be beneficial; try cutting your carbs down.
This is a hormone not just in men but also in women. If you have had a hormone test and you have low testosterone you have fibromyalgia, the low testosterone could be an underlying factor.
Low Vitamin D or Gallbladder:
This could be the cause if you’re experiencing most of the symptoms on the right side of your body. With the gallbladder, a couple of things will happen. The gallbladder is a sac that can get filled up with toxins and chemicals. It also holds the body’s bile salts. Bile salts are made in the liver and held in the gallbladder. When food goes through the gallbladder, the gallbladder contracts and puts the bile salts into the food to break down the fats. But that bile salt itself can get thick or of poor quality.
Magnesium, Calcium, and Potassium are the three major ones that can cause some big problems with muscles.
