The symptoms of fibromyalgia are characterized by aching pain and stiffness in the fibrous tissues of the neck, shoulders, chest, hips, knees and elbows. Surprisingly enough, this pain is generally more pronounced early in the morning and when a person is trying to relax.
Other fibromyalgia symptoms include extreme fatigue, numbness and tingling of hands and feet, difficulty sleeping, irritable bowel, menstrual cramps, dizziness, headaches and depression.
But natural fibromyalgia relief is possible! There are natural remedies for fibromyalgia without resorting to controversial painkillers or other medications with a history of serious side effects.
What is Fibromyalgia?
While fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is neither fatal nor the cause of permanent damage, it can be so debilitating that fibromyalgia sufferers are often seriously effected in their life and work.
In one study, about 25% of the women who were diagnosed with fibromyalgia were unable to go to work and many others found that fibromyalgia symptoms seriously affected their work performance. This inability to function also had a profound effect on their family and social life.
Virtually unheard of a few decades ago, FMS has continuously baffled the medical community.
Researchers are unable to find either a definitive cause or an effective medical therapy. And many doctors are under the mistaken impression that Fibromyalgia is psychosomatic and nothing can be done about it. Many patients are told they just have to live with the pain.
But here's good news! Fibromyalgia symptom sufferers don't have to grin and bear it.
Natural remedies for fibromyalgia, like massage and chiropractic, plus healthy lifestyle changes, like moderate exercise, meditation, breathing reeducation and other relaxation techniques, have been found to both help prevent and offer relief to those experiencing fibromyalgia symptoms.
Healthy Fibromyalgia Diet
Eating a much healthier diet also helps. The National Fibromyalgia Research Foundation has found that most symptoms of fibromyalgia can be alleviated when unhealthy foods like
- red meat,
- fried foods,
- and bad fats
And omega 3 fish oil supplements have also been found to be a natural remedy for both the inflammatory pain and depression associated with FMS. Fish oil is a natural anti-inflammatory and often produces much better results than commonly prescribed anti-inflammatory drugs.
For more detailed information on how omega 3 fish oil can help you, your family and your friends to prevent and relieve fibromyalgia symptoms, so you can look and feel your absolute best, check out my highest recommendation for fish oil at the omega 3 fish oil website.
