What Is Fibromyalgia?
You may have gone through many years and many diagnoses from GPs and specialists, until they finally worked out your condition. It can be frustrating!
In essence, fibromyalgia is a neurological (affecting the nerves) condition. Pains are mostly in the muscles and joints. However, headaches can be common as can abdominal pain, especially in the digestive track. The renal system can also be affected, with increased urination and cystitis. Your skin can become really sensitive to touch.
Pain is often intense enough to badly affect your day. Pains can come and go. They can change over time.
The best the medical profession has to offer is pain management. Many try surgery to cut the nerves or to block them. This is really going in the wrong direction as it is not supportive of the body naturally healing itself. Instead, it’s suppressing it. Which often ends up badly, with the condition getting worse, or more serious complications appearing.
You can’t ever get away with suppressing the body’s natural ability to heal itself. And that may well have been the reason you have arrived in this unenviable position.
Many people will know the trigger that tipped them into a serious condition. Although this may have been ‘the straw that broke the camel’s back’, it can still be one of the many important areas to put right.
In reality, every single health condition is a deviation away from naturally good health, so drugs and surgery can never heal, in the long term and frequently not in the short term.
Supportive Measures to Take To Support Your Body
Understanding fibromyalgia starts with getting some basic, core values right.
It’s always critical to get your diet right. Not only is the typical western diet non-nutritious, it will harm you, You know you can’t run a car on the wrong fuel, yet many people think their body can run on the wrong ‘fuel’. It can’t. But it will take time before you realise this, as the body is always trying desperately to remain healthy and vital.
Add junk food into the mix and your health will deteriorate much faster.
Brenda Davis is probably the only dietician worth following. Most are still in the dark ages, the bad old days. She is living proof her way works. It’s also easy, inexpensive, nutritious and delicious.
This alone may make a huge difference to your pain, as now you are giving your body the right ‘fuel’ to heal itself.
Getting outside, especially in Nature and in the sun, to exercise regularly is another one of the easy, and free, ways to support your body’s natural ability to heal itself. It doesn’t have to be highly energetic. Whatever you can manage is fine. But it should be enjoyable, otherwise you won’t do it regularly and consistently. Walking, especially with a much loved dog, has a purpose.
Doing what you love is not something everyone aspires to. Often it’s just a job to pay the bills. This is unfulfilling and can be soul destroying. Working out what else you can do may take time, but you can start thinking about it now. Work takes up a lot of your day and it needs to be satisfying, worthwhile and above all, something you enjoy.
Stress is a large factor in most people’s lives. It can come from work, but also from a lack of time from juggling work and family. Paramedics will tell you that overactive hearts from stress is very common. Back away from those pressures. Make time. Meditation is an excellent way to reduce stress, so that life runs much more smoothly.
Perhaps one of the most important triggers that leads to poor health are medical drugs and vaccines. They all suppress the body’s natural ability, and strong desire, to heal itself. Not everyone is affected the same way by these measures, which is why there are so many variations. The sensitive people are much more affected.
Natural solutions for fibromyalgia includes the use of good homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy works by supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. This is not necessarily a fast solution. Many consultations are likely to be needed. But after each one, you will normally find big improvements.
Understanding fibromyalgia is a bit like understanding life. It’s a big effort and a big task. It can be scary to contemplate many changes. But as Einstein is famous for saying “a problem cannot be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
