Fibromyalgia

From the research I have done plus the observations over 17 years, I have discovered that there are many things that can cause  fibromyalgia-type muscle pain.  Viruses, Lyme’s Disease, Leaky Gut from food allergies/sensitivities, Overgrowth of Yeast (Candida albicans), Stress, Glandular Imbalances, Heavy Metals etc.

There are other common findings amongst fibromyalgia patients.  One is they all have low functioning adrenal glands, the other is they have low functioning thyroid glands, their bowels do not move regularly (after each meal), and a more recent discovery is that they do not digest their fats well.  When this happens the residue of the undigested fats causes the yeast to grow & other bad bacteria which causes bloating, gas, diarrhea & constipation, low back discomfort or pain, general lethargy, foggy thinking, food cravings especially for refined carbohydrates, & depression.

The first line of action in any chronic illness is the diet.   The fats that  are not digesting well will have to be removed from their diet.  (It is individual, and I check each person separately to see what fats they need to avoid.)  Also, in conjunction with colon hydrotherapy (colonics), they will need to do a Gallbladder/Liver flush at some point to remove the gallstones that are impeding their fat digestion.  I always recommend that a Gallbladder/Liver flush is done within 48 hours of a colonic so that there is room in the large intestine for all that stuff to dump out of the Gallbladder & Liver.

Poor digestion of fats due to lack of bile flow will cause poor elimination which in turn will create low energy and more muscle pain.  (The muscle pain in fibromyalgia actually corresponds to the gallbladder meridian interestingly.)  A series of 6 t0 12 , colonics will aid the release of this toxicity and speed up recovery.

These  offending foods will keep perpetuating the problem if they are not removed from their diet. Often wheat is an issue and sometimes the whole “gluten” family.  I check everyone individually for the foods that they need to omit from their diet.  I will also check for glandular imbalances like adrenals & thyroid and any other organ imbalances that can be corrected through herbs or homeopathy.

When there are viruses involved there are a number of therapies a person may need especially if it is Lyme’s Disease.  But even certain viruses can be difficult to get rid of. Usually it takes a mixture of herbs to solve the viral issue and particularly by building up the gut with probiotics and fermented foods.  This is very important.  For this is the place where the immune system is founded.  Antibiotics taken directly or even residue in foods will go against your gut and cause you to perpetuate a poor immune function.

In short, Fibromyalgia is from stress, food sensitivities, & poor immune function not being addressed at the root cause.  Then other insults to the immune system take place like antibiotics in particular which just compounds the problem.  The cure is in the diet (talked about above), using herbs & homeopathy to address some of the immune problems & digestive problems, fermented foods & probiotics to increase the gut response, acupuncture to rebalance the organs,

All chronic illnesses is a whole body experience and the whole must be addressed in order for the body to cure itself.
