Fibromyalgia represents a cellular energy crisis with many causes. Treatments that increase energy production can often be helpful. This includes the “SHINE” protocol (Sleep, Hormones, Infections, Nutrition, and Exercise), which was shown to be highly effective in an earlier RCT. A soon to be published multicenter study showed that D-ribose supplementation (Corvalen) increased energy an average of 61% at three weeks, while also improving sleep, cognitive function, pain, and overall well-being.

Fibromyalgia is a complex disorder characterized by fatigue, widespread pain, abnormal pain processing, sleep disturbance, and cognitive impairment.1 Diagnosis is made by exam and history, with 11/18 tender points positive, and is based on the new criteria developed in 2010 by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR). This consists of the Widespread Pain Index (score >7), a Symptom Severity Scale (score ≥5), the presence of symptoms for at least 3 months, and no comorbidity that would explain the pain.2(more…)
A clinical trial published in January 2012 in Rheumatology International reports that magnesium supplementation reduces symptoms of fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain and tenderness in the muscles and soft tissues and is associated with fatigue, depression, anxiety and sleep disturbances. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state that over five million American adults are affected by fibromyalgia. (more…)
Fibromyalgia causes symptoms that include aching muscles, tender skin, fatigue, flu-like symptoms and mental fogginess that leaves sufferers unable to function normally in everyday life. Fortunately, for those who don’t want to resort to experimenting with medication to find a solution, there are a few natural remedies and lifestyle changes that may offer relief to fibromyalgia sufferers.
According to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, about five million Americansaged 18 or older are affected by fibromyalgia. For many, symptoms come and go, making diagnosis difficult and finding an effective treatment option complicated. Because it isn’t a disease with easy-to-identify symptoms and a single effective treatment method, coping with fibromyalgia can be challenging. (more…)
Want a shock? Go get tested for heavy metals. Your jaw will drop when you see the results.
I know, because I see the reactions in my own clinic every single day.
The reality is, nearly everyone has way too much lead, mercury, arsenic, and other toxic heavy metals inside them — and these metals are a major cause of supposedly incurable conditions.
I say “supposedly” because I often can cure or improve them, and I’ll tell you everything you need to know to get started on your own cure in a moment.
First, a new study confirms the role of toxic heavy metals in autoimmune disease — especially among women battling disorders such as thyroid disease, MS, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, and lupus. (more…)
Fibromyalgia is a chronic inflammatory condition consisting of muscular and joint pain and fatigue. Three to five percent of the population suffers with this condition with over 80% being women. This is one of the fastest growing disabling conditions in the US. Beat fibromyalgia now with natural lifestyle strategies.
Fibromyalgia is classically diagnosed with positive reaction to 11 of 18 specific tender point sites on the body. Other classic findings include chronic fatigue, sleep challenges, normal blood tests, and a history of widespread pain particularly in the neck and back. This is believed to be a chronic inflammatory condition of the muscle fascia. (more…)
Magnesium, the fourth most abundant mineral in the body, plays a crucial role in activating over 300 chemical responses. It is responsible for the proper formation of bones, maintaining normal muscle function, regulating body temperature, and proper absorption of calcium. Increasingly, medical science is coming to believe that magnesium and other minerals missing from today’s diet might prevent cognitive disorders such as ADD, ADHD and bipolar disorder, as well as help prevent Alzheimer’s and mental decline as we age.

Aging appears to begin between the ages of 27 and 35 when the production of enzymes that dissolve protein begins to diminish. Enzymes are widely recognized for their importance in digesting food. They also break up circulating immune complexes in the blood. Enzymes can act to prevent too much fibrin from being deposited in wounds, fractures and joints. These enzymes also remove necrotic debris and excess fibrin from the blood stream. Immune system regulation can also be accomplished with enzymes. Most of the development of systemic enzyme therapy was carried out in the Far East and Europe. Enzyme therapy is a prime example of a situation in which US medicine is missing the boat due to a lack o of awareness of what the rest of the world is doing and our unwillingness to use therapies not made by “big pharma.” Enzymes can not be patented so they are of little interest to drug companies.
