Fibromyalgia is a condition that many people in our society suffer from. Most who are diagnosed with this ailment are women. I feel like, a lot of times, it is over-diagnosed or a mis-diagnosis. Fibromyalgia is a true condition, though, that needs a true solution. You can ask anyone with fibromyalgia, and they will tell you it’s not enjoyable. Let’s go through a few things to help naturally with this condition.
The first thing is to always make sure your brain is connecting well to your body. Your organs, muscles, cells and tissues rely on the brain communicating down the spinal cord and out the body over the nerves. This connection, through stress, can become blocked by the bones of the spine shifting out of place. The brain to body connection is very important to fibromyalgia and overall health.
Your adrenal glands are another important area that you want to be functioning optimally. The adrenal glands help make natural cortisone to help naturally take away pain and inflammation. These glands can malfunction by too much stress or sugar. Reducing stress and sugar intake will help your body deal with negative effects of fibromyalgia.
Another area to be aware of is your citrus fruit intake. Citrus can cause fibromyalgia-type pain. Oranges, grapes, tangerines, etc. make your body overly alkaline. When your body is alkaline, it’s prone to pain syndromes. When your body is acidic, it’s prone to be in a cancerous state. The goal is to get a good balance of the pH of your body. When your body is slightly alkaline, it helps create an environment that naturally helps with fibromyalgia.
The final area I want you to examine is your hormones. As a result of our environment and surroundings, we are an estrogen-driven society. When estrogen is high, progesterone is low. Progesterone helps in the making of cortisone for your adrenal glands to fight off pain and inflammation, so you don’t want it to be low. Your thyroid gland is also affected by off-balance hormones, and this may cause the liver to be deficient in B vitamins. It’s extremely important to have your hormones in balance.
