Fibromyalgia is caused initially by our cognitive errors, the changes are originated by our repeated thought patterns. These electrochemical activities of our nervous system produce certain behavior and lifestyle that is the source of the weakening (hypersensitivity) of our nervous system. The healing process is generated by reverting those distorted patterns and gradual introduction of positive life changes.
To relieve symptoms we can use non-medical intervention like a healthy fibromyalgia diet and supplements, chiropractic care, reducing stress, regular exercise, acupuncture and massage therapy.
- Regular Moderate Exercise: walking, swimming, biking, yoga and Pilates might be the last thing to consider when we are in pain but a study found that higher physical fitness levels are consistently associated with less severe symptoms in fibromyalgia patients.
- Yoga and Meditation: Multiple studies found that yoga sessions and meditation reduced pain, altered total cortisol levels in women with fibromyalgia and increased peace and joy.
- Acupuncture: over 2,500 years to relieve pain. A study has found that acupuncture is a proven, safe and effective treatment for the immediate reduction of pain in patients with fibromyalgia.
- Massage Therapy: reduces heart rate, relieves pain, improves range of motion, and lessens anxiety and depression. Recommended weekly.
- Manual Lymph Drainage Therapy: helps moves lymph fluid through the body eliminating toxins and waste relieving many of the symptoms in fibromyalgia patients.
- Essential Oils: Massage sore areas with a mixture of Helichrysum and coconut oil, it improves circulation, supports the healing of nerve tissue and decreases muscle pain. Lavender oil relieves emotional stress, improve sleep and reduce anxiety. Use it for massage oil mixtures and in a diffuser to improve the quality of sleep.
- Warm Baths: heat boosts the blood flow to areas of the body in pain, you may add a few drops of essential oils in the bathtub, showers and moist heating pads can help when in pain.
- Get Some Sun: Aim for a minimum of 10-20 minutes of sunshine (without sunscreen) each day to naturally increase vitamin D levels.
Health-care professionals recommend complementary treatments that include diet, lifestyle changes and natural supplements but the key is to find the right combination. That is where your personal effort and intelligence come into the equation of personal health. It is stated in an old proverb, “We are creators of our Heaven and Hell too!”
