NATURAL REMEDIES TO TREAT FIBROMYALGIA

Fibromyalgia, also known as fibrositis or fibromyositis, is a chronic disease characterized by widespread pain. It is much more common in women than in men. The exact cause of fibromyalgia is not yet clear.

Possible causes and risk factors are genetics, hormonal disorders, trauma to the brain or spinal cord, surgery, rheumatic diseases, viral infections, disturbed sleep patterns, poor physical condition, and stress. Researchers believe it could result from a combination of physical and emotional stressors.

Fibromyalgia symptoms include debilitating muscle pain; numbness or tingling; sensitivity to noise, smells, bright lights, stiff joints (especially in the morning); and fatigue.
People with this condition also tend to have migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, temporomandibular joint (TMJ), sleep disorders, anxiety, and depression. However, the experts at the Center for Phytotherapy (Mes Plantes) have a natural treatment based on medicinal plants to permanently cure fibromyalgia. Click on the image below to discover this natural treatment.

NATURAL TREATMENT AGAINST FIBROMYALGIA

Here are the best natural remedies for fibromyalgia.

Yoga and meditation

Yoga and Meditation Music Can Relax Your Body, Mind, and Spirit - Tassieff

 

Relaxation techniques, such as yoga, tai chi, meditation, and deep breathing, can go a long way in managing fibromyalgia symptoms.
According to a 2010 study by researchers at Oregon Health & Science University, yoga can help combat fibromyalgia symptoms, such as pain, stiffness, fatigue, sleep disturbances, poor memory, anxiety, depression, and imbalance.
In 2011, Canadian researchers from the University of York found that 75 minutes of yoga class twice a week for eight weeks helped increase cortisol levels in female participants with fibromyalgia, thereby reducing pain. Those who suffer from fibromyalgia tend to have lower levels of cortisol than normal.
- Practice yoga for 20 to 40 minutes a day.
- Join a tai chi class.
- Meditate for 20 to 30 minutes a day.
- Deep relaxation techniques such as progressive muscle relaxation and guided imagery can also help.

Exercise

Physical exercise 1

Participating in a long-term exercise program has been shown to be effective in reducing fibromyalgia symptoms. It prevents muscle atrophy and restores the body's neurochemical balance, increasing levels of pain-fighting chemicals called endorphins. It also triggers a positive emotional state and reduces stress.
- Start with about 20 minutes of low impact exercise 3 times a week, then increase the duration and frequency. These can include walking, seated exercises, strength training, flexibility exercises, balance exercises, and water aerobics.
- It is suggested to start with light exercises and go slowly. For example, you can start with some regular stretching and activities, like climbing stairs, gardening, or doing housework, and gradually move on to regular exercise.
Keep in mind that while pain and fatigue can make exercise difficult, it is imperative to be physically active.

Epsom salt

- Perform up to 3 times a week.

Acupressure and acupuncture

Natural acupuncture 1

Acupressure and acupuncture help manage fibromyalgia symptoms by restoring the levels of vital energy that travel through energy pathways in the body and change the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain and spinal cord. In addition to pain relief, these therapies also induce relaxation and reduce anxiety.

- Ask your doctor, neurologist or physical therapist to suggest a qualified acupuncturist or acupressurist who can select the appropriate acupuncture points for your treatment based on your symptoms and qi energy.

Massages

Massage

Massage therapy relaxes the muscles and improves the range of motion of the joints. It also relieves stress and stimulates the production of chemicals that act as the body's natural pain relievers.
