The name, Fibromyalgia, means pain in the muscles and the fibrous connective tissues (the ligaments and tendons).
Here’s the Shocker!
This “name or label – “Fibromyalgia” is only a symptom of this condition. Fibromyalgia IS NOT a muscle problem – it is a neurological problem and is due to parts of the brain malfunctioning (particularly the cortex, brain stem, and mid-brain), as all the latest research has shown (and there is a lot of it now). The muscle pain (myalgia) is only an effect – not a cause.
Let me explain….
You (or someone you know) may be experiencing moderate or severe fatigue with a lack of energy, decreased exercise endurance, or the kind of exhaustion that results from the flu or lack of sleep/insomnia. Sometimes the fatigue is more of a problem than the pain. Headaches, especially tension and migraine headaches, are common in Fibromyalgia. Abdominal pain/digestive problems, bloating, alternating constipation/diarrhea, bladder spasms, and irritability may cause urinary urgency or frequency. Your skin and blood circulation can be sensitive to temperature changes, resulting in temporary changes in skin color.
Nausea, dizziness, inability to put thoughts into words, “foggy” feeling in head/slow mental reactions, sensitivity to sound and light, fast heart rate or heart “skips a beat”, loss of strength and coordination, and on, and on.
And If You’ve Been Suffering…
With any of the above symptoms for a few months, a few years, or too many years to mention? Some may suffer only minor symptoms, while others (perhaps you or a loved one) feel the debilitating affects of Fibromyalgia and are kept from participating in their life, their family, or even the ability to hold a job, making even simple daily activities almost impossible.
Fibromyalgia is a neurological problem and if you want to get better you need to understand a little about the brain.
Fuel and Activation Are Two Things Your Brain Need to not only Survive but Thrive.
Fuel… your Brain needs fuel in the form of oxygen and Glucose
Activation… your Brain needs proper stimulation
Now fibromyalgia sufferers not only have the above neurological/brain problems, they also usually have Metabolic Imbalances which include:
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Food sensitivities
- Blood sugar problems
- Infections: bacterial, yeast, or viral or Parasite
- Severe hormone imbalances
You will not find a fibromyalgia program around that addresses all of these components. This is the Big Picture, this is our Neuro Metabolic Program.
All of these issues must be checked and addressed at the same time ALONG WITH the neurological issues, or any treatment will FAIL!
Have your past treatment failed? If so, you now know why! the “Big picture” was not addressed. Learn more about the “Big picture” and our Neuro Metabolic Program here.
Imagine how different your life would be if you were free from the burdens that your Fibromyalgia causes you.
