Before getting into the natural treatment of fibromyalgia, let’s have a quick look at what it is and some of the common symptoms. When you understand the signs and symptoms, you are in a better position to help yourself.
The name “fibromyalgia” means pain all over – an unenviable position to be in. Not surprisingly, you become exhausted and cannot think clearly. It becomes impossible to function properly.
To a large extend, your muscles cause the pain, as they become hard and knotted. They hurt on the most tender touch and the pain often radiates to other parts of the body. They may also cramp and twitch. Your skin may feel as if you have suffered a burn. In some ways, fibromyalgia can seem like a permanent dose of flu.
So let’s recap on the main symptoms, bearing in mind everyone is different:
- pain in the muscles anywhere
- stiffness, aching, cramps, weakness, muscle knots
- great fatigue
- difficulty sleeping
- difficulty thinking, like in a brain fog
- problems in digestive system
- headaches or migraines
- may have ear problems resulting in vertigo
- skin may itch or burn
The medical treatment of fibromyalgia is all about managing your symptoms rather than providing a cure. Mostly antidepressants medications are used to suppress the symptoms of your body. But drugs are often used to suppress the pain, such as analgaesics, anti-inflammatory drugs and nerve blockers.
None of these treatments are directed at the cause of the problem and they all come with side effects. The more you take them, the more chronic the side effects become. Your liver will suffer with toxicity and your immune system will be severely suppressed, leading to more health problems down the track.
The natural treatment of fibromyalgia, when using homeopathy, is totally different. A homeopathic consultation takes a considerable time to investigate the time when you first noticed the smallest hint or indication. This, coupled with your unique expression of the problem, leads a homeopath to select a particular remedy.
If this match is a good one, then the first signs you will find are the reduction in the pain. Along with this comes greater energy, better able to think clearly and your sleep improves. The relief can be enormous.
It may be necessary to make some adjustments along the way, but in time, for most fibromyalgia sufferers, it is possible to stop the remedy and remain well.
The treatment of fibromyalgia can be curative, depending of which health care system you choose.
