FIBROMYALGIA Natural Cures and Remedies

Fibromyalgia is a chronic neuropathic pain condition. Below we see natural

cures for treating fibromyalgia, its causes and current medical treatments.


                           WHAT is the FIBROMYALGIA

It’s present in 2-8% of the population. It affects more women than men

and often coexists with sleep problems and fatigue.

In fibromyalgia ther’s a lowered pain threshold due to a deficit of pain

defense systems. There is no poor ability to tolerate pain: in fact, who suffer

from it are sometimes accused of this. Subjects feel that the whole body is

sore. When the condition is severe they describe this pain as burning or as

bites that run throughout the body.

Pain can increase in a sitting position, and, since any pressure gets worse,

ther’s no position that is truly relieving. There are often diarrhea (ambient

temperature is always unpleasant, in particular cold is feared and sometimes

there is shivering). The functions of many viscera are perceived as unwelcome

(feeling of bladder fullness, swollen stomach, colitis, feeling of heart

“beating faster”, tingling at night in hands and arms). But such ailments

would graduallydisappear with a natural remedy for fibromyalgia.


             WHAT are the CAUSES of FIBROMYALGIA

Neuropeptides, such as substance P, stimulate mast cells to secrete

inflammatory cytokines and these cause symptoms of fibromyalgia.

There is also a serotonin deficiency. This alteration occurs in both

headache and other pains of primary fibromyalgia. Connection between

the aforementioned pathologies lies in the deficit of defense systems against

pain. In fact, there is a perception of not very painful stimuli (hyperalgesia)

or not painful ones, like stress or climatic variations (allodinìa).



Current drug therapy uses anticonvulsant, antidepressants, with poor

results and many side effects.



Therefore, natural treatments for fibromyalgia are possible thanks to

action of herbal products such as Rhodiola rosea and Vitis vinifera which

have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and collagen stabilizing properties.

   There are also other natural substances, like flavoproteins, NAD and

NADP. They contribute in a natural way to restore production of neural

transmitters by mast cells. In addition, all the aforesaid substances also

cause a natural increase in the serotonin level, rebalance the mast cells 

and, therefore, restore normal condition of the immune system. All this do

of a natural solution a possible and necessary curative option.
