Fibromyalgia is a chronic neuropathic pain condition. Below we see natural cures for treating fibromyalgia, its causes and current medical treatments.

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 is pejorative, 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 gradually disappear with a natural cure for 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, such as 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 natural substances, such as flavoproteins, NAD and NADP. They contribute in a natural way to restore production of neural transmitters by mast cells. In addition, all substances and aforesaid products also cause a natural increase in serotonin level and restore mast cell membranes. Hence, a natural cure for fibromyalgia is a possible and necessary treatment option.
