Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition of pain in the muscles and soft tissue. Fibromyalgia mostly affects the muscles and their attachments. There are nine pairs of “Fibromyalgia test points”. At least 11 of the 18 specified tender points of Fibromyalgia must be tender to consider Fibromyalgia as a diagnosis. These areas are painful to the touch without signs of redness, swelling or heat in the surrounding joints or muscles.

Although in Western Medicine the cause is looked at as unknown, researchers link this condition to Fibromyalgia - Spartanburgparasitic infections, dental amalgam fillings, hormone imbalances, viral or parasitic infection, neurotransmitter imbalances, sleep problems, problems with the thalamus gland, and physical trauma. Here at the Natural Medicine Clinic in Spartanburg, we strive to identify the root cause(s) for your specific condition. Other factors that can play a role include chemical and food allergies and sensitivities, chronic stress, and dysfunctions in muscle metabolism. Breast implants can also contribute to Fibromyalgia because the materials implants contain weaken the body’s immune system. Fibromyalgia is also linked to a low pH in the body, a poor diet, mineral deficient, toxic intestines and a toxic liver.

Conventional medicine has achieved limited success in treating Fibromyalgia, and in many cases conventional physicians fail to detect it. Some patients have been told it is a physiological disorder of depression and it’s “all in their head” There is hope.

In Oriental medicine, the liver governs the muscles. Therefore, in muscle syndromes the liver is addressed. Liver detoxification and purification programs along with Acupressure are highly recommended in Fibromyalgia patients, and a good place to start.
