Fibromyalgia is widespread muscle pain with no specific cause. It is a syndrome that includes long-term body-wide pain in the muscles and the connective tissues. It may be accompanied by fatigue, headaches, difficulty sleeping, anxiety and depression. Females ages 20-50 are most likely to suffer from fibromyalgia. Potential causes of fibromyalgia can be food allergies, toxicity, viral infection, hormone imbalance, spinal misalignments, stress.
Food allergies can be tested and changes in diet can help significantly. Even some foods that are considered healthy can be problematic for some individuals. At Hansen Health Solutions, we do food sensitivity testing and always recommend that anyone with fibromyalgia immediately eliminate gluten, sugar, alcohol, caffeine, processed foods, food additives, dairy, shellfish, and peanuts. Supplementation-wise, magnesium, vitamin D, and fish oil are helpful to the person afflicted with fibromyalgia. These are all good starting points, but it’s always best to test and know for certain, rather than take even an educated guess. In our clinic, we do custom nutritional testing in order to know precisely what your unique individual needs are. This helps us to ensure the fastest and most direct route to a solution.
We are surrounded by various toxins on a regular basis and there’s no easy way to check them all and at what level of exposure we have had. It is vital to support detoxification organs and pathways in the body and have professional help in evaluating your health history to know which potential toxins might need to be tested.
Fibromyalgia can also be linked to viral infections. Everyone has some level of viral infection load at any given time, some with more than others. People with fibromyalgia tend to have a high viral burden in the body. One of the unique ways that we help people eliminate a heavy viral load is through ultraviolet blood irradiation and ozone therapy.
Many people understand how difficult it is to live with hormone imbalances, but many don’t know that fibromyalgia can be part of that experience. Unfortunately, the vast majority of general medical practitioners do not perform adequate hormone testing and are not keeping up with the latest approaches to optimizing hormones. Resolving fibromyalgia can be as simple as doing the appropriate hormone testing.
The spine surrounds and protects the spinal cord and nerves of the central nervous system. Misalignments stress, strain and impinge the nerves, resulting in chronic pain. In our facility, we have seen multiple patients receive benefit from correcting the structure of the spine through corrective chiropractic treatments.
Alleviating stress is easier said than done. Consider meditation, breathing techniques, quality of sleep and improving relationships with those in your community of friends and family.
