Prevention from Fibromyalgia

You can prevent fibromyalgia by making long-term changes to your lifestyle:

  • Eliminate all processed food from your diet including items made of flour and refined sugar.
  • Include whole grains, fresh vegetables and soy-based products.
  • Do not drink carbonated drinks, as they are bad for the spleen and kidneys.
  • Incorporate some form of cardiovascular exercise into your daily routine such as walking, swimming, yoga, and stretching.
  • Chinese massage or acupressure may help improve blood circulation
