how do i treat fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia, or Fibromyalgia Syndrome to give it its medical name, is a very common condition where an individual suffers from a tremendous amount of pain at specific points in the body. The individual may experiences sharp pulses of pain even at the slightest touch of the tender spots. The most common locations for people to suffer from the condition include the shoulders, arms, neck, pelvis and legs. Some of the more prominent causes of the condition include a significant lack of sleep, a high intake of unhealthy or excessively spicy food or even exposing your body to cold weather. In addition to the pain, the condition is also characterized by overwhelming fatigue in spite of long durations of sleep being taken along with swelling in the affected area, a chronic headache and very prominent and debilitating aches and stiffness at various parts of the body for months at a stretch. While the condition can affect men as well as women, it has been seen to have a higher likelihood of affecting a woman. Fibromyalgia affects about 4% of the population of the United States of America. Over the years, a number of people have turned to choosing their diet very carefully in helping overcome the condition. This method has shown positive results, which only serves to increase the credibility of a healthy and balanced diet.

Ginger is known to be extremely effective in alleviating the pain caused by the condition, while drinking a glass of water that has been mixed with a couple of teaspoons of turmeric powder should prove to be beneficial as well. You could also try mixing about four cups of Epsom salt in your warm bath water as this will soothe your aching muscles quite considerably. Make it a point to perform some deep breathing exercises over the course of the day as this will help you relax and help get rid of some amount of stress, which is known to be an aggravating factor in the occurrence of fibromyalgia. Lymph drainage can also be extremely beneficial as it will help in the detoxification of the muscles and the body tissues. With regards to your diet, you should try limiting your intake to vegetable soups and juices. Juices made from carrot, cucumber and beetroot are highly recommended. Coconut water and coconut milk will also help significantly while spices, apart from cumin, fennel and turmeric, should be avoided. Drink plenty of fluids in order to help detoxify the body.
