What is Fibromyalgia?
Is it a virus? Is it an infection? No, it’s a plane! Seriously. In fact, no one is certain for sure. It’s a condition for which there is no cure yet, and of which there is no known cause. Recurrent identifiable symptoms include overall muscle pain, tendons, ligaments, and tender points, often multiple. Other common symptoms will be: sleep disorders, headaches, depression, IBS (intestinal bowel syndrome), arthritis, post-traumatic stress disorder, lupus and chronic fatigue. In general, middle age women are mostly afflicted by the condition, and is seems to occur after emotional or physical trauma. Nevertheless, we have yet to unveil the triggering event.

Diet, exercise and counselling all impact one’s psychological and physical self so as to better one’s condition. Some patients, who are told by their doctors to eliminate the intake of sugar, caffeine, alcohol, fried and processed foods, and red meat, have prescribed mineral supplementation treatments instead. Playing an essential part in the immune system’s efficacy, probiotics balance the intestinal tract by aiding the digestion system give the body the important vitamins and minerals it requires.
