Hello my friend!
My name is Jennifer and I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia for 21 years now. I created this website www.naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com to help as many people as I can. People like you, who suffers with unexplainable pain that just won’t go away. This is a quick about me page to explain how I came about this journey and why I can help.
I have been through many drug therapies, doctors and specialists all of which have had a different opinion, diagnosis or treatment, none of whom had any real answers or relief, just another pill to try.
I experienced so many side effects and drug reactions, one of which gave me anaphylaxis shock and shut my body down for months and left me extremely ill for over 8 months (Lupron). I am lucky to be alive. See (http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/583). That was a living hell! I don’t recall any prescription really helping or giving me any real relief, only more symptoms, and chronic pain in my gut.
I have experience a lot of unbearable pain and fatigue that has traveled through my joints, muscles and organs year after year. I couldn’t understand why they can’t figure out it out but now I do .
All those years I was looking for a cure, so I could get on with my life. Then I realized there wasn’t a cure in traditional medicine. They only treat with medication, radiate, chemo or surgically remove it once it has become diseased. That is why I felt I had to find the answers myself outside of our medical system.They took my tonsils when I was about 8, they took my ovary when I was about 18, I don’t want to lose anything else.
Now I know there is a place for medicine and I have no qualms about that when it is needed. It is becoming overwhelming. It is the over prescribing, the addictions, the deaths, the suicides, the side effects, the street sales of prescription drugs and the greed of the drug makers that bothers me. Also how quick they are to hand out the prescriptions especially targeting children nowadays rather than educating about life style and diet changes first.There are many things that effect our health that we aren’t aware of such as chemicals in food and health care products.
I’d bet money that a lot of ADD and ADHD children eat a lot of nutritionally depleted foods, dyes, sugar, chemicals and preservatives in foods, personal care products, over the counter drugs and prescribed drugs. A lot of children don’t see proper nutrition, drink enough water or perhaps some of them don’t have enough love, or support.
I so feel for those children who are then put on Ritalin or some other toxic drug in the same drug class as cocaine. I just want to feed them some healthy food and give them a big hug. I am afraid for them. I’ve read many studies that followed those children who took Ritalin into adulthood and most of them turned to heavy street drugs, cocaine or heroin.
~~~~~So big hugs to all you kids on those chemical drugs! I wish I could help. Some friendly advice, eat healthy, find a friend you can count on, talk to someone, drink plenty of water, get lots of fresh air, exercise and get enough sleep.~~~~~~
Here is an article that could perhaps support my theory? A study showing that diet may be more helpful for ADHD kids than drugs.
Ritalin ADHD Drug Linked to 500 Percent
Increased Risk of Sudden Death in Children
My main frustration is that our only choice is to take these toxic drugs that can cause addiction, symptoms or damage to our organs yet no promise of curing anything. I touched above on children because it devastates me to see them in that state. I know how some of the prescriptions made me feel, I can imagine in a 50 lb body it could be extremely powerful and overwhelming.They might not know that some symptoms they are feeling could be from the drug they were given, I certainly didn’t when I was a kid.
We need to realize that prescriptions are a passive income for some extremely powerful pharma giant. They don’t have your best interest at heart. Why wouldn’t they want us all on a recurring script or two or three?We need to start questioning if the prescription is needed or if there is another way. What are the side effects, how long will you be on it, will it fix the problem or just mask the pain? Are there any chance of suicidal thoughts with this drug? Depression, stomach problems, liver damage, kidney damage? Do you see the drug commercials with the side effect warnings? Scary! Some are worse than the original symptoms.
I want to live until I die! The medical system was failing me. I was a mere shadow of the person I was, so I am learning a new way for myself and you are welcome to join. The world of herbs, vitamins and minerals, exercise, meditation, natural healing and alternative medicine, and wow, there is hope after all!
Natural medicines work on replenishing and supporting our bodies so they will heal themselves. Quite frankly, I am totally exhausted from all the drug therapies and tests that have led to disappointment and more misery for me personally. The desperation of thinking that this is going to end the pain or “fix” everything. I have learned more self educating myself.
What I have found is once you have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, it seems to be a catch all for what ever symptom you have. It got to the point, my doctor wouldn’t check me for anything, every symptom or complaint I had, his answer was, “It’s the Fibromyalgia.” I am actually sick of hearing the name Fibromyalgia because it has such a stigma attached to it.
I had pain everywhere inside and out, unbearable fatigue, unwell feeling like something was sucking the life out of me. I couldn’t get any help and I knew something was terribly wrong. I had went through family deaths and family trauma that was severely stressful. No one really had any answers for me other than, “it’s Fibromyalgia, here take these pills”. They weren’t working, only making me sicker and. I had to go to the alternative health care. Since then I have discovered a lot. My gynecologist, Dr Pettle found my adrenals were close to shutting down, low thyroid, low iron & no progesterone, things my doctors failed to find that really make a difference to your well being.
I started natural medications for the adrenals, thyroid & progesterone and they are helping a lot. It is a prescription drug from the pharmacy but because they are natural ingredients drug plans won’t cover them. My question is why don’t we have health plans rather than drug plans? Prescriptions for natural things that make and keep us healthy?
I really can’t afford them on my own but they are the difference between my well being. It doesn’t make sense to me why we aren’t looking for what works, not what makes a drug company rich. If it is the difference of millions of people feeling well then why aren’t we using it?
I am only allowed coverage for the drugs that make me sick. They paid 1400.00 for half the prescription of Lupron that put me in anaphylactic shock and shut my body down but won’t cover my progesterone, thyroid medicine or DHEA that helps me feel alive because it is a natural substances made from the earth and not made in a lab from chemicals. Where is the justice?
I started getting enough energy to start exercising again and implementing one natural thing I have studied in the past 20 years at a time. I started going to a Chiropractor for the pain in my back, hip and neck and that has made a major difference in my life. To finally get some relief now and again is a nice feeling.
I have come further in the past two years on my own than I have in the past 18 years with the medical system. Of course with help from my gynecologist Dr Pettle who practices natural medicine and chiropractic work. I am not cured yet but I am seeing changes everyday that are making a difference. Dr Pettle has many books out I recommend reading, he is right here from Ontario, Canada and highly recognized for his great work.
Join me in my journey to finding answers to your Fibromyalgia pain and fatigue. I am not satisfied with the band-aid effect and neither should you. I think that from balancing the body, mind, spirit and soul, we will find Natural pain relief that works. The medical system treats the body like a car, treating each body organ like a separate car part, each symptom with a different pill. I was needing pills to cover the damage the other pills were causing.
I have found many Natural therapies, supplements, foods, exercises and stretches that have helped tremendously that I am putting together into an eBook. I have found different remedies from all over the world that can help with some pain relief in your life. I can save you years of research especially if you are newly diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and are in that deep dark hole I remember oh so well. I love to do research and I have so much information I need to share, as pain permits me to work on it. My computer died on me and I had to start all over so it is taking longer than expected.
Doesn’t it make more sense to get advice from someone who has shared the pain and desperation you have been through rather than some exercise expert or salesperson who doesn’t really understand but have all have the “advice and answers” for you? Do this, try that. Or another doctor with another pill to try or telling you, “You just need to exercise!” UUUGGGGGGHHH! How humiliating! They just don’t get it do they? Well my friend, I do!
Does feeling like a Mac truck ran over you or feeling like you have been beaten with a baseball bat sound familiar? Are you ready to find what really helps? Please feel free to leave your comments or questions. All Fibromyalgia sisters welcome and of course those bros that suffer too! I hear you sister and I am listening!
Anyone with chronic pain could use this information as well, it is for so much more than just Fibromyalgia. Please browse through the website and leave a comment.
This is a great article. I couldn’t say it any better myself, read below or go check out their website for loads of information. Help spread this message:
Evolution and Holistic Health Healthy Mind, Body & Universe. Nutrition,
Diet, Exercise, Environment, Medicine, Drugs, Alternative Healing
We are collecting research articles and information on complementary & alternative medicines (CAM) and also western mainstream medicine. Our purpose is to provide quality information so people can make informed choices. There is good and bad of both sides (we try to be impartial!). Ultimately evolution is our guide – we evolved from Nature – all life depends upon the evolution and ecology of Nature for its survival (which reflects the evolution and ecology of physical reality).
For now we would like to make a few points about human health that we think are important.
Holistic Health / Evolutionary Ecology / Dynamic Unity of Reality
It is well known that our senses are deceptive, that when we see things as being separate and discrete bodies this is an illusion. In reality mater is a structure of the universe and is subtly interconnected to al other matter in the universe (the wave structure of matter in space explains how this occurs). So ‘Holistic Medicine’ is not some fanciful ‘new age / spiritual’ nonsense – it is founded on scientific facts.
Using science terminology (which i realize many people do not like) then all we are really talking about is evolution and ecology. That all things in the universe (including life on earth) are interconnected and changing (the dynamic unity of reality).
So if you want to improve your health, then please realize that mind, matter (body) and space (universe) are one interconnected thing. Thus to improve your health you must consider these things together!
Business Selects for Profit – Not What is Good for Humans
The current medical system has become dominated by market economic forces which select for short term profit (and over consumption) rather than what is good for humans. This causes enormous problems for humanity. e.g. Multinational chemical / pharmaceutical corporations control many of the chemicals (herbicides, pesticides) that now dominate agricultural food production. They also patent genetically modified plants and animals that are resistant to these herbicides to increase food production and profits. This method of food production is obviously destroying nature and harming humans.
The bizarre irony of this! They then also make massive profits by selling chemical drugs to treat the diseases caused by the chemicals they sell for food production. So they make profits while making us sick, then make further profits in treating the symptoms of these ailments.
The solution. Abide by the rules of Nature (evolution and ecology). Try to live in a non polluted environment (clean air and water, organic food). And abide by the evolutionary fact that we evolved to exercise every day outside in the sunshine (collecting / hunting food)! We live in a beautiful world – we just forget this when living in cities. And these cities are now full of tens of thousands of chemicals that are poising humanity (including unseen electromagnetic pollution with unknown effects).
We will be adding more to this over the next few months. Our message is simple though – trust in Nature, be aware of your connection to the world around you, as a foundation for thinking and acting wisely!
Geoff and Karene
Our bodies were designed over the course of millions of years for lives spent in small tribes hunting and gathering on the plains of Africa. Natural selection has not had time to revise our bodies, nor minds, for coping with fatty diets, cars, drugs, most of city living. From this mix match between our design and our environment arises much, perhaps most, preventable modern disease. The current epidemics of heart disease and breast cancer are tragic examples. (Nesse & Williams, Evolution and Healing)
Simply unite Science (Occam’s Razor / Simplicity) with Metaphysics (Dynamic Unity of Reality) and describe reality from only one substance existing, as Leibniz wrote;
‘Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another’.
Given we all experience many minds and many material things, but always in one common Space, we are thus required to describe physical reality in terms of Space. We then find there is only one solution, a Wave Structure of Matter (WSM) where the electron is a spherical standing wave. See Wave Diagrams.
In hindsight the error was obvious, to try and describe an interconnected reality with discrete ‘particles’, which then required forces / fields to connect them in space and time. This was always just a mathematical solution which never explained how matter was connected across the universe.
I realize that there are a lot of ‘crackpot’ theories about truth and reality on the internet, but it is easy to show that the Wave Structure of Matter is the correct solution as it deduces the laws of Nature (the fundamentals of Physics & Philosophy ) perfectly (there are no opinions). While the Wave Structure of Matter is obvious once known, to begin it will seem strange simply because it takes time for our minds to adjust to new knowledge.
For those who are religious / spiritual, I think Albert Einstein expresses the enlightened view of God. He writes ‘I believe in Spinoza’s God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings.’ This harmony arises from a Wave Structure of Matter in Space (we are all interconnected in this space that we all commonly experience). This unity of reality (God, Brahman, Tao, Spirit, Energy, Light, Vibration) is central to all major world religions, thus their common moral foundation of ‘Do unto others as to thyself’ as the other is part of the self.
Please help our world (human society / life on earth) by sharing this knowledge.
Clearly our world is in great trouble due to human overpopulation and the resultant destruction of Nature, climate change and the pollution of air, land and water. The best solution to these problems is to found our societies on truth and the reality rather than past myths and customs (which invariably cause harm).
We are listed as one of the Top Philosophy Websites on the Internet with around 600,000 page views each week, and rank in the top 20 in Google for many academic search terms – so we just need a bit of help to get in the top five. Given the Censorship in Physics / Philosophy of Science Journals (founded on the standard model / particle physics) the internet is clearly the best way to get new knowledge visible to the world.
A world now in great need of wisdom from truth and reality.
