Chronic Pain Relief

There is so much advice out there about chronic pain but what really works?

Sufferers are so mislead by the media because there is such a big profit opportunity from people who are desperate to end their pain.

– Drug companies advertise on tv that their pill is the secret to living a great life as they list off their side effects that take up half the commercial time.

– Tylenol companies advertise that their pain pills “get you back to normal”.

Is that what the world has come to? We are normal if we are drugged up on prescription medications and pain meds?

We are so desperate to find relief we try this and that only to find that it isn’t
really working.

We have to put up with side effects such as:

– weight gain, head aches, stomach pain, swelling, constipation, diarrhea, decreased sexual desire or ability, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, increased sweating, loss of appetite, increased appetite, sore throat, tiredness, trouble sleeping, vomiting, weakness.

Then there are the more severe symptoms of:

– severe allergic reactions such as  rash, hives, itching, difficulty breathing,
tightness in the chest, swelling of the mouth, face, lips or tongue, unusual
hoarseness, bizarre behaviour, bloody or black tarry stools, blurred vision,
confusion, dark urine, decreased concentration, decreased coordination,
fainting, fast or irregular heartbeat, fever or chills, hallucinations, memory
loss, mouth sores or ulcers, new or worsening mental or mood changes eg.
aggressiveness, agitation, anxiety, depression, hostility, impulsiveness,
irritability, panic attacks, restlessness, pale stools, red swollen, blistered
or peeling skin, ringing in the ears, seizures, severe or persistent dizziness
or headaches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, tiredness, weakness, trouble sleeping, sluggishness, stiff muscles, stomach pain, suicidal thoughts or attempts, tremors, trouble urinating, unusual bruising or bleeding, unusual weakness, vomitting that looks like coffee grounds, yellowing of the skin or eyes.

Then we have the unfortunate who experience

– heart attacks, strokes, kidney damage, liver damage, successful suicides, anaphylaxis shock and even death.

That is quite a list isn’t it? And all from these drugs that are going to help with your pain and change your life as you know it. Helping you with your pain. That list came mostly from the Cymbalta side effects list, one of the drugs of choice for Fibromyalgia.

I looked to the medical system for years and I experienced a long list of the above and a near death situation. If I didn’t have such a big will to live I wouldn’t be here. Well believe me, if you keep taking pills year after year you WILL develop stomach problems along with a wide array of new symptoms. It seems like you keep adding illnesses to your list of conditions and they keep adding pills for the symptoms which mostly come from the pills. It is like a domino effect that keeps you falling the wrong way, into a chronic pain syndrome instead of out of pain, you become weakened and more dependant on everyone.

There is another way and I am finding my way out of the deep dark hole of our current medical system that didn’t work for me. It was weakening my body to a point that I didn’t find much reason for living. Nothing worked, pills had me to a point that I couldn’t eat anything because it caused so much internal pain, I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t wake up, I was in a permanent brain fog and on and on. There was only one way to describe it, MISERY. I went for help and ended up getting more symptoms, more pain, more disbelief from sceptic doctors, more frustration and a lot of pills.

Now today is different. I am still in pain but I have learned how to deal with my it on such a positive level. My stomach is so much better, I have less symptoms, I can sleep better, the brain fog is gone, I know my triggers, I know how to deal with each symptom, I know when and what contributes to my pain and I feel alive instead of near death. That alone is worth it’s weight and gold. Before I dreaded living the rest of my life in the state I was in, now I feel there is a light and I am looking forward to being pain free one day. I look forward to having grandchildren one day and being able to be with them instead of them sitting in my wheelchair with me or lying in my death bed.

If you want to learn to live your life with your pain opposed to suffering your life away with pain, I invite you to sign up for my newsletter and follow my path to wellness. I want to help you help yourself out of a very hard life of the
chronic pain cycle. The answer isn’t in a pill bottle but in a wide array of
solutions. I can help!

Please read some of my articles that might help you and browse around the website. There is lots of information that will hopefully help you understand where some of your pain might be coming from.

Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

 

There are a lot of people with Fibromyalgia suffering with stomach pain . There are several reasons for the pain and you should investigate them all until you come up with an answer to your pain. We are all different and there is no one cure all for everyone.

1. Diet

a) Lactose intolerant – milk can cause a wide array of problems from diarrhea,
stomach aches, mucous, breathing problems see articles below. Dairy is a protein
and contains casein. Cheese and milk chocolate can be constipating which can cause
a lot of colon and intestinal pain.


http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/1298

http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/1292

b) Gluten intolerance or Celiac disease can cause a lot of digestive upset as in
stomach pain, diarrhea,

http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/958

http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/1292

c) Aspartame and MSG and preservatives are known to cause a wide array of problems including stomach ache, headaches.

http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/651

If you are pregnant, you need to read this. Monsanto’s BT-toxin showing up in mother and babies blood:

http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/1090

Tell Kraft to label their Genetically altered foods:

http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/942

2. Endometriosis can cause a lot of lower abdominal pain as well as Fibromyalgia.
This video I was watching shows a connection that Endometriosis could be
connected to getting a blow to the stomach.

When I was about 10, I was a pitcher on our baseball team and I took a line drive right to the stomach. Boy, it took my breath away especially being about 60 lbs. I
always had a pain in my lower abdomen after that especially when I was running.
I eventually lost my ovary due to a cyst and then suffered with endometriosis.
Could there be a connection?

This is a great article on Endometriosis causing Fibromyalgia and how dioxins in food can cause pain and even cancer. A must read for anyone suffering with
Fibromyalgia, endometriosis or cancer:

http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/188


3. Chronic abdominal pain
has to be evaluated to rule out anything serious. It could be referred pain from
another organ such as liver, colon, stomach, small and large intestines, gall
bladder, pancreas or kidneys. If you have ruled out any serious cause and it is
diagnosed a part of your Fibromyalgia you need to take a serious look at your
diet. The thing you crave most is usually the culprit. Things you say you
couldn’t live without, well, you could live longer or with less pain if you take
them out of your diet.

The best place to start is
with water. When you wake up in the morning, drink two glasses of water to help
clean your colon out. If you have plugged up plumbing, how can you possibly have
a good day carrying around all that extra baggage? It only leads to long term
problems like diverticulitis, polyps or even cancer. I believe it causes
exhaustion and stomach problems at least.

Live whole food such as
fruits and vegetables can help you digest your food better. The average diet is
lacking in digestive enzymes since we McDonaldized out food.

If you suffer from stomach
aches, take out the preservatives, dyes, chemicals and genetically modified food
out of your diet and add healing foods, you’ll be glad you did.

Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia and Brain Fog

What the heck is brain fog? One of Fibromyalgia’s symptoms is brain fog but just what is it anyways? If you search it out, they have many reasons for the brain fog, Fibro fog and some call it a cognitive dysfunction. Anywhere from:

– lack of restorative sleep

– abnormal blood flow

– brain abnormalities

– premature brain aging

– mental distraction due to pain

Personally, I can tell you that my brain is fine. When I gave up all medication, my brain fog left. The medication that left me in the worst, severe brain fog for hours upon rising was Cyclobenzaprine HCL or Mylan-cyclobenzaprine which is
a muscle relaxant. It was near impossible to wake up in the morning, I was like a zombie for hours.

A usual practice for treating Fibromyalgia is with anti-depressants when you are first diagnosed. They tell you it is to help you sleep, I beg to differ. I think if we go back to my article on the psychological mislabeling of Fibromyalgia  we
will see that it has been an illness that not too many believed it was real but rather in the patients head. When I took their anti-depressants to “help me sleep”, I lost so much sleep. I was awake until sometimes 2 in the morning, then trying to wake up was impossible. There was major “brain fog” that was drug
induced.

http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/1202

Now I can see that we can experience mental distraction due to chronic and intense pain but it doesn’t exactly qualify for the label of brain abnormalities now does it? Give me a break! Of course now, if you have brain abnormalities, you should seek help. If you have depression, you need to seek help, especially if you are suicidal. Don’t be alone with these illnesses, there is help, seek it out. Talk to someone who can help.

Lack of restorative sleep is a problem for all sufferers of Fibromyalgia, this is something I can relate to. The reason most of us have disrupted sleep is because of pain or we are getting up to go the bathroom. What I have found that has helped immensely is a few practical rules to keep in mind.

– don’t eat or drink 3 hours before going to bed

– do stretching exercises before going to bed

– invest in a good mattress, a good portion of your life is spent in bed and your back and neck need proper support

– a pillow that supports sore necks ( I have tried every support pillow going and the best thing I have found is to tie a string around the center of your pillow so it looks like a bowtie) It helps neck pain a lot.

– don’t sleep on your arm, they just found it can cause heart problems. I used to sleep with my arm under my pillow and I had shoulder pain so bad it kept me awake at night. I found a slim pillow that I have under my bow tie pillow and it has
allowed me to sleep without laying on my arm and has helped with the shoulder pain.

– on a really sore area natural creams can help immensely like Traumeel, apply it before going to bed so you can get to sleep comfortably.

– a pillow between your legs can help knee pain and hip pain

– try to eliminate caffeine from your diet and certainly stay away from those energy drinks, they aren’t good for anyone

– try meditation and visualization before bedtime. Try to visualize yourself having a restful nights sleep, it might help trigger your subconscious mind to have a good night sleep. Meditation can help relieve the stress of the day.

– breathing exercises help increase oxygen flow to the body

How about premature brain aging? The fact that our brains age prematurely doesn’t have to do with Fibromyalgia per say but rather applies to any and every human alive. Here are some things that can age the brain prematurely:
– eating the wrong food

– lack of essential oils

– lack of brain nutrition

– not exercising our brains

– watching Jerry Springer (lol)

– failure to keep educating ourselves

– taking too many street drugs

– taking too many prescription drugs

– not getting the right nutrition, vitamins and minerals

– having too many toxins build up in the brain

– not getting the right fats (today’s modern diets are high in the wrong fats and low to nil in the right fats)

– not enough fibre to grab hold of cholesterol and fat to usher them out of the body

– if we don’t feed our brains then you will get premature aging

– lack of exercise

– failure to keep learning

– stress

– over work

– over exertion

– too much of anything is not good

– In the book “Eat away illness” by Carlson Wade he says scientists theorize that a nutrient called choline is able to strengthen neurotransmitters or “telegraph signals” between the nerve systems in the brain. Choline can help replenish and
rejuvenate  cells to help you think young again.  He  says
choline is available as a supplement and is especially potent in a substance called lecithin. Derived from soybeans or sunflower seeds, lecithin may well be the key to having a “young mind” in a young body. Now I advise here since this book might have been made before the genetically modified foods were introduced
into our food chain that you need to buy this in organic form as you will find yourself in more trouble taking a genetically modified form derived from soy, please beware.

Have you ever heard the term, if you don’t use it, you lose it. That applies to intelligence as well as our bodies. How can the brain keep focus and youthful when we are filling it with gossip, drugs, toxins and nutritionally void foods?

What can we do?

– eat the right kind of fats, olive oil, sesame oil, coconut oil

– eat high soluble fiber foods from beans, oats, barley, carrots, apples, prunes (ew),  and figs (ew)  : )  Wheat and wheat bran are insoluble fiber, more for irregularity but high in allergens and can cause a myriad of symptoms. High fiber can flush away colon cancer before it takes hold of you. In the book the
ABC’s of nutrition they warn of two cautions: Don’t overdue fiber until you’re used to it, and don’t use fiber pills. Sone of the pills begin swelling up while they’re still in your throat, and a serious blockage can result.


Recommended 20 to 35 grams of fiber a day

Pears, Cherimoya, triticale (raw), cowpeas, corn bran (raw), Amaranth seeds, (raw), Miso, blackberries, Chickpeas, kidney beans, lima beans, refried beans, baby lima beans, mamey, black beans, Ralston cereal, raspberries (my most favourite food in the world, um), apples, whole wheat spaghetti, peaches, figs, lentils, succotash, figs, guava, navy beans, zante.

No wonder we have so much colon cancer and digestive problems today. I can see why we have trouble getting the right amount of fiber a day since most of these foods are non existent in the modern diet. We can add kidney beans to our chili, refried beans to our tacos, eat peaches or apples everyday. I have a great scratch recipe for navy beans that are better than any canned pork and beans. If your colon is blocked, your whole system can be affected.

http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/1023

What is your brain made of?

– fats and proteins

– 100 billion nerve cells (wow, no wonder things can go wrong)

What do we need to keep it healthy?

If it is made of fats and proteins then that could be a very good hint that it is vital that we need to feed it with the right fats and proteins to keep our brains from Alzheimer’s, dementia and premature brain aging.

Read everyday and learn something. 

When it comes to answers, we need to listen to the people. This is what really matters, not some chemist, doctor or drug company who hasn’t experienced the pain of Fibromyalgia but the people who are seeking answers, not just another drug to
try. We can only mask the pain for so long, believe me, 21 years of chronic pain, listening to doctors and taking their pills with no avail. Now I seek solutions, no more band aids. So let go back to the basics.

I was reading the comments on the Fibromyalgia article on brain fog in arthritis today. Leon wrote, had a hair test done and he showed high levels of mercury. Interesting, I had all my mercury fillings removed and did a cleanse, it has made a major difference in my life. Shelly Jordan has been through so many drugs that didn’t help. I hear you girl! Tammy F has had all kinds of CT scans and such and they all came back normal. Accused of  being over medicated, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, thought she was crazy, asked if there was a history of
mental illness in the family. I can relate to the ignorance of getting a diagnose and not being looked at as a hypochondriac. Bea said said the drug Saville helped her muscle pain but put her blood pressure and blood sugar out of whack that she thought she was going to die. I can also relate, are we supposed to damage other organs to help with pain? I think we need to find a better approach. I hope this article will help someone with their pain.

For the fifth time, I tell my story. Diagnosed with RA four years ago. I
accepted. However, I have since done research and been through so many drugs
that dont ghelp. Im now waiting for a research study for Sjorgrens, But to be
honest I thinkI have fibromyalgia. The muscular-skeletol pain is un measurable.
Thanks for the info. and listening.

Until I found a doctor who was familiar with fibromyalgia and was diagnosed with
fibro, my fibro fog was mistaken for being over medicated and even drug abuse
and alcohol abuse. So I insisted they drug test me and when the tests came back
negative for drugs and alcohol they started taking CT scans and so on of my
brain. But they did tons of other tests and couldn’t figure out a cause for all
my pain, etc. They started thinking I was crazy…asking if there was any family
history of mental health issues. It was such a blessing when I eventually ended
up with a doctor that knew what was wrong

i have been having fibro for many years and can totally sympathize with
everybody. i wanted to see if anybody has experience problems with the drug
Saville? My blood pressure and blood sugar went totally out of whack when i
started taking it to the point that i thought i was going to die when my blood
pressure dropped to 59. i am having heart pulpations and dizziness to the point
that i can’t get dressed. i stopped taking saville, but within a week my fibro
problems are back. Does anybody have any knowledge of a natural alternative for
saville? i am really tired of putting all these drugs in my body and i am trying
to do as much as i can natural.

Alcohol is taken regularly with pain killers, prescription, over the counter and street drugs without thinking twice about it. Do we really know the consequences, long term results or internal damage we could be causing to our bodies?

The addiction to alcohol, pain killers or street drugs can also lead to liver damage, kidney damage, hives, mental illnesses or even worse, child neglect, child abuse or spousal abuse. Not to mention the crime, theft and death and devastation drinking and driving accidents cause.

Lets remember that one alcoholic drink means:

  • 12 ounces beer
  • 5 ounces of wine

1 1/2 ounces of 80% proof, 1 ounce of 100% proof

Anti-depressants

Cymbalta – alcohol and drugs like Cymbalta affect similar chemicals in the brain

– concern is increasing effects of alcohol, possibly increasing depression or affecting motor skills

– healthcare professionals advise is you do drink, drink light to moderate amounts

* My thought – it is a fairly new drug and we are the guinea pigs so report your side effects and adverse reactions with drugs/alcohol/herbal/foods. I would consider liver or kidney damage. There are withdrawals symptoms with Cymbalta, libido and on and on.

**I am not a doctor or professional but I wouldn’t combine them or take either if you have a history of depression, suicidal thoughts or any kind of mental illness. Get some help, it will get better.

*** Here is it, though I would include it too. Warnings are for anyone with biopolar, suicidal attempts, heart disease, diabetes, seizures, epilepsy, glaucoma, liver, kidney, bladder or allergies.

Spice Up Your Sex Life!

Forget the Chocolate! Add Saffron and Ginseng to your nutrition plan. Both are proven performance boosters while chocolate and wine effects of sexual desire or performance is likely in your head.

March 28, 2011 – News Release Guelph University.

Ontario researchers have done it again. Guelph food science professor Massimo Marcone  and John Melnyk, a master’s student found studies to support good old herbs and spices can give results.

They found that panax ginseng, saffron and yohimbine, a natural chemical from yohimbe trees in West Africa, improved human sexual function.

People report increased sexual desire after eating:

muira puama, a flowering plant found in Brazil

maca root, a mustard plant in the Andes

chocolate, despite its claimed aphrodisiac effect, chocolate was not linked to sexual arousal or satisfaction [1]

Saffron Iran Saffron Threads

Did you know that saffron comes from our common flower, the crocus sativus?

Crocus Sativus by KENPEI’s photo

Public Domain KENPEI Crocus_sativus1

Saffron

contains more than 150 volatile and aroma-yielding compounds

– also has many nonvolatile active components, many of which are carotenoids, including:

1) zeaxanthin

2) lycopene

3) various ?- and ?-caratenoids

However, saffron’s golden yellow-orange colour is primarily the result of ?-crocin. [2]

So lets take a look at Saffron’s history:

Until now, the earliest known use was around 1000 B.C., with visual and written evidence for the myrtle, the lily, the poppy and others.

Now, scholars say, the dating of a volcanic eruption and botanically accurate wall paintings indicate that saffron has been a versatile medicine since 3,500 years ago.

They base their case on frescoes at Thera, a Greek island in the Aegean, that have been thought to depict a goddess overseeing the production of perfume or spice.

Instead, the scholars say, the frescos, from 1500 or 1600 B.C. — the exact date is a topic of debate — show the goddess presiding over the manufacture and use of a drug from the saffron flower. [3]

Either way, it shows the safe use of herbs and spices for hundreds of years. It sure is taking us a long time to catch up with science. Why have we taken our science ventures into chemical warfare rather than using the cures from nature? They are indeed fascinating!

Saffron History

Saffron was detailed in a 7th-century BC Assyrian botanical reference compiled under Ashurbanipal. [4]

Documentation of saffron’s use over the span of 4,000 years in the treatment of some 90 illnesses has been uncovered. [5]

Saffron-based pigments have indeed been found in 50,000 year-old depictions of prehistoric places in northwest Iran. [6]

The Sumerians later used wild-growing saffron in their remedies and magical potions [7] [8]

Ginseng 

Folk medicine attributes various benefits to oral use of American ginseng and Asian ginseng (P. ginseng) roots, including roles as an aphrosdisiac, stimulant, type II diabetes treatment, or cure for sexual dysfunction in men. [9]

Ginseng and Reishi mushrooms in bottles being sold in Seoul, Korea 

by yarra64

Market-ginseng by yarra64

The price of wild ginseng roots has climbed in the last decade. Now domestic buyers pay $500 to $600 per pound compared with about $50 per pound of cultivated roots. Law enforcement officials say the prices have pushed people into the woods looking for quick money . [10]

Current popularity of such drugs as Viagra and Cialis to treat erectile dysfunction. Viagra and Cialis brought in $1.9 billion US and $1.7 billion US, respectively, last year for their parent companies, Pfizer Inc. and Eli Lilly and Co. [12]

Even young kids are asking for these drugs and mixing it with ecstasy which is really dangerous.

What a hoot! That planet fitness commercial makes me laugh every time I see it. The big, dumb looking body builder in his short, shorts with his 3 liter jug of juice saying over and over………

I lift things up and put them down.

I lift things up and put them down.

I lift things up and put them down.

I lift things up and put them down.

As they escort him out the back door……

Hmmm, too much steroids or too much genetically modified soy protein isolate? LOL

You know, it doesn’t matter what it is that makes you laugh, make sure you do it everyday. It releases endorphins, those feel good hormones and we need a burst of them everyday!

Seriously though, most body builders take some form of that protein with soy protein isolate. The problem is that most of it is genetically modified or GMO  which has been shown to cause erectile dysfunction, hormonal disturbance, infertility and loss of libido in women as well as many other symptoms. Kind of ironic isn’t it? Trying to build a hard, sexy body meanwhile it is robbing you of your sexual well being.

Why do they allow these products on the market if they are harming us? Soy is good if it is organic, just make sure you are buying from a source you can trust. GMO foods not only jeopardize human health but also our environment, organic farming and animals.

I try to find the best products and the best prices for you.

If you are looking for pure, natural and organic body building proteins you can trust, click on the link below and put proteins in the search. This is the best price so far that I have found so far, but will continue to search.

For serious body builders, the Capra Double Bonded Protein sound like a good product, is gluten free, GMO free. I would think the Sun Warriors protein would be a good product too. I haven’t tried the body building products because I just exercise to firm not build, I am chick not a dude. : ) I can buy my chia seeds and have them delivered cheaper than I can buy them here though. We Canadians do have to pay a duty fee on the order which puts the price up for us.

 

Here are some articles I wrote on the effects of genetically modified foods. It is worth checking them out:

So the FDA has finally admitted that all anti-inflammatories can kill you. Have you been treated with anti-inflammatories for your Fibromyalgia? Here is some information you really need to be aware of before taking Vioxx, Bextra or Celebrex associated with heart attacks, strokes and cardiovascular disease. Also over the counter drugs Aleve, Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Naproxyn and prescription Naproxyn and Aleve to limit or discontinue. He also talks about the effects of aspirin causing internal bleeding and wasn’t it Dr Oz who recommended a baby aspirin a day? Tylenol causes liver damage. Nsaids or anti-inflammatories causing erectile dysfunction. When is it going to end? Aren’t these the very things that are supposed to be keeping us healthy?

My confusion is the mixed information or rather mis-information and prescribing for Fibromyalgia. I have been given prescription anti-inflammatories for the past 18 years, now I am concerned. Anyone else been on years of anti-inflammatories?

What can we do for pain? Be educated! Jon Baron is a miracle doctor and here is his explanation for pain. What I find interesting is the link of Substance P and Fibromyalgia I wrote about in another article. You can read his book for free on line or buy it for a low price. I have tried his products and they are amazing, organic, wildcrafted herbs. I am not an affiliate, I just highly recommend the man and trust his information and product. He genuinely cares for your health, not his pocket book.

I have read story after story from Fibromyalgia sufferers and in the end they all have the same desperation about them. Severe pain and suffering that is dismissed, a total lack of understanding and very little to no compassion. They often leave the doctors office with little or no relief and often more confused than when we went in. It is very difficult to live with the chronic pain and can be harder for family and friends to understand. Sometimes you look fine but you have this gnawing, burning pain that no one can see and extreme fatigue that no one can explain. So we are often looked at as complainers or lazy.

What they don’t know is how they feel when they have the flu is what you have become accustomed to as your everyday life. People get sore muscles and fatigue from the flu or overworking their muscles, with Fibromyalgia you live like that everyday. Feeling like you have been lifting 400 lbs of weight all day. You could do the same thing as a friend and they might experience pain in their muscles for a day or two then they bounce back, you take sometimes take weeks to recover.

Many doctors know little to none about Fibromyalgia so I think they push it off as a case of the lazies. You know, since there is nothing wrong in your blood tests. Do exercise and you will be fine. Like the famous old saying goes, “Take two aspirins and call me in the morning!”

Being a sufferer of Fibromyalgia myself for 21 year + now, I have been through all the humiliation, frustration and ignorance that goes with this “mystery syndrome” of chronic pain that no one understands or can explain because it doesn’t make sense, it is too multi-faceted or the doctor just don’t believe in it. It is met with a lot of skepticism which comes with a lot of frustration for the patient who is desperate to find answers to their pain.

The best thing you can do is to keep Doctor shopping until you have found a compassionate one that understands and has some knowledge and experience with Fibromyalgia. Even better, if you can afford a Naturopathic Doctor or alternative practitioners, they can help a lot. Body work is even better such as Massage, Osteopathy or Chiropractor, they can help sort out the pain if it is internal or external, what pain leaves and what pain returns. Shop around, there are good and bad in everything. The chronic pain itself is hard to live with and can effect the very soul of the sufferer. If you don’t have a compassion or understanding it can be detrimental. There has been many suicides from Fibromyalgia.

I think that Doctors need to stop playing god and start to listen and I mean really listen to their patients. They assume, they judge by appearance, they make an opinion even before knowing all the facts, they dismiss your pain as if you are exaggerating. No one knows your body like you do.

There is too much illness and they don’t have the time to get to know their patients. It seems you are allotted a 5 minute time slot and the doctor is always too busy to really listen or to hear as they might put it “my complaints”. It seemed to me that I was a number waiting in the Doctors office, waiting to be given script #500,602. The thing is script #1 to 500,601 didn’t work so why was I bothering anymore? We don’t know what Fibromyalgia is but we are willing to throw all these drugs at it and hope something works or at least it will shut the patient up until she comes back again with the same complaints or new issues from the side effects.

How can they treat something with drugs that they don’t understand? Isn’t that like giving a car oil in the gas tank? How do they know that these drugs aren’t what is causing it in the first place? My search is to finding the root cause to all my pain.

I don’t get the flu shot, I know what is in them and I don’t need anymore insult to my body. Everyone I know who gets the flu shot end up getting really sick. Hmm…………

Keep your immunity strong and you will fight off bacteria and virus. I remember reading in many natural and alternative articles that most colds are actually your body detoxing a lot of mucous and unwanted stuff out of your body. If left they will usually take care of themselves and no medication is needed.

Examples of misuse that we don’t think of is always treating a temperature with tylenol. Fever is a way the body fights off infection so it means your body is doing it’s job or when we take cough suppressants when we need to be coughing up that mucous and clearing it out of our bodies.
