Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

 

Fibro and Muscle Health


Fibromyalgia syndrome has a lot of muscle pain. What can we do  for it?

Muscle health begins with exercise, stretching, nutrition, rest, relaxation and
detoxifying. The biggest thing is to recognize your limits and don’t overwork
them in the first place. If you lead a sedentary life and find you have pain
when you do become physical Vitamin E can apparently help with this.

Vitamin E

Can help:

  • Alzheimer’s disease

  • diabetes

  • fibrocystic breasts

  • immunity

  • Parkinson’s disease

  • asthma

  • cancer

  • cataracts

  • heart disease

  • muscle soreness

  • yeast infections

Sources:

  • asparagus

  • barley

  • cherries

  • nuts

  • wheat

  • wheat germ

  • sunflower seeds

I don’t recommend wheat as a source if you suffer from any form or irritable bowel, intestinal problems, gluten intolerance or celiac. 


Interesting fact:

More than 50% of men with diabetes have difficulty achieving erections, often because of free radical damage to the arteries supplying blood to the penis. Getting enough Vitamin E in the diet can help keep blood flowing smoothly through those arteries. DV for Vitamin E is 30 international units. Dr Ordman recommends shooting for 400 IU.

For those folks who are sedentary most of the time and experience aching muscles  when they exercise, it appears Vitamin E may reduce muscle soreness.

Muscle Cramps

A matter of minerals. Cramps are a muscle’s way of telling you it’s tired, hungry or in need of rest. Magnesium such as calcium, potassium, sodium and magnesium which are known as electrolytes play a role in helping the brain send electrical messages the brain sends to the appropriate muscles. Magnesium tends to be the leader as it helps the others do their jobs. People who are depleted in magnesium tend to have greater irritability of the muscles and nerves.

Food sources of magnesium include:

  • tofu

  • spinach

  • mackerel

Your muscles also need:

  • calcium (from food, not supplements)

  • potassium

  • sodium

  • water

  • glycogen a sugar from carbohydrates

  • carbohydrates from potatoes, rice, bananas and bread

Remember these sources should not come from genetically modified foods!
