term disabling and sometimes permanent central nervous system disorders caused
by fluoroquinolone antibiotics

– anxiety

depression

panic attacks

suicidal ideation

depersonalization

toxic psychosis

paranoia

Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

The FDA – Do they really have your best interest at heart?

I was just reading from the Health Ranger that they have shut down yet another
natural healer, I went to the FDA’s website to check things out. Upon the last       paragraph that I read:

FDA, an agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

  • protects the public health by assuring the safety, effectiveness and security of

  • human and veterinary drugs

  • vaccines and other biological products for human use

  • medical devices.

  • FDA also is responsible for the safety and security of our

  • nation’s food supply

  • cosmetics

  • dietary supplements

  • products that give off electronic radiation

  • regulating tobacco products.

I am in awe of this statement when in fact they allow all kinds of products on the      shelves that will indeed harm us. They even block out products that help heal and         even fight cancer and herbs and natural medicines that have been healing people for thousands of years because they can’t profit from them.

There are no regulations on cleaning products or personal care products and they            are filled with many toxic chemicals that can indeed harm you. They allow chemicals, preservatives, dyes, aspartame, msg, and genetically modified chemicals into your         food chain without your knowledge. They allow mercury in vaccines and all kinds               of drugs onto the market that are later pulled off because of severe side effects or        death. They allow them there to begin with, then they play the hero of pulling them          off the shelf to protect us when they find out they cause harm to humans? Vicious         little circle.

I include everything on my website that I want to keep in my collection. These             videos show the other side of the FDA and the Drug Companies they don’t want               you to know about. Proof that they are causing harm to humans. We have been               kept in the dark too long and I believe we are putting our trust in the devil. You                  be the judge and make your own informed decisions:

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


Fibromyalgia Suicides –
Could There Be a Link to Antidepressants Like Cymbalta and Lyrica?


Fibromyalgia Suicides


What a complicated and frustrating condition Fibromyalgia can be,  getting
diagnosed. There is so much constant, severe, unexplained pain with Fibro, it is
sometimes even hard for the sufferer to believe that someone could possibly be
in that much pain and  fatigue without a reason why.


It can be met with doubt and scepticism from doctors who believe it is in the
patients head which can be quite defeating for a patient who is seriously
suffering. 


The mystery of Fibro can cause a lot of emotional turmoil in a patients life.
The unknown is hard to deal with. When you don’t know what is causing your pain,
you can’t fix it which leads to a lot of frustration, you lose all hope.


There are multiple symptoms, fatigue, pain all over, muscle pain, tender points,
sleep difficulties, brain fog, digestive disorders to name a few. It is
miserable.


The list of symptoms seems to grow as we gain more awareness of Fibromyalgia.
When you experience the same symptoms and your life is disappearing as the years
go by. Nothing you have tried has made any difference in your condition and you
have no answers, it starts to play on your soul. 


This is why it is so important to have a good support system, someone who
understands and believes you are having pain. This type of support could be very
helpful for those who feel suicidal.


You have to believe that you will get through this, that there is a way to gain
your strength back and reduce some of the pain and discomfort. They are finding
more answers everyday.


Don’t go it alone, we all need help sometimes. Make sure you seek out the right
kind. You don’t want to find a group of depressed people to get you out of your
depression.


Finding a support group, a friend, a  family member, a therapist, an
inspirational group, dr, naturopath dr, homeopathic dr or a church can be a good
place to look for support. Whatever works within your beliefs. Watch a comedy
every night if that is what it takes. Remember, it is only temporary, whatever
it is, it will pass and you will get through it, actually, you did get through
it, you are here and you are alive.


I am wondering if Fibromyalgia
suicides could be linked to the use of antidepressants.
 Check
out these videos before you decide to use antidepressants drugs like Prozac.


I also checked the ask
a patient website and they are reporting feeling suicidal thoughts from Cymbalta.
 See
for yourself. Lyrica
users are reporting brain fog and suicidical thoughts
. Is the brain fog
from the medications? Mine seems to have cleared up since I went off all the
drugs. My mind is clearer now and I don’t feel like a walking zombie anymore
either.



http://www.askapatient.com/viewrating.asp?drug=21427&name=CYMBALTA
 



http://www.askapatient.com/viewrating.asp?drug=21723&name=LYRICA




I am here to help you feel better and hopefully avoid some unnecessary heartache
and pain.


Feel free to leave a comment or an experience you


have had with Cymbalta or Lyrica. The more we talk


and share, the more people we can help.

Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia


Fibromyalgia fatigue and hormonal health

This is very important and not taken seriously enough by doctors. I want to share my experience with fatigue that may help many women and men as well. I went through major stress of family illness and death as well as all my injury and illness. I was to the point that I was so fatigued, so exhausted. I asked my doctors over and over again but to no avail, “it’s the Fibromyalgia”. What exactly does that mean anyways? Do we give something a name so we can blame everything on it? I was desperate from the overwhelming feeling of being totally drained, it was hard to stand and even breathing was a chore. I was starting to think I had cancer like my mom.

I went to my gynecologist Dr Pettle who practices natural medicines and
specializes in hormone health. He told me my adrenals were so low they were
close to shutting down. I was also low in progesterone and testosterone as well. He prescribed a natural remedy for my adrenals and progesterone and I
started coming back to life, my well being was returning. Could Fibromyalgia fatigue be hormonal? 

I gave the results to my general practitioner and his reply was, “oh, that isn’t too bad. My adrenals were in the range of a 90 year old and he said that wasn’t too bad. I felt like I was dying and he wasn’t too concerned about it. That is why this is so important for me to relay this to you. Is your doctor being honest with you? Your adrenal health is overlooked in general medicine, not important enough to be tested for, yet so important to your well being.

Hormone health is so vital and can make such a difference to your health, yet so neglected. I am telling you that if you feel so fatigued like the life is being sucked out of you, like you can’t fill the tank at all anymore no matter what you try. If you are trying to drink so much caffeine to pick you up but it isn’t working, you need to get another opinion if you aren’t getting any answers with your doctors. Go to a Naturopath or a Gynecologist who specializes in natural hormone health. It is so vital to your well being. Prescription hormone replacement therapy has been shown to cause more problems just as many drugs have shown.

David Wolfe is right though, if you quit taking the replacements, the symptoms all come back. You do need to address your bodies needs with the proper food, nutrients and grounding.

Ask for the doctor to test your adrenal function and ask to see the results, not just a report from him saying they are okay. Fine to him may mean your adrenals are that of a 90 year old when you are 30, 40 or 50. Some doctors don’t take hormone health seriously enough. When your hormones are out of whack, so is your life. It is the reason for so many symptoms and mood and so vitally important for you to feel good.

David Wolfe is one of the leading experts in hormone health and he says they can
account for

– obesity

– depression

– most forms of cancer

– diabetes

– growth abnormalities

– aging

– infertility

– mood swings

– heart disease

– sleep apnea

– high cholesterol

When you are estrogen dominant, you can experience:

– chronic migraines

– insomnia

– chronic acne

– inability to lose weight

– mood swings

So get tested!

Causes of hormonal imbalances are:

– artificial light

– aging

– medication, esp. for cholesterol and birth control

– soy products

– rancid fats and oils

– pesticides, pollution and plastics

– lack of wholesome saturated fats  oils in diet

– lack of grounding

Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia


EthicalOil.org is asking for your help by avoid buying Chiquita Bananas and Fresh Express Salads because of their ban on ethical Canadian oil.

What can we do to help support Canadian oil?

Sign the petition http://www.ethicaloil.org/

Quit buying Chiquita bananas!

Find alternative banana companies.

Buy organic! Most grocery stores now have organic bananas that are sometimes only ten cents more per pound. (you will be giving up genetically modified, pesticides and chemicals though!)

Look for Dole banana or any other company. (Dole is the only one I can think of as a competitor)

What I really want to know is……are they genetically modified bananas? So I did some research to see if they are and I came across some more information that we need to know.

I think we might be safe for as far as genetically modified   foods although they are starting to experiment with it now. I dug up something even bigger, just what Dole doesn’t want you to see. Perhaps we should be avoiding all bananas except organic due to the pesticides that are poisoning there workers and if they are using pesticides, then we are eating pesticides. If you saw or support Food Inc, you will like Bananas, here is the trailer you can watch now: 

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/08/14/bananas-the-shocking-film_n_259692.html

Remember if you are boycotting Chiquita don’t abandon bananas all together.

We know we need bananas for their potassium but what else is in a banana?

I went to bananas.com and found some fascinating facts about bananas. I knew they were healthy for you but I didn’t know how wonderful these little specially wrapped bundles are. What a powerhouse of nutrition with may medicinal healing properties.


Nutritional benefits of one large 9 inch banana

– 602 mg of potassium

– 140 calories

– 2 grams of protein

– 4 grams of fiber

– 2 mg of sodium

– 123 I.U. Vitamin A

– full range of b vitamins

  – .07mg Thiamine

  – .15 mg of Riboflavin

  – .82 mg Niacin

  – .88 mg Vitamin B6

  – 29 mcg Folic Acid

– 13.8 mg Vitamin C

– 9.2 mg calcium

– 44.1 mg magnesium

– trace amounts of iron and zinc

Wow, that is some healthy fruit! Magnesium and potassium are two vital nutrients that we have to keep replenishing

Medicinal Healing Properties

Energy Boost – #1 food with world’s athletes, contains 3 natural sugars, sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. Gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Enough for a 90 minute workout

Nerves – high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system

PMS – regulates blood glucose levels which can affect your mood

Anemia – high in iron

Overweight and at work – most obese people were more likely to have high-pressure jobs. Report from Institute of Psychology in Austria report concluded that to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to snack on high
carbohydrate foods (such as bananas) every two hours to control our blood sugar levels

Depression – bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, the feel good hormone

Blood Pressure – extremely high is potassium yet low in salt; the US Food and Drug Administration or FDA has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for it’s ability to reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke.

Hangovers – banana milkshake with honey

Morning sickness – eating bananas between meals can help keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness

Mosquito Bites – rub the bite with the inside of a banana skin

Brain Power – can assist learning by keeping students alert

Constipation – high in fibre, can help restore normal bowel action, forget the laxatives!

Ulcers – only raw fruit that can be eaten food that can be eaten without distress for over-chronic ulcer cases, also neutralises over-acidity and coats the lining of the stomach.

Temperature Control

Seasonal Affective Disorder SAD – natural mood enhancers, trypotophan

Quit Smoking – Vitamins C, A, B6, B12, potassium, magnesium

Stress – Potassium is a vital mineral – normalizes heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates body’s water-balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing potassium levels

Strokes – eating bananas on a regular basis cuts risk by 40% according to research from New England Journal of Medicine

Warts – tape a piece of banana skin on the wart

Heartburn -natural antacid effect

I was looking for the nutritional facts of one large banana and found:

121 calories

112 from carbohydrates

3.8 from fat 

5 from protein

0 from alcohol

On the Self nutrition data website I found it interestingly included the inflammation factor:

– a banana scores shows it is mildly inflammatory at -69

– foods with a negative rates are inflammatory and foods with a positive rate are anti-inflammatory.

Here is the petition again:

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.

http://depression.emedtv.com/cymbalta/cymbalta-and-alcohol.html

Suicidal? Please call for help, it can get better!

1-800-273-8255

http://www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org/

I will be adding more soon…………..

Okay, I am back my friends. I was looking at the National Fibromyalgia website and they are supported by Lilly USA, LLC. Lily is a major drug manufacturer. If you go to their site you can see a list of drugs they supply, one of them being Cymbalta our newest drug of choice being prescribed for Fibromyalgia. You can go see all kinds of doctors and specialists and that is what it comes down to in the end. The treatment is pain killers or Cymbalta and advise to do your exercise. Many other drugs are prescribed, one at a time to see what chemical cocktail works best for you.

Good luck with that and all the new symptoms you will experience from side effects. I can’t take it anymore, I am getting better through natural alternative treatment. The way I see it, we don’t know the long term effects of any of these drugs, people become zombies to their prescriptions and there is no end to it. I have a permanent sick pain inside my guts from long term use of their prescription drugs. I lost a lot of the brain fog when the drugs cleared out of my system along with a pile of other symptoms.

http://www.lilly.com/products/Pages/products.aspx

What I found interesting on Lilly website is that Fibromyalgia has it’s own category and the medication used is Cymbalta and it is also listed as a treatment in Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathic Pain and Neuroscience. Doesn’t that tell us that the drug industry is classifying Fibromyalgia as a neurological problem? No one knows the cause yet they have classified and are treating humans with it . So further more I go to their website to see side effects for Cymbalta and was shocked at how the efficacy of Cymbalta was established from such little trial for such serious illnesses as depression and anxiety disorders when the warning on the same page is it can cause suicidal thoughts and psychiatric disorders. Wow what a bonus for an already depressed person. Is it not like giving an already suicidal person a gun. So every 1 in 12 is actually loaded with a bullet but no one knows who is getting it. Crazy as it sounds, I

Indicated for the treatment of.

–  major depressive disorder (MDD). The efficacy of Cymbalta was established in four short-term and one maintenance trial in adults.

–  generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). The efficacy of Cymbalta was established in three short-term and one maintenance trial in adults.

–  management of diabetic peripheral neuropathic pain and fibromyalgia.

–  management of chronic musculoskeletal pain in people with chronic osteoarthritis pain and chronic low back pain.

Important Safety Information About Cymbalta

Antidepressants can increase suicidal thoughts and behaviors in children, teens, and young adults. Suicide is a known risk of depression and some other psychiatric disorders.

Now going back to the National Fibromyalgia Association, here is what they believe:

– underlying cause or causes of FM still remain a mystery

– most researchers agree that FM is a disorder of central processing with neuroendocrine/neurotransmitter dysregulation

– patient experiences pain amplification due to abnormal sensory processing in the central nervous system

– an increasing number of scientific studies now show multiple physiological abnormalities in the FM patient, including:

– increased levels of substance P in the spinal cord

– low levels of blood flow to the thalamus region of the brain

– HPA axis hypofunction

– low levels of serotonin and tryptophan and

– abnormalities in cytokine function.

So how does Cymbalta fit in with this and what the heck is Cymbalta?

Lets go to RX List

Cymbalta® (duloxetine hydrochloride)

– selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SSNRI)

– chemical designation is (+)-(S)-N-methyl-?-(1-naphthyloxy)-2thiophenepropylamine hydrochlorie

– empirical formula is C18H19NOS•HCl

– the structural formula is:

 

Cymbalta (duloxetine hydrochloride) Structural Formula  Illustration

– is a white to slightly brownish white solid, which is slightly soluble in water.

– enteric-coated pellets are designed to prevent degradation of the drug in the acidic environment of the stomach.

Inactive ingredients include

– FD&C Blue No. 2, gelatin

– hypromellose

– hydroxypropyl methylcellulose acetate succinate

sodium lauryl sulfate

– sucrose

– sugar spheres

– talc

– titanium dioxide

– triethyl citrate

– the 20 and 60 mg capsules also contain iron oxide yellow.

http://www.rxlist.com/cymbalta-drug.htm

Wow, I am glad that I chose to keep on my Natural path to wellness. Did anyone notice how the sodium lauryl sulfate is not only in our shampoo but also in our drugs?
