Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

Probiotics can give you benefits for your emotions and gut inflammation.

Did you know that probiotics change brain activity and emotional response?

Oppenheimer Family Center for Neurobiology of Stress, a division of digestive diseases found that a four week
intake of fermented milk products by healthy women affected activity of brain regions that control central processing of emotion and sensation.

For those of you who can’t or don’t want to consume milk you can take a probiotic supplement.

It is extremely interesting that we can help our emotions with food.

Probiotics have also been found to help with gut inflammation such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Manipulation of gut microbiota composition and the production of microbial-derived metabolites by using prebiotics, probiotics and dietary fibers is being explored as a promising avenue of prophylactic and therapeutic intervention against gut inflammation.

Prebiotics and fiber carbohydrates are fermented by resident microflora into short chain fatty acids (SCFAs) in the colon. SCFAs then activate peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)?, a nuclear transcription factor with widely demonstrated anti-inflammatory efficacy in experimental IBD.

The activation of PPAR? by naturally ocurring compounds such as conjugated linoleic acid, pomegranate seed oil-derived punicic acid, eleostearic acid and abscisic acid has been explored as nutritional interventions that suppress colitis by directly modulating the host immune response.

Fibromyalgia muscle pain and fatigue can be overwhelming to the sufferer. No one understands how it can wear on a person especially when you look fine. Lets have a good look at what they say about Fibromyalgia muscle pain.

I don’t know about you but as a sufferer myself, I am confused to say the very least. I am told and also read conflicting information about whether there is inflammation or not with Fibromyalgia.

One doctor say yes, one says no

One specialist says yes, one says no

One Rheumatologist says yes, one says no

One medical journal say yes, one says no

One study says yes, one says no

Wonder why the patient gets confused?

My thought on this is that the studies or tests have been done by some Fibromyalgia patients who have inflammation or arthritic conditions as well as Fibromyalgia and other studies have been on people who do not have inflammation. Or could some of these sufferers really have aspartame or msg poisoning? Read article below about Fibromyalgia and aspartame.

I know I had a lot of pain that the rest of the women did not have at the Fibromyalgia support group I went to years ago. I had widespread pain, they only had pain within the 18 tender spots they use to diagnose Fibromyalgia. The inflammation in my body definitely goes with dietary choices as well as weather.


Here is a study that shows the benefits of fish oil helping cancer patients maintain or improve muscle mass. What I found very interesting is that it said that muscle loss in cancer is partly due to the inflammation.
