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:

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

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

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.

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.

Welcome
to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

Weather can mean debilitating joint and muscle pain for some folks. Even cancer and depression or Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD can be caused by lack of sunlight.

I started writing an article in the spring about pain and weather when I was going through a really painful time but I never posted it. Now that the weather is changing once again I thought it was a good time to dig it back out and bring it to life.

There are thousands of people who experience severe and fatiguing pain with weather changes such as snow and rain. Most call it arthritis. I live in the North and we seem to suffer with a lot of arthritic and painful conditions. There is a lot of cancer as well with lots of evidence piling up that is pointing to a lack of Vitamin D due to months with no sun exposure. We also know that lack of sun can lead to SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder. So for those who experience winter blues or depression as well as pain or cancer patients, it seems like Vitamin D is the way to go. Why take an antidepressant when you are actually deficient in Vitamin D? There is a blood test, it would be a good idea to get it checked if you suffer from cancer or depression in the winter months. Make sure you get a good quality product if you do, you don’t want any extra toxins with your Vitamin D. If you see the sun, get out in it for 10-20 minutes if at all possible, expose your face and hands at least if you can, the more skin the better.

I have made a self discovery about my joint pain that I would
like to share with you. Some days I can barely get around from
unbearable pain in my whole body and it leaves me in debilitating fatigue. I really can’t function.

I have heard for years that the barometric pressure and rain has something to do with pain in joints and muscles but sometimes it was raining and I didn’t feel the same pain, sometimes it wasn’t raining and I was feeling the same pain. It wasn’t consistent.

Here is what I wrote in the spring. I have been watching the pressure and humidity for the past few weeks. To my discovery, it isn’t the barometric pressure, it is the humidity level. The humidity was at 92% and I was like a 90 year old woman crippled up in debilitating and fatiguing pain. It is unbelievable how the weather can put you in a crippling state unless you experience it, you probably wouldn’t believe it. The next day it was 80% and the sun was shining, I was a totally different person. Almost like a Dr Jeckle and
Mr Hyde thing going on there only it is playing with your body instead of your mind.  : )

So for those of you who live in humid places and have joint pain, you know what I am talking about. My goal is to find
an answer to what we can do to avoid the pain in humid days. If anyone has some advice besides moving to another country please feel free to share.

Since writing that article, I have been digging into some facts myself. For one thing, if I eat a lot of mucous forming foods, it will increase the inflammation. Dairy, wheat and beef are mucous causing foods to A blood type, it is so in me. The book one man’s food is another man’s poison is an excellent read on blood types and food. Worth picking up!

The newest discovery, (or perhaps an old discover being re-introduced because of early skepticism), which makes sense talks about how shifts in the earths magnetic fields are causing pain and how a type of clothing can help reduce or eliminate the pain. A brilliant German scientist named Frieder Kempe, later Canadian discovered an electromagnetic shielding fabric called Farabloc that could end pain. How could pain killers or anti-inflammatories possibly help without taking out the contributing factors? No profits perhaps?

Why are we letting our people suffer?

This appears in chinese so I have no idea of pricing or ordering.

Found a source but they are very expensive but so is prescriptions in a chronic pain condition.
