If y ou are experiencing aches all over your body and you feel tired all the time, after various tests your doctor is
unable t o identify any cause then you possibly are suffering from a health condition called Fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain illness characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, and multiple tender body
points including the neck, shoulders, chest, back, hips, upper and lower extremities--where the pain is felt in
response to slight est pressure. The pain can be so severe that it may significantly limit a pers on’s ability to work
and perform everyday tasks. There are other medical problems that are often confused with Fibromyalgia, s uch as
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Thyroid disease, Myofascial pain syndrome, Lyme disease or Mononucleosis.


Symptom s of Fibromyalgia:
   Fatigue.
   Pain that changes intensity.
   Multiple tender points.
   Sleep disturbances.
   Morning stiffness.
   Chronic headaches and jaw pain.
   Irritable bowel syndrome.
   Excessively painful menstrual periods.
   Numbness and tingling sensation in hands and feet.
   Restless legs syndrome.
   Reduced exercise tolerance.
   Sensitiveness to odors, noises, weather, light, touch.
   Skin sensitivity and rashes.
   Cognitive and memory problems.
   Impaired co-ordination.
   Anxiety, depression.
   Ringing in the ears and dizziness.


Causes: The cause of Fibromyalgia is not known, but there are probably multiple factors involved.
   Physical or emotional stress or traumatic events like an automobile accident.
   Repetitive injuries.
   It can run in families.
   It can develop secondary to rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis (spinal arthritis), or systemic lupus
    erythematosus. Although Fibromyalgia is often considered an art hritis related condition, it is not truly a form of
    arthritis because it does not cause inflammation or damage to the joints, muscles, or other tissues.


Homeopathic approach to Fibromyalgia:
At present, in conventional medicine there is no specific treatment for Fibromyalgia other than Analgesics,
Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs, Antidepressants and sleep medication. Homeopathy is the only form of
treatment that has shown an overwhelming positive response in treating Fibromyalgia. Constitutionally prescribed
Homeopathic remedies can effectively and permanently reduce pain and other symptoms of Fibromyalgia.
Homeopathic medicines treat by strengthening our vital force whic h is an intelligent energy principle in our body
that balances many functions and provides protection from illness. In case of an illness, the symptoms are the
signals or the outcry of the Vital Force for the help. A Homeopathic medicine decodes them with its nat ural and
holistic remedial powers and attains CURE.
Homeopathic treatment being based on the hypothesis of "like cure s like" and a deep emphasis on the principles
of holistic medicine (treat the whole person), its remedies work by stimulating the body's own healing power by
introducing tiny doses of natural substances that stimulates a person's immune system and defense syst em to
correct itself naturally. Due to the individualized approach of Homeopathy a remedy which matches all of your
symptoms will stimulate your vital forc e to restore balance and health.
The appropriate Homeopathic treatment for Fibromyalgia depends on the individual's constitutional type. A
constitutional type is defined as a pers on's physical, emotional, and psychological makeup. An experienc ed
Homeopath assesses all of thes e factors when det ermining the most appropriate remedy for each individual.
Along with Homeopat hic medications these are the few things you can do to minimize the impact of Fibromyalgia in
your life.
   Get at least eight hours of sleep a night.
   Eat a well nut ritious diet that gives you more energy and makes you generally feel better.
   Eat several small meals during the day to keep a steady supply of protein and carbohydrate available for proper
    muscle function.
   Maintain a healthy lifestyle.
   Exercising regularly.
   Make changes at work
   Pace yourself.
   Take hot bat hs or showers to soothe soreness, increase circulation, and relieve stiffness.
