Natural Treatments that Might Just Help Your Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition where you may feel chronic pain in different, specific areas of your body, such as the legs or your joints.  But fibromyalgia pain isn’t limited to only your legs or your joints; it can plague other areas of the body as well, such as the neck, shoulders and back.  These same people suffering from fibromyalgia may also suffer from secondary symptoms related to their constant fibromyalgia pain, such as depression, stress, irritable bowel syndrome, sleeplessness and nausea.  Fibromyaliga can be a chronic disease which may last for many years, and there currently is not one known cure for this condition. 

St. John’s Wort — St John’s Wort has shown to be successful in treating certain cases of fibromyalgia by reducing tenderness in the affected areas, improving immune system response, as well as reducing pain.  St. John’s works by helping you relax, while loosening tension in the major muscle groups.  St. John’s Wort can be used as a stress reducer and a pain reliever as well.

Siberian Ginseng – Siberian Ginseng can be a great herbal remedy for fibromyalgia and has been used in treating muscle pain for hundreds of years.  Siberian Ginseng has been known to be effective in reducing muscle inflammation, as well as increasing energy and mood in the fibromyalgia patient.  Dosage can be increased with time.

Garlic — Garlic has been known to be very successful in treating many of the symptoms of fibromylagia.  Garlic works the same as a natural antibiotic in the body, enhancing the immune system, and strengthening the body’s reaction to disease.  Garlic can also help to clear the pollutants in the body supply, improving blood circulation and improving muscle and brain function as well.

MSN — MSN is a natural compound that can already be found in the body that can do great things for fibromyalgia suffers.  Many times fibromyalgia sufferers have a deficiency of this natural occurring compound in their bodies, and they no longer can produce adequate amounts for the body to stay healthy.  Some symptoms of MSN deficiency in the body might include random muscle pain, muscle weakness, chronic fatigue.  MSN can be found in many fresh fruits and vegetables, and serves as a natural anti-inflammatory and pain reducer as well.

Yoga — Yoga can be an excellent practice for relieving stress, strengthening and stretching important muscle groups, and maintaining a better balance in life.  But yoga can also do wonders for people who may be suffering from fibromyalgia.  Yoga can help strengthen certain muscle groups affected by the fibromyalgia disease, as well as energize the body by improving circulation and reducing fatigue.  Patients practicing regular regimes of yoga are seen to suffer less pain, and have more improved movement than patients not practicing any form of yoga exercise.
