Fibromyalgia (new lat., fibro-, fibrous tissue, Gk. myo-, muscle, Gk. algos-, pain), meaning muscle and connective tissue pain (also referred to
as FM or FMS), is a disorder classified by the presence of chronic widespread pain and a heightened and painful response to gentle touch Other
core features of the disorder include debilitating fatigue, sleep disturbance, and joint stiffness. In addition, persons affected by the disorder
frequently experience a range of other symptoms that involve multiple body systems, including difficulty with swallowing, functional bowel and
bladder abnormalities difficulty with breathing, diffuse sensations of numbness and tingling (non-dermatomal paresthisia) abnormal motor activity
and cognitive dysfunction. An increased prevalence of affective and anxiety-related symptoms is also well known.While the criteria for such an
entity have not yet been thoroughly developed, the recognition that fibromyalgia involves more than just pain has led to the frequent use of the
term "fibromyalgia syndrome". Not all affected persons experience all the symptoms associated with the greater syndrome.
Fibromyalgia is considered a controversial diagnosis, with some authors contending that the disorder is a 'non-disease', due in part to a lack of
abnormalities on physical examination, objective laboratory tests or medical imaging studies to confirm the diagnosis. While historically
considered either a musculoskeletal disease or neuropsychiatric condition, evidence from research conducted in the last three decades has
revealed abnormalities within the central nervous system affecting brain regions that may be linked both to clinical symptoms and research
phenomena. Although there is as yet no generally accepted cure for fibromyalgia, there are treatments that have been demonstrated by
controlled clinical trials to be effective in reducing symptoms, including medications, patient education, exercise, and behavioral interventions.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Fibromyalgia, Cause and Cure
As fibromyalgia appears to be such a mysterious yet painfully debilitating disorder, I personally feel that the cause of this still unrecognized
disease, is very important to understand. The holistic cure of any disease and particularly this one, is invariably heightened by understanding the
underlining cause. The following lengthy but enlightening article, very effectively elaborates on what I believe to be the most likely cause of chronic
fatigue syndrome, and it's sister disease fibromyalgia.
THE CAUSE OF FIBROMYALGIA
by Jason A. Uttley
"Fluoridation could turn out to be one of the top 10 mistakes of the 21st century."
Dr. Hardy Limeback
National Research Council, 2006 Review of Fluoride Toxicity
For more than fifty years the words "chronic fatigue" have been synonymous with the first stage of a condition known as systemic fluorosis, or
chronic fluoride poisoning.
By contrast, only a handful of the world's leading experts on fluoride toxicity have long been aware that the symptoms of the emerging condition
known as "fibromyalgia" exactly match those of the most severe form of fluoride poisoning. This little known fact was quietly highlighted by the
intense focus on potential Sarin gas exposure for the nearly 200,000 veterans of the first Gulf War who have quietly become the largest single
group to ever develop fibromyalgia. Despite the lack of evidence of mass exposure, it remained telling that the top authorities on a nerve gas
known to derive all of its toxicity from fluoride proved they could not tell the difference between the lingering effects of Sarin exposure and the
symptoms of fibromyalgia. While the majority of veterans blamed the preventative medications they'd been forced to take as the source of their
illness, fearful military leaders shifted the focus away from those drugs so quickly that few seemed to notice that Sarin gas was not the only
potential source of toxic fluoride exposure. Only as more and more veterans developed fibromyalgia and its related conditions in the years since
the end of the 1991 Gulf War, including many who did not even leave the U.S. mainland, have those soldiers and committed researchers been
able to slowly pressure the military to focus attention back on those drugs.
The VA now stands at the center of the fibromyalgia controversy, attempting to explain to the medical community...
How the seemingly harmless sounding chronic fatigue syndrome relates to fibromyalgia, a condition that eventually cripples most of those who
develop it with a laundry list of debilitating symptoms including: brain fog, severe muscle & joint pain, thyroid dysfunction, muscle spasms,
numbness, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel, hair loss, vision problems, spinal & cranial calcification & kidney dysfunction?
What hundreds of thousands of largely male veterans might have in common with the estimated 8-10 million Americans, mostly women, who
have now developed a crippling condition that seemed to emerge out of nowhere in the early 1980's?
When I developed my case of fibromyalgia from 2 months of Cipro, a widely popular fluorinated antibiotic that is normally prescribed for 7-10 days
at a time, no one really knew why I'd become sick. But that changed in late 2001, when many of the key questions regarding fibromyalgia were
unexpectedly answered. For as a few anthrax-laced letters made their way into the U.S. mail system, thirty thousand people were suddenly put
on 2 months of that very same medication. While most had not been exposed to anthrax, the CDC encouraged that Cipro be used for an
extended course as a purely precautionary measure. However, as the medical community closely monitored those individuals, they began to
notice the appearance of disturbing side effects. So severe and so widespread were those side effects in fact, that many were openly encouraged
to stop taking the drug and switch to a "safer" medication.
For a drug that had been prescribed over 200 million times, largely to women with urinary tract infections, the medical community was at a loss
to explain why the extended treatment seemed to lead to such a widespread reaction. Things only worsened over time though. Among those who
had stopped taking the medication, many began to realize that their so-called side effects were actually permanent. And even more remarkably,
many months after the treatment, it was observed that everyone of those sampled that had completed the full two month treatment appeared to
develop those same, permanent, crippling symptoms; symptoms that exactly match those of the emerging condition known as fibromyalgia.
Not an allergic drug reaction as it turned out, but rather a universal toxic reaction to a fluoride based compound known as fluorophenyl. The same
compound found in the now infamous cholesterol-lowering drug Baycol and weight-reducing drug, Fen-Phen. While the impact of Fen-Phen on the
heart muscle consumed most of the focus back in 1997, some fibromyalgia groups have since tried to bring attention to the fact that the drug
also appeared to be linked to fibromyalgia and its related conditions. Such a connection was highlighted for me when I met one of the
longstanding support group leaders of the Minnesota Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Fibromyalgia Assoc., who had developed her disabling case of
fibromyalgia (which eventually put her in a wheelchair) after an extended treatment of Fen-Phen.
Of course, when the fluorinated drug Fen-Phen was taken off the market in Sept of 1997, very little attention was paid to the fact that the non-
fluorinated version of the same drug remained on the market. Nor was much attention paid to the fact that just months before, in April of 1997, the
FDA had forced toothpaste manufacturers to dramatically upgrade their warning labels after suddenly "discovering" that fluoride was severely
neurotoxic. EPA scientists in Washington D.C. quickly followed the unpublicized FDA action by calling for an immediate end to the practice of
adding fluoride to the water supply, writing in their official letter of opposition that, "Like most Americans, including many physicians and dentists,
most of our members had thought that fluoride's only effects were beneficial - reductions in tooth decay, etc. ... We are [now] compelled to
consider the likelihood that humans are experiencing damage to their brains and kidneys at the 'optimal' level of 1ppm."
Already deeply concerned over studies demonstrating fluoride's considerable power to mutate genes, EPA scientists began to move aggressively
against the controversial additive they had long supported after learning that one of the most prestigious dental research centers in the U.S., the
Harvard-affiliated Forsyth Institute, had recently proven that fluoride was also severely neurotoxic. As similar studies appeared to confirm those
disturbing findings, investigative journalist Joel Griffiths would inform Forsyth's noted neurotoxicologist-turned whistleblower, Phyllis J. Mullenix,
that her so-called discovery was not in fact a discovery at all. For not only had the 20th century's top experts on fluoride toxicity, Kaj Roholm &
George Waldbott, long warned of fluoride's severe central nervous system effects, but recently declassified documents revealed that the original
champion of fluoridation, Harold C. Hodge, one of America's most influential toxicologists, who in his final days guided every step of Mullenix's
research, had long ago buried evidence demonstrating the extreme neurotoxicity of fluoride himself.
The startling documents, uncovered by journalists in the wake of a 1995 presidential investigation, revealed that while supervising the injection of
toxic doses of radioactive plutonium into unsuspecting hospital patients to gauge its effect on the human body (as Director of Toxicology for the
Manhattan Project), Hodge had simultaneously championed the idea of dumping toxic fluoride waste into the water supply under the guise of
protecting children's teeth. Only, with millions of tons of fluoride waste generated from the enriching of uranium, Hodge's only concern had been to
find a way to dispose of the massive amounts of fluoride required to make nuclear weapons. With the threat of an arms race already looming,
Hodge invited the research labs of major industrial fluoride polluters to help cover up evidence of fluoride's extreme toxicity, including its central
nervous system effects, all in the interest of "national security." On January 25, 1945, five days after the uranium diffusion plant in Oak Ridge,
Tennessee became fully operational, Hodge achieved his secret objective, as Grand Rapids, Michigan officially became the first city on earth to
be artificially fluoridated.
In August of 2005, just months after journalist Chris Bryson's landmark book "The Fluoride Deception" revealed new evidence of buried research
by the men who had supposedly proven fluoride's safety on behalf of the dental community, 11 EPA unions, representing more than 7000 public
health toxicologists, chemists and other scientists, joined forces to call for a nationwide moratorium on fluoridation and a congressional
investigation into its adverse effects. With alarm over the brain and kidney damaging effects of fluoride growing, concerned scientists have begun
to observe how closely the symptoms of fibromyalgia and its related conditions appear to match the symptoms of chronic fluoride poisoning.
While few paid much attention to the list of symptoms described by Dr. George Waldbott, M.D., the founder of the International Society of
Fluoride Research and corresponding scientific journal "Fluoride", when his 1978 book "Fluoridation: The Great Dilemma" was first published,
those familiar with the fibromyalgia related conditions have been struck by the apparent connection.
The following unedited symptoms of chronic fluoride poisoning, authored by the leading authority on fluoride toxicity only a few years before the
first mass cases of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia were reported, appear on page 393 of the book "Fluoridation: The Great

(See Reference Image: Image is of Page 393 of George Waldbott's 1978 book "Fluoridation: The Great Dilemma", which was written in
collaboration with Albert W. Burgstahler, PhD and H. Lewis McKinney, PhD. Waldbott was the founder of the International Society of Fluoride
Research and the "Fluoride" science journal. Waldbott was regarded as one of the 20th century's top experts in fluoride toxicity.)
Thanks to medical specialization and the often-slow progression of symptoms, those who develop most of the major symptoms of chronic fluoride
poisoning and are eventually diagnosed with "fibromyalgia", frequently share the experience of being treated like hypochondriacs, as one
symptom after the next emerge, are diagnosed & treated separately by physicians. As a result, by the time the condition advances to include
nearly the entire list of symptoms (including debilitating "brain fog", or what Waldbott termed the "loss of mental acuity and ability to
concentrate"), the fibromyalgia diagnosis has often been preceded by such labels as "chronic fatigue syndrome", "depression", "hypothyroidism",
"irritable bladder", "irritable bowel syndrome", "multiple chemical sensitivity syndrome", and "myofascial pain syndrome", among others. Labels
aside, whether or not those who suffer from fibromyalgia have been officially diagnosed with each of these related conditions, the overwhelming
majority have symptoms of each and therefore understand from experience that they are all elements of a single underlying condition.
Although the relative newness of fibromyalgia and many of its related conditions are often debated, what is not is that medical specialists began
observing their sudden widespread appearance beginning in the early 1980's. In fact, so dramatically did the number of those suffering from the
most debilitating symptoms ramp up, that by the end of the decade, Frederick Wolfe and the other leading rheumatologists who had only just
gathered to define "fibromyalgia" a few years earlier, abruptly went their separate ways under mounting pressure to explain its sudden
emergence. While the focus of the fluoride controversy has long been centered on the water supply, the anthrax letters of 2001 demonstrated how
highly toxic forms of fluoride now available in select prescription drugs may be playing a considerable role in the emerging epidemic. For if a
fluorinated antibiotic like Cipro (in a drug class developed in the early 1980's), can universally induce what is essentially the most severe form of
fluoride poisoning in just 2 months, imagine how far down the road all those women are who have consumed mere weeks of the widely popular
All this brings to mind the key objection of the 14 Nobel Prize winners in Chemistry & Medicine, including the 2000 Nobel Laureate for Medicine,
Arvid Carlsson, that have warned against the practice of dumping fluoride waste into the nation's water supply. For even before fluoride was known
to be severely neurotoxic by more than a handful of experts, some of world's top scientists expressed grave concerns about the potential long-
term damage that might result from adding the powerful enzyme poison to any substance that might be ingested, given its ability to accumulate
in the human body. Ironically, not only have such warnings not been heeded, but it is precisely because of fluoride's cumulative nature that it has
been increasingly added to prescription drugs. In adding an element that does not tend to leave the body, fluorinated drugs become significantly
more potent than their non-fluorinated counterparts.
However, as the leading experts in fluoride toxicity have cautioned for decades, there is also a huge risk in adding even minute quantities of
fluoride to each new drug. For not only do they add to the already dangerous levels of the cumulative neurotoxin in our diet, but it is entirely
possible that certain prescription drugs could potentially fragment within the human body and reform hyper-toxic fluoride compounds, such as
fluoro acetate. Given that there is a well-known delayed reaction between the point such forms of fluoride enter the body (or are formed in the
body), and when symptoms begin, each new drug represents a potential time bomb; a truly nightmarish scenario made infinitely more likely with
an FDA run by Wall Street analysts, appointed specifically to fast track drugs and allow drug companies not to have to monitor their long-term,
chronic toxicity. That there was a delayed reaction in the onset of symptoms for most veterans of the first Gulf War, as well as the victims of the
anthrax letters treated with Cipro, it seems increasingly likely that fibromyalgia represents just such a worst-case scenario.
Regardless of the specific form of fluoride involved though, perhaps the most compelling evidence linking fluoride to the cause of fibromyalgia may
actually be reflected in the work of a few leading fibromyalgia researchers, who have unknowingly been uncovering key elements of chronic
fluoride poisoning that have long been the focus of the top experts in fluoride toxicity....
1.R. Paul St. Amand - with EPA scientists focused on the brain and kidney damaging effects of fluoride, this leading fibromyalgia researcher
discovered guaifenisen as a treatment for fibromyalgia (and all its related conditions) after observing that every case appeared to be linked to a
dysfunction of the kidney tubules. In treating thousands of patients, St. Amand has effectively proven what the top expert in fluoride toxicity, Kaj
Roholm, suggested long ago in his definitive reference guide "Fluorine Intoxication", which is that the kidneys lay at the root of nearly all the
crippling symptoms, including the severe cognitive impairment termed "brain fog."
2.Michael J. Rosner - the fibromyalgia researcher who pioneered the highly controversial surgery to remove spinal and cranial calcifications
(where fluoride is well known to accumulate) that frequently develop in those with advanced cases of fibromyalgia. Promoted by groups like the
National Fibromyalgia Research Association, this element of fibromyalgia mirrors what is arguably the most unique element of extreme chronic
fluoride poisoning, known to experts in fluoride toxicity as "skeletal fluorosis.” (See 2nd and 3rd phase changes to the osseous system on page
142 of Roholm's "Fluorine Intoxication" for a complete description)
* Garth and Nancy Nicolson - renowned immunologists who began studying fibromyalgia when their daughter returned home from Iraq at the end
of the first Gulf War complaining of symptoms. In developing the highly sophisticated mycoplasma test, the Nicolsons demonstrated that immune
dysfunction was a key component of fibromyalgia. Discovered that male veterans afflicted with the condition appeared to spread fibromyalgia
sexually to their female partners through an unusually high incidence of recurring urinary tract infections. Presumably unaware of the potential
connection to fluorinated antibiotics, the Nicolsons went on an unsuccessful search for a potential contagious biological agent that might be able
to explain the rapid rise in fibromyalgia.
Ultimately, I know from experience that those suffering from the "brain fog" associated with fibromyalgia may have great difficulty comprehending
what I have written here. To those people I say, you really only need to know one thing about the connection between fluoride & fibromyalgia, and
that is this: if fluoride is indeed the cause of your condition, you will see a dramatic improvement in your symptoms simply by minimizing your
exposure to fluoride. In this way, you can not only prove or disprove the cause of your condition, but even potentially make yourself better at the
very same time. In my case, it was only by avoiding...(a) fluorinated drugs [those with "fl" in the chemical name], (b) fluorinated vitamins &
supplements [even residual exposure to fluoride from other ingredients, such as those in many multi vitamins], (c) fluoridated water [using only
distilled, reverse osmosis water instead], (d) fluoride-rich foods [i.e. tea, foods with water added, etc.), and to a lesser extent, (e) fluoride-based
pesticides (i.e. sulfuryl fluoride)...that I was able to reduce how fast fluoride built up in my bloodstream and induced my symptoms of
Today, I know I owe my very life to whistle blowers like Dr. Phyllis Mullenix. While the noted neurotoxicologist only highlighted one particular
element of fluoride poisoning, it was a critical one that allowed EPA scientists and others to begin to open their eyes to the growing body of
independent scientific research that has slowly begun to expose "fibromyalgia", "chronic fatigue syndrome", and a variety of related conditions,
as merely labels for the various symptoms, or stages, of chronic fluoride poisoning. Dr. Don Goldenberg, the noted rheumatologist who first
introduced fibromyalgia to much of the medical community with his 1987 article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), once
wrote of fibromyalgia, "We should concentrate on treating the symptoms of chronic illness, not searching for a cause." His statement mirrors the
current mindset of much of the medical community, who offer to treat the myriad of debilitating symptoms related to fibromyalgia as if they are
wholly unrelated to one another, as if the cause doesn't matter. Well, I can tell you from experience, the cause certainly does matter.
Unconventional Cures For Fibromyalgia Symptoms
Fibromyalgia although a very serious condition symptomatically speaking, appears to be one of the easier chronic diseases to overcome
holistically, once the appropriate measures are undertaken. A proper diet and regular exercise, after some preliminary cleanses and specific
holistic protocols, accompanied by strict avoidance of fluoride in all of it's pervasive manifestations, appears to be sufficient to guarantee it's
victims a full and permanent recovery. In practically all cases of fybromyalgia the immune system has been compromised, and nothing can aid in
strengthening the immune system as rapidly as the elemental miracle, which has been frequently credited with turning around severe cases of
fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
I must comment that if you haven't begun using the elemental miracle you should, as it is the the most powerful natural antiviral known to man,
and has a very strong track record for eliminating fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome symptoms. Also as with all diseases, the more ph
balanced the body becomes, the more effective antivirals are able to be. The elemental miracle is the most potent cleansing agent for heavy
metals and other such acidic loving, unwanted anaerobic presences.
Optimum Diet And Recommended Supplements For Fibromyalgia:
Foods To be Avoided
There is a pain receptor in the nervous system known as NMDA. When pain turns from acute to chronic, it involves opening the NMDA pain
receptor. Aspartame, which is classified as an excitotoxin, helps stimulate this to happen. People with fibromyalgia appear to already have overly
active NMDA pain receptors, making them even more susceptible to the stimulation.
Food additives including MSG (monosodium glutamine) and nitrates. MSG is an additive or flavor enhancer that's found in many processed and
frozen foods, and in some Asian cuisines. It's presence in the majority of most prepackaged foods is disguised by a number of quaint titles such
as “natural flavors” etc. Experts say it can intensify pain symptoms in many individuals. Like aspartame, MSG is classified as an excitotoxin and
has the same potential for affecting NMDA receptors.
The same concern is also there in the case for foods containing preservatives such as nitrates, commonly found in lunch meats like ham,
bologna, or in bacon.
Sugar, fructose, and simple carbohydrates There is no clear evidence that cutting out simple carbohydrates such as sugar, cake, or white bread
will necessarily have an impact on fibromyalgia. What can happen however, is it will reduce symptoms of chronic yeast infection, which is a
fungus that thrives on sugars and is thought to be a secondary condition contributing to the pain of fibromyalgia.
Caffeine - including coffee, tea, colas, and chocolate. Because it is considered a stimulant, many fibromyalgia patients turn to caffeine rich
beverages as a source of energy. The problem with caffeine is that the 'up' is relatively brief, and it is almost always followed by a much longer
and deeper sedative effect. Many persons have reported relief from fibromyalgia symptoms almost immediately upon eliminating caffeine from
Yeast and gluten Although these are two separate food substances, they frequently appear together, particularly in baked goods like cake,
donuts, and bread. For this reason, cutting out one, usually means you are cutting out both, which can actually yield two separate benefits for
people with fibromyalgia.
In the case of yeast it causes the overgrowth of the yeast fungus in the body. This overgrowth may cause or exacerbate much of the joint and
muscle pain experienced by people with fibromyalgia.
Gluten magnifies a condition known as gluten intolerance. Avoiding glutten products can produce enormous positive changes in people suffering
from the symptoms of fibromyalgia.
High Fat Dairy Many experts say that high fat dairy products and in particular milk, have been known to stimulate fibromyalgia symptoms.
Avoiding these products may help some people turn their health around, however if they feel that dairy is not producing any noticeable adverse
reactions, then they should continue using them as they are a beneficial source of many important nutrients.
Nightshade Plants: Tomatoes, chili, bell peppers, potatoes, and eggplant The elimination of this category of vegetables has been noted to
relieve fibromyalgia symptoms in a large percentage of fibromyalgia patients. They have also been recognized to trigger symptoms in certain
types of arthritis, although the reason is still unknown. If a person sees that they don't produce a problem however, then they can still be used as
they are very nutritious.
Other things to avoid would be fried foods, soda pop or any carbonated beverages. All forms of junk food or any food containing preservatives. Red
meat along with alcoholic beverages and all forms of tobacco, should be excluded for those struggling to become free from the symptoms of
fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. It is also recommended for those with fibromyalgia not to drink liquid with meals, or become overly
exposed to direct sunlight. I hate being the bearer of bad news as most people with fibromyalgia are chocoholics, but it is strongly recommended
that they also not eat any chocolate.
Recommended Diet For Fibromyalgia
One study published in the journal Complementary and Alternative Medicine in 2001 found that patients who ate a vegetarian diet consisting of
mostly raw fruits and vegetables, did see a reduction in their fibromyalgia symptoms. Basically an optimum diet for fybromyalgia should be the
same as the one followed for those seeking a healthy heart. There is little information available from scientific research on nutrition and diet for the
victims of Fibromyalgia. Obviously since there is nothing scientifically proven about which specific foods affect Fibromyalgia, in either positive or
negative ways, all of the information here has been gathered from the personal statements of fibromyalgia sufferers themselves. However common
sense dictates that eating healthy foods including those low in fat and high in immunity boosting antioxidants and phytochemicals are the correct
choice. Such foods besides providing the best nutritional alternative, also work together to provide maximize energy and alertness, and to help
minimize the constant fatigue and lethargy that plagues virtually all of those who suffer from this plague. There are plenty of real life instances of
people who have overcome their fibromyalgia symptoms simply by changing their diets and lifestyle, so be patient and persevere. You will
succeed! Basically an optimum diet would be comprised of mostly raw fruits and vegetables. For an excellent source for information on eating a
raw food diet you can go here. http://www.therawdiet.com/ebook.html There is plenty of information and lots of recipes available on line regarding
eating “raw,” if you would prefer to make your own search. Also food allergies are extremely prevalent amongst those with fibromyalgia, and there
are many recorded cases of those who got relief, by identifying and avoiding the offending foods. You can discover your own food sensitivities by
eliminating foods that trigger pain. Keeping a food diary is helpful. In your diary write down everything that goes into your mouth, and at the same
time track your Fibromyalgia pain. By comparing the two you can understand which foods trigger allergies or pain. It has been found that food
allergies also undermine nutrient consumption. In the end result you have to be the one to determine which dietary plan works best for you. There
is an e-book that gives plenty of information about diet and fibromyalgia, as well as many ways to become free from it altogether at the following
There have been many testimonials from former fibromyalgia suferers that healed their condition simply by introducing some, or a combination of
all, of the following supplements into their diets. Be somewhat cautious when using multiple supplements simultaneously. Research them
properly first and spread them out over the day, taking them according to any accompanying recommendations.
For helping with fibromyalgia pain try this:
magnesium 400 mg. plus malic acid 600 mg. 3 times a day. Take the last dose at bedtime. Take the malic acid with at least a _ tsp. of baking
soda in water, to reduce acidity.
For assisting in overall fibromyalgia symptoms try these:
L-Lysine 2 grams 2,000 mgs. 4 times a day taken at alternate times
Another excellent choice is to take 5htp along with Calcium. 5Htp stimulates seratonin production among other benefits. Although 5-HTP is
beneficial by itself it can be further enhanced by the following combination. 5-HTP (100 mg) St. John's wort extract (300 mg 0.3-percent hypericin
content), and magnesium (150 to 250 mg) take three times per day. There have been some concerns about the safety of 5-HTP and so it would
be advisable to fully research them before beginning this program.
The herb Rhodiola and also CoQ10, both have the ability to enhance cellular energy production. Persons with fibromyalgia are weakened by a
decline in ATP production, which can be stimulated by CoQ10 and also by Rhodiola. Taking them both could prove quite effective.
The herb Echinacea has been known to help with fibromyalgia symptoms.
A good probiotic taken after meals can go a long way to helping those with fibromyalga. As can also MSM. Both are helpful in balancing
beneficial flora in the intestines. MSM has the advantage of assisting in stripping away candida biofilms in the intestinal tract. Of course that is
what the elemental miracle does best. Throughout the entire body!
