Fibromyalgia or Fibromyositis

Homeopathic treatment

If you are devastated by symptoms of severe widespread pain and daytime exhaustion and you have been diagnosed for having fibromyalgia, you need not get disappointed as homeopathy is there to help to get rid of the sufferings.

In allopathic or conventional treatment of fibromyalgia pain killers are given which end up giving lot of side effects and not curing the disease at all.

How homeopathy helps:

  • It stabilizes the nervous system and calms the hypersensitivity of nerve tissues.
  • It helps in balancing the functions of your pain-receptor cells, and other biochemical responses of the body to avoid over-stimulation of the nervous system thus reducing pain.
  • It helps in increasing the blood circulation thus relaxing the musculo-skeletal system as the increased circulation cleans up the toxins that cause pain.
  • The treatment helps in strengthening your muscles, ligaments and cartilages.
  • The remedies help in restoring the disturbed immune system, so as to stop it from being indiscriminately hypersensitive.

The homeopathic medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution and so on.

While choosing the remedies the cause of fibromyalgia or fibromyositis is also evaluated such as depression, mental stress, infections, nutritional deficiencies and so on. This is overlooked by the allopathic practitioners.

The allopathic or conventional doctors keep prescribing the pain killers without getting into the root of problem so it is left untreated.

In contrast homeopathy works at the physical as well as the mental plane and hence can be instrumental in giving maximum relief to the patients of fibromyalgia or fibromyositis.

Homeopathy is a science which works on the body as well as the mind of a patient and considers that mind and body are not separate. That is why it can do wonders in cases of fibromyalgia or fibromyositis as mind (stress) plays an important role in triggering the condition. The underlying stress can be effectively handled with treatment. It improves the general immunity and vitality of the patient and also targets the increased sensitiveness to pain that these patients suffer from.

SERCH (Society for the Establishment of Research in Classical Homeopathy) participated in a study investigating the efficacy of homeopathic treatment in fibromyalgia. This was conducted through the University of Arizona. It showed excellent results establishing the efficacy of homeopathy.

There are 54 homeopathy medicines which give great relief in fibromyalgia or fibromyositis. However, the correct choice and the resulting relief is a matter of experience and right judgment on the part of the doctor. The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient. Thus remedies are tailor made unlike allopathy in which all patients receive the same pain killers or drugs although trade name may be different.

What is fibromyalgia or fibromyositis

Fibromyalgia means pain in the muscles, ligaments, and tendons—the soft fibrous tissues of the body without any detectable inflammation. It does not cause body damage or deformity. However, undue fatigue plagues the large majority of patients and sleep disorders are common in fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia is common, with a prevalence of approximately 3% in the general US population, and it is more common in women.

It is closely related to chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), which causes similar symptoms, except that in fibromyalgia, muscle pain predominates over fatigue, whereas in CFS, fatigue predominates over pain.

Causes

  • Immune system problems : Certain immunologic abnormalities are common among people with fibromyalgia. Some suggest that fibromyalgia is the result of toxins accumulating in the muscles from lactic acid build up.
  • Physically unfit muscles.
  • Disturbance in brain chemistry : Many people who develop fibromyalgia have a history of clinical depression.
  • Sleep disturbances or insomnia.
  • Infection with the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), the virus that causes infectious mononucleosis, or with the fungus Candida albicans.
  • Food allergy (dairy products, wheat, fermented foods, and nightshades - potatoes, eggplant (brinjal) - are most common).
  • Emotional stress.
  • Intestinal candida overgrowth.
  • Nutritional deficiencies.
  • Adrenal exhaustion.
  • Chronic mercury poisoning from amalgam dental fillings.
  • Anemia.
  • Hypoglycemia.
  • Hypothyroidism.

Signs & symptoms

  • Widespread pain for more than 3 months.
  • Tenderness in the neck, shoulder, knee, elbow, or upper buttocks or thigh areas.
  • Trouble sleeping.
  • Tiredness : In the morning or late in the day.
  • Mood changes.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome.
  • Headaches, sometimes migraines.
  • Difficulty concentrating.
  • Numbness and tingling in hands, arms, feet, legs or face.
  • Abdominal pain.
  • Bloating.
  • Constipation.
  • Diarrhea.
  • Patients with FMS may feel down, or even mildly depressed, though clinical depression only results in about 25% of people with FMS or fibromyalgia.
  • Some patients experience chronic anxiety and may have a difficult time concentrating.
  • Some patients experience paresthesia, or a numbness and tingling in their hands and feet
  • Sensitivity to light or temperature.

Diagnosis

To meet the fibromyalgia criteria for diagnosis, patients must have:

  • Widespread pain in all four quadrants of their body for a minimum of three months.
  • At least 11 of the 18 specified tender points. The location of the 18 tender points is :
    • (1 & 2) Occiput : on both sides (bilateral), at the sub-occipital muscle insertions.
    • (3 & 4) Low Cervical : bilateral, at the anterior aspects of the inter-transverse spaces.
    • (5 & 6) Lateral Epicondyle : bilateral, 2 cm distal to the epicondyles.
    • (7 & 8) Knee: bilateral, at the medial fat pad proximal to the joint line.
    • (9 & 10) Second Rib : bilateral, at the second costochondral junction, just lateral to the junctions on upper surfaces.
    • (11 & 12) Trapezius : bilateral, at the midpoint of the upper border of the muscle.
    • (13 & 14) Supraspinatus : bilateral, at origins, above the spine of the scapula (shoulder blade) near the medial border.
    • (15 & 16) Gluteal: bilateral, in upper outer quadrants of buttocks in anterior fold of muscle.
    • (17 & 18) Greater Trochanter: bilateral, posterior to the trochanteric prominence.

Diet & home care

There is no specific diet plan to treat fibromyalgia or fibromyositis. Comparatively few diet studies have been undertaken to assess the impact of food on fibromyalgia, and there is no clear evidence indicating that any specific foods improve this complex syndrome.

Also, there is no clear medical evidence that dietary supplements improve symptoms. Indeed, blood and hair tests have revealed no pattern of mineral deficiency in patients. Thus it is misleading to say there is an effective diet to reduce the symptoms of fibromyalgia or fibromyositis. However a well planned diet with the right nutritional supplements will help optimize your health.

In addition there are several therapies involving massage, yoga to give patients relief.

Radish and cranberry juice are some of the effective fruits.

Lemon juice with honey provides temporary relief to patients.

Raw papaya can be taken.

Half teaspoon of turmeric powder taken with warm water is highly effective.
