Fibromyalgia remission is possible with a proper personalized treatment approach. An expert developed four steps of fibromyalgia treatment to achieve fibromyalgia remission through a series of extensive personal and clinical experience. This comprehensive treatment approach was created with the purpose of creating a whole new level of everyday life functionality. It is possible through meaningful improvement of fibromyalgia symptoms.
Step One – Rest
The first refers to Rest. This is the most important of all as it provides foundation for the other steps. Rest is the foundation because it encourages healing. Proper rest requires enlisting a relaxation response and restoring deep sleep. The body’s inability to get enough sleep can wreck havoc in your overall health. Specific combination of supplements and medications helps to supersede the body’s stress response and encourage deep sleep. Restoring deep sleep results in the improvement of pain and fatigue.
Step Two – Repair
After the foundation of Rest is set in place, the next step is Repair. This refers to both nutritional and structural. The chronic hyperactive stress response in fibromyalgia prevents the body from breaking down and absorbing enough nutrients. Thus, the first part of Repair focuses on repairing digestion.
Structurally, the muscles and fascia in most fibromyalgia patients are stick and tight. Therefore, unsticking the fascia in order to lessen the tight and inflamed areas of the body forms the second part Repair. These inflamed areas are often the main source of pain. Hence, movement therapy is highly recommended in order to increase the flow of blood in muscles and joints. This can also lead to the reduction of inflammation and pain in the body.
Movement therapy refers to a wide range of Eastern and Western holistic approach to better physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. There are various form of movement therapy which range from dance therapy, yoga, pilates, taichi, qigong to alexander technique etc.
Step Three – Rebalance
Next step is to rebalance the imbalance of the production of energy in the body. The chronic stress response in the body is actually a state of inefficient energy production. Thus, supporting the energy-producing mitochondria with proper nutrition and supplements can help to minimize fatigue. Furthermore, high levels of inflammation coming from chronic infections and food sensitivities worsen the symptoms of fibromyalgia. Therefore, it is crucial that you address these underlying conditions too.
The adrenal glands tend to burn out from the constant signal of the stress response. Consequently, it leads to abnormal patterns of cortisol release hence fatigue. Hence, it is essential to support your adrenal glands with proper diet, lifestyle changes and supplements. Doing so can help to bring the glands back to proper balance.
Step Four – Reduce
The final step of the treatment is Reduce. This is to reduce any remaining fatigue and pain by treating these symptoms through targeted medication and therapy. After working on the first three steps, the patient should already gain significant improvement in her symptoms. On the final step, medication and some form of therapy can help alleviate any remaining symptoms.
Adopt these four steps in your fibromyalgia treatment to help you manage your condition and hopefully achieve fibromyalgia remission.
