Top 5 Fibromyalgia Pain Reliefs Home Remedies


images (8)Fibromyalgia, also known as fibrositis or fibromyositis, is a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain. It is far more common in women than men. The exact cause of fibromyalgia is still unclear. Symptoms of fibromyalgia include but are not limited to tenderness, stiffness, unbearable pain, chronic tiredness, gastrointestinal problems, sleep disorder problems, concentration problems, depression and anxiety.

122 Physicians usually diagnose someone with fibromyalgia if they show positive reactions to 11 of 18 specific tender areas of the body. For a disease with no known cause, fibromyalgia affects a lot of people, at least 5 million in the US alone. That is about an estimated 2-4% of the population. Now, what is strange about fibromyalgia is that it seems to affect more women than women. 9 out of 10 people who reportedly suffer from fibromyalgia are female. Those suffering from this condition also tend to have migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, sleep disorders, anxiety and depression.

Fibromyalgia is not easy to treat as there is no definitive cure. The main goal of treatment is to relieve symptoms. This can be done with medicines as well as complementary treatment and natural remedies.

Here, we are looking at the top five home remedies for this chronic pain disorder.

  1. Yoga and Meditation

home-remedies-for-fibromyalgia-revRelaxation techniques, such as yoga, tai chi, meditation and deep breathing, can be of great help in controlling fibromyalgia symptoms. According to a 2010 study by Oregon Health & Science University researchers, yoga can help combat fibromyalgia symptoms like pain, stiffness, fatigue, poor sleep, poor memory, anxiety, depression and poor balance. In 2011, Canadian researchers at York University found that a 75-minute hatha yoga class twice weekly for eight weeks helped increase cortisol levels in female participants with fibromyalgia, thus reducing pain and improving mindfulness. Those suffering from fibromyalgia tend to have lower than normal levels of the hormone cortisol.

  • Practice yoga for 20 to 40 minutes daily.
  • Join a tai chi class.
  • Do mindfulness meditation for 20 to 30 minutes daily.
  • Deep relaxation techniques like progressive muscle relaxation and guided imagery may also help

  • Taking part in a long-term exercise program has been found to be effective in reducing fibromyalgia symptoms. It prevents muscle wasting and restores the body’s neurochemical balance that boosts the levels of pain-fighting chemicals called endorphins. It also triggers a positive emotional state and reduces stress.
  • Start with about 20 minutes of low-impact exercises 3 times a week, and then increase the duration and frequency. These may include walking, seated exercises, strength exercises, flexibility exercises, balance exercises and water aerobics. Range-of-motion, strengthening and aerobic conditioning exercises are safe for most patients.
  • It is suggested to begin with mild exercise and go slow to keep symptoms from flaring up. For example, you can start with some stretching and regular activities like taking the stairs, gardening or doing chores and gradually move to steady exercise.
  • Keep in mind that although the pain and fatigue may make exercise difficult, it is imperative to be physically active.
    1. Acupressure and Acupuncture

images (1)Acupressure and acupuncture help control fibromyalgia symptoms by restoring the levels of vital energy that flow through energy pathways in the body and changing the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain and spinal cord. In addition to alleviating pain, these therapies also induce relaxation and increase anxiety.

  • Depending on your symptoms and the location of your tender points, gently press the sensitive trigger points for a few seconds. You can also rub the trigger points in tiny circles lightly without applying pressure.
  • Ask your doctor, neurologist, or physical therapist to suggest a qualified acupuncturist or acupressurist who can select appropriate acupuncture points for your treatment based on your symptoms and qi energy.

For best results, combine acupressure and acupuncture with meditation, exercise, massage and other therapies.

  1. Massage

Massage therapy helps relax your muscles and improve the range of motion in your joints. It also relieves stress and stimulates production of chemicals that act as the body’s natural painkillers. A type of massage called manual lymph drainage therapy (MLDT) is also beneficial for fibromyalgia. It loosens up lymph blockages that could be contributing to the pain. For best results, get your massage done by a massage therapist who has experience with fibromyalgia.

  1. Stress and Anxiety Patch:

Stress and anxiety are among the symptoms of fibromyalgia. This patch is designed to reduce everyday stress and anxiety related to fibromyalgia or others. The distinction between stress and anxiety is that stress is a response to a threat in a situation and anxiety is a reaction to the stress. We all experience stress in our daily life. The first stress we overcome every day is waking up in the morning. This patch will go a long way in treating your fibromyalgia symptoms

    I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia around 6 years ago although I’m certain I have had it much longer than that. I have suffered from sleeplessness, joint stiffness, severe pains, depression and fatigue. My neurologist prescribed duloxetin 40mg daily (Given as 20mg twice daily), although it did relieve some of the pain, I still suffered from joint stiffness and extreme fatigue. Finally, i started on Fibromyalgia herbal formula i ordered from NewLife Herbal Clinic, this herbal formula did the magic! almost immediately i started usage, i started noticing a general reduction of symptoms including the very severe pains and fatigue. 9 weeks into usage, the disease has totally succumbed to this herbal treatment. The whole pains and terrible fatigue has seized and i am now able to function fully well again. I’m able to get out of bed in the morning and have more energy to go about my daily activities.

    I have had fibromyalgia for at least 30 years. My initial symptoms were fatigue and lower back pain which were manageable, and I also became sensitive to hot and cold. I’m a 69 year old male working but struggling with pain. It really kicked in in 1999 with widespread pain and extreme fatigue. I went on to develop pneumonia and during my stay in hospital had all the tests which came back positive with just minor wear and tear to my lumber region. I was discharged and told to get on with it and fought my way back to some kind of fitness again. I then had a breakdown and was admitted to a psychiatric ward following a botched suicide attempt. Somehow I clawed my way back to normality but as always the underlying issues were always there. Around 2012 I had another flare up with all the usual issues but this time my skin became sensitive around the back of my neck. Lots of tests over a 12 month period and again everything was positive. During this period I managed to work but, and just about hold my job down. I decided to find a permanent cure ,so one day i saw so many post about perfecthealthherbalmedicinehome,a women posted she was cured totally from fibromyalgia with the help of perfecthealthherbalmedicine,i was so impressed by the post,so i decided to purchase the herbal medicine for fibromyalgia,i receive the herbal medicine within 2 days ,i was told to use the herbal medicine twice daily for 6 weeks,which i did ,after 6 weeks of usage i was free from fatigue ,lower back pain,and all the symptoms disappeared ,now am totally free from fibromyalgia,

    My mother have been suffering from fibromyalgia disease for the last 3 years and had constant pain, especially in her neck,During the first year,she had faith in God that she will be healed someday by the Almighty.

    This disease started circulate all over my moms body and she have been taking treatment from her doctor, few weeks ago i came on search on the internet if i could get any information concerning the prevention of this disease, on my search i saw a testimony of someone who has been healed from (fibromyalgia) by this man DR Abumere and she also gave the email address of this man and advise we should contact him for any sickness that he would be of help, so i wrote to DR Abumere telling him about my mothers fibromyalgia disease he told me not to worry that my mom is gonna be okay with his herbal remedies!!

    That is how I found the Pain Patch on National Remedies.

    I never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man i went to discuss it with my mom and explain everything to her on what she is about to take in,because Dr Abumere told me my mother must stop other medication just to make sure his own work properly,she agreed because this great doctor gave me assurance about his good work.
    Weeks later after my mother start using this pain patch she started experiencing changes all over her as the DR assured me that she will cured,after some time i went to her doctor to confirmed if she has finally healed behold it was TRUE, So dear viewers my advise is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can try the pain patch like my mother did and see for yourself
