10 Foods for Fighting Fibromyalgia (with recipes)

As advances in science have given us a better picture of the impact of diet and nutrition on our health – it has become clear that the two are closely linked. According to the U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Richard Carmona, because of “unhealthy eating habits, and physical inactivity, we may see the first generation that will be less healthy and have a shorter life expectancy than their parents.”

Understanding the impact of diet and nutrition on the body is especially important for those of us suffering from a chronic illness like fibromyalgia. While our fibromyalgia isn’t necessarily caused by diet or nutrition alone – they can influence our symptoms for better or for worse. Knowing which foods help and which foods hurt can put us on a path to a healthier, more comfortable life.

Foods That Can Hurt Your Fibromyalgia

Knowing which foods or ingredients might trigger pain (or enhance your sensitivity to it) is essential for anyone experiencing chronic pain. Eliminating them from your diet can help you avoid unwanted flare-ups and reduce your pain levels. While each of our body’s may react differently to different foods, six things you should generally avoid if you have fibromyalgia are:

Food additives (i.e. MSG)

Artificial Sweeteners (i.e. aspartame)

Caffeine

Simple Carbs (sugars)

Dairy

Nightshade Vegetables (i.e. eggplants, tomatoes, potatoes, various peppers)

Nutrients & Foods That Can Help Your Fibromyalgia

Once you’ve eliminated potential pain-triggering foods from your diet, you can focus on including foods and nutrients that will help your body fight pain and ease the various other symptoms of fibromyalgia. There are a number of vitamins and nutrients that are essential for helping the body heal, as well as helping to boost energy, reduce fatigue, improve mood and enhance memory or mental clarity (to name just a few).

Figuring out what these essential nutrients are and determining which foods contain them can be challenging. To take out some of the guess work and get you pointed in the right direction, here are some nutrients and foods you should include in your diet to help fight the symptoms of fibromyalgia:

Vitamin B12:

Vitamin B12 converts fuel carbohydrates into glucose, which the body uses salmonas a fuel source to generate energy. If your body does not get enough B12, you will likely begin to feel fatigued and weak.

Health benefits: Boosts energy, helps ease soreness, and improves nerve health

Food sources: Fortified cereals, salmon, tuna

Magnesium:

An estimated 80% of adults in the United States are deficient of magnesium. Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include muscle soreness, pain, fatigue, memory loss, difficulty focusing and more. These symptoms are all too familiar to those of us with fibromyalgia. While magnesium deficiency may not the only cause of our symptoms, in some cases it may play a role.

Health benefits: relieves pain and tenderness from sore muscles, improves cognitive health and reduces fatigue or weakness.

Food sources: Spinach, pumpkin seeds, black beans, sunflower seeds

Omega-3 Fatty Acids:

Besides helping to ease pain, Omega-3 also helps fight cognitive decline, reduce inflammation, relieve inflammatory bowel syndrome and more.

Benefits: reduces pain and soreness, fights inflammation, slows cognitive decline, fights rheumatoid arthritis, may help reduce symptoms of depression

Food sources: Flaxseeds, soybeans, walnuts, salmon

Vitamin D:

The number of Americans with vitamin D deficiency has tripled in the last three decades. An estimated 13% are deficient and as many as 30% more are at risk of deficiency. In some cases, vitamin D deficiency can result in chronic pain symptoms.

Benefits: Promotes muscle recovery, reduces muscle and joint pain, promotes healthy bones

Food sources: fortified cereals, mushrooms, sardines

Iron:

broccoliIron helps promote the flow of oxygen into the bloodstream – a critical function that delivers much needed oxygen and nutrients to cells throughout the body. When your body doesn’t get enough iron, you may experience fatigue, dizziness, shortness of breath, headaches and more. Women are more susceptible to iron deficiency than men. In fact, one out of every ten women suffers from iron deficiency.

Benefits: Promotes oxygen flow, fights fatigue and exhaustion, builds healthy muscles, improves cognitive function, strengthens immune system.

Food sources: Spinach, broccoli, whole grains, olives, legumes

Turmeric (Curcumin):

Turmeric is a plant from the ginger family containing a powerful pain-relieving compound known as curcumin. This powerful antioxidant has been used to help relieve pain naturally for over 4,000 years!

Benefits: Natural pain reliever, fights harmful free radicals in the body

Food sources: Turmeric powder (often used as a spice in cooking) or supplements
