Fibro Joint Issues Can Be Stopped Without Prescription Medications
How can one choose the right path when at every turn there are new ways presented as the cure for fibromyalgia? This is a question that I have asked myself as I try to inform people about their fibromyalgia options. You see, if you choose one way that might create a harmful side effect in you, you don’t move towards relief only more pain and discomfort. Yet if you try many different fibromyalgia treatment options, you could very easily find the right one for you and then adapt it into your everyday lifestyle. This can also be difficult because treatment options require that you take time out your day to be treated instead of just popping a pill for fibromyalgia treatment. Inside every treatment, there is truth of a possible relief pattern yet sometimes the lie out-weighs the truth; such is the case with prescription medication. Meds used for fibromyalgia treatment therapy were never designed for fibromyalgia treatment and can cause more side effect symptoms than stopping the original fibromyalgia symptoms in the first place. So be wise with what you choose as your final fibromyalgia treatment option, put it to use and be consistent.
The Alternative Treatment
Instead of having to use prescription drugs over a long term basis which can be hurtful, you can take nature’s remedies and utilize the herbs, minerals and vitamins that can minimize the frequency and the intensity of the fibro attacks along with their symptoms. Here are a few of them:
1) Vitamin D – Research has shown that Vitamin D can help with the symptoms of Fibromyalgia. In fact, one specific study shows that individuals who suffer from Fibromyalgia have lower levels of Vitamin D, thus increasing Vitamin D can help to lessen the symptoms caused by Fibromyalgia.
2) Fish Oil – Fish oil has omega-3 fatty acids which are known to be an anti-inflammatory which makes it an excellent source for reducing the pain associated with Fibromyalgia.
3) SAMe – This particular supplement is a synthetic form of a compound which the body naturally produces. It is needed for immune function and plays a key role in the forming of cartilage and DNA. Research has shown that SAMe can lessen the symptoms of chronic pain as well as boost an individual’s spirits (good for those also experiencing depression).
4) Capsaicin – When Capsaicin is used on the tender points of a person who suffers from Fibromyalgia a decrease in pain has been notated in some research.
5) Ribose – Fibromyalgia is often caused because of tight muscles. Ribose can help to ease this pain because Ribose can help to loosen those muscles and help to improve the debilitating symptoms of Fibromyalgia.
6) Magnesium – Mg or magnesium can aid in relief from Fibromyalgia because when taken as an additional supplement it can help to reduce the muscle spasms, weakness, and back pain that are commonly associated with Fibromyalgia.
Exercising Your Joint Pain Away
The common theme is starting slow. Five minutes is a good start for fibromyalgia sufferers. It is important to remember that some pain is expected, but sharp pain or exhaustion means that they are doing too much or exercising for too long. Fibromyalgia sufferers should seek medical advice before beginning any exercise regimen because doctors are able to suggest the best plan for each individual patient. Walking is one of the best and easiest exercises. It is suggested to start with just five minutes of walking. After that, they should add a minute each day until they are up to walking for about an hour. It is also suggested to try to walk an hour at least three to four times each week. Once walking for an hour seems easier, it is suggested alternated walking and light jogging. Swimming is also a low impact exercise. It is suggested to start treading water for a few minutes, and then build up from there. After treading water becomes easier, the fibromyalgia sufferer should move up to swimming laps for about 30 minutes. Water aerobics are also a good idea for fibromyalgia sufferers. Bicycling is safest to use a stationary bike to reduce any risk of falling. Also, this is important to start slow with and gradually move up the amount of time spent bicycling until the fibromyalgia sufferer is able to ride for approximately an hour. After an hour becomes easier, then they can set mileage goals.
