First i want to clear up a misconception fibro is NOT one disorder.
It is a number of disorders that have the same symptoms.

Most are neuro chemical disorders or neuro receptor disorders.
What works for one will NOT work for all.
Fluoride toxicity "may" cause a small number of fibro cases. very small number.
I will agree with Aspartame (NutraSweet) makes fibro worse but does not cause it.
the same for many other chemical sweeteners except spenda
There is a pain receptor in the nervous system known as NMDA. When pain turns from acute to chronic, it involves opening the NMDA pain
receptor. Aspartame, which is classified as an excitotoxin, helps stimulate this to happen. People with fibromyalgia appear to already have overly
active NMDA pain receptors, making them even more susceptible to the stimulation.
Caffeine< Yeast and gluten< High Fat Dairy< Nightshade Plants,fried foods, soda pop or any carbonated beverages.
all bogus causes of fibro, but may agregervate fibro in a very few people.
magnesium 400 mg. plus malic acid 600 mg. 3 times a day.L-Lysine 2 grams 2,000 mgs.The herb Rhodiola and also CoQ10
may work for a very
few but not all.
A dangerus chemical if you are taking any antidepressant used to treat fibro.
can cause serotonin syndrome.
Drinking borax in water is another excellent way to bring up your Ph. Mix 1/8 a tsp. of (that’s right, good old Twenty Mule Team) borax in a
liter of water, and drink it once a day, but not all at once. (five days on two days off) What ever form of borax you choose, make sure it’s 100%
borax with no additives.
borax you have to be kidding.
Borax, given the E number E285, is used as a food additive in some countries but is banned in the United States.
because of the risk of liver cancer with consumption over a period of 5–10 years.
Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide, baking soda.
I use them instead of toothpaste, and they never helped with fibro might help a very few with fibro.
Oil Pulling never heard of it used for fibro and i use sunflower oil as cooking oil because of its good fat properties.
Apple Cider Vinegar For Fibromyalgia Pain
might work for a very few but a spoon full of McIlhenny tabasco sauce will work a lot better. see "endorphin rush"
All of the information here has been gathered from the personal statements of fibromyalgia sufferers themselves from many years as a member of
menwithfibro.com web site.
The cause of my fibro is the auto immune disorder sarcoidosis.
autoimmune disorders are very common in people with fibro.
so are thyroid disorders and back injuries.
In the people with back injuries or surgerys this seems to allow something to pass the blood brain barrier and to attack the central nervous system
causing fibro. virus ECT but it causes damage like caused by a autoimmune disorder in a area that is protected by the blood brain barrier.
In a autoimmine disorder the body attacks itself.
One of the things that may happen is the autoimmune attack alters the way the body produses neuro chemicals, and the receptors that the chemicals work
This can be seen in diabetes. in autoimmune diabetes the attack alters the Insulin producing cells till the insulin is unusable by the body.
Or in type two diabetes it damages the insulin receptors till the cells in the body can not use insulin to process glucose in the cells.
The same thing seems to happens in fibro.
There are a number of drugs that augment neuro chemical that have worked on people with fibro.
If the problem is with the neuro chemical serotonin antidepressants like cymbalta may work. In this group with fibro most are depressed and this is
where some doctors think its a mental disorder, (ie all in your head)
But this group is less then 20% of the people with fibro and it only help some with fibro co morbid with depression. having fibro is depressing.
Other neuro chemicals associated with fibro
Some people with fibro are helped by Pramipexole (Mirapex)a drug used to treat Parkinson’s disease.. or ropinirole (Requip) that is used for
restless leg syndrome. both work by raising the level of dopamine in the body.
These people may also be helped by opioids and medical marijuana as these both raise dopamine levels in the body.
people with fibro caused by low levels of GABA are helped by drugs like gabapentin (neurontin)or pregabalin (Lyrica)
These people may also have other neuro disorders co-morbid with there fibro like neuropathy.
You can not cure fibro its damage to these neuro chemical producing cells or the receptors for these neuro chemicals. in this its like diabetes you
can only treat the symptoms and in a some cases the body may repair some of the damage.
I also want to add that lyme disease does not cause fibro ether.
The cases of fibro are just as common in areas of the world without lyme disease as in the areas that have lyme disease. plus people from areas of the
world without lyme disease will get pissed at you for the BS about lyme disease and bugging them.
Fibro is found around the world in the Frequency in areas with differnt diets and life styles and this in its self shows that most of these so called
cures and causes are bogus.
There are also a few disorders with symptoms like fibro that go away on there own. Many may be miss DXed as fibro and people think that they have been
Lyme Disease. Polymyalgia Rheumatica,
and the all in your head part you can blame on a doctor named Simon Wessely that was being payed by the insurance industry to turn fibro into a non
disease so that the insurance industry did not have to pay for treatment of people with fibro.
Now for the nut cases and desperate to come after me for bursting there bubbles. This should be interesting.
And for those with friends or relatives with fibro don't bother them with these cures.
We tend to bite people with scam cures and many of us have heard them all till we are fed up with them.
