I was regularly saying to my patients that if they feel pain and ache, the best thing they can have is fibromyalgia. Obviously, an announcement like this can make some misperception, considering that individuals with fibromyalgia are told that there is no cure for this condition. But fibromyalgia can be cured—aside what specialists say—when the basic reason is treated.
Curing an illness obliges treating the main reason for the condition; but, today’s medical system focuses rather on treating side effects, regularly with very toxic medications. In fibromyalgia, the medication Lyrica, used to heal nerve pain, fits easily into this group. What’s more, don’t be charmed by the maker’s TV commercial recommending that the pain of fibromyalgia is because of overstimulation of the nerve endings.
The pain of fibromyalgia, which is not an inflammatory condition nor an immune system ailment, is caused with the development of lactic acid in tendon sheaths and muscle tissue. It is the same pain alluded to as “muscle smolder” by athletes who work out. And now it is clear that to eliminate the pain of fibromyalgia, one needs to keep the development of lactic acid, which, thusly, is able with treating the basic cause(s) of this condition.
There is no simple and basic cause of fibromyalgia, but all causes have similar factors. As an example the only situation that build up a lactic acid is persistent muscle tension over a certain time. Lots of thigs can lead to muscle tension, but we will focus on the internalization of anger.
Anger is a really powerful emotion, and if it’s not released, it will be internalized and can create a situation like persistent muscle tension, leading to buildup of lucid acid.
So the question arises: “Where does this anger come from?”
There appear to be two major sources: an extremely stressful relationship, such as living with an abusive spouse, necessitating “walking on eggshells;” or caregiving for a family member, requiring putting one’s own life on hold until that person passes on. The second major source of anger is actually a lot more common, and although it is consistently unrecognized as a source of anger, it is thankfully a lot easier to address. At this point we have arrived at the most common underlying cause of fibromyalgia: the presence of excess adrenaline.
As many people are aware, adrenaline is known as the fight-or-flight hormone. It is extremely powerful and is certainly capable of creating intense anger such as “road rage.” (I will be discussing the interrelationship between adrenaline and fibromyalgia, but please be aware that this hormone is also the underlying cause of many other conditions that are also felt to be incurable.)
As previously mentioned, the pain of fibromyalgia is caused by a buildup of lactic acid from constant muscle tension. Again, this can be caused by anger from certain interpersonal relationships or from the release of excess adrenaline. Contributing to the buildup is the tension of the muscles compressing small veins—venules—which carry lactic acid out of muscles. At the same time, muscle tension similarly compresses lymphatic vessels that also function to remove lactic acid from muscles. This creates a situation where the lactic acid is continuously building up, but is not able to be drained.
In addition, this persistent muscle tension is responsible for the constant fatigue that fibromyalgia patients complain of. Muscle tension is also responsible for other symptoms associated with this condition, such as temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ)—which causes pain and dysfunction in the jaw—the grinding of teeth, restless leg syndrome (RLS)—unpleasant sensations in the legs and an uncontrollable urge to move them—and occipital neuritis, which is a headache often confused with a migraine because of its severe pain radiating from the base of the skull to the back of the eye.
If one person has the capacity to accept that extra adrenaline as the main reason for some cases of fibromyalgia, then he can easily assume that lowering of adrenaline can cure this condition—and it is. Furthermore, reducing those stresses caused by other people can cure fibromyalgia produced by unhappy life situations. I have seen this more than once in numerous cases. It may not be simple to get rid of an abusive partner, arranging caretakers for a relative, or isolating from a pet that causes anger, yet the healthy life is worth for following these changes.
First we have to understand why our body overproduces adrenaline if we want to lower it. Until a certain time in history our body only produces extra adrenaline in times of risk. It was giving chance to people either face the danger or run away – the fight-or-fight answer. This physical answer lasted only a couple of minutes, and when the danger passes the adrenaline returned to normal. But today there are people who discharge adrenaline all night and day without being in danger. Why is this?
First, a little background information. It is important to understand that the brain uses more sugar than any other part of the body. When sugar is taken away from the brain, the brain falls asleep. This is commonly referred to as hypoglycemia. People often get sleepy between 3 and 4 p.m., when insulin levels peak. When insulin goes up, blood sugar goes down. Some people get hypoglycemic after eating, simply because food stimulates the release of insulin (some foods more than others). It is also not unusual for people to get sleepy in a car, either as a driver or as a passenger. The reason for this is that the brain uses up a lot of fuel when a person is riding in a car. From a survival standpoint, the body always wants to make sure the brain has enough fuel.
So any time when the body detects small amount of fuel in the brain it releases adrenaline to increase sugar level. This process is called gluconeogenesis, and allows conversion of protein into sugar, and mediated by the sympathetic nervous system. We come to the point when it is possible to see how fibromyalgia can be significantly better with giving the necessary fuel to the brain to prevent the need for discharging adrenaline. It takes only 24 hours to reduce adrenaline. This can cause relaxation of the muscle tension and improvement in circulation, which can eliminate extra lactic acid.
We can find the best sugar for our brain in the green vegetables. But the best fuels for the brain are oils that can create ketone bodies in the brain, like palm or coconut oil. By combining these foods into your diet, you should notice a decrease in symptoms of extra adrenaline very soon. Other good component that can help in reducing adrenaline is bio – identical progesterone cream with strength of 5 percent (50mg) per pump – the amount required to control insulin and block adrenaline. Also big help against fibromyalgia are magnesium, coenzyme Q10 d-ribose, and high dose of vitamin D3 (10,000 to 15,000 IU daily), together with K2 (MK-7).
With using these method you can cure fibromyalgia in just three days to three weeks.
