5 Natural Remedies for Fibromyalgia
Feeling aches and pains in your body may be due to Fibromyalgia and the good news is there are natural remedies to reduce them.
For a disease with no known cause, fibromyalgia sure affects a lot of people, at least 5 million in the U.S. alone. That’s about an estimated 2–4% of the population! Now, what’s strange about fibromyalgia is that it seems to affect more women than men, as 9 out of 10 people who reportedly suffer from fibromyalgia are female.
Since the leading symptom of fibromyalgia seems to be muscle and body pain, scientists and doctors have tried to treat the symptoms with conventional drugs including NSAIDs (non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs), pain killers and antidepressants. However, these methods of treatment don’t seem to work very well.
Furthermore, taking different combinations of drugs can result in a real problem, especially when you want to slow down or stop the medication. In many cases, some of these pain relievers can be quite addicting, and have some serious side effects.
If you’ve suddenly been feeling pain and discomfort in your body, along with symptoms of fatigue, for some inexplicable reason, then you could be suffering from fibromyalgia, which affects hundreds of thousands of people between the ages of 20–50, most commonly women. Fortunately, a few natural remedies can be used to control the symptoms of this painful condition. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
