Fibromyalgia: what is it?

Many people ask me what Fibro is. 

I think that when we have it, and know so many others with it, we forget that many people need to understand the basics about fibromyalgia. 

The word fibromyalgia comes from the Latin term for fibrous tissue (fibro) and the Greek words for muscle (myo) and pain (algia). But Fibromyalgia is so much more than just muscle pain in the fibrous tissues of the body.

Fibromyalgia syndrome is widespread muscle pain, fatigue, and multiple tender points.  In addition to this, people who have fibromyalgia may experience:
  • sleep disturbances
  • morning stiffness
  • headaches
  • irritable bowel syndrome
  • painful menstrual periods
  • numbness or tingling of the extremities
  • restless legs syndrome
  • temperature sensitivity
  • cognitive and memory problems referred to as “fibro fog”
  • a variety of other symptoms

  1. Think of both Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as "ENERGY CRISIS" disorders. The goal of therapy is to return "energy" to the tissues so that the organs can function properly.

    In that scenario, you have to chase down everything that is either stealing energy from the tissues, preventing energy from getting to the tissues or preventing the production of the energy molecules.

    That is why Earth's Natural Magnetic Energy works so will with these conditions.
    Magnetics increase blood circulation and decrease inflammation.
