Fibromyalgia is a disorder that used to be called fibrositis that causes joints and muscle aches and pains along with fatigue. People with fibromyalgia have chronic widespread pain, as well as “tender points” on the neck, shoulders, back, hips, arms, and legs, which hurt when slight pressure is applied. Chronic muscle and joint pain that has no obvious physical cause is so common and follows a consistent pattern the term ‘fibrositis’ has been dropped the suffix ‘itis’ suggested inflammation which has never been demonstrated, as no other cause could be found even by means including microscopic examination of tissues. It is believed that the syndrome is caused b excessive sensitivity of the nerves that supply some soft tissues and their connections in the spinal cord and brain with resultant increased muscle tension that is aggravated if certain stages of sleep are disturbed, as they usually are in fibromyalgia.
People with fibromyalgia may also have symptoms, which usually develops slowly over months or years, often starting in one part of the body and gradually becoming more generalised, the characteristic symptoms such as :
Trouble sleeping, or inability to sleep well,
Symptoms not relieved by rest or sleep,
Problems with thinking and memory (sometimes called “fibro fog”),
Irritable bowel syndrome.
May also have painful menstrual periods.
Depression, emotional or psychological distress.
The widespread pain that seems to come from joints and muscles affecting both sides of the body above and below the waist, difficult to interfere with regular activities and present on most days for over three months,
Increased sensitivity particularly to pressure of soft tissues around the skeleton, noted most conspicuously in specific area known as tender points in the neck, shoulders, elbows, hips, buttocks and knees.
One may help by incorporating a few simple life-style changes into daily routine life and habits.
• Eliminate processed foods from the diet, especially white sugar and white flour products as over time may damage the digestion as well as cause obesity, one of the common problem related to fibromyalgia.
•Include foods, such as proteins, complex and unrefined carbohydrates,vegetables, whole grains and legumes(beans and bean products) especially soy based products.
•Avoid greasy foods, ice-cold drinks, alcohol, raw and uncooked foods, hot, coffee, and too much fruit. Avoid daily canned juice drinks.
•Stop drinking sodas. Sodas are acidic in nature and loaded with sugar and chemicals. Sodas are detrimental to both the spleen and the kidneys.
•Exercise that you really enjoy and just do it!
•Take a walk every day.
•Practice self massage every morning by stimulating or rubbing the hands to help promote the flow of Qi and blood in the channels.
This may be finding a new more supportive relationships. Understand that stress alone can kill you, and if you smoke and consume alcohol to escape stressful situations, you are making worst to it.
BUT, a SUJOK(ACUPUNCTURE) practitioner may overcome the symptoms. SUJOK itself is a powerful medicine, which aids in strengthening the immune system and serves to prevent diseases, control pain and increase both the ability to function and the quality of peoples lives. It has been shown to promote the health and improve the body’s immune function and helped many people who were not successfully treated through conventional western medicine. Several conditions can be dramatically improved or remedied in full including fibromyalgia syndrome.
An important aspect of Su Jok therapy is that it allows to take into account an individual characteristics of the patient manifested in own energy constitution. This brings about an effective action on the very origin of disease. Besides, there are practically no contradictions for utilization of Su Jok therapy.
