If you or your loved one suffers from fibromyalgia, you must be well aware of the pain, fatigue and brain fog. Fibromyalgia is caused by a malfunction in how nerves send pain signals to the brain. This can result in widespread pain throughout your body, as well as extreme fatigue and difficulty concentrating or thinking clearly.
Many people who have Fibromyalgia also have TMJ disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, tension headaches, anxiety, and depression. It can seem like you are constantly in pain with relief only for short durations. Fibromyalgia can make it almost impossible for you to perform everyday tasks and negatively impact the quality of your life.
The medical industry’s approach to treating fibromyalgia is to give you drugs to ease the pain of this ailment. The drugs include opioids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), muscle relaxants and antidepressants. The problem with these drugs is that they can become less effective over time, and they can also be damaging to your organs with long-term use. Opioids, in particular, carry a risk of addiction, and after a while, you either have to increase the dose or stop taking them. Antidepressants can also cause serious side effects, including liver damage, increased pain, flu-like symptoms, and even psychosis. In some cases, people had to go to the emergency room or have experienced severe withdrawal symptoms when they stopped taking antidepressants. Fortunately, the natural healing route offers more effective benefits for people with fibromyalgia. One of the components of HijamaEnergetics natural treatment for Fibromyalgia is deep tissue massage. Our massage locates blockages in the tissues and open up blocked channels. A 2014 study found that 5 weeks of deep tissue massage led to significant improvements in anxiety, depression, and pain in people with Fibromyalgia. We also work on the emotional blockages as studies have found the link between emotional distress and fibromyalgia. The study found that people who experience high levels of stress are more likely to develop the symptoms of fibromyalgia. According to the CDC, the link between anxiety or depression and Fibromyalgia is especially strong for women, affecting twice as many women as men. An important component of HijamaEnergetics treatment for fibromyalgia is microcurrent therapy, which has been incredibly helpful in helping our clients with fibromyalgia find relief from symptoms like chronic aches and pains, uncomfortable inflammation, low energy and mood. HijamaEnergetics now offer a 6-months treatment program for overcoming fibromyalgia.[/caption]
