Fibromyalgia is a serious, but non-life threatening disease. It mainly affects the muscles, tendons and ligaments. But due to the crippling effect, it can also cause depression, insomnia and a sense of hopelessness, as medical science has not yet discovered a cure.
However, there is a way that you can overcome Fibromyalgia without the help of medical science. Many people have already done so, and if they can do it, then you can too.
Changing Your Diet
One of the first things that you need to do in order to overcome Fibromyalgia is to change your diet. The American Standard Diet is not the diet that will help you, and neither are all those other fad diet that are out there. But the diet you must switch to is the one that mother nature provides you with. Yes, this means that you will have to stop cooking and eating processed foods, as they can be highly toxic and offer little or no nutrients to your body.
Raw foods will restore nutrients back to your body, remove toxins and keep your body clean from the inside out. Once you begin to make changes you will begin to see your symptoms lessen and eventually go away if you do not give up.
The foods to incorporate into your diet are fresh fruits and vegetables, herbs, and nuts and seeds. Transitioning to this diet can be rather difficult, as this diet is detoxifying which is hard on the body. On top of that, most people do not support it because they do not believe that you can obtain all required nutrients while on this diet. But new studies have shown that you can in fact obtain all essential nutrients from a plant-based diet without the dangerous toxins that are found in animal products and processed foods.
The key to transitioning to this diet is to take it slow. Begin your morning with a raw breakfast, and then remain raw for as long as you can. Eventually you will be able to make it raw for the whole day, and this is when you will begin to experience true healing. It may take months and even years to overcome Fibromyalgia completely, but you can do it one step at a time.
Another thing that you can do that will help you in your battle is to promote sweating, as this will help to eliminate toxins from your body as well. You can use a sauna if you have one, or a hot bath will work just as well.
