Fibromyalgia is a serious disease that affects the musculoskeletal system of your body. It often is the result of prolonged muscle spasms, which then ends up with many other symptoms such as depression, headaches, brain fog, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome and many others. Due to the fact that there are so many symptoms involved, fibromyalgia is difficult to diagnose.
Medical professionals will tell you that fibromyalgia is incurable, as they can only treat the symptoms and not the disease itself. However, there have been many individuals who have healed themselves, and were able to find freedom from all their symptoms. How can this be possible?
High Levels of Toxins
According to medical studies, those who suffer from fibromyalgia have nutritional deficiencies and high levels of toxins in their body. Other studies show that toxins can irritate muscles, and muscle movements. Toxins can also cause insomnia, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, headaches and many other common ailments and serious diseases.
Thus if you begin to eliminate toxins from your body, you can begin to feel better. How can you eliminate toxins from your body? It is not hard to eliminate the toxins from your body once you understand what caused you to become toxic in the first place.
Toxins enter your body mainly through the foods that you eat. Therefore you need to eliminate the toxic foods and add in lots of other foods that are not toxic to help remove the toxins.
Toxic foods are usually processed in one form or another. They usually come in pre-wrapped packages, or in boxes, cans, bottles and cartons. Basically anything that you cannot get in the fresh produce section has been processed. Junk foods and fast foods, are also highly processed and toxic in your body.
Believe it or not but animal proteins are toxic as well. Not only do they contain hormones, antibiotics and other drugs that were fed to the animals, but once you cook and eat them they become toxic as well. This includes all meats, dairy and dairy products as well as eggs.
So you are probably wondering what you can eat if you have to eliminate all of the above mentioned foods. The answer is rather quite simple. Shop mainly in the fresh produce section of the grocery store and eat those foods as they are. Do not cook, bake, steam or fry them as this depletes them of essential nutrients that your body needs.
Lots of vegetables, herbs, fruits and nuts will give you all the necessary nutrients that your body needs in order to restore the nutrient deficiencies. In addition, these foods will also help to speed up the process of eliminating toxins from your body.
The only vitamin that you may be deficient in that you will not be able to obtain from a plant-based diet is vitamin D. But, the good news is that you can obtain this vitamin naturally from the sun through sun exposure.
Once you have begun to make changes in your diet you will begin to see a slow but steady decline in your symptoms if you stick to a healthy diet. It will take months and perhaps even years, but you can cure your fibromyalgia.
