Fibromyalgia Holistic Evaluation
Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) is a painful, chronic illness primarily involving widespread muscle pain (often described as burning, throbbing, shooting or stabbing), and stiffness. The pain and stiffness are often worse in the morning and can vary from mild to debilitating.
As with all chronic conditions genetics are a predisposing factor. However, it is either physical or emotional stress that ‘turns’ on these genes causing the symptoms to manifest. Sometimes these physical stressors can consist of a severe bacterial or viral infection, accident or chemical exposure. Emotional stress has been found to be the more common cause of fibromyalgia. This stress might be a divorce, loss of job or death in the family. Or the emotional stress could be an accumulation of years of emotional trauma. The symptoms of fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue will often have their onset within a year from the time the stress began.
Just as every patient with fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue is unique so is the treatment. Begin with a homeopathic evaluation to find the constitutional remedy. The correct remedy has tremendous abilities to stimulate the body to heal especially where there have been emotional traumas triggering the onset of the disease.
