Sufferers of this condition find themselves in chronic pain and they are often fatigued, sleep-deprived, depressed or anxious. Irritable bowel can also be troubling for some FMS patients. To top things off, the medical community often feels like the condition doesn’t exist and feels that it “Is all in your head.” Anti-depressants don’t treat the cause of the pain and fatigue and Lyrica, a drug now used to treat Fibromyalgia, is riddled with side-effects.
Effective Winnipeg Fibromyalgia Treatments
So what is the solution to the problems of Fibromyalgia? I have seen many, many patients who suffer with Fibromyalgia and there is help for the suffering. I offer several therapies which I have found to have the greatest beneficial effect for treatment of FMS and we, until recently, were able to share with you these therapies. However, Health Canada has not allowed naturopathic doctors to advertise our advanced therapies for fibromyalgia unless they are approved my Health Canada. As it turns out, only drugs can be advertised to treat fibromyalgia as pharmaceutical companies have spent millions of dollars on studies to get them approved. Naturopathic medicines are unpatentable and lack the ability to perform such large studies so we must rely on our clinical experience, schooling, continuing education and good case-taking to use the best medicines we feel can help fibromyalgia patients and have many options available. Dr. Ceaser has been treating fibromyalgia for over 25 years and has seen hundreds of cases and helped many of them. As with any condition, not all cases receive benefit from the therapies, but experience allows for exploration of a variety of treatments as one size does not fit all. Please contact our clinic for more information.
Proper laboratory testing and correct diet
Laboratory testing can reveal a diet that is right for Fibromyalgia. Allergies and blood sugar issues can cause fatigue and other symptoms associated with FMS. Lab tests can distinguish the root of the problem and therefore a unique diet can be used to help to improve the condition. Proper testing for heavy metals and elimination of the heavy metal has proved extremely helpful for a number of my “Fibro” patients. A G.I. Health Panel can determine the cause of irritable bowel syndrome and therefore Naturopathic treatment can focus on the cause of the bowel symptoms.
