Integrative Approach to Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia (FMS) is one of the most debilitating chronic pain diseases that is affecting the population worldwide. It was once dismissed by the mainstream medical community as a ‘psychological disorder’ without an underlying organic cause. However, recent studies have revealed that fibromyalgia is caused by aberrations of the nervous system commonly referred to as the ‘central sensitization syndrome’. Researches have also shown that patients with fibromyalgia are also presented with other comorbidities such as systemic inflammations, chronic stress, anxiety and depression, insomnia, hormonal imbalances, and micronutrient deficiencies. The signs and symptoms of these comorbidities are not uncommon in our everyday practice but they seldom get addressed. Using convenient blood tests to uncover the deficiencies and targeting them with nutritional therapies can help improve the quality of life of patients with fibromyalgia.
