Fibromyalgia is a painful and complex condition that requires supportive treatment. The American Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that fibromyalgia occurs in 2% of the population (3.4% of women and in 0.5% of men), and is 7 times more likely to occur in women than men¹.
Fibromyalgia is characterized by widespread diffuse musculoskeletal chronic pain and abnormal pain processing².
Often times fibromyalgia is accompanied by:
- Sleep disturbances
- Emotional distress
- Cognitive and memory problems
- Morning stiffness
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Painful menstrual periods
- Numbness or tingling of the extremities
- Restless Leg Syndrome
- Sensitivity to loud noises are bright light
- Chemical sensitivities
- Food sensitivities
The cause of fibromyalgia remains unknown but there seems to be a number of factors involved and evidence that the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) processes involved in pain perception play a critical role² ³. It is also been documented that many people associate the development of fibromyalgia with a physically or emotionally stressful and/or traumatic event³.
Having been diagnosed with fibromyalgia myself, I have first-hand experience and intimate knowledge of exactly how these processes work within the body. I combine my training in neuroscience, medical science, toxicology, and therapeutic practices that act directly on the central nervous system to support an effective solution for recovery from fibromyalgia.
