Fibromyalgia is a condition of chronic muscle aches and pains with no known cause. Often times the pain of fibromyalgia is severe enough to cause a person to become disabled. Most of the time fibromyalgia sufferers also have chronic fatigue syndrome. Talk about a double whammy. Typically, digestive weaknesses, hormone imbalances and sleep disorders also accompany fibromyalgia. Diets high in sugar, meat, fried and junk food, as well as caffeine seem to aggravate the condition. The same with carbonated drinks. It is best to eat a diet high in vegetables, whole grains and omega 3 fatty acids to help fight this disease. Yogurt is also a big help. Magnesium is an important mineral and fibromyalgia patients have been found to be deficient. Successful treatments for fibromyalgia include chiropractic care, acupressure, massage and certain homeopathic remedies like Bryonia.

Thought of the Week: "It wasn't long ago dentists were perceived as bad teeth doctors. There was no reason or motivation to go to the dentist unless you had pain in your mouth. Perceived as just a notch above barbers, dentists were scorned, feared, and were only consulted as a last resort. it was time to see the dentist when treatment was thought to be less painful then the inflammation from dental neglect. Sounds a lot like chiropractic.....The highest calling of any doctor is to prevent what he or she treats." ---Bill Esteb

Chiropractic's philosophy of spinal hygiene, the correction of subluxations to improve function, prevent arthritis and enhance quality of life is no different then visiting the dentist on a preventative basis or, for that matter, having the oil changed on your car. Chiropractic is pro-active health care.----Dr. J
