Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

6 Remedies for Fibro / Muscle Pain

    I have identified several different causes of my own "fibromyalgia" muscle pain.

    Different imbalances can cause physical pain. Listening to your body to find out what it's missing and correcting the balance will remove the fibromyalgia symptoms quickly. Here are some imbalances to look out for:

    • Lack of electrolytes (low potassium cramps, etc. Can be fixed with a drink like Emergen-C Electro Mix orOptimal Electrolyte)
    • Lack of magnesium (transdermal magnesium oil massage can soothe if this is reason for flare)
    • Low levels of thyroid hormone (need more iodine & selenium or thyroid glandular. methylation supplements improve my thyroid function)
    • Low levels of glycogen in muscles (can be fixed by eating carbs / starches... rice, sweet potato)
    • ATP bankruptcy (if I've really over done it physically, 5 grams of d-ribose will 'hotwire' the energy synthesis cycle and remove muscle pain. May require several doses over a day or two.)
    • Inflammation from allergies, GLUTEN, delayed onset food intolerances, bad fats, etc. (Do an elimination diet and find out what causes you to flare. Then stop eating it!)
    For my "wired" insomnia that often comes with fibromyalgia, I have found that taking sublingual B6 will usually put me right to sleep. I suspect its caused by Pyroluria.

    Sherpa, have you ever tried taking essential sugars or glyconutrients? If so, did they help? I have been thinking about trying Swanson's brand of essential sugars to see if they help. I tried a low carb diet once and things got much worse for me. I think I must also have a low level of glycogen.
