Docs were DEAD WRONG about fibromyalgia (Here’s how to BEAT it)
It’s the disease your own doctor might INSIST you don’t have.
And it’s not because you don’t actually have it… but because HE doesn’t BELIEVE in it!
Some docs think fibromyalgia is like fairies and unicorns; a made-up bit of fantasy from over-imaginative patients who only THINK they’re sick.
But new research shows who’s REALLY living in fantasyland, and it’s not you.
It’s doctors who refuse to recognize the painful reality of what it’s like to struggle with this debilitating condition.
The proof is the scans.
Folks who suffer from the fatigue, pain and other chronic symptoms that mark fibromyalgia have major changes inside the brain, according to startling new images.
Your brain has a system that triggers inflammation when needed, especially in response to pain and stress.
But this system is generally focused and targeted on the direct causes of pain such as injury and infection.
Scans of patients with back pain, for example, show only a limited number of brain areas switching on in response to those aches.
Scans of folks with fibromyalgia, however, reveal something else.
Their brains light up like Times Square on New Year’s Eve.
This hyped-up system fires off alarming chemical messages in every direction, causing your body to crank out inflammatory compounds all over the place.
That leads not only to more pain, but also more sensitivity to that pain, giving you a double dose of agony.
And it also leads to fatigue, another common symptom of fibromyalgia.
Yet too many doctors still offer antidepressants to patients struggling with this life-sapping condition as if the problem is “all in your head.”
As the new study shows, part of it IS in your head… just NOT in the way they think!
No mood med in the world will fix the problems causing the brain to crank out all those inflammatory signals.
Fibromyalgia can have multiple causes, and the best treatment will depend on finding and treating the underlying cause or causes.
That said, I’ve found most patients see remarkable recovery and in many cases a complete reversal with the help of a natural intravenous therapy called the “Myers Cocktail.”
There’s nothing weird in it, just therapeutic doses of B vitamins along with essential minerals such as magnesium and calcium.
I’ve made a few tweaks over the years to turn it into what I call the “Energizer Formula.”
I’ve modified it to include a few other essential minerals followed up with additional B vitamins and trace minerals, followed separately with a dose of the “master antioxidant” glutathione.
Since the nutrients have to be delivered intravenously, you can’t try this on your own. However, any experienced holistic medical doctor should be familiar with the “Myers Cocktail.”
Or if you’re in the San Diego area, you can try my Energizer Formula and see the life-changing results for yourself here at the Stengler Center for Integrative Medicine.
