Natural Pain Treatments for Fibromyalgia Sufferers
It has been estimated that nearly 20 million Australians suffer from fibromyalgia, a painful and often debilitating muscular condition which primarily affects women. Those who endure this condition frequently suffer from pain ranging from mild to severe, and almost every part of the body is affected.
The Symptoms of Fibromyalgia
Chronic muscle fatigue, tightness and spasms are not the only symptoms of this often undiagnosed medical issue. Other symptoms include:
- Moderate to severe fatigue
- A marked decrease in energy
- Reduced mental capabilities (i.e. difficulty remembering, concentrating or performing simple tasks)
- Migraine headaches
- Anxiety and depression
- An irritable bladder
Seeking Treatment For A Mysterious Condition
What makes fibromyalgia particularly frustrating to those who suffer from it is that the medical community has little idea as to what is causing it and how it can be treated.
While in some countries there are medications which can be prescribed, in Australia the amount of medications which can be prescribed are extremely limited. This is because Australian licensing requires that research must be done in Australia in order for a medication to become licensed.
There are remedies which we can explore, however, that are often just as effective as a prescribed medications. For those who are overweight or obese, losing weight has been shown to help improve symptoms. Physiotherapy and acupuncture have also shown positive results in terms of treating the severity of symptoms an individual may face.
Supplements are also available to help those suffering from fibromyalgia, with one of the most effective being MSM (Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane).
Our sulfur-based compounds here at MISMO help fibromyalgia sufferers in a number of ways, including:
¢Reducing the soreness of muscles and the occurrence of cramps
¢Inhibiting pain impulses because of MSMs anti-inflammatory properties
¢Balancing and improving your immune system
¢Increasing circulation and blood supply
¢Restoring sulfur deficiencies and balancing your blood glucose levels
MSM has also been shown to help eliminate toxins and allergens from the body because of its ability to increase cell permeability while reducing water pressure in cells.
We at MISMO are proud to offer Australian-made MSM products to those suffering from a variety of conditions. Our 100% MSM powder is the perfect nutritional supplement and can be even made more affective when used in combination with other supplements, such as amino acids.
