Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder that causes widespread pain and tenderness in the muscles and soft tissue (including tender points) as well as sleep problems, fatigue, and a variety of other symptoms. These problems can be severe enough to disrupt a person’s work and daily activities. Fortunately, the condition does not permanently damage the muscles, joints, or internal organs.

There are many theories as to what may cause fibromyalgia, but at this point there is not enough evidence to support any single cause. Some theories suggest that fibromyalgia may be related to oversensitive nerve cells, an imbalance of chemicals in the brain (neurotransmitters), or an inability of the brain or spinal cord to dampen pain signals.

I have treated approximately 250 individuals over the years with such a problem here are the patterns noted:

1. Virtually all individuals suffer from weakness of the bladder and/or kidneys. Please note that weakness does NOT mean disease. It is referring to doing 50% or 60% of what it is capable of, instead of doing 100% which the organ should be doing. As such, uric acid is not being removed properly from the body. This builds over time and the common symptoms stated above are experienced.

2. Recent research has shown that a type of calcium, virtually identical to plaque (commonly formed on teeth) builds on the muscles themselves, causing symptoms associated with fibromyalgia. In either event, treatments focus on improving the functioning of the kidneys and the bladder.

A common protocol looks like this:

A – A-C Carbamide from Standard Process. This formula improves the functioning of the kidney/bladder region as well as acts as a diuretic.

B – Albaplex also from SP. Removes any infections from the affected 2 areas.

C – Finally, one of the most powerful herbs in the materia media is used called Fo-Ti. It is considered the finest, long term kidney tonic known.

** Please note that the above is just an example of a treatment. Finding the exact cause, noting the constitution of the individual and addressing his/her specific are the ONLY way to treat this or any other problem with success.

In addition, reduce the amount of water consumed for a while and focus on ingesting cranberry and pineapple juices. Foods such as cilantro and parsley are a must.
