Fibromyalgia: Gaining a Hopeful Perspective


Affecting more than 3 million each year, mostly females, Fibromyalgia is a chronic musculoskeletal condition that is often misunderstood. Generally, individuals with Fibromyalgia experience muscle and joint pain across many areas of the body. While these symptoms may be managed to some degree, Fibromyalgia is also linked to depression and anxiety, making it about more than sore muscles and joints. At Houston Health and Wellness, we take an alternative approach to treating patients with Fibromyalgia, helping them gain a hopeful perspective on life.

Non-Conventional Alternatives
When it comes to non-conventional alternatives for treating Fibromyalgia, the greatest approach is found in activities that incorporate both the mind and body. For example, swimming, yoga, or even walking represents low-impact options that also center the mind. While cardiovascular activity is a natural remedy for relieving pain, the low-impact nature of these exercises encourage individuals to focus, which aids in developing better coping strategies.

The Feldenkrais Method, which is an awareness of movement, also combines simple exercises while increasing self-awareness. Reaching, lying to sitting, and turning the head are examples of this method. These can range from easy to complex, based on an individual’s level of comfort. Yet, the idea is to help the patient focus on positions and postures that may be causing them pain. Once they understand the cause of their pain, they can begin to develop healthier movements and postures.

Also helping patients manage the often-debilitating symptoms of Fibromyalgia is Acupuncture and Massage.

As individuals enter treatment with an alternative approach, they will also need to consider their nutrition. The following are considered helpful in combating the effects of Fibromyalgia:

  • Organic Fruits
  • Ginger
  • Tumeric
  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids
  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Malic Acid
