Fibro is NOT vitamin deficiency
if you take vitamins and are cured --you did NOT have fibro
it is NOT a hormone disoder
it is NOT a general label for pain
it is a disordr of the nervous system
Fibromyalgia is diagnosed when all other possibilities have been eliminated.
I have Fibromyalgia -Vitamin D3 supplementation has cleared the constant muscle pain. I did high levels for 3 weeks & was pain free. I knocked the dose down to 2000iu's a day & a week later the pain was back. After restarting high levels, the pain is managed again after 3 days.
I personally did 35,000iu per day for 2 months trying to refill my stores. It is highly recommended that you have your vit.D levels tested but my research shows toxicity only at outrageous, long term levels.
I originally did B12 injections daily for a couple of years & then I tried guaifenesin (Dr.St.Amand's protocol) for 10 years but discovered vit.D3 supplementation only recently & that has worked better than anything else!
Vitamin D3 is not a vitamin at all but a necessary hormone that effects the immune system & nearly every aspect of health. Having low Vitamin D levels greatly increases risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, MS (& maybe even FMS)
I don't think that FMS, cancer, MS, etc. is a vitamin deficiency but being deficient can create or greatly exacerbate health problems.
The prescription vitamin D supplements are the wrong type (ergocalciferol ). As warned by the National Institute of Health -
Luckily you can buy vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) over the counter and the upper limits are extremely high. Current recommendations are for 35iu per pound - a 150# person needs minimum of 5250iu per day & the rda is 400iu. This amount is for minimal needs and does not account for depleted stores. March is when stores are at their lowest.
Vitamin D3 deficiency is becoming an epidemic. U.S. RDA are much too low. It is possible that upper atmosphere pollution is blocking the needed UVB light from the sun.
I also highly recommend a low carb way of eating to allow the body to regenerate rather than degenerate.
Fibromyalgia produces widespread pain, disturbed sleep, and exhaustion from head to toe.1 Fibromyalgia means pain in the muscles, ligaments, and tendons—the soft fibrous tissues of the body. Although the muscles hurt everywhere, they are not the only cause of the pain. Instead, the diffuse, body-wide symptoms are greatly magnified by malfunctions in the way the nervous system processes pain
The symptoms of fibromyalgia are unpredictable and most patients are frustrated by their physical limitations and inability to make plans
Fibromyalgia is a chronic muscle pain and can be (most often is) accompanied by fatigue and general discomfort. It mainly affects women, and it's main symptoms are:
- all-around pain the joints
- spine and back pains.
To this day, some medical doctors still fail to acknowledge Fibromyalgia as a legitimate diagnosis. This is in spite of the millions of people world-wide who suffer with the affliction.
As toxic overload has also been linked to fybromyalgia, many people recommend a full body detox as a great way to help fight fybromyalgia and to improve your general health well being.
