EXCLUSIVE: A Natural Way to Treat Fibromyalgia

The typical fibromyalgia progression
Those of you who know me know that I have one foot planted in Western medicine, the other foot planted firmly in Eastern and so-called "alternative" medicine. The fact is, I am alive today because of both. But I recommend that you try to avoid drugs if and whenever possible.

Which brings me to the topic of fibromyalgia. As a patient advocate, my heart goes out to everyone who suffers from this problematic and often debilitating disease. A chronic musculoskeletal condition, fibromyalgia is identified by persistent pain, fatigue, and tenderness in isolated areas. 


The symptoms vary from person to person, but they typically have a direct and negative impact on the patient's quality of life. And it is a very tough disease to treat.

While fibromyalgia is the second most common musculoskeletal disorder after osteoarthritis, there unfortunately is no surefire treatment plan, and no cure. Many patients find themselves on a variety of prescription meds to help combat symptoms but often find themselves suffering unwanted side effects from these drugs. 

And as a 16-year, three-time survivor of stage IV non-Hodgkin's lymphoma cancer, I am all too familiar with pharmaceutical side effects. I'm sure many of you are, as well.

One of the most popular choices among doctors to prescribe for fibromyalgia pain is Lyrica. But this can be a scary drug, frankly. Yes, it can reduce pain, improve sleep, and help some fibromyalgia patients function better. And I know that's all that matters for people who are suffering. But it can also decrease one's quality of life due to the various risks and side effects.

Those side effects include dizziness, drowsiness, blurred vision, dry mouth, swelling of the hands and free, as well as weight gain while more serious side effects include trouble breathing, hives, and swelling of the face, mouth, gums, lips, tongue, or neck. 

Because of the seriousness and severity of some of these side effects, those suffering from fibromyalgia are looking for an alternate treatment option to naturally relieve pain and other symptoms associated with fibromyalgia. And I've just discovered one that may be of interest to folks who are dealing with fibromyalgia. It's called cupping massage therapy.

It sounds a bit wacky, but apparently it can be effective, if not curative.

Derrick Z. Venter, an expert on naturally treating pain-related disorders such as fibromyalgia, works at Bellabacia South African company that specializes in cupping massage therapy. According to Venter, cupping therapy works for many fibromyalgia patients. 

Venter explains that this "age-old treatment used in Traditional Chinese Medicine" involves the application of heated glass cups to parts of the body. The heat creates a vacuum, he says, which in return releases toxins, clears any blockages, and activates the lymphatic system. 

Venter says cupping therapy allows patients to get the relief they need naturally while posing virtually no risks or side effects compared to more traditional medicinal treatments.

There have been studies performed which prove that the natural treatment of cupping therapy is just as, if not more, effective compared to more traditional treatments. The most recent study regarding the effect of cupping therapy on fibromyalgia patients was performed in 2011, according to Mayo Clinic. 

The study was performed in Beijing with 30 consecutive patients suffering from symptoms of fibromyalgia, including generalized chronic pain. The patients received a traditional cupping treatment every day for 15 days and the intensity of their symptoms prior to starting treatment and 5, 10, 15 days, and 2 weeks following the final treatment. 


Findings concluded that medicinal cupping therapy did in fact relieve symptoms associated with fibromyalgia.

And of course this relief came without the unwanted side effects that often accompany traditional treatment methods. Natural treatment for diseases such as fibromyalgia is becoming increasingly popular among patients as the benefits become clearer.

According to Mayo Clinic, a study in 2011 evaluated the effect of traditional medicinal cupping for fibromyalgia treatment. The study was conducted with 30 consecutive patients suffering from fibromyalgia in Beijing, China. The patients received a traditional cupping treatment every day for 15 days and the intensity of their symptoms prior to starting treatment and 5, 10, 15 days, and 2 weeks following the final treatment. Findings concluded that medicinal cupping therapy did in fact relieve symptoms associated with fibromyalgia.


Venter notes that fibromyalgia and depression often go hand-in-hand as the patient deals with a chronic, frustrating, and often infuriating disorder. By alleviating fibromyalgia symptoms and avoiding unwanted side effects of many pharmaceutical treatments, fibromyalgia patients can lead a more normal lifestyle. 



According to WedMD, some of the other natural, alternative ways of treating fibromyalgia include 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan), a building block of serotonin, whose levels play a significant role in fibromyalgia pain. In one study published in the Alternative Medicine Review, researchers reported that supplementation with 5-HTP may improve symptoms of depression, anxiety, insomnia and fibromyalgia pains. 

Other natural treatments for fibromyalgia include Melatonin which can help receive sleep problems often caused by fibromyalgia, and SAM-e Help, a supplement that treats both fibromyalgia pain and depression.

  5. Nice article on "A Natural Way to Treat Fibromyalgia".
    People diagnosed with fibromyalgia experience a wide range of symptoms, including fatigue,pain,stiffness,aches and muscle tenderness.According tothe theories of acupuncture and Chinese medicine, an imbalance in the flow of Qi can create symptoms and signs that reflect a Western diagnosis offibromyalgia.

  6. A fellowship personal statement is very beneficial for the patients and doctors. After all the majority of your application deals with your grades and qualifications and these are going to be very similar to many of the other applicants so your personal statement for research fellowship applications really is your only opportunity to differentiate yourself from the other applicants.

  8. I have had fibromyalgia for at least 30 years. My initial symptoms were fatigue and lower back pain which were manageable, and I also became sensitive to hot and cold. I'm a 69 year old male working but struggling with pain. It really kicked in in 1999 with widespread pain and extreme fatigue. I went on to develop pneumonia and during my stay in hospital had all the tests which came back positive with just minor wear and tear to my lumber region. I was discharged and told to get on with it and fought my way back to some kind of fitness again. I then had a breakdown and was admitted to a psychiatric ward following a botched suicide attempt. Somehow I clawed my way back to normality but as always the underlying issues were always there. Around 2012 I had another flare up with all the usual issues but this time my skin became sensitive around the back of my neck. Lots of tests over a 12 month period and again everything was positive. During this period I managed to work but, and just about hold my job down. I decided to find a permanent cure ,so one day i saw so many post about perfecthealthherbalmedicinehome,a women posted she was cured totally from fibromyalgia with the help of perfecthealthherbalmedicine,i was so impressed by the post,so i decided to purchase the herbal medicine for fibromyalgia,i receive the herbal medicine within 2 days ,i was told to use the herbal medicine twice daily for 6 weeks,which i did ,after 6 weeks of usage i was free from fatigue ,lower back pain,and all the symptoms disappeared ,now am totally free from fibromyalgia,please contact perfecthealth to get your own cure .

  9. An amazing testimony on a Native Iya Hindi root and herbs who help me to get pregnant, So me and my partner have been trying for a baby for the last 2 years now. I don’t have a regular cycle so it is hard for me to tell when I’m ovulating or not, but we always have sex at least 3 times a week, sometimes more. I know it can take up to a year to conceive but everyone i know who have had a baby have conceived within 2-3months of trying and it is really getting to me. my partner had a fertility test about a year ago and his sperm were fine. I’m thinking it could be a problem with me but I’ve never had any symptoms of any problems. My partner does smoke and have the occasional drink, and i used to smoke and also have the occasional drink. i know i’m slightly overweight but that shouldn’t affect our chances too much, one faithful day my friend told me to contact Native Iya Hindi that help her sister, then i contact the email. hindinative@yahoo.com,He sent the Herbs to me and gave instruction on method after three weeks the doctor confirm that i am pregnant thank you Native Iya Hindi for helping me get a baby, I am thankful for all he had done. contact him via email:(hindinative@yahoo.com .Or whats App number+19145295224), if you are trying to get a baby.

  14. A year ago, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. After years of going to see the doctor, I finally got some answers. The pain I feel seems to never go away-hurting in my lower back, legs, neck, even sometimes radiates to the very tip of my toes,I couldn't move my right arm with out getting a lot of pain. I was 32 years old and I didn't know if I want to see how I feel at 40 because the pain was very intense. I was taking Lyrica, it helps but I still have to be careful not to over do things. I was trying to have a child-don't know if I'll be able to do it! i searched for alternative treatment online and In November, 2016 I started on Health Herbal Clinic fibromyalgia disease natural herbal remedy, my fibromyalgia symptoms including Severe fatigue , Insomnia, nausea and vomiting, deteriorated over the first 6 weeks of the Fibromalgia herbal formula usage, i am now 34 with no trace of Fibromyalgia, visit the clinic website www. healthherbalclinic. net or email info @ healthherbalclinic. net The Fibro herbal formula helped me in a way i just didn’t imagine, this is a breakthrough for all fibromyalgia disease patients.
