8 Surprising Causes Of Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia has long been a bit of a mystery because the cause is hard to pinpoint. Since the symptoms vary, and the cause is unclear, some practitioners view Fibromyalgia as an entirely mental or emotional illness. Debates still remain whether Fibromyalgia is a disease or a syndrome, but it is finally getting the attention it deserves. However, recent research shows there are many possible contributing factors to this painful and limiting “invisible” diagnosis.
Overgrowth Of Bacteria In The Small Intestine
Our intestines naturally contain bacteria, which are required to maintain a perfect balance. However, unhealthy dietary choices and prescriptions medications can throw this balance out of whack—resulting in small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). A recent study published in the World Journal of Gastroenterology found that 100% of Fibromyalgia participants, of a sample size of 42, exhibited SIBO. Symptoms of SIBO are sometimes overlooked, but include indigestion, bloating, and digestive discomfort.
Our bodies require anti-oxidants to flush out the harmful toxins we eat, breathe, and are exposed to daily. However, not all anti-oxidants are created equally. Glutathione is a vital antioxidant that clears harmful free radicals, heavy metals, and pollutants. Those who are low on Glutathione are at higher risk for Fibromyalgia, and can turn to supplements to help restore internal balance.
Chronic Exposure To Mold
Mold releases harmful mycotoxins, which increase the risk for Fibromyalgia, skin disorders, respiratory concerns, and other diseases. While occasional exposure to mold is inevitable, chronic exposure can be harmful to your health. The easiest way to test for mycotoxins is to request a urine test to detect for mold exposure.
Candida is a yeast that naturally occurs in our bodies, and is essential for absorption and digestion. However, when overgrowth occurs—toxins are released through the intestinal walls and into the bloodstream. If not quickly identified, this increases your risk for digestive disorders, brain fog, fatigue, and overall decreased immunity. Almost everyone suffering from Fibromyalgia has an overgrowth of intestinal candida.
Mercury poisoning or over exposure to mercury can have a severe and adverse impact on the nervous system. The most common cause of mercury toxicity comes from diets high in deep sea fish and seafood. Common symptoms of poisoning include headaches, fatigue, autoimmune disorders, muscle weakness, cognitive decline, and mood disorders. Anyone with Fibromyalgia can request a urine test for mercury toxicity levels.
If your adrenal glands are working overtime, it can cause adrenal fatigue. Chronic pain is often the result of adrenal fatigue. The most common causes of adrenal stress include food allergies, internal toxicity, bacteria overgrowth, and nutrient deficiency.
If your body cannot properly digest gluten, the symptoms are surprisingly not all digestive. According to the Journal of America Medical Association, gluten intolerance is the underlying cause of 55 diseases—one of which is Fibromyalgia. Other symptoms of gluten allergy include insomnia, fatigue, depression, aches and pain, and brain fog.
A side effect of many of the health concerns above is nutrient deficiency. Studies show that vitamin deficiency is a primary cause of Fibromyalgia, particularly deficiency in calcium, malic acid, magnesium, vitamin D, and Vitamin B12.
Identify The Cause—And Treat Fibromyalgia Pain With Magnetic Resonance Therapy
While it is important to identify the underlying cause of Fibromyalgia, it is equally important to support your body in the recovery process. Many patients turn to magnetic resonance therapy to address both their pain and speed up the return to internal balance. You watch the video of Connie to see what magnetic therapy did for her.
