Managing Fibromyalgia – There is no cure?

Most of you have probably looked at many different websites regarding Fibromyalgia just like I have. One common theme I see is that “There is no cure.”

I find this very irritating because there is a solution for Fibromyalgia, but it’s not well known. Since very few people know about it, they cannot tell you about it.

The reason everyone thinks there’s no cure, and the reason they say you have to simply manage Fibromyalgia, is because the causes have not been discovered by modern medicine. And they never will be. Now this is not a knock against modern medicine, but it does have its limits. Modern medicine usually looks at the body as if there is something chemically. And that chemistry must be changed with medication to enhance a person’s quality of life. The problem with this approach is it works against nature by altering biochemistry instead of enhancing it.

Most people with Fibromyalgia have been prescribed an array of pain reducing medications that do help with pain, but do nothing to solve Fibromaylgia. As the years go by, more potent medications are needed to get the same level of relief. Forget about Ibuprofen and Tylenol doing anything at all. Only powerful narcotics will do. This is sad, but when you hurt, all you want is relief.

The reason modern medicine will never find a solution is they are looking in the wrong place. Over and over I see on the web that there are no specific tests for Fibromyalgia. And this is true. But I can diagnoses Fibromyalgia in a few seconds, by lightly squeezing the tissue in the back of the arm. If the person jumps in pain they have Fibromyalgia. How fast they jerk away lets me know to what degree. Now most of you will hardly think this is scientific because you’re looking for a lab test that proves you have Fibromyalgia. I could see a test showing the inflammation in a persons body being somewhat helpful, but having that test does nothing to tell you what to do to treat the problem.

Fibromyalgia is a three part problem that needs all three parts to be corrected. None of them involve medications luckily. As your body calms down and hurts less, people find that they can decrease their medication dosages (with their doctors permission) and they find that the less powerful medications now help them. Eventually they can get off everything as their body heals and resumes a more normal state of function.

If you look at the Body Pain page of this site, I cover the three problems: Inflammation, Poor Mechanics and Digestive Problems. Now to quench your pain you have to deal with the inflammation. The medical profession handles this with medication to interrupt the inflammatory process and give you pain relief. But they’re completely unaware of what’s causing the inflammation. This is unfortunate, because once you realize the cause, the treatment is usually quite easy. With the Fibromyalgia sufferer, you get to the root cause of the inflammation with digestive enzymes. I realize this means taking pills, but these are not medications. In fact, they start healing your body AND give pain relief concurrently. It’s safe, natural and extremely effective.

The medical profession will also never recognize the mechanical problems that exist in people with Fibromyalgia. As most of you know I am a chiropractor. Please don’t hold that against me. You’ve probably already tried chiropractic and it either failed to help you or it helped you so little that it wasn’t worth the money or it made you worse. I can relate. After years of traditional chiropractic care, I too was more messed up, not better. But there’s another way that’s described in detail on the DVD you can purchase on this website. It involves joint manipulation, but it’s very much opposite of standard chiropractic care. You have to understand that there are bones in the human body that can get knocked out of place in directions our body cannot self correct. These bones are actually stuck in a bad position and can never correct themselves on their own because there are no muscles that physically exist to reposition each bone. When you start getting the correct type of care to correct these bones, your body starts to improve. Often very quickly. It’s like nothing you’ve ever done, but no amount of talking can get you to understand that. It’s something you have to physically experience.

Whenever medical doctors realize a person has a problem they cannot handle with medication, they usually send them to a Physical Therapist. Have you noticed that? Well the reason is that Physical Therapists work with muscles and bones in ways that medical doctors are not trained in. The medical doctor passes off the responsibility to the physical therapist and if that doesn’t work the doctor either try’s a different medication or refers to a surgeon or says you’ll have to live with it. I went down that road many years ago prior to even considering becoming a chiropractor.

I had been seeing a chiropractor and a physical therapist at the same time, but I got a lot more relief from the chiropractor than the physical therapist. I remember one day being at the orthopedists office (who referred me to the physical therapist) and told him what my chiropractor was doing that was giving me so much relief. Now the relief didn’t last, but that’s a different story. At that time I didn’t realize the contention between the medical profession and the chiropractic profession. I just wanted to let the orthopedist know what was helping me. I even offered to show him what the chiropractor was doing that gave me so much relief. I actually tried adjusting the orthopedist in his office. Remember, I was studying to be an electrical engineer, not a chiropractor at the time. I had no idea what I was doing, but it seemed simple enough and I was motivated to tell my story to the orthopedist. Nothing ever came of it and I’m sure the orthopedist was like, “whatever” afterwards, but I was excited he was willing to listen to me.

Now it might sound like I have a problem with the medical profession. I do in some respects and I blatantly admit that because I’ve seen their therapies cause harm to people. But at the same time, if I have my leg broke in a car accident, don’t take me to the chiropractor. I want a medical doctor/orthopedist giving me care. I want the drugs for the pain. I want relief. But when it comes to chronic problems like Fibromyalgia, they have no clue what to do. It must be very frustrating for them as doctors. It would be like me trying to treat someone with cancer. I simply won’t have any idea how to do it. Also if someone comes to me with a broken bone, I’ll send them right to the emergency room.

It’s impossible to have every doctor in our country know about every type of therapy for every condition. But with Fibromyalgia there is a way. If you haven’t heard about it yet, I’m not surprised. Read the page on Body Pain and you’ll get the main concepts. Order the DVD that educates you on the mechanical causes of Fibromyalgia and you’ll get the details on the mechanical problems that affect every man, woman and child in our country. Put the inflammation, mechanical problems and digestive disorders together and you have Fibromyalgia.

Don’t let anyone tell you there isn’t a “cure” for Fibromyalgia. There’s a way out of the pain. There’s a way out of the condition. There’s the opportunity to say to someone that you got rid of your Fibromyalgia. Even if you had to fly to Madison Wisconsin and get treated by me for a week you would see there’s hope. Hopefully you can find someone closer to you, but if you can’t there are options.

Have faith, hope and courage to face the problems in front of you. I dedicated my whole life to finding solutions to solve peoples pain. This website is one of those endeavors to get this information out to the public and to make a difference in peoples lives.
