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.
