t’s hard enough to live with pain and fatigue every day of your life. Without people claiming you can be cured of you do the right thing.
The reality is that the spectrum of these illnesses are so different that some things work for others and some don’t. Some swear by chiropractic care, I choose acupuncture provided by a physiotherapist. Some people can work full time and cope, I found that reducing to 30 hours a week dramatically improved my life.
I’ve read about an approach that recommends the eradication of salicylates, which is hard because they seem to be in just about everything.
Another recommends a specific drug. Another detoxification.
But the most recommended approach, the one that I take, is to try to live as healthily as possible. The way we are all supposed to live.
I recently came across a fantastic website resource for a guide to a way of living as healthily as possible –
This person has fibromyalgia and works with clients who have fibromyalgia, she’s compiled a website with a whole range of useful tools to consider trying.
I knew she was the real deal when I read:
“I do not endorse a cure. However, it has brought my severe fibro pain from a 7, 8 or 9 level to a 2, 3, or 4 level.”
She shares a great “protocol” that she follows.
Essentially it is healthy eating, gentle exercise, supplementation of vitamins or minerals you’re short of, meditation and good sleep.
It is worth a squizz as I found it encouraging. She affirms many of my approaches. Including things I’m trying to be firm on after realising they’re so useful -honouring your body clock and resting enough.
While it’s not good to dwell on your symptoms, it is good to research and try positive ways to be well. This is one resource I will go back to again and again.
