Fibromyalgia Syndrome Simplified

Fibromyalgia has been “trash can” labeled, just as another syndrome, simply because no one is sure what causes fibromyalgia.

It’s not any easy task; fibromyalgia represents a whole barrage of symptoms with groups or clusters of symptoms, which makes it hard to properly diagnose, treat or cure.

Fibromyalgia has been generally thought of as a type of “rheumatic” or inflammatory pain disorder, but instead of involving the joints it’s characterized by a painful tenderness around tendons, surrounding tissue and muscles.

Later in this article I will reveal how some leading researchers now suspect fibromyalgia may be more of a neurological disorder than inflammatory.

How Is Fibromyalgia Classified?

First, let’s look at the diagnostic criteria established more than two decades ago by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) in 1990.

According to ACR guidelines, fibromyalgia symptoms must represent wide spread chronic pain in at least 11 of 18 defined “tender points” of the body.

Currently, these “tender points” are being reconsidered because after all these years of misdiagnosing people. Doctors have finally accepted the possibility that there is more to fibromyalgia then just inflammatory pain.

Other symptoms may include:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Sleep disorders
  • Mental issues

Fibromyalgia is like electricity: we can say we know a lot about it, but we still can’t explain exactly what it is.

The Adrenal Connection


Common Adrenal Fatigue symptoms are: *Cravings for sugar, *Cravings for salt on food when you eat, *Feel dehydrated and thirsty and require plenty of water, *Difficulty falling asleep at night, sleep lightly or wake early or often, *Difficulty relaxing, nervous, anxious or hyperactive, *Often spacey, or foggy thinking, even memory loss,* Lack willpower to accomplish, *General exhaustion,*Hormone imbalances, *Low libido,*Weight gain, especially in abdomen and waist area, *Losing muscle tone, *Sagging skin, dry, yellow or pale in color, *Hair starting to gray, thin out and become dry, *Lips losing their color,*Loss of appetite, *Anorexia, *Weight loss,*High blood sugar

Fibromyalgia can also be related to a decreased adrenal function or adrenal fatigue. There are a few other diseases that also have an adrenal system component, such as: chronic fatigue syndrome, alcoholism, ischemic heart disease, hypoglycemia, rheumatoid arthritis and recurrent respiratory infections.

I am mentioning this because it’s important to identify where fibromyalgia and other disease patterns overlap in the hope of finding better solutions than what are typically offered.

It’s also interesting to note that researchers have found circulatory abnormalities in as many as 30% of fibromyalgia patients in preliminary studies (3).

Here’s another interesting piece of research from the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA):

The Invisible Symptoms Of The Silent Killer HBP Revealed

Did you know in 2009, an estimated 785,000 Americans had their first heart attack, and of those about 470,000 will have another? That means about every 25 seconds an American has a heart attack and about every minute someone dies as a result.1

That makes High Blood Pressure (HBP) the #1 cause of sudden death America. HBP is called “The Silent Killer” because for most people their first symptom is a heart attack or death. Why is that?

Medical Myth: HBP has no cure and there are no symptoms.

Truth is every action has a reaction, every cause has an effect and every dis-ease has its symptoms.

I’m sure you’d agree that if you simply don’t know what to look for, you’ll never find it. Right?

I want you to know that worrying yourself to death is NOT your only option. So, today, I hope to help you learn how to stop a heart attack before it happens. Once you can recognize the effects of HBP, then you can better address the cause(s).

There’s no need to worry about curing your HBP if you’ll focus on the root cause of it.

Uncommon Sense

Common sense is no longer “common” because so many people have become confused by all the mixed messages concerning their health care. As an independent medical investigator, consumer health advocate and author, I’ve found even doctors find it hard to keep up with all the advancing scientific discoveries and still manage their practices. Helping make common sense more “common” is why Home Cures That Work (HCTW) is such an exciting publication for both professionals and laymen alike.

Home Cures That Work helps keep intelligent people like you in the loop.

New Science Based On Time-Tested Remedies

The business of Western medicine, the American Medical Association (AMA), is actually quite young —historically speaking —and as a result, has made many costly mistakes over the past 160 years. One of them was the exclusion of all holistic, alternative and ancient time-tested medicine of the east.

The good news is America is finally realizing the benefits of joining ancient healing wisdom with cutting-edge medical science.

Cutting Edge Health Breakthroughs

Because of recent breakthroughs in epigenetics,” we now know your hypertension is NOT usually determined by your genes. In fact, HBP is a direct response to your whole environment. The incorrect belief that your body was only a chemical machine without any intelligent design has caused untold suffering in the world.

The truth will set you free!

You are NOT a victim of chance and your fate was NOT determined by faulty genetics. Believing degenerative disease is nothing but a drug deficiency condemns you to counting on the dark side of western medicine to repair, replace or remove your “mechanical parts” when they finally breakdown. That’s just wrong and it doesn’t have to be that way — at all.

The key to unlocking the cure to any dis-ease is to understand the real cause of the problem. Once you grasp the nature of “cause and effect,” it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to learn what to do.

Knowing your hypertension can be prevented, reversed or cured definitely determines your results.

“Since both in importance and time, health precedes disease, so we ought to consider first how health may be preserved, and then how one may best cure disease.” ~ Galen 170 A.D.

If you recall, back in the HCTW Volume1, Issue 10, I revealed how you can successfully reverse the degenerative effects of dis-ease by first identifying the root cause.

I call it “The 7 Rungs of The Health and Wellness Ladder.
