Can spas and swim spas provide natural pain relief from Fibromyalgia

Natural Pain Relief For FibromyalgiaHow to find contentment for Fibromyalgia suffers.

Fibromyalgia is a mysterious chronic disease that produces severe pain throughout the body along with exhaustion, sleep problems, depression and anxiety. Not much is known about Fibromyalgia. It is estimated 2 to 4 percent of the population, predominately women, suffer from Fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia affects fibrous tissues in muscles, ligaments and tendons throughout the body causing excruciating pain and debilitating exhaustion and is known to develop alone or along with other conditions of the musculoskeletal system such arthritis or lupus.

CONTENTMENT is truly a state of mind.  Finding it means many things to many people, but the first way to find it is to adjust your expectations of others and self.  Living more in the moment without setting out knowingly to control the process of life around us.  For we can only guide life as it happens to help shape our realities.  The second concept is not writing the story about what is about to happen in the next section of our life.  This means not deciding what is going to happen before it does, and then to force our thoughts into that picture. Manifesting the stories of how things are going to turn out, rather than living life to the fullest.  This causes a huge amount of stress that can breakdown our immune system and our nervous systems which is ultimately one of the things that occurs in Fibromyalgia. 

I having treated several hundreds of patients with Fibromyalgia since the early 1980’s when it had not even been considered a regular diagnosis.  Today, it is actually a diagnosis of exclusion. Meaning that we check for 14-18 pain or pressure points that have been recorded to be present when Fibromyalgia is diagnosed.  The real cause seems to be not just from one item, but several. 

Treatment of Fibromyalgia can involve medications which can have side effects however natural pain relief for Fibromyalgia is possible and includes addressing the physical symptoms, the mental backlog of unresolved issues, the spiritual disruption, and monitoring what feeds the patient.  Extreme stress, a virulent virus, being overstressed, and physical tired with possible low adrenals can all come together to collapse a person into the diagnosis that we call Fibromyalgia.  Once the body has been triggered or a major event has shifted it off its axis, then the fatigue, pain, and other associated symptoms begin.  I have had great success with almost all of those we have treated for Fibromyalgia, but it is not an easy passage to healing.  Because all of the underlying issues that collapsed the person initially are usually still on top of the person emotionally, and that has to be dealt with along with other factors before a change of health can occur. 

There are many things that can help people who have this disorder to get better.  I present just a short list to begin a pathway for those who believe there might not be one.

Spas and Swim Spas may be a very helpful tool because they help to increase core body temperature, soothe muscles, and to help create a healing zone for the patient to relax. Additionally spas and swim spas help to aid in relaxation. It should be noted that although the spas and swim spas may be great for helping with Fibromyalgia, regular small amounts of time is the optimum method since one degree in temperature can influence 10% of the blood circulation overall. So you must be conscious that more is not better.  Also, the spas and swim spas should not be overly hot.  It feels really good, but that will cause filtration of water into the space between the cells in the tissue and that translates to discomfort if over done.  Therefore, a 10-15 minute period each day in a spa or swim spa is optimal for Fibromyalgia suffers.

There are also many nutrients that can help Fibromyalgia.  One such is Malic Acid, which is usually found with Magnesium as “Magnesium Malate”.  This seems to assist tissue in relaxing more and healing faster.  Treatment begins with not only assessing what the current issues are that the person is confronted with, but also the ones that we carry from the past. The important thing to remember is that there is always an answer and healing is yours as you are willing to do the work to get back to a healthier place.  Telling the body the war is over, and it is time to renew and begin again.

Wishing Everyone a Very Happy Holiday Season and see you soon.
