One thing that I have found over the years is that my diet was contributing to my symptoms. Kimberly Lord Stewart, in her article, Eat Right to Fight Symptoms of Fibromyalgia-A Good Fibromyalgia Diet Can Relieve Pain and Fatigue, does a great job of laying out varying symptoms and how to possibly find relief.
I particularly like number 4. I've cut and pasted it below:
4. Reduce pain with red fruit.
Cherries and raspberries are more than sweet summer treats. They’re also potent pain reducers. That’s because these fruits contain a compound called anthocyanins, with 10 times the anti-inflammatory relief of aspirin, research shows.
A 2010 study at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland showed that runners who consumed 12 ounces of tart cherry juice twice daily one week before a race and on the day of the event, felt less muscle pain after a 26-mile run.
Tart cherries also may relieve another symptom of fibromyalgia: sleep problems. Insomniacs (age 60 and older) who drank two 8-ounce servings of tart cherry juice (made from 50 cherries) for two weeks reported a modest improvement in sleep, according to a 2010 study at the Sleep and Neurophysiology Research Laboratory in Rochester, N.Y.
I've struggled with eating enough of what's good for me for years. Pizza is a particular love of mine and my wife love the baked spaghetti I make. Right there are two triggers.
Well, I cut out the pasta, bread, gluten and began taking the Juice Plus+ Trio; It contains the phytonutrients of over 30 fruits and vegetables including Raspberries and Cherries.
I have noticed a difference in my daily level of Fibromyalgia inflammation since I began taking the Juice Plus+ almost 4 months ago. I highly recommend that you incorporate Juice Plus+ into your routine.
I am in no way saying this is going to be a cure all. But, if you can get some relief from the unending, unrelenting pain, why not give it a go? You owe it to yourself to at least try.
