(NaturalNews) Studies indicate that home care and common remedies available from grocery and health food stores are effective for Fibromyalgia pain treatment. The term fibromyalgia is used as a generic clinical nomenclature to describe a collection of symptoms including wide-spread, chronic muscle and joint pain, chronic fatigue and weakness, depression and a melange of other troubling health conditions, according to Dr. Robert Bennett of Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland. Patients diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome receive little relief from popular conventional drug treatments that merely suppress symptoms and do nothing to reverse suffering or restore health. Based on the effects of various alternative products and home-based fibromyalgia pain treatments, some patients find considerable relief from the use of a multi-disciplinary approach.

Avoiding Nightshade Vegetables and MSG Reduces Fibromyalgia Joint Pain

The toxic compound solanine is found in certain common vegetables called nightshades. When ingested, solanine contributes to the musculoskeletal aches and pains of fibromyalgia causing stiffness, joint pain and inflammation throughout the body in certain individuals. The nightshade vegetables consist of all peppers, white potatoes, eggplant, tomatoes and tobacco. Muscle and joint pain relief may be obtained by eliminating these vegetables from the diet.

Laura A. Coleman and R. Roubenoff discuss in their book, "Nutrition and Rheumatic Disease (Nutrition and Health)", the role of MSG on the body and mind. Many of the symptoms of MSG mimic those of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Weakness, sadness, confusion, difficult cognitive processes, joint pain, body soreness, inflammation and swelling are only a few of the side effects from this dangerous flavor enhancer and preservative. Eating organic and raw foods prepared at home and eliminating packaged commercial foods from the diet assist people in fibromyalgia therapy.

Alkalizing the Body Reduces Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia Symptoms

Fibromyalgia pain and disability virtually disappear when the body pH is slightly alkaline. Using foods to create an alkaline-forming state in the blood is the easiest and most effective way to achieve a change in pH. Adding one or more of the following foods to the diet on a daily basis helps to balance the system eliminating fibromyalgia joint pain, muscle stiffness and swelling, as well as weakness from chronic fatigue syndrome. Headaches disappear and the mood is elevated.

Organic apple cider vinegar
Lemons and lemon juice
Cream of Tartar
Tart cherry juice
Alkaline-forming ancient grains such as amaranth, quinoa and millet


Consuming Turmeric Helps with Fibromyalgia Pain Treatment

The active ingredient curcumin, found in the Indian spice turmeric, has been shown to be an extremely effective anti-inflammatory whose effects are well documented for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia pain treatment. Available in powdered form in capsules, this ancient spice may be added to the diet daily. The recommended dose is 400-600 mg three times a day to reduce joint pain and inflammation.

Homeopathic Remedies Treat Fibromyalgia with Efficacy

Double blind trials have been conducted using the homeopathic remedy Rhus Tox, and according to a report submitted by the Complimentary and Alternative (CAM) Review Board in September 2009, results are promising. Reports indicate that fibromyalgia patients taking the remedy have experienced a significant reduction in pain, stiffness and weakness from fibromyalgia pain. Rhus Tox is well known for the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Rhus Tox is available at health food stores and may be administered at home, but patients should see a qualified homeopath for suggestions concerning frequency and dosage.

No one home remedy will necessarily resolve symptoms of fibromyalgia joint pain or chronic fatigue syndrome, but a combination of approaches using alternative methods are effective for most fibromyalgia treatment plans.
