Fibromyalgia Syndrome Natural Remedies

Those with fibromyalgia experience so many sleep problems (insomnia, bruxism, restless leg syndrome, etc.), that they often have chronic fatigue. One of the remedies is to have a regular daily exercise.


Natural Remedies

  • Put 4-6 oz. of ginger powder into a somewhat hot bath, to induce sweating and remove toxins. Drinking hot ginger tea has a similar effect.


Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D. (director of The Annapolis Center for Effective CFS/Fibromyalgia Therapies), says that fibromyalgia is specifically caused by a long term lack of deep sleep. He has treated hundreds of patients, with over 85% cured or improved to the point that their symptoms are no longer a problem. He treats the problem as a malfunction of the hypothalamus, the master gland in the brain. He suggests using each of the following for six months:

  • Valerian (160-480 mg) for its calming effect and lemon balm (80-240 mg) before bedtime.
  • Kava kava (200-750 mg) before bedtime to relax the nerves. 
  • Melatonin (200-300 mcg) before bedtime to help you go to sleep. 
  • Magnesium (200 mg daily). 
  • Deep massage: Put three fingers on an area of muscle tension or tenderness; apply enough pressure so your fingers won’t slide. Make 5-10 circular motions, rubbing just hard enough to produce mild discomfort only. Then move a hand-width away, to a new area, and begin again. He says to also take a high-potency multi-vitamin supplement.

Research studies have demonstrated each of the following:

  • An early study found that vitamin E (100-300 IU daily) produced positive and sometimes dramatic results.
  • Fibromyalgia patients are low in vitamin B1 and thiamine.
  • Cayenne, applied topically, alleviates the pain.
  • Chlorella also decreases the pain. All deep green vegetables also help do this as well.
  • Aloe vera (taken orally), olive leaf, and St. John’s wort each reduce the symptoms.
  • Melatonin helps correct the impairment of Slow Wave Sleep (deep sleep) experienced by the patients.
  • Magnesium deficiency within muscle fibers is believed to be a factor in causing fibromyalgia.
  • Taking malic acid has caused significant improvement in the number of tender joints. It binds and removes aluminum with iron (or just aluminum) from the brain and excretion of aluminum and iron from the body. The best single source of malic acid is prunes. The other good sources are apples, limes, passion fruit, raspberry leaf, quinces, cherries, peaches, apricots, nectarines, plums, grapes, strawberries, pears, and tomato. It is also in the herb fennel.
  • Researchers give 2,400 mg per day of malic acid, combined with 600 mg magnesium, in order to achieve good results in patients. Malic acid is available from health-food stores in both tablet and capsule forms. (The two forms are calcium malate and magnesium malate.)
  • Being happy helps fight pain and inflammatory conditions. Cheerfulness and even laughter stimulates the brain to produce catecholamines (known as “alertness hormones”); these trigger the release endorphins, which are natural painkillers.
