Fibromyalgia is a common and complex chronic condition characterized by body-wide pain and tenderness in the muscles, tendons and other soft tissues, as well as sleep disturbances and fatigue. Some people also experience problems with cognitive functioning, IBS, headaches or migraines, anxiety, depression and environmental sensitivities. There is a big overlap between Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, making Fibromyalgia one of the hardest conditions to diagnose and treat.
A natural therapeutic approach will combine pain and sleep management with a course of vitamins, minerals and herbal supplements to correct deficiencies and promote a significant improvement in symptoms.
