What Diet Changes Have You Tried That Has Helped Your Symptoms?

Does anyone have tips for diet changes? I’ve heard things like cutting dairy, gluten, processed foods, etc. I was wondering if anyone has tried anything and if it has worked for you?

Everyone is so different. What works for one person, may not work for another. I know that each of us has to take the time and effort to find out what is best for their body. I gave up sodas long ago. I drink mostly water and occasionally unsweetened tea. In the evenings I may drink chamomile tea. I try my best to stay away from sugar and a lot of carbs, and don't eat meat except for chicken and occasionally fish. I do stretching exercises most mornings with a little yoga also. If I have to go out on days I am not working, I try to not stay out more than 2-3 hrs. otherwise I am exhausted, especially if I have to walk. I am learning what works for me. On weekends I try to nap for a couple of hrs. in the afternoon. That helps me. I hope these suggestions help anyone that tries them. Gentle hugs to all!

Elimination diet.Only natural sugars; fruit, veggies. No lactose. Organic milk and chicken. Sprouted wheat. Alot of green veggies or green mixtures/powders.I don't know if this help me with fibro but; only white meat minus pork. Salmon; wild atlantic. There is probably more just can't think of it all at this moment.

After having been in that "hole* that you feel you cannot seem to escape from for a long and painful time, I saw a little item in a wellness magazine that steered me (indirectly) to gather information on an alkaline diet. I researched further and found a 7 day acid detox and thought "it's worth a try'. When I felt well enough I went shopping at a bulk wholefoods shop for all I needed. I was amazed to find that within 4 days my joints and bones weren't constantly paining and my muscles weren't as stiff. I feel 500% better. After finishing the 7 day detox I'm trying to keep on a low acid diet, but adding a wider variety than on the detox. This has helped me more than anything I've ever tried before. I hope it may help others too. As always though, research to suit your medical needs.

I cant eat beef, pork,pasta, bread, potatoes, dairy, or anything with flour.. because it causes me to have full FIBRO flare ups. Since I quit eating all of those I don't have to take any of the medications anymore and I have better energy to actually be able to get up and do something without pain without the fatigue without sleeping 18 to 20 hours a day which is what I was doing before I made the changes in March

Has anyone tried the guaifenisen protocol by Dr. R. Paul St. Amand? I’ve just been reading his book “What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia. The Revolutionary Treatment That Can Reverse the Disease”. I just joined a local group of fribro warriors following the protocol and it sounds amazing but kind of complicated to get started on.
