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!
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.
After reading Fibro Fix, I found a functional medicine doctor in my area. They are listed on the national website. My doctor uses a group to address a variety of fibro symptoms - mind and body. It’s a 6-12 month process and he’s not covered by insurance. After 30 days I have hope that I will be the person I was before fibro. Fibro caused me to retire early, lose my home and my fiancé, and I had to hire people to help me with everything. I lost my friends and lost hope that I would ever get better. It’s been a nightmare. There are many good books out now about helping yourself. If you don’t get a functional medicine doctor, I strongly encourage you to read as many Fibro cure books and take your health into your own hands. Good luck everyone. ❤️
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.
I do agree with some that Fibro does change your life & you as a person too ,
Have to listen to our bodies & slow down ,

Turmeric with some honey & black pepper helps with headaches , pain & inflammation .
Stretching with some warm oil massages are effective too !
