Blasting To Fight Fibromyalgia

Blasting To Fight Fibromyalgia

While patients suffering from fibromyalgia often need prescribed medications to deal with their symptoms, a few changes in diet can often help relieve symptoms. Cutting out dairy and processed foods from your diet, as well as increasing your consumption of plant foods, can alleviate much of the physical discomfort. Specifically, omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon and walnuts (among other foods) and antioxidant-dense fruits and vegetables like berries and leafy greens have shown to assist with the symptoms of fibromyalgia.

If you want to start Blasting for fibromyalgia health, include a few of the following foods in your next Blast and feel the difference!

1. Apples, apple cider vinegar, pears, pineapple, grapes

These foods all contain malic acid, a natural compound that plays a vital role in cellular energy production. Malic acid, when consumed with magnesium, has shown to decrease the symptoms of fibromyalgia.

2. Seeds, nuts, legumes, dark green vegetables like kale, collards, spinach, and broccoli

All of these foods contain magnesium, which has shown to reduce the intensity of the body’s stress response, a physical and neurological process that can trigger fibromyalgia symptoms. Magnesium is especially effective when consumed with foods containing malic acid.

3. Almonds, flax seeds, soybeans, garbanzo beans, collard greens, and sunflower seeds

These foods all contain tryptophan, an amino acid used to manufacture melatonin in the brain. When released, melatonin regulates hormonal changes and sleep rhythms, which can both be compromised in patients with fibromyalgia.

4. Ginger, turmeric, flax seeds, chia seeds, avocado

All of these foods help to fight inflammation—a contributing factor in the muscular and skeletal pain that accompanies fibromyalgia. Specifically, ginger contains compounds called gingerols, turmeric contains circumins, and flax, chia, and avocado all contain Omega-3 fatty acids—all of which are powerful anti-inflammatories.

5. Maca Root

This South American superfood has been used for millennia to improve stamina

and fight fatigue in the high-altitude Andes mountain range, making it an excellent energizer for those suffering from fibromyalgia fatigue. You can find powdered maca in the U.S. at most health food stores.

I have had Complex Regional Pain Syndrome from my last posterior anterior back surgery 2 years ago. CRPS spreads and has now taken over my entire body. It is sort of like fibromyalgia but it is nerve damage caused by surgery and the pain is measured to that of someone with terminal cancer. I have done everything that the doctors have told me but nothing is taking the swelling down and only caused more permanent nerve damage. I am praying that what helps with fibromyalgia will give me some kind of relief. If it does, believe me, I will spread the word to anyone else with CRPS.
Thank you God for finding this marvelous website, I have fibromyalgia and it's so painful that from now on I'm going to change my diet and follow your blasting with these recipes, I'm going to trust you and I know my health is going to change. Thanks again.
