Fibromyalgia is a condition that could affect both men in women; especially those above 50 years of age. It causes pains and aches all over the body; mainly in the bones and joints as well as in the muscles.
However, persons suffering from fibromyalgia need not live with the pains or take prescription drugs to help manage their condition as there are several natural herbal remedies that could help treat and ease away those pains and discomfort.
A natural way of treating fibromyalgia is through proper dieting consisting of lots of fresh vegetables and fruits. It is good to know that veggies and fruits contains enough antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, and fluids that help hydrate, nourish, protect our joints, muscles, organs, and the whole body from illness, inflammation, and pains; both inside and out.
It is also very important to drink lots of water each day to keep the body hydrated and healthy and thus avoid aches and immense pain.
Doing low impact exercises like yoga is also a natural way to treating fibromyalgia. Yoga helps relieve stress and inflammation in the body; which invariably helps in reducing pains and body aches.
Practicing yoga aids in stretching out the muscles, joints, tissues, and ligaments in our bodies gently and effectively. Stretching our bodies helps loosen up the body muscles and soul instead of being uptight, tight, stiff and all achy. Yoga also helps keep our immune systems working at their best so they can better help fight off ailments and infections that might be causing the fibromyalgia in the first place.
Do you know that just doing yoga alone could help in maintaining a healthy weight and keep blood flowing properly so we can have good circulation throughout our bodies. If blood isn’t flowing properly through the body, it could become cold and stiff therefore resulting to aches and pains all over the body.
Having a good night rest could also go a long way to naturally treating. If our bodies don’t get the proper rest needed; which is a minimum of 4 hours daily; they tend to become weak, achy, ill, and fatigued. If you have insomnia and you are forced to stay awake, then taking valeria root, an herbal remedy, could be an option.
Valeria is a natural sedative that helps the body and mind to relax naturally so you can fall asleep easily and comfortably. Chamomile tea is an option as well when you are finding it difficult to sleep. It is very relaxing and soothing to sip on before bedtime; and it helps calm the mind and the body by hydrating it thus eliminating the probability of more pains.
Another alternative treatment is the use of arnica gel. It is useful in obtaining immediate relief from pains by massaging right into the area of your body that hurts, or better yet find a masseuse that uses arnica gel or oil on you during a massage. The arnica gel or oil is helpful in relieving joint, muscles, and ligament aches and pains. It can also help with speeding up the healing of bruises, sprains, wounds and broken bones.
The final method I will treat here used in relieving fibromyalgia is by soaking in hot sea salt baths. You should know that warm sea salt baths helps in relaxing the muscles, joints, tissues, and ligaments in the body naturally. They even help in relieving stress and calming your mind so you can simply relax. It is also helpful in relieving pain and body aches.
It can even relieve body chills which can sometimes cause pains all over the body. When it comes to relieving fibromyalgia; a simple 30 minutes to 1 hour bath could do the trick.
