The 7 Triggers That Cause Fibromyalgia and How to Cure Them Holistically
And more pain...
Needless to say, Fibromyalgia is a real problem... even if your doctor, family and boss all say it's in your head.
It can often leave us feeling helpless, depressed and especially isolated.
It’s tough - when nobody truly understands what you’re going through. And you can tell from their attitude, that they don’t really think you’re sick...
When friends and family say things like, ‘just get up and be active, and the pain will go away.’ They just don’t get it.
It’s not easy to understand the dilemmas that most Fibromyalgia sufferers go through either.
What diet should we follow, if every one we try, either doesn’t work, or is too difficult to maintain?
What medicine can we take to cure the pain without causing worse side effects in our bodies?
How do we stay active if every exertion causes more pain? And we can barely get out of bed.
It’s not as simple as a diet change or a magic pill.
In fact, there’s a deadly combination of multiple, subtle triggers affecting our bodies that contribute to Fibromyalgia.
Seven triggers to be exact - and any one of them could cause intense Fibromyalgia flare-ups. This means - there is no ONE thing you can do to bring relief from Fibromyalgia.
As you become aware of these triggers, and understand how to prevent them, it becomes very possible to live a more normal life.
The purpose of this article is to make you aware of these 7 triggers, and teach you how they contribute to Fibromyalgia and how to change your life to prevent these triggers from causing unwanted flare-ups.
Let’s get right into it...
Trigger 1. Biological Individuality - Your Metabolic Type
To deal with Fibromyalgia requires understanding that we’re different, and that we need to treat our bodies differently. We do not react to food and stress the same way most people do, and because of that, we’re forced to make changes. And these differences can be huge among Fibromyalgia sufferers, too.
The issue is: we often do not know what change to make…
We’re all different in our own ways, and even two people with the same Fibromyalgia symptoms will often have very different causes that trigger their symptoms.
This is the reason that some people can go on a raw vegan diet and feel great, while others may develop an extreme flare-up.
Because of this, the very first step to fighting Fibromyalgia is to learn the unique triggers that causeFibromyalgia in the first place. The pain comes from inflammation.
Metabolic Typing will tell us what foods we should avoid, and what foods we should be eating so we can feel confident that we’re not adding to our Fibromyalgia problems with our diets.
After we understand what our specific metabolic type is, we can build our diets around that information and building health becomes a lot easier when we aren’t eating foods that make us more acidic than we should be.
To learn what your unique metabolic type is, there are 3 challenges you need to take over the course of the week.
These challenges are:
1. The Carb Challenge - learn how your body reacts to certain carbohydrates that enter your body. Can you eat gluten? Can you eat rice? This challenge will tell all.
2. The Protein Challenge - learn which proteins (if any) your body will agree with. Is red meat what’s causing a lot of your pain? Find out by taking this challenge.
3. The Hunger Challenge - what state is your body naturally in when you’re not taking in any foods? Are you acidic? Are you alkaline? Are you neutral? What types of foods can you eat if so?
You can learn more about the carb challenge by visiting … it’s free, and it takes only one week to learn what is healing and what is poisonous to your body.
Or, if you’d like to save yourself the time and trouble, you can take the online Metabolic Typing test that will give you results in less than one day, you can access the test here:
Trigger 2 - Malnutrition
Malnutrition is a very common problem, so it can often get overlooked by people suffering from Fibromyalgia.
Besides the most common symptoms - bloating, burping, or passing gas - indigestion and malnutrition also makes it difficult for our bodies to extract the nutrients form our food. And many times, we choose foods that are low in nutrients.
This means that our body doesn’t have what it needs to provide ourselves the energy necessary to fight the fibro within ourselves.
To improve digestion, it’s important that we take enzymes, and probiotics. Abzorb is a commonly used combination of both that enhances digestion quickly.
Fibrenza and Humic Acid are often taken as well, as they provide the vital nutrients to the gut where they’re absorbed and distributed to the rest of the body.
Trigger 3 - Dehydration
I shouldn’t have to tell you that drinking enough water everyday is important. This is a no-brainer and quick-fix. Drink 8 glasses of water every single day.
Two glasses in the morning to start you off and 6 throughout the day. Water is necessary for us to function - and for Fibromyalgia sufferers, and the stress load placed on our bodies, having enough water everyday becomes an absolute necessity.
You can get much better results with structured, energized water.
Water gets in and out of your cells through the aquaporin channels, one molecule at a time. Ordinary water (bottled, tap) picks up a static charge on its way to you that causes it to form clusters that are too large to pass through the channels; only a small percentage of it is in the form that will hydrate at the cellular level. Ordinary water will irrigate, but not hydrate.
When you process the water with our crystal devices, these clusters are broken up, and the percentage of single, free water molecules improves dramatically. You will need to drink less, and you will feel better with water processed by our Prills treatment. It will be like turning raisins back into grapes - old cells filling with moisture again.
Trigger 4 - Stagnation: Low Circulation of Bodily Fluids
Feel stiff whenever you sit down for an extended period of time? Do you feel soreness whenever you extend your limbs? Feel like you never have any energy to do anything fun anymore?
Although it’s difficult, and often can feel impossible at times - it’s ALWAYS important for us to exercise.
30 minutes a day, moving around, and allowing your bodily fluids to travel through your body will pay dividends in the long run.
Yes, it might be difficult, and yes, there may be times where it actually is impossible - but targeting the rest of these 6 triggers will provide you the relief you need to incorporate more exercise in your lifestyle.
Again - it’s not a recommendation - it is a necessity. Fibromyalgia is the most painful when our bodies are stagnant, and we need to exercise daily to prevent this stagnation from occurring in the first place.
The best tool by far is the rebounder.
Just 10 minutes on your rebounder is enough to get your lymph circulating, and moving the toxic deposits back into action. When you get off the rebounder, you can expect to feel joy from the extra oxygen in your blood, and over time a reduction of all symptoms because you detoxify. It is like turning a swamp into a fast-flowing creek - where stagnating and putrefying material is swept away.
And best of all? It can be extremely gentle.
Trigger 5 - Waste and Toxins
As the world becomes more innovative, we’re exposed to more and more toxins every single day. Toxins from our foods, environments, phones, and interactions with other people begin to fill our bodies with waste. Even our dental fillings, or drugs like vaccines, put heavy metals like mercury and lead into our systems.
This tends to become a huge contributor to various Fibromyalgia symptoms, and it’s our responsibility to rid ourselves of these toxins.
Look at your body like a fish bowl. Eventually, the fish bowl will accumulate enough waste material from the fish and surrounding bacteria that the entire fish bowl will become polluted.
This is like our body, if we don’t clean it, it will become polluted. It becomes nearly impossible for our everyday bodily functions, especially the functions we need to fight symptoms of fibromyalgia to work properly.
Therefore, it’s important for us to detoxify.
We do this 3 different ways:
1. Regular visits to the bathroom (2-3 times per day).
2. Sweating, get your cardio up by running, biking, or doing home workouts that are high intensity workouts.
3. Use a detox to flush the toxins out of your body that options 1 and 2 can’t get rid of. Zeolite is a strong, natural detox that works well for people who have Fibromyalgia and don’t want flare ups from their detox.
4. Introduce microbes to optimize your microbial terrain. The best option for Fibromyalgia is to use BODY BIOTICS.
Trigger 6 - Uncontrolled Blood Sugar Levels
Some of us are super efficient at converting food into energy, and need to eat low-starch meals - or we experience swings of hyper and hypo glycemia. Too excited followed by too sleepy and tired.
With Metabolic Typing, it is easy to know how to construct your meals that will keep you balanced. The ratios between proteins, fats and carbohydrates needs to be adjusted to match your genetics and your energy needs.
You can improve on it by adding a lot of fiber into your diet - that's found in fruits and vegetables.
Also remember to learn your Metabolic Typing (see Trigger 1) to make sure you’re eating according to what your body allows.
Trigger 7 - Lack of Sleep
When we sleep, we rebuild and repair.
When we stay stressed, we break down our tissues, and we age faster.
Once we understand which foods keep us awake, and which foods help us sleep, things get a bit easier as well. Knowing your metabolic typing will help with this as well.
The most common reason for not being able to sleep well is the calcium-magnesium imbalance. Take a bath or a foot soak before bed with magnesium crystals.
If you can’t sleep because you’re in too much pain, focus on the other 6 triggers to reduce your pain and improve your sleep. This is a classic chicken-before-the-egg concept so work on your sleep by eating right and balancing the calcium and magnesium in your body.
As the pain subsides, you’ll begin to have more pain-free sleeps as well.
Something to take note of...
It’s not easy for us to change our habits over night so don’t look at this as an overnight process!
Setup a weekly schedule that includes your exercise, meal plans, and rest. Don’t compromise your health for your laziness.
Make these changes a priority and remind yourself by answering the question - ‘Why am I doing this?’
The most difficult time is the beginning, and that’s because Fibromyalgia very rarely gives us any ‘quick wins’.
The pain we endure through the beginning of this routine is what causes most people to not follow through.
It’s difficult enough to deal with pain on its own, but switching to a new routine that forces us to be disciplined, well rested, and energetic at the same time is a very tall glass to order.
For this reason, it’s often recommended to take things like Fibro Ease, a natural pain relief supplement for Fibromyalgia, MSM a natural energy enhancer, and even CBD as a relaxant to relieve pain and provide deeper sleeps.
We put together some Fibromyalgia specific packages
which you may find helpful at:
We are often asked for our top recommendation for dealing with these difficult issues, and since everyone is unique, it can be a challence. However, everyone also has a lot in common. What is most common is the toxic environment and lack of nutrition in our foods. The packages you will find here are our best solutions to that problem.
Take the next couple of months to see if holistic methods can make a difference in your life. Imagine: No drug side-effects as bad as the illness. Imagine: Being able to do all the things you used to do... pain-free!
