Fibromyalgia Treatment – Medications or Diet Changes?

Fibromyalgia is characterized by wide spread pain, identifiable by tender trigger points, and by its associated chronic fatigue. There ofter are other symptoms, such as brain fog, yeast infections, headaches, back pain, and other inflammatory conditions that include elimination or sleep problems and hormonal disturbances.

Even though the main stream doctors used to call it an illness of the musculoskeletal system, they recently reclassified it as a central nervous system problem, and started prescribing a drug originally developed to treat seizures (Lyrica). That is still treating the symptoms, not dealing with the cause.

Here is the official position from Mayo Clinic:

Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.

Symptoms sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event.

Women are much more likely to develop fibromyalgia than are men. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression.

While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, a variety of medications can help control symptoms. Exercise, relaxation and stress-reduction measures also may help.

They do not spend much time on finding the actual cause or causes of this syndrome, because that does not fit their perspective – the need for “one illness = one cause.”

We see the causes from our “Four Pillars of Health” perspective – elimination of toxicity, malnutrition, stagnation and vibrational disturbance.

This week we are doing a Google Hangout on this topic, and you are invited.

Join us online on Thursday, April 24 2014, at 5 pm Pacific, or 8 pm Eastern.

Ask your questions, get your answers to whether your Fibromyalgia Treatment should include Medications or Diet Changes, and which ones.


How Zeolite Works to Detox Heavy Metals

If you been eating fish from the oceans, breathing air down-wind from coal-fired power plants, or if you have been vaccinated, or have amalgam fillings in your mouth, you should be concerned about mercury toxicity.

If you are eating food that has been grown on fields that get rained on from clouds polluted by smog from China or radioactive fallout from Japan, you should be concerned.

If you played with lead paint-covered toys, or touched walls and porches, you need to act. Cadmium from cigarette smoke is an issue, and our polluted food supply is not magically cleaning itself up either.

The commonly used tools to deal with heavy metal toxicity include  EDTA, Chlorella, Cilantro, and clays, including Bentonite. EDTA needs to be supplied by an intravenous (IV) drop or rectally as suppositories. These methods dislodge the sequestered (sent to some hiding places) toxins, and depending on the intensity of your program can cause unwanted and unwelcome side effects that include dizziness, headaches, sensory distortions, sense of unreality, and a multitude of neurological complications.

There are several types of zeolite, varying in composition and structure. The most effective for removing heavy metals from the human body is Clinoptilolite. Zeolite removes heavy metals by binding the toxic molecules in a physical or mechanical way, not chemically as happens with chelation. Heavy metals are pulled into the cage-like structure and are excreted through your regular elimination pathways.

Zeolite can be synergistically supported by humic and fulvic acid, to help remove the industrial toxins out of your body. Please let me know what you think of the video explaining How Zeolite Works to Detox Heavy Metals.


Is it safe to eat the fish from polluted oceans?

That depends … I decided to investigate. Recently we have been told that 300 tons of radioactive water is leaking into the Pacific Ocean from the broken reactors at Fukushima. But that is not much – that’s like a little boy peeing into a lake – the toxic effect from it may not show up on my kitchen table for years.

And yet, we are getting reports about fish from the Pacific Ocean with increased background radiation level.

I am more concerned about the years of mercury fallout from coal burning power plants in China. By burning coal we are pushing thousands of tons of mercury into the air every year. It has to come down somewhere. Why not right into the oceans?

But that’s not all – we hear about chemtrails. The mainstream is very quiet about this topic, but if you search online, you will soon see a lot of unsettling information about cattle getting sick from polluted pastures, and people coming down with mysterious health problems.

Let us not forget rivers, flushing downstream all the chlorine from municipal water treatment and toilet bowl cleaners, and the petrochemicals washed down from the streets into storm sewers, and down stream into creeks and rivers, and all the pharmaceutical drugs that are dumped into the toilets, either directly or in the urine.

Recently I talked to a client who was dramatically poisoned by radioactive fallout from fighting a forest fire in New Mexico. Apparently, when you burn vegetation that has absorbed radioactive fallout from nuclear testing done in the Cold War times, it goes back up into the air, and can be inhaled with very dire consequences.

Which reminded me of all the depleted uranium munitions used in Iraq and Afghanistan. Uranium is a very heavy element, heavier than lead, and really good at penetrating armor. You may remember hearing about enriched uranium – that is used as fuel in nuclear power plants. The left-over is the depleted uranium, less rich, but still radioactive. When the bullet hits something solid, it can evaporate, at least partially, and put some of the most difficult to treat heavy metal poisoning into everyone nearby.

You probably have read enough of the doom and fear messages. Let me share something hopeful: I have been using zeolite, I take some several times every day, because it does not stay in the body very long; it is excreted within hours. Whenever it encounters electro-positive elements, especially the heavy metals, it binds them in its electro-negative lattice, and helps me excrete them.

I am enjoying the ocean fish, with the belief that my zeolite insurance policy will deliver the protection I need. The testing we have done using ICP-MS (mass-spec) analysis on the urine suggests that it is working very well.

Check out the zeolite products – they are available as liquid, capsules, and open powder.
