According to the American College of Rheumatology, Fibromyalgia is the second most common rheumatic disorder in United States. The common symptoms are pain, stiffness, aches and muscle tenderness. Also fatigue and sleep disorders.
There are 18 specific points in the body for Fibromyalgia, when a person has tenderness in 11 of them, he is diagnosed with this disease. It is amazing how these western medicine approach closely correspond to the location of acupuncture points. There are many drug to help relieve the pain, however there is no cure for Fibromyalgia in Western Medicine.
In Chinese Medicine, we see the body as a whole. The main organ related to this disease is the Spleen, which rule the muscles. A very well know diagnosis is Spleen Qi and blood deficiency. This organ is in charge to supply the body with blood and QI, any deficiency will cause a lot of problems in our system. A combination of acupuncture points and herbs will help to restore the balance. Also sliding cupping will have an immediate effect to relieve pain.
In Acupuncture and Holistic Center, we have a holistic medicine approach, so in patients with this condition, I use the Bach Flower of OLIVE. This flower is recommend for people with great physical, mental and emotional exhaustion.
Fibromyalgia is considered an auto immune disease, this is why I work also with the first Chakra which governs our immune system.
Louise Hay says the muscles are related to resistance to new experiences. Your new thought should be "My life is a continuous learning experience. I am open to new experiences"
It is time to be healthy
