Fibromyalgia Introduction Series by Lotus Spring Acupuncture & Wellness Inc.

Think of a traffic jam. In some areas you have too many cars; in other areas, there aren’t enough. Now replace the cars with a gas that can either help restore homeostasis to the body or cause nerves to disintegrate and you begin to understand the importance of them being distributed safely. This tends to manifest in ways based on the fight or flight mechanism. With fibromyalgia type three, you either experience pain in the shoulders, which is the flight response. Where are you aren’t allowed to punch or claw, which is your natural response; so as it’s built up and not used, it creates long-term tension that builds in the shoulders. The other experience that you could be having is a pain in the lower back, which is the flight response. Energy surges to the legs, but you have nowhere to run. The tension builds in the lower back.

With increased oxidation, the liver loses efficiency in cannibalizing cortisol, so these stress hormones will build up in the body through the bloodstream causing a repeat of Traumatic feelings. Initially, they have trouble getting to sleep, but as the oxidative damage begins to destroy the liver, kidneys, and nervous system, they will begin waking up one to 3 o’clock in the morning. An increase in vivid dreams and in severe cases, nightmares may take effect. To release some of the build-up nitric oxides, the body will tend to cause people to site in order to self-regulate. With high stress and do you regulate nitric oxide, the body suffers nerve pain. It’s common to feel pain behind the eyes from a combination of intraocular pressure and oxidative disintegration of the optic nerve. This type of fibromyalgia is associated with dysregulation of melatonin. Melatonin has direct actions on pain signaling.

In order to treat this, we need to reduce stress and improve sleep through reduced nitric oxide, sighing, and work to move the tension out of the body. It is also important to address long-term liver damage. We use herbs to regulate the nitric oxide, to reduce stress, regulate melatonin, and improve your sleep. We also address liver cirrhosis and regulate got inflammation to reduce irritable bowel disorder.

These interventions have been shown to have a regulatory effect on hormones. Some of the key signs and symptoms, from fibromyalgia type three, that you may be experiencing can include; pain which is improved by moving, often associated with an irritable bowel disorder, pain which is worse than with sitting and with stress and poor sleep, most common causes of fibromyalgia, and accompanied with sleep deprivation and insomnia.
