The Natural Fibromyalgia Treatment that will Curb Your Symptoms

Living with fibromyalgia isn’t always easy. The pain and fatigue associated with it can be severely limiting, leaving sufferers unable to handle important tasks and day-to-day activities.

While there is no clearly defined cause for this syndrome, there are some treatment options available that can help manage it. Often, doctors will prescribe a combination of pain medications and antidepressants or sleeping pills to treat some of the most limiting symptoms. Still, these treatments are not cures. Once the medication wears off, the pain, fatigue and other symptoms of fibromyalgia return. Because of this, medication often becomes a permanent fixture in a patient’s life.

If you’re living with fibromyalgia and looking for a drug-free way to curb your symptoms, neurofeedback could be the natural fibromyalgia treatment you’re looking for.

What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a syndrome affecting the muscles and soft tissue. The cause of the syndrome is unknown, but experts believe it’s related to a variety of factors, such as traumatic, stressful, emotional events, central nervous system problems, repetitive injuries, rheumatoid arthritis, insomnia, leaky gut, and more.

With its wide-ranging list of symptoms, fibromyalgia is often confused with other conditions, which can make diagnosis difficult. Many sufferer’s describe the condition as flu-like, with symptoms ranging from mildly annoying to severely limiting. The most common symptoms include chronic pain, fatigue, weakness and sleep disturbances, but symptoms can also take many other forms.

Other symptoms of fibromyalgia include:

  • Painful tender points
  • Irregular sleep patterns
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Stiffness
  • Concentration and memory problems
  • Weight gain
  • Vision problems
  • Painful menstrual cramps
  • Nausea and dizziness
  • Irritable bowel syndrome, and more.

Alleviating fibromyalgia symptoms

While there is no known cure for fibromyalgia, there are treatments that can keep the symptoms at bay. Conventional treatments rely on painkillers, antidepressants and sleeping pills to manage the pain, sleeping problems, anxiety and depression associated with the condition. But once the prescriptions wear off, fibromyalgia symptoms return.

There are also natural, drugless treatments that fibromyalgia sufferers can turn as an alternative to medication. In addition to leading a healthy lifestyle through exercise and diet, engaging in Brain Core therapy has offered relief to many fibromyalgia sufferers. This therapy, also known as neurofeedback training can alleviate and improve many of the symptoms commonly associated with fibromyalgia.

This painless, drug-free therapy helps fibromyalgia sufferers by regulating their brain waves. In doing so, they’re able to change the way their brain interprets the nerve impulses and pain sensitivity related to fibromyalgia. It also helps them sleep easier, and deeper so their bodies can heal and recuperate. After just 10 to 20 sessions, the brain’s behavior patterns and pain sensitivity can return to normal levels, allowing the fibromyalgia patient to experience relief and even total elimination of the symptoms associated with fibromyalgia.

Patients often notice a decrease in pain, feel more well rested, have fewer problems sleeping, and have less anxiety.
