Living with Fibromyalgia: Kinesiology can Help

by sguthrie on 10 October, 2017

Fibromyalgia, also called fibromyalgia syndrome, is a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body.

The name fibromyalgia comes from three Latin words:

  • ‘fibro’ meaning fibrous tissues, such as tendons (tissue that connects muscles to bones) and ligaments (tissue that connects bones to bones)
  • ‘my’ meaning muscles
  • ‘algia’ meaning pain

Earlier this month, Lady Gaga announced the cancellation of the upcoming leg of her world tour due to her ongoing battle with fibromyalgia syndrome alot of people had never heard of Fibromyalgia until them and wonder exactly what was Fibromyalgia.

How common is fibromyalgia?

The number of people who suffer from fibromyalgia in Ireland is not known but approximately 14 million people in the EU have the syndrome and 1-3% of the global population. In most cases, fibromyalgia occurs between 30 and 60 years of age, but it can develop in people of any age, including children and the elderly.

Fibromyalgia can be a difficult condition to diagnose because there is no specific test and the symptoms can be similar to those of other conditions.

Many people with fibromyalgia syndrome may have:

Pain and tender points
Fatigue
Sleep problems
Concentration and memory problems, known as “fibro fog”
Anxiety or depression
Morning stiffness
Numbness, and tingling in hands, arms, feet, and legs
Headaches
Irritable bowel syndrome
Problems with peeing
Painful menstrual cramps
Pain and Tender Points

Almost all people with fibromyalgia ache all over. It can feel similar to osteoarthritis, bursitis, and tendinitis, but it’s over your entire body. This is usually what makes you go see your doctor.

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition which can be treated multi dimensionally. There is a clear physical component and chemical component that Kinesiology can address, the first line of defence is to decrease pain then to address the cause, and Applied Kinesiology can pinpoint exactly what nutrients and herbs will be effective for you. Lastly fibromyalgia is almost an emotional component. Kinesiology can identify the stress and where it is coming from in your life.

Roberta joined our course last year and just recently spoke publicly about her struggles with Fibromyalgia and how Kinesiology has helped her come off her medication. Hear her powerful story here.

You can make an appointment with Roberta or connect through her facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/rbholistictherapies/

Wellness is vital in fibromyalgia, and Kinesiology can give you tools to be willing to take care of your mind and body with education. Because when you are willing – anything is possible!

Get your kids off milk now !

by sguthrie on 9 October, 2017

The milk industry has been working hard for decades to convince us that it’s absolutely essential for everyone to drink milk.
Milk supporters – and the milk industry – tend to focus their marketing on bone health and the prevention of osteoporosis to sell their cupfuls. And while intuition may tell you that the consumption of calcium must, in turn, do a body good, the medical literature isn’t so sure

Conventional cows milk is a food that can cause leaky gut. The component of dairy that will harm your gut is the protein A1 casein. Also, the pasteurization process will destroy vital enzymes, making sugars like lactose very difficult to digest.

The mechanism behind dairy causing the damage it does lies in several areas:

1. It stops the formation of glucosamine in the gut lining, thereby creating a leaky gut. (Glucosamine is known to help repair the mucosal-lining defensive barrier in our small intestine.)
2. It impairs immune system development in the gut and the maturation of important immune cells known as T helper cells – this can lead to autoimmune disease, asthma, allergies.
3. The milk from other mammals is too high in protein and phosphorus and the protein damages the gut lining.
4. Dairy products are highly chemically laden, the highest per gram of all food, and are thereby toxic to the gut lining.
5. Dairy creates a mucous “slime” in the lining of the gut that prevents the absorption of some nutrients as well as causing gut inflammation. – (http://glutendoctors.blogspot.ie)

Hear from Brian who joined us for a recent workshop he believes ” we should not be drinking milk”

Brian’s take on milk is rather straightforward. Milk does not appear to the magic food whose consumption leads to strong bones or everlasting life. It is also not the dietary problem that’s poisoning the nation. And although a source of calcium there are many alternative sources of calcium and that, if bone strength and general health is your concern.

 

Hear more from Brian Miller – http://betterbodymanagement.co.uk/about/

 

If you feel your health is suffering from eating dairy prodcuts a visit to a Kinesiologist can determine if you are lactose intolerant.  Using muscle-testing, we can find out whether a particular food is stressful for a person by placing the item on their body and pressing on a muscle We can also test to see if it is an allergy or an intolerance and see how it might be affecting the person emotionally as well as physically. (In some cases, a particular food can switch a person into sabotaging themselves – in other words, when they eat it, they tend to make unhealthy choices in life. A good example would be dairy.)
