Salynn Boyles, WebMD Health News, reported today that a new research analysis shows certain antidepressants, like Cymbalta from Eli Lilly, can be effective treatments for fibromyalgia, but it is not clear if they are good choices for long-term use.

To this day fibromyalgia remains a poorly understood and hard-to-treat disorder (ONLY by traditional allopathic physicians – MD’s), characterized by widespread pain with no clear cause. Other commonly reported symptoms include fatigue, sleep problems, and depressed mood.

After nineteen years of dealing with hundreds of Fibromyalgia (FM) clients I can state with confidence that, FM is not a disease, period. Fibromyalgia does not a have an “etiological agent” that causes it (bacteria, virus, yeast, fungus, or parasite). FM is a set of symptoms only, caused by nutritional deficiency(s), endocrine imbalance(s) (caused by a nutritional deficiency(s), or in some cases an allergy(s).

The most common cause of FM, in my opinion, is magnesium deficiency. Magnesium deficiency is compounded by the client’s vitamin D deficiency, which is almost always present. Most FM clients will have poorer than average diets and tend not to have ever engaged in much physical activity (sports or the gym) When coached properly, health returns.

Reversing FM is not a mystery to those in the know, which excludes the pharmaceutical industry, the AMA, most MD’s, and the insurance industry. The truth is out there, you just need to pull your head out of the sand.
