How to Treat Fibromyalgia - Healing Fibromyalgia with Aromatherapy
Many a times, people suffering with fibromyalgia give up hope of getting their normal life back. They give into the belief that this is an incurable disease and there is no hope for them. This is not true. Fibromyalgia treatment has come a long way in recent years. Today there is a vast amount of knowledge available to help fibromyalgia patients heal their symptoms and get back to a regular life.
Some studies done recently indicate that fibromyalgia may not be an auto-immune disease. It may instead be caused by some pathogens which attach themselves to our cells and stay inside them making it difficult to test for them.
Many of the oils used in aromatherapy have molecules small enough to pass the blood-brain barrier and directly influence the brain positively. This helps in reducing problems like depression and mood swings. It also helps enhance the quality and duration of sleep and improves concentration. These essential oils also boost the body's immune system and help it to fight the pathogens which may be causing the different symptoms of fibromyalgia.
Many fibromyalgia patients have found relief from their symptoms through aromatherapy. The essential oils used during aromatherapy are effective at reducing the pain symptoms quickly. Unlike using painkillers, this method does not have any side effects or danger of addiction.
Sometimes people with fibromyalgia may experience a slight increase in their symptoms before they experience relief. This is because the oils are detoxifying the body and removing the harmful chemicals which may have collected over time. But this is only a temporary effect and soon after these symptoms die down and the person experience much relief from their fibromyalgia symptoms.
These natural oils also have antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial properties which help to destroy a wide variety of pathogens without causing any harm to the body. These oils also help to boost your energy level and increase your metabolism. They increase your blood circulation and help to reduce inflammation that may be present in various body parts. Some of the essential oils which are effective in treating FMS and CFS are lavender, eucalyptus and frankincense.
