I was diagnosed with Fibro around 10 years ago. For 9 years my life was filled with pain except for the odd glorious day here and there when I would somehow miraculously be pain free and it would remind me what it was to be 'normal' and be able to move about easily.
Anyhow, about a year ago I started working with a woman who is studying dietary problems with horses. She had written a great article (here it is ProvideIt Multi Vitamin & Minerals for Horses
) about how inflamation (and therefore pain) in the muscles of the horse is caused by high sugar grasses. I saw the difference in some of the horses we worked with when they were taken off clover or other high sugar grasses and was amazed at the difference in movement in particular.
Anyhow one day it hit me to try avoiding sugar myself.
I added magnesium and chromium to my diet. Within 6 weeks I was PAIN FREE. It is nearly a year later and I am (apart from having broken my fricken foot LOL) PAIN FREE!!!!
It has been the most amazing journey and so worth it. As a bonus I lost 17kg.
It may not work for everyone but it certainly worked for me and it's so worth trying. I have my life back and at 48 I am rearing to go
(Or will be once my foot heals)
Good luck with your journey and if you need advice on how to get over the sugar cravings or what to eat etc, I'm happy to help
