Fibromyalgia is a painful condition. Studies have shown that juicing and a good diet can help reduce the pain significantly. People with Fibromyalgia might want to consider a juice detox to elimate any toxins that may have built up in thier system. Avoiding all processed foods and eating a clean diet has shown to help many.
Because I have close family members affected by this condition, I strongly believe that it is caused by a build up of toxins within the body that cannot be elimiated properly. I think that these toxins remain in the cells and muscles and cause pain.
A proper well balanced diet with nothing artifical greatly turns this condition around. If you are willing and able, a cleanse followed by a raw food diet would give you great improvement. It might be a struggle at first, but in time you might be surprised. Try it!
Juicing will help feed and clean your cells which will in turn help your body to function properly. Try to juice at least once every day, and slowly add a few greens to your juice.
Tip: Rubbing the tincture of Arnica topically on the body can reduce muscular pain. My mother has fibromyalgia and finds great relief from using arnica daily. Tropicaltraditions.com sells an awesome Arnica based lotion, that is also helpful.
