An Effective, Holistic Approach to Overcoming Fibromyalgia

For those suffering from fibromyalgia, an elusive chronic pain condition, pain, fatigue and sleeplessness are part of everyday life. Adding to the frustration, the exact root and cure for fibromyalgia continues to elude the medical community. Fortunately, many patients are discovering that recovery from fibromyalgia is possible with a natural, holistic approach to overall health.

More commonly diagnosed in women than men, fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition that affects the upper and lower, left and right parts of the body. In addition to varying levels of pain in certain “tender points” throughout the body, patients often experience a wide range of symptoms, from anxiety and depression to sleeplessness. Research has shown that physical, emotional and environmental stressors can impact the severity of these troublesome symptoms.

For fibromyalgia sufferers, the questions regarding treatment far outweigh any definitive answers. Medications now prescribed by the traditional medical community have received mixed reviews and often present undesirable side effects. In my experience, I’ve found that those suffering from fibromyalgia can make tremendous strides in getting to the source of their pain and discomfort through a natural, holistic healing approach.

At Sheehan Chiropractic, our natural healing approach begins with an evaluation of your body type. We use HRV and applied kinesiology to uncover weaknesses and imbalances to determine where the nervous system is being disturbed. Based on this insight, we can design a holistic healing approach customized to work for your unique body type for better results. Your plan may include a customized diet, detoxification, acupressure, natural supplements or chiropractic adjustments. Time and time again, we see clients with fibromyalgia go from a life of pain and fatigue to a life of renewed energy and relief when they follow our natural approach to healing.

If you suffer from fibromyalgia, don’t wait another day to call us. Let today be the day you find a more effective, natural way to overcome your pain and get back to living life to its fullest.
