Hi Everyone,

I'm back from my trip to CA where I spent two days with a couple that runs a therapy spa. Both of them have fibro. The wife is also being treated for Lyme's. They are doing it holistically. The guy says he has been in total remission since 2000. He told me for him, it was food allergies. He had some very specific testing done and the culprits were sugar, wheat, dairy (the usual suspects). He has not eaten these products since 2000 and says he feels great. Of course, he has a home fitness center, lap pool and jacuzzi, which I'm sure helps, too.

This concurs with what my dr. believes, also - primarily that candida runs amok in fibro sufferers and needs to be dealt with. He uses candida injections, like allergy injections. I started the treatment almost two years ago, obviously felt better and quit. Need to go again and really give it a try, now.

Interesting.

Don't shoot the messenger!

That is interesting Bella. I met a woman at the pain management center who came in a wheelchair 8 months ago and is now walking. she attributes it to inflammation free diet and an hour of exercise a day. I don't know what she has because the pain clinic treats people with all diff kinds of pain.

Interesting you should mention Candida. I've had that problem for some time. Was thinking about it today myself and then came on and found your post. thanks

Maybe some of us who are willing should try a group experiment, cutting these foods and see if we improve. It's so hard, though. I start out with the best intentions and cave quickly.

Oh, also, there was a yoga instructor there. I was not going to participate because the few times I have tried yoga, I hurt more. But I told her what issues I had, she modified accordingly and I really enjoyed it. It was an hour long class and I did not hurt from doing it. I was really surprised!

In my case, fibro was brought on by a car accident. I wonder if the people you mentioned did not really have fibro but food allergies. I guess anything is possible with fibro.

Mine was also brought on by a car accident, but it seems to be affected now by stress (mainly), diet and exercise.

Hi,
Going on a strict candida diet was the beginning of relief for me. I now stick to a less strict version now. That and liver cleansing - herbs that help the liver detoxify - have helped me immensely.

Food allergies or sensitivities seem to factor in for me too. Hardly ever eat anything with sugar, dairy, wheat myself and it makes a world of difference.

Any kind of trauma - accident, prolonged stress, physical overexertion etc. can weaken the body and certain organs. From talking to the people I have, it seems some people bounce back, but others don't do so too well, and fibro. springs up. Chinese medicine will address some of this by detoxification of these organs and then strengthening them with herbs.

Many people do recover, at least to a great extent, by addressing fibro. issues naturally. I've heard a few success stories myself.

Candida is usually caused by an underlying root cause. If you treat it and after a few months you stop the diet etc. and it comes back, my personal opinion is there is probably an underlying cause - coudl be many thigns: hormone imbalance, liver congestion, underfucntioning thyroid etc. At leat that is what I've been told. And it made sense to me. :0)

Take care everyone, manyembers
