What causes fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome? Believe it or not, you’re asking the wrong question. The cause can be different for everyone. The better question is, “Why is my body not healing and repairing properly.”
Your muscles, joints and soft tissues break down a little bit every day just from doing normal daily activities and work. During sleep and rest, your body should repair the damage and restore your energy. But if your body is not healthy enough, damage to your muscles, joints and soft tissues will accumulate and progressively worsen leading to chronic fatigue and fibroymalgia… unless you find out why your body is not repairing like it should.
Your Science Based Nutrition professional understands that fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue are multi-faceted syndromes. A comprehensive analysis is essential to determine what conditions could be contributing factors. Viral infections, low immunity, food allergies, medications, depression, hormone imbalances, toxic elements, vitamin and mineral deficiencies and neurological and structural imbalances can all cause fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue symptoms.
The only way to determine exactly what deficiencies, toxicities or dysfunctions are contributing to YOUR symptoms is through a comprehensive health analysis including blood testing, tissue mineral hair analysis and other diagnostic testing.
Through careful examination and analysis, your Science Based Nutrition Healthcare professional can help assist you with the lifestyle changes, diet or nutrients needed for your body to heal itself and restore your health, as well as continue to monitor your progress.
Be aware that Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia have often taken years to develop and at times, it can be a long, slow progress to recovery. But consistent improvement, even if slow, will lead you back to good, vibrant health.
