Natural is the way to go! These Supplements and Herbs for Fibromyalgia can relieve your pain.
Why do I recommend supplements and herbs for fibromyalgia?
In 2009 I was diagnosed with a condition called Ulcerative Colitis.
Like fibromyalgia the causes are unknown.
Like symptoms of fibromyalgia, it can be painful.
There is no cure for colitis, there is no cure for fibromyalgia.
It shook me!
I was young, physically active, not a care in the world.
Stuff happens I guess.
Anyway I tell you this because I was instantly prescribed two medications.
One was Lialda the other was Mercaptopurine.
I tried the Lialda and it did help. When my Doctor told me that Mercaptopurine would lower my immune system, I had to draw the line.
I still remember coming home and just staring at the pill bottle.
I Never took one.
Instead I cleaned up!
1.Cleaned up my Exercise (more intense)
2.Cleaned up my Diet (meats,poultry,fish and vegatables)
3.Cleaned up my Attitude (make something good out of bad),
And I began taking Omega 3 fish oil.
I stopped taking the Lialda and have not looked back.
It's been close to a year now without any flare up's, thank GOD!
I still have both pill bottles in my medicine cabinet, not for an emergency but for Inspiration!
I have no problem with anyone taking prescription medicine, if it helps.
Personally I like the natural route, although you still need to do your homework and be cautious about anything you are ingesting.
Most women I have talked to don't like the feeling they get from their fibromyalgia medication. Some of them complain of feeling fatigued after taking them.
Symptoms of fibromyalgia, such as Trigger Points or Sleep Disorders are among the worst for sufferers.
I know that many of you have probably tried all you could in attempts to stop the pain and find some rest. Although there is no cure for fibromyalgia, there are supplements and herbs for fibromyalgia you can take.
These are just some fibromyalgia supplements to consider.
If you are currently taking prescribed medicine for fibromyalgia, continue. If you want some alternative medicine for fibromyalgia, here are a few natural supplements and natural herbs for fibromyalgia.

Water, Some signs you may not be getting enough of this precious mineral:
chronic pains in the joints and muscles, lower back pain, headaches and constipation. Sound Familiar.
How much do you need? I hate to be rude but just look. If your urine is yellow, you need more water. Your urine should exit you body clear. Another simple way to measure how much you need is to divide your body weight by 2.
Example: you weigh 140 ponds divided by 2 equals 70 ounces of water per day. There is no better way to clean out all of the nasty stuff we take into our bodies.
I have been taking melatonin for about a year now. My best client recommended it to me and it has really helped me to begin the sleep process at night.
Melatonin gained it's popularity as a sleep promoting agent, and that's exactly what it is.

Calcium is a mineral that will help your muscles contract.
Many fibromyalgia sufferers have been shown to have a deficiency in both Magnesium and Calcium.
Antioxidants have come to the forefront of fibromyalgia research. There has been a link found in fibromyalgia pain associated with Antioxidant damage.
One popular antioxidant is Tumeric. An Indian spice that has been proven as a antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. It's been shown to have positive effects on the immune system and may relieve other symptoms of fibromyalgia like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (I.B.S.) and Arthritis.
