At our center we use complementary and naturopathic medicines to treat fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is caused by an imbalance in the nervous system innervating the muscles. Research shows that patients with fibromyalgia have deficiencies in the neurotransmitters which promote relaxation of the muscles and excessive amounts in the excitatory substances that cause muscle tension. These imbalances creates the trigger points and the excess contraction and less relaxation causes the pain and achiness. Restoring healthy balances of neurotransmitters with nutritional supplements and dietary changes helps get to the underlying cause of fibromyalgia and helps relieve symptoms.
