7 ways to cure your fibromyalgia

I once came across these ‘ways’ or ‘tips’ on how to cure your fibromyalgia, from a blog called ‘Chronic Mom’.

Read and consume at your own peril.

1) Drink all the shakes. Take all the pills. Drink milk from a Himalayan mountain goat by the light of the full moon

2) Just use a positive attitude

3) Just use more faith

4) Just try harder

5) Just exercise more

6) Eat healthy food

7) Listen to your doctor

Obviously, these are sarcastic comments and tips. Anyone with the slightest knowledge of chronic pain disorders knows that you cannot ‘think yourself’ out of pain. It’s just not possible. In fact, I’d say it’s quite irresponsible. Because, there is a time and a place for everything, and the time to be happy and positive is not when you’re lying down on the ground, feeling like you’re being impaled by 10,000 red hot glowing nails the size of crowbars.

Tell that to any happiness guru out there.

They really don’t have the slightest clue what they’re talking about.

However, the whole list illustrates and important, yet negative point.

And it is explained by the list’s very own existence. If the world of fibromyalgia wasn’t rife with poor advice, any such sarcastic list wouldn’t have existed in the first place. Why make a joke list about something that doesn’t exist in the first place?

Right?

So, that means that there actually are lots of people out there who hand out such stupid advice and even charge for it.

Especially a lot of people who adhere to the profession being describe in point number seven.

Yes, I’m talking about all the hopeless doctors and so-called medical professionals who give bad advice. Note that I myself *am not* a medical professional, so I cannot possibly recommend for or against anything.

What I can do, however, is let you know of the literal hundreds if not thousands of cases I’ve heard about patients who have gotten advice from their doctors that didn’t help them at all.

That and even prescriptions for drugs that didn’t help the slightest.

Actually, that’s not true.

The drugs helped with one thing.

Trimming down the weight of the patients’ wallets without removing their pain.

Which is obviously not what you want.

Look, at the end of the day, fibromyalgia is a very complicated matter, and it can have multiple causes. There is no sole explanation for why some develop fibromyalgia and some don’t. However, there certainly are loads of poor advice being handed out left and right when it comes to suggested treatment methods for fibromyalgia.

Yet, I want to just give you my advice.

And that is, instead of having to psychologically and mentally prepare you to fight for your prescription so that you can get the painkiller drug you so badly want, what about going a different route?

By taking something that doesn’t require a prescription.

That doesn’t make you addicted or have any known side effects.

And that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg?

If this sounds interesting to you, I’ll just name drop the thing right here and I’ll leave the rest up to you.

Sound fair?

Alright.

It’s called CBD oil.

And that’s all you need to know.
