Treating Fibromyalgia Pain - an Organized Approach: "Treating Fibromyalgia Pain — an Organized Approach
The FDA has recently (and for the first time) begun to approve medications for treating fibromyalgia pain. In the last year, the FDA has approved Lyrica, Cymbalta, and now Minalcipran. Although these medications can be helpful, and you will hear about them (each company will spend about $70 million per year advertising them), it is critical to remember that the key to pain relief is to use the 'SHINE Protocol' to eliminate the underlying causes of the pain. Pain is like the 'oil light on your dashboard' telling you that something urgently needs attention. By treating SHINE, you address:
Hormonal support (despite normal lab tests)
Nutritional support, and
Exercise as able
Most of you will find that when you treat 'SHINE' your pain will go away, or at least markedly decrease. In the interim, or even long term in cases where we can't get to the root cause of the pain, pain medications can offer a lot of relief.
I highly recommend that you read his "detailed article which will take you through a step-by-step process to help you get pain free. It will review how to treat the underlying causes of the pain and how to use natural remedies for pain. It will also review how to use over a dozen pain medications (and the order in which to try them) so you can get pain relief while going after root causes of the pain."
