Patients with fibromyalgia have difficulty tolerating regular doses of most medications and supplements. They are sensitive to medications, and adverse effects are common. About 50 percent of patients report sensitivities to noise, bright lights, odors, medications, and certain foods. To avoid these problems, use the lowest dose available or perhaps one half to one quarter of the lowest recommended dose. Hence, when taking new doses, begin by taking the least amount prescribed by your doctor.
But many of you out there read this blog because you dread the idea of being put on antibiotics or other pain medications due to innate intolerances that the medical community just can't seem to fathom. The only logical way is to become more preventative daily to ensure less flare ups by keeping your body at prime health. If you are a fibromyalgia patient and been sick, you know how magnified your symptoms can become when there is a virus or bacterial infection ravaging your body.
Keep symptoms at bay by following this daily regiment:
1. Be sure to take your probiotic supplement with a large glass of water each morning when waking.
2. Drink a glass of Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar shortly thereafter.
3. Have a wonderful salad of raw garlic for lunch.
4. Make your Fibromyalgia Smoothie before bed.
I write often on the reminders of the importance of preventative medicine. This is due to the simple fact, we can prevent 80% of our symptoms if we follow the correct course. But, life brings diverse joys and temptations that hinder our progress and we must be reminded intermittenly to regain correct course before a relapse occurs.
