Great is a great blessing of God Almighty. It would not be wrong to say that in all the blessings of the universe, health is most important. An unhealthy and sick person cannot enjoy the beauty of life. Good health is the central theme of a happy life. It is good health and spirits which contribute to the prosperity and well –beings of society as well. A healthy society and its healthy population significantly contribute more to wealth and economic progress. Healthy populations in any society are more productive and have longer life spans. So on realistic grounds, it is not the wealth but health that makes a society wealthy.
You must be wondering, what was that lecture for? Well, the bright picture which we just painted turns into a miserable grey sketch in the absence of good health. Among the many terrible diseases which can gnaw at a person’s health and spirits, there are only a few as terrible as fibromyalgia, the central topic of this discussion.
Fibromyalgia is a muscle’s related disease. It is a disease that affects the muscles and soft tissues particularly. Its second name is the widespread pain disease. In this disease, pain is felt from head to toe. Some of its symptoms are:
FATIGUE AND WEAKNESS
A very common symptom of this disease. All the time a feeling of extreme weakness is there.
WIDESPREAD MUSCLES AND JOINTS PAIN
As it is the disease of muscles and bones so a widespread pain is felt in the bones and joints. Sometimes it seems that you are going through arthritis but it is not like that.
Another major symptom is restlessness which is quite obvious since when you are going through the pains mentally and physically, you are bound to be a little upset.
NERVOUSNESS AND LACK OF SELF CONTROL
A patient of this disease is dominantly nervous and less concentrated on things and loses his control quite suddenly. The ability to react normally in sudden situations is completely lost. He is emotionally disturbed all his normal or expected responses to a situation are exaggerated.
LACK OF SLEEP: A person going through this disorder usually has a major upset in the sleep cycle. He or she lacks the proper sleep. Insomnia can haunt a fibro patient bad alright!
Now let’s move to the steps which could be fruitful in the treatment of fibromyalgia. This is our main point of discussion as well as what are the best things to do for Fibromyalgia.
The human body functions just like a machine and the proper functioning of the machine requires not only its proper look after but maintenance as well. This can only be achieved well by adopting a healthy lifestyle. A style of life which could be proved good in all its aspects for good health. This means an overall good atmosphere where the human body could grow at its best. The importance of a healthy lifestyle becomes more when a person is going through fibromyalgia. By adopting a good lifestyle one can easily overcome the worst symptoms of this disease. So living a healthy life matters!
EXERCISE AND PARTICIPATION IN WEIGHT LOSS ACTIVITIES
Fibromyalgia is a disease related to the muscles and bones of the human body. To curb some of the disease burdens, exercising daily can help a lot. The patients must spare some time for the exercise and participate in such activities which are helpful in weight loss. A controlled weight would add support to your bones and muscles. Exercise also improves fibromyalgia pain. The more you are motivated, the more you are fit and active.
EXPOSURE TO NATURAL ENVIRONMENT
As by birth humans are naturalists. What do we mean by that? They are born in nature, they’re brought up based on the patterns of nature and above all, their mental peace is dictated by nature as well. When we talk about fibromyalgia, some of its symptoms can easily be eradicated by exposure to nature, for example, restlessness. The closer you are to nature, the more you are relaxed. So fibromyalgia patients, feel free to eat natural and live natural as it would be superb for you.
HEALTHY AND BALANCED DIET
Just like a machine-human body also needs fuel and energy to work and in case the machine is out of order the quality of fuel and energy is more important. If the patients with fibromyalgia take a healthy and balanced diet, the risks associated with this disease can be reduced by a great margin. Patients are required to have such diet items which have all those nutrients that are necessary to fight the disease or its symptoms. In this regard, nutritious diet items having energy plus vitamins and minerals would be very effective. Organic food items like taking more and more vegetables, nuts, and fruits would be good because they have anti-inflammatory properties.
PROPER AND ACCURATE INTAKE OF VITAMINS AND SUPPLEMENTS
When talking about the intake of multivitamins and supplements, taking a good amount of Vitamin D seems like a good idea as well. These vitamins and minerals are very helpful in bone capacity building and in increasing their ability to bear the pain. Their required amount can best be attained by the use of such items which have their abundant amount like turmeric, milk, yogurt, orange juice, corn oil, etc.
STAYING IN A PROPER SHELTER
Along with lifestyle, place of living is also very important for fibromyalgia patients. After they are diagnosed with this disease, they need to have a check at their place. Is it airy and sunny? If not, then first of all they need to have a place where they could have direct exposure to fresh air and sunlight. Sunlight is a very important source of vitamin D as well. So shape your dimensions with vitamin D!
PARTICIPATION IN STRESS MANAGEMENT ACTIVITIES
To fight fibromyalgia, patients need to involve themselves in activities that are good for reducing their stress. This would aid them in fighting with their pains and building up their capacity as well.
