By addressing the multiple factors that contribute to fibromyalgia, the integrative approach aims to provide long-term relief and improve overall quality of life for those living with this challenging condition.

Fibromyalgia is a complex chronic pain condition that affects millions of people worldwide, predominantly women. This disorder is characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances, memory issues, and mood imbalances. While the exact cause of fibromyalgia remains unknown, it is believed to involve a combination of genetic, environmental, and psychological factors that contribute to abnormal pain processing in the central nervous system.

Root Causes

The exact cause of fibromyalgia is not fully understood, but research suggests that several factors may contribute to the development of this condition:

Signs & Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

The conventional approach to treating fibromyalgia often focuses on managing symptoms through medication, such as pain relievers, antidepressants, and anti-seizure drugs. While these medications can provide relief, they may also cause side effects and do not address the underlying causes of the condition.

In contrast, the integrative medicine approach to fibromyalgia aims to address the root causes of the disorder and provide comprehensive, personalized care. This approach incorporates a combination of conventional and alternative therapies, tailored to each patient's unique needs and health history. 

By addressing the multiple factors that contribute to fibromyalgia, the integrative approach aims to provide long-term relief and improve overall quality of life for those living with this challenging condition.

Key aspects of the integrative approach include:

  • Personalized treatment plans
  • Combination of conventional and functional therapies (physical therapy, acupuncture, massage, CBT)
  • Emphasis on nutrition with anti-inflammatory diets such as low FODMAP or plant-based style eating patterns.
  • Supplements to promote healing, such as magnesium, CoQ10, 5-HTP, and omega-3s. 
  • Lifestyle strategies to support mitochondria health such as exercise and stress management
