Fibromyalgia is also known as the “sore all over” sickness as it causes chronic aches and pains throughout the body. It is most common in women in their late 30’s and 40’s.
Many doctors believe Fibromyalgia is a form of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and it is often difficult to treat. Methyl sulfonyl methane or MSM is now helping patients find relief from their symptoms offering hope to many who have been living with the condition for years.
Doctors will diagnose fibromyalgia in patients who present with the following symptoms:
One of the most difficult tasks for patients with fibromyalgia can sometimes prove to be finding a doctor willing to diagnose their illness. Because fibromyalgia was regarded as a psychological issue, many doctors disregarded it as an illness requiring medical attention. Further studies, however, have made it more widely accepted as a valid medical condition.
MSM and Fibromyalgia
Methyl sulfonyl methane or MSM is being used in the treatment of fibromyalgia as a natural organic form of sulphur. Sulphur has few side effects and is naturally occurring in skin, bones and muscles. It also plays a key role in the production of collagen. It is thought by many to be more effective when taken with Vitamin C.
Many doctors believe MSM is effective in combating symptoms of fibromyalgia, as in large doses MSM works to enhance the transport of oxygen from the lungs to various parts of the body.
With an increase in oxygen, muscle cells are better able to revert from an unhealthy anaerobic metabolism to a healthy aerobic metabolism enhancing cellular and body energy. It also stops the production of the waste product, lactic acid. With fewer toxins in the body, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia can be resolved.
Pain Reduction and Possible Elimination
According to Dr Stanley Jacob co-author of ‘The Miracle of MSM: The Natural Solution for Pain’, MSM is oxidised DMSO. Dr Jacob found that large doses of MSM were very effective in reducing fibromyalgia pain and for some patients it was completely eliminated. There were also excellent results for reducing chronic fatigue. Successful doses varied between five, ten and 30 grams per day. The patients worked in finding the dose that was the most effective for their own personal needs.
