The remaining of the diet can consist Of high quality
proteins and whole grains. Sugar, refined carbohydrates, processed vegetable oils, shortening, margarine and processed
packaged foods should be avoided. In addition, FMS suffers
usually benefit from some specific supplements, including
(in order of importance) magnesium, iodine, omega-3 essential fatty acids and antioxidants.
Fibralgia is a supplement containing magnesium with malic acid. It aids in the production of ATP in the muscles and helps reduce muscle pain and stiffness. It also helps reduce fatigue in people suffering from FMS.
Iodine is an essential nutrient for the thyroid gland and
many FMS sufferers also have a dysfunctional thyroid. Dr.
David Brownstein, author of Iodine: Why You Need It,
Why You Can't Live Without It, claims that iodine supplements alone have cured fibromyalgia. This helps explain why
several natural healers independently discovered that black
walnut ATC was helpful for FMS. Black walnut, especially ATC
concentrated Black Walnut, is a good source Of natural iodine. It is also antimicrobial and antiparasitic and mildly detoxifying. Liquid Dulse is another good iodine supplement.
Omega-3 essential fatty acids are essential for the health
of nerve fibers and aid in the production of chemical messengers resulting in reduced inflammation and pain. Most
modern diets are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids, so a supplement like Super Omega-3 EPA may also be helpful.
