FAQ's for Fibromyalgia

Looking for information on nutritional support for fibromyalgia. The Feingold Diet sounds like the sort of thing I need, but I need to know more. Also, do you know what foods contain salycilates? I've been told that they can exacerbate fibromyalgia. Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry this has taken so long to reply to you. I'm not sure about the Feingold Diet. I haven't read much about it. As far as salycilates, they are used to flavor foods such as cake mixes, puddings, ice cream, chewing gum and soft drinks. They occur naturally in some foods, especially in berries and dried fruits. Raisins and prunes have the highest. Also in candies made of licorice and peppermint. Moderate levels are found in nuts and seeds. You should stay away from curry powder, paprika, thyme, dill, oregano, and turmeric.

Some important things for fibromyalgia are Coenzyme Q10, acidophilus and a good full spectrum supplement. This way your body has what it needs to heal itself. For information on our F-Kit (nutritional support for fibromyalgia at a $5 savings) click here.

Once you have noticed that your symptoms match those of FM, do you live with it and simply manage it for the rest of your life? Or, can you actually have it go away for good? Thanks.

This condition is relatively new, yet it's appearing in epidemic numbers. Dr. Whiting (a orthomolecular nutritionist), finds in his work with people suffering with this that they are all very toxic. When their systems have been properly detoxified their symptoms all but disappear. His personal feeling is that this is a condition of hyper-toxicity and manifests itself in people who are unable to physically cope with the overload of toxins in their system.

Here's Dr. Whiting's protocol for Fibromyalgia:

  • Full Spectrum Nutrition........as per label
  • Detoxifying Herbal Combinations....as per label
  • Liquid Oxygen.............1 ounce 3 times per day
  • Glucosamine Sulfate....400 mg per day
  • Condroitin Sulfate.......400 mg per day
  • Vitamin B-6..................25 mg per day
  • Vitamin C....................Bowel Tolerance
  • 5-HTP......................... 100 mg 3 times per day
  • Kava Kava.................. per label instructions

Here's a link for the products that we highly recommend: Ultra Body Toddy, Rainforest Toddy, and Oxy Toddy. Hope this information helps!
