Fibromyalgia: Causes and Relief
What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a long-term condition which causes widespread pain throughout the body as well as a heightened response to pressure and fatigue. Less common symptoms of this condition also include difficulty sleeping, regular headaches, irritable bowel syndrome and muscle stiffness.
Fibromyalgia affects approximately 1 in 30 of the population, with more women suffering than men. Although it can occur at any age, it is usually developed between the ages of 30 and 60.
What Causes Fibromyalgia?
The exact causes of fibromyalgia are not clear but at Vevay Holistic Dental Centre, we believe that amalgam fillings play a major role in the cause of the disorder. Doctors and specialists agree that one of the most likely causes of fibromyalgia is due to problems with the way pain messages are sent and received in your body through the central nervous system.
Mercury, the metal found in amalgam fillings, is extremely toxic and affects the nervous system, making it a likely cause of the condition. Not only that, but mercury has been scientifically linked to almost every single symptom related to fibromyalgia. The mercury emitted from amalgam fillings is absorbed by the body during talking, chewing and swallowing.
How Can I Relieve Fibromyalgia Symptoms?
Although there is no cure for fibromyalgia, there are several steps you can take to relieve your symptoms. Medicines and exercise routines can provide relief, however; because the causes of fibromyalgia have been linked to amalgam fillings, it’s strongly recommended that you see a dentist if you are suffering from fibromyalgia symptoms.By removing these fillings and replacing them with more modern and safe fillings, you reduce the risk of developing neurological diseases, such as fibromyalgia, and can therefore improve your overall health and wellbeing.
