Most doctors say there is nothing that can be done about Fibromyalgia, making it a very frustrating for patients. But Dr. Prather has a different message. In this episode, you'll learn:
--That Fibromyalgia is misdiagnosed a tremendous amount, both telling patients they have Fibromyalgia (when they don't) and telling patients that they don't have Fibromyalgia (when they do).
--How Fibromyalgia is an autoimmune disease of the lymphatic system, where a pathogen or toxin has hit the Lymph system.
--How to diagnose Fibromyalgia by "POKING" the patient. And why it is an easy diagnosis for Dr. Prather to make as a Chiropractor, when Medical Doctors have more difficulty.
--How proper diagnosis of Fibromyalgia is critical, especially finding which one of the "thousands" of different possible underlying causes behind it. And the 3 types of diagnostic tests you need to determine that root cause.
--How Dr. Prather says he finds that the root cause of Fibromyalgia is in the gut for the majority of cases.
--Why Chiropractic care to get the nervous system working properly is important for Fibromyalgia patients and can produce "dramatic" results from just getting the body in proper position.
--How Acupuncture (even non-needle options!) benefits Fibromyalgia patients through reduced inflammation and decreased pain levels.
--Why Dr. Prather says Diathermy is one of his favorite ways of getting the Lymphatic system flowing so that the pain "is just gone " after the treatment.
--How Dr. Prather uses Homeopathy to boost the body's immune response to specific infections that cause Fibromyalgia. And why he says that treating Fibromyalgia without Homeopathy is a "disservice" to patients.
--How diet impacts Fibromyalgia patients and why figuring out which foods you are allergic to is important.
