An estimated 10 million Americans suffer from "the invisible disease" that has been misunderstood by doctors. In this episode, you'll learn:
--Why Dr. Prather considers it to be an autoimmune disease of the lymph system, and how the lymphatic system ("the sewage system of the body") works.
--The common misdiagnosis between Fibromyalgia and Myofascitiis. (Distinguishing between lymph system and the muscles.)
--The many causes of Fibromyalgia (digestive issues, food allergies, Lyme Disease, Epstein-Barr, environmental sensitivities, weakened immune system) and why correct diagnostics are absolutely necessary to properly treat each patient individually.
--The symptoms of Fibromyalgia (pain throughout the body that lasts at least three months, 11 of 18 palpation points where the lymph system is congested, fatigue, brain fog, sleep disturbance, irritable bowel syndrome, headaches and migraines, anxiety and depression).
--Why the National Fibromyalgia Association states that Chiropractic is the most helpful treatment for Fibromyalgia. (And the specific Chiropractic adjusting techniques that are effective for Fibromyalgia.)
--The effectiveness of Acupuncture and Dr. Prather's analysis of the flawed research conclusions on the subject. And why Dr. Prather sees better results when combining Chiropractic and Acupuncture.
--The dramatic changes Auriculotherapy can bring for Fibromyalgia in getting the autonomic nervous system functioning correctly. And the Quantitative EEG (qEEG) treatment that can restore proper brain wave activity after Fibromyalgia throws off your brain waves.
--How short-wave Diathermy opens up lymphatic tissue. And why 100% of Fibromyalgia patients have a weakened immune system.
--The role of diet and lifestyle in fighting and preventing Fibromyalgia. (Plus, why Dr. Prather says "everyone with Fibromyalgia has food allergies" and the 5-day rotation diet he recommends to relieve 80% if the stress on the lymph system.)
--The three major pumps of the lymph system and why Fibromyalgia patients need to exercise those three areas. And why depression and anxiety increase your odds of developing Fibromyalgia 10-fold.
