10 true causes of fibromyalgia that your doctor will never tell you about

10 true causes of fibromyalgia

 While only an estimate, fibromyalgia affects 1 in 50 people, totaling up to 6 million. It is characterized by chronic musculoskeletal pain accompanied by symptoms like brain fog, cognitive impairment, depression, painful points throughout the body, fatigue, and sleep disturbances. The root cause of fibromyalgia still remains unclear, and the conventional medicine currently addresses its symptoms using pain-relievers and antidepressants.
On the other hand, functional medicine aims to determine the root cause of fibromyalgia, treating the underlying issue and thus reversing the condition. According to one functional medicine physician, the issues below are the top 10 root causes of fibromyalgia.

10 Root Causes Of Fibromyalgia
1. Gluten Intolerance
Gluten is often referred to as the “big masquerader” as it has been associated with over 55 diseases. Its symptoms are rarely manifested as digestive issues, but rather as neurological issues like sleep disturbances, fatigue, depression, behavioral issues, cognitive impairment, and pain.

2. Candida Overgrowth
Candida is a genus of yeasts, a small amount of which thrives in the intestines. The problem arises when it overgrows and breaks down the wall of the intestines. Consequently, it penetrates the bloodstream, releasing toxic mater within the system and causes symptoms like pain, fatigue, and brain fog. General, most patients with fibromyalgia has had Candida overgrowth.

3. Thyroid
Most people with thyroid-related issue are not aware they have one, and up to 90 percent of them suffer from hypothyroidism. In order to measure the function of the thyroid gland, the doctor has to check 6 different blood markers. When assessing and diagnosing thyroid disorders, the physician needs to focus on the optimal range instead of the standard reference range. Getting the thyroid levels in the optimal range typically relieves fatigue, sleep disturbances, depression, and brain fog.
4. Nutrient Deficiencies
Fibromyalgia patients are often deficient in magnesium, vitamin D, and vitamin B12. Interestingly, many doctors claim that boosting magnesium levels has helped them reverse the patient`s condition. The best way to measure your magnesium level is measuring the red blood cell magnesium level that can be tested in any lab.

5. Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) and Leaky Gut
Did you know that bacteria outnumber the human cells in the body? When they get out of balance, typically as a result of antibiotics and sugar-rich diet, one can lose their ability to both digest and absorb nutrients, especially vitamin B12. Anyone diagnosed with fibromyalgia or any similar chronic disease needs to fix the gut first, as this is a vicious cycle in which everything is closely related.

6. Adrenal Fatigue
Chronic stress, whether real or not, is the major cause of adrenal fatigue. Chronic pain stresses out the adrenal glands, although in most cases it`s not the initial adrenal stressor. Vitamin deficiencies, Candida, food intolerances, and mercury toxicity are the most common adrenal stressors and it is recommended to support the adrenals with adaptogenic herbs until science comes up with the root cause and the way in which it can be fixed.

7. Mycotoxins
Mycotoxins are toxic compounds produced by toxic mold. It is estimated that about 25 percent of the population carries the gene that makes one susceptible to the detrimental effects of mycotoxins. Unfortunately, conventional environmental mold testing doesn’t test for mycotoxins but for levels of mold spores only.

8. Mercury Toxicity
Mercury is highly toxic to our bodies and it is considered as potential cause of fibromyalgia and other chronic diseases like neurological disorders, autoimmune diseases, chronic fatigue syndrome, and even cancer. This is the reason why many doctors advise their patients to look for a biological dentist and get their mercury amalgam fillings removed.

9. Glutathione Deficiency
Glutathione is an important antioxidant which plays a critical role in body`s detoxification process. It gets recycled in the body, unless the toxic matter exceeds the normal amounts or the body lacks the enzymes required to produce and recycle glutathione. It has been found that taking glutathione or the precursors like mill thistle and NAC helps treat fatigue.

10. MTHFR Mutations
MTHFR is an enzyme required for methylation, an important metabolic process. During this process both folate and folic acid are converted into active forms so that the body can utilize them. Any MTHFR mutation makes the body less able to methylate and detoxify toxins like lead and mercury. The more mutations one has at this gene, the higher the requirements for folinic acic, methyl-B6 and methyl-B12 in order to maintain the detoxification process running normally.

FBI Issues Warning For Anyone Who Plans To Go Grocery Shopping

The FBI recently issued a frightening warning to frequent grocery shoppers due to this young man’s unthinkable actions. Reports have now confirmed our worst fears, as cameras captured one man visiting several grocery stores with the sole intent of spraying a poisonous mixture on open foods throughout their produce section. He later confessed to authorities that the horrifying mixture contained mouse poison, hand sanitizer, and water. The unnamed man now faces four felony counts of poisoning food and drink.

About 15 stores- including a Whole Foods Market and a Kroger- in various parts of Michigan and the mid-west may have been targeted. Stores have promptly disposed of their produce and all fresh food bars were shut down immediately.

Thankfully he has been caught, but this should be a lesson to all to be careful about the produce you are buying!

How To Easily Heal Cavities From Home

cavities

 The common belief is that once you get a cavity, it cannot be healed. That way the only solution is to go to the dentist, have a part of your tooth drilled out, and have it filled in with synthetic material.

The world has been slowly waking up to the fact that, when you nourish your body, it can heal itself in ways that we previously thought impossible. Some things have been deemed completely incurable, one being dental cavities. When you actually do the research, it is now becoming blatant that that tooth decay can be reversed, and there are proven remedies!

Naturally we all assume that it is not curable, that cavities cannot heal! The fact is, this is simply not true. According to a study done by the British Medical Journal; cavities and tooth decay can be healed or even reversed. The Study was done on 62 children all with cavities, and they were divided into three different groups. Group one ate a standard diet plus oatmeal. Group 2 consumed their normal diet and supplemented it with vitamin D. Group 3 ate a grain-free diet and took vitamin D.

The results showed that group one had an increase in cavities, two had improvements in cavities, and little to no formation, and 3 had the greatest improvements to where nearly all the cavities had healed.

This study, along with the backing of many doctors and dentists along with extensive research proves that we have all been misinformed about what caused cavities and if they can truly be reversed.


What causes tooth decay?
Not enough minerals in the diet.
Not enough fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K) in the diet.
Nutrients not being readily bioavailable and your intestinal system not properly absorbing them. The presence of phytic acid largely influences this factor.
Over a period of time, if your diet lacks certain vitamins and minerals from a poor diet and contains high levels of phytates, the blood chemistry and the ratio of calcium and phosphorous become out of balance, which results in minerals being pulled from bones, causing tooth decay, and bone loss.
How you can heal cavities and tooth decay:
Do not be fooled, there in addition to brushing and flossing your teeth daily, there are several ways you can reverse cavities and maximize your oral health. Here are a few ways to consider:

Remove sugar
Sugar is one of the worst culprits there is for anyone who desires healthy, cavity-free teeth, sugar should be completely rid from our diet. Sugar feeds oral bacteria that prevents a healthy flow of dental fluids; it is highly acidic and can decalcify or demineralize the structural content of teeth that creates dental decay.

Removing Phytic Acid
Phytic acid is a mineral blocker and enzyme inhibitor found in grains, nuts, seeds, and beans that can cause serious health problems. The main reason phytic acid has become an issue today is because we have stopped ancient food preparation techniques such as sprouting or sourdough fermentation that kills off the phytic acid.

Oil Pulling
Oil pulling has been used for centuries as an Ayurvedic medicine, oil pulling is an amazing way to start the detoxification procedure that has gained some popularity in the U.S. that last several years.

The best time to oil pull (like most other detoxification procedures) is first thing in the morning right after you get out of bed.
Don’t let the 20 minutes time frame deter you. You won’t even notice 20 minutes have gone by if you do this during your normal morning routine (i.e. while you shower, put your clothes on and prep for the day).
Immediately afterwards, rinse your mouth out with warm water. Use salt water for added antimicrobial properties.
Don’t be shocked if the oil/saliva mixture you spit out is milky white or yellow.
Finally, brush your teeth as normal.

Tips:
A diet high in minerals is very important.
A diet high in soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K.
A diet that helps all the minerals and vitamins to get absorbed in your body. This depends on the level of Phytic acid in your diet.
Supplements to consider are:
Fermented cod liver oil – very high in fat-soluble vitamins A, D and K.
Magnesium – required to use calcium and phosphorous effectively.
Gelatin – if you don’t have time to make bone broth, this is a good alternative and is great for gums and digestion

Wrapped Ginger – Treats Bad Cough And Removes Mucus From The Lungs in One Night!

Persistent coughing and sneezing can be a real nuisance and can leave you or your children without sleep and energy during the day. Coughs can wake you up overnight and ruin your morning, which is why everyone is looking to get rid of them one way or the other.

Coughs are usually treated with cough syrup in most parts of the world. The syrup does work, but it does so at the expense of our health. This drug contains a variety of chemicals which can significantly harm your health, and its prolonged use can cause quite a lot of side-effects which can strain your immune system too much. Luckily, there’s a natural remedy that can help, and includes the use of two common ingredients we all have in our kitchen – honey and ginger.

The ginger-honey wraps are ideal for alleviating coughs and sneezes. They will reinforce your immune system and treat colds and similar infections, and are even great for children. Here’s how to prepare them:

 Ingredients
Organic honey
A tablespoon of ginger powder (or grated ginger)
Olive oil
Flour
Gauze
Napkin
Adhesive tape

Preparation
Mix the flour and honey well, then add the olive oil and grated ginger and mix well again. Put the paste on a napkin and wrap it in gauze, then apply it on your or your child’s chest and stick with adhesive tape. Leave the mixture to work 3 hours before going to bed or overnight, then remove it in the morning and rinse with lukewarm water.

The remedy doesn’t have any side-effects other than skin irritation due to the powerful effects of ginger. In this case, put a bit more honey and use the wrap as instructed. The wrap works great and will get you some much-needed relief from coughing and sneezing.

Selfless: 21-year-old mother gives up her life to save 12-day-old baby.

Wyoming, Illinois, is a small town with a population of about 1,400. It’s safe to say that almost everyone knows everyone there, and that’s exactly the kind of tight-knit community where 21-year-old Shelby Ann Carter wanted to have a family.
She and her fiancé lived with her mother. Shelby worked as a beautician and had started studying to become a pharmacy technician. Then, in January 2017, she gave birth to her daughter Keana Davis. Shelby was overjoyed and it looked like all was going well for the young mother and her family.

But unfortunately, her happiness was about to come to tragic end.

“She was making her mark in town,” said the town’s mayor. But on January 30 — only one day after her 21st birthday — tragedy struck. Shelby was at home with her daughter when a fire broke out. She called 911 for help and told them that she was having trouble breathing. She hadn’t said anything about her child which led to some confusion when firefighters finally reached the scene.

Emergency responders found Shelby on the second floor of the house, but it was too late — she had died of carbon monoxide poisoning. But when they finally put out the flames and surveyed the scene, they found something truly astonishing: Shelby’s 12-day-old daughter! What had happened?

Although the house was engulfed in flames, Shelby didn’t let that stop her from doing all she could for her child. Finding herself and her daughter trapped on the second floor, she quickly came up with an ingenious idea and rescued Keana Davis by strapping her into a car seat and dropping her out of the window. Shelby had obviously used her last ounce of strength to make sure that her child survived.

“I guess it’s the motherly instinct to take care of their young. We’re all wondering why she didn’t go out after the baby,” explained the chief of the local volunteer fire department.

Keana Davis was rushed to the hospital where it was determined that she was completely unharmed. She was released to the custody of her relatives. Her mother was gone, but she still had a family.

After the accident, the community banded together and started a fundraising campaign to help the family rebuild their house and their lives. In only one week they were able to raise the target amount of $40,000.

 Keana Davis will never have the chance to know her mother, but at least she can be proud of her. Shelby is a true hero and will be dearly remembered by her community for many years to come. What a wonderful response that their neighbors banded together to help them rebuild their lives as they come to terms with their loss.

Popular Vegetable Recalled in 7 Brands, 21 States After Deadly Bacteria Found

On Thursday, the National Frozen Food Corporation announced that they would be recalling one of their popular products. The recall was due to the discovery of a listeria contamination.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that a variety of frozen green beans as well as some other vegetable products were being recalled. The recall stretches to seven different brands and 21 different states.

The FDA said that the products “have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.”

They continued, “Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.”

The frozen green beans and vegetables were distributed to the following states:

Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Washington.

The following brands were a part of the recall:

Bountiful Harvest Foundations and Originals, Monarch, NW Treasure, Simplot Classic, Sysco Classic and Imperial, Valamont, and The World’s Harvest. There were several other “cut green beans” with no brand names

Below is the list of the brands with the code numbers:

 If you know someone who buys these products, share this to spread awareness about this recall. In other recent news, an actor of a popular kid’s show just died at 52. Please pray for his family and friends during this difficult tim

Everyone Backed Away When They Saw This. Except This Mother.

A mother had one last assignment for her sociogoly class before graduating — to “smile at everyone she meets.” But after an encounter with two men in McDonald’s she took it one step further. Read her story, that was emailed to us by a reader, below.

I am a mother of three (ages 14, 12, 3) and have recently completed my college degree. The last class I had to take was Sociology. The teacher was absolutely inspiring with the qualities that I wish every human being had been graced with. Her last project of the term was called “Smile.”
The class was asked to go out and smile at three people and document their reactions. I am a very friendly person and always smile at everyone and say hello anyway…..so, I thought, this would be a piece of cake, literally.

Soon after we were assigned the project, my husband, youngest son, and I went out to McDonald’s, one crisp March morning. It was just our way of sharing special play time with our son. We were standing in line, waiting to be served, when all of a sudden everyone around us began to back away, and then even my husband did. I did not move an inch … an overwhelming feeling of panic welled up inside of me as I turned to see why they had moved.

 As I turned around I smelled a horrible “dirty body” smell…and there standing behind me were two poor homeless men. As I looked down at the short gentleman, close to me, he was “smiling.” His beautiful sky blue eyes were full of God’s Light as he searched for acceptance.

He said, “Good day” as he counted the few coins he had been clutching.

The second man fumbled with his hands as he stood behind his friend. I realized the second man was mentally deficient and the blue eyed gentleman was his salvation. I held my tears….as I stood There with them. The young lady at the counter asked him what they wanted.

He said, “Coffee is all Miss” because that was all they could afford to sit in the restaurant and warm up, they had to buy something…he just wanted to be warm. Then I really felt it…the compulsion was so great I almost reached out and embraced the little man with the blue eyes. That is when I noticed all eyes in the restaurant were set on me…judging my every action. I smiled and asked the young lady behind the counter to give me two more breakfast meals on a separate tray.

I then walked around the corner to the table that the men had chosen as a resting spot. I put the tray on the table and laid my hand on the blue eyed gentleman’s cold hand.

He looked up at me, with tears in his eyes, and said, “Thank you.” I leaned over, began to pat his hand and said, “God is here working through me to give you hope.”

I walked in tears to join my husband and son.

When I sat down my husband smiled at me. We held hands for a moment and at that time we knew that only because of the Grace that we had been given were we able to give. We are not churchgoers but we are believers. That day showed me the pure Light of God’s sweet love.

I returned to college, on the last evening of class, with this story in hand.

I turned in “my project” and the instructor read it….then she looked up at me and said, “Can I share this?”

I slowly nodded and she read it to the class.

In my own way I had touched the people at McDonald’s, my husband, son, instructor, and every soul that shared the classroom on the last night I spent as a college student. I graduated with one of the biggest lessons I would ever learn….UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE.

Much love and compassion sent to each and every person who may read this.

Warning signs of a stroke – PLEASE READ

I URGE YOU ALL TO READ & SHARE THIS; YOU COULD SAVE A LIFE BY KNOWING AND PASSING ON THIS SIMPLE INFORMATION.

Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke – They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue.

During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine and she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Jane’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don’t die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this.

 A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.

IDENTIFYING A STROKE

Thank God for the sense to remember the ‘3’ steps, STR.

Read and Learn!
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
S *Ask the individual to SMILE.

T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. Chicken Soup)
R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke ——– Stick out Your Tongue

NOTE: Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is this: Ask the person to ‘stick’ out their tongue. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.

A cardiologist said that if everyone who gets this message shared it with 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.

I have done my part. Will you?
