Good Nutrition Helps FiIght Fibromyalgia

Whenever possible, nutritional intake is the first choice to correct or balance your body levels. I’m sure you’ve found that recommended diets for Fibromyalgia and Fatigue patients vary depending on the latest book you’ve read. Confusing? Of Course! Below is a good, general guide to start with.

Successful management of your condition requires that you understand your body, take a very serious approach to managing your condition and adhere to some very basic health and nutrition principles.

Manageable Dietary Suggestions

3 balanced meals per day will help to maintain an even flow of energy. While some may find multiple smaller meals throughout the day tend to give you bursts of energy, the result may be an increase workload on the digestive system. For some, the multiple small meals throughout the day provide a means to maintain a consistent and controlled metabolic rate. Only through trial and error with close monitoring of your body’s reactions, can you determine the most advantageous pattern.

Eat Healthy! Fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains all contribute to boosting your immune system. Avoid “Diet” products. Artificial sweeteners and many weight loss products, through extensive research, have shown they may cause a variety of symptoms and conditions such as joint and muscle pain, cognitive disturbances and hormonal imbalances. 

Balance Carbohydrate and Protein. Balancing your carbohydrates and proteins assists you to keep your weight in check through consumption of a reasonable caloric intake while not compromising nutritional value. Consult with your physician to determine your specific needs.
