Vitamins for Pain Prevention

Wow, this is super interesting. I take all these vitamins,(B-complex, C and D) so I am glad to read this to re-affirm that they are indeed helping with my pain AND my health!


This is great. I follow his blog and he just has awesome info all the time, but I really like this simple technique of relaxing the jaw and easing tension. I know I clench my jaw a lot, unfortunately especially when sleeping :/ But this technique helps during the daytime, esp at work :)

Benefits of ProBiotics

Has anyone else tried ProBiotics? I tried the pill forms, but didn't like so much. What I have found was easy for me is the YoPlus probiotic yogurt by Yoplait. It's healthy, low cal and just seems to keep me right and balanced :) Its a great little snack too to keep around for at work or before I head off to yoga. Satisfies hunger and keeps me on a healthy track :)

Change Your Diet & Start Healing

A VERY good read. A lot of the foods are anti-inflammatory, so I think this is a good healthy diet for help with fibro too. And keep reading through the article, I guarantee chocolate is included!

The extensive research published in the last decade alone proves that what you eat can have a profound effect on your protection against cancer. But my doctor's answer was hardly surprising. It's a little-known fact that nutrition is barely taught in med schools, where the solution to most problems is a drug. And doctors don't trust patients to make lifestyle changes. I recall a conversation with a fellow physician at a conference after I spoke on the importance of a healthy diet in fighting disease. "You may be right, David, but people don't want to change," he said. "They just want to take a pill and forget about it." I don't know whether he's right, but after all the study I've done, I know it isn't true for me.
