If you are reading this blog post, you may be one of the 3-5% of the population suffering with the condition called fibromyalgia. Or, perhaps you know someone who suffers from this mysterious ailment. This blog post contains some effective, non-drug ideas for fibromyalgia management. If this interests you, please keep reading. Maybe you’ll get some relief!
Over 80% of fibromyalgia sufferers are women. It currently appears to be one of the fastest growing and disabling conditions in the United States. Therefore, anytime is a great time to do something natural, gentle and effective for fibromyalgia management.
Let’s do a simple exercise that can give you natural relief from fibromyalgia’s characteristic chronic pain and fatigue.
- Get to a distraction-free place for this exercise.
- Now that you are alone to focus on you, notice the feeling in your shoulders. If your muscles feel tense, inhale deeply through your nose and count out loud or silently to yourself, “1, 2, 3.” When you say the number three, exhale. Relax your shoulder muscles.
- As you exhale out through your mouth, say out loud, “I’ve just counted to three and relaxed my shoulder muscles. This feels good.”
- As you acknowledge out loud you can relax, let the relaxed feeling flow further down your upper torso and down the rest of your body. As you inhale, do so through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Allow yourself this moment to relax by focusing on your breath.
- Repeat as you desire.
Why is this such a great exercise to help you naturally relax and let go of tension? Because as you inhale and exhale, you are bringing in oxygen. We all need oxygen to stay alive. But in the case of pain relief for fibromyalgia management, bringing in oxygen actually helps you naturally detox.
Natural Fibromyalgia Management Relief
Your body was designed to heal itself. It needs oxygen, sufficient brain chemistry and all the body fluids it has to contribute to healing. As you take the time to use the power of your own mind, you are hypnotizing yourself. What?!? Really? Relaxing, inhaling and exhaling is hypnosis? Oh, go on!
To start enjoying natural fibromyalgia management relief, the skill of hypnotizing oneself can be very handy. When you purposely relax, you let your body restore itself. A restored body is one that can be free from chronic pain and fatigue more easily. Hey, hypnosis is better than taking pills. And, it works!
No Specific Lab Tests to Diagnose Fibromyalgia
To date, no medical or scientific professional can administer specific tests to diagnose fibromyalgia. Instead the fibromyalgia diagnosis relies on observing and reporting symptoms and tender points along the body.
Fibromyalgia can limit you, but doesn’t have to when you regularly use natural ways of getting pain relief. Hypnosis can markedly help you turn off pain receptor sites and give you the relief you need. Used regularly, you can develop the hypnosis habit for effective fibromyalgia management.
So, what do you want to do for yourself regarding pain management? Want to diminish your pain and fatigue naturally? If so, think hypnosis!
