Treat Fibromylagia Naturally With Acupuncture Orlando
It is estimated that between three and six million Americans have fibromyalgia. You can help cut your risk significantly by incorporating a few simple life-style changes into your daily routines and habits. And there’s no need to feel overwhelmed by this list. Try adding one of these a little at a time so that it doesn’t seem so overwhelming. You will be surprised at the changes in your personal health!
Here are a few tips to help in preventing fibromyalgia
Eliminate processed foods from your diet, especially white sugar and white flour products. These products give our bodies little nutrition and over time can damage our digestion as well as cause obesity, one of the common problems related to fibromyalgia.
Include all unprocessed foods in your diet, such as proteins, complex and unrefined carbohydrates, vegetables, whole grains and legumes (beans and bean products) especially soy based products.
Eat foods that support the functions of the spleen and stomach( which are the organs that help us receive and break down our food for nutrition). SO, it is suggested that one avoid overly greasy foods, ice cold drinks, alcohol, raw and uncooked foods, hot, peppery foods, coffee, and too much fruit. Avoid daily juice drinks since these are the same as eating a candy bar in the amount of sugar introduced into the body.
Stop drinking sodas. Sodas are acidic in nature and loaded with sugar and chemicals. Sodas are detrimental to both the spleen and the kidneys. Milk is also acidic and should be avoided.
Find some type of exercise that you really enjoy and just do it! Pumping iron is not for everyone. You would probably benefit most from some kind of cardiovascular exercise to keep the blood moving, like swimming, yoga, stretching, and bicycling.
Take a walk every day. If you have a dog or cat, play with them daily. Animals live in the moment and love to play. This is a great way to break stressful daily routines, and help to improve ones mood.
Practice Chinese self massage every morning by stimulating the acupoints on the body and limbs to help promote the flow of Qi and blood in the channels, in addition to receiving acupuncture that will help reduce inflammation increase blood flow, and help resolve overall body aches while boosting immunity.
Buy some relaxation tapes with guided imaging. Learn how to really relax. This means bodily relaxation as well as mental repose. Use these tapes daily for the best results.
Take a look at the old habits and patterns of your life and ask yourself what you can do to make your life better. Take up tasks and hobbies that are interesting to you and break the normal routine of your day.
If you know that you have too much stress in your life, then find a solution. This may be finding a new job or new, more supportive relationships. Understand that stress alone can kill you, and if you smoke and consume alcohol to escape stressful situations, you are only fooling yourself.
Find a Chinese medical practitioner who can help you maintain good health with Chinese medicinal herbs and acupuncture. If you visit with a practitioner on a regular basis, before you become ill, then you avoid many other more serious problems later. Remember that the strong suit of Traditional Chinese Medicine is prevention.
