Fibromyalgia Requires Proper Diagnosis

Have you or anyone you know been diagnosed with fibromyalgia? Fibromyalgia literally means discomfort of muscle fibers. Left untreated it can progress to a debilitating condition; but you can get effective fibromyalgia management without drugs using mind power!

Alternative medicine approaches have made their presence known in the medical community. Regularly offered at medical treatment centers, chronic pain sufferers now have non-drug pain management options available to them.  With the horrible opioid epidemic killing so many people, it’s comforting to know other pain relief options exist.

You may be surprised to know that hypnosis, a medically recognized alternative medicine approach, has been shown to be an effective fibromyalgia management tool. Guided by a professional hypnotist, you, too, can use your mind to combat your pain.

Like any other medical condition, the autoimmune disorder called fibromyalgia must be properly diagnosed so it can be properly managed. If you wake up feeling unexplained muscle discomfort and joint pain, a visit to your primary health care provider is your first step.

This muscle discomfort malady can cause insomnia.  It makes relaxation efforts nearly impossible. Instead of taking chemical sleeping aids, a hypnotist can train you to quiet your mind and body to relax.  Relaxation can be the first step in developing the natural habit of sleep once again.

The importance of consulting your health care provider for proper diagnosis cannot be overstated. Only your doctor can rule out any other condition which may be contributing to your specific symptoms.

Is There a Cure?

Unfortunately, there is no known cure for fibromyalgia. However, if managed properly, fibromyalgia sufferers can live a fulfilling life. The debilitating effects of fibromyalgia can be avoided or at the very least be minimized. More and more doctors now recommend hypnosis as an alternative medicine treatment option.

Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM) is viewed as an adjunct to traditional medical approaches. Together they increase the possibility for a favorable response in the condition’s management. As a licensed nurse and hypnotherapist, I am glad to see hypnosis receiving its due recognition.

Wouldn’t you like to be able to manage your condition rather than your condition dictating or limiting your ability? The good news is, you can with the help of a professional hypnotist.

How Does Hypnosis Work For Fibromyalgia Management?

To be perfectly honest, we really don’t know how hypnosis works. We only know that it does. The National Institute of Health has recognized the effectiveness of hypnosis in the management of pain as has the American Medical Association.

What does hypnosis feel like? How do you know a hypnosis session works to help you manage pain? In session, you start to feel kind of floaty or dreamy.  As you listen to the hypnotist suggesting how to relax, you no longer focus on pain.  People with chronic pain conditions may be unable to work, to attend school, or feel immobilized by fatigue.  This can destroy your self-esteem. It doesn’t have to destroy you. Hypnosis CAN and DOES help people get effective and safe pain relief.

You DO have non-drug pain relief choices.  Hypnosis is one of those choices that really work.  You are encouraged to consider including hypnosis in your pain management options.

Fibromyalgia Management,
