4 options to relieve fibromyalgia at home
Some good examples of natural treatments for fibromyalgia are: medicinal plants, such as ginkgo biloba; aromatherapy with essential oils; the relaxation massages, the increased consumption of certain types of food, especially those that are rich in vitamin D and magnesium.
It is important to note that, as fibromyalgia cannot be cured, all these treatments can be used, without embargo, not to replace the medications prescribed by the doctor. Find out how the treatment is carried out.
1. Té for fibromyalgia
Some have excellent properties that improve circulation, relax the muscles and eliminate the body’s metabolites, providing an excellent help to relieve the pain caused by fibromyalgia and reduce the number of crises. Some examples of plants that can be used are:
- Ginkgo biloba;
- Hypericum or hierba de San Juan;
- Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea);
- Indian Ginseng or Bufera (Withania somnifera).
These tés can be used during the day and combined with each other, as well as with other natural techniques to relieve the symptoms of fibromyalgia.
2. Aromatherapy with essential oils
The aroma of medicinal plants reaches the olfactory cells and these stimulate certain areas of the brain, producing the desired effect. In the case of fibromyalgia, the most suitable aromatherapy is the essence of lavender, which produces good feeling, calms and relaxes the muscles.
3. Relaxation massage
Therapeutic and relaxation massages manage to increase blood circulation, eliminate toxins accumulated in the muscles, tendons and ligaments, relax and reduce pain and fatigue. When the oil used is from grape seed, it provides even more benefits, as it has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
4. Diet for Fibromyalgia
The diet can also play a very important role in relieving the fibromyalgia crisis, because some vitamins and minerals very important for the body, such as vitamin D or magnesium, apparently are found to be reduced in most people with fibromyalgia.
Therefore, to increase the levels of vitamin D, it is necessary to consume foods such as tuna, eggplant, canned sardines and those enriched with vitamin D. On the other hand, to improve the amount of magnesium it is important to increase the intake of banana, avocado, sunflower seeds, milk, granola and avena, for example.
