Fibromyalgia relief

Fibromyalgia is a disorder that is characterized by crippling symptoms such as pain throughout the whole body, fatigue, sleep disruptions, and chronic headaches. It is a disorder that is so hard to pinpoint, that it is diagnosed by ruling out other disorders. The cause of fibromyalgia is unknown, but the pains are attributed to processes in the central nervous system. Treatment of this particular disorder can be very hard and fibromyalgia can last for a long time. Therefore, finding relief from the symptoms of fibromyalgia is important. The Wim Hof Method can give you tools to relieve some of the symptoms related to fibromyalgia.

How to relieve fibromyalgia in a natural manner

Besides taking medication, there are some natural things that can help you find relief from the symptoms related to fibromyalgia. The following methods can help you sleep better, can improve your energy levels, and can relieve some of the pain related to fibromyalgia.

Yoga. There have been some scientific studies that explored the effects of practicing yoga on the symptoms of fibromyalgia. A combination of yoga poses, breathing exercises, and meditation relieved pain, improved the mood of the participants, and made them feel more energetic afterwards.

Breathing exercises. Proper breathing can help people who suffer from fibromyalgia in managing pain and emotional stress. Moreover, many sufferers from fibromyalgia are experiencing shortness of breath. Breathing exercises can help normalizing their breathing patterns.

Sleep hygiene. Proper sleep is essential to restore energy levels. Fibromyalgia often interferes with sleep cycles and causes disrupted sleep patterns. Therefore, optimizing sleep quality as much as possible is key. Practicing good sleep hygiene like going to bed and waking up around the same time everyday can help.

Stress management. People who suffer from fibromyalgia are feeling tired and low on energy all the time. Stress can drain your energy even more. Therefore, proper stress management is important for people suffering from fibromyalgia. Try meditating and biofeedback training to handle stressful events.

Exercise. It is very important that sufferers from fibromyalgia stay as active as they can possibly be. That is because exercising has a positive impact on fatigue, pain, and sleep. Therefore, regular exercise is recommended, even though it might be hard.

After 8 months of daily Hoffing, puffing and cold showers I can claim to be cured of my 5 year burnout. Not having had a single cold or flu, my sore knee is working perfectly again, which was very painful the last 2 years. It is like a miracle, and I’m really grateful that our paths crossed.

Wim I hope to train with you someday. I love to jump into that cold water and climb that mountain with you. Your method has truly helped me with psoriatic arthritis. I am no longer taking Humira injections for my symptoms. I am controlling it with breathing, cold showers and ice baths.

I would have paid $10,000 for this, but that would not be enough because this has changed my life. I feel like I have taken Valium yet am supercharged. As a clinical psychologist my days can be very stressful. There is a stillness inside me now, and what I am really amazed by is the peace lasts.

I started the Wim Hof method in October of 2018, and now the holes I had in my brain are gone. My neurosurgeon was so impressed by the scans that he told me I don't have to come back anymore. I take this as proof that this method works to regenerate brain tissue.
