How Can We Treat Fibromyalgia?
A controlled study of the efficiency of medical ozone therapy in the treatment of fibromyalgia (By Prof. Dr. med. Z. Fahmy, Chief Consulting Rheumatologist, Augusta Clinic for Rheumatic Diseases, West Germany)
Presented the following conclusions:
- Ozone had a significant effect in fibromyalgia compared to two control groups
- Ozone treatment was considered a “safe” therapy compared to other modalities
- Long term therapy with ozone reduced pain in fibromyalgia
- Ozone improved the life quality of the fibromyalgia patients
Medical ozone therapy is a well-established treatment system in Europe,particularly Germany. In Cuba, where ozone was introduced by the Russians, ozone is available on their national health system. Medical ozone is generated from medical oxygen, and has the therapeutic properties of being anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and creates an oxygen rich environment in the cells of tissue being treated.
Electro Acupuncture & Brain Frequency Deficiencies
Acupuncture as a treatment modality is well established for pain and inflammation management through its influence on endorphin levels. Following brain frequency analysis on the fibromyalgia patient, deficiency frequencies can be applied to the needles in electro acupuncture, to add a very individual component to acupuncture treatment.
Chiropractic treatment is being used to complement traditional medicine to treat fibromyalgia (FM). A recent study examined chiropractic treatments that combined ischemic compression and spinal manipulation. The big question: Do these treatments effectively reduce pain, sleep disturbances, and fatigue associated with FM?
(Hains G, Hains F. Private practice of chiropractic, Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada.)
Twenty-four subjects participated – all were adult members of a regional Fibromyalgia Association who had suffered from FM for more than 3 months. Each subject received 30 different treatments combining ischemic compression and spinal manipulation. After treatment, subjects were evaluated for pain, fatigue levels, and sleep quality. After just 15 treatments, subjects noted significantly less pain and fatigue and improved sleep. After 30 treatments, subjects noted average lessening in pain and improvements in fatigue levels and quality of sleep. These improvements remained constant one month after the study ended.
