It is estimated that fibromyalgia affects nearly 6 million or 1 in 50 people, causing chronic pain, particularly muscle pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances, brain fog, or cognitive impairment, depression and painful tender points throughout the body.
Unfortunately fibromyalgia affects millions of people, with little to no help provided by mainstream medicine. Conventional medicine focuses only on managing symptoms through pain medications and antidepressants. People struggling with fibromyalgia are typically given pain medication, antidepressants and are told to learn to cope with their symptoms. The problem is that a fibromyalgia diagnosis tells you the symptoms of the disease, not the underlying causes. Because of this, a diagnosis is a starting point, not an answer to your problems.
At Rising Health, on the other hand, we look to find the root cause of fibromyalgia and other chronic conditions. We work to uncover the myriad underlying factors that cause chronic conditions like fibromyalgia. This process begins with running labs that typically aren’t used in the conventional model, which is largely concerned with diagnosing a disease and matching it with a corresponding drug. Functional medicine is also called “systems medicine” because it looks at all the different systems of your body and their complex interactions. Some of the things we look at to help uncover the underlying causes of fibromyalgia in each patient include gut health, environmental toxicities, hormones, nutrients and nervous system function. We work to treat the problems causing fibromyalgia at the root level in order to restore you to health.
