There is a state of the art lab test I need to tell you about in a minute but first I want you to know why it can be so important to your recovery.
#1 Fibromyalgia is a syndrome; a syndrome can be caused by many different underlying conditions.
#2 Multiple layers of dysfunction; Every Fibromyalgia patient I have worked with over the last 12 years has had multiple layers of dysfunction. That means many different underlying and aggravating factors that led to the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia.
#3 Physiological overload; This is when the multiple layers of dysfunction become so overwhelming that you are diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and due to the horrible symptoms you struggle to get through a single day.
Now with those 3 points in mind we use functional medicine laboratory testing to reduce the physiological overload by peeling back the multiple layers of dysfunction that are the foundation of the syndrome we call Fibromyalgia.
As we determine and remove the underlying and aggravating factors of Fibromyalgia the syndrome and the symptoms go away.
After using functional medicine for 12 years to help people recover from Fibromyalgia. I have several different laboratory tests that have yielded the most valuable information. One of those tests is the IGg food allergy test.
Every Fibromyalgia patient I have seen over the years has some sort of food allergy / sensitivity and many also have yeast / Candida overgrowth.
The lab test we use looks at over 90 different foods and Candida. This test is highly recommended and extremely informative for the Fibromyalgia sufferer.
When you eat foods that you are sensitive to it causes your immune system to go into attack mode which causes increased inflammation. This can cause muscle and joint pain, fatigue, gastrointestinal distress and brain fog.
The byproduct of Candida overgrowth is toxic to your system and can cause a variety of symptoms such as:
The causes of Fibromyalgia syndrome have to be discovered then removed. This lab test has been a powerful tool as we help our patients actually recover and get their lives back.
One of the nice things about this lab test is that it is done in your own home. We send out a lab kit, you simply prick your finger and put a drop of blood on the provided pad then send the test kit back to the lab. Results take about 10 days.
If you order the test kit within the next 14 days I will personally review the results with you on the telephone or using our online video chat platform and make recommendations using those results.
I wish you the very best of health
