11 True Causes of Fibromyalgia That Your Doctor Will Never Tell You About

by in Health, Natural Cures February 21, 2017

Fibromyalgia has been estimated to affect around six million people, that is one in fifty. Do you have Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is usually characterized by chronic pain, fatigue, brain fog, cognitive impairment, depression, and sleep disturbances. Conventional medicine has not yet concluded as to what the cause for this is. They only offer means of managing the symptoms of it through medications like pain pills and antidepressants. This is not something that will ever go anywhere because conventional medicine is all about making money off of sick people.

Doctors will never tell you the things that could be causing this. The top eleven causes of Fibromyalgia can be singled out when you look deep and try to assess the root cause. If you have Fibromyalgia look into these and see if they may be your underlying issue. Dr. Amy Myers M.D. Says she has helped thousands around the world recover from chronic illnesses like this one through her dietary based program.

Mercury Toxicity

If you have mercury amalgam fillings, have them removed. Mercury is toxic to our bodies as you may already know. Have yourself tested for heavy metals as soon as possible.

Glutathione Deficiency

Glutathione is a molecule that is very critical when it comes to detoxification in our bodies. This is something our bodies recycles unless the toxic burden is too high. Sometimes we lack the enzymes needed in order to recycle and produce glutathione.

MTHFR Mutations

You can get a test for this done through any conventional lab. The more mutations you have at the MTHFR gene the less able you are to methylate and detoxify toxins like lead and mercury.


These are extremely toxic substances that are produced by toxic molds. Only about twenty-five percent of the population carries the genes to be susceptible to the effects of mycotoxins. Use a urine mycotoxin test to determine if you have been exposed to these.

Adrenal Fatigue

This the result of chronic stress. chronic pain is a stress to the adrenal glands. Now, the initial stressor is usually something like a food intolerance or something along those lines.

Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth 

We are full of bacteria. When these bacteria get out of balance we can lose our ability to digest and absorb nutrients. Gluten can cause SIBO as well as leaky gut.

Leaky Gut

Leaky gut can come from food intolerances and is a vicious cycle once it begins. With any illness fixing your gut health first is most important.

Vitamin Deficiencies

Deficiencies in things like vitamin D, B12, and magnesium can cause this issue. They are common in people who have fibromyalgia.


Most of the people out there in this world are dealing with thyroid issues and they don’t even know it. It is vital that your doctor checks six different blood markers in order to measure your thyroid gland’s function. Make sure that they use optimal levels rather than standard reference range when assessing and diagnosing thyroid disorders.

Candida Overgrowth

Candida is a fungus or yeast. A small amount of it lives in your intestines and when it is overproduced it breaks down the wall of your intestines and can penetrate into your bloodstream. This is very bad because it releases toxic byproducts into your body and causes a large amount of unpleasant symptoms.

Gluten Intolerance

This is actually the most common out of all of the causes I have mentioned. Gluten has been linked with more than fifty-five diseases. Gluten intolerance can cause symptoms you wouldn’t think of usually.

Sometimes these things are caused by a combination of the listed things above and not just one of them. Getting to the root cause of things like this can be complex and take time. However, if you find a physician in your area that will work with you and uncover the issue you will be able to reduce or eliminate your symptoms without pain pills or antidepressants. There are many functional medicine physicians out there that can help with the proper testing needed for these things.
