Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue

The Root Causes of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue

Welcome to Restore To Health Naturopathic Clinic and Wellness Center’s website. My name is Dr. Vernon Jenkins. I have personally had to deal with these two conditions I fully understand how devastating they can be. They just about ended my career. For me getting out of bed to go to the restroom took all the energy I could muster. My entire body was ravaged with pain. The pain in the bones of my legs felt like my legs were broken. No matter how much sleep I got whether it was 14 or 18 hours it was never enough and I would end up having to take several naps during the day. It felt as if I was barely keeping alive. No pain medication of any sorts had any benefit of offering me any relief. I also experienced terrible nightmares/night terrors, depression, and anxiety. Acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, and nutritional supplements only offered a very small amount of temporary relief. I was a prisoner in my own body and was experiencing tortuous pain constantly. Unfortunately most medical doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors, nutritionists, and acupuncturists don’t understand the root causes, how to diagnose the root causes, or how to treat the root causes in order to restore true health and vitality. These well intended health care providers only know how to treat the symptoms but not the root causes. If you or someone you know has fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue there is realistic help available to restore their health and vitality with natural therapies, education, and Functional Medicine protocols that are offered through the Restore To Health Naturopathic Clinic and Wellness Center.

According to the Mayo Clinic they define fibromyalgia as a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory, and mood issues. Please note that fibromyalgia is classified as a disorder and not a disease. For years and even nowadays medical doctors would not and will not even consider fibromyalgia a disorder but only a psychological problem.  Symptoms can begin after an acute physical, emotional, and or psychological trauma; surgery; infection; or some significant stressful event. At other times symptoms may appear gradually in chronic toxic, traumatic, and stressful events. Women tend to develop fibromyalgia more than men. Fibromyalgia can be accompanied by tension headaches, TMJ disorders, IBS, anxiety, and depression.

Medical doctors will prescribe different medications to TREAT the Symptoms and not offer any cure. These medications include pain medicines, sleeping pills, and antidepressants. These medications come with the side effects of drowsiness, dizziness, dry mouth, dry eyes, constipation, stomach problems, heartburn, nausea, stomach ulcers, vomiting, stomach bleeding, liver damage, blurred vision, clumsiness, unsteadiness, change in urine color, seizures, confusion, hallucinations, other serious side effects, and are very addictive. Thankfully there are inexpensive tests to diagnose the root causes and natural, safe, and proven therapies to treat the fibromyalgia in order to restore health and vitality without any side effects.

At Restore To Health Naturopathic Clinic and Wellness Centerr we look at four different root causes of fibromyalgia.

  1. Adrenal gland dysfunction is the number one root cause of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. The adrenal gland produces the hormones cortisol, adrenaline, and noradrenaline which are the hormones responsible for fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue when these hormones become imbalanced. Cortisol is the major hormone and it has a catabolic effect on every cell in the body. Restore to Health Naturopathic Clinic and Wellness Center offers the patients the saliva Adrenal Stress Index Test which costs $120.00. The saliva test is much more accurate than a cortisol blood test and we get a lot more diagnostic information about the patient’s health status. Once we have the lab report we can put together a treatment protocol using safe, non-toxic, natural therapies to restore optimal adrenal function.
  2. The second root cause of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue are undiagnosed low grade chronic infections. Restore to Health Naturopathic Clinic and Wellness Center offers lab testing to check for bacterial, viral, fungal, and mycoplasma infections which could be contributing to the fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue directly or indirectly. Restore to Health Naturopathic Clinic and Wellness Center offers safe, natural, and non-toxic anti-microbials to rid the body of the microbial infections.
  3. The third root cause of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue are food sensitivities and food allergies and exposure to mycotoxins found in food and beverages. Restore To Health Naturopathic Clinic and Wellness Center offers lab testing to check for these problems and offers dietary plans to help the patient.
  4. The last root cause of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue is exposure to toxic substances such as certain medications like chemotherapy and interferon, heavy metals, and other chemical agents. Restore to Health Naturopathic Clinic and Wellness Center offers lab testing to determine if these substances are affecting your fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue and offers safe, natural, non-toxic therapies to rid the body of these substances.
