Q.        Is fibromyalgia hereditary?

A.        In my experience, fibromyalgia is not hereditary, it is a learned behavior.  The reason it appears to “run in the family” is because family members tend to share the same or similar dietary habits, outlook on life, and lifestyle.

Symptoms of fibromyalgia include chronic widespread pain in the joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues, accompanied by sleep disturbances, headaches, chronic fatigue, mind fog, depression and anxiety.  In some severe cases, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders and irritable bowel syndrome are also present.

Currently there are no diagnostic tests, such as x-rays or blood tests, to detect fibromyalgia.  The diagnosis of fibromyalgia is based on self reports.  Fibromyalgia affects people of all ages in both females and males, but is most common among women aged 20 to 50.

Based on my more than three decades of clinical experience working with clients with fibromyalgia, I have found that causes of fibromyalgia include yeast and parasitic infections, poor dietary habits, lack of exercise (including sexercise), perception of being un-loved, emotional and/or physical trauma, and stress.

I will discuss how to overcome symptoms of fibromyalgia in the next article, please stay tuned.

As mentioned in the previous article, leaky gut syndrome is not a recognized diagnosis by the western medical establishment.  The symptoms of leaky gut syndrome mimic symptoms discussed in previous articles including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, Irritated Bowel Syndrome, Lyme disease, etc.  It does not matter what kind of diagnosis you have, what matters is that you need to get well!

Many medical doctors may say there was “nothing wrong” with you according to their tests; or worse, you were told it was “all in your head” and gave you prescriptions for depression, pain, insomnia, etc.

Based on my more than three decades of clinical experience working with clients with inflammations of the gastric-intestinal tract (GI tract), the following have been the most effective holistic treatment methods:

1)    Yeast-free nutritional program:

If you have been reading my articles, you must be familiar with my yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  My clients call it “Dr. J’s Eight Commandments”.  You might ask, “How long should I stay on Dr. J’s yeast-free nutritional program?”  This is essentially a nutritional program for life.  This is why I do not label this program a “diet.”  Diets denote a temporary eating habit.  If you want to nourish your body and starve the yeasts and parasites, it is recommended that you stay on our yeast-free nutritional program as much as you can, especially in the first three to six months of the treatment.  When your immunity is stronger, you can “relax” a little bit on the no-no items.  However, you do need to prepare for the consequences whenever you deviate from our yeast-free nutritional program.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.


2)    Herbal Therapy

Based on my clinical experience, I have found that many diagnoses share the same symptoms of yeast and parasitic infections.  Once we remove excessive yeasts and parasites in the body, the inflammation of the GI tract is under control.  Our Yeast-Para Control formula is designed for this purpose.  According to my best knowledge, our Yeast-Para Control is the only formula that can remove yeasts and parasites simultaneously.  Remember, yeasts and parasites are like Siamese twins.  They must be removed simultaneously from your body in order for you to get well.  Yeast-Para Control loosens the toxins in the body, and Cleansing-Balance Tea flushes the toxins.  The two formulas work synergistically together to remove excess yeasts and parasites.

Herbal Cocktail is essential to repair the damaged linings of stomach and intestines (both small and large intestines).  It’s a high protein herbal drink rich in absorbable nutrients and digestive enzymes.  You can mix with Cleansing-Balance Tea or make a delicious herbal smoothie.

Fatigue and mind fog are common symptoms for people with leaky gut syndrome. The Hormonal Regeneration program (Female Vitality or Male Vitality) gives you calm energy and increases mental clarity and productivity.  These products also improve sex drive. 

The combination of the above formulas would help you experience symptom relief to a greater or lesser degree.  How long do you need to stay on the herbal program?  It depends on your health condition, commitment and budget.  I customize the treatment program to suit your individual needs.

3)    Stress management

Stress is part of life.  No one is immune to it.  Daily meditation, affirmations, prayers, and deep emotional releasing technique, are all very helpful to manage stress effectively.   Read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, for details.


4)    Proper hydration

Drink eight to ten cups of liquid per day to ensure smooth elimination of toxins.  Initially this might seem to worsen the symptoms of diarrhea, but eventually the condition will improve.  Besides, chronic diarrhea can cause dehydration, which in turn can cause many other symptoms, such as muscle cramps.  If you are on our Herbal Detoxprogram, you will be instructed to drink at least six cups of Cleansing-Balance Tea, in addition to our herbal smoothies, soups and water.

5)    Low-impact exercise

When you experience chronic fatigue, the last thing you want to do is exercise.  However, it’s important to “force” yourself to do some low-impact exercise such as slow walking in your neighborhood.  You may start from ten minutes and slowly increase based on your body’s strength.  Exercise generates endorphins (the morphine within – a natural pain killer), and it will help reduce arthritis-like aches and pain.  Fresh air and better blood circulation will also improve your overall well-being.

Q.        Is Fibromyalgia Hereditary?

A.        According to the staff at the Mayo clinic, “if one of your parents or siblings has fibromyalgia, chances are you will get it!”  According to my more than 30 years of clinical experience, I have found that fibromyalgia is not hereditary!  As described in previous articles, the probable causes of fibromyalgia are yeast and parasitic infections, poor dietary habits, lack of exercise, dampness, psychological stress, and vitamin L (L for Love) deficiency.

If your mother had yeast and parasitic infections when she was pregnant with you, chances are you would be born with the yeast and parasitic infection symptoms because they can be passed on to you through blood stream and /or birth canal.  Even though this cause is “congenital;” it’s not “hereditary” because of “genes.”

Besides, while growing up, you would knowingly or unknowingly adopt your parents’ lifestyle, including their dietary habits, the way they handle stress and conflicts, the way they express love and affections, their physical activities, etc.  Therefore, my observation is that fibromyalgia is a learned behavior rather than “hereditary.”

Many scientists including the staff at the Mayo clinic are looking for the “genes” that cause fibromyalgia.  Until this day, their conclusion is that the cause of fibromyalgia is “UNKNOWN!”
