Fibromyalgia is one of the most common types of chronic pain. It affects over 5 million people in the United States alone.

Fibromyalgia was once thought to be a mental disorder.  It was first described by doctors in the early 1800s as “muscular rheumatism.”  In the 1900s the term was changed to “fibrositis” .  In 1976, the name of the condition was changed to “fibromyalgia.”  In 1981, the first scientific study formally confirmed fibromyalgia symptoms were medical conditions.

Fibromyalgia affects both men and women, although the majority of reported cases are women.  Fibromyalgia is also seen in all age groups, including children, teenagers, and the elderly.  Fibromyalgia occurs around the globe, and it affects all ethnic groups and cultures.

The symptoms of fibromyalgia are stiffness, widespread aches and pains especially in extremities, fatigue, and sleeping disorder.

Causes of fibromyalgia have been considered as “unknown” by most health professionals.  Based on my more than three decades of clinical experience working with people from many different ethnic origins and geographic locations, the following is a list of probable causes:

Yeast and parasitic infections

When your body is infected with yeasts and parasites, they suck your energy and also deposit their toxic wastes in your tissues, muscles, and joints.  This in turn, causes inflammation and pain.


A damp environment such as a beach-front apartment or a house in the woods can worsen the symptoms of yeast and parasitic infections.

Lack of exercise

Our brain, tissues, muscles and tendons all need nutrients and oxygen.  Lack of exercise will cause a “delivery problem” for the nutrients and oxygen.  Also, yeasts and parasites love a still environment.  A still environment makes it easier for them to populate.

Psychological stress

Psychological stress, if not managed properly, can weaken your immune system.  When your immunity is weak, all kinds of invaders such yeasts, parasites, bacteria, and viruses can take over and cause many diseases including fibromyalgia.

Deficiency of vitamin L (L for Love)

When you feel “unloved”, or “unapproved”, that’s the time the symptoms of fibromyalgia worsen.

Luckily fibromyalgia is treatable.  I will discuss the holistic, drug-free treatment for fibromyalgia in the next article.  Stay tuned.
