Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition of widespread body pain and fatigue. This disease is characterized by tenderness in the muscle tissues, tendons and joints.
Fibromyalgia according to Biodescodification — Emotional Conflicts
According to Biodescodification, the causes of fibromyalgia can be found in a slowing of the autonomic nervous system – the involuntary system that controls many bodily functions such as digestion, breathing and the circulatory system – due to emotional or physical trauma.
Studies have shown that fibromyalgia patients often have personal histories filled with stressful, traumatic, or neglectful situations.
Once the body stores these types of experiences, a process called “cellular memory” occurs, meaning that the brain remembers those moments as if they were happening right now.
These cellular memories are responsible for activating the autonomic nervous system, thus unbalancing all the internal processes of the body causing chronic body pain and fatigue.
Fibromyalgia from the pharmacological point of view is not enough to bring the patient long-term improvement. The Biodescodificación has been demonstrated to be a very effective treatment to approach this pathology since it looks for identifying the underlying emotional causes to be able to heal them.
Fibromyalgia is a disease of the soul
Fibromyalgia is an invisible, chronic disease that affects millions of people worldwide.
Although there is no cure, scientific advances have led to a better understanding of this complex condition. Symptoms include widespread musculoskeletal pain, extreme fatigue, sleep problems and irritability.
These symptoms can be very disabling for those who experience them. Experts classify fibromyalgia as a functional disorder, as there is no visible structural or biochemical abnormality in the body tissues of those suffering from the disease.
Researchers also believe it is related to central sensitization, meaning that the brain interprets pain and other sensory stimuli even when no external signals are present.
Even though the exact cause of fibromyalgia is still unknown, there is evidence that certain genetic and environmental factors contribute to its development.
Recent studies also suggest that factors such as emotional stress and sleep problems may trigger or exacerbate symptoms associated with the disease.
Treatments are available to alleviate the symptoms associated with fibromyalgia. These include physical and occupational therapies, prescription medications to manage chronic pain and even cognitive-behavioral therapies to help manage the emotional stress associated with the condition.
Education about healthy lifestyles is also important to help people manage their daily symptoms and stay physically and mentally active.
Ultimately, it is crucial to remember that fibromyalgia is more than a physical disorder; it is a disease of the soul as well. A better understanding of how our minds work will take us much further toward finding effective ways to manage our common chronic conditions like this one.
The symptoms of fibromyalgia are varied and can vary in intensity. They include:
- Widespread pain
- Chronic fatigue
- Headaches and muscle aches
- Sleep problems
- Sensitivity to extreme heat or cold
- Numbness or tingling in the hands and feet
- Gastrointestinal problems and trouble concentrating or remembering.
Pain intensity varies over time; some patients experience sudden spikes of severe pain that go away within a couple of hours. People with fibromyalgia may also feel anxious and irritable.
Many patients with fibromyalgia do not receive a correct diagnosis because the symptoms are similar to those of many other medical conditions.
Confirming a correct diagnosis requires a complete physical examination by a qualified medical professional and additional tests such as blood tests to rule out other underlying disorders.
Treatment of fibromyalgia consists primarily of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to control the associated pain; however, there are other common treatments such as regular exercise, physical therapy, or therapeutic massage.
There are also common alternative therapies used by some fibromyalgia patients including acupuncture and yoga.
Fibromyalgia emotional conflicts
Emotional stress or trauma can trigger or aggravate fibromyalgia symptoms. Fibromyalgia patients have an increased sensitivity to environmental factors such as loud noise, strong odors and even seasonal changes.
A recent study conducted by Dutch researchers found evidence of a link between childhood and adult traumatic experiences and the later development of fibromyalgia in older adults.
Another study by Brazilian researchers found that those with higher levels of anxiety and anger were more likely to develop fibromyalgia symptoms compared to those without such elevated emotional levels.
This evidence suggests that there is a link between the body’s negative emotional responses and the subsequent presence of chronic pain associated with fibromyalgia.
For many fibromyalgia patients, detecting their underlying emotional conflicts can be an important step in managing their physical symptoms.
Professional help should be sought to learn techniques to manage stress and improve their overall quality of life.
Other patients may need medication to reduce their chronic pain levels before treating their underlying emotional conflicts because of the significant impact of pain on their daily quality of life.
Whatever the case may be, it is important to seek appropriate help to address both conditions either individually or simultaneously to achieve the best possible outcomes to improve your overall long-term well-being.
