Fibromyalgia Effective Treatments
Acupuncture is an extremely effective treatment for fibromyalgia. The theory underlying acupuncture treatment plans make it seem as though acupuncture is made for treating fibromyalgia. Chinese Medicine sees each patient’s disease as a unique presentation. The fact that five patients may have a fibromyalgia diagnosis, does not mean that they will have the same Chinese medical diagnosis. In fact, it is highly unlikely that they will all have the same diagnosis. This makes perfect sense in the context of a disease process such as fibromyalgia. There is no set symptom pattern in fibromyalgia, and many patients present with differing symptoms.
That same fact is completely consistent with Chinese Medicine. There are a number of different patterns that fibromyalgia can take from the perspective of Chinese Medicine. The practitioner will determine which pattern or combinations of patterns a patient has and will develop an acupuncture point prescription designed to address the specific pattern. Acupuncture which assumes that each patient presentation is different and thus requires a different treatment approach is perfectly suited to treat fibromyalgia.
Another fibromyalgia effective treatment is the use of herbal remedies. As is the case with acupuncture, this branch of Chinese Medicine is also rooted in the idea that one disease, in this case fibromyalgia, has many causes and presentations. An herbalist will develop a formula to treat the specific presentation of each individual patient. The formula will take into account other conditions the patient may have and will be designed so that it will treat the disease which gives rise to the fibromyalgia symptoms, while at the same time addressing other conditions the patient may have.
