I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and suffer from extreme muscle tension and spasms. What types of natural remedies can I use to relieve the pain and help relax the muscles to allow massage therapy to work faster?
Some of the best natural treatments for fibromyalgia are the following:
- 5-hydroxytryptophan 100 — 400mg a day before bed for improvement in sleep.
- Licorice extract to stimulate adrenal function and natural cortisol levels.
- L-carnitine — 1500 mg a day for pain, soreness, weakness of muscles.
- Panax ginseng to improve muscle endurance.
To relax your muscles naturally, consider calcium, magnesium, black cohosh, kava and valerian.
