Life with fibromyalgia is full of ups and downs and just getting up each morning requires a lot of strength. While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, there are lifestyle changes, as well as treatments that can help manage fibromyalgia pain and other symptoms, while living your life to the fullest. No need to look further – here’s how to take back control of your life and accomplish the goal of symptom relief with the help of Immuno-Care.
What Is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia, also called fibromyalgia syndrome, might be the most common disease you’ve never heard of – it affects more than 10 million people in the US and more than 500,000 Canadians. Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain and mental distress accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory, and mood issues, caused by the immune system being chronically overactive.
What causes fibromyalgia?
The cause appears to involve genetic disposition, complemented by a trigger, or a set of triggers, like infection, trauma, and stress. Researchers believe that repeated nerve stimulation causes the brain and spinal cord of people living with fibromyalgia to change, causing an abnormal increase in levels of certain chemicals that signal pain. Even though the direct cause of fibromyalgia is not fully known, it can be effectively treated. Medications, supplements, and lifestyle changes can help manage fibromyalgia symptoms and improve the overall quality of life.
Treating Fibromyalgia with Immuno-Care
Although there’s currently no cure for fibromyalgia, there are ways to help relieve some of the symptoms and make this condition easier to live with, such as taking Immuno-Care supplements.
How does Immuno-Care® help manage fibromyalgia?
Immuno-Care by Celt Naturals is a patented and clinically tested all-natural, plant-based supplement designed to regulate the immune system while helping with a wide range of health issues – fibromyalgia being one of them.
Fibromyalgia Symptom Relief Benefits of Immuno-Care
One of the numerous benefits of Immuno-care is its ability to help manage and treat fibromyalgia symptoms. Here’s how:
Rich in plant sterols
One of the main fibromyalgia culprits is a proinflammatory cytokine, Interleukin-6 (IL-6), believed to be involved in the overactivity of the immune system in people with fibromyalgia. Plant sterols have been shown to decrease IL-6 by approximately 25%, during a pilot study conducted by Human Nutraceutical Research Unit, on Celt Naturals Immuno-Care.
Reduces free radicals
It has also been theorized that fibromyalgia is partially due to an increase in free radicals, with fewer antioxidants and more oxidative damage being measured in people with this disease. Immuno-Care® contains an important antioxidant in the form of grape seed extract, enhanced with phytosome technology for much greater absorption, which is capable of reducing free radicals that contribute to the development of muscle pain and fatigue disorders.[2, 3]
Rich in nutrients
Recently, it has been proposed that an imbalance of nutritive components in the diet might play a critical role in the development of fibromyalgia. Immuno-Care offers all the daily nutritional support your immune system needs to successfully stand up to this disease.
