For all those involved or interested in fibromyalgia, you know now that it is a disease involving diffuse muscle and joint pain, chronic fatigue, sleep disturbances, minor cognitive disorders and disorders mood of varying intensity and chronic course.
Other pain may be present, associated with irritable bowel syndrome, migraine, premenstrual syndrome in women, myofascial syndrome or temporomandibular joint dysfunction.
This time, we will retain the irritable bowel syndrome or irritable bowel syndrome or irritable bowel syndrome.
His digestive symptoms is related to changes in motility and sensitivity of the intestine as well as psychological factors.
This syndrome causes many changes although the responsibility of a food allergy is sometimes insufficiently reasoned.
This is why a nutritional assessment should be performed. The collaboration of a psychotherapist and / or psychiatrist and a dietician is needed. An accurate assessment, detailed explanations and careful monitoring of the proposed changes allow the rationalization of a balanced diet.
Taking into account various levels of reaction, the food will be removed from the diet during a given period. This action will detoxify the body.
It will also recommend the patient to remove any food similar to prevent cross-reaction effects.
Hippocrates stated “Let your food be your medicine alone! “He had already understood everything.
Many foods that are destroying our intestines and create a devastating failure for fibromyalgia.
It is not the food itself that is in question but its accumulation will cause intolerance, such a powerful poison. In addition to the food, the food industry is responsible for adding additives, which also does not metabolize in the body and cause intolerance.
Food intolerance that weakens our intestines is a delayed hypersensitivity type 4 (chronic allergy). Like a snake, it is pernicious, silent and his reactions are delayed or semi-delayed.
In the book “Fibromyalgia, a comprehensive program to get healthy and reconnect with the well-being” Dr. JP Curtay, one can find a dietary change consulting manna to make everyday a fibromyalgia. The advantage is that there are no side effects unlike medications.
The book is based on scientific studies, albeit unfinished because it is a long process, but where already proposed program groups of patients had positive results with great reduction in pain.
The interest is to decrease saturated fats, sugars with high glycemic index, limit alcohol consumption, avoid unhealthy additives and cooking for, in return, increase the intake of carbohydrates low glycemic index foods rich in omega-3 and good proteins.
Let’s do a quick overview of food to be removed from the plate so that fibromyalgia see their pain to disappear completely or partly. The most foods high in saturated fats are coconut oil, palm oil, butter and duck liver fat. The firings too high degrees should be avoided because although they provide a flavor much like, nutrients are completely disintegrated and no longer any health benefit.
We can not speak of intolerance without mentioning the gluten. Scourge under international center for information, research and study on metabolic disorders and behavior (STELIOR association).
Gluten intolerance has long been recognized as an allergen / major antigen. Recall that gluten is a mixture of proteins combined with starch in the endosperm of most cereals. This was introduced by humans so is not natural and that is why it causes damage to the gut. The latter was not designed to absorb the poison. Gluten is about 80% of the proteins contained in wheat.
Reminder: all grains contain gluten !! The difference is the rate of prolamins will determine whether or not to consume. Prolamin can be good or toxic, hence the varying levels of gluten in grains.
The prolamine is a storage proteins in cereal grains, which has a high content of proline and glutamine amino acids. Cereals that raise little contain little prolamins. (Wikipedia)
Examples of cereals and their rate prolamins:
wheat (wheat), spelled and kamut = 69% alpha gliadin
Barley = 46 to 52% hordein
Rye = 30 to 50% of secalin
Corn = 55 % of zénine
Sorghum = 52% cafirine
Millet = 40% panicine
Oats = 20 to 30% avenin
Teff = 12%
fonio inf = 10%
Rice = 5% orzénine
Buckwheat, Amaranth and Quinoa = very low.
Why do some foods are not tolerated by the body?
For some, nuts, dairy products, onions, mushrooms will trigger their neuropathological pain. For others, it will be gluten, sauces of all kinds, meat and then for others it will be a set of these foods and therefore be very restrictive eating.
Therefore, it is essential to have a healthy diet and be careful of the food combinations.
For this, we must properly associate the food with a varied diet, using good foods where digestion and assimilation are at their peak.
In case of poor digestion (inadequate chewing, high fat meal, enzymatic weakness …) assimilation will be disrupted.
In case of too rapid digestion, the short duration of the passage of food through the small intestine prevent assimilation of all nutrients. From this result deficiencies.
Digestive disorders, fatigue after meals, flatulence, bloating are the result of poor digestion.
Often, these problems are due to poor food association to which we must be careful because if this goes on, these problems dislocate our health.
So for proper assimilation of our body, we must find the perfect adequacy of our biological capacities. Source: abcnaturopathie.com
To affirm the responsibility of food proteins in developing a disease, such as fibromyalgia, three conditions must be met:
1-protein food completely crosses the gastrointestinal mucosa-2 protein reached the diseased organ, the brain and exerts its deleterious effects
3-the eviction of the offending protein brings healing or improvement of disorders.
There are also significant skin reactions in 50 to 80% of fibromyalgia.
As irritation, these reactions may feel uncomfortable wearing clothes. The rash is red and can be raised and bumpy. It can be painful or irritating or finally cause a creepy feeling.
To explain this phenomenon, scientists believe that fibromyalgia induces an immune reaction causing skin sensitivity. The reaction releases histamine and heparin. Histamine is a chemical involved in itching and skin sensitivity and heparin is a substance having the condition to clear the blood and facilitates hematoma.
Redness can also come from medications taken, so be sure to read the dosage.
Fibromyalgia tend to have dry skin, especially in the hands and fingers.
