In the Fibromyalgia and food -Can functional nutrition help part I, I’ve explained already what fibromyalgia is and what causes it. We have explored the fact that Fibromyalgia is considered a syndrome affecting numerous disorders such as: generalized pain, tiredness and fatigue, changes in sleep quality and depression.
Basically, fibromyalgia involves pain- a lot of pain, involves chronic pain at specific points of the body and today it is possible to relate several possible causes such as: chronic Inflammation, candidiasis and fungal Syndrome, sleepless nights, inadequate diet, and sedentary lifestyle.
It also involves the emotional aspects (how you think), feelings and emotions. In this article “What Is Fibromyalgia And What Causes -can functional nutrition help?” I’ll discuss the diet recommendations and foods to avoid according to functional nutrition.
When treating fibromyalgia, fundamental metabolic aspects must be considered (i.e. the existence of resistance to thyroid hormone, mitochondrial issue, oxidative stress, bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine (also known as dysbiosis), sensitivity to non-celiac gluten and deficiency in vitamin D, vitamin B 12, anaemia, subclinical hypothyroidism among others.
Treatment with functional nutrition includes the following recommendations:
In relation to supplements the following can be tested: carnitine, coenzyme Q10, chlorella, D-ribose, SAMe, melatonin but of course, everything will depend on the set of signs, symptoms and the metabolism that is specific to the individual which varies from person to person.

People who suffer with fibromyalgia need to have an adequate and nutritional diet, removing what is bad to the individual. For example, if an individual has problems with milk, gluten or sugar and continues consuming milk, they will remain inflamed, if they have a problem with gluten and continue consuming it then they will remain inflamed.
More and more, people have food intolerances and food allergies (Nutrigenetic tests can help you identify this), many people suffer from mitochondrial dysfunction, with hormonal imbalances, neurotransmitter imbalances.
Therefore, the treatment of fibromyalgia needs to include an anti-inflammatory diet, specific nutrients to help the mitochondria function better, to help the glands to produce their hormones properly and to combat oxidative stress.
