There are many causes for chronic pain. Unfortunately, many of these illnesses and disorders don’t leave any signs other than the symptoms that the sufferer feels. One of these conditions is Fibromyalgia, a disorder that causes near debilitating pain. Unfortunately, treatment for Fibromyalgia isn’t very common, and often focuses more on the symptoms than the cause. That’s not for lack of trying, but due to the fact that no one is really sure what causes Fibromyalgia.
What is Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is a disorder that is characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain. It’s often accompanied by fatigue, memory and mood issues.
The symptoms of fibromyalgia are widespread pain and tenderness to light touch, and usually moderate to severe fatigue. People with fibromyalgia may also experience:
- heightened sensitivity of the skin (also called allodynia),
- needles and pins
- prolonged muscle spasms
- weakness in the limbs
- nerve pain
Chronic sleep disturbances are also characteristic of Fibromyalgia, and not just because of pain or discomfort. A sleep disorder known as Alpha-Delta sleep is often the cause – as proposed by most studies and research. This is a condition that frequently interrupts your deep sleep state by bursts of brain activity that simulate being awake. Additionally, deeper sleep stages are dramatically reduced as well.
There are a lot of patients that experience cognitive dysfunction, a.k.a brain fog, that suffer from:
- impaired concentration and short-term memory consolidation
- impaired speed and performance
- inability to multitask
- cognitive overload
Experts suspect that this is directly related to the sleep disturbances experienced by patients who suffer from Fibromyalgia. However, the relationship between the two has yet to be established.
While people with Fibromyalgia commonly have widespread pain, they can experience more localised pain. This pain can be in the back, hips, neck or other areas. Many patients who suffer from Fibromyalgia also experience varying degrees of temporomandibular joint disorder, although patients do not always experience all the symptoms.
How Does Ozone Therapy Help?
Ozone therapy can help relieve the symptoms of Fibromyalgia. It’s not a treatment for Fibromyalgia itself, mainly because the cause is unknown. However, it’s excellent relief for the symptoms.
We introduce ozone via steam. Your skin absorbs it while you rest. You relax in our Ozone Steam Chamber while the Ozone does its work. The ozonated steam immediately gets to work to relieve the symptoms.
Ozone Therapy helps improve circulation by breaking down arterial plaque, and boosts your immune system by stimulating the production of white blood cells. It also helps with cleansing your liver, and immediately starts the healing process for many chronic disorder like Fibromyalgia. Remember, Ozone does not treat the cause! It does serve as a treatment for Fibromyalgia symptoms and pain.
Ozone Therapy can help you in your fight against the signs and symptoms of fibromyalgia. Ozone has the ability to:
- neutralize toxins and impurities in the body
- improve blood circulation
- increase oxygen levels in the muscles
- reduce inflammation
- act as an antioxidant
- energize the mind and body
- significantly reduce pain
If you are currently diagnosed with, or are at risk of Fibromyalgia, Ozone Therapy could be a good fit for you. At Organies Genoeg, we administer Ozone Steam Therapy – a relaxing sauna experience that have many additional positive effects.
