Ayurvedic Approaches for Natural Fibromyalgia Treatment

 

Chronic muscle pain accompanied by lack of sleep and a consequent feeling of constant tiredness is often a sign of stress. However, it may be indicative of another lesser-known condition – fibromyalgia.

 

This syndrome affects muscles and the surrounding soft tissues and can be responsible for the unexplained feeling of muscle pain you experience for no specific reason.

 

Closely related to this is another disorder called chronic fatigue syndrome. Both fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome can be highly debilitating because of the fatigue they cause, and this can interfere with a person’s lifestyle.

 

Common Signs and Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

 

Many people observe that their symptoms peak at particular times of the day, such as early morning and evening. Some of the common symptoms of this condition may include:

 

 

  • Chronic pain in the muscles or muscle spasms
  • Low energy levels and fatigue ranging from moderate to severe
  • Lack of refreshing sleep or insomnia
  • Stiffness after being in a single position for long
  • Chronic generalised aches all over or specific complaints such as headaches or migraine
  • Fogginess of the mind, depression, problems with concentrating on simple mental tasks
  • Sensitivity to noise, bright light, cold weather and strong smells
  • Numbness or a tingling sensation in the legs, hands and face
  • The feeling of swelling in the hands and feet when none exists

 

 

Ayurveda treatment or Management of Fibromyalgia symptoms or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

 

Ayurveda suggests that fibromyalgia symptoms can be considered vata dosha imbalanced symptoms and maybe because of an improper functioning of the nerves (vyan Vata subtype dosha) that carry impulses to and from the muscles. Also, based on many Ayurveda texts, symptoms of this disorder are categorized under Vataja Jwara, which is due to an imbalance in Vata Dosha; when this advances, it begins to affect the deeper tissues and Ojas – the material power in the body that nourishes the higher consciousness, holding together the spirit, mind and body.

 

The nervous system is governed by the Vata dosha, and therefore, an imbalance in this dosha is responsible for fibromyalgia-like symptoms. Therefore, managing this condition in Ayurveda depends on correcting this Vata imbalance by ridding the body of the toxins and impurities that have built up within the tissues.

 

Traditional Herbal Remedies of Vata Jwara for Fibromyalgia symptoms or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome 

 

Ayurveda treatment may include:

 

  1. At first, the body is supported to eliminate the unwanted stubborn byproducts in Panchakarma therapy.
  2. Next, the body is urged towards a state of equilibrium of Doshas by using certain herbs, diet, and lifestyle that alleviate the symptoms.
  3. Formulations made of traditional medicinal plants are used to strengthen Ojas or Immunity.

 

Natural Ayurveda Panchakarma Management for Vata Jwara or Fibromyalgia symptoms

 

Ayurveda Panchakarma therapies such as Abhayanga and Shirodhara combine massage therapy with the medicinal effects of specially formulated oils and have been found beneficial in reducing the painful symptoms of fibromyalgia.

 

 

Shashti Shali Pinda Swedana for Vata Jwara or Fibromyalgia symptoms

 

Some neurological ailments may respond well to this unique form of Ayurveda therapy called Shasti Shali Pinda Swedana. The word “Shasti” refers to the rice made to grow in 60 days, and swedana is a therapy that induces perspiration.

 

Thus, this is a process in which the affected part is treated by applying medicated boluses made by combining rice with different medicinal herbs tied in a cloth bag; when this method is used, it induces perspiration that helps to rid the body of toxins.

 

 

Traditional Herbs to Manage Vata Jwara or Fibromyalgia Symptoms with Natural Remedies

 

Herbs that help to detoxify the body, eliminate vata dosha and remove excess pitta are said to be good for fibromyalgia. Amla fruit (Emblica officinalis) is a classic example of such a herb, and it is a part of ancient formulations such as Chyavanprash and Triphala that may be recommended.

 

  • Amla: It is well known for being one of the richest natural sources of vitamin C; however, it also contains other ingredients – tannins such as gallic acid, ellagic acid, phyllanemblin, and flavonoids.
    Amla has the unique property among Ayurvedic herbs of balancing all three Doshas. Therefore, it has been traditionally considered an important herb in treating debilitating disorders such as f Vata Jwara or Fibromyalgia symptoms. Other herbs that may help with fibromyalgia include turmeric (Curcuma longa), garlic (Allium sativum), guggul (Commiphora mukul) and ginger (Zingiber officinale).
  • Turmeric: Contains curcumin that has been shown to possess anti-inflammatory and antioxidant action, and may be used as a remedy against the pain and fatigue of fibromyalgia.
     
  • Garlic: It may help to detoxify the body from the toxins that have accumulated and led to the symptoms of this condition. Besides, it also helps to strengthen the immune system and, therefore, has rejuvenating properties.
     
  • Guggul and Ginger: Contain volatile oil made up of phytoconstituents with marked anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.

 

 

Yoga for Vata Jwara or Fibromyalgia symptoms

 

People with this chronic disease must battle a lot of pain and tension in different body parts. Certain yoga asanas (yoga postures) can help to keep the muscles supple and reduce pain and stress.

 

For example, Setu Bandha Sarvangasana (Bridge Pose) helps keep the spine strong and pain-free. Garudasana (Eagle Pose) helps to stretch the muscles in the upper back, and Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose) opens the chest and extends the back. Uttanasana (Standing Forward Bend) helps to keep anxiety in check.

 

 Diets for Vata Jwara or Fibromyalgia symptoms

 

In Ayurveda, our food is important in maintaining the balance of the 3 Doshas. Therefore, when managing fibromyalgia symptoms, the Ayurvedic practitioner also advises about the types of food to be eaten and those to be avoided. Here are a few guidelines about what to eat during fibromyalgia:

 

 

  • Beetroot, cucumber and carrot juice
  • Vegetable soup
  • Spices such as ginger, coriander, cumin and asafetida
  • Coconut milk and coconut water
  • Green salads with salt and lemon juice dressing

 

Foods to be avoided in chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia include:

  • Fried, spicy and hot foods
  • Vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, okra, spinach and potato
  • Yoghurt
  • Excess beverages such as coffee, tea and alcohol

 

Ayurveda Lifestyle for Vata Jwara or Fibromyalgia symptoms

 

The symptoms of fibromyalgia get aggravated at times when people are under stress. Therefore, learning to remain calm is important to treat this condition. Avoiding mental tension and setting up a regular sleeping pattern without sleeping during the day are important measures to help recover from fibromyalgia better.

 

Practices such as pranayama, yoga and meditation can help deal with fibromyalgia symptoms. These practices also help to calm the mind, relieve anxiety and prevent mental fatigue.

 

While this is a general explanation of fibromyalgia and its treatment as per Ayurvedic concepts, the fact remains that Ayurveda provides a treatment method tailored to an individual’s specific constitution.

 

Depending on the specific symptoms of fibromyalgia that you experience and your body type, an Ayurveda doctor will be able to get an idea of the Ayurvedic imbalance of your problem. Using this information, he or she will design a therapy protocol that is tailor-made to suit your particular constitution and aim to help you get relief from the pain and discomfort of fibromyalgia.

  • Three weeks after my first visit with Gurnam, I started noticing big differences in the symptoms that I was experiencing as a result of hormonal imbalance, anxiety & stress, sleeplessness, hair loss, diabetes and weight issues. The most noticeable change were my hot flushes. My constant hot flushes (approx every 20-30 minutes) were debilitating and driving me to the point where I was just not going out. I was constantly hot and not sleeping week at all. Within 3 weeks this changed to about 2 during the day and just general warmth overnight, which meant I was sleeping better and not having to get up and cool my face and wash my body before returning to bed. My anxiety levels have been reduced significantly, even though I have still been faced with stressful situations and the hair fall much less. The herbal tea that I make each morning and drink through the day keeps me full and is neutral tasting unlike other ‘tonics’ Ive tried before. I look forward to seeing Gurnam monthly to get my mix of Herbal treatments and feeling better with each visit. Thank you Gurnam 🙌🏽

  • I was suffering from headaches for the past 5-6 years which lasted more than a day. Sometimes it was so severe that I had nausea and vomiting. Tried a lot of medications but they did not help. Then I thought of trying Ayurveda as my last remedy. 2 months with Gurnam Saini and I have no headaches. My sleep has also improved. I’m still continuing to improve my overall health as the medicine seems to work for me. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to improve their overall health and well being.

  • My experience with herbal Ayurveda was positive. I found a tremendous amount of healing with this therapy after suffering from bronchitis and arthritic pain for years. The herbal massage was the best thing I ever did. I stopped my medication, the bronchitis healed and my arthritis improved remarkably. I highly recommend it and I look forward to more treatments.


    Dora Tsividis

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • Can't recommend highly enough. After 18 months of working with other health professionals (including doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors and osteopaths), I was finally able to heal my body with simple dietary and lifestyle changes recommended by Dr Saini. Ayurvedic approach tackles not only physical health but also emotional and spiritual, and the herbs and treatments are also tailored to your particular dosha (body type). After working with Dr Saini for a few months I did the Panchkarma cleanse, which I was very skeptical about, but I was amazed that this fixed my gut problems. The treatments during Panchkarma were actually quite amazing - Pooja is a miracle worker and so lovely. Dr Saini's knowledge and client base is very highly regarded in the industry, with other well-known Ayurvedic resorts using this clinic when in Melbourne. Highly recommend.

  • After struggling for years with energy levels, food intolerances and sleep issues with our daughter, we tried Dr Saini. The results for her have been outstanding. Her food intolerances (she was on a strict FODMAP diet) have all but disappeared. Her sleep is consistent and better. Her ability to regulate herself across an entire day (without falling into a heap) has improved her life quality 100 fold. His approach is thoughtful and considered. We always feel like he listens to all aspects of her health and adapts his methods to what she needs next. I would highly recommend working with Dr Saini to anyone considering it.

  • This is truly a fantastic cleanse! Dr Saini guides you through every step and you will feel the benefits physically, mentally and emotionally. I’ve done other cleanses but the simplicity and effectiveness of this one is second to none.


    Ray Murphy

  • Meeting Dr, Saini has been a blessing here in Melbourne. I've always believed in holistic health and I was looking for a practitioner who could not only treat some deficiencies but bring my health up to speed. Dr, Saini is an esteemed Doctor with years of experience in holistic healing globally. I had been in poor health this year however through Pachkarma and Pure herbal Ayurveda Clinic's treatments, there has been a transformation in my overall health, energy and spirit. Highly recommended if you want to transform your health holistically and want to get out of the rut of medications.
