I’m Sinead Dundon, The Tummy Tamer, a Nutritional Therapist. I’d like to support you on your journey to health. Fibromyalgia has many long-term symptoms. These include fatigue, pain throughout the body and difficulty sleeping. In addition, issues can include migraines and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
We ran this event Fight Fatigue and Fibromyalgia to raise awareness. It was held, 25th of February in the Maldron Hotel, Roxboro, Limerick, Ireland. I gave Nutritional therapy advice. I gave ways of coping with healthy, healing foods. Identifying and removing harmful foods which is essential as well as using beneficial foods and herbs. In addition, Michelle Nutritional Therapist from PharmaNord spoke. She gave advice on various supplements. There is for supplement that help with evidence for reducing pain, brain fog and fatigue. These can be key problems.
Fibromyalgia, above all is a problems with muscles. Therefore we have 2 guest experts to give advice. Namely Sheila O’Hanlon is one the keynote speakers. Systematic Kinesiology uses the testing of muscles to find imbalance in the body. It links Chinese energy medicine and the physical body. It gets feedback from the body about the problem and solution needed. It’s is a gentle effective treatment. It helps with pain, headaches, poor posture and past injuries or trauma.
Myofascial Release Therapy
After that we had Jinny Ross a Massage Therapist. She spoke on the benefits of Myofascial Release Therapy. Studies support the beneficial use of Myofascial release for Fibromyalgia. The muscles should slide over each other for ease of movement. Injuries or stiff, painful muscles or trigger points can cause pain. This can be due to stickiness of the fibers of the muscle coating called fascia. Massage therapy, can be useful, however it can be very painful. Myofascial release is much gentler, As well as relaxing tight muscles. It is good for increasing mobility, for improving lymph and blood and circulation.
