  • Topic Info:Fibromyalgia is a chronic musculoskeletal condition that causes muscle pain, fatigue, and tenderness all over your body. According to the National Fibromyalgia Association, three to six percent of the world's population suffers from fibromyalgia. Anyone has a chance of developing fibromyalgia, but 80-90 percent of those experiencing fibromyalgia are women.

    What are some of the symptoms associated with fibromyalgia?

    As with any condition, symptoms vary from person to person; but those who suffer from fibromyalgia say it's like having the flu all the time. These symptoms include chronic fatigue, muscle stiffness, disturbed sleep, and pain throughout the body.

    What is the S.H.I.N.E protocol and how is it helping patients with fibromyalgia?

    The S.H.I.N.E protocol is a five-step holistic approach for restoring and optimizing your energy.

    Sleep: When you have fibromyalgia, getting enough sleep can be difficult since your body can quickly become stiff and achy. However, sleep is extremely crucial, and you should be getting between eight and nine hours a night.

    Hormones: Getting your hormone levels checked and getting on a thyroid medication can help ease a lot of your symptoms. Most patients who are suffering from fibromyalgia also suffer from hormone deficiencies.

    Immunity: As soon as you feel your symptoms come on, it's important to get them treated properly.

    Nutrition: You need to be sure you are getting the right balance of nutrition. Taking a vitamin powder can help you get the right amount of vitamins and minerals.

    Exercise: If you're able to exercise, you should be doing just that. Even walking for 30 minutes a day can help ease symptoms.
