Fibromyalgia and CFS Support
Clinical Herbalist Reviewed on June 30, 2011 by Paulina Nelega, RH
Many individuals, particularly women, suffer from fibromyalgia (FM) or chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), or even a combination of both, together. There may be painful muscle spasms, including exquisitely tender ‘trigger points’ distributed throughout muscles of the body, overwhelming fatigue, inflammation, headaches, depression and insomnia.
FibroLo Gold™ is a natural herbal supplement that may help improve many of the symptoms of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, including inflammation, muscle spasms, sore joints, and headaches. Its primary ingredient is Devil’s Claw, a herb used traditionally for centuries for relieving pain and inflammation associated with arthritis. It is also excellent for supporting digestion. Devil’s Claw contains anti-inflammatory ‘harpagosides’ which may offer relief for muscle spasms, inflammation, and joint pain associated with FM/CFS.
Additional herbs in FibroLo Gold™ include St. John’s wort, Skullcap, and Pulsatilla. These herbs have been long-used to relieve headaches, neuralgia (nerve pain), and to strengthen and support the nervous system, overall. Ginger is also included in FibroLo Gold™ for its excellent circulatory support, which helps ensure delivery of vital nutrients throughout the body.
FibroLo Gold™ may help:
• Encourage muscle relaxation
• Promote circulation
• Soothe muscle aches and pain
• Promote a gentle relaxation of the entire body
• Support a restful, deeper sleep
With inflammation and pain decreased, you’ll be able to sleep better, be less fatigued, and have more energy. These, in turn, may help improve one’s sense of overall wellbeing and mental outlook.
