Coping with Fibromyalgia

Recent research paper related to fibromyalgia says:

Fibromyalgia (FM) is a syndrome characterized by widespread chronic pain. Its aetiology is still poorly understood, and there are no haematochemical or instrumental tests on which to base a diagnosis. Recent studies suggest that its pathogenesis may involve cytokines, in particular, chemokines – cytokines that regulate cell traffic under both physiological and pathological conditions. The aim of this study was to determine possible differences in the profile of systemic concentrations of chemokines between FM patients and healthy women (HW; controls).

Natural Remedy Blog

Welcome to the Natural Remedy Blog.

The Natural Remedy Site has been ‘around’ for a few years now but the site had grown a bit ‘tired and neglected’ so with the help of evolving intelligence webdesign we have had a facelift 😉

With any luck one of us will post here on the blog regularly! We will let you know when new articles have been included and remember that if there is anything YOU are looking for a natural remedy for you can always contact us and we will either send you what information we have — or undertake a search to find the information you require.

We happen to believe that ‘Nature’ usually holds the answer to whatever ails us.. After all how ‘odd’ would this world be if the ‘creatures’ that evolved on it could not also find the solutions to their problems occurring naturally within the fabric of the planet.

We don’t dismiss the fact that so-called modern-medicine also ‘evolved’ with good intent to try and create a more ‘regularized’ and ‘consistent’ supply of some of the natural substances that had been found to salve, alleviate and cure ills. But who can deny that today’s ‘medicinal products manufacturers’ are billion dollar businesses that have a focus firmly on profit rather than human well-being?

Today the sole purpose of pharmaceutical products — and the main focus of their laboratories — id in the development of products that ameliorate and soothe symptoms — BUT do not generally CURE the underlying cause! After all why kill the goose that lays the golden eggs? This ‘watershed’ for medicine has been brought about by the fact that pharmaceutical products are produce by ‘commercial enterprises’ and their objective is naturally ‘profit’ and not an altruistic goal of simply trying to cure all ills and save mankind!

The Natural Remedy Site seeks to provide some balance by publishing articles about natural remedies — oftentimes natural treatments with a great and lengthy heritage — and also provide links to resources that outline how to treat, and cure many common and troublesome health issues using tried and tested ‘good old fashioned’ natural remedy approaches. Yes we may make a small increment from providing access to some of the products we mention — but never at a detriment of cost to YOU — and remember that most products cost a fraction of what recurring pharmacy prescriptions will cost you!!!
