Married to Fibro : An Intimate Journey Living with and Loving Those with Fibromyalgia by Tina Marie Birkhoff.

There is hope. We are the support systems for loved ones suffering from Fibromyalgia. I have lived with Fibromyalgia in my house for almost two decades. Several of my friends have fibro and look for support within their friends or family circles. I’ve seen the frustration, sadness, loss of hope and despair that affects the sufferer, the spouse, and the rest of the family. My article published in Fibromyalgia Life and Chronic Pain Magazine; Issue 5 “In My Shoes” was the beginning of my awareness of the need for support. We, the family and friends, are a silent group hurting on the inside with little direction

Married to Fibro is that direction, the support group for help. Over 5 million people have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in the United States alone. Ten per cent of those diagnosed with fibro are men. That means ninety per cent of the sufferers out there are moms, wives, daughters, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, and girlfriends with Fibromyalgia and chronic pain. Through my experiences and successes, Married to Fibro is a book of learning, education and hope. I am proof! Today is the day you and your loved ones start living a new life after the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. Dive into my life, my findings and my newfound hope. As you learn more about the disorder and find that there is support, you will become a better, stronger, more joyful you in the light of supporting someone living with Fibromyalgia, from £9.63

Electromagnetic therapy is a non-invasive form of functional medicine that can be used to treat everything from depression and Parkinson’s to chronic pain and migraines. Several different types of electromagnetic therapy can be prescribed depending on your health concerns.

Magnetic field therapy was applied to promote bone healing, treat osteoarthritis and inflammatory diseases of the musculoskeletal system, alleviate pain, and much more. When used alone, the theraoy seems to have a good effect in reducing the pain intensity in low back patients, independently of the low-back pain condition.

How does electromagnetic pain relief work?

The magnetic fields help you to increase electrolytes and ions. This naturally influences electrical changes on a cellular level and influences cellular metabolism. Relief from pain is a major application for PEMF, which acts in two ways. First it stimulates the production of endorphins, giving pain relief, and second it temporarily helps to interrupt the pain signal, using microcurrents that run through the neural pathways.

Pulsed PEMF therapy sends magnetic energy into the body. These energy waves work with your body’s natural magnetic field to improve healing. The magnetic fields help you to increase electrolytes and ions. This naturally influences electrical changes on a cellular level and influences cellular metabolism. It works with your body’s own recovery processes to help relieve chronic pain. Best of all, it’s entirely safe.

What happens when you have an electromagnatic and other magnetic treatments?

Static magnetic field therapy: In this, you touch a magnet to your skin somehow. You might wear a magnetic bracelet or other magnetized jewelry. It could be a bandage with a magnet in it, or you may wear a magnet as a shoe insole. You could also sleep on a special mattress pad with a magnet in it.

Electrically charged magnetic therapy (electromagnetic therapy): The magnets you use here have an electric charge. Treatment with electromagnetic therapy usually comes through an electric pulse.

Magnetic therapy with acupuncture: Magnets go on the same sections of your skin that an acupuncturist would probably focus on in an acupuncture session. You may hear these areas called your energy pathways or channels.

Scientists have specifically studied its use for:
