In brief: Fibro foods

This is mostly a trial and error but foods high in omega threes like fish help with pain.
Stay away from junk foods, and additives. Keep a diary and see what works and what does not work. This is the best way to tell. Remember to get exercise, rest and if you are depressed, get in and get this treated.

In brief: Overhyped

Green tea is the latest in a long line of overhyped nutritional products.
Claims include weight loss, better health, longer life, better endurance. Do not believe the hype. Yes green tea contains some anti-oxidants and phytonutrients, but it still contains caffiene which is a stimulant and has duiretic properties. Too much green tea is not good for you.

In brief: Detoxify

We do not really know what causes this condition.
A lot of toxins in the environment can give you muscle pain and chronic pain including fibromyalgia. Try detoxifying yourself with chlorella and glutathione, to name a few. Antioxidants may be of benefit. Avoid artificial sweeteners. Green tea is an antioxidant but results may be varied with fibromyalgia.
