Fibromyalgia – Alternative Treatment & Therapie

Fibromyalgia or fibromyalgia syndrome is a symptom complex with pain symptoms, the cause of which is yet unknown. The fiber-muscle pain is a chronic and usually incurable illness. It is characterized by widespread pain in varying areas, affecting muscles, joints, with back pain and with an acute sensitivity to pressure. Mostly women are affected, usually between 30 and 60 years of age. The cause is unclear; a disorder of pain processing systems in the central nervous system, resulting in a decreased pain threshold, is assumed.

Typical of fibromyalgia are an acute sensitivity to pressure in the tendon insertions and in the muscles (the so-called tender points), and autonomic disorders such as morning stiffness, general malaise, fatigue and sleep disorders. Common accompanying symptoms include a swelling sensation in hands, feet or in the face, irritable bowel syndrome, a sensitive stomach, headache, dryness or hypersensitivity of the mucous membranes. The trouble worsens with physical strain, but also when resting completely. Stress and cold have a similar effect. A tendency to depression, anxiety, as well as problems interacting with others can be observed in some cases.

Diagnosis is based on clinical findings of the painful tender points: 11 out of 28 must be positive. Organ and tissue damage have not yet been detected. Laboratory tests such as ESR, the testing of rheumatoid factor and antinuclear antibodies are normal. One can occasionally observe an improvement in symptoms in elderly patients. However, chronic disease processes, leading to disability are possible.

At the Center for Hyperthermia in Hanover we recommend the following therapies for the treatment of fibromyalgia syndrome:

Whole Body-Hyperthermia
The healing effect of whole-body hyperthermia for patients with fibromyalgia is that we can very quickly bring the organism to high temperatures (up 40.5 °). This fast and high heating activates not only the immune system, but many degenerate cells are destroyed by the fast floods of heat. In addition to the damage or removal of possible cancer cells, the whole-body hyperthermia activates the immune system significantly without burdening the rest of the body. It triggers an immune cascade that enables the white blood cells to multiply.

The Wega test is performed on patients with fibromyalgia syndrome using a low pulse current device to search for interference fields in the organism by means of electrical stimulation. In addition, the therapists at the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover can assess the energetic condition of a patient, which is extremely helpful for the efficient handling of fibromyalgia syndrome. Based on electro acupuncture, according to Dr. Voll the Wega-test can detect inflammation, organ stress or interference fields in the dental area or recognizes organ correlations and analyses the effects of viruses, bacteria or pollutants.

With bio-resonance testing we analyze substances and their effect on the body of a patient with fibromyalgia syndrome. This is a very fast and completely painless process. In many cases we can identify which substance will lead to ill-health (such as heavy metals, bacteria, viruses, electro smog, dental materials, allergens etc.), which is essential for an efficient treatment of fibromyalgia syndrome. As an essential supplement to other treatments and examinations, the bio-resonance testing can give important diagnostic and therapeutic assistance.

A bio-scan is a bioenergetic diagnostic procedure, used to scan the body’s energy level. A bioscan measures the entire human energy system. It is fast and painless. Through a visual representation of all body organs and systems – right down to the blood cells – , the negative (or burdening) factors can be determined (even with patients with fibromyalgia syndrome). Using a bio-sensor, the bio-scan checks the frequency pattern of all organs and systems; a specialized software helps identify the healthy and the stressed organs.

Neural therapy assumes that chronic ailments are caused by „interference fields“. Each part of the body, and each pathologically altered organ in the body can become an interference field. For the treatment of fibromyalgia syndrome, an anti-inflammatory anesthetic will be injected into the abnormal tissue structure – primarily in the Head zone – which causes relief to the aching body area and therefore also to the corresponding organ.

Thymus injections
In the thymus gland over 40 different factors act together to build and maintain a powerful immune system. With age, the fist-sized thymus behind the breastbone shrivels to the size of a raisin. That is why older people are more susceptible to diseases such as fibromyalgia syndrome but also to infections and to cancer. At the Center for Hyperthermia in Hanover, we can compensate this deficit by treating our patients with thymus hormones (obtained from the glands of young calves). This treatment with active agents from the thymus glands strengthens and regulates the body’s natural defenses and manages immunological responses of the body; it also affects the aging process.

Bach Flower Therapy
The Original Bach Flower Therapy is based on the discovery of the English physician Dr. Edward Bach; he discovered, that the flower concentrates of 38 specially prepared (similar to homeopathy) flower and blossom extracts of wild plants and trees set stimuli on an emotional and decision-making level. Through this, blocked psychic energy can be released and made available to the physical healing processes. The therapists at the Center for Hyperthermia in Hanover use Bach flower remedies to directly treat mental stress and as an adjunctive treatment of acute and chronic diseases, such as fibromyalgia.
