What Causes ME/CFS & Fibromyalgia?
Ever since I got sick two years ago and my doctor hesitantly diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia, I've spent countless hours reading about causes and treatments for ME/CFS & Fibromyalgia. I've come across some pretty interesting theories. Due to the very ambiguous nature of these diseases, the medical establishment has understandably had a very hard time learning what causes them and as a result, how to treat them. As I wrote on my ME/CFS & Fibromyalgia home page, I've found myself getting hopeful about a cause or treatment several times, only to find out later that I was reading outdated material.
These are some of the different theories on causes for these diseases I've come across. Hopefully it can prevent you from wasting as much time as I did. Of course, it should go without saying, that you should always consult your doctor about any treatments.
This is a work in progress so check back for updates...
DRINK 8 - 10 GLASSES OF WATER A DAY FOR GOOD HEALTH
Is plain water getting you down? It sure was for me. Now I make my own soda water (with a splash of lime) at home. I don't miss lugging heavy water bottles or feeingl guilty about throwing away so much plastic. It's Earth Friendly and so refreshing! I love my Sodastream!
Make fresh seltzer as fizzy as you like it for just 20 cents a liter with a SodaStream soda maker! No more schlepping, storing and recycling cases from the store. You can even make over 25 flavors of soda.
