Delayed Pattern Food Allergy
There are some doctors and scientists who believe that Fibromyalgia and/or ME/CFS may be caused by a delayed pattern food allergy. Delayed pattern food allergies are thought to develop over a long period of time, possibly years. There are several theories about how these allergies develop and what causes them (see links below for details). The symptoms are very similar to Fibromyalgia and include fatigue, weakness, headaches, chronic unexplained pain, etc.
Pesticides, Preservatives & Synthetic Hormones in Our Food Supply
One hypothesis is that, due to to all the chemicals in our food supply, such as, pesticides, preservatives and synthetic hormones, our immune systems have become "confused" (for lack of a better word) and don't know exactly how to treat this bombardment of chemicals. The immune system goes into over-drive, attacking things it shouldn't be, causing an auto-immune response and manifesting with Fibromyalgia-like symptoms.
Alpha Nutrition Program for Aching & Fatigue
I bought Dr. Stephen J. Gislason's book "Alpha Nutrition" and followed his diet for "Aching and Fatigue". It makes a lot of sense to me but unfortunately I was never able to complete the diet due to depression and lack of motivation and will-power. I've included the link below to his site which explains his theories and diet programs in more detail.
