  • "A new medical assessment has been drawn up that will be carried out on disabled people of working age, of whom there are about two million. But, according to Scope, that assessment "doesn't take into consideration all the barriers that disabled people face in daily life"."

  • "Jump start the healing process by eliminating "excitotoxins," or poisons, from the diet. Many chemical food agents and additives lead to neurotoxicity when used in excess, especially when consumed on an empty stomach. Neurotoxicity is an umbrella term which covers nearly every single symptom listed under Fibromyalgia."

  • "Although there is no scientific data to support the use of fenugreek for treating fibromyalgia, the herb’s ability to reduce pain in laboratory animals is intriguing. In particular, fenugreek’s apparent effects on serotonin activity may partially mimic the actions of two medications – Cymbalta and Savella – that have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treating fibromyalgia. These drugs increase serotonin and norepinephrine levels in your central nervous system, which alters your perception of painful stimuli."
