Fibromyalgia and Emotional Stress

by Stephanie Carnes

According to the American College of Rheumatology, three to six million Americans have fibromyalgia and ninety percent of the cases of fibromyalgia occur in women. Below is a case study by Kristina Amelong that demonstrates how toxicity in the body can cause pain and emotional problems.

Case: Joyce, age 40, October 2001

Background: Joyce presented herself at the clinic with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel, a spastic bladder, intense carbohydrate cravings, anxiety, depression, a sleep disorder, and severe mood swings. Her bowels were moving only one to three times per week. Her mood and temper were at times extreme.

Sessions and Treatment Recommendations: During each of her weekly sessions, our work together included reviewing her eating habits. Originally, her meals consisted of cereal or toast for breakfast, a sandwich at lunch, meat and vegetables for dinner, and fruit smoothies and bread sticks for snacks. Each time I saw her, we would fine-tune her diet.

In her first colon hydrotherapy session, she removed 20 feet of stored stool in a 40-minute period. The bowel issues were taken care of within 35 days by using the OHC plan. Plus, her long term nutritional habits were refined and brought into sync with her lifestyle needs. She found that raw, grass-fed butter made a tremendous difference in her cravings for carbohydrates as well as in how she felt emotionally. She ate the equivalent of a stick of butter daily. Supplements were used to help her with the other problems; magnesium, an antioxidant, raw, organic liver, a probiotic, and cod liver oil.

This first round of treatments got her feeling 50% better. Three months later, after two fasts, she finally regulated her sleep schedule and was able to cry and rage a lot. She now spent 90% of her days with no pain. She has had to maintain a strict diet to keep her symptoms from flaring up. Her anxiety and depression were completely gone, and she found that if she gave herself permission to cry when she felt like it, she quickly moved through any mood swings.

Status (December, 2002): Approximately 90% of her problems are gone as she continues to maintain her new eating habits, to practice emotional release, and to take her supplements!
