M.E. and Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is associated with wide spread pain, fatigue and stiffness. People with fibromyalgia are found to have multiple tender points on the body, some times as many as 10-11 points are present.

We understand the difficulties faced by the client with fibromyalgia not least the excruciating pain but also the possibility that the symptoms can be dismissed by others, which can cause added stress.

However there is now increasing evidence showing that fibromyalgia patients have a high number of neurotransmitters called substance P, which is found in the spinal fluid. These transmitters apparently allow pain messages to be sent to the brain even when there is no source of pain.

It was also found that serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine were lower than normal. Serotonin plays a part in the regulation of substance P which is why some of the symptoms found in fibromyalgia are very similar to those of depression.

Not only can hypnotherapy help the body increase the levels of serotonin and maintain the correct regulation of substance P, its also helps you deal with the possible stimulates which may have triggered the illness.

We offer a FREE hypnotherapy consultation where we can discuss how you are experiencing life at the moment. An explanation of how the mind works in the depressive state will be given. We will also give you a relaxation track to help with sleep, and to begin the process of getting your life back where you want it to be.
