From locales all around the globe, researchers have found a simple way to cure – yes, cure – fibromyalgia.
These doctors and scientists aren’t connected with each other. Yet, they have all stumbled upon almost identical methods that really work.
First, researchers at the VA center in Gainesville, Florida, published a study. A decade later, doctors from Dijon University Hospital in France discovered a similar method of curing patients with this disabling disease.
The next year, scientists at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland reported almost identical results.
Now, we’re hearing about the exact same cure from researchers at American University in Kenya.
Obviously, these doctors are onto something big.
And if you or someone you love suffers from the agony of fibromyalgia, there’s no reason in the world not to put these findings into action immediately!
Big Pharma is making a king’s ransom selling drugs to fibromyalgia patients. And that’s a condition it once refused to acknowledge until, of course, it realized the riches that could be gained by selling a med to “treat” it.
Unfortunately, those meds also come along with deadly side effects. Take the seizure drug Lyrica, for example.
This heavily advertised med for fibromyalgia can cause life-threatening risks such as “respiratory compromise,” “suicidal thoughts,” and swelling of the throat, head, and neck, as well as blurred vision, “thinking abnormal,” and fluid retention (with those last three said to be “most common.”)
And along with the FDA-approved ones, plenty of heavy-duty drugs are prescribed “off label.”
That’s why the findings that are coming from all corners of the world are so exciting. They don’t involve any meds at all – actually, the point is to eliminate brain-altering food additives, which are as potent as any drug, from your diet.
But that’s probably because they are drugs – drugs disguised as harmless ingredients in soups, gravy, sauces, chips, yogurt, beverages, and on and on and on.
Those additives are called “excitotoxins.” While that name may not be familiar to you, these will be: monosodium glutamate and aspartame (a.k.a. NutraSweet). They can literally “excite” or overstimulate nerve cells, even to the point of killing them off.
But that’s not all that these additives can do. As we’ve told you in the eAlert, they’re also linked to conditions including heart disease, a-fib, migraines, and vision problems — to name a few.
Of course, special diets to help with fibromyalgia are nothing new. You may have tried them all, perhaps going vegetarian or even vegan, sticking to a raw diet or possibly eliminating gluten. And you may have experienced some relief… for a while anyway.
These findings, however, are about a cure. The Florida researchers said that within months of eliminating MSG, fibromyalgia patients had “complete or nearly complete resolution of their symptoms.”
In France, the scientists went so far as to even name their study “Aspartame-induced fibromyalgia.” They wrote that taking aspartame out of the diet of a 50-year-old woman who was diagnosed with fibromyalgia over ten years ago completely stopped her pain – without any “recurrence.”
In Oregon, doctors put fibromyalgia sufferers on special MSG-free diets, and when they started to get some relief, docs “challenged” them with the food additive, finding a “significant return of symptoms.”
Over in Kenya, where many people use a popular local spice mix that contains MSG, simply ditching that seasoning ingredient proved as effective as taking a pain med.
Unfortunately, however, going excitotoxin-free isn’t quite as simple as checking labels for MSG. That’s because the FDA has allowed Big Food to claim that a product has “No MSG,” or “no added MSG” even when it contains a disguised version of this flavor-enhancing additive.
So, if you should find any of the following ingredients on the label of a processed-food product, that’s a tip that it also contains some amount of MSG — and that you should leave it right where you found it!
- anything “hydrolyzed” such as a “hydrolyzed protein,”
- soy protein, including soy protein concentrate and soy protein isolate,
- autolyzed yeast,
- yeast extract, and
- sodium caseinate or calcium caseinate.
And those are just the most common ones. Fact is, the longer a product’s ingredient list is, the likelier it is to contain one or more such additives.
As for aspartame, it is most often found in “sugar-free” or “diet” foods and drinks, although it’s also added to a wide variety of products including gum, candy, cereals, and vitamins – often under the brand name of NutraSweet or Equal.
Of course, when eating out, you’re at the mercy of whatever the chef is adding to his dishes. That’s why it’s best to order simple foods, like broiled fish with butter and lemon or a grilled steak, and to beware of soups, sauces, and highly seasoned items with unknown ingredients.
