Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment for Fibromyalgia (Fibrositis)

Fibromyalgia, also known as fibrositis, is a medical condition in which the affected individual usually complains of multiple tender points all over the body. This condition is usually seen in females in the age of 35 to 55. Fibromyalgia is usually not associated with inflammation, but is usually more related to an increased awareness of pain in multiple sites. Affected female individuals usually complain of pain, weakness, giddiness and loss of appetite. Treatment is usually done with pain killers, psychotherapy and reassurance.

The Ayurvedic treatment for fibromyalgia consists of treating the pain, reducing the susceptibility to pain, as well as increasing the confidence and vitality of the affected individuals. Herbal medicines are given which can safely reduce the pain and control different symptoms of anxiety, giddiness, loss of appetite etc. Local application of medicated oils reduces the susceptibility to pain and increases the strength and vitality of the skin, subcutaneous tissue and muscles. Fomentation can also be utilised after the application of the oils. In addition, Ayurvedic medicines are given to treat depression and improve the flow of positive thoughts within the affected individuals.

Treatment for fibromyalgia usually needs to be given for about 2-3 months in order to bring about noticeable results for affected individuals. Counselling and reassurance can also be given to such people. Most affected females should be advised to keep themselves busy and to have a positive outlook towards life. A judicious combination of psychotherapy and Ayurvedic medication can thus help successfully and effectively to treat patients having fibromyalgia.
