Fibromyalgia occurs in about two percent of the population and tends to run in families. Despite the family connection, it is often debunked by the medical profession.
But studies show that it is not all in the head. There seems to be a connection between the poor transport of magnesium from the cells to the muscles. There is also conclusive evidence that selenium levels are low in fibromyalgia patients.
Selenium keeps the thyroid in order, and fibromyalgia patients usually suffer from a low thyroid. Vitamin D also runs low. There is plenty of evidence to show that fibromyalgia patients should take vitamins and minerals as part of an alternative therapy to help manage their condition.
