Living with Fibromyalgia is no easy feat. The condition can take a significant toll on your physical, emotional, and mental well-being, with chronic pain being one of the most challenging symptoms to manage. Whether you are dealing with constant muscle aches or severe headaches, the pain can interfere with your daily life, making it difficult to perform even the most basic tasks.
The good news is that you don’t have to suffer alone, and there are ways to manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life. In this blog, we will introduce various natural treatments for Fibromyalgia and focus on the role of Microcurrent Therapy in eliminating Fibromyalgia symptoms.
Natural Remedies for Fibromyalgia
Unfortunately, diagnosing Fibromyalgia can also be a challenge, as the symptoms can be similar to other common autoimmune disorders such as arthritis and lupus, making it difficult for doctors to provide accurate diagnoses. This is why natural remedies for Fibromyalgia are becoming more popular, especially alternative therapies for Fibromyalgia pain that can help manage the pain and improve quality of life.
There are seemingly countless natural remedies that have shown potential to help manage Fibromyalgia pain. These include stress reduction, gentle exercise, microcurrent therapy, and quality sleep, all pillars of The Hache Protocol For Pain Resolution.
Let’s dig a little deeper into some of my favorite alternative therapies for Fibromyalgia pain!

- Biofeedback therapy can help you become more aware of pain triggers and ways to control them by using equipment to monitor brain activity in response to specific events and situations.
- Although the effectiveness of biofeedback therapy for fibromyalgia management is not yet confirmed, many of our patients report it as incredibly helpful.

Nothing is better than a great massage. But did you know massage can actually help those with fibro feel better?
- Massage therapy involves gentle manipulation of the body to relieve pain, promote relaxation, and increase the range of motion.
- A systematic review in 2014 found that five weeks of massage therapy contributed to significant improvements in anxiety, depression, and pain in people with fibromyalgia.
For Pain Free For Life Week, we interviewed one of our favorite practitioners, Registered Massage Therapist Mike Taddeo, about how he elevated his practice with our Avazzia Life Devices and training programs.
Watch the interview:
- Gentle exercise can help improve muscle strength, range of motion, and flexibility in people with fibromyalgia.
- Regular aerobic exercises such as walking, swimming, or cycling are likely to reduce pain, improve lifestyle, and facilitate better physical function in people with fibromyalgia.
- Light strength training and stretching can also help improve muscle strength, range of motion, and flexibility.

Did you know that psychological distress is linked to fibromyalgia, and people who experience high-stress levels may be more likely to develop symptoms associated with this condition?
- Yoga and other gentle exercises, stretching, forest bathing, grounding with microcurrent therapy, journaling, and keeping in touch with loved ones effectively reduce stress and ease fibromyalgia pain.
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) can help manage stress through exercises like writing down worries and helps treat mild to moderate anxiety and depression in people with fibromyalgia.

Microcurrent Therapy for Fibromyalgia Pain
Our favorite alternative treatment for Fibromyalgia pain is Microcurrent Therapy, which harnesses the power of electricity to initiate the healing process. Microcurrent cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) uses electrical currents to alter brain function, and our Avazzia Life Microcurrent Devices are specially designed to deliver this treatment.
Research has shown that Microcurrent CES can help manage Fibromyalgia symptoms effectively. In a study published in the Journal of Clinical Rheumatology in 2001, Fibromyalgia patients who underwent daily CES treatments for three weeks reported a 28% improvement in self-reported tender point scores, a 27% improvement in general pain levels, and a drop in poor sleep from 60% to 5%.
Microcurrent CES is a non-invasive, medication-free treatment option that shows promise in treating various conditions, including chronic pain, inflammation, and nerve damage. It is particularly appealing to those looking for an alternative to traditional medicine.
