What do chronic fatigue, constant pain, brain fog, and no cure have in common?
That’d be fibromyalgia.
Despite the attention in recent years, some people still ask ‘what is fibromyalgia’? If you have it you can probably think of a few descriptive words that’ll work, but clinically it’s a malfunction in how your nerves send pain signals to your brain. There’s more than pain: it’s also feeling too tired to bake cookies and thanks to a haze that settles over you, you’re not able to comprehend the recipe. It’s a club you don’t want to be in, but you understand how malicious this illness feels in a way that many other people can’t.
What might be worse is some people simply don’t believe it’s real. No one knows for sure how you develop it, you’re only diagnosed when everything else is ruled out, and life becomes a twisted game show when it comes to finding the right conventional treatment for you.
Conventional Treatments and Why They Don’t Help With Fibromyalgia Pain Relief
If you have fibromyalgia and have relied on conventional treatments, you know it’s frustrating and often depressing. And, when you count the costs of conventional treatments, you can easily end up paying $10,000 a year trying to manage your fibromyalgia. Some of these treatments probably sound familiar:
Medications like gabapentin and lyrica affect nerves and chemicals related to pain. Unfortunately it’s been hit or miss for both of them as a fibromyalgia medication. Though some patients have moderate success, many often have severe side effects, like the ones below, that force them to stop taking it.
- Ataxia: unsteadiness, lack of coordination
- Cognitive issues: memory loss and/or irritability
- Muscle disruption: weakness, uncontrollable twitching, moving of muscles
- Respiratory issues: congestion, difficulty breathing
Many doctors prescribe medications or suggest over-the-counter choices to cover up pain. The problem for many Fibromyalgia sufferers is that these cease to be effective with time. And, these medicines can be extremely damaging to your organs with long term use. In the case of opioids, they carry a high risk of addiction, and after a while you either have to up the dose or stop taking them.
Many antidepressants have uses beyond depression. With fibromyalgia, antidepressant medicines like Cymbalta (duloxetine) have been approved for fibromyalgia pain relief. While for some patients it has made a difference, many others have had extreme reactions to it. Liver damage, more pain, flu-like symptoms, and even psychosis has been reported along with trips to the emergency room and severe withdrawals.
The Hache Protocol
So, what do you do when conventional treatments have failed? You look for alternatives. And that requires a change in persepctive.
Many times, when people first start exploring holistic and natural treatments for pain and disease, they take an apples-to-apples perspective. That is, they want to take the same approach used by conventional medicine: treating the symptoms in a linear, cause-and-effect manner, and simply replacing the use of surgery and pharmeceuticals with supplements and natural treatments.
Unfortunately, this “magic bullet” approach rarely works, which is why many people believe that natural treatments aren’t as powerful or effective as conventional medicine. And that’s a shame, because when used in proper context, natural treatments can indeed be as effective or even more so than pharmaceuticals, without the nasty side effects.
However, it typically requires a mindset shift to a more holistic perspective—one that considers not just the symptoms and available remedies, but the relationship between these and all aspects of the patient’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health, as well as his or her environment.
In addition, as naturopathic physicians, we look at things on a fundamental level. That is, we look to find and treat disease at its source, rather than just alleviating symptoms. In treating the root cause of a disease, we bring the body and all its systems back into balance. This sets the stage not just for disease resolution, but for achieving a vibrant state of health and physical and mental resilience that few people in our society ever experience.
For people suffering from fibromyalgia and other systemic chronic diseases, switching to a holistic perspective is a game changing experience. But when you have to consider everything going on in your life, where do you even start?
That’s where The Hache Protocol for Pain Resolution™ comes in.
The Protocol Explained
The Hache Protocol™ is revolutionary because it breaks the holistic perspective down into five easy-to-remember elements for achieving fibromyalgia pain relief. They are:
- Stress Reduction: Chronic stress actually damages your brain which creates a lot of issues when it comes to chronic illness. We’ve developed methods and techniques to help reduce stress so that your body and mind can relax and begin healing.
- Nutrition: Our bodies are as unique as we are and there isn’t any one fibromyalgia diet that works for everyone. The protocol creates a personalized diet plan that fits with your lifestyle and also meets all of your body’s needs to promote healing.
- Fitness: Exercise is the last thing on your mind when you’re already in pain, but there are effective exercises that you can do without creating more. We can help you develop a routine for a stronger body.
- Sleep: Even many healthy, pain-free adults don’t get the sleep they need. Toss fibromyalgia in and bedtime can turn into an ordeal. We use natural sleep aids and techniques that help you get a full night of rest so that you feel better in the morning.
- Microcurrent: A non-invasive treatment, microcurrent targets and eliminates pain at the source. When used with the four other elements, you can finally get the fibromyalgia pain relief you deserve.
What Is Microcurrent?
Microcurrent is what sets the Hache Protocol™ apart from other alternative approaches. Similar to a TENS unit, microcurrent devices deliver low-level electrical current to ease pain. But, that’s where the similarities end.
Every tissue in your body has its own frequency that’s disrupted by illness or injury. When that happens, you’re in pain. Unlike TENS, this FDA-approved devices operates at the same frequencies found in the human body. When these frequencies are disrupted, it creates disease conditions. With microcurrent, we can tune into what that frequency should be and gently correct it through the delivery of the appropriate frequencies, thus helping your body heal itself.
Microcurrent isn’t invasive or uncomfortable and is safe for long term use. You can literally lounge and read a book while the microcurrent device stimulates healing in painful tissue.
