Supplementation of Nigella Sativa, Vitamins C and E Greatly Reduced Pain for Fibromyalgia Patients

My sister suffers with Fibromyalgia and so do others with extreme pain and debilitation.  It is a disease with no cure at this time, but one that has several natural treatments that can help relieve symptoms and give a better quality of life.

Many Fibromyalgia patients are home bound and bed ridden due to the extreme pain and conventional treatments are laden with side effects and more problems.  Some treatments such as moriphine can lead to death.  Moriphine is the number 1 cause of deaths in pharmaceuticals and many celebrities have died from overdose.

You may say, I would not be that stupid.  Well pain make you stupid. Over time the moriphine will work less and less and so patients in desperation will take more, just wanting to stop the pain. The pain is so bad, even death seems better.

According to Natural News, the following will help Fibromyalgia:

Colloidal silver - 2 to 4 ounces daily
Nigella Sativa  - 1 teapsoon with honey 1/2 hour before breakfast and before sleep
Vitamin C - 1000mg daily
niacin and niacinamide
Curcumin and ginger - take as needed to reduce inflammation. 
Magnesium - 250 to 400mg daily
proteolytic/digestive enzyme - 2 to 5 capsules on an empty stomach 2 to 3 times a day

Don't forget to drink plenty of apple juice.  Consume apples and/or apple juice. They contain "malic acid", a substance that appears to ease pain and inflammation. Consume at least 2 apples, or 2 8-ounce glasses of juice daily.

Acupuncture helpful:

 The National Institutes of Health has deemed acupuncture to be an acceptable alternative, or part of a comprehensive treatment program, for several types of pain. Acupuncture is a 2,500 year-old practice, and the Chinese believe it works by affecting the energy pathways called "meridians" that run through the body. The "meridians" are thought to carry "qi" (pronounced chee), an energy force that must be in precise balance for good health. Poor health habits, such as getting too little sleep, eating the wrong foods, etc. cause qi to become unbalanced. Acupuncture rebalances qi by stimulating specific points along these meridians with extremely fine needles.

And lastly Exercise:

 People with fibromyalgia often stop exercising because it is painful. However, inactivity weakens muscles and makes them more sensitive to pain. Low impact aerobics, conditioning exercises, such as swimming, stationary bicycling or stretching, are often helpful for people with fibromyalgia.

Study on Nigella Sativa, Vitamins C and E for Pain Reduction.

Here is a study conducted showing the combination of Nigella Sativa (black cumin), vitamins C and E helped Fibromyalgia patients have less pain and live better.

  • Abstract: Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is characterized by musculoskeletal pain of unknown etiology and is often accompanied by many psychological symptoms. This study is aimed at evaluating the importance of antioxidants (vitamin E, vitamin C and Nigella saliva seeds) therapy in management of this disease. Fifty female patients having mean age of 37.87±1.68 years suffering from FM were enrolled in the study. Role of oxidative stress was determined by measuring antioxidant enzymes including superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GPx). antioxidant capacity by ABTS (2,2'- azinobis-(3-ethylbenzo-thiazoline-6-sulphonic diammonium salt) and ferric reducing antioxidant capacity (FRAP) assay in plasma and catalase in erythrocytes. The FM patients were also supplemented with antioxidants (Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Nigella sativa seeds) for two months to assess the impact on activity of FM with the help of VAS (visual analogue scale) (0 being no pain and 100 being severe pain).It was found that FM patients had low activity of SOD, GPx and low antioxidant capacity (AOC) than healthy controls. It was further observed that after two months supplementation with antioxidants (vitamin C, vitamin E and Nigella sativa seeds) the level of SOD, GPx and AOC increased and their mean VAS 90.30±1.52 at baseline decreased to mean VAS of 77.80±1.65 after supplementation with antioxidants.The antioxidant supplementation for two months resulted in significant improvement in FM patients and it may help in minimizing the effects of the oxidative stress.
