I am looking to take a more natural approach to treating my fibromyalgia.
Dear Terry, “I am looking to take a more natural approach to treating my fibromyalgia. What do you recommend?” — Candy J., Mesa, AZ
Dear Candy, When it comes to addressing pain, I would recommend these four ingredients: highly absorbable curcumin, boswellia, DLPA and nattokinase. Each ingredient works in a slightly different manner to get you comfortable as quickly as possible. I advise taking the four ingredients three times daily.
Vitamin B6 is another nutrient you may want to consider adding to your daily regimen. When looking for a vitamin B6 formula, I strongly recommend choosing one that features vitamin B6 in the form of pyridoxal-5-phospate (P-5-P) in combination with magnesium glycinate. P-5-P is the biologically active form of vitamin B6. Many people (some estimate up to 30% of the population) cannot fully utilize B-vitamins from food and supplements because these forms of B-vitamins must be converted into the active form before they will function. By using the form of vitamin B6 that is identical to the kind your body utilizes, you bypass this problem entirely. In addition to optimizing vitamin B6 metabolism, the magnesium in the glycinate form delivers a good dose of magnesium to help with muscle relaxation and resistance to nerve excitability. I recommend 60 mg of vitamin B6 (as P-5-P) and 200 mg of magnesium (as magnesium glycinate) twice daily.
