Nutritional deficiency was for so many alternative doctors, in the past, the most reliable method for restoring normal metabolic function to patients. Disease is sadly much more complex in today’s modern environmentally toxic time. The issues leading to Fibromyalgia are much more complex, but restoration of normal nutrient values is essential to recover full function. The conditions described in prior articles such as candida, food allergies, and toxicities, lead to increased oxidation requiring more than the normal amount of free radical fighters. More strain from active disease processes requires more nutrients. Also candida and other food allergies create an environment leading to malabsorption. Nutrient absorption across the intestinal barrier is impeded with inflammation, absence of friendly bacteria, and overgrowth of candida yeast. In our office, we have proven this idea very quickly as we administer vitamin and mineral rich IV therapy with benefit in energy just after 2-3 IV sessions. The IV therapies have a chance to be absorbed nearly 100% due to lack of having to be first absorbed through the intestinal wall. The nutrient rich IV solution is immediately found head to toe circulating through the blood stream. Increased energy leads to the body’s ability to recover from stress and free radical damage, resulting in decreased pain. Of course vitamin and mineral are also required as co-factors in production of energy and building and maintaining activity of white blood cells. We cannot live without these micronutrients, and certainly, we are unable to recover from normal stressors of the day when we are nutrient deprived.
