Fibromyalgia

  • Hanerdos in 1991, eight sessions of hypnotism produced positive results.

  • MindBody medicine is used to treat fibromyalgia. In Nashua, New Hampshire, the Matthew Thornton Health Plan has a very successful behavioral medicine pain program for patients with fibromyalgia.

  • Acupuncture is used in the treatment of fibromyalgia. Dr. David J. Ramsay told the NIH in 1997 that acupuncture data was as strong as that supporting accepted Western medical therapies.

  • Homeopathy can be effective in treating fibromyalgia. A 1989 study by Dr. Peter Fisher indicated that 25 percent more of the homeopathically treated fibromyalgia patients experienced pain relief than those receiving a placebo. Almost twice as many had improved sleep.

  • Spinal manipulation may be helpful for fibromyalgia. A small body of published clinical evidence now suggests that spinal manipulation may be helpful for some patients.
