I have been writing an article about all the theories of the cause of Fibromyalgia. So far I have found about 8 theories of causes, but one was really interesting. This month I have seen more comments than usual about how severe people's pain is. I wondered if it could be due to weird weather, quick weather changes or barometric pressure, but since my fibro friends live everywhere from New Zealand to Canada, that couldn't be it. Then a few days ago I read about something called "Solar Flares". That is when fireballs are spit off the sun. Solar Flares affect the electricity of everything on earth, including communications, satellites, cell phones, TV, computers, radio, and they affect all EMFs, (Electro-magnetic Forces), and one of the theories I found is that EMFs cause fibromyalgia.
Therefore, if Solar Flares affect all EMFs, and EMFs affect Fibro, then Solar Flares would affect us. So I went to the NASA sites and another space study site to learn more about Solar Flares, and sure enough, 2008 is a VERY active year for Solar Flares. They act up or settle down in cycles, and this year is a very active cycle. I wasn't able to find a month to month reading to find out if the past month has been more active than the first part of the year though, but since the solar flares affect the magnetism and the EMFs on earth, this might be why we are all struggling so much.
One day all I did was study about EMFs and how they affect health. There was no fibromyalgia before microwave ovens, color TVs, cell phones, wireless communication, satellites. There is no way to avoid EMFs on earth. Even those living in the most remote areas of the earth get EMFs from satellites and wireless communication going around the earth, but there are things you can buy that are EMF barriers. Some are a scam, some are not. I am in process of studying those right now. One is like jewelry and you can wear it or put it on the bedside table and it is a protection for 6 feet around it. The way it works is that every object, even solid metal and gems, the atoms vibrate. It can be seen under a microscope. Some gems and metals vibrate at the same tempo as human cells vibrate. Jewelry with that metal and gems would be a barrier against the EMF waves that vibrate at a rate different than the human body. There are also electrical devices that you can plug into any socket in your house, and it changes the EMFs to a different rate of vibration, so that it matches that of the human body. They have scientific data to show how it works, and its effects.
So to all of you who have been suffering for the past month or so more than you have ever suffered before with fibro, I think that is your answer. Blame it on the sun. The good news is, that it is a cycle, and that it will lessen and end until 11 years from now when it will hit its peak again.
Here are the other causes of fibromyalgia that I have found.
- Slow metabolism
- Too many intense stresses over a long period.
- An especially bad accident or illness or trauma from which the patient never fully recovered.
- Environmental toxins and chemical overload.
- Leaky gut syndrome. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leaky_Gut_Syndrome
- Electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs)-- (there was no fibro before microwaves, cell phones, home computers, etc. There was rheumatism that only made muscles hurt, it was not a full "syndrome" like fibro.)
- Nitric oxide dysfunction- http://www.geocities.com/tenthparadigm
- Solar Flares and CMEs (http://hesperia.gsfc.nasa.gov/sftheory/spaceweather.htm)
Do you know of any others that I could add to this list?
