Therapies and Treatments for fibromyalgia may include medication, supplements and self-care strategies.
No one treatment works for all symptoms, but trying a variety of treatment strategies can have a cumulative effect.
Hypnosis is emerging as one of the best alternative therapies in alleviating the pain of fibromyalgia. Many doctors are now recommending hypnosis as a viable treatment in the management of pain. A recent study carried out at the University of Iowa studied what happens to the brain during hypnosis. Researchers monitored chronic sufferers of fibromyalgia in a hypnotic trance. It showed that there was reduced activity in the pain network area of the brain particularly in the area of the brain responsible for ‘feeling’ pain. It would suggest that using hypnosis as a treatment actually has a physical effect on the brain.
Hypnotherapy has proven to have a positive impact on people dealing with Fibromyalgia.
Mind-body treatments for fibromyalgia are a common option, especially since drug therapy is rarely 100% effective at controlling symptoms and many people with this condition don't tolerate drugs well. A lot of different mind-body approaches are available.
Hypnotherapy and guided imagery
Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT)
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
Tai Chi and yoga
All the above have shown promise in providing better outcomes in parameters such as pain, fatigue, and sleep.
RTT combines Hypnotherapy, CBT, Guided Imagery and Psychotherapy. This integrated approach makes way for a powerful and potentially conclusive therapeutic approach.
