Oh my poor darlings you’ve been freezing your wits off this winter. I see you keep looking and looking for remedies for the dreaded fibromyalgia which can exacerbate for some during extreme weather conditions.
Consequently, I decided to consolidate all (if I can find it all) the remedies I’ve told you about, and probably forgotten to mention as well in one blog post for you.
Feel better soon.
Wong To Yick Wood Lock Medicated Balm Oil
I might or might not have mentioned this previously but this herbal Chinese oil had been a great help in relieving my painful muscles and feet, not too long ago when my then doctor was fumbling something about steroid injections under the feet followed by surgery. Anyway, I’d come across this oil in a Chinese shop close to where I was living. I’ve since moved but I found it online. Shipping costs will make you delirious so see if you can find it in your local Chinese shop first. I’m not into the free advertising but Grandmum recently reminded me of how it helped her very severe arthritis so I had to tell you. This one is good.
I’m always telling you about warm Epsom salt baths, as prescribed by my loving grandmother. Soak in the tub for as long as you can. Epsom salts are widely known to help relieve pain muscles along with other symptoms.
I’d been meaning to blog about this for some time and never got around to it. But this flavourful, warm spice known mostly in curries, is also marvellous for a host of other things, including relieving painful joints and muscles, internal cleansing and treating acne. I ordered some turmeric root online, grated it, froze it and as need be, I bring about a tablespoon of it to boil and drink the tea. I add a spoon of sugar and coffee mate (as I dont drink milk). It’s quite a pleasant taste. Please, not too often if you also suffer from acid reflux like most of us fibromites do.
This might seem like an impossibility but there’re lots of helpful tips online. I like to say there is always a way.
Laughter, sharing and giving
Ok, I’m getting exhausted now. Won’t you please just visit the Meds and Remedies section? thank you darling.
