What do you recommend as an altenative treatment for this disease? I do NOT want to take prednisone but can hardly get out of bed and am having trouble driving. I do cleaning for a living and need to be able to work. Thanks for any help

Hi there.  There is no alternative treatment for the disorder, but aromatherapy can help with the muscular stiffness and pain.  I recommend sweet marjoram, basil and black pepper but there could be others that would help you as an individual.  If you can give us a call on Monday we can talk to you about all your symptoms and advise more fully - 01455 251020

So sorry to hear about your problem and the pain you are experiencing.  It may well be worth trying a Bioflow.  I've known people with your complaint saying it has made a fantastic difference.  Bioflow generally improves circulation and as a result reduces pain.  If a Bioflows purchased and after 3 months there is no benefit you just send it back for a 85% refund.

If you would like to chat please give me a call on 01932 221752

With kind regards

Polymyalgia rheumatica can be primary or secondary to another condition so I would find out from your MD what is causing it. It is believed to be caused by inflammation so i would recommend 2 grams of fish oil a day that gives you at 500 mg EPA and 300 mg DHA.  Herbs to reduce inflammation are curcumin, boswelia, and cats claw. Also high dose of vitamin C would be helpful if you can take 3000 mg/day.  Green tea would be worthwhile to include in your program.  I would find out if a food is triggering it by doing and elimination diet or have food allergies tested (IgG and IgE would be best).  If you clean for a living your body may have built up a load of toxic substance that it can't detox from inhaling the cleaner. i would switch to all natural cleaners and take some extra natural substances for your liver including milk thistle, alpha lipoic acid and selenium.  I hope this is helpful.

Detoxification is the process of clearing toxins from the body or neutralizing or transforming them, and clearing excess mucus and congestion, illness and fatigue. Many toxins come from our diet, drug use, additives, heavy metals, and environmental exposure. Poor digestion, colon sluggishness and dysfunction, reduced liver function, and poor elimination through the kidneys, respiratory tract, and skin all add to increased toxicity.

Detoxification involves dietary and lifestyle changes that reduce intake of toxins and improve elimination. Avoiding: refined food, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, and many drugs helps minimize the toxin load. Drinking extra water (filtered) and increasing fibre by including more fruits and vegetables in the diet will healp bring the body back into balance.
