7 Effective Home Remedies for Fibromyalgia

Some of the home remedies for fibromyalgia include the use of garlic, ginger tea, carrot, cucumber, beetroot, spices, vegetables, fruits, coconut water, camphor, and arthcare oil in different forms. These are some of the products and foods that can help cure fibromyalgia to a great extent. If proper care is taken, it can even be cured completely. Fibromyalgia is a syndrome where a person experiences extreme pain and fatigue. Some of the symptoms of fibromyalgia are swelling, sleeping disorders, numbness, and headaches.

What is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is usually misunderstood as a disease. However, it is actually a syndrome that leads to body pain, and can also turn into a chronic condition. There are numerous reasons for fibromyalgia pain, which can be either biological, social, or psychological in nature. It is an invisible pain that cannot be seen, only felt. For that reason, no one other than the person suffering can actually understand what the pain is like. There are no outward signs.

Fibromyalgia can be due to improper sleeping patterns, stress, injury, or an excessive draining of energy. Generally, people between the ages of 20-50 experience fibromyalgia. However, it cannot be exactly categorized into any age group. As per the studies, teenagers are also more prone to fibromyalgia than other age groups, possibly due to the excess stress and their unusual lifestyle patterns. Youngsters usually want to be competitive and tend to take on more activities than their body can handle. This desire to achieve can often result in immense body pain, headaches, and fatigue.


Home Remedies for Fibromyalgia

Certain home remedies are explained below. If these remedies are followed properly, they can do wonders for curing and eliminating fibromyalgia completely. They are very effective and have shown impressive results. Basically, try any of these remedies without the fear of experiencing any side effects like you often do from normal medicines and pharmaceuticals.


Consuming ginger helps you get relief from pain and inflammation. The intake can be in the form of ginger tea or you can include ginger in your daily meals as well. One can also mash a piece of ginger, boil it well in water, drink this mixture at least twice a day. You can also add salt to add a bit of taste.


Garlic helps to improve the immune system, so make use of it in your daily meals. This simple solution could help cure fibromyalgia.


Camphor helps in tightening muscles, thus reducing pain. A reduction in pain increases the overall efficiency of our body as well. Many people that suffer from backaches should try this. One can either use it in the form of oil by applying the camphor oil on the muscles or bones to relieve the pain or else the camphor oil can be eaten in other forms like coriander or anything else that is a member of the mint family.

Exercise / Yoga

One should involve themselves in regular exercise or yoga at least 3 times a week. This helps you release mental stress from your mind and makes you more relaxed and stable. It is a must for people suffering from fibromyalgia as it also helps stimulate the movement of bones and muscles in the body that will otherwise become sore.


Green vegetables are a must, as they provide necessary ingredients for the bones and muscles to remain well-maintained, thus making them stronger and healthier. The intake of vegetables like pumpkin should be increased as well. Generally, cabbage, brinjal, potatoes, and spinach should be avoided, if possible. Try and have as much green salad as possible. Be sure to use lemon juice for improving the taste.


Try and increase your intake of liquids made from blended vegetables as well as fresh fruit juices. Liquids help release toxins from your body and clean out the system.

Arthcare Oil

Arthcare oil is an herbal treatment that can be applied to the joints. It helps to relieve joint pain, backaches, and muscular pain. This ointment strengthens bone tissue and penetrates into the body tissues faster. Since it is anti-inflammatory, it provides immediate relief and helps remove the stiffness from your joints, bones, and muscles.

There are few things that should be avoided by people suffering from fibromyalgia:

  • Cigarette smoking and the intake of alcohol should be avoided. It would be best to quit the habit entirely, if possible.
  • Avoid eating spicy and fried food
  • Caffeine and sugar should also be avoided as much as possible.
  • Avoid taking naps during the daytime or staying up late at night.

My fibromyalgia manifested one year after a car accident. I signed off on a settlement because i thought i was healed of a few bangs and bruises. Part of the agreement was that I could never come back and sue if any other problems came along. I felt totally fine and I signed. Now i regret it EVERY day. I struggle to support myself financially, to keep working and it is so miserable. Employers dont understand until they have a family member diagnosed and then they believe me. i finally had to resign from a job that i LOVED as a 911 dispatcher, even with the stress i loved what i did but the brain fog is progressing so bad that i became a safety risk to officers when working radio air. And now it is a struggle just to get through training for a new job due to brain fog, i do not process information the same, i cannot retain information the same, and i cannot recall information the same. i feel like a moron. i live in fear daily of losing my job.

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia for 3 years, and it was very painful some days. I was taken methocarbamol to relieve the pain. Sometimes it helps and other days it doesn't. it was killing me for 3 years, doctor said there was no cure. So I tried to live with it and it wasn't easy.My childhood friend introduced me to Dr George (Good health herbs home),Dr George fibromyalgia herbal remedy cured me within 6 weeks of usage ,am fibromyalgia free now 100%.

hello, You forgot to mention a large contributer to Fibromyalgia, injury. Saying stress makes it all sound mental. I've had huge stressors in my life, but very little stress in my life currently. I suffer fibromyalgia because a drunk driver with no insurance hit me and messed me up. I have had pain health issues my whole life because of a poor bone growth structure I was cursed with. But I was always able to fight it until the fibromyalgia got this bad and now the battle seems too hard. Still trying, but loosing hope. You need to realize that this isn't something just in a person's head. Ok, maybe some people are like that, but a lot of people get fibromyalgia after an injury.

Thanks for highlighting that even an injury can cause fibromyalgia.

I have fibromyalgia, I know that the National Arthritis Association, now recognizes it as a 'disease'.

There is a chiropractor (a number, and growing) as well as functional medicine doctors who are getting patients well from this condition.

I do not believe it has a mental component. Many of the drugs used to treat it are in the 'class of' antidepressants and are actually 'not' antidepressants, this means they are a similar molecule structure. They function by increasing endorphins which help to quell pain sites in the brain.

What the doctors are finding is that it has a large part to do with the adrenals, I notice a connection with flouride, if you have fibromyalgia or know anyone with it, I encourage you to do more research. There are a lot of things which can help: veg diet, organics, adrenal boosting medicine, raw food diet, removal of major food allergens (have these checked out as 'delayed food allergies'), seeing a functional medicine doctor, and chiropractic work, there's much more, just read more. In the meantime, check your D levels, look into the B12/D3/Magnesium therapy, and mention it to your doctor (hopefully if they're a very good one), it's very helpful! Another thing, clean air, reduction of environmental allergens, and removal of mercury from the teeth, I've known people whom this has helped.

Drugs, like pain meds, antidepressants, marijuana, etc, all only treat the 'symptom' and likely set the body back from true healing (what the chiropractors have found).
