Cases of Fibromyalgia and Polymyalgia are growing at an alarming rate. There is much information on diet to reduce the symptoms of Fibromyalgia and Polymyalgia. However the most important nutrient to treat Fibromyalgia and Polymyalgia is Vitamin G. The “G” in Vitamin G stands for GROUNDING or EARTHING. Vitamin G is composed of Free Electrons, which act as powerful antioxidants to neutralise the Free Radicals which cause the run-away inflammation present throughout the muscles of individuals that suffer from Fibromyalgia and Polymyalgia.
Regarding fibromyalgia and polymyalgia, the following information was extracted from pages 150 – 151 of the book Earthing. The most important health discovery ever?
Fibromyalgia is a common chronic pain condition affecting an estimated 3 to 6 percent of the world population, including 10 million Americans, more than three-quarters of whom are women. According to the National Fibromyalgia Association, the causes “still remain a mystery.” The primary symptom is chronic widespread body pain, along with moderate to extreme fatigue and sleep disturbances. Often there are overlapping conditions, such as irritable bowel, lupus, and arthritis.
Armida Champagne, sixty-eight, San Diego, real estate agent: “In 1995, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. That, along with arthritis, was making my life increasingly miserable. I had a very hard time sleeping because of the pain. Just lying in bed hurt, and on top of that, I couldn’t sit too long in any one place either. I wasn’t disabled to the point where I couldn’t do things, but I was in a lot of pain. And I was tired all the time. The pain was always there, and in the evening it was particularly bad. On a scale of 1 to 10, the pain was probably at an 8 level every night. The pain was all over, from my shoulders down to my toes. It would often wake me up.
“I tried all kinds of remedies, creams, and pain relievers. They might help for about an hour or so but that was it. I avoided taking any strong painkillers, but on occasion I would use Aleve, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory over-the-counter medication, and that would help me for a while longer.
“In 2000, I started grounding myself at night with one of the first prototype bed pads. The very first night, I fell asleep right away and woke up refreshed without any pain. I couldn’t believe it. The pain was completely gone. To be sure, I have slept grounded ever since. I also have a pad on my couch, so when I lie down to relax or watch TV I am getting in some extra grounding time.
“Every once and awhile I get a twinge of pain but never like it was before. I sleep for eight hours straight. Sometimes for nine or ten. I feel fantastic and with plenty of energy I don’t know how I would be without this pad, especially with all the stress involved in my real estate work the last few years.
“Occasionally, I visit a cousin in Santa Barbara and I bring my bed pad with me. The first time I brought it, I plugged it into what I thought was a grounded wall outlet in the guest bedroom. But I didn’t sleep well that night or the next. I also started to hurt a bit. I asked my cousin about the electrical system in the house. She said the bedroom wasn’t grounded, but the kitchen and bathrooms were. So I took an extension cord with a ground prong and plugged it into an outlet in the kitchen, which was grounded. I immediately felt the difference that night and slept well.
“I was also amazed at the effect of sleeping grounded on my significant other. He had a slight sleep apnea problem diagnosed by his doctor. He used to wake up during the night, gasping for breath. Sometimes he could go back to sleep right away. Other times not. He also used to snore so loud that I couldn’t go to sleep. I would have to go to bed first and then he would come in later. The grounding changed all that as well. In a couple of months, his snoring tapered off and then stopped. The apnea took longer but it also eased up and then went away. He hasn’t had that problem for more than four years.
“For the last five years of her life, my mother slept grounded. She died in 2005 at the age of ninety-six. She was a horrible snorer until she slept grounded. Her snoring stopped as well, and I believe the grounding gave her some comfort and ease in those last years of her life.”
