FIBROMYALGIA

 

It is estimated that Fibromyalgia affects nearly 6 million or 1 in 50 people, and is characterized by chronic muscle pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances, brain fog or cognitive impairment, depression and painful tender points throughout the body.

A common, complicated, easily overlooked chronic disease, the symptoms of Fibromyalgia include:

 Gluten Intolerance

Gluten has been liked to more than 55 diseases and is often called the ‘big masquerader’. The reason for this is that the majority symptoms of gluten intolerance are not digestive in nature but rather neurological such as pain, cognitive impairment, sleep disturbances, behavioral issues, fatigue and depression.

Candida Overgrowth

Candida is a fungus or yeast, and a very small amount of it lives in your intestines. However, when overproduced, candida breaks down the wall of the intestines and penetrates the bloodstream, releasing toxic byproducts into your body causing a host of nasty symptoms such as brain fog, fatigue, digestive issues and pain. Virtually EVERY ONE of my patients with fibromyalgia has had Candida overgrowth.

Thyroid

More than half of the people with thyroid issues have no idea they have one and 90% of these have hypothyroidism, or an underactive thyroid gland. It is vital that your doctor check NINE different blood markers to measure your thyroid gland’s function. It’s imperative that your doctor use the OPTIMAL levels rather than the standard reference range when assessing and diagnosing. Getting my patient’s thyroid levels into an OPTIMAL range typically alleviates their fatigue, brain fog, sleep disturbances and depression. (See ‘Why we are Different’ under ABOUT US tab)

Vitamin Deficiencies

Magnesium, vitamin D and B12 deficiency are the most common vitamin deficiencies I see in those who have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I have known several patients completely reverse their fibromyalgia symptoms with magnesium alone. The best way to measure magnesium is a red blood cell (RBC) magnesium level, which can be tested through any conventional lab.

Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth and Leaky Gut

There are more bacteria in us and on us then there are of our own cells. When these bacteria get out of balance through use of antibiotics or a sugar-rich diet we can lose our ability to digest and absorb nutrients, particularly B12. You must fix the gut first in anyone with fibromyalgia or any chronic illness.

Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal fatigue is a result of the chronic stress whether real or perceived. Chronic pain is a stress to the adrenal glands, though typically not the initial adrenal stressor. The initial stressor is usually something such as food intolerances, Candida, mercury toxicity, vitamin deficiencies or mycotoxins. My goal is to support the adrenals with adaptogenic herbs while we search for the ROOT CAUSE of the stress and correct it.

Glutathione Deficiency

Glutathione is one of the most critical parts of our body’s DETOXIFICATION system. Glutathione gets recycled in our body unless our toxic burden gets too high. Taking glutathione or the precursors (NAC, alpha lipoic acid, milk thistle) often help my patients dramatically with fatigue.

As you can see from the above list, many of these causes are interrelated and often there is no one single ROOT CAUSE to fibromyalgia or any chronic illness. It is a combination of several or possibly all of the above. You do not need to suffer needlessly or mask your symptoms with pain medication and antidepressants. There are doctors like myself who can help you.

Taking you from Nutritional Deficiency to Nutritional Sufficiency and from Cellular Toxicity to Cellular Purity is the natural, superior way to support your FIBROMYALGIA & CHRONIC FATIGUE symptoms.

When I first met with Dr. White, I was very skeptical. I grew up in a house where Diabetes was common and I always "thought" I knew what and what not to eat. I was impressed with Dr. White and Dr. Kaufman's knowledge regarding a healthy weight loss and a healthy way of life. It was more of a holistic approach. The blood work that was done initially, was a lot more detailed than what you get at a yearly physical. I had always been concerned and careful about what I ate, but I never knew the reasons why certain "healthy" foods were better than others. As I began to eat not only healthier, but smarter. The weight came off. It wasn't at the speed of light, but with Dr. White's support and guidance I was able to surpass my goal weight. Advanced Integrated Health is the best gift I have ever given to myself.

I have been going to Dr. White since 2013 and started off extremely skeptical. I thought I knew it all! Boy, I didn't know anything. Dr. Bob (as my boys call him) has changed my life! I have energy, less anxiety, lost lots of weight and inches and just feel amazing! I have sent many friends to him and they all say the same thing. He is extremely knowledgeable and always is educating himself on the latest areas in integrated health medicine. I will never stop coming to see Dr. White!!!!!

A very nice practice to visit! I always feel so at home and relaxed. What I've learned here has truly changed my life and helped me to make some lasting improvements. Better energy, weight lost, more stamina, better sleep, better mood. In 3 months, I was able to turn around some significant areas in my bloodwork and I'm more hopeful about the future than ever. I have a chronic condition (PCOS) that I've been trying to learn how to approach for years and I FINALLY feel like I've gotten some good tools to do so! Dr. White has been so great with answering my questions whenever I come to visit. Also very accessible via phone and email!

I started seeing Dr. Kaufman during May 2014. I was overweight and had little energy. Dr. Kaufman put together a diet plan along with some vitamins, shakes and supplements. Since then, I have lost over 20 lbs, am full of energy and sleeping much better. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I also encouraged my husband to see Dr. White. He is doing great and lost over 20 lbs. It's been a wonderful experience and I highly recommend AIH.

When I first walked into Advanced Integrated Health, I was overweight, sluggish and just not feeling myself. I met with Dr. White who was very understanding and eager to help me attain my goal of restoring my health. In a few months I have lost 25 pounds, i have my energy back and I feel like myself again. It took hard work but with the support of Dr. White I was able to do it. Not only did I lose weight, Dr. White taught me a new way of living healthy. I owe much my success to him and I am grateful I walked into his office.

Which is exactly what I Needed!!!

What a great Experience I am having! With the Encouragement and support of Dr. Bob White daily, I have increased my energy which has lead to weight loss.

A friend recommended Dr. White as a natural approach to weight loss and healing. I was contemplating bariatric surgery but was afraid of the long term problems this procedure could cause. Dr. White was very thorough explaining the process and welcomed all my questions. I must say at the beginning it was not easy but if weight loss was easy we would have an obesity epidemic. This is definitely the best approach to weight loss I know of and I’ve tried them all. You will not starve, but by eating the right foods you will see an almost immediate difference in the way you feel and look. Dr. White will guide you through the process of eliminating the foods that affect your body negatively and introducing those that benefit you. I’ve lost over 25 lbs. in 6 months and I feel fantastic. My energy level is high; the quality of my sleep has improved tremendously. I don’t suffer from pain or panic attacks, blood pressure if perfect. If you are serious about losing weight and improving your health this is definitely the place to go. Everyone in his office is very welcoming. I highly recommend him.
