Foods for Fibromyalgia
3 Replies
Cher0208 - February 7

One of the things that I try to keep in my house is a pack of Umeboshi Plums. They are ridiculously expensive ($17 for a pack of 16 or so) and can be purchased at a Health Food Store or on Amazon. They are highly alkalizing for our blood which is really good. I ate one every morning and felt great. Since I ran out I haven't been feeling so great. They have a ton of sodium so good luck getting used to the taste. My boyfriend spit it right out and refused to eat it again. But in a few weeks he relented and started eating one a day with me. I love them and actually started craving them. I'll literally eat anything if you tell me it will make me healthier and take this pain away! Also, I have a book called The Complete Book of Nutritional Healing by Deborah Mitchell on how to eat for different ailments. For Fibro they suggest anything containing Omega 3's such as flax seeds(I put them in my cereal every morning), salmon, tuna, walnuts. Also, foods rich in antioxidants such as blueberries and almonds(I also put them in my cereal every morning),apricots, asparagus, bell peppers, broccoli, brown rice, cabbage, cantaloupe, carrots, cauliflower, eggs, grapefruit, greens, guava, lemons, mango, oatmeal, onions, papaya, parsley, peaches, peas, pumpkin, strawberries, sunflower seeds, sweet potatoes, tangerines, tomatoes, turkey, watermelon, wheat germ. When I take liquid magnesium it helps tremendously with the pain. Green tea is great too. I was drinking it everyday but of course now I'm super sensitive to caffeine and can't have the caffeinated kind anymore. The one thing that gave me energy and took some of this fog away is now giving me anxiety and oddly enough aggravates this weird facial twitching I've been getting around my mouth. Any suggestions for a non caffeine alternative for energy?

Ginseng and Spirulina are both great for energy.

I heard that mirabelle plums are better for fbm diet. I thought that you moved in the right direction, picking more vegetables in your preference!
