What causes fibromyalgia?
The western medical fraternity are not sure about the causes of fibromyalgia. Some research has shown that people with fibromyalgia have certain subtle changes in certain brain chemicals, neuro-peptides produced by the nervous system and minor changes in the level of neurotransmitters, chemicals responsible for transmitting messages between nerves and between brain cells , for example. Research studies have also shown that people with fibromyalgia tend to have an increased amount of a chemical called substance P in the fluid that bathes the brain and spinal cord (the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)). This substance may be involved in the way pain messages are transmitted.
A current main theory is that people with fibromyalgia have an oversensitivity to pain signals in the brain. This is called central sensitisation. This may be due to various minor changes in brain chemicals. What triggers or causes these changes is seemingly not understood.
Note: the term fibromyalgia has been used for a long time. However, because the cause is now thought to be due to some of the processes described above in the brain and spinal cord, the term fibromyalgia does not accurately describe the condition. That is, there is little evidence that the disease is due to a problem with peripheral tissues such as muscles, tendons and ligaments (although the pain is often felt in these tissues).
Who gets fibromyalgia?
About 1 in 50 people develop fibromyalgia at some stage according to the statistics we have seen, with a staggering 10 million people in the USA showing symptoms - doubling since 2005. It is seven times more common in women than in men. In most cases it first develops between the ages of 25 and 55 and seems to be less common in younger adults and children.
What are the symptoms of fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is typically diagnosed if the individual has experienced widespread body pain for 3 months and demonstrates pain at 11 of 18 characteristic tender points on the body. These points are located on the shoulders, neck, chest, rib cage, buttocks, lower back, shins, knees, thighs, and elbows.
Typically, many areas of the body are affected, and some people feel the pain all over, with the back and neck usually being the most painful. The intensity of pain can vary from day to day and week to week' and is generally made worse by stress, activity, being cold, exposure to EMF radiation and auto-immune problems. Tenderness and feeling stiff on waking are also commonly reported to us atScenar India.

Tiredness is extremly common and can be more distressing than the pain as the sleep pattern is interrupted and the parasympathetic system does not 'kick in'. Paradoxically you need energy to heal, but when you have a chronic dis-ease (we would say 'blockages caused by the body being un-easy) you have less energy and may wake up feeling exhausted; most activities will just make you feel even more tired and lead to poor concentration.
What is the typical treatment for fibromyalgia
Allopathic guidelines point out that optimal results require a combination of treatments: treatment without medication and treatment with medication; treatment should be tailored to the individual according to pain intensity, function, and whether such features as depression, tiredness and sleep problems are also present.
Although exercise does not always help, studies have shown that it improves symptoms in a good number of cases. Building up to more and more exercise if able is considered a good thing. Aerobic exercises which are gently in nature, such as walking, cycling and swimming, are thought to be the best form of exercise to improve symptoms. Stretching exercises such as yoga may also help. The aim being to exercise safely and without increased pain.
Fibromyalgia treatment with the Scenar India Scenar
We believe that like most chronic dis-eases , fibromyalgia is a combination of over acidity in the body with far flung causes. These causes are indicated by reports and case histories from an increasing number of 'holistic' practitioners from many disciplines - medical doctors, physiotherapists, nurses, acupuncturists, scenar therapists , chiropractors, .. and many more.
What we are more certain of is the influence of 'epigenetic' factors on this so called dis-ease. By that we mean the invisible and ever increasing threat from EMF radiation (wfi, cell phones, microwaves, tetra masts, radar etc) - most symptoms of which are interchangeable with fibromyalgia, toxins in the home and workplace,GM modified and processed food (devoid of nutrition), pesticides, herbicides, side effects of drugs, polluted water … we could go on ! When you treat yourself and others with the Scenar India you will experience the powerful effects of pain reduction/resolution and accelerated healing. As we are limited to only claiming 'pain relief ' for this space age technology, we will say that as a 'positive side effect' of the simple techniques we show one can expect a powerful healing response from the 'body' as the nerve like impulses awaken the ' natural internal pharmacy' , healing compounds that will accelerate healing and start detoxification.
The basic treatment with the Scenar India is as simple as brushing the device over different areas of the body and finding where the 'sticky areas' which relate to changes of electrical skin impedance indicating energy blockages which be removed by brushing in a particular direction as shown on our DVD. The on-line members area provides more information about 'health fusion technologies and how to use a simple combination of relatively inexpensive (or free) products with the Scenar India to further accelerate healing!
While a serious condition like fibromyalgia may need a more concerted effort than with some other ailments, a substantial reduction or elimination of pain can be achieved.
