[fright][/fright]Dr. Ginevra Liptan has fibromyalgia and is the author of The FibroManual: A Complete Fibromyalgia Treatment Guide for You and Your Doctor. She also blogs regularly. In the below blog she writes on her approach to reduce neuroinflammation in FM which includes low dose naltrexone, cannabis, turmeric, green tea and others.
Read the entire blog hereWe already have some evidence that treatments that specifically lower inflammation levels in the brain can lessen fibromyalgia symptoms. Many of what we think of as anti-inflammatory medications (like ibuprofen or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatories) don’t work well on brain inflammation, but there are some treatments that do.
The most effective one is called low-dose naltrexone (LDN), which is a medication but primarily prescribed by alternative medicine providers, as most western medicine doctors are not familiar with its use for pain.
