Potential Climate Benefits for fibromyalgia
How the Natural Elements Work Together to Provide Relief from Fibromyalgia Symptoms
Sunshine - ultraviolet radiation (UVR)
Get out in the sun to relieve fibromyalgia, boost your immune system, and revitalize your system. Sunlight serves as the perfect medicinal pill in promoting a healthy lifestyle. For centuries, doctors and natural healers relied on medical treatment by sunlight, called Heliotherapy, to help heal many common ailments.
Sunlight and vitamin D production
The main function of vitamin D is to maintain the body’s calcium concentrations at a precise level. This is accomplished by increasing the absorption of calcium from the intestines and the interaction with other hormones (such as parathyroid hormone).
Sunlight and low levels of serotonin
How increasing serotonin levels can help reduce fibromyalgia pain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that helps to communicate pain signals to different parts of the brain. When serotonin is lacking, the brain cannot communicate pain signals effectively, resulting in increased, even severe pain. fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) has also been linked to low levels of serotonin in the brain.
