Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition whose cause is unknown. Just the sort of job for our medicine. This is because we treat pattern of illness in the body and don't label the illness as western medicine does. This just means that we look for imbalances in the body that may lead to the illness. So how this works is: we will take your medical history and current symptoms and look at your tongue and ask you a bunch of questions and then we will formulate a treatment plan. Most of the time the underlying problem or root cause of fibromyalgia is a deficiency, or a weakness in the body that needs to be strengthened. We strengthen this weakness using acupuncture, herbal supplements (optional) and dietary recommendations. When the imbalance in the body is brought back into balance, when the weakness is made stronger, the illness should disappear.
