Fibromyalgia

Nutritional and holistic approach:
 

  • It is important to identify and approach any imbalance that may apply and additional strain on the body such as food sensitivities and immune system conditions
  • Ensuring the health of the digestive system. For example, proper nutrient absorption
  • Eating foods that help alleviate chronic inflammation
  • Making sure that there is good sleep hygiene
  • Balancing and employ stress management and relaxation techniques

Recipe 

Pre-soaked oatmeal (or other grains) with blueberries, cinnamon, nut milk

  • Oatmeal that has been soaked preferably overnight (Soaking grains makes it much easier to digest and makes the grain much more bioavailable for us to absorb nutrients and fibres)
  • Water
  • ½ cup of blueberries (high in antioxidants helps to reduce inflammations)
  • Cinnamon to taste (promotes blood circulation)
  • Nut milk (optional)
  • Maple syrup or honey to taste in moderation (both sweeteners are high in minerals and honey is a well-known antimicrobial)
  • Sprinkle your favourite seeds such as hemp seeds, raw pumpkin and/or sunflower seeds

Directions: In a pot, add pre-soaked oats and water and cinnamon. Cook at medium heat until cooked. Remove from heat, add blueberries and rest of ingredients. Enjoy!
