Jacob Teitelbaum, MD says, SHINE helps fibromyalgia.
SHINE stands for Sleep, Hormones, Infections, Nutritional supplements and Exercise.
This approach has led to improvements in 91 percent of fibromyalgia patients. Patients should get 8-9 hours of sleep a night. They should be tested for hormone deficiency and treated if necessary, get treated for any symptoms of infections and have nutritional supplementation, such as B-12 and magnesium and exercise as much as possible.
Also effective: Taking 5,000 milligrams of ribose (Corvalen), a nonprescription medical food, twice a day increased energy by an average of 61 percent.
