Iodoral (iodine supplement) is the basis of our treatment program. This is a tablet form of Lugol's Solution which has been used medicinally since 1829.
Magnesium oxide (capsules) is taken internally, but it will have a laxative effect--a welcome side effect for many fibromyalgia patients.
Ancient Minerals Topical Magnesium Chloride is a convenient form of transdermal magnesium — absorbed through the skin — for those who prefer to avoid the hassle of taking pills and the difficulties inherent with poorly tolerated oral supplements.
Liquid magnesium is an effective pain killer when rubbed directly into sore or strained muscles.
There are many probiotic products available on the market, and most fibromyalgia patients will benefit from probiotic supplementation. We prefer the live probiotics found in kefir (cultured milk - such as "Lifeway") and cultured vegetables made with a culture starter (such as "Body Ecology") or whey from yogurt or soured raw milk.Cod Liver Oil
Sunshine is your best source of vitamin D, but for those of us who do not spend at least 15 minutes in the sun every day, Green Pastures "Blue Ice Cod Liver Oil" capsules (or liquid) are a good alternative source of this important vitamin.
We recommend coconut oil (taken internally) for cognitive problems and used externally as a facial cream. It is also an excellent choice for treating hemorrhoids and vaginal dryness or irritation.
We recommend that you quit using processed salt and use a good natural sea salt which contains many trace minerals. You MUST use sea salt (not processed salt) if you are doing "salt loading" as part of your detoxification program.
