Fibromyalgia Nutritional Support Protocol

submitted by: admin on 04/19/2015


Modern medicine does not have very effective treatment for people suffering from the family of diseases that include fibromyalgia (FM), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), and multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS). Mainstream treatment remains entrenched in using a wide variety of drugs intended to relieve the gastrointestinal, endocrine, immune, psychological, and neurological symptoms of these debilitating illnesses, but does not address their cause.

Dr. Saputo believes these illnesses are diseases characterized by energy deficiency because of defects in mitochondrial ATP production. This can be measured by taking the BioEnergy Test. The supplements listed below are those he recommends to support ATP production and reverse many of the symptoms of FM, CFS, and MCS.

Fibromyalgia: Nutritional Support Protocol

Lifestyle Recommendations:


1. Avoid stress and extra obligations.

2. Work with your doctor on a balanced exercise program that includes wearing a pedometer to ensure that you collect steps and move more, putting in high intensity short bursts (20-­60 seconds) of activity during the day to enhance growth hormone release and engaging in resistance training that works all major muscle groups (work each group at least 2 times a week).

3. Avoid corticosteroids and NSAIDS (if possible).

4. Avoid alcohol and caffeine consumption.

5. Dr. Saputo also recommends that you take the Fibromyalgia Assessment if you have not done so already.


Dietary Recommendations:

1. Avoid gluten and dairy products.

2. Avoid sugar and hydrogenated oils. Replace sugar with the polyol sugar xylitol.

3. Avoid refined and processed foods.

4. Avoid omega 6 oils such as safflower, sunflower, corn and soybean oil.

5. Eat omega 3 anti-­inflammatory foods such as salmon, mackerel and sardines.

6. Consume green drinks or fresh vegetable juices.

7. Helpful teas are chamomile, green tea, slippery elm.

8. Eat 5-­9 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables daily OR add one heaping tablespoon of PaleoGreens and PaleoReds to your favorite drink.

9. Carry dairy-­free PaleoBars with you throughout the day to prevent missing meals or snacks.
