Malic Acid and Magnesium for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Syndrome Billie J. Sahley, Ph.D.: The major focus of this publication is to assist those suffering from fibromyalgia and chronic pain understand what is happening in their body and brain and why.
The nutritional approach to chronic pain is not new. Some of the herbs have been used for hundreds of years. When you replace in the brain and body what you are deficient in, then you are addressing the problem and your healing is enhanced.
If you use prescription medications such as antidepressants, tranquilizers, and pain medications, you are only treating the symptoms. Prescription medications only use the current supply of neurotransmitters and nutrients, and do not create any new
neurotransmitters, the chemical language of the brain.
You were not born with prescription drugs in your brain and body so how can you be deficient? Pain, stress, anxiety, and depression burn the amino acids and minerals your body must have for proper functioning. You must constantly replenish your brain with needed nutrients.
The nutrients described in this publication will have a positive effect on your pain, and the anxiety and depression that comes with it. The chemical imbalance that many physicians refer to when they suggest psychiatric drugs does not occur until you
take the drugs. Only the amino acids that create neurotransmitters correct neurotransmitter imbalances.
It is widely known that aluminum overload can lead to major metabolic disturbances.
Researchers have studied removal of the toxic metal, especially from the body’s vital organs. An adequate amount of magnesium helps to prevent the toxic effects
Malic acid can act as a most potent aluminum detoxifying agent and is especially effective at decreasing aluminum toxicity in the brain.
Treatment with malic acid has been shown to greatly increase the fecal and urinary excretion of aluminum, and reduce the concentration of aluminum found in various organs and tissues.
