Fibromyalgia sufferer on The Dr Oz Show

Ask Dr. Oz Season 2: Post Op #3

Audience member Brenda tells Dr. Oz [pictured] that she gets bruises and doesn't know why.

Dr. Oz explains that when women get older, their membranes (including skin and blood vessel capillaries) become more fragile and thin. Dr. Oz also indicates that chemicals like aspirin will enhance that fragility and leaking through those capillary beds, but the trade-off becomes the reduction of heart attack and stroke instances.

Audience member Mary Louise was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and has the Epstein Bar Virus [sic]. Mary Louise tells Dr. Oz that she has been trying the holistic approach to treatment, but she has a hard time sleeping.

Dr. Oz explains that fibromyalgia is essentially a short circuiting of the body. It creates a flux in energy levels, often caused by a virus, illness, or an emotional event. Dr. Oz suggests that the afflicted keep moving to regenerate energy levels, even if pain occurs. Most importantly, when one has fibromyalgia, Dr. Oz encourages avoiding sugar and sticking to key whole foods.
