The Link Between Your Gut and Your Fibromyalgia

If you have fibromyalgia and also experience digestive issues, your gut problems may be more than a coincidence.


Did you know that people with fibromyalgia have a high incidence of gut-related disorders in combination with their other fibromyalgia symptoms?


These statistics below really show that gut is a big problem in people with fibromyalgia:


  • IBS occurs in nearly 60% of people with fibromyalgia.

  • Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), a condition with similar symptoms in which the small intestine is colonized by colon bacteria also occurs at an alarming number of 20-30% of people with fibromyalgia.

  • New research suggests that there is an association between the abundance of several types of bacteria and the severity of fibromyalgia symptoms, including pain intensity, pain distribution, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and cognitive symptoms.


As you all may already know I suffered from IBS since I was in my teens. It developed during high school…


My symptoms have been mild to severe and have varied for the past 30 years…


My IBS symptoms were so severe I hated even leaving the house. Always fearful that I would have sudden diarrhea and severe abdominal cramping that would leave me doubled over without any prior warning!


Until…


I completed my first elimination diet.


… Since the elimination diet and finding out I had unknown food sensitivities to both dairy and gluten…


I no longer suffer from IBS!


… that‘s right I no longer suffer from IBS, I can leave my house without needing to know where every restroom in America is 🤣!


So enough about me.


What does this all mean for you?


If you suffer from digestive symptoms or have a digestive disorder such as:


  • Leaky Gut

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

  • Ulcers

  • Crohn’s Disease


and/or you have these symptoms:

  • Bloating or gas

  • Insomnia

  • Sudden weight gain or weight loss

  • Constipation

  • Diarrhea

  • Indigestion

  • Halitosis (bad breath)


You need to have your digestion evaluated!


And because I want to see you succeed and overcome your fibromyalgia symptoms as well as your digestive trouble you can email me at hello@sunshinefunctionalmedicine.com and request a free copy of my digestive evaluation and I will even give you a complimentary 30-minute session to discuss your results.


You may be wondering … How does this affect my fibromyalgia?


Good question, I thought you’d never ask!


So if your gut is not working properly …


  • You are not getting the nutrients you need

  • Your toxins are not getting eliminated properly

  • Your organs are not getting what they need

  • Your inflammation builds

  • You have worsening fibro symptoms of pain, fatigue, brain fog, IBS, etc

Just email me your name and request the digestion evaluation to hello@sunshinefunctionalmedicine.com and I will send it out to you ASAP.
