Are you ready to live? Really live that feeling good life you desire to live? Thank you for joining me on this episode of the Feeling Good Podcast, it’s great to be alive. On this feel good day, we’ll talk about how a magnesium deficiency, stress, and an overgrowth of yeast can all cause chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia.
Key Takeaways from This Podcast:
[1:11] If you suffer from muscle pain, that pain may intensify as the outside temperatures drop.
[1:44] Throughout the month of September we are talking about chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. Please share with others who may be suffering with these conditions.
[2:15] Check out a free online summit about chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, given by various doctors from across the country, including Dr. Phil, starting on September 12th, 2017.
[3:09] Why do people have chronic muscle pain and how can it be treated? This is a common symptom from people suffering from fibromyalgia.
[4:27] Is there something natural that can be taken instead of muscle relaxers?
[4:49] Magnesium is the best natural relaxer out there.
[5:23] You always need to test, not guess. You have to request to have your magnesium tested.
[6:33] Many patients who suffer from chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia also suffer with bowel problems. Magnesium can also help remedy those issues as well.
[7:15] If you take magnesium and you start having loose stools or diarrhea then you need to lower the dose.
[7:38] If you are suffering with muscle pain, check out the muscle relaxing supplement by Standard Process, Min-Chex. This not only helps with relaxing muscles, but helps as an antidepressant as well.
[8:15] Stress leads to adrenal fatigue. Adrenals control the electrolytes in our body and magnesium is an electrolyte; so stress might be causing the magnesium deficiency in your body.
[9:10] Another underlying cause of fibromyalgia can be an overgrowth of yeast in the body. Yeast, or candida, produces toxins that form oxalates. Oxalates cause the nerves to be more sensitive.
[10:58] Have a test done to make sure you don’t have an overgrowth of yeast. If you don’t have a sufficient amount of good bacteria, yeast can get out of control.
[12:31] There are natural products available to kill excess yeast in your body.
[13:26] This episode’s Feeling Good Superhero is Margaret. Margaret had been to the doctor several times and was suffering from chronic yeast infections. She was not getting any relief from the medications prescribed. After talking to Dr. Phil he suggested she had a different type of yeast infection that those anti-fungal medications wouldn’t cover, she went back to her doctor and had a test done and discovered Dr. Phil was right. She started on a product that had berberine in it and her yeast infections cleared up. She began to get her life back and found relief from the discomfort and relief she has felt for so long. That is a great example of testing and not guessing.
[16:01] Your health care is up to you. You need to be asking for the tests.
[16:48] The greatest joys in life come not from you being lifted by others, but rather by others being lifted by you.

Although Prednisone is generally safe if taken short-term, long-term users like I am, do face some side effects. I take for COPD – a terrible disease that is slowly killing me. The drug reduces the inflammation in the lungs, so I can breathe easier. My typical dose is 10 mg a day, but during exacerbations of the disease, my doc increases it.
