Fibromyalgia Action UK


Hi everyone. Since we are on the subject of alternative therapies. I found a research papers database that stats that, as up to January 2015, a new more rigorous research advocates the use of Feverfew for headaches/migraine which some fibro sufferers can experience. The research stats that Feverfew decreases the occurrence of the pain by over 50 %!! Over a period of one month. Though it stats that there was no reduction in the severity or duration of the pain. It was admittedly the most reliable research to Date. However it was still advocated that further studies be carried out, such as duplication of the study for example, so that unequivocal answers could be reached. Feverfew has been in the Herbalists arsenal for centuries if not millennia! No adverse effect was found - which we also knew about. Considering that there has pretty much always been guilds or school of speciality. And everyone did their own experiences and tallied them together like natives tribes still do today with herbal remedies. Western medecine believing itself tother far ahead ends up being one step behind! By their own admission of researcher effect! Afterall, our ancestors didn't map the stars with a thousands years calender for example by just getting high on frog juices! So you can tell your doctors now to do their research before they ban the use of Feverfew. This hopefully will help you with managing your mimigraines better. You can still take painkillers with it of course. Blessings.

Be aware of interaction with other drugs, Feverfew is not advised for use when on blood thinning meds or anti inflammatory medication, from my own experience. Lou x
