What Causes Fibromyalgia Mineral Deficiency?

When speaking of Fibromyalgia, you will probably never hear of Mineral Deficiency as being associated with the disease.

What is Fibromyalgia Mineral Deficiency?

Below are several studies that look at Fibromyalgia Mineral Deficiency. They studies point to a simple, low cost dietary solution. Of course, the Water Cures is one of the simplest ways to get most of the minerals we need daily.

There is another concern related to this that you should be aware of. While the more expansive name has not caught on (as of the fall of 2016), it is affecting 300,000 people every year (according to the CDC) and it may be the cause of Fibromyalgia. Most people know it as Lyme's disease. In reality, there are several potential bacterial infections that are related to Lyme but are not the same. Thus, one doctor suggested the name, MSIDS or multiple systemic infectious disease syndrome.

These bacteria are, in many cases, the cause of the mineral deficiency in that they work on the gut in such a way that it cannot adequately absorb enough of the minerals from the diet. We will need more in order to compensate for the shortage due to absorption problems in the body.

Several studies point to a fibromyalgia mineral deficiency connection. This offers scientific evidence that the water cures protocol is an effective and viable way to treat fibromyalgia. As you read this, you will see that the evidence points to both a lack of vital minerals in those suffering with fibromyalgia and that adding providing the minerals makes possible the relief or elimination of fibromyalgia symptoms.

Fibromyalgia Mineral Deficiency Studies

Is magnesium citrate treatment effective on pain, clinical parameters and functional status in patients with fibromyalgia? 2013 (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22271372 )

The study found that serum magnesium and zinc levels may play an important role in the pathophysiology of fibromyalgia.


The relationship between serum trace element levels and clinical parameters in patients with fibromyalgia. Rheumatol Int. 2008 (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18496697)

Association between serum zinc level and number of tender points and the fatigue noted and magnesium level was notable. The results of this study points to serum magnesium and zinc levels as playing an important role in the pathophysiology of fibromyalgia.


Women with fibromyalgia have lower levels of calcium, magnesium, iron and manganese in hair mineral analysis. 2011 (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22022174)

The conclusion, concentrations of calcium, magnesium, iron, and manganese in the hair of women with fibromyalgia were lower than those of controls.


Reduction of fibromyalgia symptoms through intravenous nutrient therapy: results of a pilot clinical trial. 2007 (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17515022# )

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a modified Myers' intravenous nutrient therapy (IVNT) on the symptoms of fibromyalgia (FM) in therapy-resistant FM patients.

All had improvement in symptoms and increases in their activities of daily living, although no participant reported complete resolution of symptoms. IVNT appears to be safe to reduce FM.

Myer’s Cocktail: an intravenous vitamin-and-mineral formula which consists of magnesium, B vitamins, and vitamin C. It has been found effective for acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome), fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergic rhinitis, cardiovascular disease, and other disorders.

The general effect of a Myers Cocktail intravenous therapy appears to be a marked improvement in the energy capacity and function of cells. If your cells can function at their best, it’s more likely you can recover from a serious health problem.


Balneotherapy for fibromyalgia at the Dead Sea. Rheumatol Int. 2001 Apr;20(3):105-8. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11354556) The study was to evaluate the effectiveness of balneotherapy on patients with fibromyalgia (FM) at the Dead Sea.

With the exception of tenderness, the improvement was noted in the group receiving treatment and it lasted past 3 months. Reduced severity of fibromyalgia related symptoms (pain, fatigue, stiffness, and anxiety) and reduced frequency of symptoms (headache, sleep problems, and subjective joint swelling) were reported in both groups but the treatment group the relief lasted longer.

The conclusion, using balneotherapy at the Dead Sea is effective and safe and may become an additional therapeutic modality in fibromyalgia.


Final Thoughts on Fibromyalgia Mineral Deficiency

Based on the evidence, the water cures is a viable option with science behind the theory. More importantly, it is simple, easy and with exception of the cost of the salt, it is practically free.

Our Grandparents Knew About Mixing Hydration and Eating!

It is amazing how so many things that are new to us were common knowledge in the past. One basic practice of the Water Cures protocol is to drink at least 30-45 minutes before and 2 1/2 hours after a meal. This is not a new thought however. Notice what a magazine from 1925 had to say...

"Drink plenty of water two hours after each meal; drink none just before eating; and a small quantity if any at meal time. Do not take a bath until two hours after eating a meal, nor closer than one hour before eating. Drink a full glass of water both before and after the bath." (Golden Age, Sept. 9, 1925, pp. 784-785)

The Great Salt Debate
Here is the Science

We are not promoting increased salt intake. We are suggesting taking salt in amounts appropriate to your bodies needs, based on water needs. Our needs are not one size fits all.

Note: Do you have CHF or Kidney Disease? Then.....

There is more to Water Cures than just salt and water. Diet, 50 to 80% raw food is best and exercise play an important part. And we believe the science is important too. Below is some of the research we found as to why Water Cures is the solution for better health.

Listen to your body. Do not use this if you are under a doctors care. Do not stop taking medications without consulting your doctor. If you are on medications, consult your doctor if you start the Water Cures Protocol as it may change your needs.

Heal Your Headache It Worked For Me

Hi, my name is Sharon. The webmaster of this site is my nurse, my personal water coach and my husband.

As this site was first being built, I had a headache and as usual took an Ibuprofen. Impatient for it to start working, I decided to try the Water Cures. I took a pinch of salt and a glass of water. Then I took a second pinch of salt and another glass of water. My headache was gone in less than 5 minutes.

From my personal experience, it usually takes 30 to 45 minutes for Ibuprofen to work. Some have found it takes ibuprofen 24 minutes to start working.

Yet on the Water Cures protocol, my headache was gone in 5 minutes.

Its simple: give your body what it needs and your body will give you what you need, the ability to feel great.

Water Cures was the solution for the elimination of my headache. It is what I will use from now on.

Why not give it a try yourself.
