Treating Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - What Weird Things Help?

As varied as symptoms are when it comes to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome one thing is consistent across the board: these conditions are downright weird.

So I ask, does it take weird treatments to deal with a weird disease? For me, some weird things have made a big difference. They're all at least somewhat supported by science, but I hesitate to tell "healthy" people about them for fear of seeming crazy (or, crazier, depending on their point of view.)

Here's my list of off-the-beaten-track treatments:

  • Full-spectrum light bulbs (for circadian clock issues)
  • Cayenne fruit supplements (a natural pain killer, but not for those with IBS!)
  • Dark chocolate (to raise serotonin levels)

As you can tell, my inability to tolerate a lot of medications has made me get creative What weird things work for you? Post a comment here to let us know so we can all be weird together.
