Exercise and Talking For Fibromyalgia Relief

Researchers at the University of Missouri-Columbia compared drug and nondrug treatments by analyzing 49 studies involving 2,066 people. They found that people who used regular physical activity and cognitive behavioral therapy which involves substituting positive thoughts and feelings for negative ones felt less pain and fatigue and performed daily tasks more easily than those taking just drugs.

So…if you know someone with fibromyalgia suggest they do walking, swimming, yoga 30 minutes every other day. Also suggest they experiment with cognitive behavioral therapy or a half an hour of meditation five or six times a week.
