PTSD, Chronic Pain or Fatigue are related
PTSD, Chronic Pain or Fatigue impact on relationships and family dynamics in huge ways. They also seem to be associated with each other more often than not.
When you or your partner are diagnosed with one of these conditions, it is important for the rest of the family to BELIEVE the sufferer and help in practical ways, including adjust the family diet as pointed out below.
Have you developed Fibromyalgia?
A search for Causes of Fibromyalgia produced a list of 9 possible causes to explore and included the following:-
“Traumatic Events and Stress

Manage Inflammation & Fatigue by Diet
Your vegetable garden contains the best diet!
By “wrong diet,” we’re talking about the typical Western diet which is full of inflammation-inducing foods. Think: fried foods, refined flours and sugars, hormone- and antibiotic-laden animal products, synthetic sweeteners, and artificial food additives.
So if you’re constantly noshing on these items, your body will begin to transition into a state of chronic inflammation. This inflammatory, high-energy diet builds belly fat, reduces levels of gut-healthy probiotics, induces weight gain, causes joint pain, bloating, and fatigue, and has been connected with a host of diseases, from diabetes and obesity to heart disease and cancer. And it gets worse: Once you get belly fat, just like an active volcano, it can start spewing out dangerous substances through a condition called “leaky gut.”
