I think diet is important in FM just like anything and everything we do is important in managing our FM. How we move, how we keep still, how we think, what we take, what we eat, how we sleep, how we relax, whether we stretch or exercise, etc. can all be evaluated and changed to make it more favorable for our fibro.
Poor diet doesn't cause fibro, and diet doesn't cure fibro. I've had one patient who became symptom-free after changing to a gluten-free diet. This didn't mean her FM was cured; it meant I diagnosed her with FM but she really had gluten intolerence (celiac disease) instead. She had a fibro-like condition, but did not have true FM.
Many of my patients report benefits with dietary modifications.
