June 2, 2015 (FPRC) -- Fibromyalgia (pronounced fy-bro-my-AL-ja), is a condition that affects five to six million Americans. Eighty to ninety percent of those diagnosed with fibromyalgia are women and most people are diagnosed during middle age.
Fibromyalgia presents itself as widespread chronic pain, multiple tender points in joints and muscles, sleep disturbances and insomnia, extreme fatigue, stress, anxiety, and an interference with basic daily activities.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, a leading chiropractic and nutritional journal, published a study called “Hair calcium and magnesium levels in patients with fibromyalgia – a case center study.” Regarding the results of this study, it should be clarified that when a hair analysis finds a high amount of calcium in the hair, it usually indicates a deficiency of calcium in the body.
The high calcium reading often represents a loss of calcium into the soft tissues. One reason for the loss is that under certain circumstances the calcium provided by the diet is not adequate or it’s not soluble or absorbable. This deficiency can lead to muscle cramping, aches, pains and insomnia: the signs of low calcium and also of fibromyalgia.
The researchers noted that fibromyalgia is not an uncommon condition. Because its cause has yet to be identified, fibromyalgia remedies and treatments can frequently lead to unsatisfactory outcomes. Earlier tests showed that supplementing calcium with magnesium to fibromyalgia subjects reduced their number of tender points and discomfort.
The study objective was to determine the degree of difference between the hair calcium and magnesium levels in patients with fibromyalgia and in healthy subjects. A review was done of twelve patients who had a hair analysis performed and who met the criteria of fibromyalgia as defined by American College of Rheumatology (rheumatology covers disorders of the joints and muscles). These patients were then matched by age and sex to twelve healthy subjects selected from the same patient files who had a hair analysis performed for checkup purposes.
The results: their tests showed that the patients with fibromyalgia had substantially higher hair calcium and magnesium levels than the other subjects. They concluded that a fibromyalgia calcium deficiency exists and that calcium and magnesium supplements are indicated as an additional beneficial treatment of fibromyalgia.

Sleep Minerals II contains calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, and zinc, all mixed together in a softgel with natural rice brain oil for complete absorption and a deeper sleep. In addition to sleeplessness and insomnia, Sleep Minerals II is beneficial for restless leg syndrome, fibromyalgia and other calcium deficiency conditions.
L.R.C. of Massachusetts says: "I had become dependent on sleeping drugs and couldn’t sleep without them. Now I take the Sleep Minerals before bed and I can sleep through the night without drugs. I’m also able to easily fall back to sleep if I do have to get up. Another benefit is it helps alleviate my chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and aches and pains."
