Fibromyalgia Treatment That Science Proves Works!

Fibromyalgia Treatment

Fibromyalgia is a debilitating, body-wide condition that affects women more so than men and tends to occur between the ages of 40-60. It is characterised by pain/spasms in multiple muscles. Patients often have a myriad of other associated symptoms including, fatigue, brain fog and poor sleep. It’s not surprising therefore, that a high percentage of these patients are also clinically depressed.

Characteristically all Rheumatological blood tests come back ‘normal’. This can lead to serious distress and further depression on the part of the patient who is naturally trying to find answers and solutions to explain their pains and yet all their test results are coming back saying everything is ‘normal’ when clearly they don’t feel normal. Unfortunately this often leads to health care providers saying that all the pains are due to a psychological ‘cause’ only.

Random Controlled Trial Evidence

At last, there is new ground breaking research that is providing elusive answers which indicate the problem is in fact biochemical not psychological. The results from the triple blind Random Controlled Trial (RCT) using whole body PBM Therapy (see below) proves Fibromyalgia must have a major component caused by Cytochrome c Oxidase dysfunction in your cells’ Mitochondria. If this was not the case then PBM Therapy would not have produced such impressive results.

This explains why blood tests are always ‘clear’, as standard Rheumatological blood tests do not test Cytochrome c Oxidase dysfunction in your Mitochondria.

The results from this RCT for the treatment of Fibromyalgia using the NovoTHOR Whole Body Photobiomodulation Light Bed has just been presented to the 2022 British Pain Society conference prior to its publication in Pain and Therapy peer reviewed journal.

What did the Researchers do?

PBM Therapy clinic NovoThor Whole Body Photobiomodulation

In this Fibromyalgia RCT equal groups of 21 patients were placed in a NovoTHOR Whole body Photobiomodulation Therapy light bed. One group received the treatment and one a placebo. They all had:

  • Three 20 minute treatments a week for 4 weeks (12 in total)
  • Pain levels and quality of life questionnaires were used to assess the patients at the start, and then again at 2-weeks and 4-weeks whilst they were having NovoTHOR whole body Photobiomodulation
  • At week 6, 2 weeks after the last treatment was the last final assessment. Patients continued to improve in pain and quality of life scores despite having no more treatments!

The results were amazing!

Pain Levels  (10 being the worst pain ever)

‘Full Body PBM Therapy pain levels goes down by 47% whereas the placebo’s levels stays the same’

Quality of Life Score (QOL)

‘Full Body PBM Therapy Quality Of Life (QOL) score goes up by 100% whereas the placebo’s stays the same’

Both pain levels and quality of life scores dramatically changed with the treatment statistically showing that these results were 99.999% due to the treatment and not due to some other unknown factor.

To put this into perspective a treatment has to have a certainty outcome of 95% to be accepted as a valid. Pain level reduction and quality of life score continued to improve even when treatment had stopped!

It’s a real game changer for patients suffering from this debilitating condition and proves that treatment using NovoTHOR whole body Photobiomodulation is a natural, safe and drug free way to treat Fibromyalgia symptoms.

Fibromyalgia Treatment

Our PBM Therapy Clinic has the enviable position of having one of the few whole body NovoTHOR PBM Therapy light beds in the UK. There are only a few hundred of these globally and less than 10 in the UK. We are easy to get to as we are in the centre of the country, close to motorways, train links and airports.

How does PBM Therapy work?

The NovoTHOR PBM Therapy light bed pod surrounds your whole body thus bathing you head to toe with Red and Near Infra Red (NIR) penetrating light.

The unique advantage of a whole body NovoTHOR light bed is that your whole body receives the PBM Therapy from head to toe at the same time! Helping to make poorly functioning unhealthy cells healthier and healthy cells even more healthy and more resistant to cell death in a process scientists call pre conditioning.  Read more about preconditioning on this page – don’t forget to scroll to the bottom to see all the posts!

Authors note: The results included questionnaires 2-weeks after the last treatment. Patients continued to improve in pain and quality of life scores despite having no more treatments! The researchers are going to follow up the patients at 3-months and 6-months to see how they are.

My clinical experience of using our NovoTHOR for patients with chronic symptoms/fibromyalgia is that some stay well for a long time after a course, and some slowly slip backwards. For those for whom the improvements don’t last we do find that their improvements can be maintained with periodic ‘maintenance’ or top up treatments.

Finally we also need more RCT data with more patients from more centres that have NovoTHOR light beds, but due to their scarcity, this may take some time.
