TURNER – Joseph K. Mackin, DC, BCAO, and Brad Kiriaka, DC, BCAO, will present a seminar on “Fibromyalgia: Natural Solutions that Really Make a Difference” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 12, at the GAR Hall in North Turner.

The seminar will be offered for people who suffer from the chronic and debilitating disease. There may be structural and nutritional imbalances preventing sufferers from obtaining relief.

Fibromyalgia is a wide-spread musculoskeletal pain and fatigue disorder with no known cure. There is no blood test, CAT scan or MRI to detect it and people with fibromyalgia are often told they are hypochondriacs.

Symptoms include pain, sleep disorders, fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic headaches, constant flu-like symptoms and fibro fog (loss of mental clarity). The disease is complicated by irritability, depression, sadness, anger, the feelings of being helpless and hopeless and a resigned detached sense of giving up.

One of the underlying causes of fibromyalgia is a change in brain chemistry from distress in the central nervous system. During the seminar procedure for the correction of the distress will be discussed.
