Fibromyalgia and Pituitary Damage

Dan Purser, MD talks about the connection between pituitary damage and fibromyalgia in his book Top 7 Female Health Concerns. "From our research we believe that fibromyalgia is almost always caused by pituitary damage. The location in the bony vault (called the sella turcica) makes the pituitary very vulnerable. This positioning is why it can be damaged in car wrecks and from a sudden blow to the head and from whiplash injuries. The pituitary is very fragile and the stalk damage is most common. Anyone with fibromyalgia knows what fibro fog is-it's where they get confused and have brain fog--it's terrible. Well, partially this is from lack of pregnenalone which women make in their ovaries and men make in their testicles-under the control of the pituitary. This is where it breaks down-these patients have a damaged pituitary and cannot make pregnenalone."
Dr.Purser recommends endocrine supporting supplements to help replace thyroid, pituitary, and adrenal hormones like Young Living's Thyromin and PD 80/20. Follow the links to learn more about these products. Selenium, one of the ingredients in Thyromin helps thyroid receptors work better.

I highly recommend craniosacral therapy to help ease stress on the pituitary gland from the structural standpoint. Oils best to soothe fibromyalgia externally:
German Chamomile
Idaho Balsam fir

Blends: PanAway, Relieve It, OrthoSport, Deep Relief Roll On, Stress Away Roll On

Diffusing an essential oil may help ease brain fog.
Mix 2-5 drops of the essential oil of your choice with 2-5 drops of carrier oil (jojoba, grapeseed, almond) and apply to specific locations of discomfort. A full body massage or Raindrop Technique weekly is very beneficial.
