I started a thread on another fibromyalgia site called "The Fibro Puzzle" and thought I would share the posts here. This was the first post. There are many different pieces to the fibro puzzle. I believe though that each puzzle piece, meaning each valid scientific finding and symptom of fibromyalgia, can be traced directly back to missing digestive enzymes called DNase1 and protease. Following are some of the symptoms and valid scientific findings in fibromyalgia. Low Dopamine Low Iron Spinal Cord Changes Autonomic Nervous System Dysfunction Low B12 Lack of Essential Amino Acids, Such as Tryptophan and Phenylalanine. Low Vitamin D Low Magnesium Osteoporosis Lack of Acylcarnitine High Homocysteine Increased Risk of Developing Hypothyroidism Increased Risk of Developing Restless Legs Syndrome Muscle Pain Fatigue Brain Fog Low CoQ10 Low Glutathione Elevated Tumor Necrosis Factor Activated Kynureine Pathway Myofascial Pain Comorbidity with Psychiatric Disorders, Such as Biopolar Disorder and Depression Chemical Sensitivity Seizures Anxiety Raynauds Low Human Growth Hormone Hair Loss Adrenal Fatigue Chronic Itching Night Sweats Hormone Imbalance Association With Other Diseases, Such as Lupus and RA Mitochrondrial Dysfunction Dry Eyes and Mouth Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth Low levels of Endorphins Mitral Valve Prolaspe low levels of ATP Increased risk of Cancer If each of these symptoms and findings (and any additional symptoms or findings that anyone would like to add) could be traced in a very direct way back to the missing enzymes DNase1 and protease, what would be the odds that these enzymes are not the cause of fibromyalgia? In addition, what if our most definitive scientific findings to date pointed directly at these missing enzymes? I would like to take each one of these findings and symptoms and demonstrate how they can be traced directly back to these enzymes.
