Fibromyalgia is a painful, chronic, widespread condition that is intensified by pressure on the body. It is often associated with poor memory, lack of sleep, mood disorders, fatigue and lethargy. Statistically, more women than men suffer from this medical condition. As with many health conditions, fibromyalgia can be helped by a healthy diet, including the consumption of fermented foods such as yogurt and kefir to foster a healthy balance of gut flora in the intestines. Maintaining healthy intestinal flora are essential for those suffering from chronic health conditions because over 80% of the immune system is found in the gut. Boosting the immune system can assist a person fighting any health condition or disease.
