Dr. Nikolas Hedberg is a chiropractic internist from North Carolina, who wrote an excellent article in The Original Internist for the March 2009 issue. By definition, Fibromyalgia cannot have an underlying cause, or it should be called pseudo-Fibromyalgia. We often find yeast imbalance, food allergies, thyroid and adrenal deficiencies, and a number of other underlying causes for this constellation of symptoms. Dr. Hedberg describes a striking case of heavy metal toxicity in a similar case, that completely resolved with DMSA chelation therapy. Lead and Mercury were the biggest culprits.
