纤维肌痛综合征 (FMS) 的原因很复杂，并且涉及人体的许多系统。中枢神经系统、免疫系统和内分泌系统通常存在一定程度的功能障碍。
Treatment of Fibromyalgia Syndrome with Traditional Chinese Medicine
Understanding Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) is crucial due to its complexity of possible causes as well as its comprehensive involvement of many systems of the human body. There is usually some level of dysfunction in the central nervous, immunologic, and endocrine systems which is superimposed upon the malfunction of many organs. In short, conventional medicine has not yet fully understood either the etiology or the pathophysiology of FMS. Thus, it has been a challenge to satisfactorily manage and cure FMS.
Today, both physicians and patients have experienced tremendous frustration from the poor treatment outcomes with the conventional methods, as well as the enormous economic burden incurred by ongoing medical costs and loss of income. Even the insurance industry has been severely challenged by the mighty costs generated by this condition. This predicament has created the need to conceptualize a new approach to provide a better method to manage FMS. The objective of TCM treatment principles is to create healthier homeostasis by identifying and correcting the body’s imbalances at different stages. Further, it also responds to increased imbalance needs, which were caused by the disease process.
