Fibromyalgia and Fermented Foods

Researchers in Montreal have shown, for the first time, that there are alterations in the bacteria in the gastrointestinal tracts of people with fibromyalgia. The research was done on 156 individuals, 77 of whom suffer from fibromyalgia. Each person studied was tested and gave stool, blood, saliva, and urine samples. These were compared with those of a healthy control group, some of whom lived in the same house as the fibromyalgia patients or were their parents, offspring, or siblings. They found 20 different species of bacteria in either greater or are lesser quantities in the microbiomes of participants suffering from the disease than in the healthy control group. . .
