Fibrositis syndrome is a clinically defined entity characterized by spontaneous pain, particularly in the lumbar and cervical regions and more rarely in other moving sections, multiple tendomyosis, tendonitis and tendonitis insertion, as well as a broad range of functional syndromes, vegetative symptoms and psychological disorders. The path of the disease is very variable; its onset can be slow to progress or acute, initially presenting a similarly localised clinical image to a lumbar or cervical condition, and eventually or in hops, showing a worsening followed by symptom generalization.

Various causes are likely to be instrumental in causing the syndrome of fibrositis. The most significant ones are emotional stress, contributing to muscle tension and insertion tendinitis due to symptoms of anxiety, depression, etc. Somatic variables, such as spinal column malposition, can also lead to clinical image manifestation. From the point of view of differential diagnosis, so-called secondary fibrositis syndromes should be defined; they can evolve through infections and endocrinopathy within the context of inflammatory rheumatic conditions.

Treat fibrositis with essential oils

Basic blend – massage

Massage the following blend gently but thoroughly into the affected area:

Rosemary 2 drops
Lavender 1 drop
Chamomile roman 1 drop
Cardamom 1 drop

Blend together and then dilute by adding 3–5 drops to each teaspoon (5 mL) of carrier oil.

It’s helpful to apply this body oil after a cabbage compress has been applied: iron a large outer leaf from a green cabbage (see page 304) to release the enzymes and apply to the affected area while still warm. Leave on the area for 15 minutes.

Also use the combination of essential oils above diluted in a little carrier oil in warm baths, using 4 drops per bath.
