Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition engulfed by widespread pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance, and depression... Meanwhile, there are no successful medications to treat the condition without adverse reaction or side effects. Action research investigates herbs as a remedy for treating fibromyalgia. An exploration of its effectiveness will be evaluated, and whether or not it causes adverse reactions and side effects. In addition, the project will address herbs interaction with pharmaceutical drugs and other herbs. It is hypothesized that herbs are better and more effective than drugs. The results will show that there are many effective herbs that can be used to treat fibromyalgia. However, some does cause side effects, will interact to certain medications and other herbs, and can be deadly if not used properly. In conclusion, herbs promote better overall body health based on its natural properties and are more effective than drugs (Reader's Digest, 2008).
