  • Special Report: Discover A New Treatment For People With Fibromyalgia Pain By Dr. Keith P. Lynch CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.comHello, I am Dr. Keith Lynch and I have been practicing in Charlottesville, Virginiasince 1998. I am one of six board certified Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractors forSherman College. What we do is we decompress the brain stem area without anytwisting, popping or cracking. I am also a member of the “Treating FibromyalgiaDiscussion Board” where there are over 700 doctors using these exact samemethods treating patients with Fibromyalgia.If you have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, you have probably seen over adozen doctors and they have ruled out MS. They have ruled out rheumatoidarthritis. They have ruled out lupus and now you have the diagnosis ofFibromyalgia. Since you are reading this report, either you or someone you lovehave been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and what I am here to share with youtoday is what makes us different from all those other doctors that you have seen forthis condition.First of all, we treat patients neurologically as well as metabolically and I am going©2011 Dr. Keith P. Lynch – All Rights Reserved. http://CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.com Page 1
  • Special Report: Discover A New Treatment For People With Fibromyalgia Pain By Dr. Keith P. Lynch CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.comto go over that for you. What we are going to talk about first is how we test andidentify metabolic problems and how we treat those. When we do our testing weleave no stone unturned to try to find the cause of your Fibromyalgia. Did you readthat? The cause of your Fibromyalgia.If you are like many of the Fibromyalgia patients I’ve treated, you’ve been to dozensof doctors. You were probably prescribed Amitriptyline or Neurontin. You areprobably taking Ambien or Clonazepam. You have probably taken numerous overthe counter medications and probably tried anti-depressants or anti-anxietymedication. Maybe you are on Lyrica ,an anti-seizure drug, it’s not the Fibromyalgiacure all. All these drugs are designed to do is stop your brain from feeling thesymptoms that you are receiving from your condition. In other words, we are justtrying to cover up the light on the dash board that is telling us something is wrong.Nobody’s identified the actual problem that is causing your Fibromyalgia condition.In our office we are willing to find the cause and we are going to do it through©2011 Dr. Keith P. Lynch – All Rights Reserved. http://CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.com Page 2
  • Special Report: Discover A New Treatment For People With Fibromyalgia Pain By Dr. Keith P. Lynch CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.comextensive testing. We are going to start by doing blood tests. These tests aregoing to help us find out what’s actually happening in your body. We are going todo a thyroid panel. We are going to do a complete metabolic panel. We will checkyour lipid panel and we will also do a CBC with auto differential. In other words, weare going to find out what your red blood cells and white blood cells are telling usabout what is happening in your body.Now you have probably had numerous blood tests. Let me tell you something,when you get your results back from Lab Corp or Quest Diagnostics, the referenceranges that they have are quite wide. Let’s take TSH for example. TSH stands forThyroid Stimulating Hormone. The reference range for that is 0.45 to 5.0. That’s areally wide range. Your optimal range for TSH is 1.8 to 3.0. So I would tell you,you need to run these tests and you need to know what the optimal levels are.Because that’s going to tell you what’s actually happening in your body. When youhave a chronic condition like Fibromyalgia it starts to affect all the systems in your©2011 Dr. Keith P. Lynch – All Rights Reserved. http://CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.com Page 3
  • Special Report: Discover A New Treatment For People With Fibromyalgia Pain By Dr. Keith P. Lynch CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.combody. That’s why you need to have these tests run.The other tests we are going to run are sensitivity tests. In other words, we need tofind out what you’re actually ingesting that is making your condition worse. Youdon’t know unless you test. We test for gluten intolerances. These tests includegluten, wheat, barley, oats, and rye. We also test for milk sensitivity, eggs, andsoy. You need to know if eating these things contributes to making your conditionworse.Here are some of the symptoms that are associated with these sensitivities,Chronic Fatigue or Chronic Pain. If youve already been diagnosed withFibromyalgia or think that you have Fibromyalgia, you already have ChronicFatigue and you already have Chronic Pain, frequent indigestion, bloating aftereating, constipation, diarrhea, and sores or ulcers in your mouth. Some peoplealso say they vomit often. We don’t really run into that too much. The only way to©2011 Dr. Keith P. Lynch – All Rights Reserved. http://CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.com Page 4
  • Special Report: Discover A New Treatment For People With Fibromyalgia Pain By Dr. Keith P. Lynch CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.comknow if these sensitivities are affecting your condition is to test for them.The next test we would do is adrenal stress index. This is a salivary test similar toa DNA test. Your adrenals are two small glands that sit right back on top of yourkidneys. Your adrenals and your thyroid are very important to your endocrinesystem. Your endocrine system tells your body what type of energy levels you aregoing to have. So if you have Chronic Pain and you have Chronic Fatigue and youhave been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia you already know that you have an issuewith this. Do you know what is causing it yet? I doubt it. You need to have thesetests run to know what is causing this. If you have issues with your adrenal glandsyou are also probably going to have insomnia and blood sugar issues becausethese are the types of things that the adrenal hormones cortisol affect. Cortisollevels go up when your body is under stress.The next thing we will be testing are immune panels, in other words your immune©2011 Dr. Keith P. Lynch – All Rights Reserved. http://CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.com Page 5
  • Special Report: Discover A New Treatment For People With Fibromyalgia Pain By Dr. Keith P. Lynch CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.comsystem. Now you immune system has two parts to it, it’s got your TH1 and yourTH2. Let me make that really simple for us. TH1 are your T cells, these are theattacker cells or the killer cells, natural killer cells that they are called. These arelike soldiers that go out, find a problem in the body and attack it. Your TH2dominance is your B cells or your regulatory cells. These are like the sergeantsand generals; these are the ones that tell the attacker cells what to do and when tostop.If you are having a problem with your immune system, then it is literally attackingyour body. It could be attacking your brain. It could be attacking your joints likewhat we see in rheumatoid arthritis. It could be attacking your thyroid like what wesee in Hashimotos. Or an auto immune condition where the body actually attacksthe thyroid tissue. These things have to be tested. We’ve got to find out which oneof those if either is a problem. If you’ve got a problem with TH1 that means youhave an active antigen happening in your body. What is an active antigen? An©2011 Dr. Keith P. Lynch – All Rights Reserved. http://CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.com Page 6
  • Special Report: Discover A New Treatment For People With Fibromyalgia Pain By Dr. Keith P. Lynch CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.comactive antigen is a yeast, a bacteria, a virus, or it could be heavy metals. It couldactually be foods that are passing through your intestines. These things have to beidentified and they have to be addressed. If you are having an auto immunecondition that’s the first thing that needs to be addressed, everything else gets puton the back burner because auto immune conditions trump everything else whenyou are trying to treat this type of a condition.The next thing we do is access the function of your gut. We test for H Pylori.H Pylori is a bacterium that can live in the gut and when it gets out of balance itcreates all kinds of gut problems. The other thing that we test is intestinalpermeability. Intestinal permeability has to do with your intestines being like ascreen and what that screen does is it only allows small digested particles of foodto enter into the blood stream so that they can be absorbed and utilized by thebody. When there is an issue of intestinal permeability or a leaky gut syndrome,what happens is that screen of the intestines inflames, it opens up. Things that©2011 Dr. Keith P. Lynch – All Rights Reserved. http://CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.com Page 7
  • Special Report: Discover A New Treatment For People With Fibromyalgia Pain By Dr. Keith P. Lynch CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.comshould not be able to pass through start passing through. This can create all kindsof problems in the body. We need to know if that’s an issue, because that needs tobe addressed. That could be causing an auto immune condition in your body.The next thing we test for are nerve transmitters. If you have a decrease inneurotransmitters in your brain, that means you have a decrease in acetylcholine,dopamine, serotonin, or melatonin. And if you have an imbalance or a decrease inthese neurotransmitters, it can actually increase the amount of pain that your bodyis feeling.Your hormone levels will also be checked. Hormone levels can become out ofbalance due to a lot of these chronic conditions and that makes your conditionworse. Women often times have estrogen and progesterone ratios that get out ofbalance creating polycystic ovarian disease or PCOS. These are the types ofthings that make you more susceptible to cancers and tumors. They make youmore susceptible to heart disease. All this needs to be assessed to find out what’s©2011 Dr. Keith P. Lynch – All Rights Reserved. http://CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.com Page 8
  • Special Report: Discover A New Treatment For People With Fibromyalgia Pain By Dr. Keith P. Lynch CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.comcausing your condition, which direction is it heading and what needs to beaddressed to get these things cleared out. Did you know that if you have a problemwith your intestines it may not be clearing excess estrogen from your body, creatingimbalances between estrogen and progesterone? Do you see how all thesesystems are intertwined? If you don’t look at everything you don’t know what youare dealing with; often times that’s what we see with our Fibromyalgia patients. Wecheck for inflammation with our tests. Inflammation is often found by finding highlevels of CRP or C reactive protein in your body.We also look for homocysteine levels to be raised in the body. When there is achronic condition and chronic pain like what we see in Fibromyalgia, inflammation isalmost always up, we need to find out why. These other tests I mentioned, theseare the things that are going to tell us what is causing inflammation and the locationof the inflammation.©2011 Dr. Keith P. Lynch – All Rights Reserved. http://CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.com Page 9
  • Special Report: Discover A New Treatment For People With Fibromyalgia Pain By Dr. Keith P. Lynch CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.comGlutathione is an antioxidant. Glutathione and superoxide dismutase or SOD aretwo compounds that if measured they can tell us exactly what your cellular healthis. Your body’s health is dependent on every cells health. So the barriers or thelining of the blood brain barrier level in your lungs and in your intestines, if you havelow levels of glutathione you are going to have permeability. You are going to haveincreased inflammation. You are going to have chronic pain. This is one of the firstthings that we may use as a natural treatment modality to start bringing thingsunder control, putting out the fires of inflammation in your body that are causingyour Fibromyalgia pain.We also do neurological treatment or brain based therapy. Let me explain howthat’s done. We do extensive neurological testing to find out which parts of thebrain may be under firing or over firing. In other words, there’s an actual speed orrate of frequency of firing for each part of the brain and we will be testing for whichareas have a decreased frequency of firing. Once we know that,we can actually©2011 Dr. Keith P. Lynch – All Rights Reserved. http://CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.com Page 10
  • Special Report: Discover A New Treatment For People With Fibromyalgia Pain By Dr. Keith P. Lynch CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.comget these areas to start working properly. How do we do that? We may usevibration therapy. Vibration is taken in from the body, brought up the back part ofthe brain into the central part of the brain and then back down to the cerebellum. Ifyou have a problem with one of those feedback loops, if there is a decrease infrequency of firing, that’s not going to happen. It is going to cause the posturalmuscles in the spine and around the joints to lock up causing you joint pain. Weuse vibrational therapy, auditory stimulation, visual stimulation, olfactory stimulationand caloric stimulation. All of this is designed to increase the frequency of firing ofthe brain because when the brain starts working right everything else in the bodystarts working right.We also use laser therapy in our office. The laser system that we use is theErchonia Cold Laser. The Erchonia Cold Laser is used by professional athletes likeLance Armstrong, the New York Jets, the Kansas City Chiefs, even the USgovernment; the Army uses the Erchonia Cold Laser. Why? Because it decreases©2011 Dr. Keith P. Lynch – All Rights Reserved. http://CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.com Page 11
  • Special Report: Discover A New Treatment For People With Fibromyalgia Pain By Dr. Keith P. Lynch CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.cominflammation, it reduces pain and it speeds healing. We also perform detoxificationtherapy in our office. We use the EB Pro. You have probably heard about it, itsounds like a foot bath. There is an actual water bath that you put your feet in. Byputting your feet in the water, it creates your connection to an ionic field. That ionicfield increases the amount of ATP available to your body so that it can flush outtoxins and inflammation. This makes a huge difference for your treatment. I knowbecause I use it personally.Once we have run the necessary tests to find out what is happening in your case. itis like taking a puzzle out and putting all the pieces on the floor in front of you. Youstart seeing which things are priorities and we start treating the highest priority first.Remember when I said earlier if you have an auto immune condition that’s one ofour major priorities? We have got to take care of that ASAP. As we start to makethose changes in your body what are we going to do with the testing that we’ve©2011 Dr. Keith P.

  • Special Report: Discover A New Treatment For People With Fibromyalgia Pain By Dr. Keith P. Lynch CharlottesvilleFibroDoc.comdone? We are going to re-test. We are going to treat, test and re-test so that weknow what’s happening and how quickly your body is going to heal. These are allvery important things to know. What you need to do now is you need to ask yourselfcertain questions.How has your Fibromyalgia affected :Your Relationships? Your Finances? Y our Family? Your sleep?Most people when I sit down with them and they have Fibromyalgia tell me how itall started. Everything was fine until a certain point and then they start telling meabout when these symptoms started. Then the symptoms got worse and then thesymptoms spread and now more issues are appearing. They go to their doctor,their doctor comes in and says, “Mary tell me what’s happening.”Mary says, “Oh I got this going on and this is new and this is new”, and they lookback through the chart and they go, “Oh, you’ve got Fibromyalgia don’t you? I betthis is a flair-up of that Fibromyalgia”. And you never have these tests run. Youneed to have these tests run because you have think about, where is your life going©2011 Dr. Keith P.
