Fibromyalgia and nutritional lithium

The use of lithium carbonate was discussed in the medical journals in the early 90’s by Murry A. Taber M.D. He cited several case studies where the fibromyalgia patients experienced prolonged relief of their muscular and joint symptom after taking lithium carbonate.

Now before you get all excited about taking lithium, we have to remember that it is a closely controlled prescription drug that also can have a lot of “side effects”.

The reason that I bother discussing it at all is that there is a nutritional product that is plant bound lithium that is available from Biotics Research in Texas (no, I have no financial investment in that company).

If this can deliver some of the relief discussed in the journals and the letters, then perhaps we should look into it.
