Reducing inflammation/vasoconstrtion the answer??

In looking at the "big picture", isn't the main goal to reduce the inflammation or whatever is causing vasoconstriction (be it allergies, toxins, etc) in our bodies?  Other than gluccocoticoids (prednisone and others...which can cause bad side effects), to "open-up" blood vessels and/or reduce inflammation, isn't this the best way to tackle these illnesses?

I appreciate your input!

FMS is not an inflammatory disease.  Yes, it is important to treat allergens, toxins, bacteria and viruses that are in our bodies, as well as support our immune system.  Vasoconstriction is a theory which they are researching, but we do not know that this is the cause of either.

We have information in our Health Pages on treating these illnesses that is based upon what doctors have used themselves.  Dr. Nicolson is who discovered what GWI was, after his daughter returned home with CFS, which he and his wife both came down with.

Until they come up with diagnostic tests and discover from research what causes these diseases, we can only treat symptoms.  

Take care.
