Sinthia Hoque:- Olivia Munn, 40, activist and actress reveals a medical condition that she has been going through in an exclusive interview with People on Monday. The actress had told them about an autoimmune disorder called fibromyalgia, “a condition characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues” and it can be triggered by stress.
Unfortunately, the disorder has no cure but symptoms can be alleviated with the help of medications and the reduction of stress. In the interview, Munn mentions, “I wasn’t really sure what was going on with me. I was going through a lot of different ailments for years and not knowing what was happening”. Her diagnosis came after working with five different doctors at UCLA. Munn who now requires to go through multiple changes in her daily routine and lifestyle also mention to People, “I had to change my wellness routine pretty significantly. I had to be super thoughtful about what I put into my body”. “I had to start eating gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free; I had to cut out a lot of things that I was used to having every day and things that I really loved”.
Out of the many suggestions given to her by the doctors, Munn recalls her favourite one being, “You need to really work on your gut health, but the most important thing that I can tell you is that whatever you eat, you need to really love it”. “It’s not just about eating the healthy things and you’re not liking it. You have to find what you love to eat and drink because that will make a difference, because all the research has shown that when you’re happy, you create chemicals that are good for your whole body and your gut health as well”, though tough decisions and changes need to be made for the X-Men star, she knows the decision is very clear; to make these changes in order to battle this ongoing and incurable disorder.
