Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Linked to Liver

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Linked to Liver

According to research by Dr. Scott Rigden, MD, presented in his book, Liver Detoxification, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia are linked to liver health.  He conducted a study of over two hundred patients suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome and/or fibromyalgia.

He found that eighty percent of all sufferers of these two disorders had significant liver impairment.  As patients’ symptoms improved, so did the results of liver function tests—indicating a correlation between liver stress and severity of symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.

My son at 12 was very sick with this and they always gave him liver exrays because it got large. Back then we didn't get much info as they do now. You stayed in bed because you couldn't really do anything. Going a few feet to bath room over did it.

Hmm,that's interesting.And I might add something else too,I'm not a doctor but I think it goes further than that.....not just being linked to liver stress,but I think it's related to not getting enough sleep,as in insomnia.That's where it all starts,once you don't get enough sleep for a very long time(aka your whole life),everything starts deteriorating after that.
