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.
