Metals as a common trigger of inflammation resulting in non-specific symptoms: diagnosis and treatment
Comments are off for this post.
The multiple symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia resemble those described in patients suffering from autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA). It has been suggested that chronic metal-induced inflammation might play a role both in CFS and fibromyalgia as well as in ASIA. Three subjects with CFS and two with fibromyalgia were studied, all of whom suspected metal exposure as a trigger for their ill health. All patients except one were sensitized to metals present in their dental restorations. The remaining patient reacted to metals in his skull implant. The removal of sensitizing metals resulted in long-term health improvement. Nine healthy controls matched for gender and age showed only marginal reactivity to the metals tested.Download Full Article
