The effects of nutritional supplements on the symptoms of fibromyalgia (FM) & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

  [ 238 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Dykman KD, Tone C, Ford C, Dykman RA • www.ProHealth.com • January 20, 1998


This article reports the results of a within-subject design. Fifty
subjects with a physician diagnosis of fibromyalgia (FM)
and/or chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) were interviewed using a
structured interview from. Each subject was interviewed
initially, and again nine months later (follow-up). Subjects
had, on their own, consumed nutritional supplements including
freeze-dried aloe vera gel extract; a combination of
freeze-dried aloe vera gel extract and additional
plant-derived saccharides; freeze-dried fruits and vegetables
in combination with the saccharides; and a formulation of
dioscorea complex containing the saccharides and a
vitamin/mineral complex. With medical treatments,
approximately 25 percent of FM patients improve, but the
beneficial effects of medical treatment rarely persist more
than a few months. All subjects in this study had received
some form of medical treatment prior to taking the nutritional
supplements, but none with enduring success. Nutritional
supplements resulted in a remarkable reduction in initial
symptom severity, with continued improvement in the period
between initial assessment and the follow-up. Further research
is needed to verify these results, specifically crossover
designs in well- defined populations.
