Magnesium and Fluoride Provide Clues to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and Gulf War Syndrome

  [ 33 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]

Layander, J.A.,

"A Nutrient Toxin Interaction Theory of the Etiology and Pathogenesis of Chronic Pain-Fatigue Syndromes: Part I and II."

This paper by a graduate student at the University of New Mexico proposed the theory that CFS, fibromyalgia and Gulf War syndrome share a common underlying etiology at the subcellular level: a deficiency of magnesium and an excess of fluoride. The author argues that these syndromes present a growing world- wide public health problem due to decreasing magnesium intake in diet and increasing exposure to fluoride compounds in industry, agriculture, medicine and personal hygiene products. Hormones make women more vulnerable to the condition, he argues, and stress and various other minerals also affect the interaction of magnesium and fluoride.

The author argues that, if the theory is correct, effective treatment would include increasing intake of magnesium, eliminating exposure to fluoride (including fluoridated water, certain types of seafood, gelatin, and many toothpastes and mouthwashes), adding other specific vitamins and dietary supplements, eliminating alcohol, managing pain and lifestyle aggressively to reduce stress, and maintaining a regular exercise program.
