CFS and Gastrointestinal Parasites

One study of a group of patients with chronic fatigue found that 28% were infected with the parasite G. lamblia; and over two-thirds of these were relieved of fatigue and related myalgic symptoms after their protozoan infection was properly treated.1

Other common intestinal parasites that can trigger symptoms of fatigue include E. histolytica and Blastocytis hominis. Various routes of contamination by parasites are possible. The Communicable Disease Center of the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare reports that 90% of G. Lamblia infections it encounters are traced to contaminated water or exposure to diaper-age children attending day care centers.
2 In 1993, over 400,000 people in Milwaukee became ill after drinking from an urban water supply contaminated with Cryptosporidium.3 Increasing worldwide travel--a record 52.5 million Americans flew across international borders last year alone4--coupled with rising immigration into the United States, is also causing a significant increase in the spread and incidence of parasitic infections. This growing problem is compounded by a lack of public awareness, which results in insufficient testing for many common symptoms of parasites.3

The Comprehensive Parasitology Test identifies parasitic infection and microbial and yeast status in the gastrointestinal tract, allowing precise and effective treatment of infections and imbalances.
