B1 Deficiency, it mimics so many diseases

I have known B1 (thiamine) to be such an important vitamin.  It is so involved with your health.

But then I found an educational video by Dr. Eric Berg, D.C. about what a deficiency of B1 will do.   It is very informative.

I think with so many people depleting B1 by using caffeine, sugar, medical drugs, processed foods etc. etc.  that this is important to know.   I can affect the conditions such as  lack of tears, restless leg syndrome, sleep apnea, and even memory problems.   But, etc. etc. etc.

Here is the video:

Drug Side Effects: Are they Minor?

We have all heard of the “possible side effects” of medications. Usually if I bring it up I get a standard “but drugs save lives”. I feel that you can always find an safe alternative that builds health, but people still take drugs and feel that they should,

The article below talks about the “minor side effects” and should be read by anyone who wants to take a drug.  Actually, they should also read about the drug they want to take on www.drugs.com. It has the pharmaceutical companies literature and you can make an informed decision.

Fibromyalgia and Neuropathy

I’ve often noticed a similarity between the symptoms of fibromyalgia and neuropathy.  I even knew someone who was diabnosed as having fibromyalgia who tried the remedy for neuropathy (WSN Nerve Support Formula) with good results.  I thought at the time that maybe she was misdiagnosed and really had neuropathy

Recently there was a study done on some people with small fiber poly neuropathy and half of them were found to have neuropathy.

Here is an article on Fibromyalgia which talks about these studies later in the article, and has a link to the actual study.

It would be nice to know that some people can get relief from their fibromyalgia by addressing it as neuropathy.    I know how debilitating fibromyalgia can be,

To your health!
