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:

Dental Work & Surgery Nerve Problems?

It is common for people to experience different nerve damage symptoms after dental work. This is especially true of dental surgery and implants.

During the procedure, the nerve can be damaged. Yes, it most probably will get better in a few months if it isn’t extensive damage.

But are you willing to put up with numbness, and pain, tingling, etc. for 6 months? Why not give your body a head start in restoring your nerve health.

Are you being sold “snake oil”?

I was watching a documentary about medical myths.   One really got my attention.

What is snake oil?  Snake oil is actually Chinese medicine.  It is created from a snake and used to help many things including sore muscles.  it appears that this was brought to American by the Chinese workers on the Trans Continental Road.  It was a huge back breaking job.  They used snake oil to help with their sore muscles.

It became popular.   But in the 1916 there was a salesman who was selling this.  Clark Stanley’s Snake Oil Liniment, the only Western produced snake oil known to have been examined.   It was tested and found not to include any snake oil. It a shoddy substitute.   He got arrested.

So the press had a field day and “snake oil” was now used to describe anything that  was deceptive telling people it would cure their ills when it wouldn’t.  I’ve even heard the term applied to the various alternative medicines available for health.

Why do I ask if you are being sold snake oil?  Well the body needs forty nutrients to be able to create and sustain health.  if you don’t have one of these, you can create deficiencies which result in 100s of chemical reactions not happening  So, we take vitamins and minerals to make sure we get what we need when we know our diet isn’t sufficient.   Fake food is in itself “snake oil”  as they promise to give you nutrition but fill the box with chemicals and additives not needed by the body.

But, what about your supplements?  Are you taking fake nutrition?  Are you taking Whole Food VItamins, food based that actually use food to give you what you need. Or are you taking “snake oil”?   Are you getting laboratory created similar sort of vitamins made of petrochemicals.

Health Benefits of Food

Have you noticed that most health articles are concerned with stopping a disease that the person has – or attempting to prevent a disease – which is actually stopping disease before it happens. And it all sounds scary.

What about we take our attention away from just fighting disease and start working towards health to create a healthy body.

Do you want to stop gum disease and decay, or just have healthy teeth?

Do you want to stop an infection after one starts, or just have a healthy immune system that prevents infections from happening?

The list of things that a healthy body creates goes on and on. 

The body runs on protein, carbohydrates and fats and 40 other nutrients that cannot be made in the body. These are 15 vitamins, 14 minerals, 10 amino acids & the essential fatty acids. The nutrients you need that cannot be made in the body all come from food.

What do you use to build a healthy body? Food. Sometimes if you can’t get enough of the nutrients you need from food, you might have to supplement. But you would do that with whole food supplements, not the artificial type that is made in a laboratory.

There are diets for overall health as well as diets for specific health issues. See below.  But addressing an issue and then continuing to create health eliminates the need for special diets in the future. 

You should eat for your health, not your taste buds.

Improve your diet & eat wisely – this is the best and least expensive form of “health insurance”. Building health is a lot more fun than trying to stop disease.

Toxins = Bad Health

There are so many ways that toxins can get into your body and disrupt the normal body functions.   Yes, you can breath it, you can ingest them, you can even get it through your skin.’

Wonder what is in your beauty products?  What is in that shaving cream?  What is in the make up or skin softener?  What about the cleaning products?

What about the food you eat?   Not only can it have lots of toxins from the way it was grown, but now most vegetables are genetically modified …. GMOs.

Start somewhere and start eliminating the toxins from constantly being used by the body instead of what it should be using for health.

Here’s an article on GMO in case you wonder about buying non-GMO products but think they are too expensive.  Think about how expensive bad health is.

Plant Medicine? What is “Aromotherapy”?

I’ve heard and seen things about Aromatherapy. I never paid much attention to it and felt it was creating nice odors that people wanted in their house or felt it relaxed them.   

Then I found out that in 1937, a french perfumer gave that name to essential oils which is actually traditional plant medicine.   

Now that was something I’d be interested in finding out about.  It is now called essential oils and is becoming popular again.  Plant medicine has been around for thousands of years and was the only medicine until the 1880s when the drug companies were formed to make pharmaceuticals.  

So what can plant medicine do?  A lot of things, and its safe and works well.

Why do the essences of the plant create change?  And what can it do?

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.

What Happens when Minor Drug Side Effects Turn Deadly? What is a Minor Drug Side Effect?

Big Pharma & Natural Remedies

I was reading a medical book from the mid 1800s. It was interesting to see the use of herbs and natural remedies. I do know that in 1880s the pharmaceutical companies started producing drugs in the laboratory and that it contained petroleum products.

Yes, really. Scientists discovered “petrochemicals” and the ability to create all kinds of chemicals from oil.

I also know that in 1920, in order to “standardize” the medical schools, a report was done and what happened was the standard and approved medical procedures where pharmaceutical drugs & surgery.

Here is an article on how that all came about. This tied it together. Big Pharma and the War Against Natural Cures.

What Creates Bad Health?

Sometimes reading about health challenges you get the idea that it is just something that happens and you have to be vigilant in order to catch the problem early enough to do something about it. Or you can read how it is genetic so there really isn’t anything you can do about?

True? I think not.

There are 3 ways to create bad health.

1) Put something into the body that will cause the body to malfunction. This can be toxins from the environment, the foods you eat and the air you breathe or added chemicals to cleaning supplies, tooth paste, cosmetics, etc. etc. etc. etc.

2) Not give the body what it needs to function properly. The body needs 40 nutrients every day that it cannot make. It has to come from the food and drink that is consumed. That is why we say to build health – eat for your health, not your taste buds.

3) Stress. No, don’t reach for a chemical fix, but stress produces too much cortisol, pushes too much insulin into the body, unbalances hormones and exhausts the adrenals, etc. etc.

Yes, there is something you can do about it. You can work on building good health. Actually, that is why this website was created.

” Concerned with the amount of degenerative diseases and other illnesses that occur due to nutritional deficiencies caused by faulty diet, www. mcvitamins.com was created in 1999.”
