Out? – Could it be 'B' Vitamin Deficiency?

Pain – Would You Rather Live With It or Without It?
Its what most of us have too much of. Coping with day to day
tasks and problems can sometimes be overwhelming especially
when the body is out of balance.
If I could
run the healthcare system, I would make everyone try a good B-vitamin
before ever allowing them to take a prescription anti-depressant.
(By good, I do not mean what is sold at discount stores or at supermarkets.)
Look at the
following signs of B-vitamin deficiency:
anxiety, insecurity, or highly emotional state.
- Wake up
at night and cant get back to sleep.
- Moody or
tense, cant relax.
- Mind races
or excessive worry.
lifestyle choices make us burn B-vitamins. I find that supplementing
small doses of the best quality B-vitamins in the correct ratios
makes most people feel better to the point that they are happier,
less stressed and sleeping well.
B vitamins are the phosphorylated form from Biotics Research
these are very usable by the body and come in several
different ratios tailored to specific metabolic issues. My other
favorite Bs are food based, such as New Chapters.
These tend to be a little more expensive, but most people
find that they work so well that it is worth the price.
nutrient I would have people try (if I were running things) is magnesium.
Many of us are deficient in this essential mineral as it is hard
to get in the average American diet.
deficiency signs include:
- Low energy
other issues and remedies that will effect and/or help our stress
levels, but the point here is that there are 2 very common deficiencies
that effect many people. I always promote fixing a deficiency or
underlying problem rather than just fixing a symptom. Fixing a deficiency
helps promote long-lasting health which is what I think should
be a priority of any health practice.
