Let thy food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.. Famous words of Hippocrates, the Father of modern medicine. Before that it was believed that disease was punishment inflicted by the Gods. Today we know better , so let's do better. A whole, nutrient dense diet rich in vitamins and minerals are truly the best medicine you can have in your treasure chest. Organic will always be best since our bodies are already bombarded with so many toxins.
A very common deficiency that we see is B12. Some symptoms are :
- Extreme fatigue
- Attention deficit disorder
- Mood swings and restlessness
- Bleeding gums
- Sore mouth and tongue
- Violence and temper outbursts
- Numbness in hands and feet
Factors that demand the increased intake for B12 are many, a few are:
- Lap band surgery
- Worms and parasites
- Crohn's and coeliac disease
- Excessive alcohol intake and smoking
Even though B12 is only needed in micrograms on a daily basis it is so easy to need more just with something as simple as picking up Muttley’s worms. By eating more beef liver, sardines, wild caught salmon, eggs and feta cheese, we can naturally increased our B12. In some cases supplementation would be recommended if levels are severely low or when the secretion of intrinsic factor is insufficient.
