|Keeping Your Nerve System Healthy
| B-complex vitamins are necessary for normal functioning of the nerve system. B vitamins include thiamine(B1), riboflavin(B2), niacin B3), and pyridoxine (B6).
Thiamine is necessary to prevent beriberi (causing weight loss, impaired sensation, and pain and weakness in the arms and legs).
Riboflavin deficiency causes sensitivity to sunlight, glossitis (inflammation of the tongue), and swelling of the throat.
Niacin deficiency causes insomnia, weakness, aggression, and mental confusion.
Pyridoxine deficiency causes depression, anemia, and high blood pressure.
The B vitamins work together to promote health. Good sources of B vitamins include bananas, turkey, tuna, potatoes, and beer. Vitamin-and-mineral supplements are also good sources of the daily B-vitamin requirement.

Dear Dr. Peltier,
When I first came to see Dr. Peltier, I was having pain in my neck, lower back and hip sockets. I could hardly walk and it was difficult to stand for very long. So getting daily chores done was very painful. I saw improvement as the program progressed. I began a walking program in April of 09, and now I walk daily. I feel better than I have in years. I can get things done without pain, am stronger and have better balance. I highly recommend the program, it works.
