Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for July 03, 2006

A while back I made the discovery about the link between B1 and the myelin sheaths that protect the nerves. Today, I discover what the myelin sheaths are made out of. Sounds exactly like the feelings on the top of my head…

Nervous System Support

Vitamin B1 also plays a key role in support of the nervous system, where it permits healthy development of the fat-like coverings which surround most nerves (called myelin sheaths). In the absence of vitamin B1, these coverings can degenerate or become damaged. Pain, prickly sensations, and nerve deadening are nerve-related symptoms that can result from vitamin B1 deficiency.

Approximately 30% of your brain is composed of lecithin. Of the insulating and protective sheaths that surround your brain, spine, and thousands of miles of nerves, lecithin accounts for two-thirds of their composition; and of all the muscles in your body, your heart – the hardest muscle to fatigue – has the highest lecithin content.

Prickly sensations? I’ll add lecithin to my daily vitamins…

This sure sounds familiar to me and yet all of the doctors so far have ignored it.
