Miracle transformation happens after a day or two of Vitamin B complex and Vitamin C. You may decide to tidy your desk.

Einstein favoured a messy desk

Mental hospitals were once full of folks thought insane. Turns out lots were just short of essential Vitamins

So if you - or the folks around you - suffer from irritability, poor concentration, anxiety, fatigue, restlessness, apathy and depression - maybe you need Vitamins, and maybe you need different kinds of food from the kind you eat now.
A vitamin B 12 deficiency can produce psychosis, severe memory loss, impaired abstract thinking skills, mental confusion, delusions, hallucinations and even brain and spinal cord degeneration (causing numbness).
Low blood levels of the vitamin are found in one-third hospitalized psychiatric patients suffering from depression and dementia, according to a Denmark study.

Forgetfulness: In addition, a B12 deficiency may inhibit the brains use of glucose, hinder production of acetylcholine, which is vital to brain and memory function.

Sanity restored: Folic acid, a B vitamin found in leafy greens, prevents irritability and forgetfulness; plus, it partners with B12 in the brains synthesis of acetylcholine.
Old folks at high risk: In one case, cited in Nutrition and the Brain . 67 percent of patients admitted to a psychogeriatric ward were deficient in folate.

Dementia, dermatitis and diarrhea

Dementia, dermatitis and diarrhea - the 'three ds" of vitamin deficiency. Vitamins are things the body can’t make. You have to eat the right things or take a supplement . If you don’t get the Vitamins you need you live with irritability, poor concentration, anxiety, fatigue, restlessness, apathy and depression. If you drink a lot of alcohol you increase vitamin deficiency risk.

People die of vitamin shortages: The people most at risk are the very poor, the very young, breast feeding mothers, the very old, fast-growing children and those who live on diets of junk food; or a tea and toast” diet. Or the Coca-Cola, chips and pizza diet.

Epidemics: People in institutions - prisons, orphanages and mental hospitals, soldiers and people on long sea voyages, once died in millions due to vitamin deficiency. Because you can eat all the food in the world, but if lack vitamins, you die, or go a bit mad. And your children may be born with spina bifida or cleft palate.

People who don’t eat meat face higher risk: In short almost anyone - who for whatever reason runs short of these essential trigger-chemicals can sink into depression and apparent mental illness.

Do you have Pellagra or Beri beri, or Scurvy

Do the checklist. Answer yes a whole lot of times and you may have subclinial Pellagra or Beri beri, or Scurvy, or all three.

Mental hospitals were once full of folks thought insane.

Turns out lots were just short of essential Vitamins.

In most cases a miracle transformation happens after a day or two of Vitamin B complex and Vitamin C.


Dr. Christiaan Eijkman won the Nobel Prize fro the discovery of the human need for vitamins

Millions died of vitamin shortages before a Nobel Prize winner got a gong for disovery of vitamins

Those who drink too much alcohol increase their risk.

Fertile women may also have a higher vitamin need at different times in the monthly cycle.

Over 100 years ago Dr. Christiaan Eijkman, an expert in the then new field of bacteriology was sent to the Dutch East Indies in 1887; to Java to find out why prisoners were dying and ailing of an “infection”, but was unsuccessful.

The chicken factor: One day Eijkman saw chickens - who fed on the garbage from the hospital and the prison - moved in a jerky way like the patients and he wondered if they might be suffering from the same germ. Then for a few months they got better. Then they got worse again.

Steve Jobs had a messy desk. This supports Einstein's theory on desks. Alas, Jobs died of pancreatic cancer

How to get smarter overnight - take B1 - thiamine

Rats trained to get through a maze were divided into two groups, one given a nutritionally complete diet and the other a diet totally lacking in B1. When the rats were tested days later, the group on the good diet sped through in an average 22 seconds, while the BI-deprived rats took 55 seconds, almost three times as long.

Rapid recovery: However, putting the deprived rats on a diet rich in B induced a remarkable memory recovery and ability to run through the maze.

Some people are so dang clever they look insane to the rest of the population. Like, say Mark Twain. Another nut with a messy desk.

Diet of polished white rice can make you sick:

Following up on this, Eijkman discovered that the month before and during their improvement, the food they were eating contained a good deal of un-polished, brown rice. Their diet included the residue of what was fed some prisoners at a nearby jail. Then that stopped and the chickens returned to the garbage that included only polished rice. Could there be something about the rice? Following this lead, the doctor came to as sort-of-right sort-of-wrong answer: The rice, he thought, might have a toxic agent, but it was counteracted by whatever was in the brown husk. Ejikman was later awarded the 1929 Nobel Prize in Medicine.

Discarded part of the rice contained the nutrient thiamin

Dr Funk followed up in 1911, and proposed the idea of vital amines - things the body needed - later shortened to vitamins.

14 days of thiamine shortage enough to send you stir-crazy: The bodys thiamine reserve is limited and deficiency may appear within 14 days with a thiamine free diet. This was found around the world - an illness which was really a shortahe of thiamine. It was called Pellegra in Italy.

Pellegra Spring insanity: A Georgian farmer complaining of weight loss, great blisters on his hands and arms, and melancholy every spring for the previous 15 years was recognized to be suffering from pellagra.

Alabama insane asylum: This dark place reported diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia and even death in multiple inmates. In the South it was found in poor and institutionalized populations on a diet of corn and fat pork

Prisons, orphanages, and asylums:. Eight US states from 1907 through 1911 recorded 15,870 cases of pellagra with a 39% fatality rate. In South Carolina alone in 1912, there were 30,000 cases with 12,000 deaths.

Not a germ: In 1914, the US Surgeon General sent Dr. Joseph Goldberger, a physician in the Public Health Service, south to investigate the cause of pellagra. He looked at the diet eaten by the poorest Southerners, especially mill workers, tenant farmers, and institutionalized persons. He was able to create Pellagra by changing the diet. Goldberger sought for many years to promote better nutrition, a campaign that pit him against those who wanted to spend as little money as possible. In the 1920s, researchers found that brewer's yeast could prevent the disease.
