|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.

I have had sciatic pain for years! throwing hundreds of dollars for massages that only temporarily helped. Dr. Scharf understood sciatic and back pain personally and has helped me find a long term solution. I have less pain, more energy and a better understanding of how to manage my sciatic. This is the office to go to if you want long term relief.
