|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 got injured at work and my employer sent me to their company doctor. The company doctor did not listen to me and sent me home without providing any treatment other than a bottle of motrin. The medication did not help my low back pain. I knew I needed additional treatment by a specialist. A co-worker who had a similar injury told me about the doctors at Inland Empire Spine & Rehabilitation Center. The doctors did a thorough exam and x-rays and found the problem that was causing me all of my low back pain. After several weeks of chiropractic treatment, I was able to return to work and resume my normal activities. I highly suggest that anyone with back injuries call the doctors at Inland Empire Spine & Rehabilitation so they can help you too.
