Yes, I have been talking about thiamine again. This time with Dr. Kurt Woeller, as part of his series: Functional Medicine Doc Talk. We covered a range of topics from the chemistry to the clinic and everything in between. Importantly, we discussed why most of us need a little more thiamine that than we are getting from diet alone.

If you have a chronic health issue that seems intractable, consider the possibility that underlying nutrient deficiencies like thiamine are involved. Thiamine is a key metabolic regulator controlling a large portion of how we convert the foods we eat into the energy our cells need to function. When thiamine is low, energetic capacity and the ability to utilize and synthesize ATP wanes and along with it. The result is all sorts of compensatory reactions. Those reactions manifest as the symptoms of many of the modern illnesses that seem endemic these days – meaning that the root cause of these conditions is simply poor energetic capacity, or rather, insufficient thiamine. Could a simple vitamin hold the key to better health? Possibly.

If you or someone you love is suffering from a chronic and seemingly untreatable illness, have a listen and consider thiamine. If you would like more information about thiamine, consider: Thiamine Deficiency Disease, Dysautonomia, and High Calorie Malnutrition and/or read any of the hundreds of articles on this site.
