Hi Guys n Gals,
Reading a topical subject "sugar" in Sugar Blues by William Dufty. He talks about Beriberi, and no, apparently it isn't a tropical disease, but a disease caused by a refined diet and sugar.
I have been a sugar freak since the 70's, started out life with sherbert. It also mentions tea and coffee.
It days that a lack of B1 Thiamine is prevelent. Last night I had a teaspoon of marmite on toast for the B bits and a glass of milk to relax me before I went to bed. And this is no lie, I had the best and first pain free night for about 7 years.
Have a look at this website, I have pretty much most of the symptoms and it mentions Fibromyalgia and TMJ and IBS....it doesn't take long to read . Just thought it might help.
If the link doesn't work type in
Do you have beriberi Bill sardie
At the very least I hope you find it interesting.
