    Default Cheap, Effective Relief From Fibromyalgia (and ME/CFS) Found? Thiamine (B1)

    Is simple and cheap relief from ME/CFS and FM possible? If the experience of one blogger is representative it may be. National Fibromyalgia Association founder and ProHealth blogger Karen Lee Richards had fibromyalgia for almost 25 years before she stumbled on a simple and cheap remedy that worked for her.

    Has a piece of the missing puzzle been hiding in plain sight all this time? It’s too early to say that but some people are finding relief.
    A very small Italian fibromyalgia ‘study’ caught caught her eye. Three fibromyalgia patients reported decreases in fatigue and reductions in pain after taking high-dose thiamine (vitamin B-1). Karen contacted the Italian authors of the report, did some research on her own, and followed up on the small study with her own personal trial.

    Interesting research!! Thiamine (Vitamin B1) deficiencies have also been found in Alzheimer's and diabetic patients. The therapy used in this research involved taking between 600 mg to 1,500 mg of B1 per day--depending on body weight. B vitamins are synergistic in that they work more effectively as a group. B1 and B2 are special cohorts and occur in equal amounts in nature. In fact, some of the superior B vitamin supplements contain equal amounts of B1 and B2. So, if I were to take 600 to 1,500 mg. of B1 for an extended period of time (a week or more), I'd make sure to get plenty of B2 and the other B vitamins too!! Also, magnesium is critical to the effectiveness of B1. So, before I would load up on B1, I'd make sure my magnesium levels were adequate. Great research. Thanks for posting!!
