2020 definitely taught us the value of freedom. Freedom of choice – to move out, move freely, eat well. But most importantly, it taught us the value of our health and wellbeing.
I was talking to a client of mine regarding her health. She mentioned how the whole of 2020 has affected her mentally, emotionally and physically.

I wanted her to feel this way, optimal food and nutrition helps; it is always good to check how our body’s vitals are. I asked her to get her vitals checked and the poor thing had her vitals low. Vitamin and mineral count was bad because of anxious eating,especially thiamine which is B1 and B12. No matter what she ate, her digestion was poor, her body rapidly stored excess energy/fat.
There are a couple of symptoms of B1 deficiency that one needs to be mindful about.
You stagger while speaking.
You’re often confused and misinterpret things
You feel dizzy often
You’re often more and more irritable
Short term memory loss or inability to recall things easily
High heart rate, frequently
Massive changes in mood
High levels of water retention in the body, around your eyes, ankles, lower belly, fingers.
It doesn’t mean anytime this occurs you get alarmed and start popping pills, rather enhance or balance your diet. There are always ways to enhance the intake of B1 through food, naturally as even synthetically, if your body isn’t ready, it won’t absorb the vitamin. Know more about it here.
One of the biggest sources of B1 include grains. However, most grains are glutinous, which for some can be an irritant. Here are some gluten free sources:
