More specifically, you want help with Flight or Fight Adrenal Stress and Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)?
hey guys I’m back and we’re going to talk about the flight or fight mechanism in vitamin b1 one of my favorite vitamins let’s just start with something called the autonomic nervous system what is that this is the system that adapts the body in the body’s organs to its environment it works behind the scenes and it’s constantly making adjustments so if your environment is stressful or you’re going to sleep or you’re eating or you’re going out into the cold your body’s going to adapt to that environment now there’s two main divisions of the autonomic nervous system there’s actually a third one I’m not gonna get into it you have the parasympathetic which is rest and digest and this operates in safe mode when everything is safe you’re calm you’re relaxed but as soon as you go through stress it kicks over here into this other system which is the sympathetic nervous system completely different kind of the opposite functions this prepares you for stress now the autonomic nervous system goes throughout the entire body in different connections to the the nerves in the back the nerves in the lower spine and even in the brainstem so in the brainstem you have basic functions of survival heart rate breathing hunger satiety flight-or-fight which is basically running away from a tiger or fighting the tiger okay and then reproduction so nowadays we’re not actually being chased by a tiger that was long ago however mentally we are being chased by a tiger very similar reactions the only problem is there’s no tiger in the room so if you’re under stress for a long time you start to become sympathetic dominant and this affects your sleep the quality of sleep you are no longer in safe mode now one of the most common for symptoms is anxiety nervousness can’t relax when it gets severe you can go into panic mode panic attacks that is definitely sympathetic dominant nightmares so when these symptoms become chronic it’s basically the failure of the sympathetic nervous system to keep up because normally what happens is that you you kick in the stress mode and then when the stress is done this system kicks in to help you recover now what’s interesting about this system is this is an active system you’re something your body that actively is trying to calm you down like when you’re sleeping for example or let’s say you exercise and you get your pulse rate really high and then you stop working out this system kicks in there and works hard to push down you can kind of look at it like a like a wave a push down wave to push down the heart right to calm the nervous system down to help you get into deep sleep okay but when you’re sympathetic dominant this can’t happen anymore so you don’t repair you can’t rejuvenate now the autonomic nervous system needs a lot of b1 vitamin b1 is not your regular B vitamin it has it’s probably one of the most important vitamins for the nervous system not just the general nervous system but the central nervous system the peripheral nervous system and definitely the autonomic nervous system now the deficiencies of vitamin b1 are identical to failure of the autonomic nervous system to functions so if you have damage to your autonomic nervous system those symptoms are exactly the same as being deficient in vitamin b1 and one of the reasons for that is that your nervous system needs so much b12 actually function so check out some of the symptoms of b1 pots what is pots that’s a condition where you stand up and you get really dizzy and you have to sit down okay there’s a lot of other symptoms connected to that but that’s one big one depression of course you’re talking about anxiety tension nervous tension in your body the feeling of stress confusion difficulty concentrating it’s called a DD hyperactivity you see that a lot in children I’m disoriented you see that in people that have Alzheimer’s or dimension irritability you see that with your spouse right unusual fatigue like there should be no reason why you’re tired yet you’re tired all the time fibromyalgia these are very common symptoms of the b1 deficiency there are a lot more but these are very common so when you’re deficient in b1 you inhibit the body’s ability to adapt to its an environment so you get weird symptoms – like let’s say for example you have cold feet in warmer weather or you’re getting hot feet in colder weather okay or you sweat when it’s cold outside or you get on the shower and you just start sweating for no reason or you’re working out or exercising in a hot environment and you’re not sweating or you’re tired after you eat I mean that’s weird food is supposed to give you energy why would you be tired after you consume food or you you’re dizzy when you stand up so these are very common symptoms so now the question is what would cause a b1 deficiency all right stress is a big one chronic stress is going to deplete vitamin B in the nervous system and you’re gonna have some of these symptoms right here so the more stress that you go through the more b1 your body requires all right number 2 refined sugars and refined carbohydrates if you’re consuming a lot of sugar or refined carbs you need a ton of b1 the problem is when you refined carbohydrates you’re consuming carbohydrates void of b1 because when you’re consuming like natural sugar cane and its whole form or grains in this whole form there’s actually a lot of b1 in there but when you refine them there’s no b1 so when you consume these foods you deplete your b1 reserves and you start getting these symptoms right here too much coffee can deplete b1 too much tea can deplete b1 chocolate can deplete b1 drinking wine can deplete bottom b1 so the reason I really wanted to do this video is to show you the huge connection between b1 and stress and your diet and the autonomic nervous system so if you’re in a fly to fight mode or have any of these symptoms nutritional yeast is a really good source of b1 now not against taking some synthetic b1 if it’s short term and if you’re also taking some natural at the same time because anytime you take large amounts of one vitamin it can knock out the other other vitamins nutritional yeast is a really good source another good source is something called been thought to mean been thought to mean is a fat-soluble b1 it gets absorbed into the brain and nervous system by a factor of 25 times more than the regular b1 which is water-soluble so anyway thanks for watching and I will see you in the next video hey if you’re liking this content please subscribe now and I will actually keep you updated on future

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about the flight or fight mechanism in vitamin B1. ANS or Autonomic Nervous System is a system that adapts the body’s organs to its environment. There’s two main divisions of the autonomic nervous system; the parasympathetic and sympathetic. Under stress for a long time could cause sympathetic dominant that could affect the quality of sleep and no longer in safe mode. Some of the common symptoms of sympathetic dominant are anxiety, panic attacks and nightmares. The autonomic nervous system needs a lot of vitamin B1, it is one of the most important vitamins in the general nervous system. The deficiency of vitamin B1 is identical to the failure of the autonomic nervous system function.
Two Main Divisions of the Autonomic Nervous System:
• Parasympathetic (Rest and Digest) – It operates in safe mode or when everything is safe, calm and relaxed.
• Sympathetic – It has an opposite function and this prepares you for stress.
Brain Stem Basic Function of Survival:
• Heart rate
• Fight or Flight
B1 Deficiency Symptoms
• POTS – Dizziness when you stand up.
• Difficult Concentrating – ADD
• Unusual Fatigue
Cause of B1 Deficiency
2. Refined Sugars and Refined Carbohydrates
3. Coffee / Tea
Best Sources of Vitamin B1:
• Nutritional Yeast
Hey guys! I’m back and we’re going to talk about the flight or fight mechanism in vitamin B1. One of my favorite vitamins. Let’s just start with something called the autonomic nervous system, what is that? This is the system that adapts the body or the body’s organs to its environment. It works behind the scenes and it’s constantly making adjustments so if your environment is stressful or you’re going to sleep or you’re eating or you’re going out into the cold, your
body is going to adapt to that environment. Now, there’s two man divisions of the autonomic nervous system, there’s actually a third one I’m not gonna get into it. You have the parasympathetic which is rest and digest and this operates in safe mode when everything is safe, you’re calm you’re relaxed but as soon as you go through stress, it kicks over here into this other system which is the sympathetic nervous system, completely different, kind of the opposite functions and this prepares you for stress. Now, the autonomic nervous system goes throughout the entire body in different connections to the nerves in the back, the nerves in the lower spine and even in the brain stem. In the brain stem you have the basic functions of survival, heart rate, breathing, hunger, satiety, flight or fight which is basically running away from a tiger or fighting the tiger and then reproduction. So nowadays we’re not actually being chased by a tiger that was long ago, however mentally we are being chased by a tiger very similar reactions, the only problem is there’s no tiger in the room, so if you’re under stress for a long time
