I will begin by stating that nerve pain is NOT contagious, and confess to using a provocative title to peak your interest. And while nerve pain may not be contagious, the steady rise of this category of complaints makes one wonder what is going on. Here is a brief quote from Pubmed.gov: “Multiple causes of neuropathic pain have been described and its incidence is likely to increase owing to the ageing global population, increased incidence of diabetes mellitus and improved survival from cancer after chemotherapy.”
Certainly some nerve pain is attributed to injury, repetitive stress, sciatica, etc. But is the rise in these problems due to an actual increase in injuries, or is something changing in the nerves as well?
Experts disagree, but that shouldn’t surprise anyone. What matters is how you answer the above question. On the issue of the necessity of a Multi-Vitamin supplement, most folks fall into one of three camps:
The Multi Vita-Min supplement is a daily part of at least 70% of American’s quest for good health. In the last three decades, as the variety and scope of Dietary Supplements has exploded, the Multi Vita-Min remains an anchor supplement.
This is not to imply that this iconic daily supplement has remained static. We now can choose between One-Per-Day, Two-Per-Day, Three-Per-Day, up to Six- Per-Day, Men’s, Men’s over 40, Men’s over 55, Women’s, Women’s over 40, Women’s over 55, Infant, Toddler’s, Children’s, Teen’s, Food-Based, Food Grown, Powders, Liquids, Isotonic, Liposomal, Tablets, Capsules, Softgels, Chewables, Gummies, … and the list goes on.
In my 5 decades of working with, and answering the wide range of queries from thousands of Dietary Supplement Consumers, I have been asked quite a few questions concerning Multi Vita-Mins. Perhaps the perspective of a long-time Natural Foods Industry veteran will help you make sense of all this.
Bill Sardi was a force of Nature. And though he is no longer here with us, his impact is still felt today. I expect to repeat the preceding sentence long into the future.
Those of us who know Bill could talk about his many books identifying powerful health strategies; his voluminous articles packed with insights on nutrition, the economy, and society; the ground-breaking supplements he formulated; and the hours he spent on the phone with many of you reading this article.
While running my vitamin store in Northern California, Bill Sardi entered my life which changed it forever.
Sickness is felt but health not at all— Thomas Fuller, 1600s
Someone once said two of the most difficult things to change in humans is their diet and their religion. After over two decades of advocacy for nutritional medicine I’ve learned a hard lesson. Despite convincing arguments for the role of dietary supplements in health maintenance, the masses continue to embrace overpriced and problematic synthetic drugs and risky vaccines.
I remember, after writing the first book about NUTRITION & THE EYES in 1992, people who heard me talk about the idea of using dietary supplements to maintain good vision throughout life were stunned. During an interview on a New York City radio station, people were reported to pull their cars over to the side of the road to listen. They previously thought poor eyesight was an inevitable part of growing old. Just after the book was published a report in a medical journal showed that six milligrams a day of lutein, a pigment found in marigold flower petals, was able to protect the retina of the human eye from solar radiation and act as an internal sunglass filter. I had to write that up and add it as an loose-leaf addendum to my book. I later formulated SIGHTAMINS to offer the best comprehensive dietary supplement for the eyes available… Read more
A number of years back I began to recognize I was having sharp knife-like pain of short duration in my mid-section after meals. I later learned that was my gall bladder squeezing down to squirt bile into my stomach to break down fats and oils. However, instead it squeezed down on a gallstone. These stones are comprised of cholesterol, calcium and iron.
It wasn’t my nature to run to the doctor. If I was inclined to seek medical advice, I would have likely been given a referral to a gastrointestinal surgeon to surgically remove my gall bladder. Oh, there is also a very slow-acting drug that can be taken for months but I wasn’t interested in that either. What I wanted was a healthy gall bladder… Read more
