While searching for deficiencies, I found a big one

I was so focused on minerals I completely overlooked something.

For the last few months I've been experiencing low energy, feelings of adrenal fatigue and just general feeling of going downhill and nothing I can do about it. Again... something is very wrong.

For the second time in as many years I have been experiencing pretty severe alcohol intolerance. I wrote about it click here. I had a stressful holiday season and assumed my cortisol levels were bottomed out again.

I started searching again and I have no idea how I missed this last year but vitamin B1, Thiamine, is the most likely place to look.

Taking 100mg each morning with my regular B's and multi Mineral and so far so good. I've got energy and feeling very good and positive!

I'm not sure why I was low on Thiamine to begin with. Wondering if methylation supplements can do that? Or possibly lack of Folate?
