3. What are nutritional deficiencies and what do they do to your health?
A deficiency is basically a nutrient that your body does not have enough of
to function properly.
What if you forgot to put enough oil in you car?
Despite the fact that it was getting the air, gas, functioning spark
plugs and good combustion, the car wouldn’t work properly.
Sure the piston would go up and down and the car would move forward –
just like normal. But soon the
engine might run a little hot. Down
in the engine different things might start happening.
The rings around the piston that stopped oil from getting up into the
combustion area might be giving way. The
normal straight camshaft might start to bend a little.
The engine just won’t work right. Perhaps the car will need a small
repair, or maybe a major overhaul – or ignored the engine will just seize up
It’s the same with your body – except that you can’t just buy another
engine and repairs made to a damaged body might not put things back together
Let’s look at some of the many varied things that can happen when you
don’t put the needed nutrients into the body, and wind up with a deficiency.
Gingivitis is created when plague (sticky deposits of bacteria, mucus and
food particles) adheres to the teeth, hardens and irritates the gum. The
accumulation causes the gums to become infected and swollen. As the gums swell,
pockets form between the gums and the teeth and act as a trap for more plague.
Irritated gums bleed and eventually start to recede.
This irritation can be fought by introducing Vitamin C, which fights the
formation of plaque. Now
gingivitis, untreated, can progress to periodontal disease, which means loose
teeth and false teeth. Seems
like it would be easier just to get enough C.
C would have fought the formation of plaque to begin with.
Does that sound too easy? Remember
in the fast food lifestyle that we live in, we need a Vitamin C to fight the
many problems in that lifestyle – processed foods, polluted air, etc. You need enough so that your gums get enough.
Vitamin B12 comes from meat, eggs, fish and milk, but not everyone eats these
and they do not eat enough to fight the depletion that happens from day to day
living. Alcohol, coffee,
tobacco to name a few can also deplete the body of vitamin B12.
What happens when you have a deficiency of Vitamin B12?
It can bring about nerve degeneration.
Vitamin B12 supports the sheathing that protects nerve cells. Damage to
the nerve sheathing can produce numbness, tingling and the pain. It’s called
neuropathy. Neuropathy can be a
side effect of cancer treatments, certain medications, toxins, diabetes, and
many other things. And
the funny part about it is that all reasons one can get neuropathy could have
been prevented in the first place with the proper nutrients.
We have all heard the problems from someone smoking, but even if you smoke,
you can still take vitamins to compensate for the depletion of vitamins that it
There are a lot of problems that deficiency causes.
