Studies show chronic back pain is often caused by constricted blood vessels that reduce blood flow. This prevents muscles and nerves from getting enough oxygen-rich blood, triggering pain. But vitamin B-12 allows blood cells to carry more oxygen to muscles and nerves. Plus, it boosts insulation around nerve cells so they’re less likely to send pain signals. I suggest 1,500 mcg. of Methyl B-12 per day. One to try: Life Extension Vitamin B-12 Methylcobalamin, LifeExtension.com/ww. (Check with a doctor before supplementing.)
The wardrobe tweak to FEEL YOUR BEST
One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.
