How to Apply High-Dose Thiamine Protocols in Clinical Practice: Part 2

This is the second of two lectures I gave to a group of medical/health professionals on the clinical application of high-dose vitamin B1.

In this video I outline the the difference between nutritional deficiency and the concept of “functional dependence”. I then discuss the practical aspects of forming a protocol including:

– Which form to use and why
– How to dose for different conditions
– When to use this therapy and when not to use this therapy
– Managing patient side effects

  1. Is carb intolerance one of the main symptoms of thiamine deficency? I can tolerate carbs quite well but still have fibromyalgia and suspect that it is from thiamine deficency

  2. I have been dealing with sulfite sensitivity, and now sulfur sensitivity with my MCAS after mold exposure especially. I respond VERY strongly to molybdenum, and I learned it also detoxes copper! I am now curious as to how my high copper might be linked to sulfite metabolism. Could copper be tying up the pathway? It would be interesting in looking into. I mentioned it to my integrative physician and he wasn’t sure. One more time I was patient zero. 😳

  3. Even though in our experience thiamine is well effective alone, it is possible to add other group B vitamins, including folic acid. However, we do not begin the therapy with high dose thiamine in addition to multivitamin compounds, especially if these contain vitamin B6. This because vitamin B6 is a facilitator of the peripheral decarboxylase and in PwP may interfere with the amount of L-dopa that reaches the brain and thus worsen the symptoms.

  4. I had been taking higher vitamin D3 dosages once I stopped, my anxiety and panic attacks and bladder issues returned.I take between 5 to 10 thousand IUs if D3 and the regular amount of thiamine and liquid B complex to feel normal.

  5. How would you adjust the dosages for people fasting and down to 2 meals with no breakfast, or even (OMAD) one meal per day?
    Thanks for your wonderful work.

  6. 🎯This was fantastic Elliot! I had so many thoughts/questions, & you answered every one of them~ & then some. Thank you so much for continuing to share your research & experience, because you're right~ not enough people know about it. I spent 30+ yrs working w/clients who could have greatly benefited from this, I am convinced.
    Excited to share this w/as many as possible, & hoping everyone who watches & listens does the same. One need not be a doctor to know someone (likely many!) who might benefit from this therapy. It's truly mind-boggling to consider how much critical information has been purposefully stifled- my own opinion, of course. Thanks again, & may your efforts be blessed- S.Whitson

  7. I have CFS, and migrating arthritic pain. I started the carnivore 15 months ago got 60% better, tried 700mg benfotiamine daily but no changes bad or good so I figured B-1 was not necessary. I was diagnosed with CIRS in Feb and I revisited the idea of B-1 and 1 month ago I started with TTFD at 50 mg …wow did I feel the difference. I get a buzzy feeling not quite like caffeine. Since Eloit's capsules are 100mg and they taste AWFUL to take the powder LOL, I ordered Allithiamine caps on Amazon so I could increase by 50 mg every 2-3 days. I up my dose when I stop feeling the "buzzy" feeling. (I'm at 500mg now) My symptoms have lessened but I still have a ways to go. I'm SO grateful for this posting because I'm going to add some benfo and split my dose instead of just taking in the morning.

  8. I have tried many medications and supplements for my fibromyalgia and hands numbing nothing really help only when I started to chewing vitamin B1 , after one month or less I forgot that I had fibromyalgia I stopped taking it but noticed No Fibromyalgia anymore but the hands numbing came bk I which made me use B1 daily waiting for the complete hands heading.
