Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta X2 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Monday, December 6, 197] Your horoscope By Jean e Dixon TUESDAY, DEC. 7 Your birthday today: This can be your breakthrough year in which all things come to you according to the originality and urgency of your effort at self-improvement. Today's natives often change trades, need encouragement in choosing and staving with a vocation. ARIES (March 21 - April 19) LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. 'Pink Water' can often cure Dear Dr. Lamb - i have been reading about the b vitamins and how effective they are in promoting a sound nervous system. I decided to try the b complex, as i have been under considerable press;* e in my work. It may be my imagination, but I found they seemed to help calm my nerves some. As I do not want to even take a mild tranquilizer, I was wondering whether b vitamins really do any good or harm if taken for a long period of time. How about the one-a-day supplementary vitamins that contain all vitamins and minerals and also include the b complex? Would it be harmful taking the b complex vitamin I already have plus the one-a-day? I would like some information on this before I decide to continue to take any kind of vitamin. Dear Header - If a person is eating a balanced diet with all the essential food components, he is not likely to need supplemental vitamins. With so many refined foods, such as sugar, that contain no appreciable amounts of vitamins or minerals, and the need many people have to diet, especially if they are not active physically, it is easy to have a deficient diet. Older people, who live alone, aie prone to eat an inadequate diet. Under these circumstances, added vitamins are helpful. Unless taken in really huge doses, there is no evidence that taking vitamins, even if you don't need them, will cause any harm - except vitamins A and D. All other vitamins you take in usual excess amounts are simply eliminated by the body Thus, taking the b complex vitamins you already have plus a one-a-day brand won't hurt you but it won't help you either. In plain language, take one or the other or you will just be throwing your money away Now you say you feel better after taking vitamins. That is fine, but don't be so sure it is the vitamins. Doctors have known for centuries that giving a patient any medicine, even pink water, often makes a pa tient feel better. This is especially true if the patient has nervous symptoms. The confidence the patient has in the pink water and the doctor lifts his spirits out of the doldrums, he regains his energies and feels better. A lot of feeling bad is related to one's emotional outlook. A person can truly be "worried sick." You might be shocked that a doctor would give his patient pink water. Fifty years ago, without antibiotics, and many of the medicines we have today, the doctor had little else to five some of his patients except hope, and hope came in a little bottle full of pink water. Phe-nobarb was the only tranquilizer he had and when pink water worked, it was wonderful. Moreover, it didn't cause any complications, like dependence upon drugs. Pink water, spiritual music, health spas, copper bracelets and other devices have brought relief to millions. The human mind is a strange and wonderful mechanism. You're more of a bystander throughout today's turmoil. Do what you can with whatever is within your own reach; enjoy the spectacle. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Be alert for news, changes relating to your prospects. Think twice, wait for intuition rather than react prematurely. GEMINI (May 2t - June 20): Make the most direct use of today's opportunities, they don't remain long and the requirements may be different soon. You have a great deal going for you. rANCER (June 21 - July 22): It might seem nothing is getting done during endless discussions. Just keep your cool head and enjoy the discourse. Subtle gains show later, LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): A tall story is likely all you get when you reclaim your own; some things have to he written off, others collected later. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Being tactful isn't enough - get out of the middle, let people skirmish beyond your sight and sound to suit themselves. An impulsive move mav plop you right into the mitre of a situation where you have to think carefully to extricate yourself. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Your budget plans deserve some stubborn defense today. There's very little useful future in buying merely to impress neighbors. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Ascertain just what is being asked of you and whether you can do it reasonably - if so, do a good job and charge a full wage. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Friends, relatives, brethren we have around us forever. The big issue is learning how best to deal with them over the longer period. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. IS): Presenting your own special formula brings praise, particularly if you've set the preliminary steps well. PISCES (Feb. 19 - March 20 ^ Neither objectives nor objections should change now in your view of life. Hold on a while longer.
