NGINX and IP Addresses

I am currently using NGINX on Ubuntu 10.10 to load balance one of my websites.  I collect  statistical information from each visitor.  My problem is that the vistitors IP address is not being passed through the load balancer.  The load balancer is instead, passing the public IP address of the load balancer.

Is there a way to fix this?

What happens is that your load balancer connects to your webserver.
Now some proxy servers can add a X-Fordarded-for header to the HTTP header.
This should then be used in your web server to add to the logging.
