Could it be B-12 Deficiency?

b12 sourcesEvery year, I read a book or two that are so powerful in the importance of the message that I feel I just have to pass along a recommendation that this is a must read.  The book “Could it Be B12? An epidemic of Misdiagnoses” by Sally Pacholok and Jeffery Stuart is just such a book.  

If you just want a taste, visit their web site:  For a support group, visit

For a screening tool the developed so you can determine whether or not you should consider B-12 testing, click here.

My own take on this is that I will never go another day (OK- I may miss one here and there) without taking 1000 micrograms of methyl-B12.

If you are having symptoms listed on this list, I highly recommend you get tested first.  There is value in knowing and if you truly are low and having symptoms, you likely will need to supplement B-12 for life or the troubles may return sometime after you stop supplementing.
