If you or your loved ones have health issues you can't get a handle on or you've been diagnosed for something and the standard treatment doesn't seem to work, then I say definitely pick this book up. --www.BunnyCates.com


"Could it be B12?" has literally saved lives and is the only complete and authoritative guide to B12 deficiency and shows what you can do to protect yourself and your family from this crippling disorder. --Senior Beacon

The most important book I have read in decades ... clearly, concisely and convincingly calls our attention to a condition that exists in epidemic numbers. This book is a must read for all doctors. --Dr. Bill Koch, The American Chiropractor magazine

I've had chronic fatigue for around 25 years and frequent migraines for a bit longer. I've been down just about every road I could find for answers, first taking lots of supplements (which were certainly helpful to one degree or another) then checking out various causes such as mercury poisoning (symptoms of fatigue started around the same time I had a bunch of old fillings with new "silver" ones in the late 1980s), Lyme Disease, anyway, long list.

To make a very long story much shorter -- a few weeks ago, probably as a result of some purchase or search I had made, Amazon suggested this book to me. I had already started taking B-12 after reading about the Dr. Martin Pall protocol for CFS which uses high dose hydroxocobalamin B-12 among many other supplements. After just a few days on sublingual hydroxo B-12 (Perque Activated B-12) -- in less than one week -- my migraines just stopped cold (had been getting one or two per week, off and on, for years, and frequency was increasing over time). For me, the hydroxo form seems to be more effective than the methyl form of B-12 (I had been taking sublingual methyl B-12 1000 mcg for years and my serum levels were quite elevated).

In large part with the help of this book, I have come to realize that I've probably had a B-12 deficiency most of my life (and I'd say further, in retrospect, that B-12 deficiency probably runs in my mother's side of our family). And perhaps what "put me over the edge" in the late 80s was the increased mercury exposure from filling replacement (mercury binds B-12).

In any case, during my entire 25 year odyssey with CFS, not one health professional ever suggested that B-12 could be my primary problem (even though I had some blood test indicators they should have caught).

Everyone should read this incredible book. Vitamin B-12 affects many of us elderly, but it can also affect child development, mimic schizophrenia, Alzheimers, MS, and more. Many folks could spend $36 a year on B-12 rather than on expensive medications. Of course, a person has to be low in B-12 to be helped; however, the authors point out that a typical lab says a low level is "normal." It is not. A person should have a score of 450 to be normal. The authors give the latest tests for assessing B-12 deficiency. One of the problems they cite is that many doctors are not aware of testing correctly. In my practice (psychology), I've helped a number of folks who had no idea what was causing their problems. B-12 corrected these issues. This avoided being treated for schizophrenia, being placed in nursing homes, etc.

I was thinking of writing a book on B-12 deficiency; however, the authors' book fulfills everything I would have said...and more. Thus, I can relax and not write it. Procrastination is one of my strong points. Thanks so much to the authors. I just hope many people read this book. It should be a best seller.

This book is a must read for those suffering from health issues... You'll never know what it's like to feel good until you make some changes in your life and read " Could it be b12 deficiency". This book has changed my life, I now know what it's like to wake up in the morning and feel good all day. Though I did not do the testing because I was taking the b12 lozenges before I read the book, my Dr. started me on b12 Methylcobalamine injections. She gave me the choice of getting tested or just taking the injections, I chose the injections, I had amazing relief of the numbness and tingling to my upper extremities, migrane headaches (1-3 headaches per week, lasted 10-14 hours), and have not had an episode of temporary amnesia while at work or not recognizing my suroundings, sharp pains to my lower extremities especially the right side, constipation, severe neck and upper back pain, abdominal/epigastric pain, muscle weakness, vission changes, palpitations, tinnitus.

Having worked as an RN in many different areas since 1983 in the medical field, I knew conventional medicine and its drug treatments was not for me. I did find some pain relief through chiropractic adjustments, massage and some natural medicine. I resolved to live the rest of my life continuing to educate myself until I found what was causing my health issues, the WAPF is a great source of information.

So for all of you who are suffering... Don't give up keep searching, you might want to start by readng Sally's book and don't let Dr's intimidate you, empower yourself with knowlegde. SHELLY

After decades of misdiagnoses suffering everything from miscarriages, hypothyroidism, adrenal exhaustion and a brain aneurism, to severe, chronic migraines and cervical spine pain, this book finally gave me answers!

An astute naturopath had me tested, and low and behold I was positive for a genetic variant that made me unable to methylate B12 since birth. After hearing for years that my symptoms were all "in my head/non-specifc/within reference ranges, God's will" this book confirmed what I knew for so long; something terribly wrong was going on inside of me. Yet, visits to PCPs, GYNs, neurologists, neurosurgeons, allergists, ENTs, and numerous emergency rooms, not once did a single doctor test me for vitamin B12 deficiency.

I carry this book with me to EVERY doctor visit, now. The change in my physical health since beginning treatment for my B12 deficiency has been nothing short of a miracle. The book is well written, comprehensively researched and referenced, and worth every penny. I just wish I had know about it long ago, when the first edition hit book stores.
