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).Read more ›
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.

"Could It Be B12? An Epidemic Of Misdiagnosis" is the most important book I have read in decades. In it the authors, Sally Pacholok R.N. and her physician husband Jeffrey Stuart D.O., clearly, concisely and convincingly call our attention to a condition that exists in epidemic numbers.
The authors shine the light of day on the fact that deficiency of vitamin B12, a vital nutrient, is much more common than most doctors ever realized. They show that the current standard for what constitutes a normal level of vit.B12 on a blood test is in fact woefully inadequate, and a fraction of the amount necessary to support optimal health and prevent a whole array of conditions directly attributable to B12 deficiency. Pacholok is on a mission to call attention to this often unrecognized deficiency and to raise the bar of what constitutes a healthy level of B12 when measured by blood test.
Pacholok gives scientific proof and compelling statistical evidence that B12 deficiency is responsible for, or a contributor to a whole host of neurological conditions, as well a psychiatric disorders. This list includes Alzheimer's, and senile dementia as well as Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson's disease. It also is a possible cause in cases of infant and juvenile failure of normal neuro-musculoskeltal and arrested intellectual development.Read more ›
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
