The critical nature of B12

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMost of us have neurological and digestive symptoms. Borrelia, babesia, and various TBD can cause those symptoms. MS, ALS, and other diseases can cause similar symptoms – that is widely known. As so often people with LD, I had to go down that path to rule out every other diseases and they just gave up.

Along with the correct diagnosis for TBD, my doctor told me to get my DNA tested (23andme.com) and run it through geneticgenie.com (free). There they run your DNA to find mutations. I found out that I have certain mutations that prevent proper absorption of B12.

I found this documentary on a lyme forum. It has opened up a new world for me. Vitamin B12 is so critical for our brains, nervous system, cardio system, motor neuron system, etc. Serious B12 deficiency is a death sentence. So often it is mis-diagnosed as Frontal Lobe Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Lewy (sp?) Body Dementia, ALS, Autism, Psychosis, and MS. A lot of people are at risk for deficiency of B12. So many factors could make us in danger of deficiency. Primarily  autoimmune diseases, vegan, vegetarian diet, Folic Acid (B6), anti-acid meds. It can run in families. The standard tests, like the Lyme standard test, miss most of the deficiencies cases.

What does this mean for Lymies? Watch the video, and see how many symptoms over lap our symptoms.
