In America, over 40% of the
population is vitamin B12 deficient. Vitamin
B12 deficiency is the second most common vitamin deficiency in the Western
World. Why is this?
vitamin B12 is not an abundant vitamin in our food. But that is not a problem because we were
designed to receive B12 from certain friendly bacteria in our guts, which we acquire
by drinking our mother’s milk. However
non-breast-fed children will not have this advantage nor will they have as
strong of an immune system as people who were breast-fed. Breast-fed children
naturally acquire the correct bacteria, but a majority of people have lost
it. Without the correct bacteria we
become subject to all sorts of potential deficiencies and health problems.
medicine tends to focus on retrieving B12 from our diet, but that is ignoring
the main issues. This is one of their
reasons why they think we need to eat animal products, because they contain some
B12. Hundreds of millions of people in India are vegetarians and it is rare for
them have a B12 deficiency. Why?
Because, in spite of the greater hardships in obtaining clean food, they
are healthier then Americans, never had antibiotics and never lost their natural-to-humans friendly bacteria.
want good health, it is imperative that we have the correct type of friendly bacteria
in our guts; the type that creates B12, which are certain species of bifidobacterium. Sadly, a very large percentage of people do
not have the correct bacteria and most of these people have become overweight
or obese. The predominant bacteria in obese people are Lactobacillus (high-lactic acid-producing), which is the most
common probiotics sold on the market.
The dominant bacteria in lean and healthy people are bifidobacteria and they do not have as
many health challenges that other people do.
those who the correct bacteria as a child, why are so many of them vitamin B12
deficient, and how did they lose their natural-to-humans friendly bacteria? There are two main reasons: Poor diet and Antibiotics. Subsisting on a
poor diet, such as the SAD (Standard American Diet), eventually destroys and
mutates a normal intestinal environment.
An environment, whether it is in the world around us or within us,
always determines what specie will live there. By eating foods that are
completely unnatural to
humans, we automatically change our gut microbials, from health producing to
health issue producing. I would estimate
that over 80% of the American population fits this profile.
Antibiotics…anti means against, and biotic means life. Thus, anti-biotics means
anti-life; against life and that is exactly what so many drugs are; against
life. They are extreme unnatural chemicals, and I mean over
90% of all the drugs doctors use, were not part of the human design. Drugs, not just anti-biotics, are unnatural
chemicals that have become the number one cause of death and disease in the US.

Why are antibiotics so
bad? Antibiotics kill pathogenic bacteria, and they also
kill all our friendly bacteria, and if our gut is not quickly replaced with natural-to-human bacteria, our health
will begin to gradually decline and some people never fully regain their health;
things are off and it may be several more years when they go to the doctor
hoping to find a cure. They have no idea
that the cause of their problem was the antibiotic they took years ago.
the antibiotics ware off, pathogens creep in, and after sometime, digestive
problems develop; most noticeable and most common is constipation. Naturopaths define constipation as less than
3 BM daily, preferable 4 if you eat 3 meals a day. This is what’s normal to healthy people. Thus many people are constipated and they do
not know it. Those who know it are usually
in bad shape. For those who want good
health again, this is the first thing that must be corrected. If you are constipated, this means you are
accumulated toxins, acids and congestion at record speed; it also means that
you creating deficiencies, one after another.
This must be corrected as soon as possible. This is the second worst neglect doctors do
to their patients.
is always associated and the incorrect intestinal bacteria; these are the two hidden
causes of so much health issues in America and it affects the whole body;
causing change reactions, one after another, until potentially chronic and degenerative
health issue develop. And people wonder
doctors and most people, who are aware of the need to replace friendly bacteria
after they used antibiotics, are unaware of what the natural-to-human bacteria really are. Most will use the common probiotics found in
most health food stores; lactobacillus.
As I briefly noted above, it has been shown that lactobacillus is the
dominant gut bacteria in obese and overweight people. Hundreds of studies have confirmed this. Lactobacillus is natural to cows, not
humans. I encourage you to read two of
my articles, American Epidemic of Obesity - The Real Causes and Epigenetic Transgenerational Inheritance -
How the Human Race is Being Mutated for further study in this area.
most people, including medical doctors, are not aware of how important
intestinal bacteria are to us. The natural-to-humans bacteria produce many
nutrients; vitamins, amino acids and much more.
Friendly bacteria also complete our digestion and without the normal-to-human bacteria we severely
weaken our immune system, we become deficient in key vitamins and amino acids
and we lose our natural anti-biotic mechanisms and it can be downhill from

you see why vitamin B12 deficiency can be so serious. It boils down to our birth and to our
lifestyle, mainly, diet. Most of the
faults can be corrected, and it must begin with: 1.
Removing all the acids, toxins and congestion that have been
accumulating in us since childhood; and all interferences, such as mucus and
congestion must be eliminated so that we reestablish good circulation and be
able to replenish our intestines with the correct bacteria, assimilate our food
efficiently, and be able to eliminate undigested proteins that are in our
lymphatic system, in our blood and everywhere in between, all of which causes
inflammation. 2. Replenish our intestines with the
natural-to-human bacteria. 3. Eat the natural-to-human foods, which are
mainly fruits and vegetables.
often asked which vitamin B12 supplement they should use. Research is very clear on this: Only Methylcobalamin works as an oral vitamin
B12 supplement. There are other B12
supplements that are actually harmful.
of what I have outlined in this article is explained, in greater detail, in my
Book: Cleanse & Purify Thyself, Book One. I also highly recommend Toni Toney’s book: Get Cleanse – Go Green – Eco Diet. Cleanse and Purify Thyself explains the best
way to safely and effectively cleanse our bodies. Toni
Toney’s book clearly explains what our natural-to-human food is, and why it
is. It explains what foods to avoid,
which in these days can be just as important as what to eat. That is only a small part. She takes the reader to an understanding of

It is chuck full of vital information.
By following the lifestyle choices noted in these two books, I believe
people can help themselves back to optimal health.

Methylcobalamin: A Potential
Breakthrough in Neurological Disease
Japanese scientists have
identified a form of vitamin B-12 that protects against neurological disease
and aging by a unique mechanism that differs from current therapies.
Some of the disorders that may
be preventable or treatable with this natural vitamin therapy, methylcobalamin,
include chronic fatigue syndrome,
Parkinson's disease, peripheral neuropathies, Alzheimer's disease, muscular
dystrophy and neurological aging. Americans have immediate access to this
unique and new form of vitamin B-12, and, unlike prescription drugs, it costs
very little and is free of side effects.
Vitamin B-12 is a general label
for a group of
essential biological compounds knows as cobalamins.??
The cobalamins are structurally
related to hemoglobin in the blood, and a deficiency of vitamin B-12 can cause
anemia. The primary concern of conventional doctors is to maintain adequate
cobalamin status to protect against anemia. ??
The most common form of vitamin
B12 is called cyanocobalamin.
However, over the last ten years, a number of central and peripheral
neurological diseases have been linked to a deficiency of a very specific
cobalamin, the methylcobalamin form, that is required to protect against
neurological diseases and aging. The liver converts a small amount of
cyanocobalamin into methylcobalamin within the body, but larger amounts of methylcobalamin are necessary to correct
neurological defects and protect against aging. ??
Published studies show that high doses of methylcobalamin are needed to
regenerate neurons as well as the myelin sheath that protects nerve axons and peripheral
nerves. ??CFIDS and B-12 ?In the Summer 1998 issue of HealthWatch,
an important research article reported a fascinating new finding. Over 60% of
CFIDS and FM patients' cerebral spinal
fluids contained subnormal levels of vitamin B-12. On the other hand, vitamin
B-12 levels in the blood did not significantly deviate from normal ranges. ??
According to Dr. Paul Cheney's
treatment pyramid for CFIDS, vitamin B-12 in its non-cyanocobalamin form - the [only type then] commercially
available - is a potent detoxifier of
the brain. Recent studies in Europe suggest that it needs to be given in large doses in the range of 10 - 20 mg per day, or
even more. This supplementation of methylcobalamin
might protect the cognitive function of patients with CFIDS by preventing the
death of brain cells.??
One cause of brain cell death is glutamate toxicity. Brain cells use glutamate as a neurotransmitter, but
unfortunately glutamate is a
double-edged sword in that it can also kill brain cells. The release of
glutamate from the synapses is a usual means by which neurons communicate with
each other. ??Effective communication
means controlled release of glutamate at the right time to the right cells, but
when glutamate is released in excessive amounts, intercellular communication
ceases. The flood of glutamate into the receiving neurons drives them into
hyperactivity, and the excessive activity leads to cellular degradation. ??
The good news is that it may now be possible to protect brain
cells against glutamate toxicity by taking methylcobalamin supplementation.
In a study in the European Journal of Pharmacology, it was shown that methylcobalamin protected against
glutamate-, aspartate- and nitroprusside- induced neurotoxicity in rat
cortical neurons. ??
concluded that methylcobalamin protects against neurotoxicity by enhancing
brain cell methylation. The CFIDS &
Fibromyalgia Health Resource recommends methylation-enhancing therapies such as
vitamin B6, vitamin B-12, folic acid and
trimethylglycine (TMG), taken together, to protect against heart
disease, stroke and other aging-related diseases. ??
The scientists who conducted the
methylcobalamin studies emphasize that
ongoing intake of methylcobalamin is necessary to protect against neurotoxicity.
Thus for methylcobalamin to be effective in protecting against neurological
disease, daily supplementation may be
An appropriate dose to protect against neurological aging
might be 1 to 5 mg a day taken under the tongue in lozenge form. ??
Sleep ?A recent German study appearing in Neuropharmacology
showed methylcobalamin reduced the amount
of time subjects slept; sleep quality was better and subjects awoke feeling
refreshed, with better alertness and concentration. Part of this effect was
apparently due to melatonin suppression during the daytime because morning methylcobalamin supplementation
reduces drowsiness by decreasing daytime melatonin levels. ??
Multiple Sclerosis ?According to a recent study at Vanderbilt University,
chlamydia pneumoniae might link multiple sclerosis (MS) to CFIDS. This makes
the published effect of methylcobalamin treatment on MS of great importance to
those who suffer from CFIDS. ??
A study in the Journal of
Internal Medicine investigated the
daily administration of 60 mg of methylcobalamin to patients with chronic
progressive multiple sclerosis (MS), a disease that has a poor prognosis
and feature side spread demyelination in the central nervous system. ??
Although motor disability did not improve, there were
clinical improvements in visual and auditory MS related disabilities. The scientist stated that methylcobalamin might be an
effective adjunct to immunosuppressive treatment for chronic, progressive MS. Those with less serious forms of MS may
consider adding methylcobalamin to their daily treatment regimen. ??
The effects of methylcobalamin
were studied on an animal model of muscular
dystrophy. This study, published in Neuroscience Letter looked at
degeneration of axon motor terminals. In mice receiving methylcobalamin, nerve
sprouts were more frequently observed and regeneration of motor nerve terminals
occurred in sites that had been previously degenerating. ??
Regenerating Nerves ?Few substances have been shown to regenerate nerves in
humans with peripheral neuropathies. However, a study in the Journal of
Neurological Science postulated that methylcobalamin
could increase protein synthesis and help regenerate nerves. The scientists
showed that very high doses of methylcobalamin produce nerve regeneration in
laboratory rats. ??
The scientists stated that
ultra-high doses of methylcobalamin might be of clinical use for patients with peripheral neuropathies. The human equivalent
dose the scientists used is about 40 mg of sublingually administered
methylcobalamin on a daily basis. ??
Those suffering from peripheral
neuropathies often take alpha lipoic acid. Based on our new understanding of
peripheral neuropathy, it may be prudent that anyone using alpha lipoic acid also take at least 5 mg a day of
sublingually administered methylcobalamin to ensure that alpha lipoic acid will
be bioavailable to the peripheral nerves. ??
Cancer/Immune Function ?A study in the journal Oncology examined the
effects of methylcobalamin on several different kinds of tumors in mice. The administration of methylcobalamin for
seven days suppressed liver, lung and ascites tumor growth. Mice receiving
methylcobalamin survived longer than control mice did. In mice irradiated
before tumor cell inoculation, methylcobalamin did not improve survival. ??

What Vitamin B12 is used for?
B12 is vital for the formation of red blood cells, as well as for the proper
functioning and health of nerve tissue and
helps make DNA and keep DNA healthy as well as the genetic material in all
cells. Vitamin B12 also helps prevent anemia.
Anemia is a condition where one becomes deficient in red blood cells and
hemoglobin, which is what carries oxygen in our blood. Many believe that anemia
is caused by a deficiency of iron. Which
came first, B12 deficiency or iron deficiency?
Thus most common symptom of anemia is fatigue.
B12 deficiency, can lead to anemia, as well as nerve and brain damage, which
may eventually become irreversible.
Vitamin B12 is a life essential nutrient, we cannot live without out and
a deficiency means health problems.
Symptoms of Vitamin B12
B12 deficiency is far
more common than most health care practitioners and the general public realize.
Data from the Tufts University
Framingham Offspring Study suggest that 40 percent of people between the ages of 26 and 83 have plasma B12
levels in the low normal range.
The latest research now
shows that many people who show normal blood levels of B12, may have B12
deficiencies in various organs and tissues and in many cases it is very
Symptoms can include:
dementia, cognitive decline and memory loss (collectively referred to as
and immune dysregulation
Confusion or change

Diarrhea or constipation
Fatigue, lack of energy, or light-headedness
when standing up or with exertion
developmental disorders in kids
Loss of appetite
Loss of balance
Male and female infertility

(MS) and other neurological disorders
tingling of hands and feet
Shortness of breath, mostly during exercise
Swollen, red tongue

If the deficiency is not
corrected, it can damage the nerve cells. If this happens, vitamin B12
deficiency effects may include:
tingling or numbness

mood changes or
disorientation, and dementia
B12 deficiency in infants, if
not detected and treated, can lead to severe and permanent damage to the
Researchers from Rush University

their cognitive skills.

people might say: “I know for a fact
that antibiotics have saved lives.” And
I would agree 100%. But what people
generally do not know, including many doctors, that there are other ways to rid
ourselves of pathogenic bacteria in our gut without destroying our intestinal
environment and all our friendly bacteria.
Two reasons; poor diet is the
main reason. Diet determines the intestinal environment and once we’ve lost our
natural-to-humans friendly bacteria, the efficiency of our immune system drops,
bowel problems develop and we become deficient in B12 because we lost the type
of friendly bacteria that produces B12.
types of bacteria create vitamin B12 and once we lose them we eventually become
deficient Vitamin B12 and this vitamin it is essential for our life and heath.
way we destroy our natural intestinal environment is by taking
the need for antibiotics is related to a deficiency of natural-to-humans
Vitamin B12 is also known as
cobalamin. There are several cobalamins
used to treat B12 deficiency. The most common on the market is cyanocobalamin
and is called such because a cyanide molecule was attached to a cobalamin. Cyanide?
Isn’t that a deadly poison? It
sure is; in fact, Hydrogen cyanide was and still is used in gas chambers and
used in gas warfare. Cyanide is one of
the most common ways to commit suicide.
And they are putting cyanide into vitamins that people and even babies take? Yep, they do.
But isn’t it harmful? Well,
yes. But most of the time it goes
unnoticed, just like many drugs and pesticides that cause cancer and so many
other diseases; not traced to the cause.
They tell that it is in such
small amounts that it won’t hurt anyone.
And that is what they have been telling people every time a new
pharmaceutical drug and other chemicals that the FDA approves, and as they did
with tens of thousands of drugs. And
only, only after incredible harm has been done, is it finally taken off the
market or in some cases, change the name and keep it on the market.
Not only that, but
cyanocobalamin doesn’t work. It’s almost
useless as a B12 supplement. But its
cheap and that’s why its on the market.
Adenosylobalam, another form of
B12 has received little attention in the market.
cobalamin is hardly ever used as a B12 supplement; it is however, the treatment
of choice to treat cyanide poisoning.
Japanese scientists found that
methylcobalamin, the only viable form vitamin B-12 that can be effective when taken
orally, protects against neurological disease and helps slow aging when used
with large dosages.??
They were able to show that it
was also effective for chronic fatigue
syndrome, Parkinson's disease, peripheral neuropathies, Alzheimer's disease,
muscular dystrophy and neurological aging. Cost is small and free of side effects.
on the market, is also
ineffective and in some cases
A study on the effects of
methylcobalamin, the only usable vitamin B12 available on the market, on human
immune function was published in the Journal of Clinical Immunology. The
study showed that methylcobalamin demonstrated remarkable T cell-enhancing
effects when the T cells were exposed to certain antigens. ??
The scientists also showed that
methylcobalamin improved the activity of T helper cells. The scientists
concluded that methylcobalamin could modulate lymphocyte function by augmenting
regulatory T cell activities. ??
Americans need to know about
this important natural therapy that could extend the healthy human life span. A
search of the scientific literature reveals 334 published studies on
methylcobalamin. However, it would not be an exaggeration to say that virtually
no doctors know of it or are recommending it. ??
Methylcobalamin should be
considered for the treatment of any neurological disease. For example, based on
its unique mechanisms of action, methylcobalamin could be effective in slowing
the progression of "untreatable" diseases such as ALS (Lou Gerhig's
Since methylcobalamin is not a
drug, there is little economic incentive to conduct expensive clinical studies
on it, so it may be a long time before we know just how effective this unique
form of vitamin B-12 is in slowing the progression of common diseases like
Parkinson's disease. ??
The sublingual intake of methylcobalamin
is an affordable and effective natural therapy, and has proven even safe when
given in large doses.
