B-12

B-12

Vitamin B12 bears the responsibility for critical functions such as creating DNA and red blood cell production. It protects nerve tissues from damage and aging, as well as overall brain function. In the US alone, there are 48 million people with B12 deficiencies. Sometimes when B12 lacks nerve damage, it can be debilitating. Sadly, practitioners often overlook this issue until it advances and wreaks havoc on multiple systems. Our team provides a well-researched, integrative approach to this problem that puts it behind you forever and prevents its symptoms from affecting you and your family. Our diagnostic systems quickly assess the exact nutrients you lack.

You must get B12 from supplementation or animal proteins when your supply drains. Your body does not manufacture it, and also it is not stored in your tissues for very long. Sadly, many practitioners often overlook this issue until it advances and wreaks havoc on multiple systems.

Research from Harvard Medical School points out that B12 deficiency is almost like a silent and secret enemy. Slowly the effects of depletion add up until you have a condition that overpowers you. The pathways to absorb it are complex, so this multiplies the chances for malabsorption.

Do you have any of the following symptoms? If so, our B12 infusion could be the solution.

  • Fatigue
  • Forgetfulness or memory problems
  • Mental or behavioral problems including anxiety and depression
  • Loss of nerve or muscle strength
  • Trouble walking or with balance
  • Numbness or tingling sensations
  • Pale skin
  • Dizziness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Bumps, soreness, or a burning sensation on your tongue
  • Changes in your vision including blurring, double vision, or fuzziness
  • Weight loss results from a decrease in the ability to taste your food. Essentially, a tasteless sensation reduces your appetite
  • Constipation, gas, diarrhea, or bloating
  • Heart palpitations and shortness of breath

Many factors contribute to B12 deficiency. First of all, a vegetarian or vegan diet is often a culprit. Additionally, when the stomach lining thins, causing gastritis, B12 absorption is tough. Also, pernicious anemia prevents total absorption. Crohn’s disease, as well as Celiac disease, affects your B12 levels. Any condition that compromises the small intestine translates into decreased B12 absorption.

Immune diseases such as Lupus or Grave’s will also deplete B12 supply. Various medications for heartburn, acid reflux, proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), and certain diabetic drugs decrease this vital nutrient. Alcohol abuse will also cause similar results.

Women must act cautiously to maintain appropriate B12 levels. To begin with, they have an even more difficult time absorbing it. Since B12 creates red blood cells and supports oxygen supply, you can see why this problem can become dangerous.

Women often feel tired for many months or sometimes even years before understanding the source of the problem. Most likely, women will blame the problem on overwork, not enough sleep, or their diet. Yet even after improving all factors, it does not help. More sleep will not cure the depths of fatigue resulting from B12 depletion. In fact, over time, this fatigue, combined with any dizziness, increases fall risk by up to 40%. Testing patients admitted to emergency rooms and trauma wards have revealed that their B12 levels are often low and point to the cause of sudden medical issues and accidents.

B12 infusions correct this problem swiftly. Don’t wait. Let us take the burden of these symptoms from you and your family members today.
