Présentation de l'éditeur

Presenting a wide scope of problems caused by B12 deficiency, this comprehensive guide provides up-to-date medical information about symptoms, testing, diagnosis, and treatment. Written for both the patient and the interested layperson, this detailed book outlines how physicians frequently misdiagnose B12 deficiency as Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, heart disease, mental retardation, Parkinson’s disease, depression, or other mental illnesses. Now in the second edition, this resource has been thoroughly updated with the latest research, diagnostic tests, treatment options, case studies, and testimonials.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 After all these years, it WAS the B-12!! 7 février 2011
Par D. Black - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
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). Without books like this it might be very difficult for many people to get to the bottom of the cause of their symptoms and thus have to continue being treated by doctors using drugs to suppress symptoms (or, like me, spending massive amounts of money on supplements that couldn't really solve the problem).

Update (12-30-11): Since writing this review almost one year ago, I've made another discovery that's even more basic than the B-12 deficiency. After all, one wonders why there's a deficiency in the first place (since I've been taking at least 1000 mcg sublingual B-12 daily for years). I recently discovered that I have genetic gluten sensitivity (similar to celiac disease). Gluten sensitivity can lead to a long list of problems including gut damage which compromises absorption of nutrients, and I found out that gluten sensitivity runs in my family. Going gluten free (absolutely no wheat, rye, or barley - for me, no grains at all, actually) has made a huge difference. Though I had improved my migraine problem with B-12, they're all but eliminated after going gluten free (though I can still give myself a migraine if I eat a few foods I just don't tolerate). Depression is mostly gone, as is chronic insomnia, and my energy level is much better - almost "normal." Gluten is a big issue for many people, and few know about it. And by the way, I am now using methyl B-12 (5000 mcg x 2 daily) instead of the hydroxo form.

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

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Chiropractor Applauds "Could It Be B12? And Epidemic of Misdiagnoses" 3 février 2012
Par Dr. William Koch -- "Dr. Bill, The Out Island Chiropractor" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I am a Chiropractor who has been practicing in the out islands of the Bahamas for 10 years, and prior to that I had a 30 year practice in the Hamptons on Long Island, NY. I am also author of the book "Chiropractic The Superior Alternative." Chiropractic: The Superior Alternative

"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. This book is rich in case histories of real people whose doctors failed to make what should have been an easy diagnosis of B12 deficiency, but instead of running a simple, inexpensive blood test, opted for other expensive tests, often including costly CAT scans. They instead came up with more exotic and dire diagnoses and treatments.
Pacholok shows us that a high percentage of falls and fractures by senior citizens are caused by B12 deficiency. That some of the most commonly prescribed drugs like Nexium and Prilosec as well as oral diabetic medications to name only a few contribute to B12 deficiency. Popular gastric bypass surgeries virtually guarantee that the recipient will develop a B12 deficiency.

This book is a "must read" for all doctors. It is extremely relevant to Chiropractors, like me who see many patients with a variety neck and back pain and neuropathies especially of the lower extremities, and others who consult us for injuries sustained in falls, some of which are possibly caused byB12 deficiency. Chiropractors, need to be acutely aware that it causes spinal cord degeneration, and must entertain the possibility of this deficiency especially in cases that are unresponsive to their care. We must not fall into the trap of writing off neuropathies we see in diabetics as, simply, diabetic neuropathy or old age if the patient is elderly. Doing so, we may miss the window of opportunity to help save a life, or improve the quality of a life. There are many cases of missed diagnosis which, if they had been caught in the early stages, before permanent neurological damage had been done, could have, saved lives or prevented permanent disability.

The bottom line is that Vitamin B12 deficiency is much more common than most of us have realized. That recognizing it, diagnosing it and treating it is easy and inexpensive. Doing so, any doctor willing to open his/her eyes can contribute to saving lives as well as restoring and preserving quality of life for millions of people while saving billions of dollars in health care costs and personal finances. The early recognition of B12 deficiency can help the twilight years be enjoyable and rewarding as opposed to the exercise in endurance it becomes for too many. That constitutes a win/win in my book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A MUST READ! Finally, answers and information! 1 février 2013
Par Debra.Gilmour - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
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.

At this time, we believe normal serum B12 levels should be greater than 550pg/ml. For brain and nervous system health and prevention of disease in older adults, serum B12 levels should be maintained near or above 1,000 pg/ml. &quote;
