Vitamin B Injections: I Am Considering It.
0

10 posts in this topic

I am considering whether vitamin B injections would be right for me. First off, I read that a certain variety of vitamin B is the best. What is it?

Have injections been helpful to you?

I am planning to try sublingual B first. How do I tell it works and continually works. It seems that my vitamins the longer I take them, become intolerable to me. How can I tell the vitamin B injections work. I would like to have more than a subjective measurement as usual.

You might try a holistic doc. The only "B" that I know for sure that allopathic docs inj is B12. Do you have low stomach acid? if you are over 40 it is more likely to not have enough, than to have too much. B12 sublingual, but also on an empty stomach, since most of it is swallowed in the saliva. I have a cast iron stomach, but even I can't do B-complex on an empty stomache. Good luck

I had noticed halves of capsules coming through with powder still inside. I did a nutrient absorbption blood test. I have a vitamin B 12 high need I also need B 6 and B1. .. . It is a catch 22. One needs the vitamins to get the acid for digestion; one needs the acid to get the vitamins. Somehow, I have to break the cycle. . I have developed intolerances to nearly everything I eat I am trying to get a rotational diet going and am currently feeling better. My eyes are blood shot and have blackness under them.. I can't take the vitamins I had been taking because of my intolerance to rice.

Meats, nuts, legumes, vegetables, good fats, tiny bits of fruits and supplements. My variety includes about 50 various elements. I haven't had a sweet treat, besides fruit for 5 years, but for some crystalized ginger occassionally. Desperate people with a natural food bend do desperate things in order to get better like eating healthy.

Hi Diana,

Have you tried Betaine HCL? If you have a stomach acid problem you can take Betaine HCL to help riase the acid level in your stomach.

Hi Diana,

Have you tried Betaine HCL? If you have a stomach acid problem you can take Betaine HCL to help riase the acid level in your stomach.

Thanks, there is some in my supplements. But I did find out that I needed some pancreatic enzymes perhaps that will help.

Hi Diana-

We found - upon recommendation from our holistic doc -- if we take enzymes before meals and Betaine HCL about a half our after the meal (he actually suggested an hour after, but we kept forgetting them) things digest a bit better. Perhaps you could take your supplements during your largest meal sandwiched between enzymes and HCL? It is a tricky thing to find the correct mix on a healing system.

Another thing that can help is to remove ALL supplements for a week and then add one at a time back in at a time - If your supplements are not helping or you are not digesting them - it's time to work on the timing a bit.

If rotation isn't working - perhaps give food combining a read - this can aid digestion.

Good Luck :)

I tried a B-vitamin shot about a month ago. Cocktail of B12, B complex, folic acid, and some other nutrient that begins with "L" (cannot read my doc's handwriting). I did notice a slight improvement in energy (more pep). I also noticed when the shot wore off at about day 8 or day 9, right when my doctor said it would (tired earlier in the day). I am taking occasional B12 sublingual and B-complex tablet (ingest) when I remember to and these seem to help some. Good luck.

Thanks, something seems to be working. I quit eating buckwheat that was cross contaminated, started a rotational diet, began pancreatic enzymes, and got different vitamin B12. Dare I get a little gitty? Not yet.

I now take B-12 injections twice a month...You want your B-12 level to be around 850...mine was under 400 Which by the way is within the ranges but I couldn't function...I do also take multi vits & mins, Vit D & so on. Just some of us only the injection helps...I was doing weekly & may have to go back to weekly injections to keep my level at 850... It's been a month of bi-monthly & my level is only 503

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
