Help is always at hand
I’d like to think you can get all the information and support you need from the website. This comprehensive resource will remain available for those in need and not hidden behind any paywall.
For some people, personalised support is important. This is where I can elaborate on the information found here.
If this is what you require, please read on and see the testimonials below. Either way, the best place to start is the What to do next page.
You can receive specific and personalised support and advocacy from me via email, telephone or Skype. My minimum fee for this initial support is £60 (approx. 1 hour). This will include sending a written review of the information given following our discussion. Following this, if you require continued support please contact me, Tracey, to discuss a personalised package.
Please note; I am not medically trained and I do not give medical advice, however through my own personal experience and the wealth of knowledge gained over the years from helping 1000’s of my website users, I can help you to better understand your condition and unravel incorrect information you may have been given.
The support I can provide may include:
• Showing you detailed pathway’s to understanding your condition and other related conditions and what to further explore by providing research and resources.
• Help to inform, educate and empower you to advocate for yourself so that you can take charge of your own health.
• Listening and helping you to identify B12 deficiency if it is present and decipher information about this condition, showing you where to look, what to explore.
• Giving an understanding of the myriad of symptoms, correct treatment and why people should never assume the worst or simply accept what they are being told.
• Helping with letter writing and (if you are in the UK) help with navigating NHS services to access the care you need when your GP surgery are unhelpful.
• Giving specific information to arm you with knowledge to gain the appropriate diagnosis, medical help and support in gaining the improvement in your care that you and your loved ones deserve.
• Giving specific advice/strategies and guidance on how to approach your GP in order to access testing and treatment and for what exactly.
• If your relationship with your GP fails, I can help by signposting who you need to contact, and what to ask for.

I am amazed at the effect you have had on the nurses and students in North Wales Tracey - this is true public/patient engagement at its best! Thank you so much and please keep up the good work even if we wear you out with our constant questions!

Tracey Witty is a compassionate advocate for people suffering from vitamin B12 deficiency. We highly recommend her dedication in helping people receive a proper diagnosis and treatment.

Tracey is a very compassionate and caring person. She uses her extensive knowledge of B12 Deficiency to advocate for B12 Deficient sufferers when helping them to write letters or accompanying them to doctor’s appointments. Tracey created and designed her website to make it easier for B12 Deficient sufferers to access information about B12 Deficiency. I often link members of my group to Tracey’s website as is very professional with links to medical research to support the information provided. Tracey is very passionate about advocating for the rights of B12 Deficient sufferers and is a tireless campaigner raising awareness of B12 Deficiency.

For health to recover fully, there needs to be a willingness to delve into the causes of the problem - only then can a solution be found. Tracey specialises in helping people to search for the roots of their illness and find practical ways to recover their health. B12 deficiency is increasing in prevalence due to an ageing population, western diets leading to a rise in autoimmunity and many common prescription drugs preventing B12 absorption. Her work continues to inform and educate people to take charge of their own health and be informed about the available treatment options.

Having liaised with Tracey and being a fortunate recipient of her knowledge, guidance and kindness, I can whole-heartedly say that she is at the top of her game... not just as a B12 expert, but as a human! It only takes a brief insight into her own life journey and story to quickly realise that Tracey is an exceptional lady. She embodies more than individual potential for strength, growth, recovery and change - she embodies the possibility of inspiring all of this in the human collective as well. I can assuredly say that, with the growing evidence of B12 deficiency being an epidemic, Tracey - in her work - marries intellect with application, knowledge with compassion and science with a wider philosophy. Her experience and research renders her extremely valuable to the current and future needs of patients who may, like myself, feel let down by the medical profession. In my humble opinion, I cannot think of any B12-related case in which Tracey's holistic and bespoke approach would not be valid. In short, I am grateful to Tracey for her support, in awe of all that she knows and manages to do, and ambitious that one day, I may also follow in such noble endeavours through my own work! Thank you for helping us through our journeys, Tracey - I am certainly better off for it!
Hearing someone say, 'I understand....someone who has previously experienced b12 deficiency and could articulate the feelings, symptoms and barriers...well it was life changing...someone to guide me step by step was invaluable...to give me back my life...priceless...' I will never forget Tracey being at the end of the phone listening, understanding, supporting doctors appointments and letter writing. If it wasn't for the help from Tracey I would be bed bound, instead with the appropriate treatment I am leading a full life with continued guidance .... I thoroughly recommend getting support from Tracey, she is incredibly knowledgeable and has an amazing gift with joining up the patient/ doctor partnership - I literally owe her my life.
Tracey has been a God-send to me. I found her via her website during a difficult period when I felt my GP and other health professionals were not taking my symptoms seriously & I was left feeling confused and upset. Fatigue, unexplained pain, depression, anxiety, dizziness and breathing difficulties were all issues. As well as explaining the importance of B12 testing & the lack of knowledge many doctors have about B12 deficiency, she re-assured me in a very calming way that it was easy to make things better and that I was by no means alone in feeling like this. She helped me to access treatment and understand dosing, which I found the thought of daunting, and in many ways I am now feeling the benefits. She is always there to help. A kind person who clearly wants to pass on her knowledge to help others in a similar position.
Mr C.Castaldo (London, December 2017)
Thank you again for your help Tracey, it is appreciated more than I can express. Keep up the great work. Being the person people turn to in their most desperate times I’m sure is demanding in the extreme, which in my eyes makes you a modern day Mother Theresa! Thanks for giving me somewhere to turn.
