We may be exposed to poisonous gases and chemical toxins to different degrees at some point in our lives, whether it be from air pollution, exhaust fumes, pesticides, cleaning products or from faulty or poorly fitted appliances within our homes or workplaces. Flood, fire and warfare are all situations where potential exposure to toxic gases can occur.
However, B12 in the form of hydroxocobalamin is an excellent toxin scavenger, this means that if you are exposed your levels of B12 could be inactivated and depleted.
Could you be an unknowing victim? Do you have diagnosis of CFS, ME, fibromyalgia, depression, Alzheimer’s and have not had thorough screening for B12 deficiency?
Late last year I met Belinda Goldsmid, she and her family were chronically exposed to products of combustion, including carbon monoxide (CO). It was leaking into their home from a poorly installed and situated boiler flue. This had devastating health and social effects. Continual low level exposure can can lead to chronic ill-health, poor mental health and extremely debilitating symptoms.
Belinda is now experiencing phenomenal improvement of her previous debilitating symptoms with the use of B12 (hydroxocobalamin) injections.
Maybe the origin or the exacerbation of your B12 deficiency can be traced back to toxic exposure?
