Homeopathy for Vitamin B-12 Deficiency 

Vitamin B12 is a water soluble vitamin that plays a major role in red blood cell production and also ensures that the nervous system works properly. A person may have a deficiency if he does not take food that contains vitamin B12 (found in animal foods like fish, meats,  eggs, dairy and  food products that are fortified with B12 like some cereals, breads). Homeopathy for Vitamin B deficiency like Arsenic help provide relief in symptoms like weakness, tiredness, nerve complaints including numbness & tingling.  Vitamin B deficiency may also occur if the body of a person is not able to absorb this vitamin from the food eaten due to some of the underlying medical health conditions. Homeopathy for Vitamin B

First example of such conditions is celiac disease (It is an autoimmune disease in which eating gluten that is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye triggers an immune response that results in damage to the lining of the small intestine. It prevents absorbing  nutrients from food). Second is Crohn’s disease (It is one of the two inflammatory bowel diseases that leads to  inflammation in gastrointestinal tract). Next it can occur in case of atrophic gastritis (Damage to stomach lining that arises from long term inflammation of the stomach).
Lastly, it can occur in pernicious anaemia (a medical condition in which the blood lacks enough red blood cells due to lack of an intrinsic factor that helps to absorb  vitamin B 12 needed to produce  proper red blood cells). The persons who are strictly vegetarian, who are elderly, or have some surgery done to  remove a part of the intestine  that absorbs B12 and taking medicine metformin  or  antacid drugs for a long time are at risk of developing this deficiency.


In case of mild deficiency there may occur no symptoms at all. But if this deficiency goes unchecked then signs and symptoms start to appear. It firstly can lead to pale skin,  weakness, tiredness. Secondly it may cause nerve complaints including numbness, tingling, pin needle sensation, weakness of muscles and affect balance and coordination and cause trouble walking resulting in frequent falling. Other than this there may occur inflammation of tongue (glossitis) and mouth ulcers. Next there may occur palpitation of heart, shortness of breath and dizziness. It may also affect vision and cause blurred vision.  Apart from these it may lead to diarrhea, gas, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting. Lastly it can affect the mind and cause problems including depression, irritability, thinking difficulty, memory loss.
