Giving You Back YOUR Life

Come along and support our coffee mornings

Do you feel alone in your suffering?  Well that makes lots of us.  Isn't it silly to feel lonely, when other people feel lonely too!

That's why we run coffee mornings, once a month on the second Tuesday of the month 10:30 - 12:00.
At the moment all of our coffee mornings are held in East Durham, alternating between Horden Welfare Club in Horden, Peterlee (North East England, UK) and East Durham Trust at Community House, Yohden Rd, Peterlee (North East England, UK).
You are certainly welcome to join us and meet like-minded people, and learn.  See the EVENTS DIARY for more details

Julia found her eyesight going as her eyes refused to focus on the same things as each other. She's been for all sorts of tests and treatment, but now that she's on B12 replacement therapy she's starting to see an improvement.
The Scottish Parliament discusses Pernicious Anaemia and vitamin B12 deficiency on Wednesday 7 March 2012.
This video is over 1 hour long and represents real political change - we are at last on our way.
Just the way it works for humans, oral B12 can make a world of a difference for your pet. My old cat Smudge chases the young cat again, climbs ladders (and climbs down herself), and is generally as fit as she was many years ago.
Donna, like so many women, wants to live a normal life. Vitamin B12 could give her that chance.
New documentary out from Elissa Leonard in North America, featuring Sally Pacholok and many other internationally renowned experts.
June describes her suffering when doctors didn't follow the standard protocol after any stomach or intestinal operation - to offer B12 replacement therapy
Frankie tells of how she suffered, the tests she had to endure until doctors worked out what was wrong, and what a difference it has made.
The definitive and original guide to B12 deficiency, Dr Chandy interviewed by Chris Jackson of UK BBC Inside Out Team broadcast 31 Oct 2008.
Dr Joseph Chandy explains symptoms and shows the restorative effect on one patient (other patients' families have asked that we edit out their stories unfortunately)
The local MP (Grahame Morris MP for Easington - who was a BMS (BioMedical Scientist) in the labs at Sunderland Royal Infirmary) interviews people with B12 deficiency to hear their story (August 27 2010). Here Jane describes the symptoms, and how she can't wait for her next B12 injection (in fact, she knows that she needs injections every 2 weeks because she's keeping a diary of the symptoms). We're restricted how often the GP can give injections, which is why we want to raise awareness.
Dr Chandy was nominated for the North East Local Heroes award. The interviewer was at first surprised - people don't get awards for doing what they are paid to do - but she persisted.
