Giving You Back YOUR Life

Testimonials

We've been surprised how many people, and how many conditions, benefit from B12 replacement therapy.  It isn't a wonder drug - it's a simple vitamin - but it affects all parts of the body and when you are lacking B12 (you have B12 deficiency) it can show up in many many different ways.

See the testimonials from patients of Dr Chandy and other members of the Vitamin B12 Patient Support Group at the bottom of the page.


Pernicious anemia and hair loss

Janette first appeared in the BBC InsideOut documentary in October 2006. Since then the NHS has forced her doctor to withdraw B12 replacement therapy on a number of occasions, and she tells of her struggles with having B12 and then having it taken away. She has bravely agreed to be filmed without her usual wig, but her memory is playing up because it is so long since her last injection.

It works on pets too - cat rolling back the years

Jane and her husband describe symptoms of pernicious anaemia and B12 deficiency

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.
