Vit B12 deficiency and Candida

Do You Have a Vitamin B 12 Deficiency?

Are you suffering from strange symptoms that you can’t seem to get rid of?  

Let’s look at typical B12 Deficiency Symptoms — Do you suffer from any of these?

  • Fatigue, tiredness, or light-headedness
  • Rapid heartbeat or difficulty breathing
  • Poor memory or difficulty concentrating
  • Numbness and tingling of hands or feet
  • Difficulty with balance, poor coordination
  • Pale skin
  • Sore tongue
  • Easy bruising or bleeding gums
  • Upset stomach
  • Unexplainable weight loss
  • Depression, irritability, paranoia, mania, hallucinations
If you answered “yes” to any of the above, it might be worth getting tested for B12 deficiency, especially if you are vegan.

Here’s how I came across this:

The past two weeks I noticed that my tongue felt quite sore, but I didn’t think anything of it because I had just bought a tongue scraper (yes, there is such a thing, and if you haven’t got one I strongly recommend you get one, because it’s a really important weapon in the fight against oral thrush, and much more hygienic and effective than using a toothbrush to clean your tongue).

I developed a sore throat and despite my attempts at getting rid of it with natural remedies like gargling with sage tea I couldn’t shake it off. So I thought it might have to do with the fact that I was under a lot of stress and perhaps my adrenals were struggling so I started taking adrenal support supplements. But the sore tongue remained, and I even developed a burning sensation in my stomach. I thought this was weird, because I never have any stomach issues, ever!

I wondered if I had been eating too much protein from meat, and therefore too acidic. But when I switched to a more alkaline diet the symptoms remained, and I felt progressively agitated. So I went through my food diary again because I remembered that I had these issues before at the beginning of my Candida journey, and low and behold I could find the entries that showed me the identical symptoms and how I got rid of it in the end.

As it turned out it was a simple matter of taking Vitamin B supplements and getting a few nights of decent sleep

The lesson here:

Stop burning the candle on both ends – get plenty of rest and sleep and don’t despair when you hit a plateau in your healing. You’re doing fine :)

Sometimes you only need to make a small change and all the missing pieces fall into place. So if you are doing all the right things, eating really clean… and still don’t see results, think outside the box, get your Vitamin & Mineral levels checked.

There might just be an imbalance that has ripple effects on other areas I your body and health. Also, see if you can start a food journal to trace back what foods might not agree with you as well as you might think.

These are natural food sources for B12:  Beef liver and clams, fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk, and other dairy products.
