I'm very dependent on the B12 protocol, without it I'm completely bed bound and can hardly communicate. Before christmas I got stomach issues, candida and this has led to allergi against vitamin C. I'm testing different kinds but it seems I just can't tolerate it and it gets worse every time I take it. I've stopped now and am falling like a rock. If this continues I won't be able to surf the net or get up at all. Without C I have no effect from B12. Is there any solution to this? Except stopping everything and trying to heal the gut. Not sure that would even work when I have so little energy. I've had to increase my cofactors regularly over the years. Took 4 grams of C in 2014, have had to take 5 in 2015 to have effect from B12 (and not having my need for folate go through the roof). Does anyone know why this is? I don't think it's just the gut and bad uptake, it seems there is something more since I seem to need a lot through the skin too. I have lithium ororate at home but haven't tried it. Could lack of lithium be a reason to why I've needed more and more over time? In 2007, when I started B12, it was enough just taking pills. Then I needed shots and then more and more until I had no effect. So I stopped it and lay bed bound for years. Then I started @Freddd 's protocol and got B12 working again. I'm thinking that if I could get back to when I only needed the vitamin C (and other cofactors) I get from food to get B12 to work, maybe I could get through this. So, bottom line: How do I decrease my need for C so that B12 can work anyway? Quite desperate, grateful for help. (I'm working on my gut as much as I can but it will be difficult when I'm stuck in bed.) @caledonia ? @ahmo ? PS. I know vitamin C allergy is more or less unheard of but some people seem to have it. My dad has it too and I seem to get everything he gets.
