I have spent the last few days looking through the B 2 I love you! thread, the Hair Analysis one and the one that does not love B 2. The reason is that I have run into difficulties on the whole food plant based SOS (no sugar oil or salt) diet. This was preceeded by the AIP paleo one which made me run into problems with the high fat ie gall bladder attackes and weight gain. Prior to that I was eating macrobiotic and did not improve enough. I think it is B 12 deficiency as I am eating no animal products at all and despite taking Hydroxycobalamine 98 mcg. I have been having insomnia again the last few weeks and my stools have not been formed which I understand to be folate deficiency. So I decided that in order to correct the deficiencies I need to make sure that my B 2 is up as I have been deficient in this vitamin before and had a huge improvement when Christine Heubner (Dog Person) advised it, and my eyes have been itching. So for 2 days running I have taken a smudgen of R5P on the end of a wet fingertip which is a very small amount and had 2 good nights sleep. It is much less than I took before but I am not willing to increase it yet until I have the supplements I need that is to say - folinic acid and methyl folate and possibly methyl B 12. If anyone can advise good ones in the UK I will be grateful. I am not peeing out yellow yet. I am confident that the WFPB diet will have put me in a much better position to tackle my methylation problems. There have been significant improvements to my health including curing diabetes and lowering blood pressure to normal. I have also had loads more energy before this B 12 thing popped up. Please accept my apologies to the people who asked me questions to which I did not reply. I had a tough time last year moving house.
