Linking Lifelong Health Struggles with Vitamin B12 Deficiency
In this episode, I’m talking with Jamie Travathan about the power of addressing nutritional deficiencies, particularly vitamin B12 deficiency.
Jamie’s health story started as a child with digestive issues, particularly severe constipation, and food sensitivities. In her 20s, she began having really irregular menstrual cycles. And oddly, it seemed like she was aging prematurely. Her hair was turning gray, she couldn’t think clearly, and lacked energy. At age 32, she could barely get out of bed.
After seeing at least 10 conventional doctors, she began looking elsewhere for answers. She ultimately found she had pernicious anemia, an autoimmune condition that is one of the causes of vitamin B12 deficiency. Left untreated, it can cause serious neurological issues.
In this episode, we discuss…
- The gut dysbiosis Jamie found behind her digestive issues
- What is pernicious anemia and the critical importance of vitamin B12
- A vegetarian diet and pernicious anemia
- How Jamie brought her B12 vitamin levels back up to healthy levels
- The diet changes that helped Jamie heal her gut
- The energetic, mental and physical causes of autoimmunity
- The role of mindset in healing
- And how the steps she took restored her gut, brain, energy and hormones
