Hydroxy B12 Injections

Hydroxocobalamin is a natural form of B12 that is the second most common form found in the blood, and it is the most prevalent B12 form in natural foods.  Hydroxocobalamin injections are particularly advantageous because hydroxocobalamin is remarkably well absorbed by the body. Therefore, in many countries, it is the standard for vitamin B12 injections (compared to the synthetic alternative cyanocobalamin). An untreated vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to an array of health issues ranging from fatigue to neurological problems. The most obvious benefit of receiving vitamin B-12 shots is treating a vitamin B-12 deficiency and avoiding its associated symptoms.

B-12 shots can reduce the risk of some serious complications associated with vitamin B-12 deficiency including:

  • heart disease
  • neurocognitive disorders
  • coordination problems (ataxia)
  • peripheral neuropathy
  • vision loss
  • infertility (although this usually resolves with B-12 treatment)
  • neural tube defects in the babies of women with B-12 deficiency

 

Methyl B12 Injections

Methyl B12 injections are a methylated form of B12. Out of the B12 family, only methyl B12, or MB12 has the ability to activate the methylation biochemical pathway directly because of the donation of a “methyl” group.  Although it sounds complex, it’s actually a simple but essential chemical process that is happening constantly in your body. Methylation involves adding a ‘methyl group’ onto other chemical compounds which then allows the body to do most of its processes. Because it is so essential, and because of our busy lifestyles and nutrient-depleted foods, it could be that many of us need support when it comes to methylation.

 

MIC B12 Injections

MIC B12 is a fat burning, liver supporting, energy producing injection that can be used to facilitate weight loss or simply for general health.

What is in a MIC B12 injection:

  • Methionine, an essential amino acid, helps the liver breakdown fats, lowers cholesterol, relieves fatigue and helps allergies by lowering histamine release
  • Inositol, a B vitamin, helps the breakdown of fats, lowers cholesterol, and helps control mood and appetite
  • Choline, an essential nutrient, helps the liver breakdown fats and excrete toxins
  • B12, a vitamin that boosts energy and overall metabolic rate, assists in the burning of stored body fat, helps detox, and helps regulate sleep, mood, and appetite

Here’s what people are saying about us…

  • “Practitioner Ledda and the staff are very knowledgeable about natural approaches to healthcare and also traditional medicine, and that balance felt comfortable to me. I have received help with blood pressure control, pain management, bone density improvement, and absorption of nutrients through natural means instead of medicine.  I would highly recommend this office for either simple or complex health problems or just for prevention and maintenance.”

    Anonymous Little Mountain, SC
  • “I have been seeing Practitioner Ledda for a few years now and she has helped me tremendously in my healing journey from Mycotoxins and Lyme Disease. She has such compassionate heart towards her patients and I feel blessed to have found her. The whole staff at ProHealth Center is amazing and I am grateful for the care I receive here. It has given me my life back!”

    E. Zimmerman Fountain Inn, SC
  • "My medical doctors had me on two different pain killers (Neurotin and Tramadol). I was taking a total of up to five each day, which only decreased my pain level from a 9-10 down to a 6-7.

    After three months of Dr. Snider’s treatments, the pain in my right shoulder is virtually gone! As of this writing, I have not taken a single pain pill in over a month."

    D. Wilder
  • "I had severe migraines starting in 2012 in my sophomore year of college.  They progressed to becoming so severe that I could not get out of bed, eat, or be exposed to strong smells or light. 

    I have had tremendous results under Dr. Snider’s care. I have more energy and feel more focused, and I am able to do the things I love without having to cancel plans at the last minute because of a migraine."

    L. Rumfelt
  • "I started experiencing changes with my body shortly after starting care. My blood pressure has dropped to a normal range and has stabilized. I have much less pressure in my back and head – all mobility is better. My heart rate is lower and my episodes of dizziness are much less intense. Most importantly, I am in a much better place emotionally. The “not knowing” added so much stress –  Now I have answers, and I know the steps I need to take to continue to improve my health."

    M. Stewart
  • "I had suffered with pain for 5 LONG YEARS, been on numerous medications, muscle relaxers, Prednisone, and massage therapy, all to no avail.  My headaches were getting debilitating and lasting up to 8 hours before I went to ProHealth Center. 

    Dr. Snider was the first to help me in finding long term relief.  All of the symptoms I had experienced for so long ceased within 2 weeks of beginning treatment with Dr. Snider! Now I only have headaches occasionally, and my other symptoms are gone."
