Hi Yvette; The H. Pylori section here under ailments includes about every treatment I've seen, that's been used effectively against this parasite, which also robs us of vital nutrients, B12 being one of them. (low stomach acid often allows pathogens to invade, and low stomach acid makes it difficult to absorb nutrients. ) Sometimes weight loss in general, and muscle loss in particular may be a sign of B12 deficiency. A sublingual lozenge of methylcobalamin, at about 1000 mcg. or so is fairly easy for most people to absorb.
