Anyone out there read the report/study that came out of the Netherlands on the so-called problems related to children on a macrobiotic diet and vitamin B-12 deficiency? I think the study has been mis-interpreted by western medicine but maybe not. How can I make sure I am getting enough B-12 in my diet? Anyone recommend B-12 shots ?

  • Or vitamin B complex tablet suplements...I think you can do that on your own or consult a physician regarding your nutrition.

  • The Macrobiotic diet is a very good healing diet, but in my opinion it is very hard to get all your nutrients if you do this long term. Certain sea vegetables, kombu and wakame and others, have some B12 in them. But supplementation is best, I think. Try to find a good quality sublingual tablet. Shots are good as well, but less convenient. Best wishes.DOM
