B12 Deficiency, Tendinosis / Tendinitis caused due to Antibiotic Treatment

I'm 29 year unmarried male. I have B12 deficiency occurred due to prolonged antibiotic dose ( total 2 months in 1 yr ) for UTI & cough treatment (3 times in year). This caused antibiotic related diarrhea & it killed intestinal flora in ileum part of intestine ( friendly bacterias). Hence B12 intrinsic factor is not getting absorbed in ileum which converts it into B12 vitamin. B12 deficiency causing my shoulder muscle pain (tendinosis / Tendinitis). The tendons pains at the attachment point to bone. Also causing neck pain. I am taking B12 injections after every 10 day for 10 months now. Oral supplements of B12 (capsules) are not helping because it is not absorbed in my intestine. No one in my family is having B12 deficiency. I eat non veg & milk products containing sufficient B12, however it is not absorbed in my intestine. Please note that I was not having B12 deficiency at the age of 28. It is caused by prolonged antibiotic treatment.

Whether Homeopathy has a solution to increase intestinal flora ( friendly bacterias) & improve digestive system to increase vitamin & mineral absorption ? Please advice.

Thank you!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take Nux Vomica 200c thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours for ony one day (not daily) and see how that affects in the next 7 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 4 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 3-4 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

No smoking within 1 hr before or after taking the medicine.

start probiotic use---daily with largest meal--as well aa foods supporting quality flora in intestines---cabbage/broccoli, and the like...the above will rebuild intestinal health----avoiding all foods with preservatives is advised--also read up on candida yeast diet-----following this diet helps in antibiotic related distress

for excat treatment will need address uti/cough issues which antibiotics were prescribed--

Hello John, thanks for your reply. I feel that u understood my problem correctly.

The culprit antibiotic which caused Diarrhea & Nausea is Azithromycin - 500. Also I had Moxikind. Doxycycline was used for UTI (spermatic cord infection).
Before 8 months I had allegic rashed & redish spots on lower abdomen, low platelates count (may b because of low immune)

During July 2010, A MD (Medicine) Doctor prescribed me VIBACT probiotic tablets containing 4 species of probiotic bacteria's & Tab Hosit (1500 mcg B12 vitamin). However is it not so effective as it is not getting absorbed in intestine. A shot of B12 injection makes me feel much better in 1-2 days. But again feel need of injection after 10 days as shoulder tendons pains & feel weak.

I understand intestine has 400 different species of friendly bacteria's. So do you advice to take multiple probiotic tablets ?

Is there any homeopathy medicine to increase intestinal flora ?

Thanks in advance.
