In Australia recent news outlets said that mental health problems are costing the economy over 500 million dollars per day, yes per day and this figure is just the beginning according to authorities who are quoting a 70% increase in reported mental illnesses over the last 10-15 years. These figures are staggering, they are growing fast and it says a lot for the conventional approaches used by medical science in trying to deal with mental illness without factoring in gene mutations. Gene mutations that are highly associated with mental illness such as MTHFR gene mutations and a number of other gene mutations we know have a major impact on peoples mental health that simply don’t get the attention they deserve.
How does MTHFR gene mutations cause mental health problems?
The easy answer to this question is that reduced ability to use your folate means not having enough resources to support other organs, biochemistry, proper detoxification and making enough balanced neurotransmitters. For example less folate = less overall B vitamins being able to work together, then this goes on to affect the energy systems of the body which begin to affect all the varied systems the body uses to maintain good mental health, but its the chain reaction that that leads to the real causes of mental health problems.
So MTHFR gene mutations are contributing to mental health problems but they are not working alone, in fact there are a bunch of genetic mutations that contribute considerably toward mental health problems, some of these mutations include COMT, MAO, VDR, FUT2 and many more but it doesn’t stop there. Often mental health problems start as a result of becoming toxic first and this leads to the activation of these gene mutations so it’s rarely ever a simple solution to understanding a mental health problem at a deep level unless you know what to look for first.
Environmental pollution, will it destroy our mental health?
If you want to prevent the destruction of the economy before its to late, or even solve the mental health crisis that’s just getting started, think “environmental pollution”. After years of treating patients with gene mutations the one thing that stands out is toxic substances that come form the modern industrial age and it’s these things among many things that directly influence mental health via gene mutations.
The unfortunate truth is that just about everything we use, consume, are around and have in our everyday lives is environmental pollution and mostly it is disregarded as a cause of mental illness because people cant see it and medical science mostly ignores it which is why its growing so rapidly.
Reversing mental illness with a modern approach
Times change, the environment has changed and these days they are changing rapidly, so the causes of mental illness have changed, yet the old ways of dealing with it are still being used by medical science with many people telling us their drugs just aren’t working to solve depression, anxiety and many other mental illnesses but the numbers don’t lie, this old approach is losing the battle and fast, now is the time to approach mental health using a modern approach, one that works to reverse mental illness and support a persons individual genetic weaknesses against their personal susceptibility to environmental pollution.
The dark side of gene mutations and mental health problems
One of the big problems with gene mutations and mental health is that those people who suffer from mental health problems are having children who more often than not end up with similar mental health problems and are often worse than their parents. This is what is behind the massive growth in the mental health problems. This means that making sure you deal with your mental health problems the right way, at a genetic level can mean that we create a younger generation of children who don’t have to go through this massive and growing mental health problem and also do it in a world that’s not financially broken.
