How we treat MTHFR conditions
When people first find out that they have the MTHFR gene, the next question is usually what do I do about it? And it’s a great question, often once people have been diagnosed with MTHFR they are told to “take activated folate” which more often than not is a very bad and dangerous idea. MTHFR gene mutations affect people in different ways so it’s important to understand that there is a right way to treat the condition and a wrong way.
Treating MTHFR the wrong way
Taking actived folate or 5 MTHF, is not always the best treatment and in fact can be seriously dangerous causing a condition known as “methyl trapping”, this condition can result is a person taking activated folate to have a sharp decline into depression and can result in suicide. Thus we suggest you do not take any form of active folate without the supervision of a MTHFR practitioner.
Further, when you have been diagnosed with MTHFR there are many other problems that need to be evaluated to be able to optimize the health of a person who has the disorder, this can not be done by taking activated folate and not seeking professional help. Additional problems not properly evaluated by a MTHFR professional practitioner are associated with serious diseases both physically and mentally that can be monitored, treated and even prevented.
Treating MTHFR the right way
Treating the MTHFR gene defect the right way involves seeking out a professional MTHFR practitioner who understands the problems associated with the condition and can provide treatments in the right way for each person as an individual. We provide a comprehensive approach to treating the condition, this means understanding which gene alterations you have, how they are affecting you & your health, your family history, your risks and providing a customized treatment process.
Often people who have the gene alteration have had it for years without showing obvious MTHFR symptoms, this means that over time those with MTHFR have more often than not been in poor health for some time, this means that these people need further attention to other areas of their health to assist in restoring there overall health. So, treating MTHFR the right way means looking at all aspects of your health moving forward with treatments and assisting the body to resolve issues that come from having the condition.
Nutritional damage & MTHFR
One of the key problems of having the MTHFR gene mutation is “nutritional damage”, those with the condition will have abnormal nutritional imbalances and special needs for certain nutrients and nutritional support. Our MTHFR practitioners understand how to evaluate each person as an individual when it comes to nutritional damage, this enables us to provide specific targeted nutritional treatments that work best for our patients.
Mental health & MTHFR
Some people with MTHFR present with mental health problems, these can often get worse over time without proper treatment. Different variations of the gene mutations and nutritional imbalances can cause serious mental health issues, its important to understand that those who have been diagnosed with the MTHFR gene defect and have symptoms of mental illness need the right treatments that support mental health. Our MTHFR practitioners can help identify key points that cause various mental health problems and provide specific treatments to bring relief from mental health problems.
Prevention of disease & MTHFR
People with gene mutations are predisposed to certain diseases, often serious yet preventable diseases, these people need extra support to prevent those diseases and in fact when we know which gene alterations we have this puts us at an advantage in being able to work toward supporting those areas of your health that are more predisposed to certain disease. Our practitioners can help you identify your personal predispositions to disease and provide preventive treatments.
