Services/Therapies Fertility support and Pre-conception Care - Many women and men with the MTHFR gene are confused about how they should prepare for pregnancy if they have the gene mutation as folate is a critical nutrient in fertility.
Hormonal Support – methylation is crucial in helping our body eliminate toxic oestrogens and so having this assessed is key particularly if you have oestrogen dominant type conditions like fibrocystic breasts, ovaries, endometriosis, weight gain around the middle, sleep issues, mood issues particularly around your period.
Chronic Fatigue- Your energy cycle runs directly off your folate cycle and so low folate can affect your energy cycle. People who have had long term energy issues from an early age, should be checked for the MTHFR gene.
Anxiety and Depression –80% of the patients presenting to our clinic suffer anxiety and depression of some sort. This is because the MTHFR gene supplies crucial methyl groups to your neurotransmitters so you can create serotonin, dopamine , GABA, norepinephrine. So a lack of these or an imbalance can upset mood, sleep and create high levels of anxiety.
Allergies- You require methyl groups to break histamine down. So for those people with asthma, eczema, hives, food sensitivities, assisting the body to break down histamine levels is crucial.
ADD/ADHD/Autism – Dr Amy Yasko started her career treating children with autism and she has tested many thousands of her patients for the MTHFR gene and over 70% of them have the MTHFR gene mutation. Children may get improvements in their symptoms, better ability for learning and improvement in behaviour by addressing methylation.
