Find Out If You Suffer from This Genetic Mutation (60% of All People Do)

16526247_sFar too many people suffer from a host of debilitating diseases.

And while this is unfortunate, the good news is many of these conditions, disease as far ranging as depression to coronary heart disease, might all have one common causation.

And that causation can be attributed to the genetic mutation of a specific gene known as MTHFR.

Now the first thing to know is you can test for an MTHFR gene malfunction with simple DNA tests. Many of these tests are covered by insurance, and once a workup on your DNA is performed you can tell if you do have an MTHFR gene mutation, as well as which one you suffer from.

If you suffer from the conditions lists later in this article it would be a good idea to get your DNA tested to see if you do in fact suffer from an MTHFR mutation.

The MTFHR gene is responsible for a process known as methylation.

Methylation is a process where chemical compounds are turned into their original form into another more “usable” form.

For instance Vitamin B9 (folic acid) needs to be methylated before it can work on turning dangerous homocysteine into beneficial methionine. Likewise vitamin b12 needs to be turned from cobalamin into methylcobalamin before it is able to help the body regulate energy levels and work on producing beneficial neurotransmitters.

When the methylation cycle is disrupted your health is disrupted.

The sad fact is many people are negatively affected by this condition… it’s estimated that as many as 60% of people have some form of the mutation.

There are anywhere from 40-60 variations of the mutation. The more severe ones reduce your body’s methylation function anywhere from 30-60%. The health complications that result can be quite severe.

Dr. Becky andrews lists the following health complications that can result from a MTHFR mutation:

  • Cardiovascular risks associated with high Homocystiene:
    • Cardiovascular disease, Atherosclerosis,  Stroke, Deep Vein Thrombosis (clots)
  • Folate deficiency related pregnancy and development problems
    • Still Births / miscarriage
    • Pre-Eclampsia
    • Neural tube defects (cleft lip, cleft palate, etc)
  • Neurotransmitter issues
    • Depression / Anxiety
    • Insomnia
    • Dementia
    • Schizophrenia
    • Parkinson’s
    • Addictions
  • Significant decrease in ability to eliminate toxins, especially heavy metals
    • High oxidative stress in all body systems
    • Contributes to:  immune disorders, allergies, autoimmune issues, fatigue, headaches, insomnia, mood issues, thyroid and menstrual disorders, kidney damage, neurological symptoms, cancer risk.
  • Complex disorders that usually cascade from a combination of the issues above:
    • Fibromyalgia
    • Chronic Fatigue
    • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
    • Autism Spectrum Disorders
    • Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Other Associated diseases (not caused by MTHFR, but significantly complicated by it)
    • Diabetes
      • Peripheral Neuropathy due to diabetes usually much more severe in patients with MTHFR deficiency
    • Lymphoma
    • Leiden Factor V

The good news with MTHFR is you can supplement to reverse the effects of a MTHFR mutation.

Supplements are simply the methylated versions of nutrients that your body should convert on its own. Fortunately they’re not ridiculously expensive… at least not compared to the medicines used to treat many of the conditions caused by poor methylation.

The one thing to keep in mind when treating a MTHFR malfunction is many times the conditions are exacerbated by poor dietary choices.

If you continue to sabotage your health with a conventional diet you’ll likely suffer the consequences.
