Chronic Illness & MTHFR Genetic Defects Are Usually Linked

MTHFR defects affect 30-40% of the population

Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) is the regulatory enzyme for the conversion of homocysteine to methionine.

There are two common types, or variants, of MTHFR mutations: C677T and A1298C. These gene mutations are relatively common but should not be dismissed as many medical doctors will do due to their lack of knowledge about this gene and the impact of mutations.

The C677T mutation in the MTHFR gene affects folate distribution, and homozygosity for the T allele may be associated with an increased risk of NTDs.The A1298C mutation, like the C677T mutation, results in a decrease in MTHFR activity that is more pronounced in the homozygous (CC) than in the heterozygous (AC) or normal (AA) states, and does not result in a thermolabile protein.

Symptoms associated with MTHFR mutations, include fatigue, chronic pain, brain fog, depression and anxiety, estrogen dominance, and headaches. Those with chronic health conditions, such as Lyme disease and multiple sclerosis.

An increase in homocysteine levels caused by MTHFR gene polymorphisms have been studied as possible risk factors for a variety of common conditions. These include high blood pressure (hypertension), blood clots, pregnancy loss, psychiatric disorders, and certain types of cancer.

Those with mutations should avoid all products with added or fortified folic acid which is the synthetic form of vitamin B9 found in fortified supplements (pregnancy supplements) breads, cereals and commercially produced flours. Avoid processed foods that have synthetic folic acid added to them.

I Can Help

I’m Anthony Beven, a certified live blood analyst and nutritional detox coach. I have a double BA, and have taken graduate-level coursework in gastrointestinal physiology and client evaluation. I detoxed my own body after back-to-back HIV and diagnoses. I’ve been doing this for several years. I have helped thousands of chronically-ill clients utilizing nutritional detoxing coaching knowledge, techniques and protocols. I’m top-rated on Google and Facebook reviews. I’ve been featured on national T.V., radio and on news websites.

My Approach

Typically, MTHFR sufferers require at minimum 6-12 months of detoxing due to the buildup of toxins inside the body over the years. After this, at least 1-2 cleanses annually to keep the body healthy, while eating properly and taking certain specialty supplements.

The first thing we have to do is confirm defect/s with the MTHFR gene. I do this with a DNA swab test. This will be sent to you, and then you send it back. The results take 7-14 days to come back from the lab once I receive the swab back from you.

The results come in a form of 24-page report covering seven key areas, including lipid metabolism, methylation, detoxification, inflammation, oxidative stress, bone health, insulin sensitivity and of course, MTHFR genetic defects. The report also provides eating and supplements recommendations. This report is $360, and includes shipping standard rate cost to you.

A Structured Plan

I’ve worked with hundreds of MTHFR clients, who didn’t know what their genetic problem is or they did know and didn’t know how-to detox and heal. I’ve got the experience and then results to help you get “unstuck.”

My approach includes:

  • Developing a detox plan based on your DNA results report, inclusive of elimination of Candida, parasites, heavy metals and more; restoration of enzyme functionality, gut microbiome and minerals inside the body; and a detox therapy plan detailing how-to utilize modalities like infrared sauna to remove toxins from the body and alkaline water flushing.
  • Weekly or biweekly coaching check-ins.
  • Plant-based or vegan eating routine & meal plans – most MTHFR sufferers don’t respond well to meat protein. This is due to the impact MTHFR defects have on enzyme functionality.
