What is methylation?

Methylation is needed for every cell and organ in the body. MTHF (methylfolate) is a genetic mutation in which your body is unable to absorb normal B vitamins. If someone has a methylfolate defect this mutation affects our body’s ability to absorb normal folic acid and other B vitamins. Methylfolate is needed to balance our neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine. It also helps produce glutathione which helps our bodies detox from heavy metals, plastics, and other environmental toxins. DNA testing is done to see if you have a methylation problem.  Anyone with the following symptoms should be checked for methylation issues: depression, anxiety, neuropathy, Parkinson’s disease, infertility, memory loss, migraines, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, miscarriages, bipolar disorder, high homocysteine levels, anemia, heavy metal toxicity, etc. The symptoms are many so if you feel that your health issue is not getting better, come in for an assessment.
