You may have heard about the importance of getting testing for MTHFR if you are trying to conceive…especially if you have experienced miscarriage.
It’s one of the tests we request for our Blood Chemistry Review.
But do you know what it really means?
Do you know how to support your methylation pathways?
This is a question we get all the time – so I wanted to bring on a Functional Medicine doctor who is an expert with MTHFR.
In this episode you’ll learn:
1) The significance of the MTHFR gene mutation for female fertility plus the importance of the male partner being tested too.
2) The difference between homozygous and heterozygous for the MTHFR gene mutation.
3) How methylation impacts estrogen (we want the right balance). Many women have high estrogen (symptoms such as PMS, tender breasts, decreased sex drive, mood swings, headaches) or low estrogen (hot flashes, irregular periods, increase UTI’s).
4) How do we support methylation? Lifestyle and supplement recommendations – and why it is important to AVOID synthetic folate (folic acid).
