EHC-D and Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase (MTHFR)
EHC-Dallas is the perfect place to treat the MTHFR gene deficiency.
We understand the complete problem as we seek to evaluate you, the total package.
We treat all aspects of the gene mutation and its health implications.
- We evaluate vitamin, mineral and amino acids levels.
- We evaluate intestinal health and digestion and absorption issues.
- We determine any interfering toxicity issues whether chemical or heavy metals.
- We ascertain sensitivities which could interfere with treatment modalities.
- We establish dietary and supplemental recommendation to fit your individual needs.
EHC-D has a PhD certified clinical nutritionist who understands the important role of the MTHFR enzyme in the conversion cycle of folic acid to Levomefolic acid.
JUST HOW IMPORTANT IS LEVOMEFOLIC ACID?
It plays a vital role in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine.
If homocysteine isn’t broken down, then cysteine and methionine are not created, the conversion chain is broken and a series of events doesn’t happen.
Levomefolic acid is a universal methyl donor which means it can transfer its methyl l group to detoxify or modify compounds.
JUST HOW IMPORTANT IS METHIONINE?
Methionine is required for the production of glutathione, the body’s primary antioxidant.
Methionine is used by the liver to form SAM-e, a chemical which aids the metabolism of the dopamine, serotonin, and melatonin, neurotransmitters which affect mood and the rest and sleep cycles.
Methionine through the methylation process, aids in the production of myelin.
JUST HOW IMPORTANT IS GLUTATHIONE?
Glutathione is central to the body’s detoxification process.
Glutathione allows the body to detoxify dangerous substances from the body.
Glutathione is found in every cell to protect every tissue and organ from damage caused by toxins, free radicals and heavy metals. It is involved in tissue building and repair of cells damaged by pollution, stress, radiation and infection.
Glutathione plays a major role in disease prevention.
JUST HOW IMPORTANT IS METHYLATION?
What is methylation? – Methylation is another process associated with the MTHFR gene. This process involves the transfer of a methyl group, sulphation, to another compound.
Methylation or sulphation allows the body to modify and detoxify some potentially dangerous compounds.
Methylation is important to your brain as methionine is important in the production of myelin. Methylation is important to cardiovascular health as homocysteine must be converted to cysteine thus lessening the development of atherosclerosis.
Methylation which converts homocysteine and prevents its buildup in the blood aids in the prevention of elevated blood pressure, glaucoma, and ischemic stroke.
One gene, one folate, and one body can equal many conversions of nutrients for health.
One defect and a cascade of problems can occur with many ensuing symptoms and illnesses.
To understand the intricacies of these metabolic processes in a body surrounded by chemicals, metals, sensitivities, food genetics and contamination is vitally important to successful treatment and symptom reduction.
EHC-D through laboratory analysis,
Through food, vitamin and amino acid sensitivity testing and treatment,
Through dietary manipulation and pinpoint supplementation,
Through strict environmental controls,
Through creation of improved intestinal health,
can create an efficient and precisely instrumented program to achieve optimum results.
These results minimize the defects you can have in detoxification, folate conversion, and amino acid conversion in order to:
- Minimize toxicity,
- Sleep disorders,
- Cardiovascular disease,
- Ocular problems
- Mood disorders.
