Methyl-TetraHydroFolate Reductase is an enzyme responsible for methylation of every cell in the body. Faulty methylation, which may occur in 70% of the population is responsible for nutritional deficiencies at the cellular level. This means, that although BLOOD LEVELS of vitamins and minerals (especially the B-vitamins) may be normal, your body may not be able to utilize them.

Normal methylation is responsible for:

Cellular repair

Detoxification and Neurotransmitter production

Healthy immune system function


Here are some conditions that may be associated with MTHFR gene mutations:


Addictions: smoking, drugs, alcohol

Down’s syndrome

Frequent miscarriages

Male & female infertility

Pulmonary embolism and other blood clots

Depression & anxiety


Bipolar disorder


Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chemical Sensitivity

Parkinson’s disease

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Fortunately, testing for MTHFR deficiencies are easy and we now do this in the office, along with other micronutrient testing. And treatment is just as easy!
