Your genes play a vital role in your health. How you manage stress, whether or not you exercise, and what you eat, can effect specific gene expression, and in turn, those genes’ methylation pathways can have an effect on the development of various conditions, such as cancer or heart disease, to name a few.
Specifically, a mutation in the MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase) enzyme, which consists of 50+ genes, has been found to block proper function of methylation pathways. When this is found to be the case via an MTHFR test, nutrient supplementation in the form of L-5 MTHFR can be administered.
As an integral part of Concierge Wellness Care, Dr. Sage Campione provides MTHFR panel testing to specifically identify the vital nutrients your body needs.
If you would like to speak with Dr. Sage about MTHFR Methylation or if you would like to learn more about the MTHFR and your nutrition needs, please complete your confidential health check questionnaire here.
After you submit your questionnaire, you’ll be redirected to reserve a free, 20-minute private consultation with Dr. Sage.
Getting sick upon toxicant exposure and failing to get well — may be driven by epigenetic changes, which occur when the environment alters the expression of genes without changing the core DNA code itself. “Environmental events can dramatically impact gene activity,” explains reproductive endocrinologist Frederick vom Saal of the University of Missouri-Columbia. “Once genes are switched on,” says Vom Saal, “and once you are sensitized, you essentially have a reprogrammed cell.
