MTHFR & GENETIC SUPPORT
Do you either have, or suspect a MTHFR abnormality?
Or have you taken a genetic test with 23andMe and now have a colourful and expensive report that looks like gobbledegook?
Alternatively, do you have a combination of serious or long term health-sapping conditions, that you can’t resolve, despite trying everything you can think of?
Looking closely at your genetics could be the key you’ve been looking for, to help you unlock the wellness inherent in your body. A way to deeply understand how and why your body is unique. Giving you a blueprint to offset any weaknesses.
Briana’s MTHFR support for you is comprehensive. After a thorough consultation to assess your history, lifestyle and current health, she will look at the combination of your genes and your health, to tailor a wellness protocol specific to you. As you commence MTHFR treatments, lifestyle suggestions and dietary changes, you will continue to work together to manage any changes and offset any remaining imbalances that impede your return to health.
If you have completed a genetic test, she can also help you to interpret the report you have purchased through a company such as MTHFR Support or LiveWello so that you have a practical understanding of the possible implications of your genetics. Briana will write you a report to break down your methyation genes one by one to help you decide whether they are affecting you, how to minimise any trouble and how to support the proper functioning of the pathway despite less ideal genes.
Briana has completed a number of Dr. Ben Lynch’s nutrigenomic training courses, studied Dr. Amy Yasko’s protocols and undertaken coaching with MTHFR, MS and Lyme expert Fiona Chin ND. She is fascinated by the beneficial clinical implications of genomics for her clients, and continues to learn, train and critically evaluate this emerging and rapidly developing field.
Looking more closely into your MTHFR status is a good idea if you or your close family have:
- midline defects including spina bifida and tongue ties
- recurrent miscarriages, pre-eclampsia or placental abruption
- idiopathic male infertility
- down syndrome
- chronic fatigue syndrome
- multiple sclerosis
- chemical sensitivity
- parkinson’s, vascular dementia, alzheimers
- irritable bowel syndrome
- tight anal sphincters
- heart attack
- heart murmurs
- blood clots
- migraines with aura
- low HDL
- high homocysteine
- essential hypertension
- type 1 Diabetes
- decreased telomere length
- increased bone fracture risk in post-menopausal women
- premature death
- nitrous oxide toxicity
- ischemic stroke in children
- unexplained neurologic disease
- shortness of breath
**It’s very important for you to understand, that just because you have a gene, doesn’t mean it is expressing dysfunction in your body. It just has the potential to disrupt your system if it is activated as a result of stress, poor lifestyle, infection, heavy metal exposure, etc etc or a combination of these factors.
