The Hidden Culprit Underlying Your Health Issues

I want 30 seconds of your life to potentially transform your health forever. How? Simply take the following health quiz.

Do you struggle with even ONE of the following symptoms?

  • Chronic Headaches
  • Impaired Digestion
  • Skin Rashes (eczema, hives, etc)
  • Fatigue
  • Getting Sick (Impaired Immunity)
  • Infertility/Miscarriages
  • PCOS, PMS, Hormone Imbalance, Acne
  • Chronic Pain, Arthritis, Inflammation
  • Depression, Anxiety, Insomnia
  • Autoimmune (hashimotos, celiac, etc)
  • Food Sensitivities
  • Allergies
  • Diagnosed Conditions like IBS, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia?

If you answered ‘yes’ to even ONE of these questions, I want you to take this very seriously. It may contain the hidden key to completely reversing your chronic symptoms, FOR GOOD.

What do all of these health issues have in common?

The answer is MTHFR. It is a gene mutation. And if you have read this far, I'd bet money you have it (literally, I provide a money back guarantee if you get tested and don't have it).

So, what the $#%@ is MTHFR?

It kind of looks like a text acronym for a curse word doesn’t it? And it might as well be for havoc it can create in the body. If you try to find info on the internet about ‘MTHFR’, you will run into pages of medical text book jargonize that you have to weed through until you are cursing MTHFR-F$$#er!!! So here is a high level overview of the MTHFR Gene Mutation that is likely underlying your health issues:

A mutation on the MTHFR gene means there is an abnormality in the MTHFR enzyme. The MTHFR enzyme is like a key that fits into the lock of many biochemical processes, but one of the main ones is your body's ability to breakdown B-vitamins, in particular Folate. The MTHFR enzyme is supposed to efficiently transform Folate into 5-MTHF (by a process known as methylation). But if you have the gene mutation, your ability to perform this key biological function may be impaired by as much as 90%. Why does that matter? Because methylation is responsible for:

  • Cellular Repair
  • Detoxification
  • Immune System Function
  • Neurotransmitter Production

Those are some pretty key health processes.

As you can see from the image, being able to break down Folate, a B-Vitamin, into its end-product, 5-MTHF, drives 1) detoxification, 2) inflammation reduction, and 3) neurotransmitter production. If you have the MTHFR gene mutation, your ability to break down Folate can be impaired by up to 90%!

In the end, this dysfunction can lead to:

  • High levels of inflammation and free radicals
  • Impaired detoxification
  • Faulty neurotransmitter production

Is it any wonder then, that this gene mutation can manifest in your body as a variety of seemingly unrelated health issues?

Here's the good news. Finding out that you have this mutation is easy. And once you know you have it, you can work with it. Get tested, and get on the road to feeling better. Don't put your health and life on hold for one more second. It's time you stop suffering and start focusing on the things you really care about: your relationships, your career, your passions. I can show you how.

By some estimates up to 90% of the population have some level of this gene mutation. Wouldn't it be good to get an answer? It is easy to order a test for this mutation via your doctor, all you have to do is ask!
