Genetic Solutions Class at RHMD
Sep 01, 2017 11:45AM
Radiantly Healthy MD (RHMD) is pleased to offer the MTHFR Genetic Solutions Class. “Up to one-half of our population is affected by a gene mutation that impacts a whole host of health conditions,” says Rebecca Hunton, MD, founder of RHMD. In this special class participants will learn if they are affected by the MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase) gene mutation, understand their genetic profile, learn what nutrients they need, and receive a personalized treatment plan.
“When the MTHFR gene mutates, it loses its ability to properly convert folate (vitamin B9) into methyfolate, which can set the stage for serious conditions and illnesses,” says Dr. Hunton. “MTHFR is a key player in our methylation pathway. Unfortunately, over the last 50 years or so, most of the chemicals we have introduced into our environment (and ourselves) use this pathway to leave our bodies. Compounding the problem is the fact that taking a folic acid supplement can be harmful for those with this mutation, making most multi-vitamins a dangerous gamble if you don't know your MTHFR status.”
Conditions associated with the MTHFR mutation include: mood, heart disease, autoimmune disease, infertility, birth defects, cancer, ADHD/ADD/autism, fatigue, headaches or migraines, brain fog, low immunity, body aches (including fibromyalgia or arthritis), inability to detox sufficiently, and more.
The class will meet for two sessions on September 12 and October 10 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
