EDUCATE YOUR DOCTOR:
Nutrition [(and medicine]) is for real people. Statistical humans are of little interest. People are unique. We must treat people with respect to their biochemical uniqueness. Roger Williams, author of Biochemical Individuality
General overview: MTHFR genetic defect - what it is and how it can affect you — www.stopthethyroidmadness.com/mthfr/
"Effects of low Methylfolate
- Low Seritonin, Dopamine, Norepinepherine.
- Low Glutathione. Needed for toxin removal and Memory
- Low Tetrahydrobiopterine. Critical in nerve protection, neurotransmitters"
"Things that aggravate the genetic disorder
- Heavy Metal load (fish, water, food) (mercury, lead, aluminum - heavy metal poisoning)
- Poor diet (highly processed foods)
- Medications (Glucophage, Birth Control, Levodopa, floroquinolones, etc.)
- Anesthesia (Nitrous Oxide)
- Other enzyme defects (B6 conversion, Methionine synthase and reductase)
- Other diseases (diabetes, Lymphoma)
- Leiden Factor V, Prothrombin 20210"
"MEASURES THAT IMPROVE SYMPTOMS:
Ask this company to send your doctor relevant information as it comes out: — www.nestlehealthscience.com/business-segments/acquisitions/pamlab
Dr. Carol S. Savage, MD suggests: "I think it will be helpful to download relevant posts that I have made on this site and mail them ahead of time to your doctor. Then contact PamLabs/Nestles and ask them to send relevant articles from reliable research to the doctor of your choice on your behalf...in other words the doctor receives a letter from PamLabs/Nestles sent to him/her at your request."

"The Principals of Medical Ethics adopted by the American Medical Association in 1980 states, A physician shall continue to study, apply, and advance scientific knowledge, make relevant information available to patients, colleagues, and the public.10 This has unfortunately been replaced with an apathetical goal to merely provide so-called adequate care. The current reimbursement system in America fosters this thinking, as the worst physicians are financially rewarded by insurance companies. The best physicians are continually fighting to provide cutting edge treatments and superior care that the insurance companies deem not medically necessary. Even the best physicians eventually get worn down and are forced to capitulate to the current substandard care." [10. The Principals of Medical Ethics adopted by the American Medical Association in 1980.]
