METHYLATION AND GENE MUTATION
• 14 min. read
Have you or a loved one been diagnosed with an MTHFR gene mutation? These days special courses are held for this gene mutation, but the information being shared is fundamentally wrong. There is actually no such thing as an MTHFR gene mutation, and misinformation on the subject is keeping people from getting the right answers to their health problems. Although doctors originally only diagnosed one MTHFR gene mutation, now there are different diagnoses for this gene mutation that you can be given, and as this misinformation continues to take hold, more and more MTHFR gene mutations will be created.
What you need to know is that if you tested positive for an MTHFR gene mutation, there is another problem causing the test result. Your gene has not mutated. For the sake of your health and the health of your loved ones, it is important that you know the truth about this erroneous theory and move forward once you realize it. Anthony William explains this truth in detail in Liver Help and How You Can Heal Yourself. Because the MTHFR gene mutation is not actually a genetic problem, the underlying cause that can cause many symptoms and diseases can be treated.
Who is to blame?
If you have an autoimmune disease, you've probably been told by a well-meaning doctor or specialist that your body is attacking itself. This belief stems from medical research and medical science being ignorant of the true root causes of these mysterious illnesses. If you want to learn more about chronic illness and the misinformation surrounding autoimmune diseases, check out Anthony William's first book, The Healing Medium .
Unfortunately, this is not the only blame game going on in medical circles these days. People's genes are also unfairly blamed. If you suffer from a mysterious disease with unknown causes, you may have been told that you have "bad genes", "dysfunctional genes", "gene mutation" or "defective genes". Again, the blame falls on you and your body because medical research and medical science have yet to find real answers to these health problems.
The topic of gene mutations is becoming more and more popular, and it is extremely important that you and your loved ones do not fall victim to the blame being thrown on your genes. Well-meaning doctors and specialists get carried away with the idea that there is a connection between people's health problems and their genes. It's easy to look at hereditary traits passed down from generation to generation and start to believe that your genes play a role in the health problems you face. Yes, your mother, grandfather or other family members may look like you and even exhibit similar health symptoms, but that does not mean that your genes are linked to the chronic diseases that plague you! If this harmful, misconception continues to spread, generations to come will believe that all their chronic diseases stem from problems related to genes and billions of dollars will be spent researching this misconception while people continue to get sicker and sicker. .
What is MTHFR gene mutation?
If your doctor or specialist tells you that you have an MTHFR gene mutation, they will most likely explain that this means that your body is unable to convert folate or folic acid into a usable form. They may also indicate that your body is having difficulty with some important conversion and methylation processes. There is some truth to this statement, but your body's inability to convert, methylate, or detox properly has nothing to do with the gene mutation problem.
Medical science now suggests that some people have mutated genes that no longer produce the necessary enzyme (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase) needed for functions such as glutathione production and the easy absorption of folate and folic acid. This is not true. There's another reason you might not be methylating correctly, and it's not in your genes.
The truth about genes
The genes in our bodies have multiple purposes and act in multiple ways, but they can never mutate. It is extremely important to understand this - your genes cannot mutate. If a gene interacts with some kind of pollutant, it might not function as well, but it still won't technically mutate. If you are ever diagnosed with an MTHFR gene mutation, know that your gene is not mutated or even problematic. Something else in your body is causing the defective MTHFR gene mutation test.
MTHFR gene mutation test
The MTHFR gene mutation test is currently in the early stages of development and is not as accurate as the medical community believes. If you decide to get tested, it's important to know what the results really mean for you and your health. The MTHFR gene mutation test, like the antinuclear antibody (ANA) test and the C-reactive protein test, is just a basic test that reveals inflammation in the body. Although this test is conducted under the guise of a gene test and examines a real gene, ultimately it is only able to show whether there is inflammation in the body. Fortunately, once you are aware that the test is flawed and there is another reason why you tested positive, you can take the necessary steps to begin treatment.
Pay attention to the liver
If you have been told that you have a gene mutation, you can now ignore this information. It is not accurate. In reality, it is very likely that you have a problem in your liver. We recommend you read Liver Help to get the truth about what's going on in your body and how you can heal yourself and prevent future ailments. There may also be a problem in the intestinal tract, but usually the main problem is in the liver. The inflammation that causes a positive MTHFR gene mutation test is due to a toxic byproduct that wreaks havoc as it travels from the liver into the bloodstream. This may play a role in the formation of abnormal homocysteine levels. Typically, the liver harbors viruses, heavy metals, or a combination of these that produce toxic byproducts. As the amount of byproducts increases over time, the liver becomes increasingly ineffective and gradually stops purifying the blood. Ultimately, this "dirty" blood interferes with proper methylation or the conversion of folate or folic acid. Whether you are normal weight or overweight, whether you feel healthy or unwell, a diagnosis of an MTHFR gene mutation means that your liver is showing signs of wear and tear and needs proper support and care.
Methylation is involved in the conversion and breakdown of important chemicals, compounds, and phytochemicals that are obtained from sources such as the food we eat, the clean water we drink, and the sunlight we absorb. The breakdown of chemicals into even smaller chemicals is a very extensive process, and an explanation of methylation given by a doctor or medical practitioner will not even begin to address the complexity of chemical breakdowns in the body. The vast amount of chemicals we have in our body is still a mystery to medical research and medical science. Medical science also believes that the liver is responsible for only four to five hundred chemical reactions that keep us alive and healthy, but in reality there are thousands of chemical processes that have yet to be discovered. Many of these unknown chemical reactions play a role in the methylation process in the body.
If you test positive for the MTHFR gene mutation and your doctor or specialist guesses that you have a methylation problem, they may be right. But the methylation problem is not related to a gene mutation, as one might assume. In fact, if you take the necessary steps to reverse your methylation problems, you will no longer test positive for the MTHFR gene mutation. Healing the liver and purifying the blood are two important parts of solving methylation problems. Lowering the viral load that creates toxic byproducts in the liver is another important step. You can learn more about this in the books "The Healing Medium" and "The Most Useful Foods" . You can also read more in our blog articles Epstein-Barr Virus (Part One) , Epstein-Barr Virus (Part Two) , Herpes Viruses and Heavy Metal Detox Smoothies . If the mutated gene was actually causing the problems, you could never change the results of the gene mutation test, but since it is caused by another problem, it is possible to heal yourself and reverse the test results.
If your MTHFR gene mutation test results are negative, you may still have methylation issues. Sometimes the test is able to identify inflammation, and other times it will not recognize inflammation even in an inflamed organism. Even the highest quality medical tests aren't always perfect, and it's important to consider all of your health symptoms when considering whether you need help with methylation.
The ileum, which lies immediately after the small intestine, contains "surface biotics" - that's the name Anthony William gave them after he first brought them to light for the general public. Superbiotics are powerful probiotics that can be obtained from eating some freshly picked organic foods. Fruit from an organic orchard or vegetables from your own organic garden are perfect examples. These fresh, unwashed products contain microorganisms that help your internal methylation process by producing bioavailable vitamin B12. Microorganisms enter the ileum and can support methylation in a powerful way. If you're looking for ways to support your body's methylation process, try picking organic vegetables from a friend's garden or looking for organic produce at your local farmers market.
Major viral infections
Viruses play a role in numerous diseases, including Lyme disease, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, eczema, chronic fatigue syndrome, and many others. You can learn more in the book The Healing Medium . In all of these health conditions, viruses enter the liver and release a toxic byproduct. As a result, it is likely that if you are diagnosed with Lyme disease or another chronic virus-related illness, also test positive for an MTHFR gene mutation. Again, it's important to remember that this does not mean you have a gene mutation. The methylation and homocysteine problems you may be experiencing are the result of a viral byproduct clogging up the liver and getting in the bloodstream Thinking you have a mutated gene will never help you heal from Lyme disease, multiple sclerosis, eczema, psoriasis, sarcoid, colitis or any other chronic disease, but knowing the truth can help you start to bounce back your health If you are concerned about methylation or detoxification problems, tell your doctor that you think you may have problems with low-level viruses in your liver that are causing symptoms and creating blood toxicity. By using the information you learn here and working with a qualified doctor, you may be able to completely reverse any viral health and methylation issues you are experiencing.
Misinformation hinders healing
Thinking you have a gene mutation when you don't can be extremely harmful and prevent you from truly healing. This harmful idea can take up residence in your subconscious mind and have a detrimental effect on your immune system. If you have been told that you have a gene mutation, it is important to realize that this is misleading, incorrect information. This awareness plays an important role in being able to truly begin to heal.
Steps to get started
If you have tested positive for the MTHFR gene mutation, know that you can begin to treat the health problems that caused this result. In the end, you may even be able to surprise your doctor by getting a second MTHFR gene mutation test that comes back negative! Reducing the viral load in the body, cleansing the liver, and purifying the blood are three important steps to take as you begin to heal and ignite the body's ability to methylate. Filling your diet with the right foods and adding high-quality nutritional supplements can play an important role in this process. It is very important to read "Help for the liver" .
Medicinal nutritional supplements and teas
Adopting an antivirus protocol can be a supportive first step. Taking a high-quality zinc sulfate supplement can be of great benefit. Your doctor or specialist may have already recommended taking a methylfolate supplement to help with methylation issues, but methylfolate only works if you also include a B12 supplement that contains adenosylcobalamin in your daily routine. Getting enough high-quality vitamin C is valuable because of its ability to detoxify the blood. L-Lysine is another great nutritional supplement that helps lower the viral load in the body. Other nutritional supplements that may be helpful for you include oregano, olive leaf , cat's claw , yarrow, and lemon balm capsules . Thyme tea, red clover flower tea, and nettle leaf tea can be incredibly healing.
Wild blueberries are an amazing liver cleanser and healer. Celery stalk juice is also phenomenal for this. A pint of lemon water twice daily can provide profound liver and methylation support. Try including sweet potatoes and winter squash in some of your meals. In addition to including supportive foods in your diet, it is important to eliminate foods that do not serve your body well during the healing process. Try to cut out dairy, eggs and wheat.
Reducing fat in your diet is an important step to take during liver treatment. When you reduce your fat intake, the liver doesn't have to make as much bile to break down food , and has more time and energy to rid the body of toxins that contribute to methylation problems and other symptoms. If you eat meat, try to reduce the amount of animal protein you consume. If you can limit your consumption of animal protein to once a day, for a period of time, ideally at dinner, your liver will probably be able to improve more quickly. It is best to use animal protein sources with a lower fat content, such as wild salmon or other wild fish. If your diet is plant-based, try to keep your diet low in fat, such as nuts and avocados, and include more fresh fruits and vegetables. Once you reduce your fat intake, the liver can cleanse, repair and help overcome methylation issues. Check out the recipes on our blog for some delicious, healthy and low-fat meal ideas. The five heavy metal detox foods are also very helpful for methylation issues.
How to move forward
We hope this article has helped you break free of the misinformation that may have been holding you back from healing. Although you do not have a genetic mutation, you may have conversion and methylation issues that can be resolved through dietary choices, proper supplementation, patience, and faith in your body's miraculous ability to heal itself.
