Good Article for Newbies
Reviewed in the United States on January 19, 2014
I ran across this following a visit with a functional physician to discuss lab test results. This booklet is basically an introduction to MTHFR and explains who should be tested. It also gives a basic list of lifestyle tips which are probably useful for anyone with any chronic health challenge. These can be summarized as eat healthy natural foods including salad greens (daily!), drink filtered water, eschew folic acid supplements but take folinic acid or methylfolate instead, avoid gluten and dairy, breathe properly and get fun exercis, laugh, enjoy nature, enjoy your family and friends, and seek out a good medical team.
He also encourages going barefoot outdoors, which strikes me as impractical since temperatures are below freezing right now!
I am intrigued by the connection between hypothyroid and MTHFR and will go to Dr. Lynch's website to read more. He advises giving up gluten but I did that decades ago. Some of what he says agrees with things my doctor told me, and I am grateful for the explanations in this article.
Some reviewers seem upset that they had to pay 99 cents for what is basically just an article, not a book. But to me it's 99 cents well spent. I would have given this five stars if it were just a little longer, perhaps extended to include a glossary.
