#Epinephrine is one of the “Fight or Flight” #Hormones This NT is derived from #norepinephrine & released by the #adrenals. Hence, it is also known as #adrenaline . Epinephrine is also essential in #metabolism and regulates attention and mental focus & clarity as well as arousal (alertness & waking up), and thinking. It also inhibits #insulin release and raises the amount of fatty acids in the blood; both of which you’ll require for fuel. This very neurotransmitter induced anxiety and heart racing the moment you heard the word “ #Methyltetrahydrofolate ” or “ #methylation .” Epinephrine also raises your #bloodpressure and speeds up your heart rate.
High levels have been linked to sleep problems, #anxiety and #ADD or #ADHD. Low levels can result in #fatigue , lack of focus, and difficulty losing weight. ..more

Research seems to ignore it almost completely while the C677T MTHFR mutation gets all the attention and glory.

Symptoms exist and doctors are saying there is no correlation between the MTHFR A1298C mutation and your symptoms – right?
I’d like to prove them wrong – at least for the symptoms which do correlate with the A1298C MTHFR mutation.
The MTHFR A1298C mutation may affect you if you are either:
--Homozygous A1298C MTHFR mutation
--Compound heterozgous A1298C + C677T ... ..more
Understanding #chronic #fatigue Syndrome #CFS
I left the Mayo Clinic in 2007 a little relieved, a little angry and very poor. Now, I know exactly why I was angry after watching the series of videos below (more about that later). Unfortunately, my anger at being diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue prevented me from doing my own research – I was fed up and I just retreated to my cave for five years to try to heal with diet and lifestyle improvements. That was a big mistake because it appears that a number of researchers have figured out chronic fatigue. If you’ve ... ..more
