Julie Matthews, Author Nourishing Hope: Benefits range dramatically from child to child. Many parents report that their children make wonderful gains in language when starting a special diet, such as gluten-free casein-free – it may be an increase in words, speaking in sentences, or back and forth conversation. Some children make gains in behavior, a reduction in irritability or tantrums, or less hyperactivity. Other children have improvements in the quality of life, relief of digestive upset, fewer colds and infections, and are happier and healthier. While benefits differ, my experience as a Certified Nutrition Consultant specializing in autism for the past ... ..more

What is the Methionine Cycle ?

  4 years, 1 month ago

The Methionine Cycle is the major work tag (methyl donor) manufacturer. SAMe has over 400 functions in the community. Also serves as the main route through to liver & Waste cycle.

Methionine (SAM) Cycle AKA “SAM’s Corporation,” As SAMe has over 400 known methylation reactions, SAM’s Corporation is the chief work tag producer. It’s also where most of the action occurs since it contains the major thoroughfare to the liver (CBS & transsulfuration). While this often works to its’ advantage, it can also pose a safety risk since failure along this route may result in calamity (see Waste Facility ... ..more

MTHFR C677T Mutation: Basic Protocol by Dr Lynch on February 24, 2012 in C677T MTHFR Mutations
Have one or two copies of the MTHFR C677T mutation? Don’t know what to do?

After working with 100′s of individuals with this defect, I’ve developed a protocol which may help a significant number of people.
I want to make it absolutely clear that while the MTHFR C677T mutation may be common across a number of individuals, the outcome of supplementing with various nutrients can vary tremendously due to other genetic defects, dietary and lifestyle choices and environmental exposures.

What does this process look like when it’s broken? After reading the following, you will be able to envision the implications of defects or mutations. The following is an example of the health problems that might occur.
1. Poor nerve function leads to muscle twitching, numbness, and weakness yet misfires can cause seizures, fatigue, memory loss, word groping, clumsiness (with falls & injuries), and visual or hearing loss in those with MS, CFS/ME, or Autism Spectrum Disorders.

2. Depending on the neuro-talker, imbalances often lead to a variety of disorders including: depression, anxiety, panic attacks, irritability, mood swings, OCD ... ..more

#CBS #NOS Gene Mutation
• Flapping or hand tremors
• Dark circles under eyes
• Disorientation, and brain fog
• Hyperactive reflexes
• NMDA receptor activation, leading to glutamate excitotoxicity
• Tremor of the hands
• Paranoia, panic attacks
• Memory loss
• Headaches
• Irritability
• Hyperventilation (often associated with decreased Carbon dioxide/CO2)
• Central nervous system toxicity
• Dementia
• Seizures

How to reduce Ammonia levels:
The following examples assist in balancing this toxic waste
• Yucca with meals/protein snacks
• Charcoal flush (only 1-2 x week) after last meal of the day (typically 9-10PM)
• CBS/NOS Caps
• MTHFR A1298C Caps (L-Biopterrin increases BH4 levels and the milk thistle also provides ammonia ... ..more

What is Adrenal Fatigue ?

  4 years, 1 month ago

"Adrenal Fatigue" is a term that you hear a lot in the health community, but what is it exactly? In this article you'll learn the causes of adrenal fatigue, how it can impact how you feel, and what you can do about it!

Your adrenal glands sit on top of your kidneys and regulate many critical hormonal jobs in your body. One of those jobs is the secretion of your body's main stress hormone, cortisol. Our bodies have been designed for stressful events, and throughout time they have adapted to them. If our ancestors were chased by a ... ..more

1). #MTHFR #A1298C + #Liver & #BH4 support
Start at a few crumbs per day and very gradually, go up over several weeks’ time (generally 4-6 weeks). The goal is 1⁄2 to 1 capsule daily ($54.95/60 caps & $29.95/30 caps). This is whether you have the MTHFR A1298C defect or not.

2). Black Bear Spray or Get B12 Spray
Start at 1-2 sprays per day and very gradually work up to 3-5 sprays once or twice daily. A tip for adults who develop headaches with wine, it is very likely that you are sensitive to sulfites and the ... ..more

#MTHFR #Lithium
Lithium has been known for years to be useful for #bipolar disorder. Despite all that is known about lithium and its impact on biochemical pathways, no one has defined the mechanism by which lithium has its impact on bipolar disorder. It is likely to be an effect on multiple pathways. There are a number of enzymes in the body that are known to be impacted and inhibited by lithium.

Lithium comes together with methylation at #COMT, the enzyme catechol-o-methyl-transferase. COMT breaks down #dopamine and #norepinephrine. Dopamine is a critical #neurotransmitter for motivation, focus and attention, among other functions ... ..more

CBS C699T cystathionine beta synthase AKA The Hole in the Bucket. This Priority # 3 Mutation
Tip! It is crucial to address any gut issues before you thoroughly address the CBS defect. Since chronic gut issues lead to higher bacterial loads, thus leading to higher ammonia production as well as leaky gut (reducing nutrient absorption and increased risk for food sensitivity) this area is paramount. You can begin to address the CBS prior to fully addressing gut issues though they should be done in concert. Since the CBS is one of the most important issues to address, I’ve decided to ... ..more

1) Let's treat all this stuff now! By and large, #supplements are probably some of the safest treatments you will ever find, particularly when one considers the side effects associated with most prescription medicines. However, every single thing that you take has benefits and drawbacks. Simply stated, this means that supplements should be treated as medication. When you consider that many of the #methylation defects require any number of vitamins, enzymes, and co-factors to work more efficiently, these replacements have a crucial purpose. Since #methylation is instrumental in so many reactions, from proper #immune system function and making new ... ..more
