Toxins are real. And unfortunately, they are everywhere.
Do you remember that time I ate fish for two weeks straight and started to lose my memory?
Yeah, you won’t believe the toxin that was to blame there.
Even organic foods still have toxic metals like cadmium in them.
Mold exposure is an issue that I saw time and time again when I was seeing clients. Add stress or anxiety to the equation and suddenly mold-induced inflammation can be increased by ten fold.
When your MTHFR gene isn’t working correctly, it creates a vicious cycle.
Your body can’t break down folic acid or eliminate heavy metals so folic acid levels build up.
That can lead to high homocysteine levels and poor methylation.
End result: your body doesn’t detox well.
And the symptoms? The list could go on nearly forever but some major ones include:
- Chronic pain
- Brain fog
- Cardiovascular issues
No, you can’t escape toxins.
But, you can help your body handle them better…even if you have a MTHFR gene mutation.
First, check your genes to find out if you have the “bad” MTHFR variants. It’s pretty easy to figure it out once you have your DNA tested. SelfDecode has a dedicated MTHFR report that will give you your results.
Then, you just need to implement the personalized plan based on your specific genetic results.
For me, supplementing with a vitamin B complex with mixed folate forms is extremely beneficial for improving my MTHFR function and detoxing better.
However, there might be different supplements, diets or lifestyle changes that would work better for your DNA.
The key is taking an inside out approach to your health. You can’t always change what’s happening in the world around you, but you can make targeted health changes based on your genes so that your body reacts differently when exposed to environmental toxins.
