Why Methylation is so important

Methylation is a chemical process that happens in ALL cells of the body billions of times per second. Think of it as billions of switches being turned on (turning all the lights on in the body) or conversely not having the ability to turn those lights on and your (cells are sitting in the dark).

Do you experience chronic fatigue, chronic infections, sleep issues? Do you have or know someone with Lyme disease? What about do you experience seizures, mood disorders, anxiety, depression? Maybe you have a family member or relative with autism, cancer or Alzheimers? If this sounds familiar you may have a methylation defect.

Methylation is the missing piece to heal chronic symptoms

Methylation is responsible for:

Detoxifying environmental toxins

Detoxifying oestrogen (COMT) enzyme

Creating melatonin for sleep

Creating bile acids for metabolism of fats

Energy production

Repairing damaged DNA

Balanced brain chemistry

Controlling Stress (Fight or Flight Response)

Creating a healthy immune system

Managing glutathione the body's powerful antioxidant

Controlling gene function

Manage inflammation

Methylation is absolutely essential for a properly functioning body and brain.

Poor methylation can show up as:

  • skin problems

  • insomnia

  • allergies

  • digestive issues

  • thyroid issues

  • fatigue

  • lack of energy

  • brain fog

  • cardiovascular issues

  • frequent infections, parasitic, bacterial, viral, candida, urinary tract

  • mold illness

  • hormonal

  • infertility/miscarriages

There is a way to address methylation defects and change the way the genes function. It is does through addressing the nutrient deficiencies that are causing the problem. It's very individualized and very important.

There are several steps that you can take now to assist your body with methylation.

  1. Stop alcohol, it depletes b vitamins that are essential for methylation

  2. Eat adequate animal protein as it is essential for proper b12 synthesis of methylation pathways.

  3. Reduce toxin exposure, that means detox your home cleaning products, your beauty products, what your cookware is, what you use in your yard and go simple and clean.

  4. Eat a clean non processed diet.

  5. Get lots of greens 1 cup a day

  6. Support digestion and fat digestion We are here to support you in feeling your best and we do this through functional blood work and genetic methylation testing. Reach out to us to get going into wellness!
