What the MTHFR? How you metabolize B-Vitamins may impact more than your energy.

Part 1: What is MTHFR and what does it do?

Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase Gene Mutation–that’s a mouth full! Genetics determine more than the color of your eyes. As we learned in the previous series, genetics can affect your health in a number of ways. The MTHFR gene mutation (a fairly common genetic variant) can be a factor in a myriad of medical conditions. Through genetic testing, more than 40 variants of the gene that encodes the MTHFR enzyme have been identified.

What is MTHFR and what does it do?

MTHFR is an enzyme encoded by the MTHFR gene. The enzyme adds a methyl group to folic acid, making it usable by the body. A mutation of the MTHFR gene may be linked to serious health conditions, such as birth defects, neurological disorders, and some cancers.

It is estimated that 50 percent of the population has some type of MTHFR mutation. Some of MTHFR mutations are more serious than others.

What is methylation and why does it matter?

Methylation is a basic biochemical process in which the methyl group is transferred to a molecule—and it occurs billions of times per second in the cells. Nearly every reaction and function of every body system involves the process of methylation.

Here are some examples of systems and functions affected by the methlation process:

  • Gene regulation — Turning genes on and off. Think of this as taping a light switch on or off. Doing so keeps the switch in place, but if the tape wears off, then the switch can move, meaning the gene can then be turned on. For example: cancer genes.
  • Detoxification — Ridding the body of toxins like chemicals and heavy metals.
  • Nerve function — Nerves in the body send signals to the brain for movement and sensations, such as pain.
  • Immune system — Development of immune modulating cells like T cells and NK cells
  • Energy production — Metabolism (burning fat for energy), and cellular energy production
  • Hormone regulation — Processing and detoxifying hormones like estrogen
  • Cognitive and emotional health — Building the neurotransmitters that affect mood
  • DNA and RNA synthesis — A chemical reaction between molecules in which bonds are formed.

For proper and efficient methylation, there must be methyl groups available to transfer, and is dependent on B vitamin status (B9, B12, B6 and B2). As described, the MTHFR enzyme is the controlling enzyme in the production of methyl groups. If a MTHFR gene mutation exists, there will be decreased production of methyl groups resulting in impaired methylation.

Healthy Lifestyle tips from Kaelyn Pehrson, Certified Health Coach

Daily Morning  with Kaelyn Pehrson, Certified Health Coach

Rise and shine! How you start each morning can set the tone for the rest of the day. My recommendation, start each beautiful day with fresh lemons! By simply juicing a half of an organic lemon into a glass of water, you will discover a simple, yet powerful way to start your day and improve your health. Sound too good to be true?

Those happy yellow citrus fruits are chock-full of health benefits, including high concentration of vitamins B {energy vitamins} and C {immune building}, antioxidants and potassium. What does all that mean for you?

 

* Flushes your system – 

Lemon water aids the bowel in eliminating waste more efficiently, and is a wonderful stimulant to the liver to aid in detoxification.

 

* Balances PH –

Lemon may be thought of as an acidic food, but in the body lemon juice creates an alkaline-forming environment to balance the body’s pH, as well as restore balance by providing vitamin C and high levels of potassium.

 

*Improves Skin –

Lemon juice clears the skin, reduces acne, softens wrinkles, and cleanses excess oils. The vitamin C, citric acid and alkaline properties fight bacteria both internally and on the skin.

 

*Aids in Weight Loss – 

Lemons are high in pectin fiber which help fight hunger cravings. Lemon juice also acts as a natural diuretic and aids digestion.

 

*Immune Building – 

Lemons are high in Vitamin C and potassium. Vitamin C is great for fighting colds and potassium stimulates brain & nerve function.

 

Give it a try. Improving your health does not get any more simple than this! Be sure to juice lemon into warm  or room temperature water, as hot water will destroy the live enzymes.

 

Get Even Healthier!

Tuesday, July 14th
6:30PM – 8:00PM

Attendees will receive recipes, the How-To’s for a Gluten-Free/FODMAP living protocol, a set of the BeFree! Life Affirming Cards and a Self-Test

Join Jenny Bair as she shares “What the FODMAP?!”

No, it’s not something the young kids are saying; it’s a diet that many try when they have gone Gluten Free but still are not feeling stellar.

If you live with typical IBS symptoms, want to eat low in sugar (fructose), eat low/lactose free, lower in yeast, then this diet may be for you!

Betty Murray of Living Well has shared the science behind the diet but Jenny Bair, MHE, of Living Well Dallas is going to help you logistically get your head around it and spell out the how-to’s for the everyday living.

She’ll share her top ten list of products that she uses as go-to’s, she’ll give you a summer meal and some snack recipes to take home with you, and just give you hope for feeling better and better each day.

Jenny is an expert in how to make lasting changes in your life and she loves navigating the unseen space in between your ears to figure out how to “Work with yourself and not against yourself.”

So, get yourself and your friends to this class. You’ll leave with a refreshed sense of enthusiasm of why you make all of the efforts to live the way you do with wonderful pay-off’s.

You’ll also get to  taste test sample some of the snackie type recipes in her new “What the FODMAP?” cookbook and she will keep you entertained as she is known for her honesty, interaction and  “life stand-up comedy” rolled into her speaking and teaching.

EMOTIONAL/ENERGY WORK
Emotion Code was developed by Dr. Bradley Nelson in the early 1990’s to assist clients in removing trapped emotions from their bodies decreasing pain while bringing peace and contentment to clients.   This technique uses muscle testing to find the trapped emotion and magnets to remove the those emotions.  Once these trapped emotions are removed, the individual can find a relief from living on the emotional edge with a new contentment with their lives and the world. 
Chakra Balancing- Chakras are major centers of spiritual power in the body.  They are little circles of energy that assist in running our body, mind & soul.  If they are not in sync, our physical health, mental clarity, and emotional stability can suffer.  T There are many different ways to balance the chakras, and remove the imbalance so the energy can flow freely again.
Emotional Freedom Technique – The Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT, is the psychological acupressure technique I routinely use in my practice and most highly recommend to optimize your emotional health. Although it is still often overlooked, emotional health is absolutely essential to your physical health and healing – no matter how devoted you are to the proper diet and lifestyle, you will not achieve your body’s ideal healing and preventative powers if you have emotional barriers.
