The Blossom Clinic in Warrandyte, Melbourne is proud to offer MTHFR testing. MTHFR stands for methylene-tetrahydrofolate reductase: an enzyme that occurs in your body and is necessary to convert the folate you eat into an active form (5-Methyltetrahydrofolate) that your body needs. Unfortunately, some individuals have mutated genes that may adversely affect their ability to convert folate, which may have a long-term negative impact on health if left untreated. A mutated MTHFR gene is not necessarily dangerous, but in many cases, the condition does negatively impact on an individual’s health.

Unlike folic acid, folate is a natural vitamin (B9) that is required for:

  • Correct cellular function
  • Amino acid metabolism
  • Detoxification of homocysteine from the blood
  • Platelet production and the formation and maturation of red and white blood cells

If you are unable to convert folate, your body cannot absorb the nutrients and supplements you consume. This means that a MTHFR gene cannot be treated by supplementation alone. Environmental factors can also impact on your ability to convert folate. These include:

  • Cellular damage from mobile phones, environmental pollutants, industrial wastes, pesticides, and cosmetics
  • Genetically modified foods
  • Stress
  • Ageing

Research suggests that while one in every two people has a mutated MTHFR gene, some do not develop medical problems. Our experienced naturopath will test for MTHFR and, if you are a mutated gene carrier and suffering from the condition, offer solutions that will help you convert folate more efficiently.

Reducing stress, modifying your diet to include folate-rich foods like broccoli, asparagus and lentils, and cutting down exposure to environmental pollutants are natural ways that you can help your body cope with modern life, but making lifestyle changes may not be enough if you have the MTHFR gene.

There are many conditions connected to the inability to convert MTHFR including addiction, ADHD/ ADD, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines and mental disorders. If you believe you may be a sufferer, it is important to have the appropriate tests and analysis performed by a professional naturopath to make sure you receive the proper treatment.
