If you have a MTHFR genetic snp then you should  consider what products you use on your body and around the home.

Having one copy of the gene C677T, means you are about 60-70% more likely to experience a loss of function which will make you more susceptible to environmental toxins. This means your body is not able to deal with and excrete toxins like those that may not have any snp.

While I mention this one particular gene but this one is part of the folate cycle which donates to the methionine cycle and provides the materials your detox pathways need. There can be other genes in play as well, but this one in particular is more well known and I often get clients telling me that they have the MTHFR gene.

The conditions you may experience with this gene variation can be varied but do include some of the following:

  • Infertility issues
  • Multiple Chemical Sensitivities
  • Mood disorders 
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Estrogen metabolism
  • Allergies
