MTHFR C677T Mutation: Basic Protocol
General Side Effects
If you are feeling improvement consistently, then you are on the right track.
If you begin to feel heavy, tired, dry mouth, irritable, ‘toxic’, or otherwise ‘not right’, then something in your protocol needs to change.
These are all signs that one must listen to otherwise you are potentially increasing the circulation of toxins and not eliminating them properly.
These side effects can be eliminated quite quickly through a pure vegetable and fruit juice diet for at least one day. This means producing your own juices at home via a quality juicer such as Champion Juicers. Prepare mostly vegetable juices with some fruit juices to increase the taste.
Taking a capsule of Neutralize or some Niacin also helps offset many side effects.
What is MTHFR?
What Is MTHFR?MTHFR is a critical enzyme in the body.
It’s required for a metabolic process that repairs DNA, switches genes on and off, and numerous other important functions (1).
MTHFR is also essential to convert folate and folic acid – each a form of Vitamin B9 – into the biologically active form called L-methylfolate (or 5-MTHF).
Not to be confused with the enzyme, the MTHFR gene provides the instructions for making that MTHFR enzyme. In other words, it “triggers” production of the enzyme.
A mutation in the MTHFR gene may therefore affect enzyme function.
