Category Archives: MTHFR
The full name of the MTHFR gene is “methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase” The protein encoded by this gene is an enzyme that catalyzes the reduction of methylenetetrahydrofolate to methyltetrahydrofolate, This enzyme is essential for the homeostasis and normal metabolism of intracellular folate.
In humans, MTHFR is located on the chromosome 1. It is expressed in various tissues including the brain, muscle, liver, and stomach. MTHFR gene mutation can cause methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase deficiency. Genetic variations in this gene have been related to many diseases including colon cancer, leukemia, vascular disease, depression, schizophrenia, migraine with aura, glaucoma, Down syndrome, and neural tube defects. homocystinuria, an inherited disorder with the abnormal metabolism of the amino acid methionine. The symptoms of homocystinuria include delayed development, visual problems, long limbs, and psychiatric disorders.
MTHFR causes a multitude of disease conditions. You have to treat the disease condition, rather than the Gene mutation. It may sound like the treatment is back to front this way, however it is the only way you can reach this mutation: It essentially the treatment and reversal of the disease condition that metastasized from this one Gene mutation.
Use the Rife Digital Ultimate in this circumstance and set the frequency to the applicable disease set. Some exceptions to this rule would be Down Syndrome as a result of MTHFR.
