Advanced MethylDetox Profile & 60 Minute Virtual Consultation
The MethylDetox Profile gives more actionable information than MTHFR testing alone, giving you a more complete pictue of your body's methylation and detoxification. The MethylDetox profile recommends diet and nutritional supplementation based on your individual genetics. This test also tells you about your ability to methylate neurotransmitters, DNA, and toxins by not only testing MTHFR, but also MTR, MTRR, COMT, AHCY, and Homocysteine. The MTHFR gene produces an enzyme which is importatant in maintaining optimal health. If there is a mutation in the MTHFR gene, then folate metabolism is adversely affected. Certain diseases have been shown in research to be associated with improper folate metabolism. MTR is a gene that codes for an enzyme known as methionine synthase (MS). MS converts homocysteine to methionine usig methylated vitamin B12. Mutations in this gene significantly impact homocysteine metabolism which can increase risk of diseases like cardiovascuar diseases, metabolic diseases, neurological diseases, and certain cancers. MTRR codes for methionine synthase reductase (MSR). MSR is required for the proper function of methionine synthase. These genes act in concert to convert homocysteine to methionine. Mutations are implicated in certain cancers, Parkinson's disease, depression, hypertension, and many others. COMT is a major gene involved in methylation. It plays an importatnt role in a variety of disorders, including estrogen-induced cancers, Parkinson's disease, depression, hypertension and many others. COMT is also necessary for maintaining the proper balance of neurotransmitters with SAMe obtained from methionine. Genetic mutation in COMT can result in various neurological problems, and has also been associated with Autism. AHCY is the only enzyme known to convert S-Adenosylhomocysteine (AdoHcy) to homocystein. It is crucial that AHCCY immediately converts AdoHcy to homocystein and adeine in order to maintain optimal methylation potential. Studies show a link between mutations in this gene with poor methylation potential and severe myopathies, developmental delays and hypermethioninemia. Homocysteine is an amino acid that is involved in maintaining the methionine cycle. Elevated homocysteine levels are well known risk factors for chronic disease, particularly cardiovascular, diabetes, and neurodegenerative disorders. Anyone with Cardiovascular diseases (hypertension, coronary artery disease, stroke, etc.), Neurological Disorders (Depression, dementia, Alzheimers disease, ADD/ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, chronic fatigue syndrome, migraine, insomnia), Metabolic Conditions (metabolic syndrome, diabetes mellitus, kidney diseases, reduced abiity to metabolize medications, multiple chemical sensitivity), Musculoskeletal Disorders (osteoporosis), Eye diseases (macular degeneration), Cancer (colorectal, breast, and others) can benefit from this test. Price includes 60 minute consultation. This consultation includes a comprehensive health history, order for any additional labs and testing that you need, test interpretation, and comprehensive treatment plan. All medications, supplements, and additional testing are an extra fee.
