15 episodes

This podcast breaks up BIG health topics, like MTHFR, into small, easy bites that add up to in-depth knowledge. All in ten minutes or less.
In season one we'll talk about why folic acid can be toxic, how the MTHFR enzyme is in bed with estrogen (scandalous!), why it matters to be able to turn some genes off, and why high-folate foods make some people feel depressed, and so much more
Call in with your questions and I'll answer them on the air.

    MTHFR and Glutathione

    MTHFR and Glutathione

    Glutathione is called the "master antioxidant," which sounds important, so obviously the MTHFR polymorphism is going to mess it up. In this episode we'll talk about:


    Why glutathione is the antioxidant of antioxidants.
    What diseases are associated with low glutathione (more than half of which are also associated with MTHFR. Guess why!)
    How to boost your glutathione naturally and effectively
    What foods help increase glutathione
    When it is most important to think about glutathione supplements.

    It's Not All About Folate and Amy's MTHFR Journey

    It's Not All About Folate and Amy's MTHFR Journey

    Even though we talk about folate *constantly* and don't seem to talk about any other vitamins, it isn't just about the folate. In this episode, we'll talk about:


    What entire group of vitamins works together to make methylation and cellular energy happen
    What other B vitamin is absolutely necessary for MTHFR to function - it might even be more important than folate!
    Amy's MTHFR story and why she's so absurdly passionate about this whole topic.

    Methylfolate, or a High-Folate Diet Makes Me Feel BAD.

    Methylfolate, or a High-Folate Diet Makes Me Feel BAD.

    What we have here, is an MTHFR situation. In this episode we'll talk about:


    The three scenarios when taking the right kind of folate feels yucky
    What that might mean about you
    How to fix it

    Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezie (as my 5-year-old says it.)

    Here are the full show notes with links to more information.

    Keep your eyes peeled for MTHFR courses - we're starting out with a Help! I've Just Been Told I Have MTHFR And I Don't Get It quickie class.

    What to Eat for MTHFR Mutants. More Importantly, What NOT to Eat.

    What to Eat for MTHFR Mutants. More Importantly, What NOT to Eat.

    We've talked about the difference between natural folate and synthetic folic acid, but what does that mean in terms of eating for your MTHFR mutation? LOTS of things... Tune in to learn:


    The two foods that you absolutely should never eat, ever.
    The ten foods highest in natural folate that you can add to your diet today.
    Easy substitutions for foods that are fortified with folic acid.
    The big payoff to changing your diet.
    The two situations where a high-natural-folate diet might not be right for you (or, might be downright wrong).

    Also - take a look at the show notes here for an MTHFR breakfast that will give you 77.5% of your daily folate needs. Easy.

    Psst... There are Different Types of Folate. Which is Best For You?

    Psst... There are Different Types of Folate. Which is Best For You?

    The term "folate" is incredibly confusing because for whatever reason, the term is used interchangeably with "folic acid," which is an entirely different thing.

    This week let's talk about folate, folic acid, folinic acid, and 5-LMTHF and also, which is best to take if you happen to be an MTHFR mutant because really, who actually knows what the eff folinic acid is? We'll talk about:


    Which type builds up toxic unmetabolized products in the blood
    Which type is found naturally in foods like lentils and dark green leafy veggies
    Which type feeds most directly into cellular energy
    Which type feeds into neurotransmitter production
    Which type entirely bypasses the MTHFR enzyme.

    Also - great news about an MTHFR community, coming soon. See the full show notes here!

    This Vitamin Could Be Hurting You. Not Just For MTHFR!

    This Vitamin Could Be Hurting You. Not Just For MTHFR!

    There is a vitamin that is helpful in normal doses, but toxic in high doses. It is added to your food, energy drinks, and of course, your multivitamin. It's folic acid - and it's not just a problem for MTHFR mutants. In this episode you'll learn:


    How folic acid is linked to cancer promotion
    The strange, double-edged relationship between folic acid and cognitive decline in the elderly
    What happens when too much folic acid stays in your bloodstream
    How MTHFR mutations amplify the problems
