Redefining Health'Care'

The most common question I am asked about MTHFR is:

What Supplement Should I take If I have MTHFR?

To answer that requires digging a lot deeper than MTHFR and delving into things such as our neurotransmitter pathways.  The thing with MTHFR is it is one gene and just one 'spoke on the wheel' of the methylation cycle.  The other thing is there are other processes which are connected to the methylation cycle which provide signals that pertain to whether to speed up or slow down the methylation cycle. So if we start speeding things up when pathways which are downstream are already backed up we can get into a pretty messy situation!  Much like trying to use a toilet that is clogged!  

During this video we will review these pathways and look at the ramifications of supplementing without looking at the bigger picture.

Salena Rothenberger, D.PSc, CFMP, CHC

Functional Health Mentor, Wellness Advocate and Founder of The Functional Perspective

Too often, people think of “wellness” as something temporary, or worse, unobtainable. Their work with doctors ends up taking short-term steps to improve their life… and “wellness”… but often fall back to their less healthy routines once they are left to fend for themselves and rely on symptom management protocols designed for the masses.  After seeing this happen with her own son, Salena wanted to provide an opportunity which not only helped others to improve their gastrointestinal health, autoimmune disease, and overall wellness, but also give them the tools to continue their progress “infinitely”, long after they completed their program.
