Founder of MTHFR Support Australia and Naturopath
Carolyn Ledowsky is the founder of MTHFR Support Australia. She is a naturopath, herbalist and nutritionist who has a Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy) Honours, Bachelor of Herbal Medicine, Bachelor of Naturopathy, Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy and Diploma of Nutrition, also having studied courses in genetics at Duke University and The University of Maryland in the US.
Carolyn is a Health Scientist and researcher who is passionate about the rising rate of infertility around the word. Her recent Journal publication highlights the potential effects that MTHFR polymorphisms may have on fertility in both men and women. She has just completed her Honours thesis where she documented the forms and doses of folate that practitioners in Australia are prescribing for women with infertility and MTHFR polymorphisms. This is in the process of being published. The results suggest that 5-MTHF is being used over folic acid and at higher doses to achieve a successful pregnancy and live birth. Carolyn plans to continue her research with a clinic trial. She is currently doing her PhD at the University of Technology Sydney to study the effect of different forms of folate on fertility in those with MTHFR polymorphisms.
Carolyn is a results-oriented health expert who has the ability to provide straightforward and practical advice to address your specific health issues, working with you through the entire course of your healing. Carolyn’s key focus is looking at how your genes impact your health and make you more susceptible to disease. This insight and a thorough health history is invaluable in setting a correct path for your future health.
Due to expanding commitments, Carolyn is no longer taking on new patients - however she continues to serve her existing clientele, ensuring she remains at the frontline of clinical practice. She works closely with the practitioners in the clinic in refining supplement dosages and regimes to improve patient outcomes.
Carolyn is a regular speaker at Industry conferences, on podcasts and Summits and provides both patient and practitioner training through her many webinars/presentations and on-line learning environments.
