1. I decided to make an appointment with MTHFR support Australia (Kate Troup) as a result of discovering I was homozygous for C677T after two very distressing and painful miscarriages. My GP did not have much experience managing patients with this genotype and although my reproductive immunologist has treated many women like me, I wasn’t confident that the intricacies of the issue were being dealt with after watching your very informative webinar. I sought local naturopaths but none of them had even heard of MTHFR, and after starting myself on prenatal vitamins including methylfolate and experiencing some side effects, decided it was better to trust to expert help to give future pregnancies and children the best possible chance at a healthy existence. I didn’t want to go through another miscarriage!
2. Although my motivations for seeking help were primarily related to miscarriage prevention, prior to conceiving and throughout this pregnancy there have been so many other benefits I’ve experienced as a result of the help I have received. Not only have I sustained a pregnancy to term (along with help from a reproductive immunologist), but prior to this I experienced a massive improvement in the severe period pains I was suffering, I have had significant improvements in IBS symptoms, my emotional health, sleep and general wellbeing. I also feel more confident armed with this knowledge about my body as an individual, and have gained understanding as to how I can best raise children, giving them the best chance of health too and hopefully preventing in them some of the chronic conditions I have suffered.
3. I would recommend that anyone diagnosed with MTHFR mutations, with a history of chronic illnesses of any type, depression/anxiety or behavioural problems (ADHD/autism), recurrent pregnancy loss or difficulty conceiving seek help through MTHFR support Australia. Being a scientist, I was initially a little hesitant to be stepping out into the realm of complementary medicine, but the basis of the treatment I have received couldn’t be any more scientific and the knowledge and experience you are drawing on really does translate into clinical benefits.
4. Consultation with this clinic is personalised like no other – there is no one size fits all approach as every decision is based on genetic susceptibilities in different biochemical pathways and how that is expressing/manifesting clinically in the individual. I would thoroughly recommend seeking professional help with MTHFR support Australia, as an investment in your own health, and the health of your unborn/future children and family as a whole.
