Some of the best advice I ever received was from Dr. Carol Savage, who moderates the MTHFR Gene Mutation group on Facebook. She is, quite simply, an angel to so many people who are struggling to understand the complicated topics of epigenetics and individual biochemistry.
At the time, I had just started to supplement with methylfolate, B-12 and a variety of other co-factors. I knew I was on the right track, but some days I felt worse than when I started. I explained my situation to Dr. Savage and she suggested that I may feel better if I didn’t take all my supplements everyday. This was a real shocker to me! I had never even considered it. However, it made sense. Because the new supplements were jump-starting my dormant methylation cycle, things were starting to shift in my body. I was now releasing more toxins and perhaps my liver and kidneys were becoming overloaded.
The next day, I split my supplements into alternating days and immediately noticed a big change in how I felt. It turned out that I was simply rushing the process a bit too much and needed to take it a little slower. Go figure!
