  • S2E9: MTHFR Questions
    I love it when listeners leave me questions so here is this month’s roundup! I don’t have a doctor that advises me about MTHFR. A mental health provider suspected the mutation because of years of resistant depression. She did a swab to test genetics for specific medication absorption which included MTHFR testing.we found that I … Continue reading S2E9: MTHFR Questions
  • S2E8: The Preliminaries with MTHFR
    This week you’re continuing to symptom track and continuing to have patience because right now you are laying the foundation for a good methylfolate start. This phase, what I like to call the preliminaries, is all about priming your system for the giant load of methylated goodness that is going to come in and without … Continue reading S2E8: The Preliminaries with MTHFR
  • S2E7: B12 and MTHFR
    If you’re following along with what we’re doing, last week you added in B vitamins as a group. Typically this goes well for MTHFR folks because other B vitamins help the methylation pathway to turn, but don’t push it too quickly with methyl groups. There is one exception to this, and that is vitamin B … Continue reading S2E7: B12 and MTHFR

This … Continue reading S2E6: B Vitamins with MTHFR
  • S2E5: Patience with MTHFR
    I’m pretty sure that this is the most frustrating part of the whole MTHFR shebang. Not the crazy symptoms, the issues if we take too much methylfolate, the dietary changes, or the problems we have from MTHFR in the first place, but the tooth-grindingly frustrating requirement for patience. I am not a patient person. My … Continue reading S2E5: Patience with MTHFR
  • S2E4: Adding Food Sources of Folate
    Food sources of folate (natural folate, not foods enriched with folic acid) are some of the best foods out there, so with MTHFR we truly are blessed that our healthy foods are also some of the foods that taste the best. Also, high folate foods are heavily represented in Tex-Mex, so there’s another reason to … Continue reading S2E4: Adding Food Sources of Folate

  1. Hi Dr.Amy!

    I’m so grateful I came across your podcast. I’ve only listened to about 8 so far… you’re right, it’s a lot of information in a little bit! I have so many questions but for know I will just ask two…
    1) Typically how long before you may notice results from taking b vitamins? (Like the B minus from Seeking Health)
    2) Is it safe to take daily SAMe or should you pulse it?
    Looking forward to hearing back!

    1. Hi Holly,
      I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying the podcast – that is great news!
      In terms of “results” – it depends on what you’re looking for. Usually, people notice mood or energy level changes first, and those are very dose-dependent. I try to encourage people to give a dose at least 2 weeks (and more if you’re very sensitive) to see how your body responds before you think of increasing or changing. If you’ve been taking the B minus with no negative effects for 2 weeks and you aren’t seeing too much of a change, you could think about adding in a separate 5-LMTHF at a very low dose and seeing how you respond (or if you know you don’t tolerate 5-LMTHF, then maybe an additional folinic acid or a workaround like the SAMe.)

      SAMe is safe to take daily and works best on an empty stomach (30 minutes before a meal or 2 hours after).
      I hope this is helpful and I hope you’ll consider joining the Genetic Rockstars community – click the link to find out more.
