Hello, I’m delighted to welcome you to the To Health With That! podcast where we’ll break one BIG health topic, like hypertension, type II diabetes, or this season’t choice – MTHFR mutation, into small bite-sized pieces of ten minutes or less. I’m your host, Naturopathic Doctor Amy Neuzil.
This podcast breaks up BIG health topics, like MTHFR, into small, easy bites that add up to in-depth knowledge. All in ten minutes or less.
We’ll talk about why folic acid can be toxic, how the MTHFR enzyme is in bed with estrogen (scandalous!), why it matters to be able to turn some genes off, and why high-folate foods make some people feel depressed, and so much more

Iron deficiency anemia can be a significant problem when you’re trying to conceive or going into a pregnancy, but even without overt iron deficiency anemia, your iron levels can still have an effect. We’ll discuss:
- Why it’s important to test both red blood cell iron levels and also ferritin, the storage form of iron.
- What iron deficiency anemia feels like, normally and in pregnancy.
- The possible complications of anemia in pregnancy, childbirth, for the neonate and even for the child of an anemic mother beyond the neonatal period.
- The relationship between men’s iron levels and men’s fertility especially with sperm parameters.
- Iron infusions and why we love them.
Iron levels are an important factor in preconception and pregnancy and while every doctor will test basic red blood cell levels, you may have to advocate for yourself to get your ferritin tested.

In Season One, we’ll focus on the MTHFR mutation– a topic that is near and dear to my heart. But you, dear listeners, will choose the topics for Season Two and beyond. If you know you have questions about the MTHFR mutation and want me to answer them in the podcast and also play your lovely voices on the air, then go here and click the +MESSAGE button under the logo. Or, you can email me at thwtpodcast at gmail.com (I’m writing it like that so that I don’t get approximately one million spam emails every 24 hours.) The first episode will air on June 21, just in time for father’s day. Not that it’s so father’s day relevant.
It’s Sabrina here. I’m Sabrina. I’m talking for the Coronavarirus, but I’m not sure if you can go out. It’s not safe to go out without a mask because if you make one that’s okay and if you buy one that’s okay. But, if you don’t have one and you can’t buy one and you can’t make one, that’s not good–you can’t go to the store. Bye! I’m Sabrina.
MTHFR is a common genetic mutation that can contribute to anxiety, depression, fatigue, chronic pain, infertility, and more serious conditions like breast implant illness, heart attack, stroke, chronic fatigue syndrome, and some types of cancer. If you know or suspect you have an MTHFR variant, schedule a free 15-minute meet-and-greet appointment with MTHFR expert Dr. Amy today.Book Your Appointment
So cute. Two little chipmunks collaborating.
Right?!? And BOTH of them like to chatter… 🙂
Good luck, Amy!
