Have you been told by a provider that you need folate only to try it and feel worse? Recently, I received a call from a woman in tears. Two months ago, a functional medicine doctor told her she needed methyl folate because she was homozygous for MTHFR. At first she felt a little better. Her anxiety lessened and her mood lifted. But after two months, her mood tanked, she couldn’t sleep, and she had high amounts of anxiety. She wanted to know if 5 mg of methyl-folate was too much.
Learn Why You May Be Taking the Wrong Vitamins
The problem isn't the form of folate, or the amount. The truth is that supplementing with folate isn't good for everyone. I often get asked questions about this. Should I take methylated folate? Or folinic acid? Does it matter? What if I have MTHFR?
Wonder no more! I am offering my over 20 years of experience treating mental health cases in a new e-course! The focus is on methylation, anxiety, depression, and what vitamins might be useful for a person.
In this course you will learn:
- When folate is appropriate
- Why folate isn't needed by everyone
- How to lower homocysteine without folate
- Why MTHFR isn't the best test for methylation status
- Other causes of anxiety and depression besides folate deficiency
For a limited time, the course is offered at a discounted rate. More importantly, you can help design the topics. Is there something particular you want to understand about vitamins and mental health?
