To Health With That! MTHFR Mutations.

By Amy Neuzil

This podcast breaks up BIG health topics, like MTHFR, into small, easy bites. 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, why you want to turn genes off, and how folate and depression are linked. Season 3 features Dr. Kate Naumes, women's health expert, to deep dive into hormones and infertility.

S2E38: Is Low Histamine Actually a Problem?

To Health With That! MTHFR Mutations.Jun 05, 2022

Fatigue First Step - Rule Out The Basics

Fatigue First Step - Rule Out The Basics

The first step to tackling your fatigue and getting your energy back, is finding out if there is something underneath, causing the fatigue, that you can fix quickly.

Some of these simple fixes might need some bloodwork from your doctor, and some will require you to do detective work on your own. The very simple fact is that you can't fix it unless you can find it, so here are the basic steps you can go through.

We will talk about iron deficiency, ferritin, thyroid, sleep apnea, carbon monoxide poisoning, MTHFR, blood sugar fluctuations, and more.

Drumroll please... Season 4 Topic Announcement.

Drumroll please... Season 4 Topic Announcement.

I have enjoyed this season so much - the interweaving of MTHFR and fertility and the ever-interesting conversation about women's health and hormones. Huge thanks to Dr. Kate Naumes, who made the season so much fun.

Without further ado, it is time for the season 4 topic announcement - because this is the #1 symptom that people with MTHFR (and people without it) complain about. This topic is tied up in everything from basic metabolism to hormones, from neurotransmitters to methylation, and from cellular energy to viral load.

Have you guessed it? Next season's topic will be: Fatigue, Chronic Fatigue, and Your Genes.

We'll keep MTHFR and other gene SNPs the whole way through while we uncover all the different facets of fatigue. As always there will be so many things you can start doing today to help your body have more energy and keep the fatigue at bay. We'll discuss:

Everything that goes into your resting energy level

Why fatigue is so damn common

What MTHFR (and COMT, and MTRR, and many more gene SNPs) have to do with it

What is really happening when fatigue becomes chronic

How toxins and toxic burden play into it

Boosting cellular energy

And so much more. Enough to fill a whole season.

I can't wait to get started. The the first episode will air the Sunday after Labour Day (that's September 10th, 2023.)

Subclinical hypothyroid and Fertility

Subclinical hypothyroid and Fertility

Overtly low or overtly high thyroid levels are a well known risk factor for infertility, but today we're going to talk about something a little bit less well known, which is subclinical hypothyroid and fertility. Subclinical hypothyroid is when the thyroid tests are on the lower end of normal, but still within normal limits. The patient experiencing this might have symptoms of mild low thyroid, or might be asymptomatic, but research is showing a link between this "normal" thyroid and fertility difficulty. We'll talk about:

  • The effects of high and low thyroid on women's fertility
  • The suprising effect of low-normal thyroid levels on fertility
  • Thyroid testing
  • TPO antibodies (or thyroid peroxidase antibodies) and their effects on fertility in women with normal thyroid levels
  • Thyroid hormones and when they are prescribed for women in fertility situations
  • The effects of hyperthyroid and hypothyroid on sperm levels and sperm morphology (that is high and low thyroid function)
  • Routine thyroid screening in pregnancy
  • How naturopathic doctors can help

Thyroid is a known cause of fertility difficulty, but not all doctors are aware of the link between low-normal thyroid function and impaired fertility.
