Anxiety & Mutant Gene MTHFR
Our phones and emails have been running hot with enquiries about Mutant Gene MTHFR and its effect on anxiety and mood disorders. There is a blood test available that will confirm if this condition is present and this test can be organised for you at PNMC through an appointment with our GP Dr McCarthy or with one of our naturopaths.
Natalie Pickering, one of our naturopaths specialising in fertility, regularly checks for this gene as it can be responsible for repeat miscarriages in women.
Other blood factors including homocysteine levels need to be tested in the same blood sample in order to gain a true picture of the correct nutrients required to bypass this mutant MTHFR gene – simply taking folinic acid alone will not achieve great results.
