At Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic, we can provide MTHFR gene testing to determine whether your body is adequately converting folates to active 5-MTHFR. Insufficient conversion can lead to a variety of physical and mental health issues, which is why it’s important to get tested before serious problems arise.
MTHFR is an enzyme involved in processing folates. Also referred to as Vitamin B9, folates are required to synthesise DNA and RNA, which is important for maintaining proper cellular function. They are also responsible for metabolising amino acids, which are essential for the healthy production of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine.
Folate is also required for the formation and maturation of red blood cells and white blood cells. Difficulties converting folates to active 5-MTHFR interferes with these processes, making it difficult for the body to activate or deactivate neurotransmitters, tissue repair, inflammation, stress responses, and more. Methylation deficiencies can also lead to growth issues and chronic diseases.
At Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic, we boast a highly trained and experienced team. Our goal is to provide advice and assistance and give you the best possible experience. You can rely on us to provide comprehensive MTHFR gene testing that not only identifies deficiencies but also offers natural solutions to restore balance.
