My doctor finally came up with the ideal to test me for MTHFR a few months ago, and sure enough had a positive result.
The basic rules are that if you are working with a regular medical doctor and they have diagnosed you with something or the other, you can't come here and ask for a plan of treatment. Almost all US state laws are written such that any direct advice here could be considered "unlicensed practice of medicine."
Carey Reams was gifted the knowledge that ALL disease is a mineral deficiency and that is all we really discuss here. Yes, we are forced to often use the medical terms so that one person knows what another is talking about, but there is no diagnosis and no treatment for symptoms as such allowed on this forum.
We heal nothing and we cure nothing. What we do is analyze the urine and saliva for 7 important factors. We then work with basic calciums (which happens to be the most abundant mineral in the body by weight and by volume). By doing so, the other needed minerals usually ride in along with it. Sometimes there are special minerals such as easily assimilable iron added. But mostly it is calcium---primarily in food, but frequently with supplementation.
We are not responsible for all the ills that magically melt away when the urine/saliva values are kept within the perfect health parameters. It is not our fault. It is simply something you have to get used to. OK, so the doc said you had lumbago (or whatever) and it went away once you held your numbers right for a while. Yes, we understand you didn't actually tell him about this number stuff because you knew he would think you were talking gibberish. Please don't blame us or credit us. "Bye, bye, lumbago" is just your body doing what it automatically does when you are drinking the right amount of water and the minerals are present to allow for the replacement of ageing cells.
I'm sure your licensed doctor has suggestions for treating this "MTHFR" (or any of the other diseases listed in the PDR). We don't, we won't, and we can't treat things that way because we are not licensed to do so. We have no magic pills and we wouldn't tell you if we did. We can only offer the urine/saliva analysis and help you gently nudge your numbers to be more in line with the perfect health numbers. You (and your body) are on your own after that. If your licensed doctor says your disease (by whatever name he calls it) has "regressed," that is between you and him/her. Sure, you can later tell us about it, but please don't say that we "did it." We do nothing, we heal nothing, we cure nothing because we can't legally do so.
