Frequently Asked Questions
What is MTHFR
The process of methylation also involves the enzyme from the MTHFR gene, so those with amutation may have trouble effectively eliminating toxins from the body. The genetics home reference offers more detail: The MTHFR gene provides instructions for making an enzyme called methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase.
What is Pyroluria
Pyroluria is a genetically determined chemical imbalance involving an abnormality in haemoglobin synthesis. Haemoglobin is the protein that holds iron in the red blood cell. Individuals with this disorder produce too much of a byproduct of haemoglobin synthesis called “kryptopyrrole” (KP) or “hemepyrrole.”
What is Gut Dysbiosis or SIBO
Dysbiosis is most commonly reported as a condition in the digestive tract. It has been reported to be associated with illnesses, such as inflammatory bowel disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, obesity, cancer, bacterial vaginosis, and colitis.
SIBO is a condition in which colonic-type bacteria (resembling bacteria normally found in the colon) proliferate in large numbers in the small intestine. SIBO may be caused by dysfunction of intestinal nerves or muscles, intestinal obstruction, or the presence of a blind loop.
What is Heavy metal toxicity
The heavy metals most commonly associated with poisoning of humans are lead, mercury, arsenic and cadmium. Heavy metal poisoning may occur as a result of industrial exposure, air or water pollution, foods, medicines, improperly coated food containers, or the ingestion of lead-based paints.
