MTHFR Gene Mutation Protocol
This protocol is designed to support the body’s ability to properly carry out the process of methylation. Methylation is one of the ways that the body makes sure the right genes are turned on, and the ones that we don’t want to get turned off. It means that even if we have a gene that predisposes us to a disease like Alzheimer’s, we can help that gene to stay silent by supporting healthy methylation.
“If you already know what MTHFR is, perhaps you know that you have a variant of this gene such as C677T or A1298C. If you have two copies of the C677T gene (this means you are homozygous for this variant) then the MTHFR enzyme’s activity can drop by 70-75%. If you have one copy of this gene (heterozygote) then the activity can be reduced by 33-35%. If you have two copies of the A1298C variant you may lose 39% of MTHFR activity. Methylation – What’s All the Fuss? – Kara Fitzgerald ND
But the presence of the MTHFR gene variant in your genetic structure does not mean that the variant has to express itself.
Your body has methods of turning off bad genes as much as it has the ability to stimulate the expression of good genes. This turning on and turning off of jeans is controlled primarily through environmental factors, the most important one being nutrition and food choices.
Methionine is essential for the synthesis of proteins and many other biomolecules required for survival. Rats fed a diet without methionine develop fatty liver disease which was show to be corrected by methionine supplements: [DIGESTIVE DISEASES AND SCIENCES; Oz,HS; 53(3):767-776 (2008)]. Since methylation is dependant on essential amino acids that you can only get from your diet, dietary methionine is essential for DNA methylation. Reduced DNA methylation results in genetic instability and aberrant gene expression.
Natural variation in this gene is common in healthy people. Remember, genes only express themselves when they get a chemical signal to do so. Just as genes can be harmed by outside influences, such as radiation and toxic chemicals, so can gene expression be helped by outside influences as well, the major one being nutritional status.
Supporting healthy methylation is actually a good anti-aging strategy since we tend to lose methylation capacity as we age since we do not eat the foods our great-grandparents ate so long ago.
Unless we are well versed in the subject, it is easy to misunderstand the vital importance of nutritionally dense foods, not just for our overall nutritional well-being, but for the vital control of our genetic structure especially when it comes to abnormal gene variants. Without a full-time cook following you around it can be difficult to get the proper food to support healthy methylation on a regular basis. I mean, who wants to gnaw on a liver organ, really?.
So we have put together a protocol that supports your body’s need to have healthy gene expression, replication, and to even help your body’s inner intelligence to know when to put the gene variant (mutation) back to sleep.
MTHFR Gene Mutation Protocol
the MTHFR Gene Mutation Protocol, however, we do not recommend nutritional support for non-patients using generic protocols. To access our Patient-Only content on The Forbidden Doctor website, you must start by filling out our Symptom Survey. Dr. Stockwell and his staff will review and provide customized supplement protocols for each new patient entering our practice. These personalized protocols will save you money immediately by guiding you to only the supplements you need. Once you are a patient who has been evaluated, you will be granted access to the Patient Portal and all of our Symptom Library protocols, including this one. There will also be a treasure trove of forbidden information that’s been kept from you for at least 90 years.Take The Symptom Survey
Folic Acid-B12 (3, twice a day) or Cataplex B12 (3, twice a day)
Protefood (1/twice a day)
Zypan (3 with each meal)
Longlife Energy Enzymes (2, morning & night, on an empty stomach)
LivCo MediHerb (1, twice a day)
Sesame Seed Oil (2, twice a day)
Cyruta Plus (4, twice a day)
Enzycore (2 with each meal)

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BULLETS BEFORE USING THIS PROTOCOL
- The protocol above is designed to address your issues at the foundational level, and not to treat disease. This means, in our opinion, most of our health problems, short of accident or trauma, are of a dietary nutritional deficiency. The listed protocol or supplement provides your body with essential micro and macronutrients to help and assist normal nutritional balance.
- Daily dosages are in ( ) parenthesis for most protocols; for example (6) means take 6 per day, but spread it out by taking half in the morning and a half in the evening. Some protocols will have more specific instructions to follow.
- MediHerb products, shown in italics, often speed healing response and should be considered for most protocols unless contraindicated.
- We recommend adding the General Health Daily Fundamentals pack to each protocol. This adds to the critical foundational nutrition each protocol needs. It contains Catalyn––an entirely whole-food and glandular broad-spectrum multivitamin, Trace Minerals-B12, and Tuna Omega-3 pearls for your DHA and EPA omega 3 fatty acids daily requirements.
- Spacing out the daily doses throughout the day improves absorption and is strongly recommended.
- Most supplements should be taken with food except for PMG’s, most calcium products, Gastrex, Chlorophyll Complex™, Okra Pepsin E3, Cholocol II, and Zymex II. Also, most herbs work more efficiently if taken away from food.
- Be advised that these nutritional and herbal products are not intended as primary therapy for any disease, but rather to provide nutritional and herbal support to help normalize body physiology and repair.
