Methylation Part 2: Sustainable solutions

This week on the Evolution of Medicine Podcast, we feature Naturopathic doctor and IFM faculty member, Dr. Kara Fitzgerald. This is the 2nd of two podcasts about methylation.  Dr. Fitzgerald has just written a new book on this popular topic and any practitioner looking to help their patients most effectively will want to listen.

The “dance of methylation” extends far beyond supplementing with B12 and methylated folate. Indeed, long-term outcome studies using this approach are lacking, and research suggests caution is advised with regard to imbalanced hypermethylation. However, much can be done to safely support methylation balance.

  • amazing statistic about methylation and how it affects the body
  • clinical areas in which meth might be an issue
  • sensible ways to help patients deal with methylation
