MTHFR and Your Mental Health

MTHFR has been a common buzzword for the last few years. Many people believe it’s these methylation genes that are responsible for the colossal rise in so many diseases and serious health conditions like:

→  Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
→  Anxiety
→  Fibromyalgia
→  Infertility
→  Multiple Sclerosis
→  Dementia
→  Chronic Inflammation
→  Alzheimer’s
→  Bipolar Disorder
→  Blood clots
→  Stroke
→  Depression
→  Chemical Sensitivity
→  Brain fog
→  Low energy
→  Insomnia and other sleep issues→  …And many other conditions

While variations in MTHFR genes (or mutations as many know them) can contribute to these serious conditions, they may not be the bad guys or the sole cause of why you may struggle with brain-related issues or other symptoms or conditions.

First, let’s zoom out and look at the bigger picture to understand how the concept of epigenetics works and how to approach using your genetic blueprint as a roadmap in your healing plan of action.

First of all, our genes are not our fate!

In fact, only 1% of diseases can be blamed on our genetic factors. This means we can no longer blame our genes for our health issues because updated science now proves that 99% of the time, WE HAVE CONTROL OVER HOW OUR GENES FOR WORK FOR OR AGAINST US!

Your commitment to self-love in your healing journey

by Ann Hutyra, Lead Biological Health Coach

Hi Tribe!

I hope you are all having a blessed 2023 so far! As we recently celebrated the popular Valentine’s Day in February, many focused on the LOVE they have in their life. That might have looked like romantic love, the love between you and your gal pals, or the love you share with your kids, parents, or siblings. For many of us, February was also a great time to be reminded of the love we have for ourselves.

If you ask 100 people for a definition of self-love, you will likely get 100 different answers. And every single one of them is right! It doesn’t really matter HOW you practice self-love – as long as you practice it on a regular basis. For many of our clients, the act of practicing self-love can be challenging. If you’ve been chronically sick for a while, it can be hard to find the energy and motivation to do something for yourself outside of just making it through the day. Not to mention being stuck in the mindset of being sick – which can make it hard to find joy in small acts of self-love.

If this resonates with you, I invite you to focus this year, in 2023, on really honing in on what self-love means to you – and come up with an action plan on how you plan to make self-love a regular part of your routine. Here are a few of my personal favorite acts of self-love, and how I implement them.

  • Morning mantras –- before I get out of bed in the morning, I spend 10 minutes or so meditating. I like to run through a series of affirming “I AM” statements.
    “I AM beautiful, I AM strong, I AM loved, I AM abundance…”
  • Cooking Healthy Meals –- cooking high-quality, healthy food for ourselves is one of the greatest gifts of self-love you can give to yourself. If you have a hard time creating a routine around daily cooking, try meal prepping, crock pot meals, and even setting aside one afternoon on the weekend to do all your prep and set yourself up for success.
  • Daily Movement – after spending many years on my own healing, I find myself being driven and dedicated to daily gym sessions – but that wasn’t always the case. Even just 15 or 20 minutes of stretching on your living room floor or a leisurely walk with your dog around the neighborhood counts as movement! My goal is to MOVE every day – once this becomes a habit for you, you truly appreciate the self-love involved in that daily decision.

Breathing For Energy

There are many root causes of low energy, ranging from having hormonal or thyroid imbalances, to blood sugar dysregulation, adrenal fatigue, infections, to chemical and mold toxins – but did you know that the way you breathe can also contribute to a host of symptoms and conditions including low energy?

At Modern Holistic Health, we know how critical breath is to healing, health, and vitality. This is why we incorporate one of the top breath therapy practitioners in the country to work with our clients. We even have foundational breathwork included in our Mind | Body | Energy Program because we know how people change their breathing patterns when they have been sick for a long time, and we know how important it is to re-teach our clients how to breathe for healing and health.

But learning how to use various breathing techniques isn’t just important for those who have been chronically ill for years… it’s beneficial for ALL of us! In fact, I personally have experienced the amazing benefits of breathwork and so has most of our team!

If you are looking for the little but powerful things you can do to improve your performance, decrease unnecessary stress, and help optimize your body, just 10 minutes of breathwork each day can really make a difference!

I’m incredibly excited to share a new live virtual event with you from energy expert Ari Whitten. He’s teaching a new system that he says is “the single fastest method to increase energy levels that I’ve found in 25 years of studying health science.”

You can sign up HERE.

In this live virtual event happening tonight, Thursday, March 9th at 4:30 pm PT, he’s giving away the secrets of how to use specific breathing practices such as:

→  How to measure your body’s vitality/energy with a simple 1-minute test

→  Rewire your nervous system out of stress mode and dramatically decrease anxiety levels

→  The 4 keys to optimal breathing (and how to rewire your brain into doing it automatically)

→  Why dysfunctional breathing is a common cause of brain fog and mood problems (and how to fix it)

→  Why breathing practices are often the secret key to helping you sleep deeper than you have since you were a kid

Where Did All The Iodized Salt Go?

Every single human being needs iodine to function, and most are deficient in it.

Are you getting enough? Common symptoms of low iodine can look like:

→  Unexplained weight gain
→  Difficulty losing weight
→  Hair Loss
→  Dry skin
→  Sensitivity to cold
→  Difficulty learning new things
→  Poor memory
→  Weakness & fatigue
→  Menstrual irregularities

They’re all signs that you may not be getting enough iodine from your diet.

Iodine is also an important molecule for your thyroid and your brain.

When iodine was discovered in 1811, many people around the world were found to be deficient in this chemical element, so governments came together in one of the largest cross-border initiatives to make it more available. They added it to salt in the form of iodide.

And it sort of worked — for a few decades…

Then something happened… Salt became villainized for its link to high blood pressure.

People stopped eating iodized salt.

Health problems related to low levels of iodine began to rise again. And they are still present today.

It’s always been difficult to get a plentiful amount of iodine from food and water alone, but now there’s a way.

It’s called Perfect Iodine.

It’s a first-of-its-kind aqueous iodine solution that you can drink a small amount of daily.

It delivers pharmaceutical-grade iodine that’s easy to digest and safe to take.

Most importantly, it supports a hormone gland responsible for your heart, metabolism, brain, bones, and more — even your thyroid!

Your Water – They Don’t Want You To Know This

Did you know that The Clean Water Act has not been updated in the past 30 years?

Yup, since 1986, no new chemicals have been added to the list of regulated contaminants, which means more chemicals are allowed in our water and environment than ever before.

What’s worse… less than 10% of violations have been enforced.

If you think your standard filter is doing the trick to deliver clean, safe water…

This is your sign to think again.

Disease-causing contaminants have been found in 80% of water supplies.

Over 250 contaminants have been detected.

Here are the big ones you need to be aware of…

→  Lead
→  Chromium-6
→  Cryptosporidium
→  Arsenic
→  Herbicides/Pesticides
→  Perchlorate
→  Chlorine
→  Fluoride
→  And if you live in the eastern part of the country… add vinyl chloride to this list

These are just a handful of the most toxic contaminants found in drinking water. And it is affecting 250 million Americans across all 50 states.

Even at low exposure, these toxins can drastically affect almost all areas of the body for both adults and children.

So what can you do?

Well, you could boil water… but unfortunately that only increases the concentration of contaminants.

What about bottled water?

Unfortunately, microplastic contamination has been found in 93% of bottled water.

Not to mention the cost of bottled water being a minimum of $150 per month… for even the most basic water.

What about standard filtration systems?

Gravity-based water pitchers remove a few pollutants from your water. And reverse osmosis systems are expensive, require professional installation, need ongoing maintenance, and waste 80% of water.

But there is one affordable, efficient, and effective solution that I have in my home…

That’s Aquatru!

It’s easy to use and maintain, provides deliciously healthy water that is pure, tasty, and virtually free of all toxic chemicals – and is cost-saving and sustainable.

Click Here to get the most affordable, efficient, and effective solution to clean water.

Make sure you’re prepared to avoid the nasty toxins in water they DON’T want you to know about
