Have You Considered Methylation Testing?

Did you know that without the process of methylation, your body is like a car out of gas that comes to a screeching halt?  It’s true – methylation is a major and fundamental determinant of your health and sickness.

The seemingly simple process of methylation – the transfer of methyl groups (CH3) among various compounds in your body – is critical to your health, wellbeing and longevity. In more simple terms, methylation is what occurs when your body takes one substance and turns it into another, so it can be detoxified and excreted from your body. The process plays a critical role in maintaining DNA integrity, improving neurological function, detoxifying your liver, processing fats and is connected to practically each biochemical process in your body. We gradually run out of  this “methyl power” as we age, but methylation testing and methylation treatment can help you enjoy better health and potentially extend your life span. Luckily, holistic medical doctors like Red Bank, New Jersey’s Michael Rothman MD, can perform methylation detection to see if you have a deficiency.

Common conditions associated with methylation deficiency
Faulty methylation has been linked to heart disease, stroke, neural tube defects, Alzheimer’s disease, colon cancer, reproductive cancers, kidney infarct, cervical dysplasia, faulty detoxification and impaired DNA repair.

How can methylation detection help?
When you have poor methylation, your body’s levels of homocysteine (an amino acid that’s toxic to your body) elevate. High levels of homocysteine have been shown to cause heart disease and stroke in scientific studies.  These same studies found that certain B vitamins decreased homocysteine levels, thereby stopping the heart disease process. Part of the problem also lies in our diet. As a whole, our modern farming and agricultural practices have affected our food supply such that our diets do not supply sufficient methyl groups for our health and well being.. Also many people have specific genetic variants that increase their need for methylated products in their diets or supplements.

Fortunately, modern science has allowed us to discover solutions to bypass these genetic, lifestyle and dietary limitations. A thorough evaluation and methylation treatment by a holistic doctor at Michael Rothman MD will look at your individual metabolic needs as well as any lifestyle and eating habits that may be contributing to a methylation deficiency.
