MTHFR Mutations Information



I have been trying to get a grip on my own genetic research. Needless to say, I have a huge headache. However, I do have a better, albeit slight, understanding of why my body seems to be rebelling against me. I encourage everyone to have their DNA tested especially if you are having health issues. The instructions stated that it may take as long as 6-8 weeks but I got mine back in 2. The results are sent to you via email and you receive a link to a secure page on their website to access your reports. Among these reports is your “raw data” file. This is the file you need to guard with your life.  🙂

You can send your raw data file to several companies who will do some pretty awesome research for you, mostly for free! Yes, free!

Here are some of the links I have found:

NutraHacker – This is an awesome place! They will give you a free methylation/detoxification report. This report will show you what medicines/vitamins to take and what to avoid. It will also show you which mutation is responsible. You may upload your raw data file or they will connect with 23andMe with no problems.   🙂

GeneticGenie – The genie will also provide a free methylation and detox report. You may be asking yourself, “Why would I need another. Didn’t I just do that on Nutrahacker?”. Well, what I have learned is that each company does their reports a little different. You may understand one better over another or one report may show something another does not. I have learned that you can never have too much information on this subject. The genie will also allow you to upload your own file or connect to 23andMe hassle-free.

Promethease Promethease is a great service. It is not free but is very low cost and the reports are well worth it! They also allow you to upload your own file or connect to 23andMe, as well as many other DNA sites. – This is a nifty page that explains the sites in a little more detail – complete with a chart.  🙂

The Daily OM

I just want to share this site with all of you. It has been very helpful to me and helps to keep me grounded in those times of high anxiety and stress. Which, in my case, is nearly every single day.

Why Your Fibro Meds Aren’t Working



For me, none of the marketed medications for Fibromyalgia has even come close to touching the pain I endure every single day. I have tried the big three (Cymbalta, Lyrica, and Savella) alone and in many different combinations to no avail.

I hope this article helps you to understand why these are found to be not beneficial to so many of us with chronic pain/fibromyalgia.

Sciatica Pain Relief


What Is Sciatica?

The sciatic nerve extends from the lumbar (lower) part of the spinal column, through the buttocks, down to the legs, which make it the largest nerve in the body.

This is why this condition causes pain which spreads throughout the body, usually affecting one side at a time.

Sciatic nerve pain can be caused by several different conditions, and quite often doctors fail to notice some of the most common causes.

Sciatic nerve pressed by a herniated disk is the most common diagnosed cause of this condition.

Whenever the sciatic nerve is pressed or irritated by some adjacent muscle, tumor, or bone it causes pain.

In some cases, a healthcare provider is not able to determine the origin of the inflammation/irritation.
