    I have had very serious reactions to methyl B12 and methyl folate, including seizures and severe psychiatric problems. I just cannot get beyond a miniscule dose of 10 mcg of mb12 and 200 mcg of 50% Quatrefolic and 50% calcium folinate without losing the ability to sleep. So I'm wondering if whole food sources of these nutrients such as freeze dried liver capsules and large amounts of leafy greens would actually help me make any significant progress in healing? Any experience or insight would be appreciated.

    Liver is a good source of both B12 and folate, so your idea could work.

    Or you could try hydroxocobalamin instead of methylcobalamin. That is what richvank used in his simplified methylation protocol.

    I also think Ben Lynch's advice on how to prevent methylation side effects is good.
