International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

Doc /Practitioner specialised in methylation / detox issues?

    I got diagnosed with CFS a year ago and am convinced that i have methylation issues (recent Yasko testing revealed several double mutations (CBS / A360A, MTRR / A66G, MAO A / R297R). A recent liver detox test also revealed that i have a sluggish Phase 2 and a few years back i did the adrenal stress index which showed i have stage 3 adrenal fatigue. I am currently considering doing a methylation pathway test (on a functional level) to see what the current status of my methylation pathways are.

    I know a lot of people on this forum have decided to experiment with various methylation protocols themselves, but i am wary to do so alone. Each time i have tried to take B12, methylfolate or any other supplement targeting detoxification (e.g. DIM, turmeric) i have felt very unwell and have become anxious and shaky. On one occasion i ended up in my GP's office!

    I am therefore looking for a doctor / practitioner (based in Europe / UK) who has some knowledge of methylation. Dr Lynch's site lists a few practitioners in the UK who have completed his course on Methylation and Nutrigenomics I and II. Has anyone tried any of these doctors / practitioners out? I have read about Nikki Gratrix who specialises in helping CFS patients and has also completed Dr Lynch's course.

    Any advice / suggestions would be useful

    Hello @Tashy32 !

    I was wondering of you ever found a good practitioner for methylation/solution to this problem as I have the exact issues you describe with Freddd's protocol.

    Also, what liver detox test did you do? I think that's my main issue too!

    Thanks a lot for your help on this!
