    Can anyone tell me if taking supplements for the methylation protocol can cause a relapse in cancer, particularly non Hodgkin's lymphoma? I have read that there needs to be a balance between hyper and hypo methylation in cancer. I don't know how much this protocol can actually affect cancer.

    I think there's some indication that folates or folic acid can feed cancer cells, so might be associated with causing some problems there. But basically it's a complicated subject, and you really need to talk to a methylation and cancer savvy doctor about it.

    Perhaps you could also ask for a dr recommendation at Ben Lynch's blog. He usually replies to questions in the comments
    http://mthfr.net/preventing-methylfolate-side-effects/2014/11/26/
    Aternalively there a link just for questions on the top of the page, but I don't know how often he replies there.
