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.

    I just found out that Australia has a MTHFR support site and this site seems to have some great info if anyone wants to check it out (the site isnt as overwhelming as the where I find I get too much info overload).

    I suggest anyone who has MTHFR mutations to check out the following,


    ohh.. warning thou, you not like some of what you read if you look into the conditions. My 23andME test came back that I was at a 39% risk of getting Alzeihemers Disease from the age of 50 years due to the Alzeihemers gene.. and now I just found out the following relationship with MTHFR

    ". Elhawary et al (2013) examined the relationship between the MTHFR 677TT mutation and Alzheimer’s Disease. The frequency of the T allele was found to be 3 times higher in AD patients when compared to controls, with the most severe cases of AD found in patients carrying the 677TT mutation."

    @taniaaust1 Thanks for the link. On the "About" page, she's written:
    My personal assumption as we move forward, is that the work we're doing to repair our methylation cycles is mitigating against the nasty diseases. We are healing and repairing at the cellular level. Cheers from sunny NSW:balloons:
