    What is your understanding of the methylation cycle trap or blockage?

    I've read different viewpoints of what the problem is with methylation and its potential causes.

    Alternative ways to get extra potassium?

    I've finally got my methlyation up enough that my need for potassium has increased. However, I'm having a problem getting potassium into my body. My digestive system will not absorb more than 50 mg/day if that when I take supplements and that's spread out. I think this is partially due to being...

    I have seen "overmethylation" mentioned in a few threads and I want to ask what is it? How would you know if you were "overmethylating"? I am taking transdermal B12 (methylcobalamin) spray which I bought from Dr Myhill's online shop. She recommends 5-10 sprays daily. I'm currently on 6 sprays...
