See all the Healthcast’s at https://www.biobalancehealth.com/healthcast-blog/ There is a silent and UNTREATED, UNTESTED mutation then affects 1/3 of Americans, that causes pulmonary emboli, heart attacks and strokes, and can be treated/prevented by just taking a specific vitamin!   No one talks about the MTHFR genetic mutation that can be diagnosed by testing for high Homocysteine and can be treated by simply changing the B vitamins that you take to methyl-B12 and Methyl Folate!  Simple and easy, and can prevent a multitude of diseases, for both young and old.   There is an abundance of information in journals of medical specialties who still don’t embrace testing for this mutation, therefore they don’t diagnose and treat this very expensive problem with a very inexpensive vitamin.  What the heck is going on in American Medicine? American Medicine treats one symptom or current illness at a time and is completely blind to preventing disease unless a very expensive drug can treat the problem, such as statins to prevent heart attacks.  Preventive, individualized medicine is a thing of the future because US medicine is stuck in the past. I discovered the MTHFR mutation decades ago because as a GYN I treated infertility.  MTHFR mutation causes multiple miscarriages and pregnancy losses in fertile women who have the mutation.  In the diagnosis of why someone miscarries this is often the answer.  Treatment is NOT TAKING plain vitamin B12 called cyanocobalamin, or regular folic acid.  The second part of the treatment is TAKING methyl B12 and methyl-folate.   When we tested patients for the MTHFR mutation we found it was fairly common, in fact so common, that the FDA should change its recommendations for multivitamin supplements and B complex vitamins, as well as prenatal vitamins to include Methyl folate and methyl cobalamin instead of the non-methylated vitamins that can cause both infertility in the young and heart attack and stroke in the aging population. Why doesn’t the government change the recommendations for B vitamins in all supplements, and prenatal vitamins to save babies lives? I believe that I have a granddaughter today because my brilliant daughter took methyl B12 and Methyl folate instead of the standard prenatal vitamins!  I have this mutation as well and I had 5 miscarriages and I believe that my one gene mutation caused them…and 36 years ago I was not aware of this mutation, or how to fix it.   How do we find this mutation? MTHFR mutation, discovered by doing a Homocysteine blood level, could prevent infertility and strokes, pulmonary emboli, heart attacks, and vascular disease in older Americans. If doctors do diagnose a high Homocysteine, they recommend giving more B12 (not methylated) and Folic acid and patients get worse and are at higher risk than before.   As for mature adults who have had a whole lifetime of exposure to the wrong type of B12 and folate, the form of the vitamins a third of us cannot metabolize, we have a lifetime of soft plaque collections in our blood vessels which is just as dangerous as the hard plaque from cholesterol atherosclerosis plaques that statins treat. Soft plaque breaks off as emboli and causes blood clots, pulmonary emboli and emboli to the brain causing strokes and emboli to the heart causing a heart attack. One third of us have this mutation, but few of us know about it.  Taking the right kind of B vitamins can stabilize these soft plaques and even reduce them, thereby preventing the embolization they cause.   Why are fewer people diagnosed from an abnormal Homocysteine and tested for MTHFR?   Even if your doctor does a Homocysteine blood level, by drawing your blood at the laboratory.  the lab companies have a skewed view of the “normal levels” of homocysteine.  They give you the “average for the people they test” and call it “in range”, but if 1/3 of the population is abnormal statistically the “normal” is skewed to > 10.4.  My normal for patients who don’t have the mutation and are not at risk for collecting soft plaque, is < (less than) 8.0.  If you have less or equal to 8 you are probably safe. If you are above 8.0 you are either taking Methyl-B12 and Methyl-folate or you are not carrying a mutation. How does Homocysteine work to cause soft plaque? If you are normal, and don’t have this mutation, when you e
