Understanding Methylation: A Key Area of Restoring Health

Today we will be joined by Dr. Benjamin Lynch who is widely recognized as an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of methylation imbalances. While the word “methylation” may seem intimidating at first, we hope to talk our listeners through the basics of methylation so that they can readily understand how important it is to health and how they can properly address it.

Rich Van Konynenburg / In Memoriam

I am very sorry to let you know that Rich Van Konynenburg, PhD, died quietly early Tuesday morning. His wife contacted our doctor’s group to let people know, and asked that the information be passed on to those who might need to know. He appears to have suffered a heart attack.

Dr. Van Konynenburg was a generous man who spent much of his free time thinking of how to help patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Autism, and other possibly related illness. Though he was not a medical professional, he had a curious and methodic mind, which he put to use to come up with ideas that would be of help to others. Rich believed it is possible that a methylation block, causing glutathione depletion was an important trigger in causing symptoms in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and he developed the Simple Methylation Protocol as an over the counter treatment for patients to experiment with.

What Is the Methylation Protocol?

Many of the doctor’s responses to questions have referenced the methylation protocol. The following is an article explaining the simple methylation protocol. While this original article addresses Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, this protocol can be used in people with Lyme disease and other chronic illness as well. Some people may find they need a more complex methylation protocol to see improvement. As stated, even though this is a very simple protocol using over the counter supplements, the results can be very strong, so we recommend you do this protocol under the supervision of a physician.

A Simplified Methylation Protocol is Effective for the Treatment of Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia

Neil Nathan MD

I suspect that the words “methylation protocol” are, at first glance, intimidating. But if you will hang in with me for a few paragraphs, I would like to make this both understandable and useful.

First of all, what is most important is that we have recently shown that the use of tiny doses of very specific combinations of vitamin B-12 and folic acid, has resulted in significant improvement in patients with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. That’s the bottom line.

So, if you are suffering with chronic fatigue and/or fibromyalgia, you may be interested in learning more about our research, and what we learned. [Read more…]
