Methyl Genetic Nutrition Analysis (MGNA) Program

By Elizabeth Large, ND

Over the past 2 years, I have pursued my interest in applying the growing knowledge of genetic variability in the context of the individual with chronic illness. My ability to combine the genetic possibilities with your symptoms produces individualized protocols that give your body the support it needs to heal.

Methyl genetic nutrition analysis provides a cutting-edge approach to looking at genetic susceptibilities to developing chronic illness. Supporting your genetic susceptibilities with nutrition is based on current scientific research. I have found that looking at an individual’s genetic susceptibilities can provide the “Aha moment” in discovering a missing piece to lifelong health problems. Variants in DNA can impact your ability to make and use different nutrients critical for reducing inflammation, supporting healthy circulation, promoting a strong immunity, supporting emotional health, and proper removal of the toxins we are exposed to, as well as slowing the aging process.

I highly recommend this for everyone, either to prevent potential health conditions from developing, or to shed light on a chronic illness that you have been unable to cure. Understanding how DNA impacts human health and metabolic processes is the future of medicine.

New Treatments for Methylation and Chronic Illness

I am delighted to be joined today by Alan Vinitsky, MD who has extensive experience treating chronic illness, with a particular interest in understanding and treating the autonomic nervous system, environmental exposures, hormonal dysfunction and nutritional deficiencies. He has some new insights into imbalances in methylation and will bring this into today’s discussion.

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…]
