Re: Contraception

Darn, no one has responded! I thought this was a great question and really wanted to read what someone with direct knowledge would say. We do emphasize hormonal balance for ApoE4s. Absolutely! In general, when many of us think of hormones we think sex hormones, but there are so many more! Other imp...

Contraception

I'm currently comparing birth control methods and am looking for any insight into how hormonal options might affect cognitive (and general) health. I've heard that some functional practitioners don't want their patients on hormonal contraception at all, but I don't have the background to evaluate wh...

Re: Overmethylation and Heart Health

My own experience has been that I needed to adjust folate down as I added other methylation support. With that much creatine and PC, you might be ending up with excess SAMe from folate, because creatine and PC are reducing the need for the folate/SAMe in supplying the major methyltransferases PEMT ...

Re: Overmethylation and Heart Health

I don't know the amounts of each you are taking, but excess folate can certainly lead to insomnia, and most likely your elevated heart rate.

Overmethylation and Heart Health

Due to my wacky genes, I currently take a bunch of supplements for methylation (methyl folate, B12, P5P, creatine and phosphatidylcholine). Although I'm 26 and in good shape, my homocysteine was once very high, which was what motivated me to start supplementing. I have a suspicion that I might be ov...

Re: Free documentary series Broken Brain 2 hosted by Dr. Mark Hyman

I concur! I've used mine for over a year now and I absolutely love it. I'm considering purchasing one. Some reviewers on Amazon claimed that the machine was quite sensitive and that all the components needed to align in order for it to function properly. Has that been your experience too? Hi Rainbo...
