Understanding the MTHFR Gene Mutation and Its Impact On Your Body

Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) doesn’t exactly pop up in conversation regularly, and most people have no idea that a MTHFR gene mutation could be the root of their health problems. If you are showing signs of the gene mutation, are pregnant, or are planning to become pregnant, the MTHFR test is a very valuable tool that can help you improve your health.

The Basics About Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase

MTHFR is an enzyme that helps the body use folate, also known as vitamin B9, in the way it is intended. Folate, not to be confused with its synthetic form folic acid, is a critical nutrient in the body because it assists with DNA synthesis and repair, encourages cell and tissue growth, supports normal fetal development in pregnant women, and even promotes sperm viability in men. The importance of folate to a healthy body and developing baby cannot be underestimated, so it makes sense that people lacking the MTHFR enzyme struggle from health problems.

New Year, New You: Skin Rejuvenation in 2017

Hermann Wellness offers many life changing procedures and treatments to help you transform into a better, healthier individual. If you are struggling with weight, we have multiple diet plans including traditional calorie counting with a specific diet plan or optifast, a meal replacement program. With our diet plans, we offer MIC B, dietary supplements and appetite suppressants such as Phentermine, Contrave, Qysmia and Belviq if wanted in addition to the diet program.

We also treat other health issues that may aid in your ability to lose weight like hormone imbalance and thyroid problems. We provide bio-identical hormone replacement therapy via creams, troche, by mouth and pellets. Many people that struggle with weight also have endocrine issues like hypothyroidism. Traditional thyroid medications typically address TSH only, and many people feel better and have less symptoms if T3 and T4 are addressed in addition to TSH. Therefore, we use medications that address T3 and T4 such as WP Thyroid, Nature-Throid, Armour, and Cytomel. Diet also can aid in thyroid and other medical issues. Eighty percent of symptoms can be healed through the gut. So, here at Hermann Wellness, we have detox and anti-inflammatory diets for our patients.

What Cellulite? Smooth Skin Can Be Yours

Nobody wants cellulite, but it forms in its own stubborn way regardless. Many women with cellulite on their legs and buttocks feel self conscious and avoid wearing shorts or bathing suits. If you have lost your natural confidence due to bothersome cellulite, there is good news! Laser cellulite reduction is now available using the SmoothShapes laser to reduce the appearance of cellulite and help you embrace your body once again.

Why Does Cellulite Form?
Cellulite is caused by enlarged fat cells that become trapped right below the surface of the skin. Since the texture of the fat is visible through the skin, it causes the skin to look dimpled and crinkly, rather than smooth. It’s a common misconception that cellulite is caused by obesity and poor eating and exercising habits, but the truth is that genetic and hormonal factors are largely responsible for any cellulite on your body. Cellulite creams and “miracle cures” have been on the market for years offering empty promises, but the SmoothShapes laser provides scientifically proven results. Continue reading “What Cellulite?
