In this informative introduction with questions and answers, Dr Liz Mumper shares more about the themes and masterclass topics that she and her colleagues, Drs Nancy O’Hara and Robert Naviaux will be presenting. Dr Mumper’s insights demonstrate how the Mindd International Forum will impact your clinical practice.
The impact of migraines on day-to-day functioning is substantial, hence the need for effective treatment and understanding of how to identify triggers. Dr Mumper will review some of the less common triggers to which you or your children may be exposed and discuss effective treatments.
Dr O’Hara calls MTHFR the mother gene because it interferes with folate metabolism. Folate is a B vitamin and we get it in green leafy vegetables and other food. It gets broken down in the body, so it’s really important for brain development and detoxification in general. These metabolites of folate are vital to decrease anxiety, tics, OCD and other childhood neurological symptoms. If you have a defect in the MTHFR gene, you are less able to metabolize or break down folate completely and you are more likely to have problems with detoxification, anxiety, tics, brain fog, and cognitive delays.
The prevalence of conditions such as Asthma, Eczema and Allergic Rhinitis that make up the Allergic Triad, has increased dramatically in the past few decades. It is vital to detect the underlying causes and triggers for these conditions, as they can often be dietary, lifestyle or environmentally related.
