    Dr. Ben,
    I listened to you video and I thought it was very helpful. I have spent the past 2 years receiving help and for some reason I was not able to tolerate methyocobalmin and my skin was burning, itching and my body was very sore (still is). I tried a number of things but I am now wondering if my nutritionist was missing either that I have the COMT or mercury. I had 10 amalgams and I could taste the metal and I did explain that. I have been off all vitamins (as I can’t even tolerate multi – never have) and my body is still in a worse state than before I was on the methyocobalmin. Your video does not mention Mercury – what is your opinion on mercury?

    Thank you so much!

      Hi Doreen – Dr. Ben has written an article on mercury and proper almalgam removal, so it is safe to say that he feels that mercury fillings are definitely a health issue. You can read the article here:

        Thank you. Just to clarify, what is his position in terms of starting on B12/methylfolate prior to amalgam removal.

        Thanks again for your assistance.

    Wow, such a wonderful and informative presentation, this provides a lot of information that people need to know before they see their doctors for treatment. Congratulations on such a great website and sharing your hard earned knowledge. The only question I would have is why you stop methyl B12 and Methylfolate treatment for C677TT homozygous sufferers after the initial ramp up and then switch to B6, B2 and TMG? Isn’t the folate blockage there for life, why would treatment need to stop?

    is that available in a pdf? I really would like to have that as a reference.

  4. (FAQ) Frequently Asked Questions • MTHFR Living - January 10, 2015

    […] People with MTHFR gene mutations want to take the active forms of folate, which include methylfolate and folinic acid. You want to avoid the synthetic folic acid, which can be found in traditional supplements and fortified foods like bread, flour, processed foods, conventional pastas, etc. Dr. Lynch talks about the different forms of folate here. It is important to remember that you want to have an adequate intake of B12 as well in a form you can tolerate (preferably not cyanocobalamin). Dr. Lynch discusses all of this in his video on methylation and methylation defects. […]
