How is that the path we take in life is somehow absolutely appropriate and fitting for us?

Becoming a naturopathic physician with a specialty in environmental medicine and nutrigenomics, I am stunned at how critical this path was for me – and for my family.
If I had not chosen this path, two of my boys would most likely be quite autistic, my wife would be suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and my health would have been severely compromised.

As one who has spent a lot of time with MTHFR research and working with countless clients with MTHFR, I can safely say I am quite well-versed in MTHFR mutations.

I was waiting until my new comprehensive genetic test was nearly completed before I tested myself and my family for MTHFR.




As I nervously opened the genetic reports for each member of my family, I was blown away. (I am glad I was on vacation when I opened these documents.)

  • Theodor Lynch, Male, Age 3: Homozygous A1298C
  • Mathew Lynch, Male, Age 6: Heterozygous A1298C + Heterozygous C677T
  • Tasman Lynch, Male, Age 9, Heterozygous A1298C
  • Nadia Lynch, Female, Age 35, Heterozygous A1298C
  • Benjamin Lynch, Male, Age 38, Heterozygous A1298C + Heterozygous C677T

My mindset totally shifted from simply being a father to suddenly being my childrens’ guide and physician. Without my assistance, their future is grim.

“Oh, shit.”

Yes. Those were the exact words when I saw Theodor’s and Mathew’s test results.

A million concerns ran through my head wondering what I should do.

Then, I realized something.

“I’m already doing something for them – many ‘somethings’.”

  1. Gluten Free Diet
  2. Dairy Free Diet
  3. Probiotics
  4. Sauna for whole family at least 20 times a year
  5. Filtered water
  6. No carpets in the house
  7. Air purification
  8. Organic food
  9. Very limited processed foods
  10. No artificial soaps, odors, perfumes
  11. No cleaning solutions – just natural soaps, vinegar
  12. Limited pressboard in our home
  13. Organic bedding and mattresses
  14. Multivitamin with methylfolate, pure fish oil, CoQ10, Cal/Mag, vitamin D3
  15. Limited sugar intake
  16. No soda
  17. Highly active in sports and outdoors for all of us
  18. Studying piano
  19. Speaking and learning Russian

All of these are critical to treating MTHFR mutations.

Many doctors typically tell their patients with newly diagnosed MTHFR mutations:

  • “Take 5 mg of folic acid a day and you’ll be fine.”
  • “MTHFR is nothing to worry about.”
  • “Take 1 x 15 mg Deplin daily and you’ll be great.”
  • “Take NeevoDHA while pregnant along with Lovenox and all will be great.”

All of these recommendations are wrong – in my opinion.

If you are not doing 1 through 16 above, then you are not fully addressing your MTHFR mutation.

Let me give you some more background: 

Both Mathew and Theo were slow to speak yet are quite healthy overall.

Mathew’s speech is now fantastic yet he has an accent – I believe this comes from his mother’s thick Russian accent. She was his one and only person to interact with – well – besides his older brother.  I was not around in his younger years (medical school is extremely demanding for 5 years). Then add on the fact that Mathew was not in an English speaking daycare/preschool until later.

Slow speech can be attributed to a few things in Mathew’s and Theo’s life:

  1. We’re a bilingual family: Russian and English
  2. Summers spent in Russia during critical language development (no English spoken).
  3. MTHFR, PEMT and GAMT mutations
  4. Me having been in medical school and not around much to interact with my children.
  5. Not starting an English preschool or interaction with many other English speaking children until later – age 5 for Mathew. Theodor is in Russian preschool now.

I smiled when I saw my wife’s MTHFR results.

I test her for everything and she nearly always comes back squeaky clean yet she suffered terribly with Rheumatoid Arthritis from the young age of 17 until 31.

She now is literally ‘normal’ and living life without rheumatoid arthritis.


Lifestyle, diet and supplements.

Medications? NONE.

“Is that right?”

These were the words I internally said to myself as I stared at the lab report for Benjamin Lynch.

1 copy of A1298C and 1 copy of C677T

I was amazingly calm but confused.

How come I am not showing more symptoms?

I used to – in a big way.

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Chemically sensitive
  • Skin rashes
  • Always low WBC levels

I now follow points 1 to 17 on the above list and have been for years. This is why I show no symptoms.

In a nutshell:

MTHFR mutations do not control you. You control them.

I, and my family, are living proof that you can beat MTHFR mutations through proper lifestyle, diet and supplementation – and mindset.

How much methylfolate are we all taking?

None of us are taking more than 400 mcg a day currently.

MTHFR is not about methylfolate.

MTHFR mutations demand a healthy lifestyle and some methylfolate.

I’m sorry.

There is no pill for MTHFR.

There is no surgery for MTHFR.

What there is for MTHFR is work and awareness.

If you respect what you put into your body and what is around it, you’ll lead a healthy life.

Now – it is not always this easy.

Why not?

Because there are other potential mutations which increase the severity of the MTHFR mutation.


Main point I want to leave you with though is you control your genetics.

They do not control you.

See Theo celebrate!!

He doesn’t care he has the MTHFR A1298C homozygous variant!!! 🙂

Dear Dr. Lynch,
Thank you so much for this article, it brings peace to see a plan that is not so overwhelming!! My 19 year old daughter’s health problems led us to test for Mthfr, and it turns out that she, her twin, and her 3 year old sister are Homozygous 677t, and me and her 5 year old sister are Heterozygous 1298c-Heterzygous 677t. My daughter who has been having the health problems has been doing the gaps diet, and we have been learning a lot and plan to implement 1-16 on your list, my question is..would the multivitamins you recommended be a good place to start as far as a supplement for the mthfr for the little girls (5, and 3)? I plan on a slow plan of action, getting their gut health in order, and cleaning up their environment and diet, when should I start them on the vitamins you recommend? Their father has recently been tested for mthfr by the VA, and I am very curious to see his results, desert storm veteran, 100 percent disabled, migraines, nerve damage, narcolepsy, psoriasis etc…Thank you so much for your time, and your research! Our family will never be the same!! and that’s a good thing!!

I am 74 years old and just on a lark I had some genetic testing done only because it was part of a comprehensive assay my doctor had me do. He rarely tests for too much, but once in awhile he finds a “new Toy” , I got back the results of the MTHFR c677t and found I had T/T high risk.=, but the A1298C was normal. I never had a mis-carriage and seem to be in excellent health except for worrying about my health. So I got into the internet and went nuts. I found I could get every malady known to man. I really had to get a grip because I have tinnitus that gets worse when I get stressed. I started getting so upset as I spent hours reading scientific data I couldn’t understand except that this snp makes one susceptible to blood cancers, cardio vascular disease, psychiatric disorders and on and on. One genetic test for alzheimers came back that I had inherited a gene from each parent protects me from that disease. I do take care of myself and do a lot of what you recommend anyway as it makes sense. I am neurotic so maybe that is caused by the snp. I come from a long line of women who live well into their 90’s. My mother included who was never sick a day and always felt good. So where does all this come from? Once I read that you don’t have to be ruled by your genes I felt better. I now am trying to keep calm and live another 20 years ingood health!! JUDY

Eigenetics, Judy! Study the work of Bruce Lipton and set your mind to rest. A wise man once said, “Worry is interest paid in advance on a debt that never falls due.” And stress is today’s major cause of illness.
I am 85, in near perfect health after a life of no meds and no idea what my genetic makeup is. Ben Lynch’s 16 points above describe my protocol. My biggest secret is Structuring my Water with a simple device.
If you followed the above protocol what do you think might happen to your symptoms?
Remember your heritage is women who live to be over 90 and focus on that.

Hi Dr. Lynch –
I am currently awaiting the results of a 23andMe test on myself, but due to my medical history and that of my family, I strongly believe that not only do I have an active mutation, but that my 3 year old son does too. I would like to begin supplementing immediately and really like your children’s chewable multivitamin formulation (on the Seeking Health site), but am concerned as it is only recommended for 4 years and older. I’ve checked the RDAs for toddlers his age, but there aren’t a lot of resources out there and there doesn’t seem to be consensus amongst them. My little man is barely in the 5th percentile for his age in terms of weight and is closer to 3 than 4, so I’m wondering if it would be safe to give him a half dose of the Seeking Health children’s multivitamin?

Thanks so much for your research Ben. This is so exciting. Explaining to my patients was so time consuming and their eyes would glaze over when I mentioned biochemistry or genes that I did a simplified youtube. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=kop2c_89mc0

The second video ( released soon) mentions your great conferences.

Dr Ben,

I’ve been on your site constantly for several weeks since doing the 23andme test. I have noticed in several places you mention that other mutations can make things more difficult. I have the COMT, CBS, BHMT, NOS, and several others in heterozygous form, as well as heterozygous A1298. Do you have recommendations for people like myself? I’d like to follow your general protocol but a few comments you have made make me think maybe it won’t go as well for me since I have other mutations. Thanks for any advice.

It is interesting your son, Tasman, does not have the A1298C mutation. So it is possible to “escape” mutation? Perhaps my son is not mutated when my husband and I are?

Several of the things you mentioned seem expensive. I realize all go these things would be wonderful; however, besides eating a clean organic diet what would be the other critical changes would you suggest?
We are not financially able to make all of these changes at once. Thank you.

Reply to  Melanie

I would like to suggest starting with the ones that are free! Those that omit, not add, like:

Gluten Free Diet
Dairy Free Diet
Pure (Structured) water
No carpets in the house
Organic food (often nearly the same price as conventional!
Very limited processed foods
No artificial soaps, odors, perfumes
No cleaning solutions – just natural soaps, vinegar, baking soda
Limited pressboard in the home
Limited sugar intake
No soda
Highly active in sports and outdoors

Please notice this is most of the list!

I live on a small monthly SS check, am 85, in excellent heath,no meds–it can be done!

And what money you do have,spend on a high quality Multivitamin (Synergy Co., ORGANIXX.com and a probiotic.)

Very helpful article. Some of the things on the list seem very reasonable, however some are not an option at this time. We are putting wood floors in our children’s rooms but other areas of the house have carpet but a large portion has existing wood and tile. I guess constant airfilters may help?? I have several now that run non stop but they are not the ones you recommend, so I will invest in the things that you mentioned for air purification, but what kind of permanenet water filter system do you recommend? I am also going to look for chlorine filters for the showers.

Reply to  Dr. Ben Lynch

Thank you Dr Lynch- I will look for the Berkey water filer! What else can I do to help my children and myself- we all suffer with major health issues. I feel guilty I cannot remove all carpeting but at least it won’t be in their rooms, should I get an air filter for each room?? Also, what kind of filters would you recommend for the whole house air conditioning filter system? We also have a pool that is salt and chlorine, going to see how to just use the salt system.

Thank you

Hello I recently found out I am fro hetero c677t. I have been seeing a natural path doctor to treat the gut. However, I am losing TONS of hair and low in 5 amino acids and high in one. Not absorbing nutrients. Very low weight and cant put any on. Just curious what were thoughts were. Also, what do you recommend me taking for daily protocol.

Hi Ben, beautiful kids and I absolutely love your work and ethic. I am in Oz, very unwell, as in bedridden for best part of last 3 years unwell, married with two divine children. I’m being tested, finally, by a GP who specialises in tricky cases like mine and who is educated on genetic influences such as MTHFR. I am actually hoping for the double whammy faulty genes as that would at least give me something to work with.

As for your list of low-tox living tips – I don’t disagree with any but for some people at the beginning of their diagnosis, it would be overwhelming and expensive.

When my first baby was born, my fatigue began, and I began to phase out additives in our food, focussing on preservatives and colours, all our personal products were switched to natural, and I became pretty obsessed with that dirty word “toxin” and ultimately made my and my family’s life miserable by being ever alert and getting stressed in situations I couldn’t control – food served at other people’s houses, clothes made in China, car fumes from the roads, cakes at school fetes that were not gluten free, explaining to people that “no, we are not celiac, we are health conscious”, Nan’s perfume, Poppy’s cigarette smoke…I stressed and worried and made my own health worse. We spent thousands on organic bedding and mattresses – money we didn’t have. We were gluten free and dairy free, until recently when I made the decision that milk made from rice grown in Asian soils and then put in a Tetra pack can’t be good so we now drink organic Jersey milk in glass bottles, we eat organic khorasan bread, and buy organic vegetables because I’m too sick to grow them….and we do the best we can but there is a point for me, and I’m guessing others, when you have to let go and accept that the stress of avoiding all these things can sometimes outweigh the good you are trying to achieve. And yes, I would love to be able to buy a $8,000 infrared sauna, I’d love to be able to buy my own home and choose low toxic flooring and paint, I’d love to be able to live on a property away and breathe in fresh air and grow produce, but I can’t and many cant do these things “easily”.

My children are now 9 and 7 and I am more relaxed than when they were younger. I consider myself a self-educated (thanks google) expert on natural living but I don’t follow it 100% and not do I wan to because that makes me anal and difficult to live with. I would say the easiest and non-costly changes are avoiding the numbers in food and using natural personal products, then save for a water filter. Things may me cheaper and more readily available in the US. I never knew vit c in the bath water eliminates chlorine! That’s awesome. 🙂

Thanks for replying 🙂

Hi Ben – as it turns out, I am negative for both MTHFR mutations, which came as a huge surprise to me yesterday – perhaps that is hard to understand but I was hoping for at least a partial explanation for my condition.

I still have the issue of High RBC folate – I take no supps, eat very little greens and do not eat any fortified food.

I would be grateful if you could offer a possible reason for high RBC folate levels, when one does NOT have MTHFR mutations?

It seems all the focus is on MTHFR.

Kind regards

Thanks for sharing Dr. Lynch…so great to see!!

My two boys are hetero A1298C. I’ve known about my compound hetero mutations for 13 years now. Have 9 autoimmune diseases in my large extended family. My two boys and I have been doing 12 items on your list for years now.

My son 16, just tested positive ANA blood test. Ankles and feet became inflamed and swollen for 3 weeks; hospital 3 days. Thought it was cellulitis and was given antibiotics to treat. Long story short, now on Advil (7 days) for possible RA. It’s been 20 days since it began and one ankle still needs to return to normal.

He’s been off gluten, rice and sugar (gut yeast) for a year, but not off of dairy because no sensitivity was detected. The only dairy he eats is sometimes cheese and butter (organic). In your mind, should he just go off dairy even though nothing shows up on any testing? Is Ghee okay? Any other ideas would be very much appreciated.

What do you think of ionic foot baths? They are cheaper than the Infrared Sauna.
Would this help Tourettes as well… (my younger son has).

Thank you for helping all of us!

Hello! I don’t even know where to start so I’ll just get to the point. My son is 3 years old and has been diagnosed as a child who has extremely high functioning autism. I am and always will be a mother who is on a mission to help him improve and never set a limit on him just because of a diagnosis. In my research I came across the MTHFR gene mutation and had him tested that same week. He tested positive for Heterozygous C677t. I then had his folate and b12 levels checked which came back normal. My husband nor I have been tested to see which one of us is also a carrier ( my money is on him

Dr. Lynch thank you so much for the response. I will listen to the podcast as well as send it to my doctor.
However, I don’t think the rest of my question was uploaded. I was really curious about trying to conceive. Is there ways to help lower our chances of passing the MTHFR gene mutation to future children? I take a prenatal every morning but if folic acid is part of the problem then should I be taking something else? My husband and I have no been tested yet so at this point we do not know which of us or if both of us is a carrier yet.

Thank you again for the response!

Hi Dr. Lynch!

Thanks for your amazing site. I’m homo c677t and your protocol and Seeking Health supplements have helped me tremendously. In just two months I lowered my homocysteine from 11.9 to 6.9!

I recently discovered both my 20-month son and my husband are compound hetero like you and your son. I searched for a protocol on your site but didn’t see one. Any advice? Do I just treat the c677t or do I need to add supplements for the a1298c?

Also any recommendations for toddler-friendly supplements? Drops or chewables? Would I need to dose him less than an adult for mfolate and B12?

I do realize other snps play a role in how you treat all of this so I’ll be sure to take a look at the bigger picture before we start supplementing.

Thank you,

Hi Dr. Lynch,

I just found out I am homo C677T. Does this mean I would have gotten a gene from each of my parents or can the double be passed from one parent? I am in the process of purchasing a new home and am wondering what would be healthier for me,a newer home or an older home? I’m thinking the newer homes have more chemicals and the older may have lead?Any advice is much appreciated as I’m feeling beyond overwhelmed with all of this and we just put in a purchase offer!
Thanks so much!

Reply to  Mary

Hi Mary – Homozygous C677T means that you received one from each of your parents. Regarding home purchasing…this is a big question. You have to consider things like water quality, air quality, types of paint (e.g. low or high VOC), building materials, mold, rugs, furniture, etc. Questions regarding the home might be better answered by a contractor who specializes in green/sustainable buildings.

However, there are things you can do to reduce the overall body burden of toxic chemicals in the environment. Dr. Lynch has written 2 articles on this very topic with actionable steps you can take:

Body Burden – part 1: https://mthfr.net/toxic/2014/12/09/

Hi Dr. Lynch,

What a beautiful family! Thank you for sharing their and your story and for all your research and information! I was diagnosed with MTHFR (positive for one copy of the A1298c heterozygous) in April and I’m trying to sort through all the confusing information. My dr prescribed a methyfolate supplement (ProThera Active B12 Folate:http://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-727749-prothera-active-b12-folate-60-tablets) with 800 mcg and 1,000 B-12. I’m now wondering if this isn’t too much! Since on it, I’ve had loose stools and actually lower energy (likely from the digestive issues) and trouble sleeping. Do you agree this might be too much? Are there specific supplements (brands) you can recommend? Unfortunately, my dr does not know too much about MTHFR…but I’m thankful she had the hind site to test me. I also have a 14 year old son, whom I have not yet had tested, but he and I both have numerous food intolerances and he seems to always be very lethargic. Is there a specific methyl folate that could help him. We follow most of your protocol listed above; however we need to invest in a better water filtration system and unfortunately can’t afford right now to rip out all the carpets.
🙁 But I do have a good vacuum with hepa filter system and do not use any chemicals to clean our home. We eat pastured/wild and organic foods that we get from our local farmers….and drink homemade bone broth regularly. The only thing I’m most overwhelmed with are the supplements! Any guidance you can give is so very much appreciated!

Thank you again for all your efforts and blessings to your family….

Hi Amy – It sounds like you are being proactive with your food choices and making an effort to reduce chemical exposure. This is a great start! The supplement question can be tricky, as each individual is different. Please refer to the article about preventing methylfolate side effects. In general, the idea is to start low and go slow. Dr. Ben goes into more detail in this article.

Dr. Ben has created his own line of supplements, which you can find at http://www.seekinghealth.com.

You can start looking for a doctor who has completed some of Dr. Ben’s training in the physician directory.

I hope this helps you get started! All the best!

I have heterozygous A1298C & heterozygous C677T. I had a massive stroke when I was 16, & had thyroid problems (Hashimoto’s) in my 30s, & RA when I was 40s (but negative rheumatoid factor). I’ve been a vegetarian for 15 years, vegan for 5 years (though I don’t seem to have any food intolerances), taking supplements of Thorne B-complex, baby aspirin, flaxseed oil. I’ve checked my mercury level & it’s normal as well. I have a vagus nerve stimulator in in my body (to help with the stroke-resulted epilepsy & the cytokines inflammation). Although I take an anti-epilepsy drug, I’m not taking a rheumatoid drug because it has too many side effects & no benefits that I’ve seen. What now??

I have 1 copy of A1298C and am taking L-
Methylfolate, but I also have 4 CBS heterozygous, which I am very confused about how to address as I understand that the very recommendations for treating MTHFR are the things I should avoid when treating for CBS mutations; specifically, avoiding cruicifetous veggies and also high protien (which my blood work shows low protien levels). I have read your article about CBS mutation, but I can’t determine what to do in my case. Do you have any recommendation. I can’t seem to get any answers from the doctors and naturopaths locally.

Hi Dr. Ben, I have what 2 of your sons have – heterozygous A1298C & heterozygous C677T and all I was told was to take Folate and B12. I do practice what is on your list (other than have some carpeting in our home office) and I do eat some dairy (yogurt, eggs, cheese) and occasionally pasta and bagels. I find it difficult to recover from exercise (muscles are sore most of the time). Can’t find a doctor that knows anything about this. (I’m in Magnolia, TX)

My son Mason was tested for the MTHFR gene mutation. The lab results concluded he had one copy on the allel C677T. Says he is a carrier. Then further down it states the gene is inactive. I did not know this was possible. Am I reading this correctly? Can you have the mutation but it not be active therefore no symptoms? Is this mutation a gene that can be activated at any time? Thank you so much!
