I found out a couple years ago about a gene mutation that can cause depression. I can't believe how much mental illness could be related to this gene mutation. Here is a link to an article by Psychology Today that explains more: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/the-integrationist/201409/genetic-mutation-can-affect-mental-physical-health%3Famp
Crazy how many people are at risk for having this mutation and it's never talked about. A simple blood test would discover it, yet in my experience with psychiatrists they rarely consider diet and hormones let alone this gene mutation.
I kind of love the abbreviation for this gene mutation and seems appropriate for how much this mutation can affect your mental and physical health. It's like having me as a mutation is a motherf*cker 😅😂🤣
My health insurance is super expensive and it's an HSA so expensive to go the Dr. So I did not get tested I found the supplement for about $10 for a 2 month supply and figured why not try taking it, I've struggled with depression and digestive issues since I was a child, if this can help, what to I have to lose?
Here is the supplement I started taking.
Here is another supplement I started taking because the methylated version is supposed to be easier for the body to absorb. With the amount of exhaustion I was experiencing I needed a boost.
I have to say I notice a significant difference in my mood and thoughts. I am still dealing with anxiety and it's getting better, and the depression is gone, I am consistently able to see the bright side of things and pull myself out of the dark feelings depression can have. I feel hopeful and upbeat 95% of the time now. I have also changed my job which is huge and been more selective with who I spend time with.
I believe it's all connected and if you have a mutation isn't it great a $10 supplement can make a world of a difference? Anyone else have this gene or experience with this?
I am full on immersed in my healing and I am so grateful for the tools and environment to do so 💜🙏🏻💕
