Dr martin Fried Genetic testing

Dr martin Fried’s genetic testing can help treat the following conditions

autoimmune diseases-Crohn’s Colitis, celiac, mutliple sclerosis, hashimoto’s, rheumatoid arthritis, pernicious anemia, lupus, collagen vascular disease, and diabetes

MTHFR- folate metabolisms problems leading to depression, anxiety, panic attacks, attention defecit, memory problems, PTSD, IBS, irritable bowel, bipolar, schizophrenia, and many other psychiatric conditions such as binge eating, anorexia, bulimia, food eating concerns. methyltetrahydrofolate supplementation is addressed

Infections as Lyme. Bartonella, Mycoplasma, Rickettsia, Babesia, and other immune system conditions.

Detoxification of drugs, including prozac, effexor, lexapro, clonepin, xanax, Detoxification of heavy metals and mold, glutathione and cytochrome P450 is addressed as well as transulfuration pathways, CBS, pesticides

Overweight, Obesity, nutritional conditions such as food allelrgies, histamine release, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, SIBO, leaky gut, stretch marks, GERD, gastroesophageal reflux

Vitamins and mineral excess and deficiencies such as folate, B12, B6, biotin, selenium, zinc, calcium and vitamin D. Supplementation is also addressed

Gut issues such as bloating, diarrhea, constipation, gastroparesis, yeast overgrowth, fungal conditions, parasites,

Allergies and immunological conditions such as eosinophilic gastroenteritis, food allergies, IgA deficiency, gluten sensitivity, inflammatory bowel disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Milk Protein Allergies

Brain Chemistry- Serotonin, Dopamine, Norepinephrine, GABA, are evaluated along with Monoamine oxidase, MAO, Serotonin receptors and serotonin carrier proteins, SSRI, lithium, prozac, effexor, lexapro and other medications can be determined if they are appropriate for you based on DNA testing.

Heart disease, blood clots, homocysteine levels are measured

Genetic and DNA testing by Dr Martin Fried

Dr Fried performs services on a variety of conditions all of which can be treated individually by DNA testing. Services include Panic attacks, anxiety, depression, bipolar, obesity, overweight, autoimmune conditions as Crohn’s, colitis, celiac, thyroid, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis. He also treats, Lyme, Bartonella, Mycoplasma infections as well as allergies, histamine problems, attention deficit, autism, anorexia, bulimia, food eating issues, immune system problems, SIBO, bloating, constipation, diarrhea,bloating, irritable bowel, yeast overgrowth, chronic fatigue, brain fog, memory problems, concentration problems, substance abuse and addictions.

Food as medicine

Can food be used to lessen someone’s Obsessive compulsive behavior. What about those with Attention and focusing problems. Those with attention problems appear to be under methylators. They need methyl groups for their metabolism to work. Methyl groups can be found in coffee, tea and chocolate ( methylxanthines). These methyl groups when given to someone with attention and focus problems, helps them to focus because their brain is able to make the chemicals they need to function.

Drinking coffee slowly throughout the day or drinking a caffeine containing drink slowly throughout the day could less or even eliminate the need for ritalin, stratera and concerta and other medications used to treat attention and focusing conditions. There may also be less side effects to these natural forms of treatment compared to pharmaceuticals.

Ethyl to Methyl, Come In Methyl

Remember those Lucy episodes- Loved Ethyl

Now to more serious business- the business of Methylation- those  little carbon and three hydrogen groups that are responsible for

New cell synthesis and repair of all cells and tissues which require DNA to build themselves,for example, bone marrow, red cells, white cells, and platelets and nerve tissues.

With problems in folic acid metabolism and methylation it is harder to overcome damage from stress on tissue because you may not produce the amount of DNA you need to do the repair.

This methylation issue is also related to heart disease and energy production as seen in chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia.

Methylation is also associated with mood problems due to poor dopamine production- as seen in attention problems and other mood issues.

The methylation cycle can be investigated by a physician once certain DNA tests are ordered and it may help solve or treat autoimmune conditions, allergic reactions, environmental toxin and even aging.

Dopamine, Serotonin, Norepinephrine and mood

Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine whereby the digestive system and its disorders are studied. Many conditions such as Crohn’s, colitis, celiac, are related to autoimmune system activation in which a leaky gut may play a role.  Other conditions such as Attention defecit, bipolar, depression, autism, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, anxiety, POTS and chronic lyme may be related to chemical metabolisms problems which may be a part of enzyme defects in the methyl cycle, folic cycle, methionine cycle, detox cycle- which occurs in numerous cells throughout the body.
Defects in certain enzymes lead to neurotransmitter problems of dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin- seen in panic attacks, anxiety, attention defecit hyperactivity, parkinson,s ( a dopamine problem), Alzheimer’s ( a  possible detoxification problem in the brain associated with metals)
Chronic lyme and its associated coinfections- may be continuous activation of the immune system by live infection, chemicals elicited as a result of this infection may worsen the condition and even perpetuate the symptoms. Having a biochemical understanding of the enzymes involved – which is unique to each individual might help tailor a treatment that is for that person based on their  genes, dna, enzymes and their own response to the conditions which initiated their illness. This premise is true for other autoimmune diseases such as celiac, crohn’s colitis, multiple sclerosis, autoimmune thyroid disease

mthfr DEFECTS AND THE EFFICIENCY OF THE ENZYME

1298 AND 677 ENZYME DEFECTS AND DECREASED mthfr ENZYME EFFICIENCY

this ILNK ABOVE EXPALINS WHY PEOPLE WITH mthfr DEFECTS HAVE PROBLEMS CONVERTING folic acid to active 5-L-methryfolate. THe reduced enzyme activity as a result of these gene mutations affects the whole methylation and folic acid cycle. Its an explanation for abortions( not enough methylfolate and possible neural tube defects). Its a consideration in affecting the immune system,. It plays a role in neurotransmitter dopamine, serotonin and neurepinephrine chemicals in patients with lyme, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, anxiety, panic, bipolar, depression. In its association with immune system and detoxification, it plays a role in alzheimers, parkinsons, and many other degernerative diseases such as heart attack risk , stroke, blood clots ( which are related to homocysteine levels, methionine and b12 and folic acid)
