34:14 – How do you test for MTHFR? What are the warning signs that I should be tested?
38:28 – What does a sample MTHFR lab test look like? Why just test with MTHFR? Why not just treat with methylfolate?

1:18:18 – So what is the good news? Is there good news? Hint – yes!
If you’ve wondered why folic acid is not nearly as good as methylfolate, then prepare to be stunned by the evidence brought forth in this 80 minute video presentation by Dr Lynch, an expert on the MTHFR defect and methylation.
“Excellent information Dr Lynch – thanks for making this available to all. I know how hard you worked to research, learn and prepare these materials to share. You truly are a beacon of light in the world of MTHFR.”Sacha Elliot
This video gave me a very thorough background review and understanding of MTHFR defects. If you want to know more about it or you have it, this video is a MUST SEE! My son has the 1298c mutation and some CBS mutations as well, so I would love a sequel that goes into that combination a bit more. Thanks Dr. Lynch for all your help. I look forward to learning more from you!Suzanne
