Are Your Genes Depressing You? - MTHFR & Your Mood with Coleen Walsh, MFA, MNT

This webinar is Part Two of MTHFR & Methylation with Coleen Walsh, MFA, MNT. Join us for an important review of the methylation cycle before we dive in and reveal how depletion of certain nutrients can affect our mood.  Many of these nutrients are processed within the Methylation cycle and defects in these pathways can lead to an imbalance.  We will discuss how the MTHFR enzyme affects the BH4/Neurotransmitter cycle and which B vitamins act as co-factors. In this webinar, Coleen Walsh will show that our genes are not our destiny and discuss how diet, lifestyle changes and supplementation can support our client’s emotional health.

You're invited to join us on Tue, Sep 1, 2015 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM PDT on Hawthorn's Holistic Health and Nutrition Webinar Series.


Coleen Walsh is a Master Nutrition Therapist, Functional Nutritionist and the owner of Harvesting Nutrition, LLC. She specializes in MTHFR & Methylation education and one on one client consultations incorporating genetics with nutrition and lifestyle practices. Coleen has been dubbed the “The Methyl Queen” by colleagues and is the winner of the 2014 NANP Impact Award for her research & training programs. She teaches and consults with MDs, NDs, L.Acs, DOs, Nutritionists and the general public. She offers online trainings for both the Practitioner and the general public “everyday mutant” on the basics of MTHFR and Methylation. Coleen is author of the forthcoming book, Thriving with MTHFR: A guide for the everyday mutant. Her passion is to educate and support others along their journey towards health with empathy and understanding.

"MTHFR & Methylation: The Big Picture - Part 1" with Coleen Walsh

Join Coleen Walsh on Tuesday, August 18th, 2015 at 4 PM PST / 7 PM EST as she presents Part One of MTHFR & Methylation: The Big Picture in order to broaden your understanding of MTHFR.  Almost half of the population has a defect in the MTHFR gene, and even more people have Methylation SNPs (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms or genetic mutations). The MTHFR SNP is at a key position in the Methylation Cycle and if not working properly, it can affect the whole pathway - creating symptoms and disease.  While methylation cycle abnormalities can predispose us to disease, epigenetic factors can help guide our recommendations and protocols.  This webinar  will present the basis for  understanding MTHFR, Methylation and Epigenetics and provide tips on diet and lifestyle practices to address these SNPs in this complex biochemical pathway as well as how and when to gently support detoxification.​

Join us early at 3:50 PM PST / 6:50 PM EST for our Food News You Can Use! segment featuring guest Mira Dessy of http://www.GrainsandMore.com.
