Our mission

Our mission is to empower patients and practitioners to understand the key drivers of disease

We believe that if you can look at your genetic susceptibility and understand what influences that, you can have a significant influence on your health. We live in a society of chronically sick patients. Unfortunately, the medical system has yet to develop an arsenal for addressing chronic health conditions. They do acute care brilliantly, but chronically ill patients just aren’t getting better. If Medicare dictates that a doctor has only 15 minutes to spend with each patient, then how can we expect our doctors to properly understand that individual's issues? We spend 1.5 hours with every new patient and spend countless hours before each appointment analyzing blood tests, genetic tests, stool tests etc.

"At MTHFR Support, we believe in functional and integrative medicine...Functional medicine addresses the whole person, not the symptoms or the disease label. We consider the latest in genetic science, biochemistry, lifestyle, environment when trying to understand the factors affect your health and contribute to your susceptibility to disease."

At MTHFR Support, we believe in functional and integrative medicine. This means that by better understanding blood work and where you it should sit (rather than waiting until your blood work falls outside the reference ranges), you can be more effective in preventing disease. Functional medicine addresses the whole person, not the symptoms or the disease label that everyone is given. We consider the latest in genetic science, biochemistry, lifestyle, environment when trying to understand the factors affect your health and contribute to your susceptibility to disease.

By truly addressing the underlying causes of disease and using an individualistic approach we have greater success.

Through understanding the genetic susceptibility at an individual level, I have been able to achieve life changing results for my patients and for myself. There is nothing more rewarding than being able to help someone recover who has been sick for decades and has totally lost their quality of life. This is what we work for at MTHFR Support, and we look forward to sharing that work with you.  

Yours in health,

Carolyn Ledowsky
