    Default CFS — The Methylation Cycle

    Thank you Mellowsong for the link!

    Dr. Sara Myhill, MB BS

    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a symptom, not a diagnosis, and the name of the game is to identify the underlying causes. In fatigue syndromes we don't see macro-pathology, we see micro-pathology - that is to say the problems are bio-chemical and occur at the molecular level.


    There are several cycles, which I now know to be centrally important in causing fatigue. All these cycles interlink with each other like Olympic rings and getting one cycle going will drive another. The important cycles which I know to be major players include blood sugar wobbles, allergy problems, sleep cycles, mitochondrial function, anti-oxidant status, the NO/OONO cycle, thyroid and adrenal hormones cycles and de-toxification. I am greatly indebted to Rich van Konynenburg for updating me on a new player which interlinks with many of the above, namely the methylation cycle.

    I'm confused right out of the gate because I don't understand what the Methylation Cycle is, and she assumes the reader knows so she never explains it. What's worse, I went online to find out and every discussion seems to take for granted that I have a background in organic chemistry. Maybe Reesacat or Mellowsong can explain it in terms that an eighth grader could understand?

    From Dr. Amy Yasko (works with autism)

    http://www.dramyyasko.com/our-unique...ylation-cycle/

    The Methylation Cycle is a biochemical pathway that manages or contributes to a wide range of crucial bodily functions, including:


    Detoxification
    Immune function
    Maintaining DNA
    Energy production
    Mood balancing
    Controlling inflammation


    All these processes help the body respond to environmental stressors, to detoxify, and to adapt and rebuild. That’s why lowered methylation function may contribute to many, major chronic conditions, including:


    Cardiovascular Disease
    Cancer
    Diabetes
    Adult neurological conditions
    Autism and other spectrum disorders
    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
    Alzheimer’s disease
    Miscarriages, fertility, and problems in pregnancy
    Allergies, immune system, and digestive problems
    Mood and psychiatric disorders
    Aging


    Methylation is involved in almost every bodily biochemical reaction, and occurs billions of times every second in our cells. That’s why figuring out where the Cycle can better perform its tasks contributes to health improvement, and reduce symptoms.

    Thank you, Reesacat. All of these cycles are a whole new course of study that I don't think I'm even in a position to attempt!
