MTHFR and Lupus AC: Should I Do The Fertility Cleanse?
by Amy Kannewurf
Hello! My name is Amy K. I have had 3 miscarriages and 1 ruptured ectopic pregnancy resulting in a removal of one tube. The doc said that the other tube is scarred. I have been looking into fertility cleanse but there are so many out there.
I do have MTHFR and lupus anticoagulant. What should I do? My husband and I have a 10 year old son. We would really like more children. Please Help. I am 38 years old.
Should I do a fertility cleanse and then the fertility wise cleanse later or should I do this one cleanse?Answer:
The fertility cleanse
is the most complete cleanse I know when it comes to help women prepare for pregnancy.
After the cleanse you can continue with women’s best friend and conception tea. If you are taking anticoagulants for lupus anticoagulant, I would not recommend the remedy called Women’s best friend which contains protease. You should ask your doctor if this is Ok for you to take.
The EndoWise protocol contains Wobenzym which will also be contraindicated with anticoagulants.
If your doctor tells you cannot take them, an alternative protocol to prepare for conception would be:
to support liver detoxification and toxin elimination.
to boost fertility, support regular ovulation cycles and maintain hormonal balance
to support healthy endometrial lining and healthy fallopian tubes.
For scarred fallopian tube, the remedy thiosinaminum can
really help eliminate scar tissue formation. This remedy should be taken in 6C potency 3 times a day for 4-6 months. Talk to a homeopath for more advice on homeopathic remedies.
Other important natural therapies for scar tissue formation in the fallopian tubes are self-fertility massage
with castor oil therapy
The MTHFR mutation is linked to high incidence of implantation failure, miscarriages, and birth defects like down’s syndrome, spina bifida, other neural tube defects, trisomy, higher incidences of autism. During pregnancy women with MTHFR mutation are at higher risk of stillbirth, placental abruption, preeclampsia, etc.
So, talk to your doctor about getting the proper treatment. You need to supplement with a prescription medication of high dosage of folate (5 mgs) and Vitamin B12 and B6.
These vitamins are what the body essentially needs to convert Homocysteine to Methionine.
The MTHFR gene provides instructions for making an enzyme called methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase. This enzyme plays a role in converting the amino acid homocysteine to methionine. Not all mutations are the same and give different problems.
Some women will also have to take low dosage aspirin (81 mgs) once a day to prevent blood clotting. Not all MTHFR mutations are the same so your doctor will have to assess which one you have and prescribe the correct protocol.
If you do get pregnant make sure to follow with your doctor as the protocol changes during pregnancy, end of pregnancy and post-partum.
