    Thanks, Lynnie, I’ve signed up.

    Lyme/RA; AP 4/2008 off and on to 3/2010; past use of quinolones may be the cause of my current problems, (including wheelchair use); all supplements (which can aggravate the condition) were discontinued on 10/14/2012. Am now treating for the homozygous MTHFR 1298 mutation. Off of all pain meds since Spring '14 (was on them for years--doctor is amazed--me too). Back on pain med 1/2017. Reinfected? Frozen shoulder?

    I really enjoyed the webinar tonight. I do plan on listening to the next one! I sure wish we did not have it, but we do. I feel that if Lyme had not gotten involved I would still be my normal self. Lyme was the catalyst for my physical breakdown. I really wonder where this will take me. Acceptance is a good thing. I am getting there. I have two grandmothers with a 100 year lifespan. No RA or autoimmunity besides low thyroid in one. I wonder if they had gotten Lyme bacteria would they have done so well. Sometimes I wish I had stayed in the south!

    I also enjoyed the webinar. The presenter, Coleen Walsh, described the MTHFR mutation in simple terms.

    1. MTHFR is involved in the workings of the Methylation Cycle, which is involved in detoxification, the immune function, energy production, mood balancing, and controlling inflammation;
    2. The Methylation Cycle helps to break down histamine;
    3. When not working properly, it interferes with your ability to process nutrients leading to nutrient deficiencies.

    Testing for this mutation is recommended if you have problems with cardiovascular, fertility (miscarriages, birth defects, etc.), autoimmune, mood, and thyroid.

    Part 2 will be presented on September 1

    Glad both of you got something out of it (time of webinar not feasible for my part of the world!). Hope Part 2 is equally worth it.

    Hi Lynnie–

    They do archive their webinars and you can hear/see it there (Hawthorn University) and others of interest online.

    Latest one up is 4 August so think it takes a little while. I do search the archives from time to time and have found a few interesting things.
