Principles of Nutrition for Methylation Support

To promote methylation support through diet and lifestyle changes, many healthcare professionals recommend following a diet food plan which is nutritionally replete and rich in nutrients for DNA methylation status and activity, anti-inflammatory, low in Glycemic index, rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients as enzyme modulators, optimal in hydration, and supportive of detoxification.  

 

Moreover, to promote methylation support, a diet plan should avoid excess calories, folic acid-fortified foods, alcohol, minimize AGE formation, added sugars, foods from animals raised with the use of antibiotics and hormones, high-mercury content fish like tuna, king mackerel, swordfish, and shark as well as utilizing plastic food and beverage containers. According to a research study on diet and aging, calorie restriction can slow down or reverse the decline in age-related DNA methylation associated with diseases. As mentioned previously, alcohol consumption can tremendously affect DNA status and activity which may interfere with SAMe levels and may ultimately impact folate metabolism by inhibiting MTR and MAT enzymes, among other structures and functions.  

 

Furthermore, many doctors and functional medicine practitioners also recommend following intermittent fasting, a diet plan which cycles between fasting and non-fasting, alongside a low carbohydrate diet. According to several research studies, an extended nighttime fast can stimulate a decreased ketone production which may help decrease inflammation and protect the epigenome.  

 

Healthcare professionals can provide patients with nutrition advice and recommendations for lifestyle changes to help promote methylation support. While potential side effects of supplements have been discussed in previous articles, doctors and functional medicine practitioners can recommend supplementation alongside nutrition and lifestyle changes. Below, we will demonstrate a variety of superfoods, foods, and microbes which can be utilized to help promote DNA methylation status and activity.

A wide array of superfoods, foods, and microbes can help promote methylation support, alongside a diet food plan, supplementation, and intermittent fasting. The purpose of the following article is to discuss how nutrition and lifestyle modifications can help promote methylation support. It’s fundamental to understand how nutrition, fitness, lifestyle, supplements, and medicines, can improve DNA methylation and overall health and wellness. – Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C., C.C.S.T.

Additional Topic Discussion: Acute Back Pain

 

Back pain is one of the most prevalent causes of disability and missed days at work worldwide. Back pain attributes to the second most common reason for doctor office visits, outnumbered only by upper-respiratory infections. Approximately 80 percent of the population will experience back pain at least once throughout their life. Your spine is a complex structure made up of bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles, among other soft tissues. Injuries and/or aggravated conditions, such as herniated discs, can eventually lead to symptoms of back pain. Sports injuries or automobile accident injuries are often the most frequent cause of back pain, however, sometimes the simplest of movements can have painful results. Fortunately, alternative treatment options, such as chiropractic care, can help ease back pain through the use of spinal adjustments and manual manipulations, ultimately improving pain relief.
