About Amy and Remote Health Coaching

Hello everyone!  I’m Amy.

Meet Amy – health-geek extraordinaire. Remote health coaching for MTHFR, gallbladder sludge, weight loss and so much more!

I have a passion for helping people take charge of their health.  That could be in a personal appointment with me for remote health coaching, but more often it’s through writing, speaking, or teaching.  I feel like the most effective way to actually contribute to this arena is to teach you to be your best caretaker. It’s a lot like teaching a man to fish – I want you to not need me or anyone else, but to be able to make the best health decisions on your own. If you’re new to this, you might have some questions – here’s a FAQ page for new clients.

The goal is  to find the simplest way to impact your health most directly. That could be eliminating a food sensitivity, approaching sleep in a different way, drinking more water, addressing a genetic mutation, using a homeopathic remedy or finding ways to make more time for you in your life.  It could be a supplement too, but I always try to minimize those. Remote health coaching isn’t for everyone – like everything else, it’s a commitment to your health and it’s important for you to really consider whether or not you’re ready. If you’re willing to put in the effort, then so am I.

Part of my calling is to teach – students learning to become practitioners, practitioners learning to practice better and people wanting to learn more about an aspect of their health. I love the sharing of knowledge and it is a joy to empower people to change their lives or livelihoods. I teach also through the blog, books, articles, lectures, and retreats.

Here’s What My Life Looks Like:

As of this moment, I am gratefully enjoying the wonder of my daughter, Sabrina. I have no idea what I have done in my life that is good enough to deserve her, but I will always be thankful for both her and my husband Shaun. We have the habit of moving around a fair bit, and recent homes have included the British Virgin Islands, Austin, Vancouver, Calgary and now Ottawa.

The good thing about taking appointments over phone or skype is that it doesn’t matter where I am or where you are. We can always make the time. I try to schedule appointments  to minimize child-related interruption, but please understand that with a kiddo, that can be unpredictable. My family is a priority for me, just like health, and I hope you will understand and value that if you choose to work with me. I’ll be flexible for you, and I ask that you’re a little flexible with me if my kiddo is having a bad day.

About Amy As a Human:

I am a geek for science with a bit of tree-hugger and a bit of glitter throw in. I am interested in sustainable living, environmental protection, local farming, the slow foods movement and just about everything that lives, grows, moos, squeaks, whinnies or runs around. I love hiking, walking, camping, gardening, reading, and backyard campfires. Also love all sorts of geekery, art, and music and am currently writing books for young adults, which are hopefully publication-worthy. I also happen to be an MTHFR mutant (compound heterozygous) and an avid health junkie. Say hi anytime!

    Hi ,
    I have mutant genes & really need your help
    I would really like to do phone or Skype but I can’t get your website to work. I tried for oct 30th at 3:00 pm. But I click on 3 & it does nothing. I need your help desperately to heal me from this. I have tried to figure this out & have no clue & for the last yr I have been depressed & anxiety & I just want to feel like my old self again. ( happy & looking forward to the future. ). Which I am not for some reason
    For the last 12 months.

    Hi Amy,
    Just so happy to find your site this morning. My mom and I have the MTHFR SNP and the information you wrote about it is so helpful and easier to understand than other things I’ve read. You sound like an amazing person and I wish I could get to know you in person. I’ve been a health coach for 11 years, but I still have a day job. I admire the live you have created for yourself.
    Best regards,

      I’m glad to meet you too! And I’m so glad you’re finding this info helpful. Let me know if there is anything you want to know about in greater detail. 🙂 And awesome that you’re health-coaching. I think once you get your head around it in your life, you’ll be able to help a lot of your clients with the MTHFR stuff too. It’s a huge need out there. Thanks for reading!

    I’m new to the MTHFR world as I’ve recently started birth control and found that I’m having serious issues. I have the C677T mutation and I believe it’s causing these problems. I’ve had abnormally long periods (2 weeks-20 days). I will be seeing my doctor for the 6th time since August… anything I should ask about or get blood work for? I’m also going to stop taking this. It’s making me sick. Any advice?

      Hi MJ,
      Birth control is really difficult for a lot of MTHFR folks. The biggest problem is that metabolizing birth control pills uses a lot of folate, which is typically in shorter supply for us. Outside of that, birth control can increase the risk of blood clots in women and that effect might be more pronounced in MTHFR mutation folks because we tend to clot a bit more easily anyway. All in all it isn’t often a great fit. If you really need the convenience of birth control pills then here’s a link to a full article. Sometimes it seems like the progesterone only pills do better with MTHFR mutation, but some mutants (myself included) never could tolerate birth control.

    Hello Dr. Neuzil,
    I would like to seek permission to use the picture depicting ‘Women and the Moon’ that I found on your blogpost (http://dramyneuzil.com/seed-cycling-for-hormone-balance-gentle-ways-to-restore-normal/) for a book that I will be self-publishing.
    If this picture is your original creation, kindly email me so I may provide more details as necessary. If not, please let me know whom I may contact to seek the permission.
    Thank you!

    You recommend getting a complete genetic analysis to determine methylation status.
    I have come across another website by a health professional which talks about methylation status. They recommend to get a measure of whole blood histamine level to determine functional methylation in the body. There is an inverse correlation (relationship) according to this website. A low blood histamine level means one is overmethylated, and vice versa.
    Are you familiar with this?
    They also say that folate supplementation can be risky even if one has the mutation. What do you say to this?

    1. amyneuzil Post author

      Hi Frances,
      Histamine status can be an indication of some types of methylation, but I’ve seen lots of clients whose histamine is totally normal but who experience relief of other symptoms with methylated B vitamins so I think it’s an imperfect measure of functional methylation. Also homocysteine levels, the way I understand it, are more highly correlated with the A1298C gene, as opposed to the C677T. And honestly any supplementation can be risky simply because we’re adding chemicals to the body that it may or may not need and we’re in a way guessing or assuming about the need, if that makes sense. I have not seen anything published about actual long-term harm caused by folate, but there is plenty of research about actual harm caused by folic acid. So yes, there is always risk and it really no supplements should be taken unless there is good reason.
