Amy + Coaching

I’m Amy.

I want to help you take charge of your health. That could be through remote health coaching, but more often it’s through classes, the blog, or the podcast.

The best thing I can ever do for you is to help you understand your own health. It’s a lot like teaching a man to fish – I want you  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.

Let’s find the simplest way to impact your health.

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.

About Me:

I’ve been an N.D. since 2003, taught at both the masters and doctoral level, hosted radio, led continuing medical education seminars and run classes for weight loss, MTHFR mutations, hormone balance and bunches of other topics.

I’m a mom, wife, and a nerd for science with a bit of tree-hugger and a bit of glitter thrown in. I get into all sorts of geekery like making my own soap and writing books for teens and young adults. 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,

      Hi Mia,
      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,

    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.

        Hi Amy,
        Could you answer one question for me, please?
        When it is better to take Bile salts to increase bile production:
        1) during meal?
        2) between meals?
        How much do you charge for 15 min consultation?
        Thank you,

        1. amyneuzil Post author

          Hi Nadine,
          Bile salts can be a bit irritating to the digestive tract and I find it easiest to take them in the middle of a heavy meal (especially one with decent fat content). Between meals usually causes too many symptoms. And the only 15 minute consults I do are free as a meet and greet to see if we’re a good fit to work together (or occasionally if an established client has a really focused question they want to talk through). Thanks so much for being here!
