More Medical Revelations

So in the last post I mentioned that I had MTHFR mutation. With the new appointment I just had we made it to the conclusion that have been given part of the mutation by one of my parents (the clotting factor of the mutation) and the other part (the anxiety part of the mutation) from my other parent. This mutation just means I am more sensitive to medications (something we already knew), I am more susceptible to infections, viruses and other toxins, and my body has a harder time getting rid of these types of pathogens. Also, my body has a hard time metabolizing things I put in my body (being food, medications). She told me it is super important that I am absolutely careful of everything I put in my body (food, medication, vaccines), on my body (lotions, soaps, detergents), and around my body( infections, pesticides, cleaners). It is really important that I eat cleanest food as possible and don't put anything processed or refined into my body (which is really difficult to think about). We talked a little bit about my weight issue, my doctor just saying that my gut has had way too much trauma and therefore will take longer to recover. The main thing to remember is not to do any type of fasting as my body freaks out and goes into starvation mode. I am to eat within 30 minutes of waking, which will be different as I am not use to doing this. Keto wasn't really mentioned but not sure if it's something to be done for the rest of my life. I will continue keto until I see her in 4 months. I really don't like the idea of doing keto for the rest of my life and may look into the anti-inflammation diet as an alternative, as I can eat fruit on that diet, something I miss. I am also going to my hematologist this week. My doctor told me that my blood is thick and sticky and its a clot waiting to happen. She wants me to do something about it before a clot arises. Get ahead of the game, which I am all for. I might go on a blood thinner for now on if the Hematologist agrees. My supplements were also changed. More of them now:

Fish oil 1x day
Vitamin D3 with K2 1x day
Baby asprin (2 now till I see hematologist)
Anti acid 2xday
Coq10 1x day
Probiotic 1x day
Vitamin C 2x day
Digestive enzyme 1x day
Methyl defense 2x day
Zofran as neede
Magnesium 1x day

It's crazy to think I need this many pills to make me 'healthy.'
Hope you all have a blessed week.
