EP 03: How Biochemistry and Genes Impact Your Brain with Dr. Albert Mensah, MD, BCIP
Play • 58 min

Our stories are extremely powerful and contain genetic, epigenetic, and transgenerational narratives.


Educating yourself with the facts surrounding accurate testing and treatment provides a powerful pathway to healing the brain and body.


In my last episode, I discussed how nutrient deficiencies and overloads impact the brain and body.


In today's episode, I'm speaking with Dr. Albert Mensah about genetics, epigenetics, the controversial MTHFR test, as well as misconceptions and dangers about the different forms of folic acid and their impact on the in utero environment.


Dr. Mensah is a world-renowned leader and teacher in methylation disorders. He is the co-founder of Mensah Medical in Warrenville, Illinois, a clinic that specializes in the treatment of biochemical imbalances and the cognitive and physical disorders caused by those imbalances. Since 2005 Dr. Mensah has treated over 30,000 patients using all-natural, non-pharmaceutical targeted nutrient therapy.


His practice focuses on the management and treatment of cognitive disorders such as autism, behavior and learning disorders, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, anxiety syndromes, childhood and adult schizophrenia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, as well as family medicine.


Dr. Mensah regularly presents at international conferences, trains physicians in advanced nutrient therapy techniques, and is board certified in integrative pediatrics by the American Association of Integrative Medicine.


Listen to the full episode to hear:

  • The difference between genetics, epigenetics, and transgenerational epigenetic inheritance
  • The dangers of folic acid beyond the first trimester of pregnancy and its impact on the in utero environment (including the rise in autism, depression, ADHD, OCD, and anxiety disorders)
  • MTHFR genetic testing flaws and the truth about how methylfolate actually works in the body
  • The importance of designing a diet based on your unique biochemistry
