When a practitioner makes the diagnosis of Lyme Disease, the standard practice is to put you on antibiotics.
This may help some of you.
If you are lucky and the infection is recent, you may get improvement right away and walk away.
If you are less lucky, the antibiotics go on longer, and you do less well with them.
If you are not lucky at all, the antibiotics go on and on and on and on… and so does the Lyme Disease.
Many people with chronic illness are MTHFR+. Your practitioner tells you to test for MTHFR and you do it. If it comes back positive, he gives you immoderate doses of methyl donors. This may help or it may put you on the methyl group roller coaster, and flat out make you worse.
So by now, the villi in your gastrointestinal tract have been reduced to something that looks like the surface of the moon. You are not absorbing amino acids: they take enzymes to absorb.
Enzymes are produced by the villi and the brush border in your GI tract, but they have all been destroyed by over administration of antibiotics. And the methyl groups in your body have been totally unbalanced by immoderate, undiscriminating administration. This is a mess.
This about this: think about optimizing the function of your immune system to get rid of the Lyme by optimizing the function of the pathway that makes methyl groups. Do not just pound yourself with antibiotics and methyl donors. Doesn’t this sound like a more logical approach?
I wrote about this and other issues in the free methyl group e book you can find on my web site at www.NancyMullanMD.com. It explains why methyl groups are so important for immune function and what you need to do to help your body produce them.
I have warned you many times about the problems involved with the current treatments for Lyme and chronic illness.
Read before you start pounding your GI tract with antibiotics and indiscriminately take methyl donors. You really can end up in worse shape.
At least come to understand the issues and concerns surrounding these statements. You could save yourself some time and heartache. Read the e book and then come on the Open Forum call on Tuesday night. Ask me questions about this. I’ll explain the issues very carefully.
My Tuesday evening calls are ongoing through December 15th. They happen every week with the exception of the week of Thanksgiving.
There is no charge to come to the call. It is a free forum where you can ask your questions. It’s a great way to clear up confusion, overcome the obstacles you may be having, and get on the path to wellness.

So excellent! I literally learn something on every single call and I get clarification on things that have been lingering on my mind…
You are giving people a huge gift by empowering them…It’s about helping the patient become their own healer by taking them to a higher level of consciousness…
Thank you so much Dr. Mullan. Thank you so, so much for everything you do.
Wow! I have to tell you, this was such an uplifting call. It’s so nice to hear good news especially about a child. Anxiety, OCD and a host of other mental/psychiatric symptoms have been a huge hurdle for me. So to hear this story of all those awful symptoms totally going away is such a bright light for me!!!!
This is brilliant. I hope a lot of people not doing methylation work will see this. I wish I’d seen this before I started doing daily injections of B12 and folic acid and ended up in a crisis. Maybe had I known to have the genetic methylation stuff going, the IV therapies I did that really helped would not have been so traumatic…
JOIN US ON TUESDAY NIGHT!
