Podcast #305: MTHFR Made Easy!

lynch banner

Guest: Dr. Ben Lynch

It finally happened.

One of the most suggested guest EVER — Dr. Ben Lynch — made his first appearance on the podcast this week. And he crushed it!

The big reason why he hadn’t been on the show before was the fact that I had no idea what MTHFR was. I had seen and heard it come up before, but never took the time to study it.

The general consensus on the MTHFR topic is that it’s too complex for the lay person to understand. So I made it my personal mission to help Dr. Lynch break it down in a way that everyone could understand. 

I think we did a darn good job, too!

Here are Katey the Assistant’s show notes:

5:35 – Folate: the backbone of numerous key reactions in your body.

7:54 – Sean tries to say “methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase”. :)

8:27 – A MTHFR football analogy to help you get it.

11:20 – You need THIS for activated folate.

12:51 – MTHFR gene mutation: who, what and why.

14:45 – How Dr. Lynch found out about his own MTHFR gene mutation.

15:42 – Hold up! A quick MTHFR review.

Podcast #301:
Can Confidence be Learned?

JordanHarbinger

Guest: Jordan Harbinger

Anything can be learned.

Seriously, I’ll sit here at my laptop reading instructional manuals and watching how-to videos on YouTube until I get something figured out.

I firmly believe that if I wanted to learn quantum physics there’s nothing that could stop me but my own willingness to spend the time taking in the information and actually doing it.

But what about confidence?

Is becoming a more confident, charismatic person something you can learn?

Is there a set of instructions (or YouTube videos) that can show you how to make amazing first impressions, win more friends, and earn the respect of your peers and employers.

Well, yes and no.

As a matter of fact, it was a book about becoming more confident and “picking up girls” that actually inspired me to start Underground Wellness.

If it were not for that spark to improve my “inner game”, you and I wouldn’t know each other.

You’ll learn all about it in today’s podcast episode with Jordan Harbinger, founder of The Art of Charm.

Jordan and I discuss:

* How to ask your boss for a raise … and get it!
* Networking tips for introverts (like me)
* Something every business needs to make a difference.
* A ton more!

Sorry, no show notes today. We’re super busy over here putting the finishing touches on The Digestions Sessions. It’s almost time!

Enjoy the show.

Sean
