    I am bed-ridden with severe me/cfs. Have been doing rich van K's meth protocol abt 9 mths. Now newly diagnosed with homozygous C677t. I have read that (with this gene mutation) i should avoid folic acid because it blocks uptake of methylfolate. But the neurological health formula i take as part of protocol contains folic acid.
    1) Should i stop taking it?
    2) How important is it to stop ingesting folic acid?
    3) It seems x difficult to find a multivit without folic acid!

    I'm so sorry you suffer so much.

    Rich VanK is awesome, and he does post here and answers questions directly when he has time/sees them.

    You may want to try posting to him at our FM/CFS board here:

    I hope you find answers and relief soon.
