Ben Lynch, M.D., is scheduled to speak at The Thyroid Summit, an online event which begins June 2 and runs through June 9. His presentation will be titled "Folic Acid, Methylation and the Connection to Low Thyroid."
According to his website, Lynch, who left the University of Washington for a year to backpack through the South Pacific and Southeast Asia, focuses on the MTHFR gene mutation, which he says "is a highly significant public health problem that is completely ignored."
"[M]illions are suffering from pulmonary embolisms, addictions, fibromyalgia, miscarriages, schizophrenia, severe depression, cancer and autism to name a few," Lynch says.
"What do these conditions have in common?" he asks.
"They all may be linked to a MTHFR gene mutation in the individual expressing these symptoms and health conditions."
"If we can prevent the turning on of the MTHFR gene mutation in unborn infants, how huge would that be? MASSIVE.
"If we can reduce mental illness, addictions, cancer and cardiovascular disease related deaths, how huge would that be? MASSIVE," he says. "If we can get MTHFR mutations on the map and get standardized medicine to begin screening for it, we can truly make a difference. The lab test to determine which MTHFR mutations are present is only about $150.00. That is nothing."

Continuing, Lynch adds: "With all that said, you can see why I have created MTHFR.net.
"I encourage you -- highly encourage you -- to help me gather as much information as possible aboutgene mutations and get it out there.
"If you have access to media, and you resonate with my purpose of MTHFR.net, please do get in touch with me," he writes. "I'm tired of treating disease. I want to prevent it."
"This doesn't mean I am going to ignore helping the many who have MTHFR gene mutations -- especially of the C677T or the A1298C or worse -- both," Lynch added. "I am constantly in research looking for ways to improve the lives and health of all those with MTHFR mutations -- no matter how minor and no matter how severe.
"I have a solid understanding of MTHFR mutations and expanding that knowledge on a weekly basis."

These are the subjects Lynch will cover:
Learn about the most important B vitamin to help thyroid and adrenal dysfunction.
Why you should avoid folic acid and take natural folate supplements.
Taking natural 'Methyl' folate eases depression.
Detoxification improves when you improve methylation with B vitamins.
Why you may want to increase digestive acid, rather than reduce it.
More than half of the population is suffering fromproblems, according to the event website. The summit will feature some 30 presentations about common medical problems tied to thyroid disease. In them, you'll learn why the thyroid gland is the master gland in your body -- every cell depends on thyroid hormone to function optimally.
If you're not aware of a thyroid problem, you could develop psychological, cardiovascular and neurological disorders. Medications for a variety of symptoms will never solve the problem, but optimizing your thyroid hormone with vitamins, minerals, dietary changes and the right medications can.
This summit will provide you with all the information you need to optimize thyroid function and stop the suffering once and for all:
--Learn why conventional medicine misses the diagnosis.
--Find out which thyroid tests will properly evaluate thyroid function.
--Educate yourself and learn how to speak with your medical professionals.
--Access safe and effective natural remedies from over 30 world-leading authorities.
