About Me

Elissa Napier NGP, CNHC, CH

Hello,

My Name is Amy Napier and I started Living With MTHFR to share genetic information with the world. I have had an interest in genetics for many years, first researching in my spare time. I had been bed-ridden for 3 years and I had went to many doctors who diagnosed me with so many different problems, but I never got better. My family and I kept researching until we finally figured out what started my decline. I had genetic variants that caused detoxification and autoimmune issues. I soon grew a strong interest to learn more and I started on a protocol that was very strict, in 4 months I was working full time again. I then decided to go back to college so that I could become even more knowledgeable and continued to work full time as well. Over the years I have researched genetics daily. I have also worked with a Naturopathic Doctor and have been developing my own genetic database with my research findings. I have listed my extensive studies and credentials for anyone to see. I also started a genetic testing company called Genome It All that provides extensive information to the public. If you have already had genetic testing thru services such as 23andme or Ancestry, I can also do Interpretations. I love helping others, especially those who are hopeless and want their life back, because I have been there. If you decide to do a consultation with me, I am not like most practitioners. I spend around a week examining each clients genes, lifestyle, health concerns, and environment. I like to have all of the information I could possibly need so I can make the right choice so you will have the best outcome. I do suggest that you sign up when you are fully ready to commit to a detailed protocol that might restrict your diet, detox and require additional supplementation or testing. Please contact me in the form below with any questions.

You can also email me at livingwithmthfr@gmail.com

Below you will see my education background as well as some of the materials I have studied. I provide these materials for anyone who is interested in learning about health and genetics and would like to know how I gained my knowledge. This is a small basic list, as I research 100 hours per week, so it is constantly changing.
