Working to Change the Diagnosis on Misdiagnosis

We are here to educate, inform & facilitate improved patient incomes & increase knowledge of the MTHFR genetic mutations within the medical community

Misdiagnosis is the 3rd leading cause of death in the U.S. We are here to change that through education about the underline cause of illness – MTHFR genetic mutations – and provide diagnostics & health/nutritional coaching to low-income families experiencing un- or under-diagnosed chronic illness.

Donor Appeal: Help with the Heal & Heal

Your donation will help us achieve our Values/Growth Pillars.

First Do No Harm – Objective: Educate MDs & health care executives on how to improve patient outcomes through re-education programs and protocols focused on healing that incorporates body, mind and soul.

Create & Sustain – Objective: Establish a community health center with online resources and satellite locations across metro Detroit to be able to assess and show low-income chronically ill patients how-to heal. Target demographics: pediatric with autism and genetic disorders, Hispanics/Latinos, pregnant mothers and patients with early onset dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease.

Partners in Pursuit – Objective: Partner with foundations of health systems, health departments, community clinics, local Hispanic nonprofits, and larger nonprofits with larger reaches, budgets and service pillars to help with our mission and further allowing them reach their community service goals and priorities.


“Most of my clients have an autoimmune condition, or are immunocompromised,” said Executive Director Anthony Beven, also Principal Practitioner, Detox Day Spa Nutritional Coaching & CEO, DetoxRx: The Chronic Illness Protocol, which is advancing patient outcomes for MDs & hospitals. “I’ve tested about 200 clients, and only two did not have this mutation. Most MDs dismiss my clients concerns about the MTHFR gene, but my hypothesis is that all chronically illness sufferers have one or more mutation with this gene group, and there’s more genes involved than C677T and A1298C. This genetic testing needs to be part of standard testing for all patients, because it can save lives. People are dying every single day, and their families and the medical community don’t know why. This is the answer.”

Beven is a live blood analyst and nutritionist, specializing in nutritional detox and cellular regeneration. He’s registered with the National Provider Index as a homeopath, naturopath and health educator. Beven, who dealt with back-to-back HIV and cancer diagnosis in 2016, is also 5/6 gene impacted mutation MTHFR sufferer. He said chronic illness/MTHFR mutations have are part of his ancestral DNA.

Beven added, “With these diagnoses that are being given, and there’s 70,000 documented medical diagnoses, according to the World Health Organization, we are still only treating symptoms of the symptoms of the true cause — MTHFR genetic mutations. We need to be addressing things on the cellular-level.”

Six in ten Americans live with at least one chronic disease, like heart disease and stroke, cancer, or diabetes, according to the CDC. Beven said in a review of his clients reports, he has discovered that MTHFR mutations result in the following:

  • Mitochondrial dysfunction – The classic role of mitochondria is oxidative phosphorylation, which generates ATP by utilizing the energy released during the oxidation of the food we eat.
  • Enzyme & mineral deficiency – There are three main groupings of these inside of the body: digestive, proteolytic/anti-inflammatory and methyl/detox enzymes. Enzymes, along with mineral cofactors, are required for the start of every biochemical process inside of the body. The accessory organs (the liver, galls bladder and pancreas) are inflammation, so enzymes aren’t being produced much at all. These organs are responsible for enzyme production, storage, functionality and release. Most chronically sick people are at about 40-60 enzyme functionality, depending on if they are a double mutation on both MTHFR alleles — C677T and A1298C. C677t is critical for metabolizing one form of B vitamin, folate, into another. A1298C is part of the process that converts homocysteine into methionine, an important building block for many proteins. Homocysteine is an amino acid. Vitamins B12, B6 and folate break down homocysteine to create other chemicals your body needs. MTHFR A1298C mutations are tied to higher levels of fibromyalgia, IBS, fatigue, chronic pain, schizophrenia, and mood-related problems.
  • Chronic inflammation – This is tied to the body not having the genetic capable to first identify and send stress signals when inflammation happens or send assistance to these areas to diffuse inflammation. WBCs release a proteolytic enzyme called Leukocyte esterase. Other examples of proteolytic enzymes include bromelain, chymotrypsin, ficin, papain, serrapeptase, and trypsin.
  • Oxidative stress – This is the event that occurs when our RBCs are damaged and/or destroyed by free radicals, such as Candida/fungal overgrowth and parasites, and cell debris, like heavy metals and uric acid. This is resulting from mitochondrial dysfunction. The mitochondria are also responsible for cell protection, among other important tasks inside the cell and for the benefit of the cell.

“In addition to the cellular-level dysfunctions, these reports also show that there are impacted genes or complete deletions within the inflammation gene group responsible for stress signals and dispatching white blood cells to areas of inflammation to release proteolytic enzymes to diffuse inflammation. A gene that plays a critical role in helping the liver clean the blood is being impacted. My clients are at 40-60 enzyme functionality, extremely mineral deficient, and are at very high susceptibility to breast, bladder and digestive cancers, as well as coronary artery disease,” Beven said”

Mission: To Change the Diagnosis on Misdiagnosis

To improve patient outcomes and educate the medical community and general public on the MTHFR/methylation genetic mutations and provide free diagnostics to low-income families, particularly Hispanics who are most impacted by these genetic mutations. Misdiagnosis among Hispanics, and other racial and ethnic groups in America, is at an all-time high. It is the third-leading cause of death in the U.S., according to a 2022 Health & Human Services Dept. report.

To me, first, it was having 12 kids that are all responsible, good people,” she said in 2009. “Then my business. It started out as a dinky place on Joslyn Road, and look at what we’ve got now … I think we brought Mexican culture to the forefront, where before no one knew about it, or what they thought they knew about it was derogatory.

Carmen Martinez was born in Rochester in 1929. Her parents moved the family to northern Mexico during the Great Depression, returning stateside in 1933. She met her husband, Trinidad Martinez, and soon-to-be business partner just before graduating high school. The two would go on to open several Trini & Carmen’s locations throughout the years, starting with downtown Pontiac’s TJ’s in 1959 and Carmen’s on Joslyn Road. Their most recent location, Trini’s Carryout in New Baltimore, is run by her grandchildren Randy and Michelle Boyd.

Martinez was also a volunteer and activist for organizations such as the former Mexican Mutualista Society and Labor Council for Latin American Advancement Scholarship. She was also a longtime member of the parish at St. Vincent de Paul Church, helping to organize community events, such as the annual re-enactment of the Passion of the Christ.

“Mrs. Martinez will be remembered as being the pillar of this community for many years. She was the prettier part of the first team of Hispanic entrepreneurs… This woman’s blood is somewhere in all ranks of the community,” Maria Moyet Bermudez, a member of the former Pontiac Latin Affairs Office said in a 2018 Oakland Press article.

Anthony Martinez Beven, a former freelance reporter for The Oakland Press, interviewed his grandmother in 2009 about her life and accomplishments. She said her children, active in politics and business throughout the county, brought her the greatest joy. She said she was also proud of building a restaurant brand that helped change people’s views of Mexican culture.
