How to Measure and Optimize Your Mitochondrial Health (2023)

Dr. Frank Shallenberger, author of “ Bursting With Energy: The Breakthrough Method to Renew Youthful Energy and Restore Health ,” has been a natural medicine physician for nearly five decades. He’s a true pioneer in the field and, as most good natural medicine physicians, a perpetual student. He was actually the first to innovate the use of nebulized hydrogen peroxide, which has become my favorite intervention for upper respiratory infections, including SARS-CoV-2. Sadly, it's been widely disparaged, but those that have used it are typically really impressed by the results. In this interview, we’ll review a number of strategies you can use to optimize your mitochondrial health and function. After graduating from medical school, Shallenberger first went into trauma medicine. After about seven years, he transitioned into being a general practitioner and internist. Within months, however, he realized that nobody was getting well. In fact, many were gett

7 Best Magnesium for Mitochondrial Function 2023

Magnesium is the fourth most abundant element in your body and one of the seven essential minerals we cannot live without. An essential dietary mineral, it is a required mineral co-factor in over 300 enzymes in the body. Since over 68% of Americans are magnesium deficient, this would be a good mineral to start consuming. What is Mitochondria? Mitochondria play a critical role in the production of necessary energy for the cell's survival and functioning. They are responsible for most of the useful energy obtained from the breakdown of carbohydrates and fatty acids, which is transformed to ATP via the oxidative phosphorylation process. Magnesium and Mitochondria Health Source:  Maximizing Your Mitochondria with Magnesium Magnesium can help increase oxidative capacity, the ability of your mitochondria to produce ATP from oxygen. Most people only tend to focus that oxidative capacity only depends on the availability of oxygen, however, the truth is this activity also critically relie

Ischemic Stroke: Signs, Symptoms and Treatment (2023)

Strokes can be divided into hemorrhagic stroke and ischemic strokes, and approximately 80% of them are ischemic brain injury. Ischemic strokes are sometimes referred to as "brain attacks" (instead of "heart attacks") because they typically occur when a blood clot blocks an artery or blood vessel, cutting off blood flow to your brain, as opposed to your heart. 1 As a result, brain cells die and neurological damage can occur. Without proper and timely treatment, a stroke can be lethal. According to statistics published in 2020, 2  an estimated 795,000 strokes occur each year in the U.S., and in 2017, 146,383 Americans died as a result. However, new research in 2022 shows an 11% increase in new cases of stroke that cause brain bleeding, or intracerebral hemorrhage stroke, and at a faster rate in younger to middle-age people. 3 Stroke is also a leading cause of long-term disability in the U.S. 4  Worldwide, stroke is the second
