Mitochondria are tiny organelles present in each
body cell and are known as the “powerhouses” of our
cells. They burn carbohydrates, fats, and proteins to
provide enough energy in the form of ATP (Adenosine
TriPhosphate) for our cells to sustain life and support
growth. Mitochondria are inherited directly from the
mother, with each ovum or egg containing 100,000
to 1,000,000 mitochondrial DNA molecules. Each
mitochondrion has its own DNA (Deoxyribonucleic
acid), which is highly vulnerable to damage from
free radicals, or reactive oxygen species (unstable
molecules) and toxins such as heavy metals.
Treatment of Mitochondrial Disease involves supporting the mitochondria with the correct food to provide the fuel required for energy conversion, as well as the removal of inhibiting toxins, drugs and other environmentally sourced chemicals.
