Mitochondria, Autism, and the Cell Danger Response

Complex disorders like autism can be improved, but cannot be recovered by measuring and treating each of the molecular problems and correcting them one-by-one. Complex disorders heal by triggering an ancient program of molecular changes that reboots and restores normal cell and systems communication. This program is called the healing cycle. Metabokines are chemicals produced by injured and healing cells. Metabokines bind to cellular receptors, change gene expression, and facilitate progression through the 3 steps of healing cycle. One important metabokine is the energy molecule, extracellular ATP (eATP).

Complex Chronic Illness – The New Normal

Many childhood chronic diseases have increased dramatically over the past three decades.  We will emphasize some potential environmental factors that may be acting as antecedents, triggers or mediators that parents can help their children avoid.  We will discuss prenatal & postnatal strategies that can aid in the prevention of serious health conditions in children.  We will look at the evidence about how non-medication strategies can impact the quality of life for child and family.

POTS & PANS: Childhood Disorders on the Rise

Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) is a form of orthostatic intolerance that is characterized by lightheadedness, fainting, and a rapid increase in heart rate with standing.  It was named in the early 1990’s, and cases have been increasing in the decades since.  We will discuss the latest research on treatment strategies and laboratory evaluations with an emphasis on how these disorders depend on clinical diagnosis and integrating the history of each individual patient.  Case histories will show the progress and challenges of real patients being treated for these conditions.

Bioenergetics and Genetics: Ancient Mitochondrial DNA and their Connection to the Brain and Chronic Fatigue

The common health adage of ‘structure and function’ couldn’t be more precise when it comes to health and healing. From bridges to bicycles to bones, the concept of structure and function holds also true in our mitochondria. The brain and nervous system are particularly harmed by alterations of both mitochondrial shape and function. They are also highly influenced by maternally inherited mitochondrial DNA.

“Complex” diseases such as autism and chronic fatigue syndrome are overlooked due to the subtle bioenergetic changes which can lead to major health consequences. Learn about the connections between mums and their kids. Boosting ATP is only the beginning!

Using Probiotic Smoothies and Juices to Increase Nutrient Intake that Supports Mitochondrial Health.

Healing diets to address imbalances within the body often require eliminating certain foods for a period of time. You may even need to eliminate foods that are from mother nature and that are nutrient dense such as fruit and high sugar and starch vegetables. This change in diet is vital to restore optimal health but it may compromise key nutrients and minerals that we need for our mitochondrial health.

Probiotic smoothies are a fantastic way to ensure that you are obtaining all the key nutrients and minerals for your mitochondria whilst on a healing diet. Fermenting nutrient dense drinks like smoothies ensure all the nutrition you need without the natural sugars such as glucose and the extra carbohydrates.

The best part is that they are delicious, easy to make and kids young and old love them.
