Mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell and, well, everything else!
Mitochondria are tied into all the following issues:
Fibromyalgia = muscle pain brought on by dysfunction nerve signals.
Toxicity = heavy metal or solvent chemical damage in the body; especially to delicate membranes.
Diabetes = out of control insulin resistance that may be caused by a reduction in the body’s ability to efficiently burn fuel.
Muscle fatigue and pain from statin medications = pain due to an interruption in the production of CoQ10.
Anxiety = poor function of neurons in the brain.
Mitochondria are little organelles in the cell that make energy. I think of them like an awesome pod with millions of delicately folded walls or membranes inside. Along the top of these walls, I imagine little chains of molecules that dutifully pass molecules along the line: transforming, re-arranging, subtracting, creating. And in the end, they create energy!
Mitochondria create little packets of energy that:
keep the neurons in your brain calm, and…
give your muscles the power to stay relaxed.
Because there is a tricky little secret in the human body: it takes work to stay relaxed and calm. The default response of a tired brain? Fear and anxiety. The default response of tired muscles? Cramping. The default response of neurons that aren’t making enough energy? Repeatedly firing and firing until they become completely depleted and exhausted.
So in order for you to be calm and relaxed on all levels, the mitochondria need to be humming along.
Which brings me, finally, to one of the great enemies of the mitochondria: TOXICITY! It’s hard for me to overstate the impact toxicity has on our health. Before doing bioresonance tests in my practice, I didn’t realize how toxic my patients were. But now that I know…sheesh! Why is toxicity so bad for them? Well, remember the inside of the mitochondria? The little pod with all the tiny little folds and walls? And how all these folds support the work of making packets of energy for the cells?
Heavy metals and chemicals can:
poison the enzyme workers on top of the mitochondrial folds, and…
punch holes in the walls of the membranes, making them unstable.
The result is a decrease in mitochondrial energy production (respiration), and an increased risk of pain, spasm, and anxiety.
