Mitochondria and the Future of Medicine: The Key to Understanding Disease, Chronic Illness, Aging, and Life Itself

With information for patients and practitioners on optimizing mitochondrial function for greater health and longevity
Why do we age? Why does cancer develop? What's the connection between heart failure and Alzheimer's disease, or infertility and hearing loss? Can we extend lifespan, and if so, how? What is the Exercise Paradox? Why do antioxidant supplements sometimes do more harm than good? Many will be amazed to learn that all these questions, and many more, can be answered by a single point of discussion: mitochondria and bioenergetics.
In Mitochondria and the Future of Medicine, Naturopathic Doctor Lee Know tells the epic story of mitochondria, the widely misunderstood and often-overlooked powerhouses of our cells. The legendary saga began over two billion years ago, when one bacterium entered another without being digested, which would evolve to create the first mitochondrion. Since then, for life to exist beyond single-celled bacteria, it's the mitochondria that have been responsible for this life-giving energy. By understanding how our mitochondria work, in fact, it is possible to add years to our lives, and life to our years.
Current research, however, has revealed a dark side: many seemingly disconnected degenerative diseases have tangled roots in dysfunctional mitochondria. However, modern research has also endowed us with the knowledge on how to optimize its function, which is of critical importance to our health and longevity.

Mitochondrial Dysfunction: A Functional Medicine Approach to Diagnosis and Treatment: Get Rid of Fat, Fatigue, and Brain Fog

The book begins with my own health journey through mitochondrial fatigue and how I overcame it with the functional medicine approach to diagnosis and treatment. The first two chapters discuss the basic science of the mitochondria and their involvement in cell defense, energy production, aging, and cancer. The following chapters deals with the avoidance of chemicals, pesticides, and toxins that poison the mitochondria, food to nourish them, supplements, and hormetic lifestyle changes. The next chapter details the functional medicine approach to patient's symptoms using lab testing to arrive at the diagnosis and treatment. The book concludes with a summary of actionable items that the reader can do at home.
If you suffer from chronic fatigue, excess fat that you can't lose, brain fog, or any number of symptoms, the answer might just lie deep in your cell called mitochondria. They are responsible to make energy called ATP for the cell to function. If they sense danger to the cell and to themselves, they will shut down ATP production and go into cell defense mode, resulting in generalized dysfunction of the most active cells like the muscles and brain. You can now reverse this process using a validated method by the Mayo Clinic.
Dr. Chang has personally gone through a health journey of mitochondrial dysfunction and fatigue and by applying the methods in the book, he has fully recovered.

Mitochondria: From Physiology to Pathology

Mitochondria play an increasingly central role in the context of cellular physiology. These organelles possess their own genome (mtDNA), which is functionally coordinated with the nuclear genome. Mitochondrial gene expression is mediated by molecular processes (replication, transcription, translation, and assembly of respiratory chain complexes) that all take place within the mitochondria. Several aspects of mtDNA expression have already been well characterized, but many more either are under debate or have yet to be discovered.
Understanding the molecular processes occurring in mitochondria also has clinical relevance. Dysfunctions affecting these important metabolic 'hubs' are associated with a whole range of severe disorders, known as mitochondrial diseases. In recent years, significant progress has been made to understand the pathogenic mechanisms underlying mitochondrial dysfunction; however, to date, mitochondrial diseases are complex genetic disorders without any effective therapy. Current therapeutic strategies and clinical trials are aimed at mitigating clinical manifestations and slowing the disease progression to improve the quality of life of patients.
The goal of the Special Issue 'Mitochondria: from Physiology to Pathology' published in Life (ISSN: 2075-1729) was to collect research and review articles covering the physiological and pathological aspects related to mtDNA maintenance and gene expression, mitochondrial biogenesis, protein import, organelle metabolism, and quality control.

Mighty Mito: Power Up Your Mitochondria for Boundless Energy, Laser Sharp Mental Focus and a Powerful Vibrant Body

Ever wonder why toddlers and preschoolers run around with endless energy, and you’re ready to fall asleep just watching them? Finally, Dr. Susanne Bennett, DC, CCSP, has the answer! And it all has to do with the mighty mitochondria—that subcellular organelle that is responsible for your body’s energy production.
Through Mighty Mito, Dr. Susanne explains why we lose energy as we get older and how each one of us can regain that energy by providing what our mitochondria thrive on. Healthy mitochondria equal better energy production in our cells. Better energy production equals more energy—and you’ll feel years, or even decades, younger. Mighty Mito contains step-by-step instructions on what mitochondria need to be healthy, including diet, exercise, and your environment.
Power up your mitochondria for boundless energy, laser sharp mental focus, and a powerful vibrant body—it’s that simple.

Mitochondria in Health and Diseases

Mitochondria are subcellular organelles evolved by the endosymbiosis of bacteria with eukaryotic cells. They are the main source of ATP in the cell and engaged in other aspects of cell metabolism and cell function, including the regulation of ion homeostasis, cell growth, redox status, and cell signaling. Due to their central role in cell life and death, mitochondria are also involved in the pathogenesis and progression of human diseases/conditions, including neurodegenerative and cardiovascular disorders, cancer, diabetes, inflammation, and aging. However, despite the increasing number of studies, precise mechanisms whereby mitochondria are involved in the regulation of basic physiological functions, as well as their role in the cell under pathophysiological conditions, remain unknown. A lack of in-depth knowledge of the regulatory mechanisms of mitochondrial metabolism and function, as well as interplay between the factors that transform the organelle from its role in pro-survival to pro-death, have hindered the development of new mitochondria-targeted pharmacological and conditional approaches for the treatment of human diseases. This book highlights the latest achievements in elucidating the role of mitochondria under physiological conditions, in various cell/animal models of human diseases, and in patients.
