Scientists unravel molecular mechanisms of Parkinson’s disease

by Lee Know (Author)
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.
Mitochondria (Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives in Biology) by Douglas C. Wallace (Author), Richard J. Youle (Author)Mitochondria are subcellular organelles that function as “power plants¨for the cell, generating energy in the form of ATP from glucose, oxygen, and other molecules. Thought to have arisen about 2 billion years ago when an aerobic bacterium invaded the primitive eukaryotic cell, they have their own DNA, undergo fission and fusion independently, and play an important role in programmed cell death. Written and edited by experts in the field, this collection from Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives in Biology discusses the evolution of mitochondria, their functions in cells, and the numerous… View Details Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Myalgic Encephalitis: It’s Mitochondria, Not Hypochondria by Dr. Sarah Myhill (Author)
Mitochondria are the powerhouses of our cells, essential for the production and management of energy at the cell level. Dr. Sarah Myhill has spent years studying the relationship between mitochondrial malfunction and one of the most common problems that leads people to the doctor’s office: fatigue.
In Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Myalgic Encephalitis , Dr. Myhill examines this essential role of our mitochondria in energy production and why it is key to understanding and overcoming Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and the inflammation that often… View Details The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles by Terry Wahls M.D. (Author), Eve Adamson (Author) An integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions by a doctor, researcher, and sufferer of progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) whose TEDx talk is already a web sensation Like many physicians, Dr. Terry Wahls focused on treating her patients’ ailments with drugs or surgical procedures—until she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000. Within three years, her back and stomach muscles had weakened to the point where she needed a tilt-recline wheelchair. Conventional medical treatments were failing her, and she feared that she would be bedridden for… View Details by Immo E. Scheffler (Author) “This volume inspires. It certainly will be much appreciated by cell biologists all over the world.” Quarterly Review of Biology , March 2009
This book is the eagerly awaited second edition of the best-selling Mitochondria , a book widely acknowledged as the first modern, truly comprehensive authored work on the important, scientifically fundamental topic of the cellular organelles known as mitochondria.
This new edition brings readers completely up to date on the many significant findings that have occurred in the eight years since the book was first… View Details Your Mitochondria: Key to Health and Longevity Your Mitochondria : Key to Health and Longevity is a must read for anyone who wants a healthier lifestyle. The book provides a deep dive into the relationship between mitochondrial health and cardiovascular diseases; cardiometabolic syndrome; neurodegenerative diseases; arthritis; cancer; and the aging effects on the skin, eyes, and muscles.Want to live longer and live better?Want to stave off age-related diseases?Want to look younger and maintain vitality? Read Your Mitochondria – Start Living Better. Mitochondria in Health and Disease: Personalized Nutrition for Healthcare Practitioners (Personalized Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine for Healthcare Practitioners) by Ray Griffiths (Author), Lorraine Nicolle (Series Editor), Lorraine Nicolle (Series Editor)
What are the functions of mitochondria in the human body? Why might they stop working properly and what can happen as a result? How can personalized nutrition help to optimize mitochondrial function and prevent or address chronic conditions?
This innovative book explores the incredibly complex biochemical roles of mitochondria in health and disease. When healthy, mitochondria provide us with ninety percent of our body’s energy. When unhealthy, this can lead to many chronic and degenerative conditions including cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. This guide helps practitioners to identify… View Details Mighty Mito: Power Up Your Mitochondria for Boundless Energy, Laser Sharp Mental Focus and a Powerful Vibrant Body by Wellness For Life PressEver 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… View Details Mitochondria: Practical Protocols (Methods in Molecular Biology) by Dejana Mokranjac (Editor), Fabiana Perocchi (Editor)
This volume compiles a broad range of step-by-step protocols, complementary to the ones published in the first edition of this book, to study various aspects of mitochondrial structure and function in different model organisms, both in vitro and in vivo. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

These are the sorts of natural disasters movies are made from, because throughout history we’ve learned that natural disasters often become human disasters. But how much are we contributing to the scale of the human toll of natural disasters when they hit? How much do our decisions about where to build, what to build, and how to build impact that cost? We spend the hour with Robert Muir-Wood, author of “The Cure for Catastrophe: How We Can Stop Manufacturing Natural Disaster”, talking about what he’s learned over his 25 years working to understand the risks associated with… Your browser does not support the audio element.
