Mitochondrial Diseases & Psychiatric Disorders

There are an estimated 30 Trillion cells in your body. That number is 30,000,000,000,000. These cells all perform different functions from making up your eye, to your brain, immune system etc. The cell is made up of different components which do different things. Toxins destroy the functioning of cells. These toxins include chemicals in our environment, heavy metals and toxins created by pathogens.

 In this article, the authors discuss mitochondria dysfunction and its relationship with psychiatric disorders. This includes migraines, seizures, cognitive problems, autism, schizophrenia and others.


Proper detoxification and nutritional measures are able to get the mitochondrial functioning normally. Antioxidants are of particular note.
