Cardiolipin supplementation may reverse signs of aging

One of the key features of aging is the decline in mitochondrial function (metabolism), and that fact is widely recognized even by mainstream medicine. However, doctors still claim that the relationship between metabolic decline and aging has not be elucidated and a causative link cannot be established (yet). In other words, we don’t know if … Read more Cardiolipin supplementation may reverse signs of aging

Mad cow disease may be a mitochondrial/metabolic issue

Peat has mentioned the Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease (CJD) / BSE in several of his articles and interviews and has explained how environmental stress, estrogen, PUFA, ionizing radiation, etc can cause metabolic derangements resulting in the same brain damage so characteristic of this pathology. The public is more familiar with that pathology under the name of mad … Read more Mad cow disease may be a mitochondrial/metabolic issue

Aspirin protects mitochondria from inflammation and aging

The good news about aspirin just never seem to stop. While the anti-inflammatory effects of aspirin are well-known, mainstream medicine like to explain them away with the limited (and frankly primitive) mechanism of COX inhibition alone. If aspirin happens to achieve some other beneficial health effects, the doctors always try to either frame it in … Read more Aspirin protects mitochondria from inflammation and aging

Restoring metabolism prevents / reverses “permanent” nerve damage

Yet another study demonstrating the crucial role cellular metabolism plays in pathological processes. While most of the posts on this blog deal with beneficial effects of improving OXPHOS on various chronic diseases, the study below demonstrates that the same may be true in acute pathologies such as traumatic injury, especially in tissues with high energy … Read more Restoring metabolism prevents / reverses “permanent” nerve damage

Restoring energy production in immune cells is therapeutic in cancer

The title of the popular press article is kind of the reverse of mine – i.e. cancer cells evade treatment by blocking energy production in immune cells (T-cells). However, my title still holds since the actual study did show that restoring energy production in T-cells restores the effectiveness of immune-boosting therapies for cancer. Either way, … Read more Restoring energy production in immune cells is therapeutic in cancer

Exposure to fluoride actually damages teeth, even at low concentrations

Most adults are familiar with the much-publicized (and advertised) claims of public health authorities about the purported benefits of fluoride exposure for dental health. The official story is that by adding fluoride to tap water, people’s teeth are exposed to “low” concentration of fluoride, which has a strengthening effect on the enamel and makes it … Read more Exposure to fluoride actually damages teeth, even at low concentrations

Some ALS cases may be cured by vitamin B2 (riboflavin)

A rather fascinating case study/report, which, despite its misleading and convoluted description, suggests yet again that motor neuron diseases such as Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) are nothing but severe mitochondrial/energetic dysfunction that can often be remediated quite easily. This is not at all an exaggeration – several studies I posted about (see below) in the … Read more Some ALS cases may be cured by vitamin B2 (riboflavin)

Low Dose Lithium May Stop Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) in Its Tracks

This study was sent to me by one of my Twitter followers. In some of my past interviews/podcasts, I did mention isolated published case studies, as well as anecdotal medical reports of even advanced cases of AD getting rapidly reversed by micro-dosing regimens using lithium salts such as aspartate or orotate. The doses reported by … Read more Low Dose Lithium May Stop Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) in Its Tracks

How chronic stress (cortisol) causes disease

Back in 2018 I did a post on a neat study that demonstrated how the presence of cellular (mitochondrial) fragments in the blood stream acts identically to the pituitary hormone ACTH and as such activates the HPA axis. The more cellular fragments are in the bloodstream the more intense the stress response from the adrenals. … Read more How chronic stress (cortisol) causes disease

Increasing metabolism may reverse Alzheimer Disease (AD) and general aging

Yet another study demonstrating the remarkable parallels between the decline in function (metabolism) and the structural abnormalities that occur not only in specific pathologies such as AD but also in the generalized degradation known as “aging”. FDA currently does not recognize aging as a disease, but the evidence for it is rapidly accumulating. Just a … Read more Increasing metabolism may reverse Alzheimer Disease (AD) and general aging
