The Role of Mitochondria in Neurological & Psychiatric Disorders

Dr. Chris Palmer was trained in psychiatry but learned throughout his career that despite traditional education, things may not always be as they seem. After an eye-opening experience with a patient, he realized just how much metabolic health can have an effect on neurological and psychiatric disorders. Today we’ll be discussing the role of mitochondria on mental health, and you’ll learn why the mitochondria is so much more than just, “the powerhouse of the cell.”

“Autophagy is like a spring cleaning for your cells.” —Dr. Chris Palmer

“Mitochondria are protected in the fasting state except for one exception, and that’s the unhealthy mitochondria.” (Mitophagy) —Dr. Chris Palmer


“There’s an intelligence to the mitochondria.” —Ben Azadi

  1. Humans who lived in El Mirador Cave in Atapuerca (Spain) 7,000 years ago ate domestic dogs, wild cats, foxes and badgers. This is revealed by 24 fossil remains found in the site, in the corresponding levels from the Neolithic to the Bronze Age, which in addition to cut marks show evidence of culinary processing and human bites. The Quaternary International magazine includes the finding in an article whose first signatory is the collaborator of the Catalan Institute of Human Paleoecology and Social Evolution (IPHES), Patricia Martín. This is the oldest documented evidence in the whole of Europe of the consumption of small carnivores and it is also the first time that human tooth marks have been used to confirm human consumption of these carnivores.

  2. It is true that lack of defined goals makes people sick. This is why the elderly and disabled who lose their careers and families often die sick, depressed, lonely, and can't identify what goals they would be interested in and fall into a depressive frame of mind

  3. Very interesting …I have found that increasing adaptogens, to help my mitochondria, has improved my energy a good deal… and while not depressed, adaptogens seem to make things brighter, or restores my youthful excitement (I'm 67).

  4. I've been Keto/Carnivore on and off for about 5 years. I 100% believe in it, but since I have been on and off for about 3 years now, I still eat about 80-90% clean Keto, I just can't lose anymore. I feel my only choice is to drink water and eat nothing. I'd laugh, but it a serious depressive issue. Anyway. my sister is skinny but has major mitochondrial dysfunction and hates fat from meat and refuses to eat it. She believes that I also have a mitochondrial issue and that is why I still can't lose the last 40 pounds. I'm currently going back on Carnivore. I totally respect all these people, but some of us have deeper medical issues that need to be addressed with an even stricter diet.

  5. Excellent talk. I love the work of Dr. Palmer.

    One note at 37:00… I don't think it's possible for the body to replace dead heart muscle cells, at least not with healthy new cells. I think they get replaced by scar tissue.
