As you age, your mitochondrial function decreases, and this is a hallmark of both the aging process itself as well as most chronic disease. Bio-energy testing can quantitatively measure the function of your mitochondria.
Even asymptomatic people in their 30s can have significantly decreased mitochondrial function. Early onset mitochondrial dysfunction is indicative of premature aging and future health problems.
Two substances that significantly improve mitochondrial function are B vitamins and intravenous ozone.
Certain lifestyle strategies will also improve mitochondrial function, the top two being interval exercise and an individualized diet. Lowering your stress and detoxing heavy metals are two others.
Your thyroid may also need to be addressed if your mitochondrial function is impaired. The key here is using bioidentical hormones.
