Transcript: One of the more recent discoveries of modern medicine is the mitochondria and the role it plays in health, particularly in muscular and neurodegenerative disease. The mitochondria is both the powerhouse of the cell and the storage place of DNA. This means that mitochondrial dysfunction creates both DNA mutation during cellular replication (which occurs […]
Transcript: One of the most overlooked causes of ill health and poor functioning is mitochondrial error – AKA inborn errors of metabolism and cellular oxidation. Oxidation occurs in a cell when an organism is forced to endure stresses beyond their capabilities, whether through environment, life stress, or poor nutrition, or any combination of these factors.

Podcast One – Explanation of Psychoneuroimmunology Transcript: The basis behind psychoneuroimmunology is the fact that human behaviour is never really just human behaviour. This is because the creature we call a human is really actually an ecosystem of tiny creatures who ideally function together in a complex dance involving sugars, proteins, and minerals. You are […]
Many inborn errors of metabolism prevent the Krebs cycle from occurring in full, resulting in a pathology which can represent as anything from inflammation in the tissue, exhaustion, pain without known etiology, etc, and may be recognized in forms ranging from autism to porphyria. Regardless of the precise end result and diagnosis, several factors remain the same; metabolism is not at an optimal level on a cellular basis.

For the past few weeks I have been bouncing around the idea with a colleague about the concept of running a formal trial with volunteers from the Canadian Forces who are presently on the Veterans’ Affairs waiting list for PTSD treatment. The main driving idea behind the study is comparing the day to day function […]
