How do healthy Mitochondria prevent cancer?









Your mitochondria provide energy for your cells and are also responsible for apoptosis (programmed cell death-cancer cells, are resistant to this suicide protocol, and have a built-in defence against it), and serve as   important  signalling molecules that help regulate your genetic expression. Hence, the state of your mitochondria plays a key role in health and disease.

Once your mitochondria become damaged and  dysfunctional, your energy reserves decrease, leading to a wide variety of symptoms, some of the most common being headache and fatigue, and leaving you increasingly vulnerable to   degenerative diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and neurodegenerative decay.


Unfortunately, mitochondrial damage is more the norm than the exception these days, thanks to the prevalence of processed food diets, inactivity, lack of sun exposure and excessive exposure to toxins and electromagnetic radiation from mobile phones, routers, cellular towers and more. On the  upside, your body can regenerate and renew, regardless of your age — provided it has the proper fuel to do so, mitochondria can regenerate.

How to regenerate Mitochondria?

  • A ketogenic diet — which is very low in net carbohydrates and high in healthy fats — is key for boosting mitochondrial function.
  • Intermittent Fasting
  • Co-enzyme Q10
  • D-Ribose
  • Alpha lipoic Acid
  • Practitioner Only B vitamins
  • Fish oil.
