Dr. Joseph Pizzorno: Mitochondria �" 1 CE
Adequate ATP production by the mitochondria is essential for life, wellbeing and disease prevention. This function is so important that mitochondria take up as much as 25% of the cell volume. Unfortunately, the mitochondria are especially susceptible to nutrient deficiencies, environmental toxins, and oxidative damage. Research now shows that the primary source of oxidative stress in cells is leakage of oxygen and high energy electrons from the mitochondria. Ever increasing exposure to mitochondrial damaging environmental toxins and common nutritional deficiencies has resulted in not only dysfunctional Krebbs cycle, but also uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation. This presentation provides clinically-relevant information about the mitochondria, how to recognize when and why they are dysfunctional, and optimal strategies to reestablish proper function and increase ATP production.
Dr. Gaetano Morello: Getting to the Guts of SIBO �" 1 CE
SIBO, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, is an increase in the number and/or alteration in the type of bacteria in the upper gastrointestinal tract. SIBO is one of the main causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and suspected to contribute to other digestive diseases. New emerging research sheds more light on our understanding of SIBOand how it interacts with other diseases.
Dr. Gaetano Morello will discuss novel understandings in assessing the etiology of this condition and review protocols for improving symptoms, while at the same time addressing and treating root causes.
