Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: The Role of Mitochondria

health Apr 18, 2022

One of the key underlying findings in conditions causing chronic mental or physical fatigue is dysfunction of the mitochondria.

Mitochondria are small structures located in the nucleus of every cell, and every cell contains thousands of them. These powerhouses produce the energy our bodies need to carry out every function in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). When mitochondria don’t function at their best, or too many of them are destroyed, our energy levels suffer.

While this can be due to inherited genetic disorders, most often, it is seen as the result of chronic damage over time. 

Because mitochondria are found in every cell of the body, often multiple systems are affected. This can result in a wide range of symptoms that are often hard to diagnose, especially in conventional medicine. Fortunately, we have ways to understand what each person needs through personalized approaches.

By integrating functional medicine, genomics, epigenetics, and Human Design we have the knowledge and the tools to unlock what each person needs to restore health – and then keep them healthy.
