Mitochondria and Mood: Understanding the Role of Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Psychiatric Illness

Sept 28 through October 1, 2017 - Orange County, California

Dr. Peter Bongiorno will be speaking at this physician's conference alongside Drs. Daniel Amen, Dale Bredesen, Felice Gersh, James Greenblatt, Jonathan Prousky, and many more.

In high school, we all learned that the mitochondria are the “energy packs of the cell.” What we didn’t learn, even in med school, is that the health of the mitochondria are foundational to our health, including our best neurological health and mood. Understanding mitochondrial dysfunction may be the ultimate way to help treat ‘the underlying cause’ of psychiatric illness.

Please join Dr. Peter Bongiorno as he explains the physiology and biochemistry behind this little cellular powerhouse. He will discuss the evidence base supporting a clear role of mitochondrial dysfunction in psychiatric disease that will lead to mood disorders like depression, anxiety, bipolar and autism. Throughout the lecture, emphasis will focus on the role of hyperglycemia, stress response, dysinsulinemia, toxicity, inflammation, apoptotic events and nutrient deficiencies - all of which will be characterized, regarding their role in mitochondrial destruction.

Dr. Bongiorno will take you through the various practical clinical assessments as well as useful laboratory testing to best assess for mitochondrial issues. He will then discuss the roles of environmental exposure and toxicity, blood sugar dysregulation, nutrition and stress play on mitochondrial health. Finally, he will focus on how to use natural therapies (lifestyle, supplements, etc..) to heal and return to best mood.

In order to truly heal complex health challenges, it is imperative that we understand the process of disease at its roots. More and more evidence is clearly pointing to mitochondrial dysfunction as a root cause of illness. Understanding this process will be a key to treating chronic disease and aging from the roots. This program fits well within the naturopathic mission to increase the human life span and improve the quality life with aging by understanding and clinically implementing available research and scientific principles.
