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.

It's a Family Affair - Naturopathic Medicine and Family Practice

Friday Jul 14, 2017 - 5:00 PM to 05:45 PM - Arizona Biltmore, room McArthur B

Also speaking at this conference will be Joseph Pizzorno, ND, Tiernona Low Dog MD, Jared Skowron ND, Mimi Guarneri, MD, and many others. Drs. Pina and Peter speak together at the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians conference. At this lecture, they will discuss how they met, reflect on medical school and talk about their 13 year experience in private practice. Pina and Peter met at the National Institutes of Health where they both had a love of natural medicine and decided to go to Bastyr University together. After graduating with a degree in naturopathic medicine and acupuncture, they decided to get married and start their practice. They started out with no contacts in the industry, and made a lot of mistakes and learned many things in 13 years. They had a number of personal and professional challenges and upsets on the road to success. Today, they have one child, two successful New York practices, a combined 5 successful books under their belt. They also lecture nationally, formulate and consult for major nutraceutical manufacturers and distributors, and have extensive media coverage, most notably with Pina’s 21 appearances on Dr. Oz.  They even had a video piece about them in the New York Times.

How did they all this? This lecture will be part business, part personal and part inspirational.

FOOD AND YOUR GENETICS - The epigenetics of how foods turns your genes on and off

11.11.2015 - Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City

It’s fun to think of eating as an exciting taste adventure, and of course what we eat also supplies the nutrients essential to our well-being and the calories that keep us going. But at a deeper level, food contains vast amounts of information in a language our genes understand and obey. Incredible as it seems, what we put on our plate actually contributes to – or modifies – the functioning of our DNA. You’ll be amazed to discover how food can influence dramatic changes – helping to cause, heal, or prevent a disease – by turning specific genes on or off. Dr. Bongiorno will explain clearly and simply how genes and food work together. Join him to learn how we can help our genes make great decisions on our behalf, and how to make truly informed choices about eating for health.

Naturopathic Approaches to Alzheimer's Disease In the Context of Elevated Insulin

Dr. Kachko will discuss intermittent fasting, ketogenic diets, and a comprehensive approach to Alzheimer's therapy.

Sunday, October 4, 2015 at the 3 West Club in NY City

The role of hyperinsulinemia in the context of hyperglycemia due to insulin resistance has been well studied in its role in the development of Type II Diabetes (T2D). A strong correlation exists between T2D and Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), and the mechanisms involved are multi-factorial. Derangement in key amyloid-related enzymes secondary to increased insulin levels, increased inflammation, and increased oxidative stress among other factors have been well studied. Calorie Restriction (CR), along with variations on the clinical approach, has been shown to increase overall lifespan and to improve insulin resistance, reduce inflammation, and reduce oxidative stress markers. This review assesses the connection between hyperinsulinemia and CR in the context of Alzheimer’s Disease. This approach, based on available evidence in human and animal studies, is a reasonable adjunct to treatment protocols for Alzheimer’s Disease. Based on projected patient compliance CR variations may be employed, though likely with slower and less drastic impact on Alzheimer’s Disease outcomes.
