Cell health is crucial in all living things. They carry all the building blocks that make us! Known as the powerhouse of the cell, their biomedical process, cellular respiration, is what acts like a digestive system taking in nutrients, breaking them down, and then creating energy rich molecules for the cell.
My guest is Dr. Tim Jackson and he speaks to us about this incredible organelle. With his vast knowledge in biochemistry and epigenetics, he is a wealth of knowledge! Combining his background in integrative health and wellness with the emerging field of epigenetics he is able to help us understand the importance of your mitochondria’s well-being. Join us as we discuss how the health of the mitochondria ultimately impacts our future health.
Here are some of the things we talked about:
- What is a Mitochondria and Why are They Important?
- How to Make More of It
- How do they get Damaged and What are the Effects?
- The Impact Stress has on the Mitochondria
- Transgenerational Epigenetic Trauma
About the Guest:
Dr. Tim Jackson, DPT received his undergraduate degree in Health science and chemistry from Wake ForestUniversity in 2003. He completed his Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) from the Medical University of SC in 2009. Realizing that manual therapy and orthopedic care helped only some of his patients, he began studying functional and environmental medicine, as well as digestive health, in an effort to help others achieve wellness. Dr. Tim is educated in nutritional biochemistry, digestive health and its systemic effects, functional endocrinology, epigenetics, mold and Lyme disease, and auto-immune/neuro-immune disorders. Dr.Jackson’s clinical expertise spans everything from brain rehabilitation, functional endocrinology, Lyme Disease and stealth pathogens, integrative gastroenterology, mold toxicity, epigenetics and mitochondrial dysfunction.
