Dr. Mercola's 2022 Summerfest Presentation

• By DR Joseph Mercola

The Great Reset is bringing with it supply chain disruptions, food and energy shortages, economic collapse and global totalitarianism. Additional bioweapon releases are also possible, as are cyberwarfare attacks.

A sensible person will look at current signs and take precautions, and one of the best things you can do right now is to focus on your health, to give yourself a fighting chance to make it through these dark and potentially dangerous times.

Your Mitochondrial Health Is Paramount

One of the key areas of focus in this lecture is mitochondrial health. Mitochondria are tiny organelles inside most of your cells that produce ATP, the energy currency of your cells. Inside your body, you have about 100 quadrillion mitochondria. A given cell can have anywhere from 100 to 1 million mitochondria inside it.

During this energy production, the mitochondria produce a small amount of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which cause oxidative damage. If the oxidative stress is severe, mitochondrial dysfunction and energy failure can occur, which in turn can lead to fatigue and chronic diseases. Three of the most damaging factors, in terms of mitochondrial function are:

Excess iron

Lack of sun exposure, resulting in low mitochondrial melatonin

Excess omega-6 linoleic acid (LA)

By addressing these three factors, you can significantly reduce oxidative stress and improve your mitochondrial function.
