Same Disease, Different Symptoms: It’s all in the Mitochondria

Hormones Matter Logo

Fluoroquinolone toxicity affects everyone differently. Why? Because that’s how mitochondrial dysfunction works. WHY? Because mitochondrial produced ROS influence gene expression and we all have different genes. WHAT? Yup, ROS affect gene expression. Perhaps we should be more careful with our mitochondria. After all, our genes are at stake.

    Thank you for everything you do Lisa!!! Stupid question…just don’t have the energy to research right now. Are we able to heal because Mitochondria will repair itself or is it that once it’s damaged it’s done?

      It’s not a stupid question at all, Amy! It’s a very valid question that I don’t know the answer to right now. I really need to look up how mitochondria repair themselves. Once I do a bit of research I’ll post something about it.

      I know that recovery isn’t a simple process. It’s not just a matter of taking a vitamin C supplement (an antioxidant) and calling it a day. There are a lot of complex feedback loops involved in mitochondrial injury. But I also know that healing is possible because I’m feeling quite well. So…. well… let me get back to you with a better answer after I have done some research.

      Hi Lisa,

      I suspect that all people with ME/CFS have damaged mitochondria and impaired energy metabolism. Have you seen Jen Brea’s film, Unrest? It’s really wonderful. I recommend it to everyone.
