The Mitochondrial Link – Fearless Parent Podcast #81

In my first episode as a host of the Fearless Parent Podcast, I interviewed Dr. Chris Meletis about mitochondria, and how mitochondrial damage relates to health and chronic illness.  Dr. Meletis is brilliant and insightful and it was an honor to have him on the show!

You can learn more about the show, and download it, from this link:

Or, you can get it through iTunes:

Information about Dr. Meletis and his practice in Beaverton, Oregon, can be found on http://www.drmeletis.com/.  Dr. Meletis is changing the world’s health, one person at a time, through books, lectures, podcasts and his practice of naturopathic medicine.

A couple of Dr. Meletis’s wonderful articles on mitochondria are:

Mitochondria Resuscitation: The Key to Healing Every Disease

Mitochondria: The Missing Link in Hormone Therapy

They are highly recommended.

What does this have to do with fluoroquinolone toxicity?  Fluoroquinolones have been shown to damage mitochondria, the energy centers of our cells, so mitochondrial health and fluoroquinolone toxicity are tightly linked.

Thank you for listening and for sharing this podcast!

Frustratingly little is known about mitochondria and the role that they play in human illness.  I hope that this will change soon.
