ANDREW MURRAY: Well, welcome to this month's live Ask Your Herb Doctor. Sarah's not with us tonight. She's well but she's not with us so we're doing the show with Dr. Peat as a regular guest this evening and continuing the last two months' topic of the endocrine system. I'd like to break at some point during the show and intersperse some questions that we've had from people that have been

Moderate exercise increases endotoxin concentration in hypox... : Medicine

LIGHT | Machado, Paola MD; Caris, Aline MD

Hypoxia and high altitudes affect various organs, impairing important physiological functions. A recent study showed that rodents exposed to hypoxia equivalent to 7000 m for 72 hours exhibit an intestinal barrier disruption mediated by an increased translocation of bacteria and increased circulating endotoxin levels;[1] this fact suggests that impaired gastrointestinal functions can contribute to inflammation observed in systemic hypoxia. However, little is known about the effects of hypoxia at approximately 4000 m, an altitude more often frequented by humans. Chronic moderate physical exercise promotes a decrease in the concentration of endotoxin and regulates the pro/anti-inflammatory balance, partially reversing the inflammation that occurs in obesity.[2] Moreover, acute and strenuous exercise can disrupt the integrity of the intestinal epithelium[3,4] and increase intestinal permeability, that is, the endotoxin concentration that stimulates pro-inflammatory cytokine production.

so why do women suffer more AI disease than men? they are primed via evolutionary design to be more sensitive to stressos, because they carry the germ line and template for bioenergetics in mitochondrial DNA. one only recieves mitochondrial DNA from the mother, so it is imperetive that this is protected from damage and stress. furthermore, the action of estrogen is in potentiating the adrenal output, and interfering with the negative feedback between the adrenals and the pituitary, meaning the stress response cannot be shut off, and tissue breakdown continues under the direction of these catabolic hormones. These people will often say tvey feel better after this sort of exercise, or feel hoorrible without it. This is because cortisol in acute doses is immunosuppressive. This gives short term relief from the inflammation associated with clean-up, but contributes to the pathology long term.

why do we see such a high incidence of autoimmunity in women participating in high intensity exercises regularly (crossfit, f45, etc)? in short, any stressor that depletes the bodys metabolic capacity to provide energy signals the generalised adaptation syndrome as outlined by hans selye. central to the stress response is the release of adrenaline and cortisol that catabolise the body to retrieve resources for energy production. by catabolising the body, cortisol leaves in its wake tissue damage and destruction that must be swept up by the immune system. this immune system recognises damaged tissue and its origin and the overactive immune system can never switch off as it aggressively is asked to clean up for as long as the metabolic stress persists. it is no secret that cortisol destroys the brain and the thymus gland, which is responsible for regulating the immune response.

One of the biggest myths about chronic fatigue syndrome just got debunked - ScienceAlert

But Staines suggests that the involvement of TRPM3 receptors could explain why so many patients appear to experience CFS/ME following a traumatic event or serious infection. The class of receptors TRPM3 belongs to are also known as 'threat rececptors', because they're upregulated when the body is under any kind of threat, such as infection, trauma, or even childbirth.

Light-harvesting chlorophyll pigments enable mammalian mitochondria to capture photonic energy and produce ATP | Journal of Cell Science

LIGHT | Chen Xu, Junhua Zhang, Doina M. Mihai, Ilyas Washington

http://jcs.biologists.org/content/127/2/388

Sunlight is the most abundant energy source on this planet. However, the ability to convert sunlight into biological energy in the form of adenosine-5′-triphosphate (ATP) is thought to be limited to chlorophyll-containing chloroplasts in photosynthetic organisms. Here we show that mammalian mitochondria can also capture light and synthesize ATP when mixed with a light-capturing metabolite of chlorophyll.

Therapeutic pro metabolic combination for Fibromyalgia. We have been developing targeted interventions to help specific presentations based on a bioenergetic understanding of the pathophysiology underlying these syndromes. The combination of the anti-serotonin product Ritanserin and the cardiolipin restoring Mitolipin, alongside low level light therapy in our MitoGen light pod is having a dramatic influence on energy levels of fibromyalgia sufferers. Treating conditions based on root cause is what we are doing here.

13 Things Helped This Hypothyroid Man Beat Chronic Mental Illness

Making sure you eat enough calories and carbohydrates on a daily basis is critical for optimal thyroid and brain function. A landmark paper, known as the Vermont Study, found that thyroid hormone drops when you don’t eat enough calories and carbohydrates (14). Several other studies also show that ketogenic low-carb diets can suppress thyroid function and reduce thyroid hormone. This is because carbohydrates play a key role on the production of thyroid hormone (15-18).
