Mitochondria in Health and Disease
A book by Ray Griffiths explores the complex roles of mitochondria in the body. When healthy, mitochondria provide us with ninety percent of our energy. But unhealthy mitochondria can contribute to many chronic and degenerative conditions including cancer and Alzheimer's disease. This guide helps practitioners to identify the mitochondrial dysfunction underlying a wide range of health complaints, and provides inspiration about relevant and emerging mitochondria-supportive dietary regimes and nutrients.
This book is the first in a new series of books edited by Lorraine Nicolle, under the title; Personalised Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine. Each book in the series will be a powerful new tool to help nutritionists and other healthcare practitioners to get the very best results for their patients, by devising nutritional interventions that complement each person's individual biochemical makeup. Other titles available soon will explore topics like nutrigenomics, case studies in personalised nutrition, cognitive decline, and mouth and dental health, to name but a few. Accessible and evidence-based, this innovative new series will provide essential guidance for practitioners in this fast-growing area of healthcare.
