Mitochondrial disease – this is a new disease?

Mitochondrial diseases are, which originate in the cells: The mitochondria, which are tiny cellular components that are primarily responsible for energy production in the cells do not function properly. There are several reasons. The medicine knew for a long time only the inheritable mitochondrial disorders that are caused by corrupted or altered genes. Today they are called mitochondrial disorders “primary mitochondrial disorders”. They usually appear early in childhood with symptoms of massive especially highly energy requiring organs revealed (nerve disorders, muscle weakness, eye problems, brain disorders etc.).
Mitochondrial disease

Secondary mitochondrial disease.

Another form of mitochondrial disease is the so-called acquired or secondary mitochondrial disease. Even when you do revolves around damage to the mitochondria, which are, however, caused by environmental factors in the course of life. What influences can be, for example heavy metal pollution, other toxins, chronic infections and many more. The symptoms of this “new” secondary mitochondrial disease, however, are anything but new: allergies, autoimmune diseases, depression, burnout, cardiovascular diseases and many more are caused by (also) in a secondary mitochondrial disease. One could even say that all chronic and multiple organ problems, or any so-called “diseases of civilization” are secondary mitochondrial disorders.

How can it be that a “new” disease in familiar complaints plays a role?

Actually, the answer is quite simple: it has long since known. Only in recent decades new insights have been gained on mitochondrial and cellular metabolism that give us a deeper insight into the origin of diseases. Many of these findings indicate at some time in the successes of practical medical experience, but so far had no scientific basis and was therefore not recognized. This will change to date. Medical research brings new insights into mitochondria and their importance in cellular metabolism and in the onset of disease almost every day. The Regenerative mitochondrial medicine based on these research findings. Thus we have now with this new field of medicine a lot of good opportunities at hand to deal with well-known diseases at the level of mitochondria and the cells and cause new cure. Regenerative mitochondrial medicine corrects the way past out of control cell metabolism, helps the mitochondria to regenerate damaged or eliminate them and to encourage the development of new. This is a huge opportunity for the medicine, which is not very successful especially with multi-organ diseases, chronic diseases and diseases of civilization, unfortunately.

Which diseases are based on a secondary mitochondrial disease and can benefit from the new regenerative mitochondrial medicine?


Allergies indicate an attenuation immune system that is always accompanied by a massive inflammatory process. The body is under a high Radical-load, which harms mitochondria.Here it is important to find the triggering load and and limit the damage.

Autoimmune diseases.

Again, there are diseases in which the immune system is acting wrong, it is against your own body. Inflammation is also here significant pioneer of the disease, which always cause a destruction of the mitochondria. Examples are:

  • Rheumatoid diseases
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Type I diabetes mellitus
  • Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
  • Graves’ disease
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Graves’ disease
  • Sjogren’s syndrome
  • Lupus erythematosus
  • Vitiligo, alopecia
  • Chronic gastritis.

Regenerative mitochondrial medicine is here for the basics on relieved and support the body and its cells and thus calm the immune system. How far a cure is possible, depends on the disease progression. But an improvement is usually reached.

Neurodegenerative diseases.

Damage to nerves and brain can cause many different symptoms, Alzheimer’s disease or Parkinson, as well as multiple sclerosis or some musculoskeletal disorders. Damage to nerves and brain can cause many different symptoms, Alzheimer’s disease or Parkinson, as well as multiple sclerosis and some musculoskeletal disorders or the muscles disorders (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, spinal muscular atrophy, myasthenia, etc.). Nervous tissue is highly energy-dependent and thus always affected if the mitochondria can’t function properly. Even longer-lasting mild memory lapses and difficulty concentrating show a lack of the nerve cells. The earlier is controlled here with appropriate action against, the better for the entire course.


The burnout syndrome is also a mitochondrial disease. Although this disease is currently housed in the medicine completely in psychological or psychotherapeutic treatment, we know (and also the sufferers) that each burnout case always shows also physical exhaustion syndromes. For here lies a major cause of the problem: The mitochondria are for some reason no longer be able to supply the body with sufficient energy. Therefore burn-out can treat with regenerative mitochondrial medicine outstanding and gives patients more power soon to address the psychological side of the problem.


Depression is often caused by a disturbed metabolic processes in the nerve and brain cells and therefore almost always occurring concomitant with mitochondrial disorders. Who can bring chaos into the cells order, most also completed his depression. The mitochondrial medicine is a great help here.

Cardiovascular disease.

In this “civilization diseases” have the conventional medicine and pharmacology very many treatment options, however, only affect all the symptoms and ignore the fundamental evil. The metabolism and especially the mitochondria are damaged. The heart is an organ with a very high energy requirement and therefore has very many mitochondria cells in its. In addition, the heart function is of course heavily dependent on electrical processes and the nerves supplying. Even in these tissues the mitochondria play a major role. If, in the small cell components is damage, then the heart is too weak for his daily work. You suffer from irregular beats, atrial fibrillation and more. Even the dreaded arteriosclerosis and its consequences (myocardial infarction, stroke) are not related to the “bad” cholesterol together, as is still told, but with a wrong speed metabolism.

Type II Diabetes Mellitus.

The Type II diabetes (adult onset diabetes earlier, but nowadays even very many young people spread) is a metabolic disorder that has many causes. A mitochondrial disease always is one of them. Those who type II undergoes a treatment according to the standards of Regenerative mitochondrial medicine in diabetes, which has a good chance of a full recovery – assuming there are no damages of the disease before.

Other diseases associated with mitochondrial disease.

The list of diseases that play a role in the secondary mitochondrial disorders, could be continued writing for a long time: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS, or today rather Myalgic Encephalomyelitis ME called), fibromyalgia, cancer, asthma, chronic eye diseases such as cataracts and glaucoma (glaucoma and cataracts) and also age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and many more. Are all mitochondriopathies treatable with Regenerative mitochondrial medicine and thus at least can come to improve the situation. Ultimately, it can benefit any ill when the metabolism of its cells and mitochondria supported directed in the right direction. Only in this way the body can regenerate itself.
