Minding your mitochonia Terry Wahls TEDxIowaCity
So, I love doing Taekwondo and was once a national champion. But a lot has changed since then. I went off to medical school, became a physician. I had a son, and then a daughter. And I developed a chronic disease for which there is no cure. In 2000 when I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, I turned to the best MS center I could find,the Cleveland . I saw the very best s, received the best care possible.
taking the latest newest ugs. Still by 2003, my disease had transitionedto secondary progressive MS. I took the recommended chemoterapy I got the tiltrecline wheelchair. I had one with a motorI could ive around. I took Tysabri. And then CellCept but continued to become more severely disabled. My disease had transitioned.
I was afraid that I was going to become beidden. I turned to reading the latest research using podmed.gov I knew that brains afflicted with MS, overtime, shrank. I therefore went, every night, reading the latest medical research about the diseaseswhich brains shrank. These diseases were Huntington's, Parkison's and Alzheimer's. I saw thatall three conditions,the mitochonia do not work well, leading to shrinking brains.
With more searching, I found studieswhich mice's brains andtheir mytochonia had been protected. Using fish oil, creatine and coenzyme Q. I translated those mouse sized doses into human sized ones and began my first round of self experimentation. The rapidity of my declined slowed and I was very grateful. But I was still declining. Next I discovered the Institute for Functional Medicine.
And through their continuing medical eduion course, Neuroprotection, a functional medicine approach to commonand uncommon neurologic synomes, I learned more brain cell biology andwhat I could do to protect mine. This is some of what I learned. We have a billion cellsour brains, with ten trillion connections. All of that connective wiring must be insulated with something called myelin. And multiple sclerosis damages myelin. In order to make healthier vast myelin, your brain needs a lot of B vitamins.
In particular vitamin B1, which is thiamine, B9 which is folate, B12 which is cobalamin. It also needs omega3 fatty acids and iodine. This is a sinapse. Those beautiful golden ops are the neurotransmitters. For your brain to make neurotransmitters, it needs a lot of sulfur and vitamin B6, which is pyridoxine.
