Fibromyalgia and Mitchochondria - Let's Take A Deeper Look

Posted on November 22 2015

I recently enjoyed a high-level seminar with instructors David M. Brady, ND, DC, CCN and Todd R. LePine, MD, both leaders in Functional Medicine for many years. The first section was on In-depth knowledge and clinical processes to correctly assess a patient for true Fibromyalgia. “80% of diagnosed fibromyalgia cases are diagnosed incorrect.” – Dr. Brady explained. Have a diagnosis of fibromyalgia? – It may be time for another assessment from a different perspective.


The second section explored root cause determination utilizing lab tests of organic minerals and essential cellular components of mitochondria. Did you know that your mitochondria, which are the power houses of all your cells, have only your mother’s DNA?


A favorite diagnostic test that Bright Path Wellness recommends is the Organix Panel by Genova Diagnostics. It provides vital nutritional information including: functional vitamin & mineral status, amino acid insufficiencies, oxidative damage, antioxidant need, detoxification capacity, neurotransmitter metabolites, mitochondrial energy production, methylation sufficiency, and markers for bacterial and yeast overgrowth. Determining root causes of disease and other health conditions at the cellular level. This way a personalized and targeted treatment plans can be provided to address each patient’s needs.
