The Spectrum of Health with Dr. Christine Schaffner

Feb 8, 2024

In this week’s episode, I spoke with my colleague Dr. Hemal Patel. We explored mitochondrial health, including what happens to mitochondria during chronic illness, and the concepts of mitochondrial autophagy and biogenesis. Dr. Patel gave an overview of his innovative new mitochondrial efficiency test (mescreen), including the different panels and what they measure. We went through my own test results, analyzing areas that were out of balance like my high baseline respiration. Dr. Patel provided his insights on what may have contributed to my results, like prolonged stress, and offered potential solutions to support mitochondrial health such as specific peptides, light therapy, breathing techniques, and more.
