This study shows how mitochondrial activity is directly involved in the deteriorating functioning of our primary energy metabolic system according to the study's primary author Kai C. Sonntag, MD, PhD,
"The observation that LOAD fibroblasts had a deficiency in the mitochondrial metabolic potential and an increase in the glycolytic activity to maintain energy supply is indicative of failing mitochondria and fits with current knowledge that aging cells increasingly suffer from oxidative stress that impairs their mitochondrial energy production".
Quietmind Fdn. is now conducting clinical trials with near infrared light therapy to help repair and sustain mitochondria in the brain to stop and help reverse dementia's cognitive and behavioral symptoms. Call 610-940-0488 for details.
This is a good summary of current alternative approaches to treatment of brain injury.
They mention neurofeedback and photobiomodulation using near infrared laser and LED devices. Quietmind Fdn. is listed as one of the providers on the BART Foundation's website.
