Mercola: Optimizing Mitochondrial Function With Intermittent Hypoxia – Interview with Dr. Arkadi Prokopov

Mercola video: Dr. Arkadi Prokopov, a Russian integrative medicine physician who specializes in hypoxic training and mitochondrial medicine. Optimizing your mitochondrial function is, of course, one of the most important strategies you can do to optimize your cellular energy, so it’s at the core of almost everything that you do to improve your health. • Hypoxic training is successfully being used in the treatment of diseases such as asthma, high blood pressure, chronic inflammation and chronic infections, all of which are rooted in mitochondrial dysfunction. • The scientific application of intermittent hypoxic treatment started in Russia in the late 1970s. Early research showed it was radioprotective. When you reduce the partial pressure of oxygen in tissues that are being radiated, there’s a significantly protective effect on healthy tissues. Tumors are not protected, however, because they’re already hypoxic. • Intermittent hypoxia takes place during embryonic development. Scientists now understand that this is a powerful mechanism that controls the quality of mitochondria. • One of the mechanisms that helps explain the benefits of hypoxia is that it raises your carbon dioxide (CO2) level, which in turn increases oxygen circulation and uptake by your cells. • One simple ways to stimulate your mitochondrial function through intermittent hypoxia is to intermittently hold your breath. In clinical practice, oxygen-depleted air is intermittently administered using an hypoxic generator. The latest models include biofeedback, and allow for all sorts of protocols to be administered.
