Episode - Restoring Mitochondrial Health with Laura Frontiero


Restoring Mitochondrial Health with Laura Frontiero

If you want to optimize your health, you need healthy mitochondria.

Joining me to talk about mitochondrial health is functional medicine Nurse Practitioner Laura Frontiero. Laura has served thousands of patients as a Nurse Practitioner over the last 22 years, and her work in the health industry marries both traditional and functional medicine.

Laura’s online and virtual wellness programs help her high-performing clients boost energy, renew mental focus, feel great in their bodies, and be productive again. She believes that to create optimal wellness, we first need to identify and clear the root causes of our health problems, usually toxins, chronic infections, and stress; then eliminate inflammation, and restore gut and mitochondria health.

Laura’s signature system helps reclaim what she calls the “Energy Edge.” For each person, it’s a unique journey back to their peak mental, physical, and biological performance. When your body is bio-optimized and operating at your “Energy Edge,” you are unstoppable, productive, happy, and fulfilled.

In this episode, we talk about why Laura’s transitioned to specializing in functional medicine, the numerous critical functions of mitochondria, how you might be damaging your mitochondria, what you can do to restore mitochondrial function, the connection between mitochondrial damage and chronic health issues, testing for mitochondrial damage, detoxification protocols, and more.
