This Webinar explores the important relationship between magnesium and glutathione and their role in mitochondrial and brain health

Join renowned US clinician, Dr Dan Kalish, as he presents key functional medicine principles to address mitochondrial and brain health.

Dr Kalish explores the interplay between the two critical nutrients, Magnesium and Glutathione and their impact on both mitochondrial health and brain health.

In this webinar you will learn  the following key integrative medicine concepts:

Mitochondria Health:

  • Learn how the enzymes we make cellular energy from can be disrupted by SNPs and how to apply functional medicine lab tests to analyze and correct these common problems
  • Discover the 3 most important nutrients for maintaining mitochondrial function and exact dosages for correcting their imbalances
  • See how the body responds to long-term stressors including toxin exposure and poor lifestyle habits with a reduction in mitochondrial populations that in turn leads to a hypometabolic state; these are our chronic fatigue and weight loss resistance patients
  • Understand how difficult-to-treat thyroid problems can be directly linked to mitochondrial energy production

Brain Health:

  • We’ll examine the stress-related and inflammatory-related lab markers that show neurotransmitter depletion
  • Learn about the key amino acids and co-factors required to balance the brain and effectively restore normal brain chemistry with lab-based data
  • Learn how the amino acids that improve brain function can impact other body systems and improve your patient’s health outcomes in a wide variety of ways
  • Stress, fatigue, anxiety and depression are often directly linked to poor neurotransmitter function we’ll discuss short- and long-term treatment strategies

Gain a practical understanding of the Glutathione/Magnesium Dyad

Dr Kalish shares his lab tests, protocols and investigation of relevant case studies.

You will gain valuable insights from Dr Kalish’s extensive clinical experience in the field of functional medicine.
