Mitochondrial Therapy

What are Mitochondria?


Mitochondria are known as the ‘power houses of the cell’. Mitochondria are the parts of the cell that convert the sugar, fat and protein that we eat into a form of energy currency, ATP (Adenosine Triphoshate), that the body can use to carry on living. Every living thing is made up of cells and mitochondria are responsible for producing around 90% of the chemical energy that cells need to survive. Without energy there can be no life! It is therefore easy to see how disease is the outcome of failed mitochondria.

Mitochondria are also responsible for producing chemicals that the body needs to break down waste products and recycle some of the waste products to save energy. Sadly, our mitochondria starts to decline from around the age of 26.


What is the History of Mitochondrial Therapy?


Mitochondrial therapy was initially devised by Russian scientists Dr Kucera & Dr.Bravasky, working on the Mars Project. The astronauts going into space would have been subjected to extreme ageing of the cells, 8 years in fact for every year they were in space! They could not have this happen or else they would run the risk of the astronauts becoming sick with degenerative disease as a result of accelerated ageing. This was the birth of Mitochondrial Therapy, a way to prevent the ageing process and with that came the realisation that disease could be prevented.


Who was Responsible for Bringing this Therapy to the UK?


Dr.Kucera, MD, a renowned medical doctor who specialises in mitochondrial and anti-ageing medicine. He was the only Czech MD who had worked at NASA to train astronauts for flights to Mars. His pioneering work has effectively improved the health status of patients with chronic degenerative diseases associated with the ageing process. Sheri Dixon, a nutritional consultant found Dr Kucera and through her own recovery back to health brought this therapy to light in the UK in 2010. This therapy is now healing 4500 patients in the UK alone.


What are the Benefits of this Therapy?


  • Counteracts anti-ageing processes that involve the mitochondria, oxidation and glycation
  • Enhances sports performance, endurance, and recovery
  • Increases life span
  • Protects against heart disease
  • Slows the progress of disease
  • Slows cognitive decline in the hope to prevent onset of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s

How Does It Work?

Mitochondrial therapy is really easy to do and with fantastic results!

We start by doing a 5-minute heart rate variability (HRV) test whilst you relax in a chair. The signals from your heart are measure in milliseconds and the reading produced by the test offers information on how well your autonomic nervous system, also known as the master regulatory system, is functioning with the demands of daily life. The autonomic nervous system ensures that your body is balanced and healthy.

Your reading can indicate whether you are producing optimal energy, whether your immune and hormonal systems are functioning optimally, whether your body is able to lose weight and whether you are adapting to the total sum of all of your current daily demands and stressors.

Based on your individual reading, we recommend dietary supplement formulas, designed for and used by Russian cosmonauts. These supplements do not treat anything! Instead, they support the body’s regeneration at a systemic level.

Diseases that respond well to Mitochondrial Therapy


  • Ageing
  • Allergies
  • Alzheimer
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Asperger’s syndrome
  • Asthma
  • Autism
  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Epilepsy
  • Degeneration
  • Dementia
  • Diabetes

When will I see results?


This process of regeneration takes on average between 12-20 weeks, but in some cases it can take longer. The HRV test is usually repeated after 2 months to determine the effectiveness of the therapy.
