Mitochondria are small, free-floating organelles inside a cell. These specialized structures can be found in animals, plants and fungi. They contain an outer membrane, an inner, layered membrane called a cristae and fluid called the matrix. The are often referred to as “cellular power plants”.
Their role is to convert energy in food into energy a cell can use. In this way, they act as miniature batteries to power the cells. This is found in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and is the energy unit used as a source of chemical energy in almost every process within the human body. ATP is the mediating force behind the thousands of metabolic processes needed to sustain life. The process of creating this energy is known as cellular respiration.
The role of Mitochondrial Dysfunction in chronic disease may be extremely significant according to recent research findings. Since the Mitochondrion is the energy organelle that is responsible for providing cellular energy, if these organelles become impaired, there is evidence that many disease conditions can arise. Symptoms begin to manifest such as fatigue, loss of appetite, and inflammation. Depending on the level of impaired cellular respiration, specific disease processes can also arise, such as:
Mitochondrial disease can be at the root of any disease that results in energy deficiencies. Mitochondrial dysfunction may be one of the largest contributors to chronic low-level inflammation, which can result in heart disease, diabetes, cancer, respiratory ailments, stroke and Alzheimer's disease. Each of these 7 deadly diseases is either caused by or contributed to by Mitochondrial disease.
The Mitochondria are responsible for keeping our cells healthy and productive. When the Mitochondria is not performing as it should, the cells become stressed, due to a protective cellular response that has not perfected itself. This protective mechanism attempts to produce peroxides at a high enough level to clean out the mitochondrial membrane and restore normal oxidative processes within the cell.
However, this intended protective response fails to produce peroxides at a level that allows for “signaling” to occur. Ironically, the formation of oxygen species like hydrogen peroxide, at moderate levels can actually cause disease rather than reverse it.
In general terms, we refer to this faulty protective response as “oxidative stress”, which can be understood as an impaired cellular response that exposes the body to a full array of illnesses that exploit weakened energy metabolism.
This important understanding of disease at a cellular level is at the core of the BX Protocol™ and the BX Energy Catalyst™. Health restoration must begin at a cellular level in order to fully and effectively treat disease.
My disease (COPD) had reached end-stage, but...after completing the 1-year BX program, I live a normal life! I have not used an inhaler in 8 months. I have eliminated ALL prescription medications (including my inhalers and Prednisone). In fact, I cancelled my home oxygen delivery several months ago, on my birthday. I have restful sleep, and I exercise strenuously every morning and I enjoy outings with my wife, family and friends. I haven’t felt this good in years!

My blood sugar at night is usually between 200-300, and in the morning between 150-250. Today, six days into the program, my blood sugar this morning was 86 and has not gone above 200 for the entire day -without any meds or insulin! I feel fantastic, the mental fog has lifted and I am sleeping better! I will be taking my second BX dose on Thursday, July 11. I am thrilled with this program and looking forward to seeing how much better I get over time!
At the age of 22, I was diagnosed with mitochondrial dysfunction, chronic fatigue, lyme disease, mono, and type 2 diabetes. My mom and I traveled all over the United States seeking various treatments. I tried everything: acupuncture, stem cell injections, ozone therapy, HCG injections, infrared saunas, etc.. The BX Protocol has improved my health the most. I am a true believer in the BX Protocol because it has changed my life for the better.
I want to express my appreciation for your help over this past year in my life. As you can observe, in my case data I have been cancer free 6 months after initiating the BX Protocol. That brings me to being cancer-free for over 7 months now. Thank you for all of your interest, support and work on my behalf. Excellent health is paradoxically a gift and a full-time job! I delight in the gift; and will work on keeping it.
As I write this, it is 7 months since I began the program. I feel well! The old lethargy and inertia are gone. My joints are better. My vision is better. My self-esteem has returned. I love being with my family. I love being with my friends. I am happy. I smile and I laugh. I am having fun. I am relaxed. I am optimistic. My OCD has vanished. I fall asleep easily and I get at least 7 hours of sleep a night. It’s amazing! It’s a miracle. My prayers were answered.
