If you liked this show, you should follow Dr Ritamarie.

In this show you’ll learn:

  • What mitochondria are and what they do for you.
  • Why people lose muscle mass as they age and when they diet.
  • The importance of mitochondrial function in cellular energy, weight regulation, sports, aging, detoxification, and retaining muscle mass.


The preservation of skeletal muscle mass is central to maintaining mobility and quality of life with aging and also impacts on our capacity to recover from illness and injury.  When you go through periods of time when you don’t use your muscles, this also creates a change in cellular and molecular processes in your muscles.  Mitochondrial changes also contribute to muscle aging.

Join Dr. Ritamarie, Dr. Alan Miller, and Dawn Aubrey, CCN, as they discuss the changes that occur in aging muscles and the determining potential relevance of the mitochondrial theory of aging.

Dr. Alan Miller graduated from the prestigious Bastyr University, and has 25 years of experience as a naturopathic physician in the areas of clinical practice, research, writing, education, formulation, product development, and technical support.
