The Mighty Mitochondria

A big part of your energy comes from a tiny part of your body –the mitochondria. Most of the cells in the body contain thousands of mitochondria, known as the powerhouse of the cell. These little gems create energy through a series of complex chemical reactions. Perhaps you remember studying the Krebs cycle in school? That’s one of those processes.

Think of the mitochondria as little energy factories, so as you might imagine, your energy level is directly correlated with your mitochondria function. For optimum function, you need hydration, sufficient electrolytes, great sleep and great nutrition with the proper nutrients. All of these good health practices help keep your powerhouses in tip-top condition. If the mitochondria are not humming like a well-oiled engine, your energy can be drained and make you feel like you are plodding through your day.

Mitochondria are certainly powerhouses, yet are still vulnerable. Mitochondria can become damaged, and there are often hidden issues that can cause that damage. . Learn more about the five main factors that cause this damage in Friday’s newsletter. I’ll explain why proper nutrition, and detoxing, are so very important.

After leaving the Marines Corps, Jamie obtained a double major B.S. in Law Enforcement and History. Pursuing a career in Federal Law Enforcement, Jamie was selected as an Intern for the United States Marshals Service, and subsequent recruitment to a “Three Letter” agency. It was then, when Jamie received “the call”, that the Lord began testing and affirming the genuineness of his faith.

After again returning to Iraq in 2014 to serve the Christians suffering under the savage campaign of ISIS, Jamie and his wife Virginia were compelled to surrender their paradigm and follow the Lord into full-time ministry.

“The Mission of Omega Dynamics is this: to teach, train and equip “Those with ears to hear” to stand anew in their rightful place as more than conquerors in a kingdom that cannot be shaken…this generation is literally, eternally dying for us to”
