Pick a chronic health issue associated with mitochondrial dysfunction and write up an integrative treatment plan. With the plan, also include lab markers which would provide information if the individual is improving with the plan after 6 months. These specific labs would be taken before the treatment protocol and 6 months into the protocol. Discuss why you've chosen these lab markers for this specific condition. This assignment will be broken into 2 sections, "Introduction and Integrative Plan" and "Article Summaries".
Introduction and Integrative Plan: Instructions/Format
This section will have 3 parts. The integrative plan, write up of recommended lab markers, and a brief introduction to the disease.
Write up 3 paragraph (350-450 words) introduction of the condition and discuss how the condition is associated with mitochondrial dysfunction.
Write an integrative plan addressing mitochondrial dysfunction of the disease. You don't need to explain reasoning for the treatment or the specific mechanism. This will be included in the "article summary" portion of the assignment.
Write up of recommend labs for the patient to be taken at the start of the protocol and after 6 months. Include a detailed description for why you're recommended these specific labs.
Article Summaries: Instructions/Format
You will briefly summarize each article on each diet/food/nutrient/life style modification/etc. you included in your plan. If a study included multiple treatment options, then please discuss them in one summary. You will be required to summarize minimum 5 articles.
Summarize the main ideas from the article using your own words, not those of the article author (synopsis).
Must include mechanism of action for each treatment option. How does this treatment support mitochondrial function.
Here are some other options to include in your summary. (PICO)
