Guest Bio: Petra Dorfsman, ND, CNS, IFMCP
unnamedPetra Dorfsman, ND, CNS, IFMCP, is a board-certified naturopathic doctor with a practice that focuses on individuals experiencing chronic health challenges. Petra practices functional medicine –– a distinct form of patient-centered healthcare –– which first and foremost seeks to determine the most efficient and effective paths for patient empowerment and healing.

Petra has a deep appreciation of the importance of the interconnected nature of the body’s systems and the physiological, biochemical, and pathological processes. She diligently follows the latest, and most rigorous research and medical knowledge. It takes,on average, 17 years for established scientific research findings to be adopted in conventional clinical care, Petra brings it to her practice now.

She is currently seeing patients at Elysia Life Care in Santa Monica, CA, and she is a cancer care clinician for the Center of Deuterium Depletion.
How Deuterium Depletion Prevents Chronic Diseases
Deuterium is a naturally-occurring stable isotope of hydrogen that has an extra neutron. It’s present in all water on the planet, but has steadily increased in concentration.

Most drinking water now has a deuterium concentration of 150 parts per million (ppm). When we ingest deuterium, the hydrogen molecules in our body are replaced by deuterium.

When deuterium levels in the body rise above 130 ppm, it causes metabolic crowding and mitochondria dysfunction. Roughly 80-95 percent of all chronic disease are caused by mitochondria dysfunction.

Dr. Petra Dorfsman explains the rise of deuterium, how it affects the body, and how to keep it in check. Listen in as Dr. Petra and Dr. Holly Lucille discuss deuterium depletion.
