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.
