About this course

The Cell Danger Response is a triggering mechanism that activates our body’s self defence mechanisms. Interestingly, mitochondria and ATP are central to this process. Mitochondria are able to sense and respond to changes in the cellular environment by sensing safety and danger. In this way, mitochondria act as fundamental regulators of the Cell Danger Response. 

When a cell encounters a toxin or pathogen it may begin to leak ATP into the bloodstream. This extracellular ATP is normally only found inside the cell and it initiates the first phase of the Cell Danger Response when released. Then, the mitochondria shuts down energy production and scrambles outside of the cell to signal the immune system.

Metabolism, inflammation, immunity, microbiome, brain function, sleep pattern and behavioural changes are activated by many different kinds of threats. These threats can be as diverse as an infection, poisoning, physical or psychological trauma, but still trigger the same sickness behaviour. At a cellular level, the Cell Danger Response cannot be turned off until the cell receives an “all clear” signal. Until then, the Cell Danger Response remains stuck in a repeating loop that blocks further healing in an attempt to eradicate perceived danger. This can lead to long-term suffering, disability and chronic disease. Only when a cell perceives safety can it heal completely.

Join Dr Sandeep Gupta as he explores the new science of Cell Danger Response, that connects environmental health with mitochondria and the rising tide of chronic illness.

Dr Sandeep Gupta

Dr Sandeep Gupta is a specialist general practitioner (RACGP) and has invested many years training in integrative medicine. He was awarded a Fellowship of the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM) in 2008 and a Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) in 2010. He also has physician training certification with Dr Ritchie Shoemaker in chronic inflammatory illness and a Masters of Nutrition with Dr Gabriel Cousens. Other major influences include William Wolcott CN, Robert Marshall PhD, and Dietrich Klinghardt MD PhD.

Dr Gupta has an advocacy role in integrative medicine, with a prior position on the ACNEM board, and a current position on the Australian Integrative Medicine Association (AIMA) advocacy committee. He is a founding board member for the Australian Chronic Infectious & Inflammatory Disease Society (ACIIDS) and a founding diplomate member for the International Society of Environmentally Acquired Illness (ISEAI).

Dr Gupta strives to walk his talk in his own life, keeps up to date with current developments in the field and genuinely aims to approach all clients with respect, service and empathy. He believes in listening and the validation of an individual’s journey are some of the most powerful gifts any practitioner can give.
