The Truth About Oxidative Stress

Dear Beloved Patients,

We hope everyone had a safe and relaxing weekend. My video this week is about oxidative stress. Oxidative stress happens when the body does not have enough antioxidants to combat cellular breakdown. Cellular breakdown (often caused by free radicals), is a naturally occurring process. Think of the way an apple turns brown after being sliced in half. The flesh of the apple turns brown over time because it’s exposed to oxygen. This same thing happens in your body. However, if the body has too many free radicals and not enough antioxidants, oxidative stress can occur. Antioxidants can prevent oxidative stress by fighting those free radicals for you!

Watch the video below to learn more about the effect that oxidative stress has on your body and how, in the company of our care, antioxidants can greatly benefit your wellness journey.

Dr. Daniel Fedeli Daniel J. Fedeli, DC, PC, established The Balancing Center in 1987 to meet the increasing demand for alternative healthcare in Chicago and offer access to a different perspective on health and wellness. He believes in techniques that re-establish balance in order to promote the incredibly powerful resources that lie within the human body. His noninvasive techniques work with the body, optimizing performance and function, in order to alleviate pain and stress. Dr. Fedeli combines the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) method with a wide array of forward-thinking techniques designed to release physical holding patterns, and ease the effect of traumas, memories, and emotions on the body’s critical functions. Carefully selected treatments, such as energy synchronization, neuro-emotional clearing, stabilizing exercise, and movement therapies are used in conjunction with spinal adjustments to remove factors adversely affecting the body’s ability to restore and maintain long-term stability.
