Oxidative Stress – The Physiological Source of Stress
What is oxidative stress (OS)? Think of it as our mere mortal Kryptonite.
Oxidative stress comes from within our bodies, as it is a natural by-product of our energy production in the mitochondria of our cells. And, it is also an unfortunate by product from our environment, exposures & the thousands of choices we make on a daily basis. Oxidative stress can lead to chronic inflammation. It is widely accepted that OS is at the root of all of our chronic illnesses including cancers, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, neurodegenerative, Alzheimer’s…..and yes…..depression.
Damage to the cells that causes an imbalance, causing the cell to not function at its full potential, or even worse – malfunction and start reproducing incorrectly, out of control, destroying healthy cells …aka….cancer.
Oxidative stressors attack relentlessly through out the day. What we perceive as “stress” is a by product of physiological, OS. How we react to stress often further oxidatively stresses our cells…….
- being sedentary under the disguise of relaxation
- poor food choices
- yes, over exercise
- excessive mental stress
A very long list
Cell-Being: Think of Cell Being as the ultimate conductor of life. Our cells confront the daily cacophony of life, and orchestrate the musicians, our cells, into the symphony of life.
Cell-Being to Well-Being….the path to health, the path to providing employees what they need to perform at their very best. Stress management needs to come from the cell, not preaching to people what to do and how to think.
When we talk about true health and stress management- we need to go right down to the very center of our being – cell health, our cell-being…all 70 trillion!! Let’s get down to the cell. Strengthen the cell, strengthen our health. Strengthen every aspect of our health and performance. If our cells are misfiring, every aspect of our being is in jeopardy
Health literacy: Dig Deeper
Chronic illnesses are clobbering us both in terms of health and financial health. We need to dig deeper in our corporate programs, and educate our employees on combatting OS.
