OXIDATIVE STRESS

Updated: Jun 23, 2022

What is oxidative stress?


Oxidative stress is a process that occurs in our body due to an excess

of free radicals and a lack of antioxidants to counteract them. The

increase of these free radicals and oxygen in our body results in our

cells becoming oxidized, affecting their functions and damaging

them. The uncontrolled production of free radicals and the lack of

antioxidants to neutralize them damage molecules and alter cellular

processes, which can lead to serious diseases, such as Alzheimer's,

cancer or Parkinson's disease. A diet poor in antioxidants is therefore

one of the causes of oxidative stress.


Foods rich in antioxidants are broccoli, tomatoes, artichokes, carrots and dark chocolate. But food alone is not enough. There are also other factors that contribute significantly to its development. Environmental pollution, active and

passive smoking, excessive exposure to sunlight, excessive alcohol

consumption, the action of certain medications, exposure to toxic

substances or unbalanced physical activity are just some of these

factors that favor the proliferation of free radicals and, therefore,

oxidative stress.



What is disease according to Regenerative Medicine?


According to Dr. Marcos Mazzuka, director of the Regenerative

Medicine Clinic in Madrid, we do not get sick by chance. All disease

depends on our lifestyle, where we live, with whom we live, and what

thoughts direct our lives among many other factors. It is a

combination of events that produce an imbalance and wear. Like a

crack that gradually opens up.


And free radicals play a very significant role as they damage cell walls

and create a favorable field for the development of various diseases.

They produce a deterioration of the tissues and therefore favor the

appearance of different serious pathologies, including cardiovascular

diseases or even cancer, in addition to premature aging of the skin or

the appearance of different neurological disorders, and numerous

diseases related to aging.


Regenerative medicine attempts to reverse the oxidative process.


Some symptoms:


Progressive fatigue

Muscle and joint pain

Sleep problems

Gastrointestinal problems (gas, bloating etc.)

Endocrinological problems


Oxidative stress is not something that appears in the analysis or

routine controls. In order to diagnose it, an oxidative stress study is

done, where we can know the level of cellular damage, the amount of

toxins we have (plastics, pesticides, heavy metals, etc.) We can know

how is the balance of the intestinal flora, fundamental for the general

balance of health.


And with this information we can elaborate a health plan to

reverse the oxidative process. This is the reason why in all my

health programs I recommend to perform this type of

studies in specialized clinics or laboratories.


What if regenerative medicine were the medicine of the future?



You deserve a better life!

With gratitude
