Many illnesses and medical conditions are caused by an unhealthy lifestyle, poor diet and increasingly prominent environmental factors. Our unhealthy diet is often limited to fast food, ready meals and low-quality produce. We’re constantly rushing around between our jobs and family, turning things over in our mind and struggling to cope with the daily tasks that life throws our way.
Environmental factors like nicotine, UV radiation, medication, electronic smog and stress frequently cause the formation of “free radicals” in our body. These aggressive compounds are produced during numerous metabolic processes and energy generation. They’re an important part of the body’s defence mechanism, but they can also cause damage to our genetic material (DNA), cell membranes and body proteins.
So, it’s no wonder you feel bad after a hectic day. Days like this tend to pile up, and you end up being in a state of permanent stress for weeks, months and even years on end.
