El Paso, TX. Chiropractor Dr. Alex Jimenez takes a look at chiropractors and how they can act as an antioxidant through their practice. The chiropractic practice truly works on the grounds that the work removes blockages to the body’s natural health and healing abilities, although most folks link chiropractors with pain management. This consists of removing pressure from nerves that relay signals from the brain to the organs and systems of the body.
In 2005, a landmark study published in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation (JVSR) found evidence that chiropractic care can reduce oxidative stress within the body.
Oxidative stress is the damage occurring when free radicals outnumber the body’s antioxidants. Oxidative stress damages all body cell components: lipids, proteins, and DNA.
Oxidative stress plays a job in a whole host of diseases and ailments: Alzheimer’s, rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, heart problems, Parkinson’s disease, disease, and many others.
Thiols are compounds within the body that act as antioxidants, reacting with free radicals to neutralize them. Serum amounts of thiols reported by scientists of Biomedical Diagnostic Research, Inc reflect DNA’s ability to mend itself and can be used to measure aging and disease status.
In a 2003 study published in the Journal of Anti-Aging Medicine, scientists found low serum thiol levels with nine distinct categories of disorder and human disease in people.
The study published in JVSR consisted of 76 participants: one group received short-term chiropractic care, a second group received long-term chiropractic care, and the 3rd group received no chiropractic care.
After qualifying for age, gender, and the usage of nutritional supplements, the healthy participants who received chiropractic care for 2 or more years had higher serum thiol levels than those with the disorder. Some of the chiropractic patients had serum thiol levels higher than what is linked with wellness, which is ordinary.
Chiropractor Dr. Christopher Kent explained: “Oxidative tension, metabolically creating free radicals, is a broadly accepted theory of how we age and grow ailment.”
”Going through life,“ we experience chemical, physical, and psychological stress. These pressures change the function of the body’s nervous system. We hypothesized that oxidative stress could affect DNA repair on a cellular level.”
“Chiropractic care seems to improve the power of the entire body to adapt to anxiety,” concluded Kent.
