Health Epidemic of the 21st Century
Responsibilities, heavy workload, financial obligations or emotional problems…
Day-to-day situations and the pressures of our modern lifestyle cause stress.
Everyone has their own level of tolerance; what may be overwhelming for one person is someone else’s challenge. However, health issues arise when stress starts acting as a negative force, or when it becomes chronic or severe.
Long-term exposure to stress often leads to complications, such as anxiety, sleep troubles, cognitive impairments, or even risk factors for cardiovascular disorders and poor immune function.

Did you know ?
Contrary to popular belief, stress is not the bitter fruit of modern life. It is above all the consequence of a primitive brain mechanism as a reaction to perceived danger: the fight-or-flight response.
For the prehistoric man, the approach of a sabre-tooth tiger was undoubtedly a source of stress, but for the modern man, a simple phone ringing can sometimes have the same effect with one major difference: while our short-term response mirrors that of the animal kingdom, our long-term responses differ dramatically.
Emotional or oxidative stress ?
Stress is a consequence of multiple social, psychological, but also biological factors
(1) When the brain perceives that a given situation may be stressful, it sends alarm messages via nerves and hormones to prepare the body for the fight-or-flight response.
(2) Among the numerous signals, several result in the secretion of molecules of the corticoids family, responsible for a disruption of the oxidative processes.
(3) The resulting oxidative damage significantly impacts health and day-to-day well-being. But it does not stop there!
(4) Consisting of 60% of fat and consuming more than 20% of the body’s total oxygen, our brain is highly susceptible to oxidative stress. For this reasons, several studies suggest a causal role of oxidative stress in anxiety.
