As the result of eight years of scientific research and development by physicists and doctors, a Dunedin chiropractic clinic is giving area residents a chance to learn their current state of health through antioxidant scanning, Global Newswire reported October 20th. According to the article, “Dunedin Chiropractor Offers Antioxidant Scanning as Part of a Comprehensive Wellness Plan,” the clinic uses a Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner to detect levels of a particular group of antioxidants essential to human health, thus allowing the chiropractors to evaluate the effectiveness of patients' current diet and nutrition supplementation programmes. Dr. Paul Raveling of the Raveling Chiropractic Centre commented, ‘These screenings give us a clear picture of what adjustments our patients need to make in order to enjoy better overall wellness.’ (http://globenewswire.com/news-release/2013/10/20/581651/10052709/en/Dunedin-Chiropractor-Offers-Antioxidant-Scanning-as-Part-of-Comprehensive-Wellness-Plan.html)
This inspired Yourwellness Magazine to likewise show readers the importance of antioxidants. Yourwellness Magazine noted, ‘Cells are little engines that drive nearly all of the processes in our bodies – including the ageing process!...As cells go about their daily business, they spark chemical reactions that can lead to free radicals being produced. Although our bodies make these molecules naturally, they are also found in the environment and can cause havoc. This is because they are unstable as they are missing important parts of their structure, so they try and fill this gap. But, instead of becoming stable they actually disrupt our cells making them become unstable. Experts believe that as well as ageing, they are behind serious wellness problems, like cancer. We can limit the effects and production of these molecules by eating antioxidants.’ (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/01/why-should-you-learn-about-anti-oxidants-to-look-younger/#sthash.4j8hVYTy.dpuf)
