    #58: Why and How To Measure For This Cell DNA Damaging Type of Stress

    #58: Why and How To Measure For This Cell DNA Damaging Type of Stress

    In today's episode, Maria shares information that can be a game-changer for you, especially if you want to age beautifully, prevent chronic diseases and help your body defend itself against starving molecules who love to steal electrons from healthy ones. Ultimately, these guys create chaos in your body.

    Maria tells you about a specific type of stress that could be damaging your cell DNA. If you knew you could test for that, would you?

    The typical ‘trial and error’ or “do this for that” approach gets exhausting, doesn't it? Investing in understanding what’s happening at a cellular level and then implement and execute a personalized health and lifestyle plan that brings you lasting results might be the right step.

    Enjoy!
