Dry Layer Oxidative-Stress Audit
A drop of blood is placed on a glass slide in a series of layers and allowed to dry. It is then positioned under a microscope and conveyed to a computer monitor for evaluation.
Once clotted, a healthy person’s blood will show a red area with interconnected black lines of proteins referred to as a “fibrin network”. An abnormal or reduced fibrin network can be an indicator of poor digestion and assimilation of food proteins as well as malabsorption of other nutrients and may also indicate pancreatic dysfunction.
Large white “lakes” between blood cells may also be noted during this test. These are called “PPP”, or “Polymerized Protein Puddles”. They reveal elevated oxidative stress levels from free radical damage which causes dis-ease in the body. Since free radical activity causes chronic inflammation and chronic inflammation is a factor in nearly all diseases, this test can be used to determine and monitor the severity and improvement of your health issues.
While a darkened outer layer may indicate the possibility of heavy metal toxicity, a darkened middle may communicate signs of a “dirty bowel” to a trained professional.
This information and more is determined as you sit and discuss your findings with your tester. This data will help to determine a personalized health care plan to put you on the path toward more robust health.
