Layered Blood Oxi Data Stress Test is when we place a few blood drops onto a slide. We then let it dry and view it under the microscope.
In itself, live blood screening with microscopy is not a diagnostic procedure. However, it can often point you in the right direction to take for further testing in other areas. We view this area very much like rings of a tree. We simply want to view the "terrain" of the blood to catch a glimpse of the overall deficiencies or overloads in the system. This gives us a great snapshot of how your body has functioned in its lifetime.
Sometimes also called the Oxidative Stress Test or Clot Retraction Blood Test this differs from live blood testing in that it uses a dried sample of blood rather than the living blood. It originated in Europe in the 20’s and was first introduced to the USA in the 1930’s. Recent research conducted in several U.S. universities and by many independent researchers has validated this test, not to mention over 70 years of use by various practitioners in clinics around the world.
It accurately assesses the level of free radical activity or oxidative stress. Excessive levels of free radical activity are associated with degenerative disease conditions such as cancer, heart disease, strokes, memory loss, arthritis and cataracts. This test also indicates the presence of heavy metal, bowel toxicity, inflammation, vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Its simplicity alone makes it a truly remarkable test that we use to screen for all of the above conditions and more.
