DRY BLOOD ANALYSIS
Dry Layered Blood Analysis is sometimes referred to as the Oxidative Stress Test. This form of test differs from Live Blood Analysis in that it uses a dried sample of blood rather than living blood.
The procedure for the Dry Layer test is very simple. A drop of blood from the fingertip is placed on a specimen slide in a series of layers. After the layers dry, they are observed under the microscope.
Dry Layered Blood Analysis assesses the level of free radical activity or ‘ageing’ within the body. When free radicals attack cells, they become damaged and become compromised in their ability to function properly. This leads to a gradual slowing down or degeneration of cellular energy in the mitochondria or power house of the cell.
‘Reading’ the dry layers of the blood is like reading an ink blot. It can be very revealing as to the overall state of one’s health and internal functioning of the various organs and tissues within the body.
Each individual has a unique biological individuality and reacts to free radical damage in different ways. Free radical damage causes toxins (acids or alkalines) to build up in the various tissues and organs of the body which, if left untreated lead to specific patterns of dysfunction. These ‘body poisons’ greatly contribute to the process of ageing and degeneration within the body.
