We are now on week 10 of the current course, covering The Oxidative Stress test. This is also known as Dry Blood Analysis where a slide is applied to a pinprick of blood 8 times to get 8 layers on the slide. The sample is left to dry and then viewed under the microscope.
White areas that are often seen in the dry blood sample (as above) that look like holes in the sample are soft clots called polymerized protein puddles (PPPs) these are associated with free radical damage/oxidative stress and toxins.
PPPs may vary in size, ranging from small white dots to larger lakes or rivers. They indicate the degree of tissue health and are associated with free radical damage/oxidative stress and toxins.
The shape and size of PPPs indicate the nature of the condition.
Round PPPs that are clear on the inside indicate irritations and inflammation (usually accompanied by pain in the area affected) whereas large, jagged PPPs with crystals indicate degenerative conditions.
PPPs of approximately 2 microns (pinpoints) are related to hypersensitivities and allergic conditions. These usually appear as a “snowstorm” and often throughout the sample.
PPPs of 30 microns are seen in association with physical, mental and emotional stress. These occur primarily in the centre of the sample.
PPPs of 40 microns and larger are indicative of degenerative conditions (when they are not round and clear).
The larger the PPPs and the greater the number the more serious the condition.
When PPPs are observed in deeper layers it indicates chronic conditions.
When PPPs appear localized in a specific area in the sample (not throughout) it indicates localization of the problem in the body, rather than systemic conditions.
When large PPPs are observed throughout the sample in all the areas, it indicates toxicity and advanced degenerative conditions.
In The Oxidative Stress Test (Dry Blood Analysis) a lot can be learned by the size, the shape and the position of the PPP’s.
