The HLB Bradford blood test can be the fast, affordable, meaningful and almost painless notice. This blood test has been developed over many decades and continuously optimized to detect the effects of free radicals (reactive-oxygen-species = ROS) on the immune system and metabolism in the cells.
Why should such a test be performed?
The test can …
• determine if a metabolic change is detected
• assess the supply of oxygen to the cells
• notice changes in cells may be noticed years before the outbreak of a disease
• predict the onset of a serious illness prevented by appropriate preventive therapies (eg ulceration)
• be a chronic course identifier and prevent illness even before the outbreak
• investigate whether performed therapies are effective (control tests show whether change of the blood with continuous therapy)
What is this origin of these tests?
Already in the last two centuries, prominent academics engaged with the condition of the blood and used their observations for diagnosis. So we watch for. B. T. W. Jones and A. Trousseau’s discovery of the mechanisms of blood coagulation and an increased blood coagulation in cancer patients. P. Virchow dealt with thrombosis, embolism, studying the coagulation properties and clumps of material taken from the fingertip blood. Heitan took first evaluations on dried blood drops and its diagnostic assessment before 1920.
Much later, the biochemist and physicist Prof. Dr. Robert W. Bradford began with his studies. He refined the tests of his colleagues, and he succeeded in 1979 in providing evidence that free radicals (ROS) can greatly affect our health. He found that the different formations and configurations of various diseases or metabolic disturbances can be assigned through dry blood.
What do “free radicals” do (ROS)?
Every cell in the body needs oxygen for its metabolism in addition to energy this is fed via respiration and blood circulation. In this supply it comes to the creation of “free radicals” (ROS) generated by oxidation processes (chemical reactions) caused by oxygen and enzymes. Many of these ROS are useful, but other ROS damage our bodies. Normally, they are broken down or intercepted by certain enzymes in the body, but when the immune system is weakened or disrupted or certain enzymes are lacking, the consequences for our body can be sickening: Red blood cells be decimated, cell membranes and other components of the cells as well as important Enzymes are destroyed, the intracellular immune system is weakened.
If this condition persists for too long, so a variety of diseases can occur, for example the following:
• Autoimmune diseases
• Skin diseases
How is the HLB Bradford blood test performed?
With a lancet, a previously disinfected fingertip is punctured. The emerging drop of blood is placed 5 times on a slide in uniform spacing. This produces 5 thin films of dried blood, whose thickness decreases from drop to drop. When the blood is completely dried on the substrate, it is evaluated under a microscope.
What can you see in these dried blood drops?
• the unity or disunity of the film (the surface of the drop of blood). If holes can be seen that show up bright and white under the microscope, this shows where the burden of ROS are located. These holes are caused by the effect of the oxygen-bound “free radicals”. Through them, a change is effected in the metabolism of cells, so that the normally close together lying erythrocytes are torn apart. These holes are also called lacunae. Thus, the test shows the extent of the damage caused by free radicals.
• the location of the lacunae
• the nature of the fibrin which keeps the blood film reticulate together
• changes in shape and thickening of the Fibrin matrixes, since such changes may give evidence of toxic stress or liver disorders
• the form and nature of the external borders of the blood drop. Normally there is a sharp boundary. If the edges are flowed, frayed or diluted, this may be an indication of vitamin C deficiency.
In addition, the test in the ongoing treatment is very useful to monitor courses of therapy. So you can already see during therapy whether these indications promise success.
