Oxidative Stress Analysis
Type of test: In-House
Offered by: Family Naturopathic Clinic
Oxidative stress testing is used to assess equilibrium between oxidative damage and antioxidant reserve. It is necessary to address the reserve capacity that provides protection, the enzymes that quench the free radicals, and evaluate the damage that free radical production has already caused.
This nutritional test can help practitioners identify underlying causes and perpetuating factors for many clinical disorders and help to customize specific treatment programs.
Evidence is accumulating that oxidative stress is involved in many pathological processes, including:
✓ Rheumatoid arthritis
✓ Macular degeneration
✓ Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
✓ Neurodegenerative diseases (Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s)
✓ Diabetes mellitus
✓ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
✓ Environmental sensitivity
