Are you at risk of cardiovascular disease? Special Offer to discover your level of Oxidative stress!

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the biggest killer of Australians at present. Doctors currently use cholesterol and blood pressure as the gold standard tests to measure and treat risk. However many people suffer heart attacks and strokes with no history of problems on either count. Doreen Schwegler has recently attended from a 3 days Congress of Natural medicine where guest integrative cardiologists from USA spoke about how utilising natural support can impact on CVD risk factors. The 3 main drivers of CVD (keeping in mind that there are over 140 known risk factors including family history, sedentary lifestyle, being male or post-menopausal etc) are Oxidative stress, Inflammation and insulin resistance. We can measure inflammation via a GP test (called hsCRP); and insulin resistance is reflected in problems losing weight (especially around the midline) as well as with a blood test. Oxidative stress, on the other hand, is a silent killer and is not measured by routine pathology screening.

All Degrees of Health has recently invested in a state-of-the-art, $6,5000 TGA approved testing device (called a CR3000) that measures your current levels of oxidative stress and defence. It costs $80 to measure  both your levels of defence (FORD) and ‘attack’ (FORT). High levels of oxidative stress are not only a CVD risk factor, but also is involved with compromised pregnancy outcomes, fertility issues, accelerated ageing, weight management, immune problems and as an indicator of serious diseases.

A special offer if to have a baseline and follow up measurement (ie pre and post treatment) for $145 ($15 saving)
