I came across this test on the Right4eu website: Urine test with immediate results: shows the amount of stress on the body caused by free radicals. So it shows if you are getting enough anti-oxidants in your diet to prevent free-radical  damage to your cells.

So this test should show that your swami foods/ER4YT is doing the job.

Has anyone done the test? Did you make any changes to your diet after taking the test?

If you determine that your oxystress level is high, you can enter that information in the SWAMI laboratory data section. SWAMI will then adjust the diet for you.

Hi there,

Ok, so I just have a bit of a query in regards to this test. I ordered one of these and did it just before I started the SWAMI diet about 7 months ago, because I wanted to know whether my levels were high or not so I would know if I had to tick the box in SWAMI. As I suspected, my levels were the highest (based on the red colour that showed up, I had been struggling physically and health wise for about 6 months prior). Anyway, I have been strictly on my SWAMI diet now for about 7 months, I've noticed some improvements and it's been great. So I decided to order some supplements and see what difference they would make, and while I was at it thought I would check my free radical levels. Just received them all today and did the test. Now, I was expecting some sort of difference, even significant, with how well I have been eating. Etc. However, I had got the same result as last time. Now I know other factors effect these levels, but to still be at the highest level?! Im curious as to having to use 'first morning urine' as per the directions, because this is when your urine is most likely to be it's darkest colour for the day (if you're drinking plenty of water). And the instructions say to not take any vitamins the day before that might change the colour of your urine to make it darker, so clearly if this effects the reading, wouldnt it always come up with a more colorful reaction (making you continue to buy the test?)

Sorry for writing so much, any thoughts/experiences on this would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

Sheldon

I will admit up front that I do not know much about oxidative stress, however, recently I had a lot of testing done myself.  One of the areas tested was my levels of antioxidants.  Some of my levels are good, some are not, but from the report, here are the things that can help:

Antioxidants

Vitamins A, E, C, CoQ10, plant-based antioxidants, a-lipoic acid, and glutathione.  Despite being on the diet for over a year, my plant-based antioxidants, a-lipoic acid, and glutathione are still low.  I eat a lot of veggies, but apparently I need to eat more.  According to the report, "Antioxidants may be found in whole food sources (e.g. brightly colored fruits & vegetables, grean tea, turmeric) as well as nutriceuticals (e.g. resveratol, EGCG, lutein, lycopene, ginko, milk thistle, etc).

If you are interested in good sources of the other antioxidants listed above, please let me know and I will post them.

note that an oxystress test needs to be performed without having ingested alcohol the night before, or it invariably reads high!!!

I just did the Oxystress test myself (I have been on SWAMI for 3 months and all the Basic Vitamins as well as CoQ10, L-Carnitine ).  I have been juicing daily and eating more green veggies than I ever have in my life (including kale, collard greens, spinach, broccoli.  Plus berries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries) I juiced a whole bag of tangerines (all organic of course). I have been grinding flax seeds and taking flax seed oil with cultured cottage cheese (Nancy's) with my fruit smoothies in the morning to ensure I'm getting enough omega 3 fatty acids.  And I tested the highest for free radicals. I don't drink, smoke, or do any drugs (over the counter, prescription or otherwise).  I can't do green tea or coffee because of caffeine sensitivity (even decaffeinated green tea affects me).

What's next?  I really don't want the rapid aging and health problems that come with high free radical activity....and 3 months should be long enough to take care of that IF what I am doing is sufficient...which it obviously is not.

Suggestions?

3 months may not be long enough to totally heal.  There are problems that can take years to heal.  I know it is difficult to continue moving forward if you don't "see" the benefit in certain tests after a short period - we have grown used to a "microwave" society where things get done very quickly.  Unfortunately, the body doesn't always heal quickly, even with the best inputs.

I agree with some of the previous posters. 3 months really isn't a whole lot of time, especially not if you're undoing the damage of 50 years of "eating wrong for your type." I suggest you keep doing what you're doing and test again in about a year.

I'm also assuming that all the fruits and veggies you're consuming are neutral or beneficial for you personally. I'm not all that familiar with the A diet, but I do know that some of the foods you've been ingesting would not be OK for me personally (specifically the tangerines and blackberries.) It can't hurt to double-check your food list to make sure that all your anti-oxidants are coming from compliant sources.

Since you can't include green tea in your diet, you may need other herbs to increase your antioxidant intake. These could also be consumed in tea form, in place of green tea. I'm not sure which herbs would be best for you.

Being that sensitive might also be a showing of still 'work' to be done..

I wonder could a person not just take the color and odor of urine into consideration for a few month?  It will tell you if you are washing things out?? doe sthe test show that you are washing out? or that you are retaining anti oxi material??

The description in the sales page is not informative enough .. the inserts might explain better..

I think that drinking has a lot to do with output.. drinking water to excess also creates issues..

and then are ALL foods rated somewhere for anti oxidation effects like a calorie counter ??  maybe some items are way up or down on such a scale?  

Here are some links to learn more ...

Gerson Institute .fruits and veggies should create more balance, while MAYBE needing some low enemas to get rid of junk.. better /quicker elimination might be in order..   Just meandering.. I have no info on any except the last..

Here are some links to learn more ...

Dr Bernard Jensen.. Google it for a good place to start with serious intentions..

Gerson Institute, CA .Google it.. for vegetarians.. while all others continue to use your up to date food list.
