A NEW way to measure your health progress

I’m really excited this week about a brand new addition to the Mullen Health team… the CR3000 mini pathology lab! I know that might not sound all that exciting, but hear me out.

As naturopaths, our main focus is to help you achieve better health. But how do you know if your natural medicines, healthy eating and exercise are paying off?

While we currently use several methods to monitor your progress, this machine allows us an insight into one very revealing indicator of your health: oxidative stress.

Oxidative stress is an imbalance in the production of reactive oxygen species (free radicals) and antioxidant defenses in the body.

A certain level of oxidative stress is a normal part of the aging process, however excessive oxidative stress is associated with degenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, and has also been linked to the development of cancer.

Causes of excess oxidative stress can include:


  • UV rays from the sun and radiation
  • Poor sleep quality


  • Processed foods including additives, preservatives, poor quality carbs (sugar) and trans fats
  • Exposure to pollution and toxins in water and air
  • Toxins in personal care products
  • Pesticides
  • Antibiotics or hormones such as those found in animal products
  • Smoking
  • Drinking alcohol
  • Illegal and prescription drugs


  • Viral and bacterial infections
  • Immunological reactions, allergy and autoimmune
  • Human metabolism – day to day.
  • Overtraining, aerobic and endurance exercise.

Antioxidants from our diet as well as specific antioxidant supplements work to decrease the activity of free radicals, whileproviding the raw materials for the body’s own powerful antioxidant Glutathione. 

So how does the CR3000 test for oxidative stress?

  • The Free Oxygen Radical Test (FORT) measures your level of free radicals
  • The Free Oxygen Radical Defence (FORD) measures antioxidant capacity
  • The difference between these tests will reveal your level of oxidative stress.

As you can see, testing oxidative stress is an excellent way to not only measure how fast you’re aging, but also whether you’re at risk of degenerative diseases.

Retesting your level of oxidative stress allows you to see that your dietary, lifestyle and antioxidant supplementation is in fact having a positive effect on your long-term health.

But do you want to know the best thing about this machine? It measures WAY more than just that. In next week’s post, I’ll share how it can help you avoid developing type II diabetes.
