Abstract: 

Introduction: In the body of human there is a special system called antioxidant defense for defending it against damage caused by free radicals. The imbalance between the production for the free radicals and antioxidant defense system is called oxidative stress that can lead to different diseases. The effect of Hejamat on the balances of antioxidant defense system and decrease of the free radicals.
Methodology: In this study 30 individuals called on to one of Tehran Hejamat centers (with justification of Iran Hejamat Research centers) were occasionally selected on the base of demographic information, sex, and age. The parameters of oxidative stress were measured in this manner: the total antioxidant capacity of serum by FRAP method and the rate of lipid peroxidation by TBA method before Hejamat and two weeks after Hejamat. The results were analyzed with the use of SPSS, descriptive analysis and analytical analysis.
Results: The mean and standard deviation of the total antioxidant capacity of serum and lipid peroxidation before and after intervention respectively were 2.80
±0.131, 3.38±0.087, 11.6±12.8, 9.56±11.28 nmol/ml. Total antioxidant capacity of serum showed a significant difference (P=0.036). The rate of lipid peroxidation was not significant (P=0.492).
Conclusion: The results showed that the total antioxidant capacity of serum two weeks after intervention increases significantly and after Hejamat the antioxidant system of body is supported. Also the rate of the lipid peroxidation is decreased. So the decreasing of free radicals and after Hejamat probably can regulate the oxidative stress indicators in this way that decreases the individual's potential contact to different diseases.
