Live and Dried Blood Cell Analysis
A revolutionary natural health practice, uses a high-powered microscope and camera to observe various elements of the blood in order to provide insights for natural treatments, lifestyle & dietary interventions, and the presence of toxins in the body.
What is Live Blood Analysis?
Live blood analysis can identify underlying imbalances that contribute to a variety of symptoms, including fatigue, weight problems, digestive problems, sleeplessness, headaches, allergies and many more. This test helps to take the guesswork out of choosing the correct natural program and combination of supplements for you. By analyzing via a darkfield special microscope, several drops of blood, we can uncover many hidden imbalances
How is it Performed?
Live Blood Analysis involves taking a sample of blood from the fingertip. It is then prepared on slides to be viewed immediately under the microscope. The blood is viewed under darkfield, phase contrast, and brightfield microscopy with high quality, modern equipment. The images are then projected onto a video screen where they can be observed and discussed in highlighted detail. For most of our patients & clients, the visual images of seeing their own “live blood” can be quite interesting and educational. With this information, a trained professional can observe certain patterns in your blood cells and surrounding tissues that are rarely observed in traditional blood testing and can be viewed as an important educational health tool.
What is Dried Blood Analysis?
Dried Blood Cell Analysis is where 6-8 droplets of your blood are placed on microscope slides and are viewed in their dried state through the microscope. The drying patterns of blood droplets can explain a lot about what is taking place in the body. By examining the drying patterns of blood, information can be revealed about potential physiological conditions. Each sample or droplet of blood will dry differently and each formation in a blot is indicative of a specific health-related issue.
How Can a Blood Analysis Help?
Live blood analysis, is revolutionizing many natural health practices all around the world by giving practitioners the edge they need to achieve better results in their practice. Live blood analysis is also known as naturopathic microscopy, live blood cell analysis, nutritional microscopy, and The Oxidative Stress test.
Live blood cell analysis is the observation of live blood cells using a high-powered specialized microscope with a camera that projects a picture of the live blood cells onto a screen to be seen by the practitioner and client together, allowing pictures and videos to be recorded.
A tiny pinprick of blood is put on a glass slide and then viewed on the screen. In live blood analysis, the blood is not dried or stained beforehand, so the blood elements can be seen in their living state. The practitioner and client look at the variations in the size, shape, ratio, and fine structure of the red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and other blood structures.
The insights gained from the live blood analysis, correlated with other clinical data, enable the analyst to understand his/her clients’ individual state of health on a much deeper level.
As a result, an appropriate course of natural treatment and lifestyle/dietary interventions can be formulated, and furthermore, the effectiveness of various treatment combinations can be tested and progress can be monitored by observation of changes through further live blood analysis. Nutritional microscopy uses live blood analysis with a slant on using nutrition to achieve optimum health naturally.
Dry blood analysis or The Oxidative Stress Test is another very valuable test in live blood cell analysis. With The Oxidative Stress Test (Dry Blood Analysis) a lot can be learned about the level of free radical damage/oxidative stress and toxins in the body.
