Live blood analysis can provide information about different areas of your health including: health of the immune system, condition of the red blood cells, liver toxicity, presence of candida (and other fungus) and parasites within the body, malabsorption of fats, oxidative stress and free radical damage, as well as inflammation in the body.
What is Live Blood Analysis?
Live blood analysis, also known as live blood cell analysis, is the observation of live blood cells using a special microscope known as a dark field microscope. It is a diagnostic test used as a means of detecting health conditions. It is valuable as an early detection tool. A drop of blood is taken from the patient’s fingertip, put on to a glass plate, and then viewed using a microscope that projects the images onto a screen. The blood is not dried or stained beforehand, so the blood elements can be seen in their living state. The tester will 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. Unlike other medical tests, you remain present during the analysis of your blood.
Why use Live Blood Analysis?
Our blood is the vital fluid of life. Its condition is of paramount importance to the state of our health. Blood is responsible for transporting and delivering oxygen and nutrients to every cell in the body, and for picking up carbon dioxide and waste products for delivery to the organs of elimination. It also carries the immune system’s white blood cells that are responsible for keeping us free of the pathogens that make us ill. Hence blood is an ideal medium to analyse your overall health status.
Live blood analysis is designed to detect, at an early stage, functional imbalances in the body that are known as precursors to disease, in some cases, before standard blood testing is able to. The practitioner is then able to recommend changes (e.g. nutritional) that need to be made by the patient allowing the precursors to be reversed before the disease becomes diagnostically apparent.
This allows us to design highly individualised treatment protocols incorporating changes in diet and nutrition as well as the application of specific supplements, herbal remedies and Bicom bioresonance programs, aimed at assisting the patient to self-heal and improve their health status and maintain good health and vitality.
Live blood analysis can provide information about different areas of your health, including:
- Activity of the immune system
- Condition of the red blood cells
- Liver toxicity
- Presence of parasites, fungus and yeasts within the body
- Malabsorption of fats
- Oxidative stress and free radical damage
- Inflammation in the body
Live Blood Analysis is a screening tool which assists qualified practitioners, to identify health issues and question the patient about their current health situation in order to ascertain underlying factors that may be contributing to the patient’s body being out of balance. This in turn can contribute to interference of the body’s natural healing ability resulting in poor health.
How it works
A tiny drop of blood is collected onto a microscope slide via a finger prick and examined using the Dark Field Microscope. Your blood is visible on a computer screen enabling you to actually see the specific improvements in your blood and therefore your overall health.
When blood is perfectly balanced the red blood cells are loose and free flowing. They are mainly round (not oval, oblong, jagged or varying in size) and the background is clear from floating matter such as bacteria, fungus etc. The white blood cells are approximately twice as large as the red blood cells. They can occur in any shape, but have a crisp, clean border and extensive movement.
Elements of the blood examined are:
- The levels, size, shape and mobility of red blood cells (RBC’s).
- The levels, size, shape and activity levels of white blood cells (WBC’s).
- The number of chylomicrons – an indication of fat digestion
- The size, amount and adhesive properties of platelets.
- Oxidative stress
- Other elements observed are fatty deposits, uric crystals
- Observations of any abnormalities are compared to what is considered normal.
Live Blood Samples…
Normal Red Blood Cell
The circulatory system is the means by which oxygen, nutrients, antibodies, and hormones are transported to the cells to keep them alive and functioning. This is how our blood looks when we are experiencing optimum health. The Erythrocytes (cells) are round and separated and move through the capillaries very easily.
This condition is one step worse than rouleau. This is often seen in people with degenerative diseases. This is caused by undigested fats and proteins and high acidity. Degeneration of tissue always follows low oxygen and acidity. This condition can precede a blood clot which can cause a stroke or heart attack.
This condition is the first sign of cell stickiness and may progress into rouleau if not corrected. Protein linkage is a sign that excessive protein is being consumed or the protein is not being digested completely. As the cells start sticking together it becomes harder for the heart to push the blood through the veins and arteries.
This condition is caused by free radicals. This also lowers the bloods oxygen carrying capacity and shortens the life if the cell. Red Blood Cells (RBCs) don’t have nuclei, so they will not mutate, but the fact that there is free radical damage signifies that there will also be damage to the nuclei of tissue cells which is the beginning of mutations that lead to cancer.
When the blood gets to this condition the amount of oxygen that can be transported is severely diminished. This condition is caused by high fat and protein diets and high acidity. Your blood will look like this if you drink one soda and will stay that way for at least two hours. Because your cells are not getting oxygen you may feel tired, have poor digestion and skin disorders.
These are small RBCs with a diameter of less than 5 microns. These cells have less haemoglobin than normal cells and this is often seen in people with iron deficiency anaemia.
What you need to know about your appointment
On booking your appointment you will be asked to fast for 2 hours prior to the blood test. This is to ensure that the digestive process does not cloud the blood for analysis.
At the appointment, after a discussion about your current health concerns, we will perform the blood test. This involves taking a small drop of blood from your finger tip and placing it on the microscope. You will see your blood magnified and we will begin the analysis, scanning the slide to observe the blood cells and the plasma.
What’s the difference between live blood and a regular blood test?
The regular blood sample taken at the laboratory takes few days to analyse so the blood cells die off in the meantime. The blood is also changed through the addition of stains and dyes in order to facilitate the analysis.
Live blood analysis is very different from a regular blood test. The live blood is observed live under a microscope giving the patient the ability to see his or her blood on a video screen. The results are immediate; there is no waiting around and the patient gets to participate and understand what is happening inside their own bodies. The blood sample is still alive and it gives a more accurate picture of a person’s health at the cellular level.
Another advantage of live blood screening is that it shows the patient their immune system activity plus lots of other important findings including: yeast, fungus, mould, bacteria, parasites, hormonal imbalances, sugar imbalances, sugar intolerance, allergies, mycotoxins, uric acid and more.
Disclaimer: Live Blood Microscopy is used purely as a screening tool. Blood microscopy is not a diagnostic tool because variations can indicate a number of possibilities in relation to health, but used in conjunction with additional tests and thorough case taking, it will assist your highly qualified practitioner to establish the root cause of imbalance or disease. In the long term, this can speed up the healing process and save a lot of time and money. It is important to note that other pathology testing and examination by a physician may be required for diagnosis.
