What is Live Blood Cell Analysis?
Disclaimer: Please note that this technique is not a diagnostic tool for any specific disease. It is a technique that is utilized to show people how their dietary and lifestyle habits may be influencing their health and where appropriate adjustments may be necessary within these areas in order to optimize health.
Live blood cell analysis is especially helpful as part of a preventative approach to healthcare. The blood comes into contact with almost every cell in the body. It carries vital nutrients and oxygen to the cells and removes wastes from the cells as part of a normal metabolic process. Capillary blood (which is what we use in the analysis) is where the important function of exchange between blood and cells takes place. In other words, this is the site where oxygen and other nutrients transfer from the bloodstream to other tissues in the body. Capillaries also collect carbon dioxide waste materials and return them to the veins for elimination by the lungs. So you can see how observing the functioning of this “terrain” may offer significant insight into how well the body absorbs nutrients and excretes toxins.
Live blood analysis uses whole, unaltered blood viewed under higher magnification to assess the condition of blood cells, plasma, microbial activity and anomalies that are not typically ordered in conventional blood testing.
Live Blood Cell Analysis is performed only by Certified Practitioners using a method called Darkfield Microscopy. The method originates in Germany and it is frequently used by both mainstream and alternative doctors in Europe. Greatly because of the work of pioneering Canadian scientist Gaston Naessens, Darkfield Microscopy is gaining more popularity with holistically-minded health practitioners throughout North America.
The procedure consists of taking one drop of blood from the client’s finger and placing the sample immediately under the microscope. The actual collection takes approximately 1-2 seconds and it is regarded by most people as being pain free.
In Darkfield Microscopy, we observe the live blood cells magnified 1,500 times and displayed on a video screen. What we see are the usual red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, and what is floating in the plasma: microbes, parasites, undigested food, fungi, and crystals.
By studying the shape and functioning of red blood cells, white blood cells, and the presence of metabolic by-products and pathogenic micro-organisms, Darkfield Microscopy allows the Practitioner to evaluate the health of someone’s “terrain”. As such, the Practitioner is able to detect warning signs of illness and reveal many underlying issues contributing to someone’s current state of health. Although not a diagnostic tool in itself, Live Blood Cell Analysis will reveal the factors compromising the ability of the body to achieve health. The advantage of this analysis over standard blood tests is the ability of Darkfield Microscopy to detect nutritional disorders sooner, when the problem is in its infancy stages.
What Types of Problems Can Live Blood Cell Analysis Detect?
- Fungal infestation/Yeast/Candida
- Nutritional deficiencies: B vitamin deficiency, Iron deficiency
- Digestive insufficiency
- Hormonal imbalances
- Immune system function
- Liver or bowel toxicity
- Free radical damage
- Allergic tendencies
- Uric acid crystal accumulation and risk for gout
- Kidney function
- Heavy metal toxicity
- Atherosclerotic plaque; early recognition of cardiovascular risk factors
- Poor circulation, oxygenation level and abnormal blood clotting
Many nutritional deficiencies, biochemical imbalances or toxicities can be detected by Darkfield Microscopy long before routine lab tests show any real problems. Early nutritional intervention through dietary changes, supplementation and homeopathic medicines can and will reverse the damage and bring your body back into balance.
