Live Blood Cell Analysis
Detect Your Body’s Imbalances:
Live blood cell analysis differs from traditional medical blood testing in which preserved blood is sent to a laboratory for an “autopsy” and analyzed for chemical composition and cell counts. Live blood work involves magnifying a single drop of live blood, taken from a fingertip prick and uses higher magnification. The cells of the blood live for at least twenty minutes and, with the aid of a video camera, are observed on a monitor, revealing certain subtleties. Although live blood cell microscopy was invented about 70 years ago, only with the recent advent of video camera and monitor did it become possible for the client to become involved by observing the immediate test results on the screen.
Process & Technology:
When live cell is viewed, the microscopist can look at the sample through various lenses, dark field and bright field, both of which provide different illumination to help evaluate the same blood specimen. The “dark field” process gives a highly contrasted image so that live material can be easily viewed. This may be of value in the early assessment of environmental sensitivity, chronic fatigue syndrome, compromised immunity and other conditions months or years before traditional medical diagnosis.
Although the diseases themselves cannot actually be seen under a microscope, live cell analysis allows altered “blood ecology” patterns to be observed. These patterns allow disease imbalances to occur over time, and the idea is to modify and improve suboptimal patterns before serious trouble such as disease arises.
Live cell video microscopy can show:
- Free radical damage
- Indications of heavy metal toxicity.
- Bacteria in various stages of development.
- Live white blood cell activity.
- Fungi (Yeast/Candida)
- Undigested protein and fat
- Indications of digestive enzymes and hydrochloric acid deficiencies.
- Abnormalities associated with hormonal imbalances
- Folic acid and Vitamin B12 deficiency
- Iron deficiency
- Uric acid crystals (possible risk for gout).
- Poor circulation and abnormal blood clotting.
- Liver stress
- Bowel toxicity
- Essential fatty acid deficiency
- Plus many others
Guidelines For Assessment:
*Fast for 3 hours prior to your appointment. Please do not have any food, gum, mints or candies and avoid brushing your teeth, smoking, drinking coffee or any other beverages. If you are able to refrain from taking supplements, that is also advisable. The only exception would be for prescriptions, in which case, we advise making your appointment appropriately timed at least 3 hours after you have taken your medication.
*Drink some water (500ml) during the fasting period as you need to be well hydrated for an accurate analysis.
*If you have had any of the following tests done recently, you need to wait for a period of one month before your appointment: Ultrasounds, Mammograms, MRI’s, CAT Scans, Bone Scans, X-Rays, Dental X-rays, Full Body X-Ray Scans from Airports, Flu Shots, Vaccinations, or any other form of inoculation.
* Two weeks after anesthetic.
*3 Days are required after a plane flight.
*We will require a complete list of all medications and supplements that you have taken within the last month.
*Bring a snack &/or drink if you’d like to consume something after the blood is taken.
