Live Blood Cell Analysis is an in-office assessment of nutritional imbalances and altered blood ecology patterns. A single drop of blood obtained by finger prick is examined at high magnification with a dark-field microscope which is connected to a television screen. The immediate results are observed by both client and practitioner.
Our blood transports essential nutrients and oxygen to every cell in the body and carries away waste metabolites to the liver and kidneys for elimination. Therefore, the condition of red and white blood cells, platelets as well as certain other indicators in the blood plasma provide valuable information about how our internal environment is working. Live blood cell microscopy may be of value in the early assessment of environmental sensitivity, imbalanced terrain, compromised immunity and other conditions before real symptoms appear. It acts as an educational “feedback mechanism”, motivating people to introduce nutritional and lifestyle changes. Follow up live blood cell analysis provides feedback on one’s progress as improved nutrition impacts the blood.
