What is Live Blood Microscopy?
Live blood work involves magnifying a single living drop of blood, taken from a fingertip prick, to 1,000 times or more under a microscope. The cells of the blood live for at least 20 minutes and with the aid of a video camera, are observed on a monitor, revealing certain subtleties missed by laboratory blood tests. Although live cell microscopy was invented over 140 years ago, only with the recent advent of a video camera and monitor, did it become possible for the client to become involved by observing the immediate test results on the screen.
Nutritional Indicators Live blood analysis can reveal distortion of red blood cells which reflect nutrition status, especially low levels of iron, protein, vitamin B12, folic acid and fatty acids. Incomplete or delayed digestion of fats and proteins can also be observed. In addition, liver stress and undesirable bacterial, parasitic and fungal by-products may be revealed. The live blood thus acts as an educational “feedback mechanism”, motivating people to improve their diet, perhaps with the addition of nutritional supplements.
Positive changes in the structure of the blood cells can be viewed over time, usually a period of months, as improved nutrition impacts the blood.
In laboratory tests, preserved blood must be stained in order to see certain cellular structures. When live blood is viewed with a darkfield condenser, the process gives a highly contrasted image so that live material can be easily viewed. This darkfield microscopy may be of value in the early assessment of environmental sensitivity, imbalanced terrain, compromised immunity and other conditions, months or years before traditional medical diagnosis. The microscopist can look at live blood through various lenses, including darkfield and brightfield, both of which provide a different illumination to help. evaluate the same blood specimen. much information concerning the state of one’s health and immunity. Although the diseases themselves cannot be actually seen under a microscope, live blood 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..
