Live blood cell analysis is a blood test carried out by extracting a minute amount of capillary blood from the fingertip, placing it on a microscope slide and then observing it through a high-powered microscope. This technique has been in use since the 1920’s and provides observable data via a video screen.
This analysis differs from traditional medical blood testing in which a preserved blood sample is sent to a laboratory for an “autopsy” and analyzed for chemical composition and cell counts. Live cell analysis is just that. The cells of the blood are alive under the eye of the microscope for at least twenty minutes during which, with the aid of a video camera and monitor one can observe various subtleties and conditions.
Live blood cell analysis can reveal distortions of the red blood cells which reflect nutritional status, especially low levels of iron, protein, vitamin B, folic acid and fatty acids. Incomplete or delayed digestion of fats and proteins can also be detected. Other observable conditions include:
By using this monitoring process you can observe the characteristics of your own blood cells on the video screen and receive both a written and verbal description of the test results. Since diseases themselves cannot actually be seen, it should be noted that blood analysis by microscopy is not a diagnostic procedure, but does provide a screening process by which much of the guesswork is removed. The advantage is that the changes can be observed in the test results as the treatments or diet change. This information can assist you by:
- giving early warning of possible coming problems
- specifying conditions quickly, for a more accurate assessment
- alerting you to the usefulness of other, more detailed testing
- monitoring your condition before and after treatments
- determining the effectiveness of various treatments, products and diet
