LIVE, DRY & DARK FIELD BLOOD ANALYSIS
An increasing number of health professionals have found that the use of this technique allows inspection of cellular dynamics which as noted above normally escape analysis or diagnosis using orthodox medical tests.
A dark field microscope is a microscope designed to permit diversion of light rays and illumination, from the side, so that details appear light against a dark background; as opposed to light passing straight through the specimen. If bright lights from the microscope pass directly through the specimen, the heat from the light source will kill the red blood cells (RBC)s faster. Also, by diverting the light rays, a greater amount of depth and details can be viewed. (Almost like a three-dimension view).
Dark Field Microscopy thus allows a health professional to evaluate the shapes and other properties of individual blood cells, indicating nutritional conditions which can be adversely affecting a person's health. The advantage of this analysis over standard blood tests, which detect chemical changes in the blood, is the ability of dark field microscopy to detect nutritional disorders sooner, when the problem is in its infancy stages. By monitoring the blood's condition, a health professional can assist in "balancing" the blood by giving dietary and lifestyle recommendations which can enhance health.
A person’s blood is a picture of the health of their entire body from head to toe.
Your blood is your, “River of Life.” It transports oxygen, nutrients and other life-giving agents to the trillions of cells in your body. It also removes cellular waste produced during metabolism (the production of energy) from your cells to the liver or kidneys for elimination from the body. Unhealthy blood can resemble a fish bowl that has not been properly cleaned. A poor diet that includes GMO foods, chemicals, and emotional stressors will create a swamp of debris that will stagnate the blood and cause an environment ripe for disease and breakdown. Harmful bacteria and microorganisms can feed off these toxins, increasing your risk for disease. Live cell microscopy can detect imbalances that may not show up on traditional lab blood tests.
What is Live Blood Analysis?
Live blood analysis (LBA) is the analysis of living blood under a microscope connected to a camera. Live blood testing enables us to see your blood exactly as it behaves inside your body, giving a clear picture of your health at a cellular level. When you see your LBA, you realize that there is incredible dynamic activity taking place within you, and you can begin to better understand the specifics that need to be addressed without guessing. Utilizing this information one can directly address the problems that are creating the disease in the body without trying numerous therapies that are inappropriate for eliminating them. It has been shown that client compliance is greatly improved with understanding – once you know and can see what you are doing and why. In addition to that, one can also see the progress they are making in the body by checking the blood 30 – 60 – 90 days later.
The condition and quality of your red blood cells have a direct impact on your present and future health. Disease appears as stress in the blood sometimes years before manifesting as symptoms in the body. LBA can detect the potential for disease very early on, so is the ultimate preventative tool available. Traditional lab testing is good and has it place, but does not always show early signs of a possible disease.
Who is it for?
LBA is for anyone who cares about their health and is suitable for any age, even children. The advantage of this test over standard blood tests is that it may detect a problem in its infancy stages. Conventional Lab tests kill the blood when it is prepared; thereby missing what is present in live blood. Live blood testing is just as beneficial for healthy people as unhealthy. It will also give explanation as to why a current treatment is not working, or possibly the incorrect way to achieve optimum health.
How does it work?
The test is carried out by obtaining a drop of blood from the finger tip using a sterile lancet. The blood is placed on a microscope slide, covered with a coverslip to prevent drying, and immediately observed under the microscope. Darkfield microscopy allows an almost three dimensional look at the blood. The blood is magnified up to 1000 times. A video camera is hooked up to the microscope so that you may watch the entire procedure on a monitor.
You will be able to see the activity of your blood on the screen, the red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and what is floating in the plasma, like bacteria, yeast, crystals, plaque, and more. The blood is observed for 30 minutes. Once the blood leaves your body it begins to die. How quickly the morphological changes happen can indicate your present health condition.
Mind, body, and spiritual health is your responsibility. You are what you eat, drink, think, and create. This simple blood test is one important tool in helping you to change your health for the better.

The Blood System
The blood plays a central role in the overall health of every person. Although nearly 100 percent water, blood is a complex liquid that comprises approximately 7.5 percent of a person’s total weight. An average size man has about 1-1/2 gallons (5.5 liters) of blood, while a woman has slightly less than a gallon (3.25 liters). There are about 30 trillion red blood cells in the average human body.
Whole human blood consists of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets that float individually in plasma, a straw-colored liquid made up of about 90 percent water. The plasma, which also contains organic acids, glucose, hormones and salts, serves as a medium for:
(1) Circulating the suspended blood components throughout the body’s network of arteries, veins and capillaries;
(2) Delivering nutrients to the tissues and organs;
(3) Carrying minerals, hormones, vitamins and antibodies; and
(4) Removing waste products.
Normal Red Blood Cell
The circulatory system is the means by which oxygen, nutrients, antibodies, and hormones are transported to the cells to keep them alive and functioning. In optimum health the Erythrocytes are round and separated and move through the capillaries very easily. The average size of healthy RBCs is 7.2 microns
When the blood starts to stack the amount of oxygen that can be transported is severely diminished. This condition is caused by dehydration, high fat and protein diets, lack enzymes, and high acidity. Your blood will look like this if you drink one soda and can stay this way for at least two hours. When your cells are not supplied with oxygen you will feel tired, have poor digestion, and skin disorders can occur.
Target Cell (Codocyte)
These RBCs are deficient in iron and therefore hemoglobin cannot carry the oxygen. The symptoms produced in the body are tiredness, poor digestion, and anemia.
This condition is the first sign of cell stickiness and may progress into Rouleau if not corrected. It occurs when the RBC’s stick together in chains because of a lowered pH caused when monosodium urate (a protein by-product) level increases in the plasma. Protein linkage is a sign that fat and or protein which is not being digested completely.
White blood cells (Leukocytes)
The number, size, shape and movement of white blood cells point to possible issues related to immunity. In the long term, over-activity or under-activity of immune cells can result in an increased susceptibility to illness.
When the thrombocytes (Platelets) aggregate when there is no injury a very dangerous situation develops. The aggregated platelets can form a clot which can block an artery causing a stroke or heart attack. This clot is called a thrombus. Diets high in fats and proteins or high sugar consumption can create this situation due to creating a highly acidic environment.
Uric Acid Crystal
Uric acid is a byproduct of protein metabolization and urea. When the body becomes acidic the urea crystalizes and can lodge in the joints or in the tissues. Uric acid is the cause of gout, stones, arthritis, and one of the causes of fibromyalgia. These crystals are like shards of glass and are the reason it can cause so much pain for people with either of these disorders.
Cholesterol is an important sterol in the body that is the precursor for many important hormones. Only when the body is acidic does the cholesterol crystallize and become a problem. This is probably the most seen crystal in blood analysis, but it’s important to realize that cholesterol is not the problem when you see the crystals, acidity is.
Yeast (Candida Albicans) fungal forms
A yeast/fungus that feeds on fermented sugar in the blood. This condition is also indicative of over acidity as yeast cannot live in an alkaline environment.
Rod Form Bacteria
This is an advanced form of a bacterial infection and is regarded as a serious indicator of a weak immune system. These bacteria produce very toxic acid byproducts as a result of their metabolic processes.
This form of testing originated in Germany in the 1920’s. Dr. Henry Heitan and Dr. Philippe La Garde, personal NATO physicians to General Dwight D. Eisenhower, later introduced it in the U.S. This test is used in hundreds of clinics around the world including Germany, France, Switzerland, Holland, Scandinavia, Italy, Portugal, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, China and Korea as well as the United States.
To truly understand this test, you need to have a basic understanding of “Redox.” This word comes from the words reduction and oxidation. The building blocks of nature are known as atoms and atoms have a core or nucleus composed of protons, having a mass and a positive charge, and neutrons that have a mass but no charge. Orbiting electrons have a little mass and a negative charge as they surround the nucleus. Normally there are the same number of positive charged protons as there are negative charged electrons orbiting the nucleus and this is referred to as neutral.
Oxidation refers to a reaction in which an atom loses an electron. Reduction represents the gaining of an electron. So the term “Redox” refers to the reaction in which a substance loses an electron but the electron is gained by another substance. When this process gets out of control or balance we have “free radicals” and the damage that they cause. These free radicals affect the clotting factors of the blood.
The Mycotoxic Oxidative Stress Test (MOST) is a procedure where layers of capillary blood are gently pressed on a glass slide and exposed to ambient air. As these layers of a drop of blood dry or coagulate they go through a natural process of spinning, leaving unique characteristics of the sample. Review of these samples using a Bright field microscope allows evaluation of this information.
The dried sample is actually gathered first, as we take the droplet of finger capillary blood and expose it to the air, which allows the toxins or stress to separate into different layers of the droplet, from oxidation factors, and an alternative pathway from the intrinsic/extrinsic pathways. Then we gather the specimen in layers, on the slide so that the toxins are revealed in the specific body areas, and set it aside for drying. Through the oxidation of the blood cells and the toxins present in the blood, we are able to see characteristic patterning of an alternative pathway other than the extrinsic or intrinsic pathways. This allows us to identify what parts of the body are holding toxins and therefore not functioning properly.
The peripheral blood analysis is an excellent assessment modality to determine priority of need and proper place of suggestion for the patient. This allows the analyst to assess the areas and extent of cellular oxidation and degeneration. What we take into consideration:
Is there evidence of altered physiological processes?
Is the condition functional or organic?
Is there evidence of acute changes or chronic condition?
Is the condition mild or severe in nature?
The dried sample reveals where your body is holding toxins, and what parts of your body functionality are impaired by the toxins. Although these toxins can be indicators of disease, the purpose of the testing is to find the root of the health problem or potential health problem, and educate you on how to remove the toxins, so you can help your body fight disease, or allow you to live a better life with the disease. This procedure is very accurate in testing for anomalies not recognized by the medical lab testing, and is therefore very worthwhile in discovering why your health is impaired. Each person will receive a DVD of the blood sample, and a suggestion sheet of vitamins, minerals, herbs and diet changes required to regain their health.
