“Blood is important because it is the primary stem cell. What this means is your blood, even the red blood cells are embryonic cells. It is your red blood cells that become body cells, including muscle and bone. The quality of your blood will determine the quality of your skin, liver, heart, brain, muscle, bone.” – Dr Robert Young.
Conventional blood tests are done by extracting blood from your arm and sent to a laboratory to be examined by a haematologist. Within 30 minutes however, the blood cells die, so the haematologist only counts dead red and white blood cells, determine what number is the cholesterol level or whether the patient is anaemic, etc.
Live Blood Analysis is the qualitative analysis of living blood under an exceptionally powerful microscope and then captured on a live video feed.
During Live Blood Analysis you have the opportunity to see your immune system activity amongst many other phenomena that would be missed by conventional techniques. These observable activities include bacteria, parasites, hormonal imbalances, yeast, fungus, mycotoxins, mould sugar imbalances, sugar intolerance, allergies, uric acid and more.
Why we care about blood
Blood is a vital part of the transportation system which delivers nutrients to all parts of our body and collects waste to be removed. Thus, proper diet and lifestyle is an important part of keeping this transportation system operating at peak efficiency. Microscopy is a tool which can help determine the current health of your blood and help direct you towards dietary supplements to improve blood health where needed.
Blood Crystallisation or Oxidative Stress Test
This test is a procedure in which layers of capillary blood are pressed onto a glass slide which is left uncovered in order to allow it to dry. In the process of drying, the blood goes through a natural process of spinning as it coagulates. The unique characteristics of the sample are then reviewed and evaluated.
For example, soft white clots of protein puddles appear which are a distinctive ‘foot print’ representing inflammatory or degenerative problems.
Where standard laboratory blood tests are generally quantitative (how many cells are there?), Nutritional Microscopy is qualitative (what is the condition of the cells?). Standard laboratory tests are often used as pre/post studies to Nutritional Microscopy because there is correlative value in knowing both the quantity and quality of your cells.
For over 70 years, Blood Crystallization Analysis has been performed by hundreds of microscopists. The resulting accumulation of clinical research data indicates how these blood pictures relate to health challenges. In recent years, much credence has been given to this test.
The Outcome Is To Bring the Body into Optimal Balance.
