Live and Dried Blood Analysis

Live and Dried Blood Analysis


What is Live Blood Analysis?

One drop of blood is analysed under high magnification using a specialised, sophisticated microscope. The size, shape and ratios of red and white blood cells, plasma and platelets can be seen. This provides valuable information about the following:-

  • Nutritional imbalances and deficiencies
  • Certain biochemical imbalances
  • Immune system imbalances
  • Micro-organisms / yeast / bacteria
  • Organ/system dysfunctions

Although it cannot diagnose disease, live blood analysis can show the impact that diet and lifestyle has had on health. This is important because the development of most chronic and degenerative conditions can be prevented with early intervention of diet and lifestyle changes.

Live blood analysis is also a helpful tool for monitoring progress and showing clients the effects of the changes they have made. Visually, being able to see these positive changes in the blood between consultations, can be very motivating.

What is Dried Blood Analysis?

Allowing blood to dry on the slides we are able to see patterns of degeneration. It gives us an indication of which parts of the body are holding onto toxins and therefore are at risk of degenerative disease.

How is the test performed?

A tiny drop of blood is taken from the tip of the finger using a fine lancet. The first drop used for the live blood analysis is immediately place on a slide. It must be assessed within 30 minutes of collection.

A second drop of blood is pressed onto a new slide and allowed to dry for the Dried Blood Analysis. This can be looked at after 30 minutes.

The microscope is able to show the minutest details which is then transmitted onto a computer screen for you to see. The examination takes between 30-45 minutes.
