Ever wonder what's inside your blood?
Excerpts from an article written by:
By Lynne Hinton, RNCP

"Live blood analysis differs from traditional medical blood testing in which preserved blood is sent to a laboratory for an "autopsy" and analyzed for chemical composition and cell counts. 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."
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 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 dark field condenser, the process gives a highly contrasted image so that live material can be easily viewed.
This dark field 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."
"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 sub-optimal patterns before serious trouble such as disease arises."
"Microscopic analysis of live blood is very popular in Europe, especially Germany. In Canada, live blood and dark field microscopy are gaining in popularity and are now available in almost every city. Live blood work is not covered by provincial health insurance."
Only a few drops of blood are required for the test with a similar type of skin poke taken for blood sugar level testing. Slides are prepared with the single droplets then view under the microscope in real time on a rather large screen. Jo-Anne will thoroughly discuss and explain with each client what they are seeing.
Clients can book sessions directly, or may be referred from their Naturopath or other health care provider.
Live Cell Sessions available in October 2020 w/ Jo-Anne
