Live-cell Microscopy (also known as Live Blood Analysis) is an analytical procedure that uses a dark field microscope to analyze an individual's blood. It is best used as a screening test to help determine the optimal diet and natural therapies for not only healthy individuals but those with acute or with chronic illness. The main advantage of this technique is that many nutritional imbalances can be detected before standard chemical blood tests show any abnormalities. Health problems can then be prevented by early nutritional intervention.

How is Live-cell Microscopy Different from Regular Blood Analysis?

  • Live-cell uses whole blood as opposed to just parts of the blood

  • The blood is unstained

  • It is still alive

  • Uses higher magnification

  • Different type of lens

These differences allow the technician to see more cellular detail than could possibly be seen by the conventional microscope. Live-cell analysis involves the use of a microscope attached to a high quality colour video camera that is connected to a colour monitor so that the patient can observe the blood analysis as it takes place.

What Can Live-Cell Microscopy Show?

  • Nutritional deficiencies

  • Folic acid and vitamin B12 deficiencies

  • Immune disorders

  • Bacteria

  • Parasites

  • Candida/ yeast/ fungi

  • Undigested protein and fat

  • Digestive enzyme and hydrochloric acid deficiencies

  • Abnormalities associated with hormonal imbalances

  • Uric acid crystals and risk of gout

  • Poor circulation, oxygen level and abnormal blood clotting

  • Free radical damage and the need for antioxidant protection by vitamins, mineral, enzymes

  • Cell abnormalities in size and shape

Before Your Visit

You must fast for 4 hours and drink 2 liters of water before coming to the office. One drop of blood is taken from a fingertip puncture. It is then placed on the microscope to be analyzed. Once the sample is taken you may then eat, sit back and observe the analysis. The analysis 45 minutes to one hour.
