Live Blood Analysis – Going beyond traditional Blood Tests to feel better


By using Live Blood Analysis, also known as Darkfield phase contrast microscope technology, we can view attributes of your blood that are normally invisible using traditional methods. This allows us to identify problems that may be adversely affecting your health that cannot be detected using most traditional blood tests.

This process, called Live Cell Microscopy Analysis, often discovers health issues while they are in their infant stages. A nutritional microscopist can reveal the nutritional status of the blood by noting various processes which indicate poor digestion and assimilation associated with how the body uses food for energy, maintenance, growth and repair.

Live blood analysis provides an immediate view of the nutritional health status of the blood. Only fully digested food, broken down into its respective nutrients, should be present in the blood, where it has the power to create optimal health, vitality, and well being. Using live blood analysis, we can also assess the efficacy of the supplementation and dietary changes, which provides scientific evidence that we are on the right track towards turning your health challenges into health strengths.

Identifying insufficient metabolic enzymes
A healthy body will expend an estimated 40-60% of calories towards converting what we eat to some usable form. This means that there is less energy for your body to heal, repair and protect itself. As we get older, our ability to synthesize enzymes decreases by 8-10 percent each decade past puberty. Not only does this contribute to our ability to properly digest food, but also limits our production of metabolic enzymes needed to run every process in the body. This can lead to a strain on the immune system and erode our health, leading to issues that can decrease our overall well being, as well as pain related issues.

An additional packet is used to collect a urine sample.  This test is ideal for those who do not feel comfortable performing venipuncture, because it only requires a small sample of blood equivalent to the amount of blood diabetics use when performing a home blood glucose test. We can bill this test to your insurance (Medicare is not included).
