Live Blood Analysis

 rouleauThe microscopic evaluation of live and dry blood is an indispensable technique used to assess health and a multitude of factors related to poor health at the cellular level. Its history goes back more than 60 years and it is still developing today. Several independent researchers from across the world have spent hours behind their microscopes, analyzing thousands of samples and making careful observations about the differences between healthy and unhealthy blood specimens, correlating their findings with clinical symptoms and conditions. What we have gained from all their hard work is a technique unparalleled in its accuracy and unmatched in its reliability. It has steadily grown in popularity among natural health practitioners worldwide by virtue of the insight it is able to provide on the body’s internal environment, which we refer to as the ‘terrain’.

This tool is NOT used as a diagnostic medium, rather the analysis of both live and dry blood specimens provides us with valuable insight into the body’s internal terrain, which constitutes the blood, lymphatic fluid, cerebrospinal fluid and the interstitial fluid that surrounds every single cell in the body. Just like a fish swimming in unhealthy water will become unhealthy, so the cells in the body are poisoned by the toxins and acids in the fluid in which they are bathed. The purpose of looking at blood under the microscope is to determine the state of the terrain – whether it is in a state of balance or imbalance. This knowledge is of utmost importance because changes in the blood precede any physical manifestation. When the blood and terrain become compromised, disease is soon to follow, and by correcting the imbalance in the terrain we are able to re-establish a state of balance and health.

While conventional medicine is concerned with eradicating disease by killing bacteria, cancer cells or by replacing hormones and suppressing symptoms, natural medicine is concerned with the state of the terrain, because disease will only be able to thrive in a suitable soil. Just like plants that have been grown in poor soil and are subsequently weaker and more prone to disease, so are the cells in the body affected by the terrain.

We can also identify potential problems years before conventional blood tests and investigations are able to detect any abnormalities. This makes the analysis if live and dry blood through a video microscope indispensable in the prevention of illness. The blood comes into contact with every living cell in the body. It carries vital nutrients and oxygen to the cells and carries wastes away from the cells. If we understand why the blood is sick we then understand why other cells in the body are sick and if we are able to improve the quality of the blood we will be able to improve the quality of almost every cell in the body.

Too many resources are used on studying disease and treating disease (’disease-care’), whereas we should be focusing our attention on studying health and understanding how to maintain health (’health-care’). Instead of being concerned with the type of disease the person has, we should be concerned about what type of person has the disease.

This amazing technique allows us to also test specific treatment protocols and monitor progress. The effects of the newest supplement or natural medicine can be tested by looking at the changes brought on in the blood after using the medicine. Specific diets and other lifestyle choices can also be tested and the specific combination that works best for each individual can be determined. This can be done accurately because the blood doesn’t lie. Changes (for the better or worse) can be seen occurring in the blood after a specific treatment and it is living proof of the effect of that treatment on the body.

The visual impact this test has on people ensures that they stay committed to a treatment program and remain motivated to make positive, health-promoting changes in their lifestyles. Those unfamiliar with this test are always amazed at the degree of detailed information that can be obtained from a small sample of blood. In many cases hidden, sub-clinical conditions are uncovered that were not suspected, and would not have been tested for. Many clients who believe they are following a healthy diet and supplement regimen have hidden deficiencies that are impacting on their health. Other clients have vague symptoms that may be caused by a multitude of imbalances – with live blood analysis we are able to determine the cause of the symptoms and develop specific treatment protocols, tailored for each individual case, to address the underlying causes of symptoms.

The process is fairly simple and not very invasive. A small amount of blood is taken from a patient’s finger and analyzed under high magnification using a specialized microscope. Various blood morphologies and abnormalities can be identified, which provide information on underlying imbalances, weaknesses, nutritional deficiencies and the health priorities of the individual being tested. The insights gained from the analysis, correlated with other clinical data, enable the analyst to understand his/her client’s individual state of health on a much deeper level.

In conventional laboratory blood analysis (peripheral blood smears) the sample is stained and essentially dead. Live blood analysis uses whole, unaltered blood viewed under higher magnification to assess the condition of blood cells, plasma, microbial activity and anomalies that are not typically ordered in conventional blood testing. We are looking at how your blood cells are behaving while they are still alive.

Conditions commonly observed in live blood include:

  • Digestive disorders
  • Poor protein/fat digestion
  • Acidity / Latent tissue acidosis
  • Oxidative stress / Free radical damage
  • Toxicity
  • Degeneration
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Various Mineral deficiencies
  • Essential fatty acid deficiencies
  • Liver stress
  • Kidney stress
  • Raised Cholesterol & Homocysteine levels
  • Uric acid
  • Yeast (Candida) /
  • Intestinal dysbiosis
  • Parasites/ Bacteria
  • Plaque
  • Immune weakness / imbalance
  • Blood sugar imbalance
  • Allergies
  • Heavy metal toxicity
  • Bowel toxicity
  • Infections
  • Cardiovascular risk

Healthy dried blood

Another test used in conjunction with the live blood test to give us a more complete picture of the state of the terrain is the Oxidative Stress Test (OST). In this test we analyze a series of samples that was taken from one drop of blood and allowed to dry. Here we look at coagulated blood to give us information on deeper, more chronic imbalances and possible degenerative patterns. Through the different patterns of coagulation we are able to see the effect of acid wastes, toxins and other substances on the system and determine which parts of the body are holding toxins and therefore at risk of degenerative disease.

No other device or form of analysis has such a dramatic impact on patient compliance and interest in their own health. This test is being used by some of the most renowned natural practitioners around the world, including Robert O. Young (pH Miracle), due to its high level of reliability and its usefulness in testing different treatment protocols.

Live and dry blood analysis history:

Viewing live blood under a microscope is probably as old as the microscope itself. But it was the work of European scientists Dr Antoine Bechamp and Dr Gunther Enderlein in the mid-19th and early 20th centuries that would advance the use of the microscope, challenge the medical establishment of the day and propose new ways of interpreting what was being viewed in blood. Other microscopists included noted physiologist Dr Claude Bernard, who coined the term “internal milieu”, Germ Theory advocate Louis Pasteur, Californian Dr. Virginia Livingston Wheeler and Canadian scientist Gaston Naessens. (Dr Robert O Young PhD D.Sc: 2001: Sick and Tired)



Pasteur formulated the ‘Germ Theory’ by plagiarizing Antoine Bechamp’s theory of pleomorphism. Pleomorphism can be clearly demonstrated when viewing live blood cells. Bechamp postulated that it was all about the internal environment within the blood and that bacterium was a consequence of a polluted environment in the same way that rats would appear when rubbish was dumped because they wished to feed off it. Bacteria exist all around us yet we do not get sick all the time because we have immune systems that recognise these organisms and remove them from the body. When the body becomes acidic or toxic similar to a rubbish dump then it becomes a ‘fertile soil’ for bacteria, yeast and mould, hence disease.

Pasteur’s theory was accepted by the then medical fraternity because it meant huge revenues for pharmaceutical drug companies. Bechamp’s theory was rejected because it merely meant that the individual would have to take responsibility for their own health by choosing the correct nutritional habits and lifestyle and there was no money to be made from that. The medical fraternity therefore deemed Bechamp’s theory as ‘unscientific’ claiming that Pasteur’s theory could be consistently demonstrated. Pasteur’s theory has since been shown to be faulty because we now have antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria and at the same time vindicating Bechamp who said that the bacteria or microzyma could not be killed as it will only change or mutate.

In the 1920s, European medical practitioners added another twist to unconventional microscopy when they began looking at dried blood samples, later called the Oxidative Stress Test. A glass microscope slide is dabbed onto a bead of blood on the finger in sequence several times, resulting in a slide with eight individual drops of blood pressed upon the slide and allowed to air dry.

The resulting patterns seen in the dry blood under the bright field format reveal a characteristic ‘footprint’ which can be seen in similar cases and, thus, are predictive of certain generalised pathologies. For instance, cases of advanced degenerative disease show very poor clotting and minimal fibrin formation with many white ‘puddles’ disseminated throughout the sample. In contrast, a healthy control subject’s blood shows a tight, fibrin-rich clotting pattern with no white puddles.

In the 1930s, the head of surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr H L Bowlen MD, introduced the dry blood test to America. Dr Bowlen learned the dry test from President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s physicians, Drs Heitlan and LaGarde. In the 1970s, one of Heitlan-LaGarde’s students, Dr Robert Bradford of the American Biologics Hospital in Mexico, began teaching other practitioners how to perform this test. So there is now over 70 years of dry blood testing data by hundreds of healthcare practitioners worldwide.

Nutritional microscopy is now an alternative examination routinely practised by holistic medical, osteopathic, chiropractic and naturopathic physicians, as well as other healthcare professionals around the world, to provide an insightful view of the biological terrain.

Dr Robert O Young has extended the work carried out with live and dry blood analysis with nearly two decades of research. In particular, his findings on the use of the Mycotoxic Oxidative Stress Test have resulted in major advances of understanding.
