Live Cell Nutritional Analysis
What is Live Cell Nutritional Analysis?
Live Cell Nutritional Analysis uses a drop of blood viewed under a microscope to provide valuable information about a patient’s general health, not only of the present state but also of his or her future well-being. It can reveal health issues before they are exhibited in the rest of the body. Live Cell Nutritional Analysis evaluates the biological terrain –your internal environment — and certain imbalances in the blood that may be indicative of other processes going on in your tissues, digestive system, cardiovascular system and immune system.
Here are a few examples of what we are looking for in Live Cell Nutritional Analysis:
Presence of Parasites or Bacteria
Liver or bowel toxicity
Immune system function
Free radical damage
Uric acid crystal accumulation and risk for gout Heavy metal toxicity
Atherosclerotic plaque; early recognition of cardiovascular risk factors
Poor circulation, oxygenation level and abnormal blood clotting
Symptoms of out of balance acid/alkaline pH blood level
What is the Procedure?
A drop of blood is drawn from the patient’s fingertip using a sterile lancet and immediately placed between a microscope slide and a cover slip. It is then viewed under the dark field microscope lens which magnifies the blood 1500 times and can be viewed by both the patient and clinician on a monitor. Together we can see indications of the health of your blood at a cellular level by observing red and white blood cells, plasma containing microbes, crystals, blood waste products, fungi and parasites.
The only preparation necessary is that it is best if you don’t eat a heavy meal for at least 4 hours prior to your appointment. In these 4 hours, try to drink 3 glasses of water.
What do I do once I have this information?
Being able to see for yourself indications of your health at a cellular level is a liberating and exciting experience. You get news you can use, even if the news isn’t what you might like to hear. Knowledge is power! For any conditions identified relating to your nutrition, your digestion, or any of the areas we observe you may be prescribed specific protocols or products to help restore your blood and tissues to a healthy condition. It may be as simple as increasing your intake of antioxidants, or as complicated as a whole parasite cleanse plus a recommended trip to your doctor to have your gall bladder looked at. Each person is an individual and each person gets focused attention on his or her own particular needs.
Once you have seen your biological terrain under the microscope you will want to come back in a few months, after you have made some changes, to see how well you are doing. The journey is empowering, educational, and nearly painless.
How is this different from conventional blood analysis?
- The amount of blood needed is significantly less than a conventional blood draw from the arm. We only need a drop. The procedure feels like a short pinprick on the finger so is not painful.
- Blood is viewed under a specialized microscope system which allows the patient to be able to see what’s happening on a screen as the clinician views it through the microscope. The feedback is therefore immediate and both patient and clinician participate in the analysis together. There is no waiting for lab results. You will walk away with information about what your blood is telling you.
As you return for follow-up appointments you will learn about your body and see for yourself the progression of improved diets, protocols, living habits or supplements you have undertaken.
Bear in mind that Live Cell Nutritional Analysis is not considered a formal medical diagnosis of specific illness and should not be the sole basis for investigating specific health concerns you may have. Always consult your doctor if you have questions, and I will always suggest you do that if necessary.
