Frequently Asked Questions
Can you diagnose anything?
It provides no information for diagnosis, treatment of disease, or assessment of any medical condition. That is the realm for doctors and licensed professionals.
How does this differ from traditional blood work done in a laboratory?
This is not clinical laboratory testing in which blood is drawn, put into a test tube and tested through a variety of clinical applications where the breakdown of the blood serum is counted.
Blood is made up of two parts: Fluid (plasma or serum) and Cells
Plasma contains various substances. Serum is the fluid part that remains after the blood is allowed to clot in a test tube.
This is an educational tool which provides a view of your live blood cells and plasma as they function in the body. It is the condition and activity of the live blood that helps demonstrate the current level of health.
What can you tell from live blood microscopy?
The report describes the appearance and level of severity of red and white blood cell changes and other elements that show up in live blood cells and plasma.
Why should I do this?
Blood microscopy is an educational guide for implementing changes in your diet, lifestyle and nutritional program. The reports reveal deficiencies from malabsorption and poor digestion, stress on specific organs, immune system activity, oxidative stress, bacterial and viral forms, heavy metals and much more.
Why should I get my saliva pH tested?
By measuring your saliva pH you can quickly and easily gauge the nutritional stress your body is under.
How is it done and what happens afterward?
Your finger is poked with a lancet. A drop of blood is placed on a slide, viewed under the microscope and recorded while you watch, learn and interact during the educational session. The recording is used to complete the detailed report. The report is for educational purposes only and not for diagnosis. It shows levels of severity and explains how and why each change can occur in the blood.
How does dry layered blood microscopy differ?
A drop of blood is pressed onto the slide in layers and dries before viewing under the microscope. When the fibrinogen and red blood cells dry they create a revealing picture of overall health. Free radical activity and oxidative stress damage cells and the extra cellular matrix. This alters the blood clotting process into various patterns. The patterns are viewed and recorded in a detailed report.
What do I do with this information?
Use the reports to better understand the overall health of your body and how cellular changes can occur. Implement lifestyle, diet and nutritional changes to support your health.
What if I don’t understand the reports?
Take the time to thoroughly read the reports. There can be many possible reasons for variations in live and dry layered blood. Common sense and good judgment should be your guide. I offer separate consultations to cover the reports in detail and answer questions.
