What’s your blood say about you (2)

Live Blood Microscopy
Looking at your live blood under the microscope is AMAZING! Your blood cells and other elements in the blood are a reflection of your physical health and your emotional health. Changes to the morphology (shape, size, structure) of your red blood cells indicates stress or burden on your body, particularly oxidative stress. When you see a change (a deviation from normal) it may indicate multiple causes so it’s important to put it into the context of your symptoms and not to use live blood analysis as a diagnostic tool.
Is Live Blood a Diagnostic Tool?
No. It’s a guide only. I recently looked at the blood of a colleague who’s personal health history I was unaware of, except for the fact that he was gluten intolerant. His blood showed significant liver stress and a possible indication of poor fat metabolism. His coagulated blood indicated digestive stress, adrenal stress and possible allergies. Now, from this I can’t make any assumptions about his health concerns till I’ve questioned him further. Perhaps he had a liver infection? Perhaps he had diarrhea or bowel problems. Perhaps he wasn’t just gluten intolerant but also lactose intolerant. We don’t know till we have more information.
Can you see Cancer?
A client asked me if I could see cancer in the blood. No, not exactly. If cancer was causing the red blood cells to be oxidised in great numbers or if the white blood cells were very high or very low, there may be an indication that something is wrong but cancer diagnosis is best left to the medical profession where they have exceptional testing procedures for diagnosing cancer.
Coagulated Blood Microscopy
Dried or coagulated blood analysis has a more recent history. Discovered by a doctor in the 1950s, it is another wonderful tool for detecting when we’re no longer in a healthy state. Blood is sensitive to oxidation so when is dries, it dries unevenly if there is oxidation present. Biochemical changes to the blood, due to say thyroid problems, pain, allergies or nutrient deficiencies (eg vitamin C) will alter the drying pattern of the blood in a particular way. A large amount of research over recent decades now allows us to interpret possible causes for these alterations. All of it helps guide you in the right direction for your health.
So, what does your blood say about you?
Ultimately, the blood reflects your diet and lifestyle choices. The blood tells you how well you’re doing with that! Just to clarify though, supplements and herbs alone will help give you potentially 15-20% improvement in your health, while positive changes in diet and lifestyle will potentially give up to 80-85% improvement. How well are you doing with your diet and lifestyle choices! 🙂
