Live and Coagulated (Dried) Blood Microscopy
Live Blood Microscopy (LBM):
LBM is performed by observing a single drop of blood under a high-powered light microscope camera which magnifies the image of the cells and other elements in the blood specimen by up to 1,000X.
It allows to observe for yourself on a large screen, the characteristics and environment of your blood. This can enable us to discover, in real time, what underlying factors may potentially be contributing to the current health status.
It is not a diagnostic tool but can be helpful in detecting pathogens such as bacteria, moulds, cell wall deficient forms, and certain parasites as well as signs of oxidative stress, anaemia, inflammation and certain mineral and vitamin deficiencies.
Coagulated Blood Microscopy (CBM):
CBM is performed on a series of drops of blood (collected from a single drop) that have been allowed to dry on a microscope slide and then examined under the microscope.
It is again, not a diagnostic tool but allows further insights into levels of oxidative stress, inflammation and, when combined with LBM, provides a deeper understanding of your individual state of health, and therefore assist in tailoring an effective and personalised treatment plan. This also provides us with the ability to monitor and view your progress during treatment.
