Live blood cell analysis

Why it’s important to do it?

Nutritional deficiencies, atherosclerotic plaque, hormonal imbalances, digestive problems, liver stress, immune function, bacteria and parasites can be revealed.

Discover how you can be an active participant in correcting any areas of concern. Together, we will establish a proactive nutritional plan that will put you back in control of your own health.


Live Cell Microscopy (LCM) is a blood screening technique that can detect imbalances that may not show up on traditional lab blood tests. By examining the quality of the blood, LCM offers a useful measure of the integrity of blood and immune cells, of nutritional deficiencies, and of the presence of toxins and pathogens (bacteria, parasites).

When red blood cells are distorted in size or structure, they lack flexibility and fluidity. This compromises their ability to flow freely and to efficiently transport oxygen. Misshapen blood cells are also indicative of nutrient deficiencies resulting from a poor diet or from the body’s inability to properly metabolize vitamins and minerals.

The presence of “undesirables” in the blood plasma provides further information about potential problems. For example, accumulation of fat crystals in the blood suggests poor digestion of fats, a lack of essential fatty acids, and the potential for arterial plaque build-up; yeast and fungus suggest intestinal toxicity and a decreased resistance to microbes; protein threads, called spicules, suggest liver congestion resulting in the poor digestion and utilization of fats. Other stressors such as free radical damage, inflammation, parasitic activity and fungal forms are also visible.

The information revealed by Live Cell Microscopy enables the Practitioner to provide each client with a comprehensive personalized protocol which includes lifestyle, dietary and nutritional supplement recommendations.

A follow-up appointment is recommended 8-12 weeks from the initial visit. At this time, improvements in blood quality are assessed, and further recommendations are offered to help maintain healthy blood and strong immune function.

How long does it take?

A session takes approximately 30-40 minutes. The cells of the blood live for at least 20 minutes.The red blood cells are uniform in size and shape and appear as round circles on a gray background. The center of the cells is lightened somewhat and slightly off-white in color. They reside freely in their own space, not overlapping or slicking together, but gently bouncing off each other. 

The white cells are about as large as two red cells and have a rather grainy appearance with 3 to 4 dark, irregularly shaped lobes inside the cell. Rather than being round, they display many different shapes and are active and moving. In normal blood there are about 700 red cells to every white cell. The blood serum surrounding the cells is clear without parasites, bacteria, clots, or other undesired floating masses.
