Week 6 on the live blood analysis online training course – pleomorphic growth forms

We are now on week 6 of the live blood analysis online training course and studying pleomorphic growth forms in the blood.

Various pleomorphic growth forms can be observed in darkfield microscopy such as rod-form bacteria above.

ROD-FORM BACTERIA IN THE BLOOD

In Live Blood Analysis we view the clients live blood magnified on to a screen.
We look at the Red Blood Cells (RBCs), the white blood cells (WBC’s), the platelets and the plasma.
We compare the clients blood picture to normal healthy blood and look for anomalies in the size & shape of the cells, if they are free floating or sticking together, too many, too few, bacterial forms, yeast markers, fibrin spicules, crystals or protoplasts in the plasma.

ROD-FORM BACTERIA IN THE BLOOD” is taken from the 500+ page Live Blood Analysis Online Training Manual 2015″

Rod-form bacteria are rod-shaped microorganisms that move around actively in the plasma. The presence of rod-form bacteria is related to an under active immune system and a terrain that supports the development of pathogenic bacteria. The presence of many rod-forms is usually associated with some mucus-producing infection. Measures are used to correct the imbalance of the terrain. These include alkalizing formulae such as Base powder, wheatgrass and other green food extracts, trace minerals, as well as immune-building supplements and lifestyle changes.

Appearance:
Rod-shaped bodies that move around actively in the plasma.

Relevance:
An optimally functioning immune system will prevent rod-forms from being present in a drop of peripheral blood.

Medical Perspective:
As far as conventional medicine is concerned, bacteria will only be seen in the blood in cases of septicemia. However, various types of bacteria are clearly visible in live blood of patients who are not suffering from septicemia. Very interesting research conducted in Canada and published in the Journal of Clinical Microbiology proved that bacteria are in fact present in the blood (J Clin Microbiol. 2002 December; 40(12): 4771–4775).

Interesting facts about red blood cells

Red blood cells (RBCs) which are formed in the red bone marrow and are stored in the body’s reservoir for the blood, namely the spleen, comprise the greatest majority of the formed elements in the blood.

The average RBC is approximately 8 micrometers (µm) in diameter and has a life span of 110 to 120 days.

Aged RBCs are removed from circulation by macrophages that ingest them in the spleen and liver. The iron is recycled from the dead RBCs and then transported back to the marrow, where it is incorporated into new RBCs.

The RBCs are responsible for the transport of oxygen from the lungs to the cells and the transport of carbon dioxide from the cells to the lungs, from where it is expelled. RBCs are capable of transporting oxygen, carbon dioxide and other gases because of an iron-containing pigment within the cells called hemoglobin.

Oxygen can easily be absorbed into the RBCs, where it forms a temporary link with the iron atoms in hemoglobin. The fluid component of the blood, namely the plasma, is straw colored. The color of blood is created by the color of the RBCs, which is due to the heme group of hemoglobin. The difference in color between oxygen-rich blood (found in arteries) and oxygen-depleted blood (found in veins) is due to the state of the hemoglobin: when bound to oxygen the resulting oxyhemoglobin is scarlet, whereas the oxygen-depleted deoxyhemoglobin is darker. This is why veins appear bluish and arteries appear pinkish in the skin.

Mature RBCs in mammals do not have a nucleus and as a result, have no DNA. RBCs have nuclei during early phases of development, but lose them as they mature in order to provide more space for hemoglobin. Mammalian RBCs also lose their other cellular organelles, such as their mitochondria. As a result, they do not use any of the oxygen they transport; instead they produce the energy carrier ATP by fermentation, through the glycolysis of glucose followed by lactic acid production. Also, RBCs do not have insulin receptors in their cell membranes and therefore the uptake of glucose into the RBCs is not regulated by insulin. Because of the lack of nucleus and organelles, the RBCs cannot synthesize any RNA, and consequently they cannot divide or repair themselves.

This inability to repair itself enables us to see some history and the results of what has been occuring to the red blood giving us vital information in live blood analysis.

More information on live blood analysis:

The microscopic evaluation of live and dry blood is an indispensable technique used to assess health and a multitude of factors related to poor health at the cellular level. Its history goes back more than 60 years along with the history of the microscope and like the microscope, it is still developing today.
Several independent researchers from across the world have spent hours behind their microscopes, analyzing thousands of samples and making careful observations about the differences between healthy and unhealthy blood specimens, correlating their findings with clinical symptoms and conditions.
What we have gained from all their hard work is a technique unparalleled in its accuracy and unmatched in its reliability.
It has steadily grown in popularity among natural health practitioners worldwide by virtue of the insight it is able to provide on the body’s internal environment, which we refer to as the ‘terrain’.

More information on the oxidative stress test:

Another test used in conjunction with the live blood test to give us a more complete picture of the state of the terrain is the Oxidative Stress Test (OST).
In this test we analyze a series of samples taken from one drop of blood and allowed to dry.
Here we look at coagulated blood to give us information on deeper, more chronic imbalances and possible degenerative patterns.
Through the different patterns of coagulation we are able to see the effect of acid wastes, toxins and other substances on the system and determine which parts of the body are holding toxins and therefore at risk of degenerative disease.

If you are a practitioner, live and dry blood analysis will add another dimension to your practice!
No other device or form of analysis has such a dramatic impact on patient compliance and interest in their own health.
This test is being used by some of the most renowned natural practitioners around the world, due to its high level of reliability and its usefulness in testing different treatment protocols.

Parasites in Live Blood Analysis

IT IS ESTIMATED THAT 90% OF THE POPULATION HAS AT LEAST ONE FORM OF PARASITES IN THE BODY!

Parasite

(Small black bulges can be signs of toxins left behind by parasites in live blood analysis)

Once a person is infected it is not too difficult to eliminate the adult parasites. The more difficult part is dealing with the life cycle of the parasites which can take a considerable amount of time to accomplish.

Parasites may be present in food or in water and can cause disease.
Ranging in size from tiny, single-celled organisms to worms visible to the naked eye, parasites are more and more frequently being identified as causes of foodborne illness not only in third world countries but Western countries as well.The illnesses they can cause range from mild discomfort to debilitating illness and possibly death.It has been reported that 90% of the world population has at least one form of parasite living in their body!They live and feed off the host.
Parasites can deprive us of vitamins, nutrients, and amino acids, alter our natural pH levels, decrease our energy levels and create an acidic environment in the body.

According to the August 2000 issue of Discover magazine, most people have multiple parasites inhabiting their bodies. Recent research has shown that parasites are much more powerful than scientists originally believed. In fact, it seems parasites far outnumber any other living creatures. Our bodies are systems whose functions depend on communication between cells. It alarms scientists greatly that parasites are able to inhibit this communication, and thus seriously harm our bodily systems.

What are parasites? Parasites are organisms that derive nourishment and protection from other living organisms known as hosts. They may be transmitted from animals to humans, from humans to humans, or from humans to animals. Several parasites have emerged as significant causes of foodborne and waterborne disease. These organisms live and reproduce within the tissues and organs of infected human and animal hosts, and are often excreted in feces.

How are they transmitted?
They may be transmitted from host to host through consumption of contaminated food and water, or by putting anything into your mouth that has touched the stool (feces) of an infected person or animal.
How do they vary?
Parasites are of different types and range in size from tiny, single-celled, microscopic organisms (protozoa) to larger, multi-cellular worms (Helminths) that may be seen without a microscope.
What are some common parasites?
Some common parasites are Giardia duodenalis, Cryptosporidium parvum, Cyclospora cayetanensis, Toxoplasma gondii, Trichinella spiralis, Taenia saginata (beef tapeworm), and Taenia solium (pork tapeworm).
Parasites include ringworm, roundworms, tapeworms, microbial growth and their eggs.There are many ways in which parasites can enter the body: through food that has not been properly washed, infected meat, water, pets, dirt under fingernails, and also through the skin (Hookworm). Once the infection of parasites takes place they begin to multiply rapidly.One of the most common symptoms of parasites is fatigue as a result of the parasites feeding upon the host—YOU! They can steal vital nutrients from the body which can result in compromised health and a compromised immune system.
 The typical life cycle of a parasite starts with ingestion of eggs by the host. Parasites typically like a warm, dark and moist environment. They hatch and then invade the intestinal wall. Some will migrate to other parts of the body and some will migrate to the anal part of the body. Some adult parasites can live in the host body for up to two years. During this time as many as 50,000 eggs may be deposited. While in the body the parasites feed off of ingested food and even nutritional supplements. They also have an elimination process which means that they actually “go to the bathroom” in the host body.

Uric Acid Crystals

These appear as crystals that look like broken glass, yellow-green (brightfield) and highly reflective (darkfield).

These occur as a result of poor digestion of dietary protein and/or poor elimination of uric acid. The system is acidic and some degree of inflammation may be present.

Improving protein digestion is very important. Digestive enzymes are usually used in addition to limiting meat & chicken to 1g/kg of body weight. Alkaline-forming supplements (base powders, green extracts) and an 80% alkaline-forming and 20% acid-forming diet is recommended, along with other nutritional interventions.

Appearance:

Uric acid crystals appear as light yellow to green crystals in brightfield and bright, highly reflective crystals in darkfield that look like broken glass.

Relevance:

Uric acid crystals are one of the most commonly observed crystals in live blood samples. More than 2 or 3 small crystals in more than 5 fields (under 400x magnification) should be considered significant, or 2 or 3 large crystals (as pictured above) in one sample.

Implications:

Uric acid crystals can be seen in live blood samples of patients who also display protein linkage and/or kidney stress. Considered by some to be dried protein accumulations rather than uric acid itself, these crystals suggest a problem with protein digestion, over-acidity and/or elimination by the kidneys. Always ask about water intake.

Associated Symptoms:

♦ Joint pain and stiffness. This may range from mild tenderness and stiffness (typically worse after rest and on waking) to severe acute pain.

♦ Slow recovery after exercise, prolonged stiffness.

Interventions:

♦ Digestive Enzymes

♦ Limit protein

♦ Base powder and alkaline-forming diet.

♦ Herbal Kidney / Uric acid support, including celery seed, devil’s claw, etc.

♦ Raw vegetable juices, especially celery juice.

♦ Increase water intake. To determine necessary daily water intake (in litres): Weight (kg) ÷ 8) x 0.25.

♦ Reduce intake of purine-rich foods (e.g.: liver, kidney, heart, game meats, meat extracts, anchovies, scallops, mussels, mackerel and gravy).

♦ Reduce intake of dietary animal protein to 1g per kg body weight per day (e.g.: a 70kg adult should not exceed 70g animal protein daily).

♦ Do not consume animal protein and simple starch in the same meal.

♦ Eat meals while sitting down, do not rush while eating – remember to chew properly.

♦ Follow the diet relevant to the blood type.

Cholesterol Crystals Seen In Live Blood Analysis

Many different types of crystal formations can be observed in live blood samples and vary greatly in size, shape and colour.

 

They always appear as solid objects that are usually much larger than red blood cells.

Crystal formation in the blood is a sclerotic process that is related to inflammation. The presence of crystalline forms is often associated with high blood pressure, plaque and atherosclerosis. There are often white blood cells attached and attracted to crystal formations in the blood, attempting to engulf the crystals.

This is a favourable sign and an indication of an active immune system

 

DEALING WITH CHOLESTEROL CRYSTALS IN THE BLOOD

 

In Live Blood Analysis we view the clients live blood magnified onto a screen.

We look at the Red Blood Cells (RBCs), the white blood cells (WBC’s), the platelets and the plasma.

We compare the client’s blood picture to normal healthy blood and look for anomalies in the size & shape of the cells, if they are free floating or sticking together, too many, too few, bacterial forms, yeast markers, fibrin spicules, crystals or protoplasts in the plasma.

 

“Cholesterol Crystals in the blood” is taken from the 500+ page Live Blood Online Training Manual

 

Appearance:

Cholesterol crystals are trapezoidal structures of varying sizes that appear semi-opaque in

brightfield and semi-reflective in darkfield.

 

Relevance:

These trapezoidal crystals are usually associated with atherosclerotic plaque and considered

significant if observed during analysis. Their elimination may be stimulated by specific natural

treatment protocols.

 

Implications:

♦ Indication of possible high serum cholesterol.

♦ Possible excessive saturated fat intake.

♦ Inadequate lipid metabolism due to lipase deficiency.

♦ Atherosclerotic plaque.

 

Associated Symptoms:

♦ Fatigue

♦ May be asymptomatic (no symptoms)

♦ Poor circulation

♦ Angina

Natural Health Treatments

Natural Heath Treatments – Are they working?

Many practitioners feel like they’re working in the dark when treating chronic cases. This is because chronic cases typically take a long time to respond to treatment, and patients don’t notice an improvement in the first few months of treatment. Most successful practitioners rely on years of experience to know that their treatment is working. However, even these practitioners struggle with poor patient compliance, because if patients don’t feel better they lose faith and start looking for other alternatives.

  • How do you determine what the treatment is doing?
  • Is your treatment addressing the most important, fundamental issue in the patient’s case?
  • Have all the contributing factors and variables in the case been considered?
  • How are the patient’s diet and lifestyle influencing the effectiveness of your treatment?

These are some of the questions that natural health practitioners struggle with every day. Well, those natural health practitioners who are not using live blood analysis.

Live blood analysis can clearly show if treatment is progressing in the right direction. Changes seen in the patient’s sample will indicate whether the case is improving, and the abnormalities seen in the patient’s blood samples will highlight the most important areas to focus on. What’s more is because the patient can see for themselves that their condition is improving, they remain motivated and compliant during the whole treatment process, ensuring positive results in every case.

This is an example of a typical live and dry blood sample before and after treatment. The blood samples are clearly improving, indicating that the patient’s health is improving at a cellular level.
