Week 8 on the Live Blood Analysis Training Course

We are on week 8 of the live blood analysis training course and now starting to study dried blood cell analysis which is also referred to as the Oxidative Stress Test (OST).

In dry blood test analysis (or dried blood analysis), we leave 8 layers (spots) of blood to dry naturally on a slide, we then observe the anomalies seen.

We are looking at anomalies that could be signs of allergies, adrenal stress, psychological stress and intestinal irritation as well as reproductive organ, bowel, vital organ, lymphatic and thyroid imbalances.

Heavy metal toxicity anomaly as seen above.

Appearance:

Heavy metal toxicity appears as black points at the edge of the layer, or as a dark shore or waves.

Cause & Interventions:

Strongly indicative of heavy metal toxicity, this can be from the environment (pollution, contaminated food, water or air, smoking and passive smoking) and also amalgams.

Points at the edge of the layer usually indicate the presence of lead and/or amalgams.

Dark waves deeper into the layer indicate that metals are being held in the fatty tissues, brain and nervous system, which is associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

Week 5 on the Live Blood Online Training Course- white blood cell viability

We are on week 5 of the Live Blood Online Training Course and looking at white blood cell (neutrophil) anomalies.

Neutrophil viability is one of the most important assessments used to determine the state of the immune system.

The main criteria used for determining the viability of a neutrophil include size, condition and activity.

A neutrophil should be approximately twice as big as a red blood cell (RBC), approximately 14 microns in diameter. The main determinants in assessing the condition of a neutrophil are the condition of the cell’s border and segmentation. The border should be fairly smooth and regular and the neutrophil should not be hypersegmented nor macrocytic.

The most important factor to observe when assessing neutrophil viability is activity.

Here we look at the granules within the cell’s cytoplasm. Ideally, there should be many of them actively streaming within the cell.

The cell itself should also be stretching out its membrane in irregular shapes to move around actively in the plasma. Typically, neutrophil viability should be at least 75{0ad5881c2192913025db5bf2180b2e0b17ede26560c7c351a451156c0b06bc98}.

Non-viable neutrophils are often round, symmetrical and immobile.   

Implications:

Poor neutrophil viability may be caused by many factors – please join the Live Blood Online Training Course to find out more.

pH of urine and blood

pH of urine and blood

The pH of urine and blood is extremely important and is now, more and more, being considered an important indicator of one’s health.

In The pH Miracle: Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health by Robert O. Young, Ph.D. & Shelly Redford Young, we find this statement: “the single measurement most important to your health is the pH of your blood and tissues – how acidic or alkaline it is.” Tracking your pH of your urine is easy to do, and takes very little time.

You will need a box of pH test strips and a journal to track your progress.

Most health practitioners recommend doing a daily pH test for 30 days to give a general idea of your alkaline/acid measurements.

Keeping track of your ‘numbers’ will measure your levels and monitor your progress over time to determine if you need to make changes or not and to see if what you are doing is working.

The pH of blood must be tightly regulated in a very narrow range between 7.35 and 7.45. Below or above this range means symptoms and disease. Death is associated with blood pH imbalances of 7.80 and above or 7.0 and below.

Testing your urine pH can give you an early indication and warning that your body is over acidic.

What the pH of urine and blood can tell you

The pH of urine indicates how the body is working to maintain the proper pH of the blood. The pH of urine indicates the efforts of the body via the kidneys, adrenals, lungs and gonads to regulate pH through the buffering system.

This can provide a fairly accurate picture of body chemistry, because the kidneys filter out the buffer salts of pH regulation and provide values based on what the body is eliminating.

Urine pH can vary from around 4.5 to 9.0 for its extremes, but the ideal range is 5.8 to 7.2.

First pH of urine Test in the morning:

Test your first urine of the morning before eating or drinking, this is the urine that has been stored in your bladder during the night and will usually be more acidic.

Briefly place the pH strip in the urine mid-stream and wait 15 seconds to read your pH.

The pH number of the morning reading should be 6.8 – 7.2

If your pH of urine is below 6.8, you could be overly acidic and low in alkaline buffers.

To increase your alkalinity you may want to source a more alkaline water, and introduce organic greens high in the minerals calcium, magnesium and potassium into your diet.

If your pH of urine are 7.2 or higher, you have a healthy reading and you appear to have the alkaline buffers needed to neutralize acidity in your diet and lifestyle.

Second Morning pH of urine Test:

Take this second urine pH test after drinking water or a green drink but before eating any food.

Repeat Daily for Thirty Days (and more).

Take the first and second urine of the day and record the average of them both. This is the number you will use when you track your trend over 30 days.

This will enable you to see the trend over time and help you to measure how alkaline you are.

These tests are able to indicate how effective our digestive system was able to deal with what we drank and ate the previous night/day.

When we are eating an acidic diet, these numbers will tend to be low.

When we start alkalizing the numbers will start to increase and over time, will begin to sustain themselves.

Your second morning urine should always be better than your first morning urine, ideally between 7.2 – 7.4.

Live blood analysis microscope

Live blood analysis microscope

Not all microscopes are created equally. For optimal performance your live blood analysis microscope specifications need to be suited to its particular application.

Naturopathic microscopy involves the analysis of live and dry blood samples in brightfield and darkfield, each with its own set of unique microscope requirements.

Although most microscopes essentially work on similar principles, there is a great degree of variation in optical configurations, illumination and ultimately image quality. Live blood analysis microscopy in darkfield and brightfield is a highly specialised technique, requiring a very particular set of specifications.

A suitable optical and illumination assembly must be in place to ensure the best results in viewing live blood in darkfield and brightfield.

Any compromise in the setup of the system will result in an inferior image and the user not being able to detect all the important anomalies.

Many suppliers on the internet claim to supply darkfield and brightfield live blood analysis microscopes suitable for live blood analysis but the supplier’s knowledge is limited. Only a specialist will know the requirements for a live blood analysis microscope.

So it is very important to only buy a live blood analysis microscope form a specialist supplier who understands the requirements and specifications for a live blood analysis microscope that will ensure the best results in viewing live blood in darkfield and brightfield.

Many practitioners make the mistake of buying a microscope from a company that claims their microscopes are suitable for live blood analysis microscopy and then find out that this is not the case, they are not able to see many of the anomalies and therefore not able to perform live blood analysis to its full potential.

It is not that the company is deliberately cheating the practitioner, it is more a lack of specialist knowledge.

If your microscope has not been supplied by us, it’s likely that you won’t be able to detect everything that can be seen in the blood.

Don’t let this happen to you if you are looking for a microscope!

At Live Blood Online we know exactly what specifications are needed in a live blood analysis microscope for it to perform optimally as a live blood analysis microscope system.

Don’t buy a microscope until you have seen this video.

We supply the best microscopes for live blood analysis worldwide AND if you buy your microscopes from us you get the interactive 12 week training course for half price! (We are also currently offering free shipping on microscopes)

Week 1 on the Live Blood Analysis Online Training Course

Week 1 on the Live Blood Analysis Online Training Course

In week 1 of the Live Blood Analysis Online Training Course we are learning how to use the microscope and get a perfect blood sample every time.

Consistency is very important in live blood analysis for for best results.

We are learning a lot about live blood analysis (LBA), especially how valuable and helpful it is as part of a preventative approach

Many of the so-called preventative measures are really just early detection measures.

For example, having a regular blood sugar test is not part of prevention – it will only show an imbalance once the body has failed at all its attempts to regulate the blood sugar.

When you get an abnormal blood sugar reading it is at quite a late stage already and one should really have had preventative measures in place years before the abnormal result.

“LBA detects imbalances that may lead to disease and one can then implement measures to help minimize the likelihood of serious conditions developing in the future.”

One of the questions we often get asked is – “Why is the visual impact of LBA so important?

“The visual impact of LBA is very important. It was shown in a study that people who were given the actual images of their damaged arteries were much more likely to make necessary changes to their diet and lifestyle than those who only saw the images once.”

“Being able to see the impact of poor dietary and lifestyle choices and to refer back to those images has a very powerful effect on keeping us motivated.

Dark-field microscopy of blood from healthy individuals revealed the existence of pleomorphic microorganisms. These bacteria exhibited limited growth and susceptibility to antibiotics and could be detected by fluorescent in situ hybridization and flow cytometry. They were further characterized by analysis of their 16S rRNA and gyrB genes.

In our search for spirochetes involved in Alzheimer’s disease (13), we observed pleomorphic bacteria in the blood of healthy human subjects by dark-field microscopy. This was a surprising finding since it is generally acknowledged that the bloodstream in healthy humans is a sterile environment (7) except when there is a breach in the integrity of the tissue membranes (6). However, the concept of the occurrence of bacteria in the blood of healthy humans is now more plausible because of cultivation-independent laboratory approaches. The main techniques employed in such studies include PCR amplification and sequencing of the16S ribosomal DNA (rDNA). These methods have revealed the presence of a wide diversity of microorganisms in the environment, and indeed within the human body (12). In this report we present evidence based on molecular phylogenetic techniques and light and electron microscopy, as well as other conventional microbiological methods, for the existence of a population of bacteria in healthy human blood. In view of the apparent controversial nature of our findings, it was encouraging to note the recent report of Nikkari et al. (14), who detected blood-associated bacterial rDNA sequences by using real-time PCR methods and a probe targeting conserved regions of bacterial 16S rDNA, and an earlier report by Tedeshi et al. (16) on the presence of pleomorphic bacteria as intraerythrocytic parasites in clinically healthy human subjects.

For light microscopic examination, blood samples from 25 healthy volunteers were drawn in a Vacutainer tube with no anticoagulants (Becton Dickinson, Franklin Lakes, N.J.); blood was drawn in the conventional manner involving antisepsis of the skin and avoidance of any introduction of external microorganisms by contamination. (Since external contamination was always a possibility, particular care and precaution were exercised at all times to avoid this. The specific procedures, as well as appropriate controls, are specified throughout the text.) A wet mount of the serum from the clotted blood of each sample, fresh or incubated at 30°C for between 5 to 7 days, was examined by dark-field microscopy (Leitz Dialux 20) for pleomorphic bacteria.

Pleomorphism and Germ Theory Explained

Pleomorphism and germ theory

The accepted biological paradigm today, which has led to the development of the pleomorphism and germ theory, is Monomorphism (Gr. mónos: single + morphē: form).

This paradigm, developed by Louis Pasteur and other scientists, states that all microorganisms only have one possible form and do not have the ability to evolve into different types of organisms.

The germ theory followed, which states that specific diseases are caused by infection with specific microorganisms and are cured when the microorganisms have been destroyed.

 

This led to the development and widespread use of antibiotics, animal testing and many of the other atrocities of modern medicine.

 

Pleomorphism, the polar opposite of Monomorphism, was developed by scientists like Antoine Béchamp and Günther Enderlein and states that microorganisms have various life cycles and stages of development that can range between viruses, bacteria, yeast and fungi, depending on the type of microorganism and the environment it is presented with.

 

What is interesting is that pleomorphism and its proponents has been entirely written out of history books and encyclopedias and is not as much as mentioned, even for historical interest, in universities and training institutions.

Antoine Béchamp

Pleomorphism and the Germ Theory Explained

 

We will begin our overview of the history of pleomorphism at the beginning, with French scientist Antoine Béchamp (1816-1908).

Béchamp was a Master of Pharmacy, Doctor of Science, Doctor of Medicine, Professor of Medical Chemistry and Pharmacy, Fellow and Professor of Physics and Toxicology, Professor of Biological Chemistry and Dean of the Faculty of Medicine.

He was actively involved in his biological research at the same time as Louis Pasteur.

Ten years of experimentation led Béchamp to the conclusion that the tiny “molecular granulations” that have been observed in the cells of plants and animals by other researchers, were living elements.

He called them “microzymas” (small ferments), due to their ability to ferment sugar.

He continued his research over another 13 years, developing the Theory of Microzymas. This theory states that the microzyma is an independently living element, found in all living organisms and survives after the death of the organism. It functions to both build and recycle the organism.

It is the builder and destroyer of cells; it precedes life at the cellular level and is the foundation of all biological organization. In healthy conditions, the microzymas have a beneficial relationship with the organism and fermentation occurs normally.

However, microzymas are very sensitive to biological signals, responding to changes in the terrain, especially pH. When the terrain becomes compromised, the microzymas become what Béchamp called “morbidly evolved”, changing into microscopic forms (bacteria) that contribute to the development of illness. Béchamp believed this characteristic to be linked to the function of the microzymas to recycle the body upon death.

The change in the terrain is interpreted by the microzymas that the organism is already dead, which is a signal for them to change into the “morbidly evolved” forms capable of more vigorous fermentative breakdown.

Béchamp was also able to show that compounds such as alcohol and acetic acid are produced in the tissues of all organisms as a direct result of the fermentation activity of the microzymas.

The difference between the two theories is quite clear:

Pasteur’s germ theory sees disease as being caused by external factors, whilst Béchamp’s pleomorphic theory considers the internal environment as the most important contributing factor.

Béchamp did not deny that the air carried germs, but maintained that they were not primarily responsible, and certainly not necessary, for disease. They are only present because of the compromised terrain. A good analogy was made by Rudolph Virchow: “… mosquitoes seek the stagnant water, but do not cause the pool to become stagnant.”

 

Claude Bernard

A researcher worth mentioning, who preceded Antoine Béchamp, was French physiologist Claude Bernard (1813-1878).

He was one of the first scientists of his time to see that disease is not simply determined by the germs involved or the symptoms present. He believed disease to be a general, underlying condition, affected and determined by the body’s internal environment, which he called the “Terrain”.

The state of the terrain is determined by four factors, namely:

1) its acid/alkaline balance;

2) its electric/magnetic charge;

3) its level of poisoning;

4) its nutritional status.

 

Royal Raymond Rife

During the 1920’s R.R. Rife was researching a method to treat disease by destroying microorganisms through radio frequency radiation. To help him determine the correct frequency, he designed and built a most incredible microscope (consisting of 5682 parts) that used polarizing prisms to “stain” the organisms with light. He then used a radio frequency beam ray to destroy the organisms, which he used successfully to cure many serious conditions, including polio, TB and cancer.

He is relevant to the history of pleomorphism in that he was able to isolate a virus he found in cancerous tissue and transform it into a fungus and then into a bacterium. He was able to repeat this hundreds of times and showed that the pleomorphic development of microorganisms goes beyond the bacterial level to the fungal stage.

 

Günther Enderlein

 

German zoologist and bacteriologist Prof. Dr. Günther Enderlein (1872-1968) is still considered by many as the father of pleomorphism. He based his work on that of Antoine Béchamp and conducted research for over 60 years, which led him to several remarkable discoveries.

He showed that the protit, not the cell, is the smallest biological unit of life. Protits (Béchamp’s microzymas) are small, living protein particles found in all the cells, blood and other fluids of all living organisms. They can not be destroyed and survives after the death of the organism, performing the function of decomposition.

 

 

He also found that the blood is not sterile and that it contains tiny life forms, capable of evolving into more complex, pathogenic (disease-causing) organisms when conditions are favourable.

 

Much of his discoveries he made because he was looking at live blood in darkfield. This helped him to see that in healthy conditions the protits remain small and beneficial, working with the body in a symbiotic relationship. However, when presented with a disturbed environment, the protits are able to develop into more complex, pathogenic forms, including bacteria and fungi. The specific symptoms and forms of disease depend on the level of development of the pathogenic forms, which is governed by the state of the terrain.

Enderlein referred to all the possible developmental forms of the protits as the Endobiont. He discovered that two microbes exist, and has always existed, in all vertebrate mammals. These are Mucor racemosus Fresen, which he called the primary parasite, and Aspergillus niger van Tieghem.

Mucor is found in the blood and other cells and when in its beneficial, primitive stages, it is responsible for the coagulation of blood. When in its pathogenic stages, Mucor leads to congestion, cancer and many other degenerative diseases.

Aspergillus, in its primitive stages, is responsible for the regulation of the citric acid cycle and calcium metabolism.

Enderlein believed that the infection of mammals with Aspergillus allowed for the development of skeletal structures.

Aspergillus can be found in the bones, connective tissue and lymphatics. Pathogenic phases of Aspergillus are responsible for para-tubercular diseases, connective tissue disorders, arthritis and skin problems.

Enderlein showed that while exogenous microorganisms are monomorphic and produce recognizable, communicable diseases, other non-communicable, chronic diseases are caused by the pathogenic evolution of the pleomorphic Endobiont.

This evolution is governed by the state of the terrain, particularly the pH.

The Anartatic Law of Interdependence states that the progressive development of microorganisms from the protit stages into their higher and highest stages requires a progressively descending pH.

This process, once started, is then supported by the Endobiont itself, which produces acid wastes from its metabolism of protein. Each microorganism produces a specific organic acid: Aspergillus produces citric acid and Mucor produces lactic acid.

It is important to note that Enderlein described the evolution of Mucor and Aspergillus, both of which find their culminant (highest stage of development) as a fungal organism.

Other organisms that may also be pleomorphic do not necessarily have their culminants in the fungal phase, but rather in the bacterial phase (e.g. Staphylococcus aureus).

 

Gaston Naessens

Quebec scientist Gaston Naessens, who is currently involved in research, has also contributed greatly to pleomorphism. He designed a special microscope, called the “Somatoscope”, which enables him to observe changes in living tissue at very high magnification and resolution.

He, like Enderlein and Béchamp, discovered small living particles, which he called “somatids”. He has identified two somatid cycles: the microcycle and the macrocycle. Only the microcycle occurs in health and consists of only three stages, where all three forms are symbiotic. The macrocycle occurs in disease and consists of sixteen stages, including bacteria-like and fungus-like forms.

The culminant fungal phases of Mucor racemosus and Aspergillus niger only occupy the blood after death as it requires an acidic environment.

There are transitional mycelial phases that can however be observed in the blood.

These phases represent the highest phase of Mucor’s development in the living host and their presence is indicative of severe conditions.

Blood Sample

Week 1 Is All About How to Use a Microscope and Take A Good Blood Sample

We are on the first week of the online training course and our tutor is showing us how to use a microscope as well as explaining the importance of taking a blood sample correctly so as to get consistent results.

(Consistency is very important in live blood analysis)

How to use a microscope and take a good blood sample
Our tutor shows us by video – all the components of the microscope and how to use them. For information on microscopes http://livebloodonline.com/microscopes/

Microscopes designed for viewing live blood have several features not seen in regular microscopes. They have a high-resolution video camera attached for taking videos and pictures of the blood, this is for clients to keep as well as for future comparison, reference, and monitoring.

Successful evaluation of blood morphologies depends not only on the accurate identification and interpretation of blood signs but also on the correct sampling technique. It is critical to the reliability of the test, to the practitioner’s reputation and their client’s well being that they are able to take blood samples correctly and safely.

The blood sample is produced with a lancet in the same way as in a blood sugar test. This is taken from a finger and is a simple procedure.

Many factors can affect the outcome of the test, such as damaging the blood cells during collection and the inclusion of artifacts It is the practitioner’s responsibility to ensure that they are so efficient in taking blood samples that their results are repeatable.
This procedure to correctly and safely take samples for both live blood and layered dried blood evaluation is covered in detail in lesson 1.

This ensures that practitioners of live blood analysis trained by Live Blood Online are trained to take consistent specimens and thereby get consistent results.
