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 are trapezoidal structures of varying sizes that appear semi-opaque in
brightfield and semi-reflective in darkfield.
These trapezoidal crystals are usually associated with atherosclerotic plaque and considered
significant if observed during analysis. Their elimination may be stimulated by specific natural
♦ Indication of possible high serum cholesterol.
♦ Possible excessive saturated fat intake.
♦ Inadequate lipid metabolism due to lipase deficiency.
♦ Atherosclerotic plaque.
♦ May be asymptomatic (no symptoms)
♦ Poor circulation
