We can’t identify specific bacteria under the microscope. We can only see their morphology, and since many bacteria look the same under a microscope we can’t say with 100% certainty what specific bacteria it is. In natural medicine the treatment is usually the same, regardless of the type of bacteria, so identifying the specific bacteria is not as important as in conventional medicines where certain antibiotics are used for certain bacteria. We also focus more on identifying why the bacteria is there and what imbalances in the system allowed for the infection to take place. This is quite different to the conventional approach.
