We are on week 1 of the September training course and our tutor is
going through some very important information on blood analysis to help students understand what one can and cannot do with this technique and what they will be able to assess by looking at clients’ blood.

We also viewed a few videos on how to take blood samples correctly for live and dry blood analysis and what settings to use on a microscope to view these samples.


Our tutor then went on to explain that live blood analysis (LBA) is especially helpful as part of a preventative approach to healthcare and is a valuable test to those who are pro-active about their health.

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 minimise the likelihood of serious conditions developing in the future.”

One of the questions that came was – “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 significantly more compliant in making 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 people motivated.
