What Can Live Blood Analysis Do To Help You?

Dr Okker – the tutor at Live Blood Online has been teaching LBA as well as utilising it in his practice for nearly 20 years now – he says –

“LBA will most likely be one of the most valuable tests or modalities that you can add to your practice” 

He goes on to say that “Working without LBA is like a dentist trying to work without an X-Ray machine, it’s possible to do it but having an X_Ray machine makes a dentists work much easier – AND – most patients would prefer to see a dentist that has all the necessary tools available to him or her”

Neogenesis Health Products

Please see Dr Okker’s video on Neogenesis Health Products here

If you have trained with Live Blood Online & NeoGenesis Systems you may have seen specific products by Neogenesis Health mentioned under the interventions in the manual.

These are the products that Dr Okker has been using personally in his own practice, and they are also used by most of the live blood practitioners in South Africa.

This is how the product range was initially developed.

“About 15 years ago I was in a practice with a few other natural health practitioners. One of the other practitioners was a herbalist who had a large dispensary of tinctures. At the time he was making herbal formulations for me to use in my practice for the most common LBA anomalies. 

We tested and made changes to the formulations as I was using them, and over the course of a few years we had 11 tincture formulas that worked very well in addressing the most common LB anomalies. 

I had better results in practice with these formulas than any other product I had used before, and there are a few reasons why. One of the most important reasons comes down to extract strength. Most tinctures are produced to have a 1:10 extract strength, whereas these tinctures have a 1:5 to 1:3 extract strength. 

The challenge with most tinctures, especially formulations, where a few herbs are combined, is that there is just not enough active ingredient of each herb at the recommended dose to achieve results.

So I was seeing amazing results with these products in my own practice, and at the time we had about 30-40 locally trained LBA practitioners, so we decided to make these products available to them. And that is how Neogenesis Health was formed

Now we have nearly 80 products in the range that include not only tinctures, but also a range of capsules, transdermal vitamins, and a liquid probiotic. 

We supply to natural health practitioners and about 500 independent health stores and pharmacies in South Africa, as well as direct to the public through our website. 

Some of our products are the top sellers in many of our outlets, outperforming many well known international brands, and our practitioners have had great results with them in practice – often in cases where other natural products, as well as conventional medicines have failed. 

For example, many practitioners who have worked with our natural antibiotic, Lamaria, have said that it’s the best natural antibiotic that they’ve ever used. Now with the research being conducted in Germany on Artemisia annua (which is the active ingredient in Lamaria) and Covid19, Lamaria has overtaken all our other products and has become our most popular product.

The research is not being done on Lamaria specifically, but on the active ingredient in Lamaria, which is artemisia annua, or Chinese wormwood. This is being conducted by the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Germany, and they’re testing an extract of Artemisia annua produced by ArtemiLife in the US. 

They’ve actually already shown in in-vitro studies that the extract is active against the Covid19 virus and human studies are now going to start at the University of Kentucky’s academic medical centre.

We are looking forward to seeing the results of this research.” Dr Okker

How To Amalgamate Live Blood Analysis Into Your Practice Webinar

Click here to view the latest webinar where Dr Okker discusses and advises on the best ways to amalgamate & integrate this very valuable tool into your practice.

This webinar is for live blood analysis practitioners as well as anyone interested in or considering studying live blood analysis.


This webinar is for practitioners who have not yet studied live blood analysis and are considering it, this will most likely be one of the most valuable tests or modalities that you will add to your practice.

As practitioners working in the field of natural medicine and nutrition, we need something to allow us to identify and track specific imbalances in our clients’ health, and because we are working on a completely different level from conventional medicine, the normal laboratory tests & investigations are of very little use to us. So we are often at a disadvantage, because we don’t always have the necessary tools to analyse and monitor our clients, and often rely on subjective information from the client, as well as our own experience. But in many cases, we are working in the dark, because we are not able to get the objective information that we need to confirm our suspicions, or to point us in the correct direction in every case. This is where live blood analysis is invaluable.

Live blood analysis identifies those specific imbalances that we as natural health practitioners need to identify to effectively work with our clients. Live blood analysis enables you to see exactly where the client’s problems are stemming from, you can show this to your client in a simple way that they will understand, and you can measure and track the progress during treatment. There really isn’t anything else like it, and I believe that every practitioner working in the field of natural health should be using it. Dr Okker Botha


Why do we need to detox?


There are a range of problems that can occur from toxicity.

Let’s look at some of the causes of toxicity to understand how the body becomes toxic.

We are going to examine three basic ways the body becomes toxic, it should be noted that although these processes are explained individually they can and do all occur simultaneously.

  1. Toxification by natural waste product.

Toxification by natural waste product is where the body accumulates a build up of the natural waste product from the cell, this is called nucleic waste: Water enters the cell via passive transport, the water then reacts with the Internal Cell Structure and the Nucleus. The product of the reaction between water, Internal Cell Structure and the Nucleus is Nucleic Waste.

This can occur because:

A. Low liver and Kidney function means that waste is not being extracted out of the intercellular fluid  and blood.

When liver and kidney function is low the intercellular fluid becomes contaminated with waste products. Instead of just water entering the cell, the water becomes a combination of water and nucleic waste. This causes changes in the reaction inside the cell. Now there is a water, Internal cell structure and nucleus reaction, which is not how the cell is supposed to work. The cell is no longer operating efficiently and the metabolic energy being used is wasteful.

B. Toxin build-up on the plasma membrane restricts the waste product from leaving the interior of the cells.

External toxin build up happens when toxins begin to accumulate on the outside of the cell. One of the causes of this is when the membrane voltage is poor; the toxins then stick to the membrane. This deprives the cell of the natural flow of water into it and also restricts the exit of the nucleic waste. Once again cell function is compromised so the cell can no longer function correctly. The process is cyclic, the more the toxins build up the less efficient the cell becomes and therefore, the longer this goes on, the harder it is to reverse the process.

There are two processes the body uses to solve this problem.

                      i.Receiving from external sources what is required to raise the membrane voltage.

                     ii.The white blood cells.

      2. Toxification by low level artificial toxins

Toxification by low level artificial toxins is where a toxin penetrates the cell membrane and enters into the internal structure. Toxins can achieve this in times of low cell integrity. White blood cells play a part in this operation.

White blood cells clean the toxins off of the plasma membrane of the cells. White blood cells damage the membrane during the process of removal leaving it temporarily vulnerable and toxins can enter the cell. 

Once a toxin has entered into the internal structure of the cell it causes problems. To eject the toxin the cell requires metabolic energy to perform active transport; that is, the cell needs to use its own energy to eject the invader. If the cell does not have the spare energy to do this, toxins accumulate.

  1. Toxification causing genetic alteration

Toxification causing genetic alteration is the most serious form of cellular contamination that the body may be subjected to. We have already looked at toxins entering a cell and causing problems, but what if that toxin was an artificial hormone or carcinogenic substance?

The problem now becomes a major issue because some toxins have the potential to alter the coding of the cell. When this happens the result is that the nucleus and the internal structure incorporating the extra coding result in a new nucleus and a new internal structure. This is a serious problem.

A lot of the time it takes years before the effect becomes visible to the individual. These types of toxins lead to cancer and genetic disorders. 

Toxification of this nature is difficult to correct but not impossible.

Some of the effects of this type of toxin contamination are already becoming evident in the western world where the use of genetic substances and hormones have been in use without public knowledge for some time now. 

It has become scientific reality that the new genetic pattern is passed on from parents to their siblings.



We have been asked how a possible virus infection would appear in live blood analysis. A virus infection would appear in live blood analysis as an increase in white blood cells (the immune system at work) and in the dry blood (oxidative stress test) as viral spiking.

Appearance ; Black fibrin lines that run into PPP’s (white clots) like spikes

This anomaly is most often observed in viral conditions.

When the fibrin line extends across the PPP like a bridge, it is associated with virus and/or herpes virus infection.

Some researchers have correlated this pattern with the presence of liver stress/toxicity

What we can and cannot do with live blood analysis

Microscope for Live Blood Analysis

The January live blood analysis online training course has begun, you can still join us and catch up with the recording of week 1 – more info here.

On week 1 we go through some important information on live blood analysis to help the analyst understand what one can and cannot do with this technique and what we are able to assess by looking at a client’s blood. 

We also look at some videos on how to take blood samples correctly for live and dried blood analysis as well as what settings to use on the microscope to view the samples.

Dr Okker shows us how important it is to use the correct technique for taking blood samples if the blood samples are not taken in exactly the same way every time we may get different results. There shouldn’t be much variation in the LBA results in the same client from one day to the next unless there was an unusual stress on the clients system between the two tests.

We learn that live blood analysis is not used as a diagnostic tool we don’t look at a live blood sample and make a diagnosis of a specific medical condition from what we are observing in the blood. What we are concerned with is the underlying imbalances that preceded the medical condition and allowed for it to develop in the first place.

Dr Okker also points out that live blood analysis is especially helpful as part of a preventative approach to healthcare. It is very useful for prevention and is a valuable test to those who are proactive about their health. Many so-called preventative measures are really just early detection measures. For example, having a regular blood sugar test is not part of prevention. The test will only show an imbalance once the body has failed at all it’s 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 a preventative measures in place years before the abnormal result. 

So live blood analysis 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.

Seeing free radical damage and toxicity with dry blood analysis and The Oxidative Stress Test (OST)

Dry blood analysis (also referred to as The Oxidative Stress Test OST) is covered in detail in the live blood online training course.

By using dry blood analysis we are able to assess oxidative stress and see many other health anomalies.

In dry blood analysis eight drops of live blood are placed on a slide and left to dry before being viewed under the microscope. When the blood is placed on the slide with a specific technique, there is a natural centrifugal activity whereby the different elements in the blood spin out into rings, depending on their specific gravity. Organs near the centre of the body create light PPP’s (white clots/areas – see below) that don’t spin out very far, whereas heavier PPP’s are created by lymph and skin conditions that spin out around the outside of the layer.

We view the sample under the microscope looking for these PPP’s (polymerized protein puddles) as well as other anomalies. PPP’s show as soft white clots, they  may appear as white dots, lakes, or rivers, and indicate free radical activity and toxicity. 

The size and shape of the PPPs is also suggestive of the nature of the condition and can indicate the extent of oxidative damage and oxidative stress in the system. 

There is a very distinct difference between the layered dried blood sample of a healthy individual and that of a chronically ill patient. The healthy sample is a solid mat of pinkish-red dried blood with a strong, well-interconnected fibrin network (left).

In the presence of degeneration, toxins and other imbalances, the dried blood sample shows many (PPPs) as well as other abnormalities that can be indicative of certain systemic conditions (right).


PPP’s are soft clots made from polymerized proteins, they  may appear as white dots, lakes, or rivers, and indicate free radical activity and toxicity. 

Small PPP’s (2 microns) disbursed throughout the sample indicate possible allergic sensitivities and are related to hypersensitivities and allergic reactions. 

Larger PPP’s (30 microns more or less) are related to physical stress, emotional stress, mental strain and physical strain. 

Large PPP’s (40+ microns) are related to degenerative conditions.

The larger the ppp’s and the greater number, the more serious the condition. 


In dry blood analysis the eight drops of live blood (taken with a special technique), are placed on a slide and left to dry before being viewed under the microscope. 

Each drop of blood (dot on the slide) is called a “layer”. The first and largest drop is Layer 1 and the last and smallest drop is Layer 8. 

The larger layers are related to shallow, temporary, and acute issues. The smaller layers generally relate to more deep seated, long term or chronic situations.


This is the term referring to concentric circles in the layer (like on a target) that coincide with different parts of the body. For example, Ring 1 is in the centre of each layer, and Ring 8 is on the outside of the circle (the largest ring) of each layer. Ring 8 represents the outside of the body (skin) and each inward ring moves progressively inwards to the inside of the body.

By applying this ring to each layer of blood we are able to see where in the body the anomalies are showing.

Ring 1 (centre) represents reproductive organs, ovaries and prostate. In men, this would be related to prostate and bladder. In women, patterns here are related to anomalies in the reproductive system. 

Rings 2 and 3 show allergic hypersensitivities. 

Rings 3, 4 & 5 relate to the vital organs such as kidney, liver, gallbladder, spleen, bladder, stomach, colon, and digestion organs. Bone and joint anomalies may show in these rings.

Ring 4 relates mainly to lung or breast issues. Possible lung problems could be congestion, flu, chronic bronchitis, smoker. Breast issues could relate to breast tenderness, cysts, fibroids, lumps or problems with implants. 

Ring 5 may show anomalies relating to lymph nodes, lymph or edema. This could also be related to water retention or toxic kidneys. This ring can also show lung, breast and hormone conditions. Bone and joint issues may show in these rings. 

Ring 4, 5 and 6 relates to Thyroid and Parathyroid conditions.

Rings 6, 7 and 8 relate to the outside of the body such as skin, lymph, eyes, nose, throat, mouth, head, brain, hips, and feet. Rings 6 and 7 also relate to the connective tissues and the lymphatic and circulatory systems. Heavy metal toxicity also shows up in this ring as a dark shadow or wave at the edge of the ring. Physical or emotional stress may show up as skin problems and this ring could also suggest dental issues. 

First Direct Evidence Shows Bacteria Change Shape Inside Humans to Avoid Antibiotics


Widespread antibiotic use is largely to blame for the emergence of antibiotic resistant bacteria, which is currently one of the biggest threats to global health. Not only does antibiotic resistance already cause an estimated 700,000 deaths a year, it’s also made numerous infections, including pneumonia, tuberculosis, and gonorrhoea, harder to treat.

Without knowing how to stop bacteria from developing antibiotic resistance, it’s predicted that preventable diseases could cause 10 million deaths a year by 2050.

Some of the ways that bacteria become resistant to antibiotics is through changes in the bacteria’s genome. For example, bacteria can pump the antibiotics out, or they can break the antibiotics down. They can also stop growing and divide, which makes them difficult to spot for the immune system.

However, our research has focused on another little known method that bacteria use to become antibiotic resistant. We have directly shown that bacteria can “change shape” in the human body to avoid being targeted by antibiotics – a process that requires no genetic changes for the bacteria to continue growing.

Virtually all bacteria are surrounded by a structure called the cell wall. The wall is like a thick jacket which protects against environmental stresses and prevents the cell from bursting. It gives bacteria a regular shape (for example, a rod or a sphere), and helps them divide efficiently.

Human cells don’t possess a cell wall (or “jacket”). Because of this, it’s easy for the human immune system to recognise bacteria as an enemy because its cell wall is noticeably different. And, because the cell wall exists in bacteria but not in humans, it’s an excellent target for some of our best and most commonly used antibiotics, such as penicillin. In other words, antibiotics targeting the wall can kill bacteria without harming us.

However, bacteria can occasionally survive without their cell wall. If the surrounding conditions are able to protect the bacteria from bursting, they can turn into so-called “L-forms”, which are bacteria that don’t have a cell wall. These bacteria were discovered in 1935 by Emmy Klieneberger-Nobel, who named them after the Lister Institute where she was working at the time.

In a lab, we often use sugar to create a suitably protective environment. In the human body, this change in form is typically triggered by antibiotics that target the bacteria’s cell wall, or certain immune molecules – such as lysozyme, a molecule that’s present in our tears which helps protect us from bacterial infections.

Bacteria without a cell wall often become fragile and lose their regular shape. However, they also become partially invisible to our immune system, and completely resistant to all types of antibiotics that specifically target the cell wall.

Scientists long suspected that L-form switching might contribute to recurrent infections by helping bacteria hide from the immune system and resist the antibiotics. However, it was difficult to find evidence for this theory due to the elusive nature of L-forms and lack of appropriate methods to detect them.

Watching bacteria change shape

Our study, published in Nature Communications, looked specifically at bacterial species associated with recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs). It found that many different bacterial species – including E. coli and Enterococcus – can indeed survive as L-forms in the human body.

This is something that has never been directly proven before. We were able to detect these sneaky bacteria using fluorescent probes that recognise bacterial DNA.

We tested urine samples from elderly patients with recurrent UTIs by growing them in a petri dish high in sugars. Not only did this environment help protect bacteria from bursting, it also isolated the L-form bacteria that were present in these samples.

In a separate experiment, we were able to see the whole process take place in living zebrafish embryos in the presence of antibiotics.

Importantly, our study shows that antibiotics need to be tested in conditions more reflective of the human body. The ones that are currently used in the medical laboratory don’t provide enough protection for delicate L-forms to survive.

Before we can fully understand how important L-form switching is compared to other forms of antibiotic resistance, further research using more patients will be needed. It will also be important to investigate what role L-forms may play in other recurrent infections, such as sepsis or pulmonary infections.

Until now, research into L-forms has been a controversial field, but our hope is that these findings will motivate more research into L-forms in disease situations. Our hope is that these findings will help find a way to clear these sneaky bacteria from our body.

Combining cell wall active antibiotics with ones that would kill L-forms might be one solution of fighting antibiotic resistant infections.

Our battle with bacteria is ongoing. As we come up with new strategies to fight them, they come up with ways to fight back. Our study highlights yet another way that bacteria adapt that we’ll need to take into account in our continuing battle with infectious disease.
