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.
