Week 12 on the live blood analysis training course

A Typical Live Blood Analysis Case

This is a case study from one of our live blood analysis training courses where we use dark field microscopy as well as bright field microscopy to perform live and dried blood analysis on a client..

The client (female) suffered with recurrent bladder infections that started soon after getting married and had been getting progressively worse over the years.

The infections have involved the kidneys on a few occasions and have not responded to any natural products that she tried.

She follows a fairly healthy diet and lifestyle. She has tried eliminating specific foods from her diet in case they may have been to blame.

Nothing made a significant difference.

This is what showed in her live blood cell analysis:

Protein Linkage: Grade: 3/5

Chain-like formations of lemon-shaped RBCs.
Commonly associated with impaired digestion of dietary protein, from either excess protein intake or low proteolytic enzyme production by the pancreas. Especially associated with difficulty digesting dense animal protein (such as meat & chicken).
Anisocytosis:  Grade: 4/5

RBCs that vary in size, some larger and some smaller than normal.
Most often due to vitamin B12 and/or folic acid deficiency, iron deficiency, trace mineral deficiency and in some cases certain disease states and inherited forms of anemia.
Cloud Patterns:  Grade: 4/5

RBCs with indentations appearing similar to cloud drawings.
These forms indicate the presence of inflammation and are connected to an acidic pH and trace mineral deficiency. May also indicate high homocysteine levels.
Empty WBCs:  Grade: 3/5

WBCs with very sparse cytoplasm forming a thin border around the cell.
This occurs just before rupture of the WBC and is associated with a severely stressed immune system, parasitism and an unbalanced terrain.
Neutrophils – Cohesion:  Grade: 2/5

Two or more neutrophils stuck together.
This occurs due to increased chemostaxis (chemical messaging between neutrophils) and indicates possible infection, inflammation and some disease states
Neutrophils – Count Increased:  Grade: 3/5
The most common cause for an increased neutrophil count is an acute (usually bacterial) infection.Inflammation in the body can also lead to increased neutrophil levels.Excessive stress can also increase neutrophil numbers.A high neutrophil count may also be due to a number of different disease states
Neutrophils – Disrupted:  Grade: 2/5

Disrupted neutrophils is most often indicative of chronic stress on the immune system, parasitism of the WBCs and an unbalanced, acidic terrain.
May also be associated with toxicity and severe allergic reactions.
Neutrophils – Nonviable:  Grade: 3/5

One of the most important assessments to determine the state of the immune system. Neutrophils should move around actively. Round, symmetrical, immobile neutrophils are non-viable and suggest an underactive immune system. It may be caused by: mineral deficiencies, ongoing infections & antibiotics, smoking, alcohol, medication and sugar intake and digestive weakness. Stress, lack of exercise, poor sleeping patterns and yeast overgrowth can also contribute.
Bowel Pattern:  Grade: 4/5

Observed in Layers 4 – 8
A cluster of round white holes in the centre of the sample.
This indicates bowel challenges that may include bowel inflammation (colitis, enteritis), leaky gut syndrome, strictures, diverticula, irritable bowel syndrome and poor tissue integrity. The presence of bowel patterns in more than 3 layers indicates that supporting the digestive system is a high priority.
Dark Centre:  Grade: 4/5
Observed in Layers 4 – 8
The centre of the sample appears significantly darker than the rest of the sample.This is due to bowel toxicity, often coupled with digestive insufficiency and/or Candida. Possible leaky gut syndrome and poor immunity is usually a consequence of bowel toxicity. This implies that the ability of the digestive system to eliminate toxins is compromised and that the intestinal
flora is not balanced.

Live Blood Analysis Practitioners

Live Blood Analysis Practitioners

What do live blood analysis practitioners do?

Live blood analysis practitioners observe their clients live blood cells on a screen with the use of a high powered specialized blood analysis microscope with camera.

A tiny pinprick of blood is put on to a glass slide and then viewed on the screen.

The blood analysis microscope and camera project a picture of the live blood cells onto a screen to be seen by the live blood analysis practitioner and client together, allowing the pictures and videos to be recorded.

In live blood analysis, the blood is not dried or stained beforehand, so the blood elements can be seen in their living state.

The live blood analysis practitioners and client look at the variations in the size, shape, ratio, and fine structure of the red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and other blood structures.

The insights gained from the live blood analysis, correlated with other clinical data, enables live blood analysis practitioners to understand their clients individual state of health on a much deeper level.

As a result, an appropriate course of natural treatment and lifestyle/dietary interventions can be formulated and furthermore, the effectiveness of various treatment combinations can be tested and progress can be monitored by observation of changes through further live blood analysis.

Nutritional microscopy uses live blood analysis to achieve optimum health naturally through diet and nutrition.

Dried blood analysis or The Oxidative Stress Test is another very valuable test in live blood cell analysis. The Oxidative Stress Test (Dry Blood Analysis) allows live blood analysis practitioners to view the level of free radical damage/oxidative stress and toxins in the body.

Many clients will not follow the advice that their live blood analysis practitioners give them and need visual proof that their unnatural habits are having a negative impact on their health.

Live blood analysis allows live blood analysis practitioners to do just that.

Dried Blood Analysis

Dry Blood Rings

Dried Blood Analysis

Dried Blood Analysis or the Oxidative Stress Test (OST) was developed in Europe in the 1920’s and has since been used by medical practitioners and naturopaths in many countries across the world.

In the 1930’s NATO physicians, Dr Heitan and Dr La Garde, introduced Dried Blood Analysis to Dr Bowlen (head of surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston in the 1930’s), and later Robert Bradford (of American Biologics Hospital in Tijuana, Mexico).

For this reason Dried Blood Analysis is also referred to as the HLB test (Heitan, La Garde, Bradford).

In essence the Dried Blood Analysis test is an evaluation of a patient’s coagulation morphology. There is a very distinct difference between the 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. 

In the presence of degeneration, toxins and other imbalances, the dried blood sample shows white areas, called polymerized protein puddles (PPPs) and other abnormalities that can be indicative of certain systemic conditions.

As the blood dries on the slide, 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 PPPs that don’t spin out very far, whereas heavier PPPs are created by lymph and skin conditions that spin out around the outside of the layer. The size and shape of the PPPs is also suggestive of the nature of the condition, which we cover in the live and dry blood analysis training  course https://livebloodonline.com/the-training-course/

The PPPs observed in the dried blood test are believed by some researchers to be caused by the presence of Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC) and the presence of water-soluble fragments of the extracellular matrix.

This theory is supported by some emerging research and we look at the mechanisms of DIC and degradation of the extracellular matrix in the live and dry blood analysis training course.

A healthy dry blood sample shows a healthy, even red colour, no white open areas and a distinct, interconnected fibrin network.

Live Blood Analysis Microscope for Sale

We have a dark field microscope for sale that  has been put together especially for live blood analysis practitioners who need a fully-capable brightfield & darkfield blood analysis system at the best possible price.

This entry-level microscope system has been designed to give practitioners all the essential features to allow live blood analysis practitioners to view live and dry blood samples properly, without the analysis being compromised by a poor quality system.


This live blood analysis microscope is a very well-built system that is affordable, without compromising on darkfield and brightfield quality.

The system can be upgraded with the optional extras at a later stage.

Price: $3,775 (USD)

Free international shipping included (for a limited time only).

The main differences between this unit and our top-of-the range live blood analysis microscope system ($5661.00) is the number of objectives, the camera and the light source:


Entry Level System HD-LED System
Objectives: 4X



(with space to add another 2 objectives)





100X (Oil)

Camera: USB2.0 camera (1280 x 1024 resolution) USB3.0 HD camera (2048 x 1534 resolution)
Light Source: 7W LED (equivalent to 75W halogen) 9W LED (equivalent to 100W halogen)


The 20X objective is used to assess the white blood cell count, however the 40X objective can also be used for this.

The 100X objective is used at the end of the dark field analysis when very high magnification is needed to look at an individual cell or microbe. This is not essential as in the majority of cases the most important anomalies are observed with the 40X objective. These objectives can always be added at a later stage, since there is space available for them.

Week 8 on the Live Blood Analysis Training Course

We are on week 8 of the live blood analysis training course and now starting to study dried blood cell analysis which is also referred to as the Oxidative Stress Test (OST).

In dry blood test analysis (or dried blood analysis), we leave 8 layers (spots) of blood to dry naturally on a slide, we then observe the anomalies seen.

We are looking at anomalies that could be signs of allergies, adrenal stress, psychological stress and intestinal irritation as well as reproductive organ, bowel, vital organ, lymphatic and thyroid imbalances.

Heavy metal toxicity anomaly as seen above.


Heavy metal toxicity appears as black points at the edge of the layer, or as a dark shore or waves.

Cause & Interventions:

Strongly indicative of heavy metal toxicity, this can be from the environment (pollution, contaminated food, water or air, smoking and passive smoking) and also amalgams.

Points at the edge of the layer usually indicate the presence of lead and/or amalgams.

Dark waves deeper into the layer indicate that metals are being held in the fatty tissues, brain and nervous system, which is associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

Week 6 on the live blood analysis online training course – pleomorphic growth forms

We are now on week 6 of the live blood analysis online training course and studying pleomorphic growth forms in the blood.

Various pleomorphic growth forms can be observed in darkfield microscopy such as rod-form bacteria above.


In Live Blood Analysis we view the clients live blood magnified on to a screen.
We look at the Red Blood Cells (RBCs), the white blood cells (WBC’s), the platelets and the plasma.
We compare the clients 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.

ROD-FORM BACTERIA IN THE BLOOD” is taken from the 500+ page Live Blood Analysis Online Training Manual 2015″

Rod-form bacteria are rod-shaped microorganisms that move around actively in the plasma. The presence of rod-form bacteria is related to an under active immune system and a terrain that supports the development of pathogenic bacteria. The presence of many rod-forms is usually associated with some mucus-producing infection. Measures are used to correct the imbalance of the terrain. These include alkalizing formulae such as Base powder, wheatgrass and other green food extracts, trace minerals, as well as immune-building supplements and lifestyle changes.

Rod-shaped bodies that move around actively in the plasma.

An optimally functioning immune system will prevent rod-forms from being present in a drop of peripheral blood.

Medical Perspective:
As far as conventional medicine is concerned, bacteria will only be seen in the blood in cases of septicemia. However, various types of bacteria are clearly visible in live blood of patients who are not suffering from septicemia. Very interesting research conducted in Canada and published in the Journal of Clinical Microbiology proved that bacteria are in fact present in the blood (J Clin Microbiol. 2002 December; 40(12): 4771–4775).

Week 5 on the Live Blood Online Training Course- white blood cell viability

We are on week 5 of the Live Blood Online Training Course and looking at white blood cell (neutrophil) anomalies.

Neutrophil viability is one of the most important assessments used to determine the state of the immune system.

The main criteria used for determining the viability of a neutrophil include size, condition and activity.

A neutrophil should be approximately twice as big as a red blood cell (RBC), approximately 14 microns in diameter. The main determinants in assessing the condition of a neutrophil are the condition of the cell’s border and segmentation. The border should be fairly smooth and regular and the neutrophil should not be hypersegmented nor macrocytic.

The most important factor to observe when assessing neutrophil viability is activity.

Here we look at the granules within the cell’s cytoplasm. Ideally, there should be many of them actively streaming within the cell.

The cell itself should also be stretching out its membrane in irregular shapes to move around actively in the plasma. Typically, neutrophil viability should be at least 75{0ad5881c2192913025db5bf2180b2e0b17ede26560c7c351a451156c0b06bc98}.

Non-viable neutrophils are often round, symmetrical and immobile.   


Poor neutrophil viability may be caused by many factors – please join the Live Blood Online Training Course to find out more.

pH of urine and blood

pH of urine and blood

The pH of urine and blood is extremely important and is now, more and more, being considered an important indicator of one’s health.

In The pH Miracle: Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health by Robert O. Young, Ph.D. & Shelly Redford Young, we find this statement: “the single measurement most important to your health is the pH of your blood and tissues – how acidic or alkaline it is.” Tracking your pH of your urine is easy to do, and takes very little time.

You will need a box of pH test strips and a journal to track your progress.

Most health practitioners recommend doing a daily pH test for 30 days to give a general idea of your alkaline/acid measurements.

Keeping track of your ‘numbers’ will measure your levels and monitor your progress over time to determine if you need to make changes or not and to see if what you are doing is working.

The pH of blood must be tightly regulated in a very narrow range between 7.35 and 7.45. Below or above this range means symptoms and disease. Death is associated with blood pH imbalances of 7.80 and above or 7.0 and below.

Testing your urine pH can give you an early indication and warning that your body is over acidic.

What the pH of urine and blood can tell you

The pH of urine indicates how the body is working to maintain the proper pH of the blood. The pH of urine indicates the efforts of the body via the kidneys, adrenals, lungs and gonads to regulate pH through the buffering system.

This can provide a fairly accurate picture of body chemistry, because the kidneys filter out the buffer salts of pH regulation and provide values based on what the body is eliminating.

Urine pH can vary from around 4.5 to 9.0 for its extremes, but the ideal range is 5.8 to 7.2.

First pH of urine Test in the morning:

Test your first urine of the morning before eating or drinking, this is the urine that has been stored in your bladder during the night and will usually be more acidic.

Briefly place the pH strip in the urine mid-stream and wait 15 seconds to read your pH.

The pH number of the morning reading should be 6.8 – 7.2

If your pH of urine is below 6.8, you could be overly acidic and low in alkaline buffers.

To increase your alkalinity you may want to source a more alkaline water, and introduce organic greens high in the minerals calcium, magnesium and potassium into your diet.

If your pH of urine are 7.2 or higher, you have a healthy reading and you appear to have the alkaline buffers needed to neutralize acidity in your diet and lifestyle.

Second Morning pH of urine Test:

Take this second urine pH test after drinking water or a green drink but before eating any food.

Repeat Daily for Thirty Days (and more).

Take the first and second urine of the day and record the average of them both. This is the number you will use when you track your trend over 30 days.

This will enable you to see the trend over time and help you to measure how alkaline you are.

These tests are able to indicate how effective our digestive system was able to deal with what we drank and ate the previous night/day.

When we are eating an acidic diet, these numbers will tend to be low.

When we start alkalizing the numbers will start to increase and over time, will begin to sustain themselves.

Your second morning urine should always be better than your first morning urine, ideally between 7.2 – 7.4.

Live blood analysis microscope

Live blood analysis microscope

Not all microscopes are created equally. For optimal performance your live blood analysis microscope specifications need to be suited to its particular application.

Naturopathic microscopy involves the analysis of live and dry blood samples in brightfield and darkfield, each with its own set of unique microscope requirements.

Although most microscopes essentially work on similar principles, there is a great degree of variation in optical configurations, illumination and ultimately image quality. Live blood analysis microscopy in darkfield and brightfield is a highly specialised technique, requiring a very particular set of specifications.

A suitable optical and illumination assembly must be in place to ensure the best results in viewing live blood in darkfield and brightfield.

Any compromise in the setup of the system will result in an inferior image and the user not being able to detect all the important anomalies.

Many suppliers on the internet claim to supply darkfield and brightfield live blood analysis microscopes suitable for live blood analysis but the supplier’s knowledge is limited. Only a specialist will know the requirements for a live blood analysis microscope.

So it is very important to only buy a live blood analysis microscope form a specialist supplier who understands the requirements and specifications for a live blood analysis microscope that will ensure the best results in viewing live blood in darkfield and brightfield.

Many practitioners make the mistake of buying a microscope from a company that claims their microscopes are suitable for live blood analysis microscopy and then find out that this is not the case, they are not able to see many of the anomalies and therefore not able to perform live blood analysis to its full potential.

It is not that the company is deliberately cheating the practitioner, it is more a lack of specialist knowledge.

If your microscope has not been supplied by us, it’s likely that you won’t be able to detect everything that can be seen in the blood.

Don’t let this happen to you if you are looking for a microscope!

At Live Blood Online we know exactly what specifications are needed in a live blood analysis microscope for it to perform optimally as a live blood analysis microscope system.

Don’t buy a microscope until you have seen this video.

We supply the best microscopes for live blood analysis worldwide AND if you buy your microscopes from us you get the interactive 12 week training course for half price! (We are also currently offering free shipping on microscopes)
