We are on week 2 now and learning about the components of the blood including white blood cells (WBC’s)..
Above is a video of a white blood cell speeded up, you can see it is chasing a bacterial form and doesn’t stop until it gets it by engulfing it.
The WBC in the video is a Neutrophil, these cells are capable of phagocytizing (ingesting) foreign cells, toxins, bacteria and viruses. Once ingested, these organisms are destroyed by release of reactive materials such as acids and enzymes.
The numbers of white blood cells are increased or decreased in various conditions.
When infection is present the WBC’s increase in number, they also become more mobile, they move back and forth between the blood, lymph and tissues.
There are several different type of WBC each with its own unique function.
Neutrophils (above in video) are capable of ingesting toxins, foreign cells, bacteria and viruses. Eosinophils deal with parasitic infections.
Basophils are chiefly responsible for allergic and antigen response.
Lymphocytes are responsible for immunity
Monocytes defend the body against viruses and bacteria.
We provide recognition charts to be able to identify the different WBC’s easily.
The presence of different WBC’s can indicate infections, inflammation and allergic reactions.
Too many or too few WBC’s is very important in the analysis of live blood as is the state of the WBC. We are looking for healthy, active, moving WBC’s for a strong immune system. If this is not the case we supply the information on protocols, lifestyle changes, herbs or supplements needed to boost the immune system and expect to see improvement of the WBC on subsequent analysis.
