What’s the best way to get started in Live Blood Analysis?2022-03-22T16:46:52+00:00

To get the best start in LBA you need a really good training course of a high standard with information from all different perspectives to give a better insight. The theory is very important, but the practical aspects of LBA are also equally important because if you’re not able to take blood samples correctly then your results won’t be reliable. Your course needs to be comprehensive and the equipment you use (your microscope system) needs to be up to the correct specifications so you’re able to use LBA to its full potential from the beginning. I’ve often seen people who want to add LBA to their practice, but who don’t want to invest in a good enough system, so they start with a very basic system that doesn’t allow them to see everything they should be able to see with LBA and they never really fully benefit from LBA. So the theory, the practical proficiency and the correct equipment are all critically important.

How long does it take to really become proficient at live blood analysis?2022-03-22T16:48:04+00:00

We suggest at a minimum of 4 hours study a week on top of the weekly lesson. The technique of collecting the blood samples is fairly easy to master and most students are completely proficient in this within a month. Most students are also able to identify the most common anomalies correctly within 1-2 months, but it is important to have as much knowledge as possible because clients often ask questions, and some clients are sceptical, so as a practitioner you need to have as much information to draw from as possible. Most practitioners are able to start practicing after 3 months, your proficiency will constantly improve as you see more and more clients and get hands-on experience with LBA.

How much experience does a person need to start practicing LBA?2022-03-22T16:49:06+00:00

You need to have enough practical experience with the microscope to be able to use the equipment easily and proficiently. You will also need to practice on yourself and anyone willing to let you practice on them until you feel confident enough in your abilitiy to take a good sample. Then you will need to put everything you have been taught on the training course into practise. Most practitioners are able to start practicing after 3 months, your proficiency will constantly improve as you see more and more clients and get hands-on experience with LBA.

What are some of the common problems that people experience in setting up the new live blood analysis practice?2022-03-22T17:11:29+00:00

The most common problem is not having the right equipment.

Live blood analysis darkfield microscopes are very specialized so the microscope system needs to be up to the correct specifications to be able to use LBA to its full potential.

We often see practitoners who want to add LBA to their practice, but who don’t want to invest in a good enough system, so they start with a very basic system that doesn’t allow them to see everything they should be able to see with LBA, consequently they and their clients never really fully benefit from LBA.

Is Enderlein theory of pleomorphism taught in the course?2022-03-22T16:50:21+00:00

Yes, we cover the theory of pleomorphism in detail with all the phases of development of the particular growth forms identified by Dr Enderlein. Under each anomaly we also discuss the pleomorphic perspective. The training course covers all aspects of live blood analysis so consequently is not exclusively pleomorphic.

Do you teach phase contrast or darkfield?2022-03-22T16:51:16+00:00

The microscope systems we use are fitted with brightfield and darkfield, so the images you’ll see in the course materials would be either brightfield or darkfield. Phase contrast was developed as a less expensive option to darkfield, but even with the best phase contrast microscope systems you won’t be able to see everything you can with darkfield. That’s why we focus exclusively on brightfield and darkfield analysis of live blood.

What makes this course different from other courses?2022-03-22T16:52:54+00:00

This training course draws from a variety of researchers, whereas other courses only offer one researcher’s viewpoint so you are likely to encounter a lot of information that is not covered in any other single course.

This course is online, interactive, with live lessons and video recordings so attendees can study anywhere in the world.

Online training does away with expensive travel and accommodation costs to travel to an in-house training centre where practitioners find they have to learn a huge amount of information in a short amount of time, this is not practical and students find they are not able to take it all in.

No other course offers as much information and detail, plus an online training site with a huge database of images, videos and information.

Plus, back-up and support is provided after the training course ends.

If I hire a room in a clinic is the equipment easy to transport?2022-03-22T16:53:50+00:00

For air travel of the microscope you will need the original protective box packaging to send it or you may take it as hand luggage. For general transporting around we suggest a cabin bag (on wheels) fitted out with foam for protection so that you can wheel your microscope around easily.

How often do you run the courses?2022-03-22T17:05:21+00:00

We run training courses in January, April and September, the courses fill up quickly so do book your place in plenty of time.

I would like to know if your course is recognized in the USA? I am interested and I would love to enrol in your class if I can practice it here?2022-03-22T17:06:22+00:00

Live blood analysis is becoming recognized all over the world especially in USA, it is a nutritional tool used in a natural health & wellness setting, so it is not a medical tool used for medical diagnosis. You will need to adhere to your local health and safety regulations.

Would the online training be the best way to take the course or would I need hands on class?2022-03-22T17:07:37+00:00

Online training has many advantages:

This online training course consists of live interactive lessons and video recordings so attendees can study anywhere in the world in any time zone.

Online training does away with expensive travel and accommodation costs to travel to an in-house training centre where practitioners find they have to learn a huge amount of information in a short amount of time, this is not practical and students find they are not able to take all the information in.

With online training the course material is recorded so attendees can repeat the lessons.

Attendees can study or learn whenever they want at home or office at their own time and convenience.

Attendees can concentrate on all the information, no need to take notes or try to remember everything.

Attendees can refer to the course material anywhere, anytime, as long as they have an internet connection.

Could you give me a brief outline of the course and how it is presented?2022-03-22T17:09:52+00:00

The 12 weekly interactve online lessons are presented via GotoWebinar, they consist of in-depth information, videos and pictures describing, explaining and discussing the material in the manual.

Questions are posed and answered throughout the lesson and a video recording is then sent out to attendees after the live webinar for those in fifferent time zones who are unable to attend.
