It is week 5 on the live blood analysis training course and this week we are looking at white blood cell (WBC) anomalies in live blood analysis.
There are 5 different types of WBCs in live blood analysis and we are looking at all the anomalies that may be encountered under each type of white blood cell.
White blood cell anomalies play an important role in live blood analysis, but you could say that red blood cell anomalies often determine the main focus of your assessment and treatment in a case.
White blood cell anomalies in general relate to the state of the immune system in live blood analysis, possible infections, allergies and a few other conditions, such as autoimmune diseases.
In many cases we simply take note of them, as they only confirm the rest of the results in the case. For example, if we see signs of toxicity and over-acidity in the blood, and we see signs of an underactive, stressed immune system, we won’t necessarily focus on the immune system, but rather on correcting the terrain.
This is because the immune system possibly became compromised due to the imbalance in the terrain and using immune boosting supplements will produce disappointing results.
This is because the underlying issue is an imbalance in the terrain – that is the primary disturbance so that is what should be the focus on to achieve good results.
This is why live blood analysis is so valuable – the primary disturbance in a case can be addressed, instead of just dealing with the symptoms.
So white blood cell anomalies serve to confirm the findings in the rest of the case and to add some context.
There are some situations where a specific white blood cell anomaly would affect the results to such an extent that it could change the direction to choose in terms of treatment.
For example, with a client who has sinusitis – in natural medicine we often focus on the digestive system and liver, as well as Candida, in sinusitis cases.
However, there may be no significant signs of digestive, liver and Candida problems seen in such a case, but many signs of allergies (a white blood cell anomaly) you would then need to focus on treating the allergies specifically.
Another example would be a case where many signs of toxicity (poikilocytes) are seen along with signs of an acute infection. In such a case it is most likely that the toxicity resulted from the infection and doing a detox wouldn’t be the correct approach – supporting the immune systems and clearing the infection would be much more important.
So it is extremely important to be able to connect the dots in a case and to understand how the anomalies observed relate to each other.
Otherwise there will be a lot of information but no understanding of what is going on in a case and it would be difficult to know what corrective measures to put in place.
