A live blood analysis entails pricking the finger and placing a drop of blood on a slide to look at under a darkfield microscope.
The shape and behaviour of the red blood cells can show issues such as poor protein digestion, low B12 or vitamin C, inflammation, poor fat metabolism and much more.
The white blood cells can also give a very good indication of when there are issues such as inflammation, low vitamin C, low trace minerals, too many or too few for example.
The dry blood analysis is known as the oxidative stress test and here we can see further signs such as magnesium or calcium deficiency; acidity, inflammation, parasites, congestion, hormone imbalance, allergies and more.
After following up on recommendations and diet choices, a follow up appointment can show the improvements in the blood picture.
