Dark Field - Live Blood Analysis



An image of normal/healthy blood

Nutritional Microscopy is a comparatively new technique in the UK. It involves taking a single living drop of blood from the finger-tip which is then placed under a powerful microscope.  The image is then displayed on a screen for both the practitioner and patient to view.  Blood transports oxygen, nutrients and other life-giving agents throughout the body to maintain health. It is also the medium for detoxification, delivering cellular waste to the liver and kidneys for elimination from the body.  Blood can therefore serve as a predictor of health and provide an indication of illness well before symptoms appear.


This method of analysis is different from the usual laboratory tests that quantify the levels of certain components in a sample of blood. Live blood screening gives an indication as to the QUALITY of an individual’s blood – an important foundation of preventative health care showing the effects that diet, lifestyle and stress can have on our well-being

Studying the shape and functioning of blood cells and plasma with a microscope can show signs of…

  • Poor digestion
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Bowel and Liver toxicity
  • Dehydration
  • Stress
  • Increased cholesterol & crystal formations
  • Poor circulation


Protein linkage may signify digestion/hydration/pH issues

The Benefits
Live blood screening is both educational and motivational. Clients are able to see a live picture of their own blood and their treatment progress can be visually monitored over a period of time. With changes to diet and lifestyle, improvements in the condition of the blood can sometimes be seen within a short space of time and usually within weeks. This creates a powerful incentive for patients to be more proactive in improving their health, taking responsibility for their own progress by continuing with the recommended lifestyle changes.
