Live and Dried Blood Demonstration
By Ruth Daber
About Microscopy: Live and Dried Blood Microscopy is a cutting edge tool. It allows you to see yourself at the cellular level. You will have an experience of diving right inside your body, simply by looking at a small sample of blood (pinprick from your finger) through a high powered microscope.
Robert O Young works from the "New Biology" which says that the cells are only as healthy as the liquids they are bathed in. The microscopist sees this by looking at the quality of the red blood cells and the clarity of the plasma. You may see imbalances (mostly a sign that the blood and tissues are over acidic due to lifestyle and dietary choices). A blood demonstration is motivational and educational. You will get a picture of how you have been living, eating and thinking over the past 120 days (this is how long it takes for all the red blood cells to recycle).
With only a pinprick of your blood from the finger, you will have the experience of jumping right inside your body and having a look around the blood stream. You will see your blood alive and unchanged through a high powered microscope. Together with the microscopist, you explore your internal environment: the quality of the red blood cells, the clarity of the plasma, how hydrated you are and many other things. You also look at the dried blood in which you can see which parts of your body are holding onto acidity and which areas are weakened. You can find out which areas you need to work on and create a structure with your committed actions that are manageable for you.
Live and Dried Blood Demonstrations (Microscopy)
- Utilizes a high powered microscope to view a drop of capillary blood from a subject's fingertip, obtained with a sterile lancet.
- To examine blood cells and plasma to gather research data: How does the blood picture relate to the level of health challenges experienced by the subject; What are the subjects nutritional needs and/or deficiencies?
- By addressing areas of imbalance suggested by the case history and the blood picture, N. Microscopy is an evaluation of the internal environment referred to as the biological terrain but is not considered diagnostic.
- No medical test by itself is usually considered diagnostic without corroborating lab tests, imaging studies, or physical examination.
Where standard laboratory blood tests are generally quantitative (how many cells are there?), N. Microscopy is qualitative (what is the condition of the cells?). Standard laboratory tests are often used as pre/post studies to N. Microscopy because there is correlative value in knowing both the quantity and quality of the client's cells.
*The Microscopist and client can see the characteristics of the client's blood live on a computer screen. This process gives current and past information, as it pertains to the biological terrain of the client (stress appears in the blood sometimes years before it manifests as symptoms). This information can assist the Microscopist and client by:
- Giving early warning of possible upcoming challenges
- Showing patterns of disorganization
- Alert to the advisability of medical referral
- Monitoring a challenge before and after regimes
- Determining the effectiveness of various regimes
OBSERVATION AND MONITORING OF METABOLIC FUNCTION or DYSFUNCTION:
The Phase Contrast (Unchanged Live Blood) and Bright Field (Dry Blood/ Oxidative Stress) Demonstrations are used to observe and monitor metabolic function or dysfunction, thereby taking the guesswork out of diet determination and the selection of appropriate supplementation.
In the New Biology these "imbalances" in body chemistry are seen as "conditions" brought on by acidity from poor diet, nutrition, or lifestyle choices.
Among the phenomenon observed are:
- Relative level of acidity in the body fluids and the effects these acids have on the body
- Relative activity of the immune system Condition of the Red Blood Cells
- General Organ "stress"
- Presence of parasites, bacteria, yeast, fungus, and mold
- Blood sugar imbalances
- Malabsorption of fats, proteins, and other nutrients
- Crystalline forms of morbid matter, acids, cholesterol, and mycotoxins
- Degenerative stress and gastrointestinal tract dysfunction

History of Live and Dried Blood Microscopy and how it works:
Viewing live blood under a microscope is probably as old as the microscope itself. But it was the work of European scientists Dr. Antoine Bechamp and Dr. Gunther Enderlein in the mid-19th and early 20th Centuries that would advance the use of the microscope, challenge the medical establishment of the day and propose new ways of interpreting what was being viewed in blood. Other microscopists included noted physiologist, Dr. Claude Bernard, who coined the term "internal milieu," Germ Theory advocate Louis Pasteur, Californian Dr. Virginia Livingston Wheeler and Canadian scientist Gaston Naessens.
In the 1920s European medical practitioners added another twist to unconventional microscopy when they began looking at dried blood samples, later called the Oxidative Stress Test. A glass microscope slide is dabbed onto a bead of blood on the finger in sequence several times, resulting in a slide with 8 individual drops of blood pressed upon the slide and allowed to air dry.
The resulting patterns seen in the dry blood under the bright field format reveal a characteristic "footprint" which can be seen in similar cases and, thus, are predictive of certain generalized pathologies. For instance, cases of advanced degenerative disease show very poor clotting, minimal fibrin formation with many white "puddles" disseminated throughout the sample. A healthy control subject's blood shows a tight, fibrin rich clotting pattern with no white puddles.
In the 1930s, the head of surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. H.L. Bowlen, MD, introduced the dry blood test to America. Dr. Bowlen learned the dry test from President Dwight D. Eisenhower's physicians, Drs. Heitlan and LaGarde. In the 1970s, one of Heitlan-LaGarde's students, Dr. Robert Bradford of the American Biologics Hospital in Mexico, began teaching other practitioners how to perform this test. So now there is over 70 years of dry blood testing data by hundreds of health care practitioners worldwide.
Nutritional Microscopy is an alternative medicine examination routinely utilized by holistic medical, osteopathic, chiropractic and naturopathic physicians, as well as other health care professionals around the world, providing insightful view of the biological terrain.
