Nutritional Live Blood Analysis
What is it?
Nutritional Live Blood Cell Analysis (NLBCA) involves the examination of a fresh drop of living blood under a high-power video-microscope that has a closed-circuit video system which projects the microscopic image onto a computer screen for simultaneous viewing by both the technician and the client. It is technically referred to as Dark field-Microscope Wet-Mount Examination of a Peripheral Blood Smear.
Live cell analysis is an excellent means of viewing by microscope the red blood cells, various types of white blood cells, platelets, and blood plasma, just as they function in the body. .Live blood analysis is a screening test, using darkfield, 3 dimensional DIC, phase contrast, and brightfield microscopy for the purpose of observing various conditions of your blood. The test itself is quite simple. A drop of blood is taken from your finger and placed on a microscope slide for viewing. The image from the slide is transmitted to a computer monitor so you can observe along with HealthSmart Nutrition's Nutritional Health Coach, what the blood cells are revealing. The drop of blood is magnified 1,000 times and to the trained examiner many accurate observations can be made. The presence of: (yeast, fungus, parasites, bacteria) active somewhere in the body, damaged cells, cholesterol crystals, and uric acid crystals are easily identified. The size and shape of the red blood cells indicate nutritional deficiencies, digestive problems, absorption problems, and the damaging effects of free radicals. Organ malfunction is also evident in the live blood cell analysis. It allows the direct inspection and interpretation of over fifty possible features of the bloodstream, red blood cells, and white blood cells.
HealthSmart Nutrition's Nutritional Health Coach will explain the details of the abnormalities found in the blood and point out where deficiencies are present and also determine the degree of yeast, bacterial and or parasite infection, stress, and free-radical damage.

Why should someone seek out this procedure?
By examination of the sample, you will learn of many specific, individual health needs and will then be educated about appropriate dietary improvements, supplements, or special care. By following these suggestions, there should be an improvement in the cell picture that is clearly visible upon re-examination in one to two months.
Re-examinations allow updating and fine tuning of your health-care program so that there will be continuous improvement. These improvements help you to feel better, look better, and perform better.
By observing your venous blood conditions we can customize a program specifically geared for your individual needs. By evaluating shapes and other properties of individual blood cells, your health coach is often able to recommend other tests to verify some potential disorders. These disorders include conditions that cannot easily be detected by using the traditional methods of analyzing blood, but may be confirmed by traditional tests.
It should be noted that blood analysis by microscopy is NOT a diagnostic procedure and should not be used as such. This method was designed as a screening test to help your Nutritional Health Coach in selecting an appropriate program for each individual client.

Some of the findings can provide information about digestive efficiency, vitamin and mineral status, and much more. "Sticky" blood can cause fatigue and less oxygenation to the cells. Caffeine use, being around smokers, poor digestion, and even stress can be some of the contributing factors. The shapes and sizes of the red blood cells (cell morphology), also tell a lot. For example, many irregular, fragmented cells can be an indicator of degenerative diseases. The white blood cells can be visually scanned and can give a good indication on the functioning of your immune system.
This test also helps determine imbalances in calcium phosphorus levels, condition of the cell's sodium potassium pump efficiency, metal toxicity, bowel toxicity, degenerative or inflammation activity, and mineral, enzyme, vitamin and amino acid deficiencies.
An overview of the ratio of red to white cells can reveal the possible presence of infections. You will also be able to see effective or ineffective oxygenation of your tissues. Liver stress can be recognized, as well as possible non-absorption of proteins and fats. Acidic conditions, platelets clumping (blood clotting tendencies) and over fifty other problems can be viewed during the testing.
Once your test is completed, your Health Coach will review the health indicators in relation to your specific situation. Recommendations may then be made for diet, treatment supplementation, and other tests to confirm suspected problems. You may want to schedule a follow up examination to monitor any progress and to update the program you are following.
What makes Live Cell Analysis unique is that it now makes it possible to see something that cannot be seen any other way: the actual living state of conditions inside the body, including the effects on the cells and bloodstream of both nutritional deficiencies and other health risks. NLBCA is solid technology. The condition of your blood is the condition of your health. Your blood is responsible for nourishing the energetic function and repair of every cell, organ, and system in your body. Your blood is part of your all-important immune system. White blood cells are it's major workers. You can actually see if they are functioning. The bloodstream carries visible signs of how the other parts of your immune system are working, and indications of what's affecting them.
