Live Blood Video Microscopy

Video Microscopy of Live & Dried Layered Blood Analysis is a unique technique used to formulate an appropriate course of natural health-building and lifestyle principles to optimize health, prevent disease, and to monitor individual effectiveness.

doctor bannockLive Blood Analysis and Dried Layered Blood Analysis are the two applications that are discussed in the following information. The two applications are modeled through three viewing techniques: Phase Contrast & Dark Field (Live Blood), and Bright Field (Dried Layered Blood), also known as the Oxidative Stress Test or Mycotoxic / Oxidative Stress Test (M.O.S.T).

The test is different from conventional blood tests ordered by the physicians because it is a live sample, where the qualified Analyst is looking for microbial activity, condition of cells, and anomalies that are not typically ordered in blood testing using the traditional method. The dried sample suggests the areas of the body that may be congested, or holding toxins, impairing proper functionality.

Phase Contrast Microscopy

Doctor BannockAround 1930 Professor Fritz Zernike, a Dutch professor in Physics, discovered phase and amplitude differences between ‘zeroth order’ and ‘diffracted’ light that can be altered to produce favorable conditions for interference and contrast enhancement through microscopy. He succeeded in devising a method, now known as phase contrast microscopy, for making unstained, phase objects yield contrast images as if they were amplitude objects.

Phase contrast microscopy was very successful and ultimately gained widespread application, resulting in Zernike’s award of the prestigious Nobel Prize in physics in 1953. Phase contrast, by “converting” phase specimens such as living material into amplitude specimens, allowed the observing scientists to see details in unstained and/or living objects with a clarity and resolution never before achieved.

In Live Blood Video Microscopy this unique technique of viewing living blood is not a diagnostic procedure for any specific disease. It is more a screening test to reflect how oneâs dietary and lifestyle habits may be influencing health, and where appropriate adjustments are necessary within these areas in order to optimize health and prevent the onset of disease. Health problems and degenerative conditions can be prevented with early nutritional intervention, and Phase Contrast Microscopy can detect many nutritional imbalances and deficiencies before chemical blood tests can show abnormalities.

This unique Phase contrast technique of viewing living blood is different from regular blood analysis because it uses whole, unaltered blood as opposed to just parts of the blood. It is unstained and uses higher magnification. The blood which is viewed directly by the Analyst and the client/volunteer is alive, and not dead as in conventional chemical microscopic blood evaluation.

Techniques of Live Blood Analysis (Phase Contrast & Dark Field Microscopy) can also view living microbial activity and their potential degenerative effects within the bloodstream. The presence of bacteria, fungi or parasitic forms observed in a live blood screening test is not diagnostic of an infection with any of these organisms. The blood and immune system is exposed to these organisms on a daily basis from the intake of food, municipal tap water, and the polluted environment of modern life. These organisms, when they enter the blood stream are generally inactivated by the immune systemâs army of white blood cells and antibodies.

The mere presence of these Îbugsâ in the blood is not diagnostic of an infection. For a blood infection to be present, a great deal more than just microbial activity has to be observed. Microbial activity within the bloodstream does however give indications of an acidic compromised biological terrain suited for the growth and development of such microbial activity and their excreted exotoxins, and therefore unsuited for efficient cellular function which requires a balanced alkaline biochemistry.

Skeptics of Phase Contrast and Dark Field Microscopy believe that the blood of most breathing, walking and functioning humans is completely sterile and that viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites could not possibly exist in the bloodstream. They argue that if parasites, candida yeast, fungi or bacteria were really present in the bloodstream that the patient should be lying in a hospital bed, perhaps dying of septic shock. This dogma has been disproved by a great deal of research done by many scientists around the world, especially in Germany, Eastern Europe, New Zealand and countries where natural or drugless forms of medicine are more accepted.

The list of research papers describing the presence of viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic toxins in the blood of non-septicemic individuals is voluminous. A growing number of pathologists (e.g. Dr. A. Ali) and clinicians are recognizing the importance of using this kind of information in daily practice of preventive health care.
