Prevention IS More Effective THAN Treatment

Live Blood Analysis involves observing blood in real time under a high powered microscope. The blood is not altered or stained in anyway. This allows the practitioner to observe the health of the blood and obtain qualitative information, rather than quantitative information that is typically obtained from standard blood tests. It is possible to have very sick, poor functioning blood cells accompanied by lots of acid and yeast and still have normal blood cell counts. Live blood analysis is more interested in the quality of the blood cells rather than the number of blood cells. The compound microscope uses bright field and phase contrast to view the live and dried blood magnified 22,000 times.

In the first examination, a drop of blood from the fingertip is placed on a slide, observed under the microscope and the images displayed on a computer screen. This allows determination of the structure and strength of the red and white cells and also the health of the plasma they exist in.

Then a dried blood examination is done. This is also known as the mycotoxic oxidative stress test (MOST). Blood is allowed to dry on the slide and then examined under the microscope. Cellular breakdown, irritation, inflammation, acidosis, signs of parasites and specific organ imbalances can be detected.

Both these techniques allow for an early warning of health issues. The blood travels all over the body and changes in the blood can be seen long before any symptoms may manifest.

As with any investigation however, quality is not only dependent on how well the test is performed but also the interpretation of what is seen and the recommendations that are given based on that interpretation. Anybody can do a live blood analysis but it is the interpretation of what is seen that is critical.

I have studied live and dried blood microscopy at the pH Miracle Center in San Diego. I worked there with Dr Robert O. Young who is a microbiologist, the world leader in live blood analysis and the authority on acid/alkaline balance in health and wellness. I am the only medical doctor in Australia who has done this training.

Live blood microscopy is the ideal way of determining whether chronic fungal infections are contributing to illness. Do normal, orthodox tests pick up the fungus? No.... Why not? That's a long and complex discussion but not unrecognized. A fungal expert and emeritus Professor who is the author of the text book Stealth Pathogens asks in her book: "Are fungi in blood smears overlooked because they are confused with blood cells?" She answers with a resounding, YES!

The current edition of one of my medical journals quotes an old piece of advice from Thomas McCrae- "More is missed by not looking than by not knowing." Looking at the blood under 22,000x magnification with a compound microscope is the gold standard investigation for the determination of the presence of chronic fungal disease in the body. Chronic fungal disease is one of the root causes of almost all chronic degenerative diseases and MUST be dealt with in order to recover. Looking at the blood always unravels the mystery of chronic illness. Makes sense doesn't it? It's that easy.

You can decide to start valuing your health now or wait until you have a wake-up call from a major illness or degenerative disease. The problem is that most of these diseases have a very slow fuse and develop insidiously over a long period of time. By the time you are aware of the illness, the degenerative processes may have been progressing for years. The bodies healing system is like flying an airplane with an autopilot - it's a much better flight with the autopilot switched on making minor adjustments all the time, rather than frantically trying to turn it on as the plane free falls. Prevention is a much more effective strategy than treatment and live and dried blood provides ALL the information needed to prevent and/or reverse disease.

In ancient China, doctors were remunerated according to how few sick patients they had in their community. They were teachers of health, rather than treaters of symptoms. That's how it was then, that's the way it should be now.
