So what is this blood analysis anyway?
Blood analysis is a screening tool for blood anomalies that may be effecting your health.
So what do we screen?
Would you believe us if we told you that we screen the live blood for at least 32 different anomalies and the dried sample for another 36 variations to photo comparative analysis?
The high powered, fiber-optic microscope offers phase contrast capabilities as well as dark field. Phase contrast is useful in differentiating fungal and bacterial forms as well as verifying crystalline structures inwhich accurate identification is limited with only dark field. Phase contrast enables the analyst to study living cells and reveals details that may otherwise be missed.
We see this particular blood screening procedure as a tool to work in conjunction with open-minded physicians, not against them, in optimizing a person’s health.

In 1932, Edgar Cayce predicted that some day all diseases would be identifiable through a single drop of blood. The Bradford Research Centre spent years, and many dollars testing his theory, before coming out with the testing, and upgraded testing we currently use today.
The Bradford Research Institute in Chula Vista, California and American Biologics advocates the procedure, technique and manual we use. The testing is used in various clinics in the United States and in conjunction with some Western Medicine Physicians. It is called the Bradford Peripheral Blood Assessment (BPBA) and is part of general medical microscopy, which is in common use and acceptance in CLIA laboratories since April of 1996.
There are two components to the testing: High Resolution Blood Morphology (HRBM) for the live blood sample, and the Heitan-Legarde Bradford (HLB) test for the dried sample. The live blood sample is a screening of the activity and health of an individual’s blood cells, to see if they have good oxygen, nutrient carrying capacity, or whether the cells are healthy enough to carry out the function they are required to. We analyze the health and activity level of red blood cells, any anomalies, white blood cells, yeast, bacteria, platelets, parasites, fungal activity etc. This procedure can show the qualified analyst, an indicator of what is going on in the person’s body.
The test is different from the blood tests ordered by the physicians because it is a live sample, where we are looking for parasitic activity, yeast growth, bacterial growth, clumping of cells, etc.; anomalies that are not typically ordered in blood testing using the traditional method. By doing the testing live, and sealing off the oxygen, we are able to see clumping of red blood cells, parasites, etc. The dried sample suggests the parts of the body that may be congested, or holding toxins, impairing proper functionality. This is seen through the cellular oxidization and degeneration, which is characterized through the fall out of fibrin toxic masses, gathered from one droplet of blood and collected in layers on the slide.
Training and Knowledge…
Analysts who practice this type of testing have to pass tests in Anatomy, inclusive of the Body Systems location and functionality, Nutrition, Herbology, and Morphology to become certified.
While the training may have been a shorter time frame than the medical profession, we have the manual resources to refer to and use. Analysts that are genuinely interested in the health of people continue to study and research to update themselves on the newest research and test results of nutrition and how it affects disease, newest test results on the use of alternative therapies, including body cleansing, chelation therapy, etc. This specific testing is definitely worthwhile as it takes at least an hour to review the blood properly, to educate and explain what is seen, why it is there, what the functionality of it is, and how nutrition/supplementation can help the person’s health. When done properly the test results show 92% accuracy level.
Actually, we are people like you who enjoy meeting other people, who care about others, and are sharing information/education with others. We are not Doctors and we will not diagnose and prescribe chemical drugs to treat your symptoms for something it is. At no time, are we suggesting that we can cure a disease.
What we are suggesting is that by analyzing your blood, we will educate you on what we see and suggest a personalized program. This program could consist of body cleansing to rid your body of toxins, nutrition adjustments, vitamins, mineral and herbal supplements, so that you can tolerate your ailments easier, and or become healthier the natural way. These are required in today’s environment because of pollution, depletion of soil minerals, and processing methods of food, and additives to almost everything. Some of the blood analysts do sell the suggested herbs, vitamins, and minerals because we like to suggest product that we are comfortable in knowing works. Because of the 10% law in Canada, we usually suggest therapeutic herbs, vitamins, and minerals specific to the individual’s needs. Therapeutic herbs, vitamins, and minerals are tested for their quality and quantity and processing. Not all doctors are the same, not all blood tests are the same and not all blood analysts are the same.
Our ultimate goal is to help the individual understand their health, what can improve it, so they can help themselves, and help their body fight disease. We believe that a lack of essential vitamins, minerals, and herbs plays a key role in disease, finding the weakest part of your body to coagulate.
The dried sample is actually gathered first, as we take the droplet of finger capillary blood and expose it to the air, which allows the toxins or stress to separate into different layers of the droplet, from oxidation factors, and an alternative pathway from the intrinsic/extrinsic pathways. Then we gather the specimen in layers, on the slide so that the toxins are revealed in the specific body areas, and set it aside for drying.
The peripheral blood analysis is an excellent assessment modality to determine priority of need and proper place of suggestion for the patient. This allows the analyst to assess the areas and extent of cellular oxidation and degeneration. What we take into consideration:
– Is there evidence of altered physiological processes?
– Is the process self-limiting or progressive?
– Is the condition functional or organic?
– Is there evidence of acute changes or chronic condition?
– Is the condition mild or severe in nature?
The dried sample reveals where your body is holding toxins, and what parts of your body functionality are impaired by the toxins. Although these toxins can be indicators of disease, the purpose of the testing is to find the root of the health problem or potential health problem, and educate you on how to remove the toxins, so you can help your body fight disease, or allow you to live a better life with the disease. This procedure is very accurate in testing for anomalies not recognized by the medical lab testing, and is therefore very worthwhile in discovering why your health is impaired. Each person will receive a photo of the blood sample, and a suggestion sheet of vitamins, minerals, herbs and diet changes required to regain their health.
We take a small amount of finger capillary blood, using a new lancet. We gather it on a new sterile slide and cover it with a new sterile glass cover slip to seal it from the air, dust etc. Then we place it under the microscope previously mentioned, and magnify it 40000 times. This enables us to see: red blood cells oxygen, nutrient carrying capacity, red blood cell anomalies, platelets or (thrombocytes), various types of white blood cells (leukocytes) such as Phagocytes and Lymphocytes and their families, parasites, Candida (yeast), plague,cholesterol, triglycerides, chylomicrons, mycoplasms, fungus, liver stress, digestion problems bacteria, deficiencies, etc.
The analyst will show and explain the blood on a T.V. monitor, and probably tell you what your symptoms are, based on the anomalies seen. In total there are approximately 32 anomalies reviewed. There are not two people in existence who are exactly the same and that is the beauty of this procedure.We are able to treat each person individually and work together to achieve optimal health.
