Discovering Wellness offers live and dry blood analysis kits to those who don't live close enough to visit the office in person. Live and dry blood cell analysis is carried out by placing a drop of blood from the patient’s fingertip on a microscope slide under a glass cover slip. The slide is then viewed at high magnification with a light-field, dark-field microscope with phase contrast that forwards the image to a television monitor. Both practitioner and patient can then see the blood cells, which appear as dark bodies outlined in white. The practitioner may videotape the procedure for himself and/or the patient. The results are then used as a basis for recommending supplementation such as, vitamins, minerals, detoxing protocols, herbs, homeopathic remedies and other natural supplements, as well as diet and lifestyle changes. Blood Analysis is a simple procedure for obtaining an accurate assessment of your blood. With only a sample, taken virtually without pain from your finger, the test is able to provide a composite of over 25 aspects from your live and dry layer blood. Light and dark-field microscopy now allows us to observe multiple vitamin and mineral deficiencies, toxicity, allergic reaction, excess fat circulation, liver weakness, arteriosclerosis, heavy metals, hormonal and thyroid imbalances, anemia, parasitic infestation, bacterial, viral and fungal activity, organ stress, inflammation, poor digestion, leaky gut, dirty colon, blood and lymphatic congestion and stagnation, mal-absorption, malnutrition, aggregation and clotting and overall stress in the system.
