Live blood cell analysis is carried out by placing a drop of blood from the person’s fingertip on a microscope slide. The slide is then viewed at high magnification with a dark-field microscope that forwards the image to a television monitor. Both the practitioner and client can then see the terrain of blood. The client may take photographs of the television picture or may videotape the procedure for himself. The procedure is also called live cell analysis, dark-field video analysis, nutritional blood analysis, vital hematology, biocytonics, and several other names.
Dark-field microscopy is a valid scientific tool in which special lighting is used to examine specimens of cells and tissues. The objects being viewed stand out against a dark background—the opposite of what occurs during regular microscopy. This allows the observer to see things that might not be visible with standard lighting. Connecting a television monitor to a microscope for observation purposes makes it easy to see and talk about what is going on with the red and white blood cells, and also see what else is in the blood.
This is not a diagnosis. This is a look at what is in the blood. It takes about an hour.
