Live Blood Analysis

Live Blood Analysis is done during the first consultation and in subsequent follow-ups. This helps me to track progress and changes as you go through your prescribed program. A Dry Blood Analysis examination is done in the same consultation.

What is Live blood analysis?

Our blood is the vital fluid of life and its condition is of paramount importance to the state of our health. Blood reflects what is going on in the body, for example it reflects your nutritional status and the functionality of your digestive system, the condition of your organs and the health of the fluid that all your cells are bathed in, known as the inner terrain. Medical doctors use blood tests to find markers in your blood that reflect the condition of your system in relation to disease, while live blood analysis gives us information that guides us in ways to keep you healthy and prevent disease from developing. 

Here are some of the characteristics of blood:

  • It consists of the red and white blood cells which are suspended in plasma.
  • Plasma is a straw-coloured liquid that surrounds every cell in our body and contains life-giving nutrients, which have been gathered from your digestive tract. The nutrients are transported into every cell while the plasma also picks up waste products for transport out of the body.
  • Red blood cells are responsible for transporting and delivering oxygen to every cell, and for picking up carbon dioxide for delivery to the lungs for elimination.
  • The immune system’s white blood cells are responsible for keeping us free of the pathogens that make us ill. There are five different types of white blood cell and each one defends us from particular pathogens.

how is Live Blood Analysis done?

Live Blood Analysis gives you and me a view of your living blood on the slide, so we are able to see your red and white blood cells moving around as they go about their business and we can see what’s happening in the plasma and what it contains. I am able to evaluate the blood sample, examining it in conjunction with the information I have already gathered from you and the questionnaire you filled in. Because blood does all the jobs explained above and flows throughout the body it contains information about the way your whole body is functioning. I will discuss all the important points with you as we go along and enable you to understand the condition of your health.

An Educational Tool

Live Blood Analysis is a great educational tool – you will be fascinated and motivated to improve your blood picture and therefore your health. But please be aware that it is not intended as a diagnostic tool for named diseases, such as cancer or diabetes etc. It is a tool that can evaluate how healthy you are in order to provide good energy, lessen any complaints you may have, and prevent problems in the future as much as possible. Together we discuss how you can improve your blood picture through changes in your diet and lifestyle. I provide a programme so that you can take control of achieving the best of health. To this end you will receive written recommendations that I’ll send you following the consultation. 

I am also able to save pictures and video clips to use later on for comparison. Here is an example of two active white blood cells in the blood as seen through the microscope.

Unfortunately, due to the Advertising Standards Agency regulations I am not allowed to further explain what this technique can tell us and why it is so useful. There are many articles on the internet carrying erroneous assumptions about live blood analysis and if you find this confusing I’m more than happy to have a chat with you, so do make use of the information on the Contact page or log in to the blog pages.

How is this different to a medical blood test?

Medical blood tests are an essential diagnostic technique ordered by doctors and carried out in laboratories. Various techniques are used such as staining of samples, counting the cells and other constituents by machine, or using a growing medium to check for pathogens. These tests can not be replaced by live blood analysis as they are intended to discover known serious or minor conditions that may need drug treatment. Live blood analysis provides a view of your health with the intention of showing you how to improve it, but in some cases clients might be advised by the practitioner to seek further blood tests through a medical doctor.



If you are interested in the abilities of the microscope, here they are:

  • The microscope I use has darkfield ability, which means the sample stays ‘alive’ on the slide, showing us its functionality. 
  • This darkfield microscope magnifies the live blood sample 1,000 times.
  • A brilliantly clear picture is illuminated through the use of a darkfield condenser and oil iris objective – the sample is stained with light.
  • Because no stains or dyes are used the sample can stay alive for many hours.

The main question to be answered is this: Is your internal terrain a clean, friendly environment for our helper organisms to thrive and the blood to flow, or is it the opposite?

Live Blood Analysis was pioneered by a German microbiologist and researcher, Prof. Gunther Enderlein (1878 – 1964). His work was widely understood and adopted in Germany by doctors and naturopaths. The late Michael Coyle of Nulife Sciences in California was a nutritionist and researcher and brought live blood analysis to the English speaking world. He studied the German traditions in this technique and made it accessible in the modern world. Michael Coyle died in 2003.
