A healthy blood stream makes for a healthy body. Our blood nourishes our cells, all tissues, organs and glands. Clearly, just having enough blood is not enough. It must be in great shape if you want to be healthy! Live Blood Cell Analysis at Island Healthworks gives us a window into the person’s nutritional needs, helping us to design a program and healthy lifestyle plan. A live blood sample gives valuable insight into the attributes of the blood terrain.

In the Live Blood Cell Analysis process, we use our state of the art microscopy equipment to conduct both a wet and dry blood cell analysis. To obtain the samples, we simply take a pinprick blood sample from your finger and place the drop of blood on a slide, and then place 8 separate drops on another slide to dry. Using a specially designed compound microscope, we magnify and project the image of the wet blood sample and the dry blood sample onto a computer screen, where we view the specific characteristics of the sample.

With the bloodstream underpinning every function of our body, a microscopy examined sample of the blood itself offers an invaluable look at our current lifestyle and nutritional needs. The health of your blood is central to the health of your cardiovascular system, but also relates directly to all other aspects of your health. When anomalies are noticed in a live blood sample, the observations give us relevant information to build a nutritional program tailored to the needs reflected in the blood terrain. The findings help to support improved health and lifestyle decision making.
