"To keep the body in good health is a duty, otherwise
we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear."
~ Buddha ~
The body has an acid-alkaline ratio - pH balance – which is a balance between positively charges ions (acid-forming) and negatively charged ions (alkaline-forming.) The body continually strives to balance pH. When this balance is compromised many problems can occur as an acidic PH balance makes the body weak and susceptible to sickness.
In today’s society acidosis, or over acidity, is very common.It can become a dangerous condition that weakens all body systems.The body can suffer severe and prolonged damage due to high acidity — a condition that may go undetected for years, and gives rise to an internal environment conducive to disease.
The reason acidosis is more common in our society is mostly due to lifestyle and the typical Western diet, which is far too high in acid-producing animal products like meat, eggs and dairy, and far too low in alkaline-producing foods like fresh vegetables. Additionally, we eat acid-producing processed foods like white flour and sugar and drink acid-producing beverages like coffee and soft drinks. We use too many drugs, which are acid-forming; and we use artificial chemical sweetners like NutraSweet or Equal, which contain aspartame, which is extremely acid-forming.
When excess acids must be neutralised our alkaline reserves are depleted, leaving the body in a weakened condition. It forces the body to borrow minerals - including calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium - from vital organs and bones to buffer (neutralise) the acid and safely remove it from the body.
The body is able to assimilate minerals and nutrients properly only when its pH is balanced. It is therefore possible for someone to be taking healthy nutrients and yet be unable to absorb or use them. A healthy body maintains adequate alkaline reserves to meet emergency demands.
Metabolism, which is the process of acquiring nutrients from the blood and excreting waste out of the body, is extremely important to human cells. Acidification of the blood, caused by the loss of electrons, can be prevented by consuming more alkaline foods and by negative electric ions, which contain an abundant amount of electrons. The more negatively charged ions there are, the more efficient the cell's metabolism process and the better the flow of oxygen throughout the body. The more Positively Charged ions there are, the slower and less efficient the cell's metabolism. This causes the body's cells to become weak and the body will tend to get sick more easily and age faster.
The more we are out of resonance with nature, the more we suffer disease and pain.
The function of electrons inside and outside the cells has significant influence on the human body. Negatively charged ions are essential to sustaining and improving our health. They strengthen the body's immunity and resistance to illnesses. A pH balanced environment allows our body to function as it should and is necessary for the body to resist disease.
One of the best things we can do to correct an overly-acid body is to clean up our diet and lifestyle.
Live & Dry Blood Analysis
How we live our lives and what we put into our bodies is reflected in our blood picture.
Blood is the main transport system of the body. It not only carries oxygen, nutrients and other life-giving agents necessary to maintain good health to all our tissues and organs, it is also the medium for detoxification by delivering cellular waste to the liver, bowels and kidneys for elimination from the body.
Stress and disease appear in the blood years before it manifests in the body. The condition and quality of our blood has a direct impact on our present and future health and is vital to a healthy disease free existence. Imbalances occur caused by over acidity from poor diet, or lifestyle choices. Fundamentally diet and lifestyle have a direct and profound affect on our health.
Our blood pH level is 7.325. The body knows that there is a priority to keep its pH steady and will do anything it needs to do to maintain it. When the body has to work harder to correct the pH level it not only draws energy from us, when we are deficient in nutrients it will draw the required nutrients from other parts of the body including tissue, muscle, bone etc. Eg: If we are deficient in calcium, the body will draw calcium from our bones, teeth, hair and nails. Over time depletion can set in causing imbalances in the 'donating' tissues and organs.
Imbalances in the body can be identified by viewing the blood at cellular level.
By analysing the size and shape of red blood cells, the quantity and quality of the different types of white blood cells, the condition of the plasma and how blood dries, imbalances can be identified.
Healthy live blood cells [Image 1] are round and separated. This allows the blood to flow freely through blood vessels and capillaries, delivering oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
When we are too acidic - caused by stress or dehydration amongst other things, or if there is a large amount of undigested protein and fat in the blood the red blood cells become stacked like coins [Image 2] or aggregated [Image 3]. This reduces their ability to carry oxygen and vital nutrients throughout the body. It also increases blood viscosity (thickness) which increases stress on the circulatory system.

By studying how the blood dries, signs of nutritional deficiencies, reduced immunity, organ stress, heavy metal toxicity and free radical damage can be evaluated.
Before the analysis you will be sent a pre-consultation questionnaire covering your health history, diet, lifestyle, your work and living environment, use of chemicals (pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, hair and body products, household cleaning products etc) and your exposure to e-smog. You will also be advised not to eat or drink anything except water for at least 4 hours before your consultation.
Live Blood Analysis
Live Blood analysis enables you to see your blood exactly as it behaves in your body. Giving you a clear picture of your present health at cellular level.
The clinical application of Live Blood Analysis involves taking some small drops of blood about the size of a pinhead from your fingertip. They are then placed between two glass slides and viewed under a 'darkfield' microscope magnified 20,000 times.
The results are captured and immediately displayed to you on a screen while the blood is still interacting and moving around.
Evaluating the internal environment and identifying areas of imbalance provides an insightful view of your biological terrain.
Live Blood Analysis identifies:
• The conditions of the red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and plasma and what it could mean for your health.
• Whether you are nutritionally deficient and whether there are any indications of inefficient absorption and assimilation.
• Features associated with cholesterol, blood sugar imbalances, triglycerides (fats) & uric acid.
• Free Radical activity and cellular oxidation.
• The presence of possible microbial activity such as bacteria, yeast, parasites and fungi.
• Levels of toxicity and internal pollution.
• Features and early warning signs associated with degenerative conditions.
Dry Blood Analysis
Dry Blood Analysis gives a more historic view of conditions that have been developing over some time. With Dry Blood Analysis we can look deeper into the organs and further back in time.
Immediately after taking the sample for the live analysis, a slightly larger sample is taken from the same prick point and is left to clot for 30 seconds then eight dabs from the same sample are taken onto a glass slide and left to dry.
Following the Live Blood Analysis, the dry samples are displayed to you on screen and are magnified the same as the live sample. However as it is a dry sample, it is no longer interacting or moving around.
Each sample will dry differently. The larger four samples are more indicative of sallow, acute or more temporary conditions. The smaller four samples are more indicative of deeper seated, long term or chronic conditions.
Dry Blood Analysis identifies:
• Free radical damage
• Signs of organ weakness
• Toxicity of the bowel
• Levels of toxicity of the digestive tract
• Heavy metal toxicity
• Levels/patterns of oxidative stress
• Other toxic conditions in the body
Live and Dry Blood Analysis is not a diagnostic blood test. It simply enables you to see your blood exactly as it behaves in your body and the indications it has on your current state of health; giving you clear picture of your health at cellular level and therefore an informed understanding of the impact your diet, lifestyle and other factors has on your body.
By identifying early warning signs and making necessary changes, health imbalances may be averted.
Based upon the observations, specific protocols can be recommend. This may include simple lifestyle and dietary changes, cleansing and detoxification protocols and supplementary support.
The emphasis is solely on nutritional balance.
