Live blood analysis is a marvelous motivational and educational tool, used in some of the best and forward-thinking health institutes around the world for example: The Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida USA and Dr. Gabriel Cousens' Tree of Life Institute in Patagonia. Live and dry blood analysis is a procedure whereby a miniscule amount of blood is taken from the end of a finger. The pinprick is similar to that used for measuring glucose levels.
Once taken, the blood is mounted onto a slide and viewed by the microscopist using a dark field microscope. The images, magnified 1000 times can also be viewed by the client via the camera and laptop computer. On screen the client will be able to see individual red and white blood cells as well as bacterial and fungal forms in the plasma fluid which makes up the rest of the blood. Conventional blood tests are quantitative, whereas live and dry blood analysis is qualitative. It reveals the overall state of a persons health.
Our blood must reach every cell in our body to provide it with nourishment and oxygen and to remove carbon dioxide and waste matter. It therefore follows that the state of our blood within us can give a clear indication of the condition of our inner terrain. A nutritional microscopist is able to identify irregularities in red and white blood cells and also to interpret what lies in the surrounding plasma.
Many therapeutic benefits are attributed to seaweed bathing. Scientific studies have confirmed that seaweed bathing helps lower body stress and relieve skin conditions (psoriasis, eczema, acne etc). It has also been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of muscle aches and joint stiffness (rheumatism and arthritis), and excellent for some circulatory problems.
Seaweed treatments are associated with body toning, slimming and the release of toxins. Indeed, the therapeutic merit of seaweed can be aptly described as one of nature's timeless treasures, fostering beauty, balance and vitality.
