About Live Cell Microscopy
Live Cell Microscopy (LCM) provides an extremely close look at your blood. Unlike tradition blood tests, an LCM test gives you a more accurate picture of your overall health and well being.
Traditional blood tests that doctors employ are essentially an ‘autopsy’ of our blood whereas with a LCM test, the blood is still living. With living blood, we can see more than what a traditional blood test will reveal. What’s more, the results are immediate so you do not have to wait a week or two to get your results.
Are traditional blood tests still useful?
Each type of blood tests offers its own set of advantages. From a medical standpoint, a traditional blood test is essential. From a holistic standpoint, where we are trying to acquire a snapshot of your overall health, a live blood cell test is ideal because it helps you see things differently. As such, an LCM blood test is not a medical procedure, nor does it offer any sort of diagnosis or prescription.
How is the test performed?
A drop of blood is painlessly extracted from your fingertip and then it is placed on a slide so that it can be viewed under a specialized microscope. At this stage, since the blood is freshly extracted, it is still very much alive. The microscope is attached to a screen so you will be able to see your live blood while it is being assessed. I will walk you through all the particulars and point out any areas of concern.
What will be revealed ?
A LBC blood test gives a clear picture of your general health, including:
• Nutritional deficiencies, including iron, B12, folic acid and essential fatty acids
• Digestive issues like leaky gut syndrome and liver stress
• Oxidative damage due to stress, smoking, alcohol or other poor lifestyle habits
• Immune system balance
• Digestive health including digestion of fats
• Parasitic infections
• Allergic tendencies
• And much more….
At the end of your test, Cassie will provide you with a report that contains recommendations to follow in order to improve your health (for instance, nutritional changes or suggested treatment modalities and/or supplements).
