analysis of vital peripheral blood
Video Microscopy of Live & Dried Layered Blood Analysis is a unique
technique used to formulate an appropriate course of natural
health-building and lifestyle principles to optimize health, prevent
disease, and to monitor individual effectiveness.
Live Blood Analysis and Dried Layered Blood Analysis are the two
applications that are discussed in the following information. The two
applications are modeled through three viewing techniques: Phase
Contrast & Dark Field (Live Blood), and Bright Field (Dried Layered
Blood), also known as the Oxidative Stress Test or Mycotoxic / Oxidative
Stress Test (M.O.S.T).
The test is different from conventional blood tests ordered by the
physicians because it is a live sample, where the qualified Analyst is
looking for microbial activity, condition of cells, and anomalies that
are not typically ordered in blood testing using the traditional method.
The dried sample suggests the areas of the body that may be congested,
or holding toxins, impairing proper functionality.
Phase Contrast Microscopy
An image of fibrin spiculae which should not appear in live blood at
all. It indicates that the balance between haemostasis and fibrinolysis
is too much in favor of clotting.
Around 1930 Professor Fritz Zernike, a Dutch professor in Physics,
discovered phase and amplitude differences between 'zeroth order' and
'diffracted' light that can be altered to produce favorable conditions
for interference and contrast enhancement through microscopy. He
succeeded in devising a method, now known as phase contrast microscopy,
for making unstained, phase objects yield contrast images as if they
were amplitude objects.
Phase contrast microscopy was very successful and ultimately gained
widespread application, resulting in Zernike's award of the prestigious
Nobel Prize in physics in 1953. Phase contrast, by "converting" phase
specimens such as living material into amplitude specimens, allowed the
observing scientists to see details in unstained and/or living objects
with a clarity and resolution never before achieved.
In Live Blood Video Microscopy this unique technique of viewing living
blood is not a diagnostic procedure for any specific disease. It is more
a screening test to reflect how ones dietary and lifestyle habits may
be influencing health, and where appropriate adjustments are necessary
within these areas in order to optimize health and prevent the onset of
disease. Health problems and degenerative conditions can be prevented
with early nutritional intervention, and Phase Contrast Microscopy can
detect many nutritional imbalances and deficiencies before chemical
blood tests can show abnormalities.
This unique Phase contrast technique of viewing living blood is
different from regular blood analysis because it uses whole, unaltered
blood as opposed to just parts of the blood. It is unstained and uses
higher magnification. The blood which is viewed directly by the Analyst
and the client/volunteer is alive, and not dead as in conventional
chemical microscopic blood evaluation.
This Phase Contrast image of blood containing colonies of
have proven antibody positive for
Candida Albicans (Drs. Majid Ali and
Robert Bradford, Capital University, Washington DC, USA 1994).
Techniques of Live Blood Analysis (Phase Contrast & Dark Field
Microscopy) can also view living microbial activity and their potential
degenerative effects within the bloodstream. The presence of bacteria,
fungi or parasitic forms observed in a live blood screening test is not
diagnostic of an infection with any of these organisms. The blood and
immune system is exposed to these organisms on a daily basis from the
intake of food, municipal tap water, and the polluted environment of
modern life. These organisms, when they enter the blood stream are
generally inactivated by the immune systems army of white blood cells
The mere presence of these bugs in the blood is not diagnostic of an
infection. For a blood infection to be present, a great deal more than
just microbial activity has to be observed. Microbial activity within
the bloodstream does however give indications of an acidic compromised
biological terrain suited for the growth and development of such
microbial activity and their excreted exotoxins, and therefore unsuited
for efficient cellular function which requires a balanced alkaline
Skeptics of Phase Contrast and Dark Field Microscopy believe that the
blood of most breathing, walking and functioning humans is completely
sterile and that viruses, bacteria, fungi and
parasites could not
possibly exist in the bloodstream. They argue that if
parasites, candida yeast, fungi or bacteria were really present in the bloodstream that the
patient should be lying in a hospital bed, perhaps dying of septic
shock. This dogma has been disproved by a great deal of research done by
many scientists around the world, especially in Germany, Eastern Europe,
New Zealand and countries where natural or drugless forms of medicine
are more accepted.
The list of research papers describing the presence of viral, bacterial,
fungal, and parasitic toxins in the blood of non-septicemic individuals
is voluminous. A growing number of pathologists (e.g. Dr. A. Ali) and
clinicians are recognizing the importance of using this kind of
information in daily practice of preventive health care.
This Phase Contrast image (at left) shows cholesterol in the
bloodstream. While the reading cannot be presented in mg/dl, one can
have a good indication on whether it is low, moderate or high.
While high cholesterol can be the result of high intake of saturated
fatty foods, it can also be an indication of pancreatic deficiency,
large intestine dysfunction, calcium/phosphorus imbalance, malabsorption,
liver disease, and liver dysfunction.
Dark Field Microscopy
Everybody is familiar with the appearance and visibility of stars on a
cloudless night. They can be seen because of the contrast between their
faint light and the black sky forming a background. Of course stars
shine both night and day; it is just that they are invisible during the
day because the overwhelming brightness of the sun obscures the faint
light from the stars.
AT left is a Dark Field microscopic image of agglutinated erythrocytes
(red blood cells).This is due to several imbalances within the diet as
wells as emotional stressors.
It lowers oxygen to the tissues reducing cellular efficiency, inhibits
efficient nutrient utilization, hinders the efficient removal of
metabolic waste, and makes the circulatory and lymphatic systems
This same principle is applied in Dark Field Microscopy which is a
unique technique for making unstained objects visible. Dark Field
illumination blocks out of the central light which normally passes
through and around the specimen, disallowing any light other than
oblique rays from every azimuth to illuminate the specimen on the
microscope slide. In this way a situation is created as described above
with the stars. They become visible against a dark background when lit
obliquely. Objects are now observable using Dark Field Microscopy that
cannot be observed in the Phase Contrast Microscopy application.
This Darkfield Microscopic image (at left) show corrugated red blood
cell walls. This is partly due to lipid peroxidation of their bilayer
phospholipid membranes. The white dots on these poikilocytic RBCs are
Mycoplasma proliferation is implicated in many pathologies; mycoplasma
feeds on sugars and produces several forms of sialic acid as metabolic
These are pathogens that infect plants, animals and humans. They are
members of the mollicute family, cell-wall deficient and characterized
as a virus-like infectious agent (in-between a virus and bacteria in
complexity). There are hundreds of different mycoplasma subtypes and
numerous isolates within any given subtype. For example, mycoplasma
arthritidis can cause arthritic conditions, whilst mycoplasma pneumoniae
is involved in respiratory conditions.
Mycoplasmas have a special interaction with the lymphoreticular system
in that they are immuno-modulating pathogens that can compromise
T-lymphocytes. By the time mycoplasma becomes visible in a live blood
sample there is an urgent need to restore the clients immune-competence.
Mycoplasma is a single cell bacterium that tends to make sore, achy
muscles, pneumonia, arthritis, and
lupus type symptoms. 60 days of super
strong antioxidants inclusive of Beta-Carotene,
Selenium, Zinc, Grape Seed Extract, Sea Kelp, combined with amino acids
I-Cysteine, I-Glutathione will be of great benefit.
Dried Layered Blood
The coagulation in this slide above shows strong fibrin interconnections
and no disseminated intravascular coagulation typical of a normal
healthy dried layered profile.
In Dried Layered Blood Analysis (coagulation morphology / Bright Field)
one examines the result of the clients/volunteers coagulation cascade.
This is seen through cellular oxidization and degeneration, which is
characterized through the fall out of fibrin toxic masses, gathered from
one droplet of blood and collected in layers on the slide.
This application of viewing dried suspended blood samples offers the
qualified analyst and client valuable clues to potential degenerative
patterns. Through the oxidation of the blood cells, and toxins present
in the blood we are able to see characteristic patterning of an
alternative pathway other than the extrinsic or intrinsic pathways. This
allows us to identify what parts of the body are holding toxins and
therefore functional capacity may be impaired. This technique may often
present profiles that warrant the analyst making recommendations that
the client visit their primary care physician for additional tests.
Coagulation in this slide shows a profound absence of fibrin network
which reflects an amino acid deficiency caused either by an ingestion,
digestion or assimilation problem The above slide is a profile typical
of individuals with chronic digestive irregularities and bowel toxicity.
This profile above is indicative of mental / emotional stress which
indicates potential effects on the functional efficiency of the adrenal
Since the systems within the human body are all interconnected,
functioning as a whole, then by viewing the living elements of human
blood using 'Phase Contrast,' 'Dark Field' modalities, one can observe
biological imbalances that can have implications on the functional
efficiency of various biological systems and the organs that comprise
the system. By using the 'Bright Field' modality (dry layered blood) of
analysis, one can gain insight into degenerative patterns and
indications in various areas of the body.
Darkfield vs. Brightfield
This diagram compares the essential components of brightfield and
darkfield microscopy. The difference in illumination (shown by
stippling) of the sample between brightfield and darkfield is emphasized
in the diagram. Darkfield utilizes a darkfield "stop" illustrated by the
"spider stop" placed below the condenser. This stop blocks the center of
the beam of light to produce a hollow cone of light. This light does not
directly enter the objective lens. In contrast, a solid cone of light
illuminates and enters the objective lens in brightfield. Only light
that is scattered by the sample (depicted by the lines in the diagram)
and enters the objective lens is seen as an image in darkfield.
A darkfield microscope works the same way a standard microscope does,
but it uses a different system to illuminate the specimen.
I. Some Facts about Live blood Analysis
See the most important element of your body come alive - your blood. You
can actually watch as your blood reveals nutritional deficiencies,
hormonal imbalances, digestive problems, liver stress, bacteria and
parasite levels. Then discover how you cart be an active participant in
correcting any areas of concern. Together, we will establish a proactive
nutritional plan that will put you back in control of your own health.
A growing number of practitioners in North America are rediscovering
Live blood Microscopy, a popular procedure and mainstay of preventive
medicine in Europe. Live blood Microscopy was first used in medicine for
diagnosing infections. In part because of the pioneering efforts of
Canadian scientist Gaston Naessens in the 1980s, Live blood Microscopy
is gaining popularity, especially with naturopaths and holistic doctors.
Live blood analysis differs from traditional medical blood testing in
which preserved blood is sent to a laboratory for an "autopsy" and
analyzed for chemical composition and cell counts.
HOW IT IS DONE
we draw a drop of your blood from your fingertip and place it on a
microscopic slide. Then a special lens inside the microscope projects an
intimate view of your living blood onto a television screen by way of a
video camera. This camera is hooked up to a device enabling us to take
photographs of a patient's blood condition before and after treatment.
The result is a living picture of the cellular you.
WHAT LIVE BLOOD MICROSCOPY CAN REVEAL
Cell damage caused by free radicals-unstable molecules created by
tobacco smoke and other toxins
Cell size and shape abnormalities from immune disorders
Liver or bowel toxicity
Folic acid and vitamin
Uric acid crystal and risk of
Poor circulation, oxygenation level and abnormal blood clotting
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE
approximately 35-40 minutes.
The red cells are uniform in size and shape and appear as round circles
on a gray background. The center of the cells are lightened somewhat and
slightly off-white in color. They reside freely in their own space, not
overlapping or slicking together, but gently bouncing off each other.
The white cells are about as large as two red cells and have a rather
grainy appearance with 3 to 4 dark, irregularly shaped lobes inside the
cell. Rather than being round, they display many different shapes and
are active and moving. In normal blood there are about 700 red cells to
every white cell. The blood serum surrounding the cells is clear without
parasites, bacteria, clots, or other undesired floating masses.
II. Layered Dried Blood Analysis
Ppp's are polymerized protein puddles. They may appear as white dots,
lakes, or rivers, and are the expression of free radical activity and
clogged, toxic lymphatics. 2 micron sizes are related to
hypersensitivities, allergic reactions. 30 microns are related to both
physical and emotional stress, physical strain. The deeper the layer,
the more chronic in all conditions. 40+ microns are related to
degenerative conditions. The larger the ppp's and the greater numbers,
the more serious the condition.
Layers 1 and 2 (the largest layers) give more accuracy or are more
indicative of the condition on the outside of the body; skin, lymph,
eyes, ears, nose, throat, mouth, and also brain, hips and feet.
Layers 3, 4, and 5 give more accuracy regarding lung, breast and hormone
Layers 6, 7, and 8 are more accurate for sex organs, kidneys, live
spleen, gall bladder, pancreas, stomach, stress, allergic sensitivities.
The first or larger layers are more indicative of shallow, acute, or
more temporary conditions. The deeper or smaller layers are more
indicative of deeper seated, chronic, long term conditions.
Round and clear ppp's are indicative of inflammation, soreness,
swelling. Localized ppp's in the sample (not throughout) indicate
localization of the problem in the body, rather than systemic
conditions. See the rings chart for location in the body.
Total disbursement of large ppp's in all rings is an expression of
toxicity and advanced systemic degenerative conditions.

Live Blood under the Microscope
It's true that an individuals life and health energies show in the drops
of their blood. Using high powered video microscopes to evaluate the
shapes and other properties of individual blood cells can be very
revealing. Often things are noticed that are never seen using
traditional methods of blood screening.
In itself, live blood screening with microscopy is not a diagnostic
procedure. However, it can often point you in a direction to take for
further diagnostic testing. For our purposes, we simply want to view the
"terrain" of the blood to catch a glimpse of the overall "toxic load"
and consequent state of health of our client.
Of the information that follows in this section, some is found in
medical physiology textbooks and is taught in hematology and
microbiology classes. Some of the information (particularly that which
deals with nutritional aspects of blood morphology) is usually taught to
health professionals through continuing education and alternative type
programs. As traditional medical and dietetic training is generally
inadequate and often based on incorrect assumptions about health, these
alternative programs serve as a much needed venue to disseminate this
information. It can be controversial. I say controversial because the
definitions, findings, causes, and correlation's are often the subject
of debate. On one hand there is traditional hematology, on the other is
standard hematology overlaid on a nutritional framework with different
ways of thinking about health and disease. There are varying
perspectives of what the observed morphology actually means. Some are
correct, some are not.
Further complicating matters, many microbiologists seem to work in a
vacuum. Three microbiologists may see or have discovered the same thing,
but they each call it by a different name. Going further, some
biologists have entertained entirely different philosophies.
When the serious student of health begins to dig into all aspects of
healing, he inevitably unfolds the theories of disease and concepts of
microbial pleomorphism as espoused by individuals like Guenther
Enderlein. Enderlein was a German microbiologist who did the most
extensive and exacting scientific work in this area. I refer to it as
the German biological perspective. For purposes of truly understanding
blood morphology, this area of study is an absolute necessity.
Unfortunately, American hematology and medical students do not get this
training. Consequently, the American health system is absolutely
ignorant of what is likely the biological reality behind a majority of
This following material takes you into all of these areas. The intent is
to give you a solid foundation in which you can further pursue each area
as you desire. The majority of what follows has explanations from
standard hematology, expanded views from the medical perspective, and
associated thinking and suggested tests that may be run by a traditional
medical practitioner (and some tests used by alternative practitioners)
if he/she were to have a specific microscopic finding. For the most
part, this aspect reflects an allopathic, symptomatic, name the disease
mentality which for many cases, is unnecessary for getting a sick
patient well. During the workshop, you will have the benefit of
instructor clarifications and expanded insights. Additionally, I've
included a brief overview of the "alternative" biological perspective
for each microscopic finding. After researching blood morphology for
months on end, viewing live blood for untold hours, watching biological
relationships unfold, meeting and discussing these issues with other
alternative practitioners, it is of my personal opinion that the
alternative view is the correct perspective in which to view blood
morphology and the biological processes which happen within.

STANDARD HEMATOLOGY - BLOOD BASICS
Blood is the fluid that circulates through the heart, arteries,
capillaries, and veins. It is the chief means of transport within the
body. It transports oxygen from the lungs to the tissues, and carbon
dioxide from the tissues to the lungs. It transports nutritive
substances and metabolites to the tissues and removes waste products to
the kidneys and other organs of excretion. It has an essential role in
the maintenance of fluid balance.
Blood varies in color from an oxygenated bright red in the arteries to a
duller red in the veins. The total quantity of blood within an
individual depends upon the body weight. A person who weighs 150 lbs.
has about 5 quarts of blood in the body.
Plasma accounts for about 55 percent of the total volume of the blood.
It consists of about 92 percent water, 7 percent proteins, and less than
1 percent inorganic salts, organic substances other than proteins,
dissolved gasses, hormones, antibodies, and enzymes.
The suspended particles of the blood comprise the other 45 percent of
the total volume of blood. They include erythrocytes (red blood cells),
leukocytes (white blood cells), and platelets (thrombocytes).
Red blood cells originate in the red bone marrow and are stored in the
spleen which acts as a reservoir for the blood system. The average red
cell has a life of 110 to 120 days. Aged red cells are ingested by
macrophages in the spleen and liver. The
iron is reclaimed from the dead
red cells and then transported by the plasma back to the marrow where it
is incorporated into new red cells. The great majority of the cells in
the blood are red blood cells.
Leukocytes (white blood cells) originate in the bone marrow and lymph
tissue. White blood cells are actively engaged in the destruction or
neutralization of invading micro-organisms and are then transported to
sites of infection and inflammation. For this reason, their life span in
the blood in usually very short (a life span of up to 14 days). When
infection is present their number are greatly increased and they also
become more mobile and move back and forth between the blood, lymph, and
White blood cells come in various shapes and sizes:
Granular appearing white cells are known as Neutrophils, which make up
about two thirds of all white blood cells; Eosinophils which make up
about 2 to 4 percent of the white cell count; and Basophils - which make
up less than 0.5 per cent of the white cell count.
Non-granular appearing white cells are known as Lymphocytes. These are
the natural killer cells and make up about 25-30% of all white blood
cells. Two types of lymphocytes T's and B's are involved in immunity.
Platelets or thrombocytes are small, clear, disk-shaped bodies about
one-third the size of red blood cells or even smaller and play an
important role in blood coagulation and clot formation. One of the most
important properties is its self-sealing ability to repair a leak in a
blood vessel. The life span of a platelet ranges from eight to ten days.
RECORDING LIVE BLOOD - SALIVA pH
When the blood is brought up on the microscope for study, it is a good
time to also take a reading of your clients Saliva pH. You'll remember
from the Rot & Rust Workshop (the pre-training session to this course)
that pH controls many things in the body. If the pH is off, many bodily
processes can also be off. Also, if internal parasite activity (endobiosis)
is seen in the blood, it could be that the pH in the blood has been
thrown off for some time and it's something you would definitely want to
correct. We'll learn more about this when we cover biological terrain.
Hours since last meal ______
Saliva pH _____
In doing this little test, it becomes an appropriate time to introduce
simple dietary/pH education. It is also the time to introduce the
concepts of "biological terrain" and can set up the patient for more
thorough urine/saliva testing. (This assumes you have not already
pre-educated your patient and have not yet included the urine/saliva
testing as part of your work-up.)
RED BALL TEST
The red ball test was something given to soldiers during the civil war.
If a soldier said he was too sick or weary to fight, he would get his
finger pricked with a pin to see if the blood beaded up on the finger or
if it was runny with no beading. If it beaded up, the soldier was
considered healthy and was given his weapon and sent into battle. If
there was no bead, he was sent to the recuperation tents. You can make
note of a quick "red ball test" when a drop is taken from the finger.
When a drop of blood appears on the finger it should bead up.
If the ball is absent it can indicate:
-low protein due to: lack of protein in diet,
-poor digestion (lack of digestive enzymes),
-anemia (low blood
"READING" LIVE BLOOD
It is absolutely fascinating to watch the play of life at the cellular
level. When you see the indicated item or activity listed below, the
contributing factors or causes shown are correlated to have been found
in most cases. Certainly variations may occur in individual situations.
Reading live blood in this fashion can really be considered more of an
art than a science.
Remember: You are not learning a diagnostic procedure for any medical
malady. A medical diagnosis cannot be made by looking at live blood
under a microscope. The real benefit of this procedure is to demonstrate
in a very visual way the realities of health to your client which will
make a lasting impact and will lock them into understanding and
complying with your suggested protocol. That is all.
The red cells are predominately uniform in size and shape and appear as
round circles on a gray background. The center of the cells are
lightened somewhat and slightly off white in color. They reside freely
in their own space, not overlapping or sticking together, but gently
bouncing off each other.
The white cells (neutrophils) are about as large as two red cells and
have a rather grainy appearance with 3 to 4 dark, irregularly shaped
lobes inside the cell. Rather than being round, they display many
different shapes and are active and moving, In normal blood there are
about 700 to 1000 red cells to every white cell.
The blood serum surrounding the cells is clear without
bacteria, clots, or other undesired floating masses. Platelets are free
NOTE: Concerning the names given to the items that follow, the most
widely known terms with hematological reference have been listed first.
Since we are also studying the pleomorphic reality behind blood
elements, the naming convention of Professor Enderlein has also been
listed. This will give us more or less a standard which we can use for
naming these biological entities. When appropriate an AKA ("also known
as") has been added with other biologists terminology.
RED BLOOD CELLS ROULEAU
RBC ROULEAU - Stacked RBC's. Worse stage of protein linkage.
CAUSE: Same as previous page, protein linkage. Often poor protein
digestion. The pancreas may be off. Excess dietary protein, poor
assimilation. Eating too much animal protein. Blood too toxic (altered
blood pH-zeta potential down) from stress, coffee, cigarettes, meat,
etc. Dehydration, not drinking enough water (which by the way, is one of
the top undiagnosed causes of many ailments). Eating the wrong foods for
the blood type, e.g. wheat consumption by type O's, beef consumption by
type A's, etc.
SIGNS: Fatigue, shortness of breath - RBC's cannot carry oxygen; stress
on heart. Cold hands/feet - poor circulation.
MED PERSPECTIVE: Peripheral blood erythrocytes often display the
phenomenon of rouleau formation and exhibits a specific role in the
pathogenesis of some disease. Plasma fibrinogen and Immunoglobulins are
some of the potent rouleau-inducing agents. Some industrial poisons such
as benzene, parathion & carbon tetrachloride not only increase this
phenomenon but also cause thrombotic and hemorrhagic manifestations as
well. Patients suffering from allergies, infections and severe trauma
may exhibit rouleau.
The presence of massive rouleau can be detrimental to patients suffering
from occlusive vascular diseases as it causes impairment of blood flow
in the small vessels that can compromise the red blood cells ability to
exchange carbon dioxide and oxygen gases. This results in localized
hypoxia and acidosis as well as generalized fatigue and less than
optimum performance. Severe or massive rouleau is not infrequently found
in patients with hyperglobulinemia and may be seen in many disease
states ranging from arthritis,
infarction and in patients with increased
alcohol intake. The
erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is usually increased because of the
increased ratio of mass to surface area resulting in rapid rouleau
fallout from the plasma.
ADD'L TESTS: Cholesterol, Triglycerides, WBC, ESR, SGPT, SGOT, Globulin,
RED BLOOD CELLS - CODOCYTES (TARGET CELLS)
As rouleau may be caused by acute phase protein elevations in the blood,
the possibility of serious disease complications exist when is does not
respond to nutritional therapy. If rouleau does not disappear after a
maximum of seven days and there is no evident tissue inflammation,
tissue damage or tissue necrosis, additional testing can be conducted to
rule out arthritis, arteritis disease, cholecystitis, cirrhosis,
endocarditis, rheumatic diseases, rheumatic heart, hepatitis,
hyperthyroidism, chronic infection, nephritis,
systemic lupus, ulcer,
colitis, neoplastic disease.
ALT VIEW: You will recall that the primary parasitic element of the
blood, the endobiont, in its myriad forms, possesses an inherent urge to
merge. When red blood cells become infested with the primary parasite,
their urge to merge pulls the RBCs together. This accounts for the lemon
shapes from the prior page, rouleau formations as shown here, and RBC
aggregation as indicated on the next page.
APPEARANCE: These are red blood cells that contain a bright white center
encircled by a dark ring that makes it look like a target. The center of
the cell does not pulsate or fade in and out, it remains static and
CAUSE: May be caused by increased cholesterol and
lecithin content, bile
insufficiency, liver disease, splenectomy or anemia. The lack of
pulsation in the middle of a target cell as opposed to a healthy
specimen is due to the fact that the cell membrane has collapsed on
itself. This is thought to be due to a lack of
picture on the right is a more 3 dimensional perspective which better
shows the severe concave, donut like nature of a target cell.
Anemia, tired, low energy.
MED PERSPECTIVE: Codocytes are erythrocytes that exhibit a dark circular
"target" pattern. Marked elevations of target cells is the result of a
shift in the exchange equilibrium between the red cells and cholesterol.
Conditions that reduce lecithin-cholesterol acetyltransferase
production, or interfere with enzyme mechanisms of performance results
in elevation of red cell cholesterol and serum phospholipid ratios.
Further, the bile salts content ratio in the plasma can affect the
exchange between cholesterol and the red cell membrane.
Target cells are seen in
hypochromic anemia, liver disease and on
occasion following splenectomy. Erythrocytes with this configuration are
cells lacking iron, therefore any disease process which affects red cell
iron absorption may produce target cells. Disruption of hepatic
lecithin-cholesterol acetyltransferase production in the alteration of
bile acid concentrations due to biliary obstruction can account for
increased red cell lipid deposition. The spleen also influences the
regulation of erythrocyte lipid content.
ADD'L TESTS: CBC with differential, serum iron, serum transferrin, serum
ferritin, and liver profile (SGPT, GGT, SGOT, LDH, Alkaline
ALT VIEW: Target cells have become parasitized by the endobiont.
PLATELETS; THROMBOCYTES; THECITS (Enderlein)
(Also referred to as Colloid Symplasts when aggregated - Enderlein
STANDARD HEMATOLOGY: Platelets, or thrombocytes, are small, colorless,
enucleated bodies. They are produced in the bone marrow by fragmentation
of megakaryocytes. Megakaryocytes are large cells found in bone marrow
that produce platelets by fragmenting their cytoplasm. Platelets play a
vital role in the hemostatic process, which prevents blood loss. When
the endothelial lining of a blood vessel is traumatized, platelets are
stimulated to go to the site of injury, where they form a plug that
helps reduce blood loss.
APPEARANCE: Platelets are typically very dark to black under phase
contrast, are not quite circular, nor square, and range in size from 2-4
PLATELET EXCESS - When the platelet count increases the condition is
known as thrombocytosis. This may occur in certain disease states such
as cancer, chronic infections, and certain blood diseases. It may cause
increased blood clot formation.
PLATELET DEFICIT - When platelet count decreases a condition called
thrombocytopenia occurs. This may happen either as a result of decreased
platelet production (e.g., bone tumor, chemotherapy) or excessive
platelet destruction (e.g., transfusion reaction, immune response).
PLATELET/THROMBOCYTE AGGREGATION. CAUSE: High triglycerides, excessive
red meat, stress, caffeine, sodas, chocolate, etc.
SIGNS: Circulation, capillary blockage, blood clots, heart.
MED PERSPECTIVE: Severe platelet aggregation can be a potentially
serious finding. Platelet aggregation can contribute to cardiovascular
disease which is the number one cause of death in the western world.
Several organic substances may promote platelet clumping which include
collagen, ADP, the catecholomines, certain immune complexes and fatty
acids. Cigarette smoking often contributes to "hyperactive" platelet
formation. Diabetics and patients with hypercholesterolemia usually
demonstrate increased platelet aggregation which can predispose them to
clotting disorders which may lead to a vascular thrombus and vessel
ADD'L TESTS: For aggregation rule out high fat diet as cause. If
platelet aggregation occurs concurrent with rouleau, acute phase protein
elevation caused by inflammation or tissue necrosis or allergy can be
suspected. A collagen-damaging disease is possible. If patient does not
improve after 30 days of nutritional treatment and dietary management,
test and rule out occult disease processes which may cause collagen
damage or neoplastic changes. If aggregation exists in absence of
rouleau and high fat diet is ruled out, check for excessive stress level
producing biochemical imbalance in patient. Other tests
-Cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, coagulation time.
ALT VIEW: Of the concept of fragmenting megakaryocytes producing
platelets, it is noted by Enderlein that megakaryocytes have lost their
ability of cellular and nucleic division due to massive infestation by
the primitive phases of the endobiont. What mainstream biologists have
been viewing as platelets being formed by megakaryocytes through the
fragmentation of their cytoplasm, is in fact a process of the endobiotic
infestation. For inquisitive biologists, research will show (and has
shown) that the ferments from thrombocytes are entirely different from
those of human cells, and plant enzymes can be identified on
thrombocytes. Platelets are of a pleomorphic nature, and develop as part
of the life cycle of the endobiont. They can and do develop beyond the
megakaryocyte fragmentation. Only the smaller 2 - 4 micron size are
apathogenic. Platelets can grow arm or leg type appendages/filaments,
some of which can stretch like a spider web across the viewing field.
When platelets begin to grow (which is a function of the terrain) their
BACTERIAL SPHERES; THECITS (Enderlein)
BIOLOGY NOTE: Pleomorphistically considered, all microbes partake in a
natural developmental cycle that begins with the PRIMITIVE PHASE (ie.
colloid), which is microscopically invisible or visible with difficulty.
It proceeds into the BACTERIAL PHASE; and finally will end with a FUNGAL
CULMINATION. The fungal culmination can also be replaced by a YEAST
The colloids in your blood will also be heading in a direction. Where
they go, how they get there, and the speed with which they arrive, will
of course be a function of the terrain which you have provided them
through your dietary habits, environmental exposures, thoughts, etc.
Many microscopists have called the white round puffy forms as seen in
the pictures above YEAST. This drives traditional physicians crazy
because they've been taught blood is sterile and
yeast cannot be found
in the blood. Researchers however have conducted anti-body studies in
blood with these forms present and the anti-body tests have definitively
read positive for
(Bradford/Ali, 1994). An
alternative view may be held that although anti-bodies may be present,
that does not necessarily mean the white forms are specifically
Many contend that the blood is unlikely to hold a conducive pH for
growth. However, following the pleomorphic behavior of all bacteria, we
know that microbial forms can see a
YEAST CULMINATION. If these puffy
white microbes were to move out of the blood and take up residence
elsewhere in the body, like the interstitium, organs, glands, etc., then
indeed they may go in the direction of a yeast culmination - and
anti-bodies would certainly be present in the blood as a result. So, if
the white forms are not outright
yeast, you can consider them as a
biological marker for the
yeast culmination either happening somewhere
in the body currently (more than likely), or the strongest potential for
it to happen if the terrain does not change for the better.
A parallel situation can be made in regard to elongated gray forms
(which will be discussed on the next two pages). Some writers have
called them FUNGAL FORMS. But the truth is, if you had fungus in your
blood, you'd be dead. However, the potential for FUNGAL CULMINATION may
be very strong, and if the microbe leaves the blood and enters the
interstitium, organs, glands, etc. where the pH is different, then
indeed that fungal culmination may succeed. Seeing these forms in the
blood may be a sign it has already succeeded. The culmination of the
fungal form of the endobiont MUCOR RACEMOSUS FRESEN, can easily be
obtained through cultivation out of tumor cells. This was accomplished
both by Enderlein and Schmitt (Munich) as early as 1903.
SPICULES: STANDARD HEMATOLOGY - fibrous (fibrinogen) needles in serum.
APPEARANCE: Straight, hair-like formations that look like pick-up sticks
in the plasma fluid.
CAUSE: Liver stress/toxicity/congestion and associated toxic bowel are
suspected when spicules are present. (Spicules could also be a healing
indicator if undergoing body cleansing, liver detoxing.) Toxins such as:
antibiotics, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, coffee, meat. Plugged/dirty bowel,
bowel pH off. Maldigestion and/or bacterial overgrowth can be suspected
as cause of bowel toxicity along with old, decaying, impacted fecal
fatigue, headaches, backaches. Autoimmune diseases:
lupus, MS, MG,
ADD'L TESTS: Evaluate bowel function. Urinary indican test. When
consumption, medication, and bowel toxicity have been ruled out and spicules show no response after nutritionals, liver profile to rule out
liver or biliary tract complications.
ALT VIEW: Spicules are composed of colloids that have arranged
themselves linearly. Their appearance is always due to an excess of
colloids in the blood. (Again what are colloids? They are primordial
protein substance.) Many spicules (along with RBC lemon shapes, rouleau
and RBC aggregation) is a sign of hyperproteinemia. The thicker their
structure, the more densely arranged and complex, the more
pathogenicity. As blood sits on the slide and spicules appear with
rapidity, the more inflammatory and serious - arthritis, joint problems.
PROTOPLAST; COLLOID SYMPLAST (Enderlein)
Spheroplast (denotes protoplast in round formation); Fibrous Thallus
(Naessens), Progenitor cryptocides (Livingston-Wheeler).
STANDARD HEMATOLOGY: Cell without a nucleus. Rather large structure in
the blood of which much is still not known. Said to be a bacterial
parasite which produces toxic by-products (endotoxins); indicates body
is toxic and physically run down; can invade body tissues.
APPEARANCE: Looks like a rock in the blood. It can be round, oblong,
irregular, or have jagged edges. (The more jagged the edges, the more
dangerous the finding.)
CAUSE: pH off, low oxygenation, immune system compromised, degenerative
SIGNS: Fatigue, immune weakness, possible degenerative disease
MED PERSPECTIVE: The presence of large numbers of protoplast structures
in peripheral blood is an unfavorable sign. Some authors propose they
are a collection of progenitor cryptocides (Livingston-Wheeler).
Progenitor meaning existing across millenia at the beginning,
cryptocides meaning cellular killer. Protoplasts are thought to be
related with infectious disease or neoplastic activity and or L-form
bacteria. They are thought to be viral in origin.
Diseases exhibiting increased numbers of protoplastic elements are
numerous and include neoplastic processes,
scleroderma and other
connective tissue diseases, infectious arthritic conditions and disease
processes that impair heart, liver and kidney function.
been associated with protoplastemia.
ADD'L TESTS: Multi channel 24 blood profile, CBC with differential,
thyroid panel, ESR, C-reactive protein, CPK, immunocompetency survey,
selected tumor markers, coagulation time.
ALT VIEW: Protoplasts are a conglomeration of colloids which develop
through the inherent urge to merge which all of the colloids in the
blood desire. Given the proper (or more to the point improper) terrain,
the colloids will all come together through a dynamic process called
symplastism. This is a quantum biological leap where many of the forms
instantly combine and become a stable form.
