Dried Blood Cell Analysis
Dried Blood Cell Analysis is where 6-8 droplets of your blood are placed on microscope slides and are viewed in their dried state through the microscope. The drying patterns of blood droplets can explain a lot about what is taking place in the body. By examining the drying patterns of blood, information can be revealed about potential physiological conditions. Each sample or droplet of blood will dry differently and each formation in a blot is indicative of a specific health-related issue.
Blood holds much of the history of the body. The information provides a view of the body at the cellular level. By observing the blot, we will be able to look at tissue damage in the body caused by a variety of different environmental influences, free radical activity, hormonal imbalances, system stressors and toxicities.
Most importantly, Dried Blood Cell Analysis is not a means of diagnosing disease but rather a way of looking at the fidelity of the tissues and toxic conditions of the body.
Dried Blood Cell Analysis originated in Europe in the 1920’s. During this period of time, a German scientist Dr. Enderlein noticed a correlation between abnormalities in the body and patterns in the blood. In the 1930’s Dr. Bowlen of Boston, MA introduced Dried Blood Cell Analysis procedure in the United States after receiving training from General Dwight Eisenhower’s personal physicians, Dr. Heitan and Dr. La Garde. Today, this tool is not only used in North America, but also parts of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, as well as Asia. Even Massachusetts General Hospital uses it today.
