Modern methods of assessment of the state of homeostasis in the body. Unlike ordinary microscopes, electronic microscope with a video camera allows testing of live blood drops observed under contrasting light.

In this way all changes in the blood (plasma and blood elements) are clearly visible, while blood has not coagulated yet. Thus, one can see all the processes in the blood in its natural environment. It is like we are observing the microcosm inside the body.

The microscopic technique is based on examination of living, unfixed and unpainted blood sample, which under high magnification on a dark background gives the opportunity to observe the image of the living blood drop on the monitor screen.

The advantage of this method is that both the doctor and patient are able to see on the screen, using a video camera, the enlarged image of the patient's blood in live movement, as well as any pathological changes, and during the follow-up examination the effects of drugs and herbal preparations.

This method gives indications for prevention, appropriate changes in patient's diet and the use of drugs, antioxidants and herbal preparations, which significantly reduces the risk of disease.

The testing of live blood drops gives insight into:

  • The state of erythrocytes, their mobility in the plasma, level of aggregation (coalescence) and disorders of their functions
  • The state of leukocytes and their functional ability to fight microorganisms and the impact of acid-base balance in their activities
  • The state of platelets, tendency to thrombosis and blood clotting ability (groups stuck together could lead to a heart attack or damage of other organs)
  • Possible damage to blood cells (red, white and platelets) due to the effects of free radicals, which cause many diseases (atherosclerosis, hypertension, MS, arthritis and others) due to the lack of vitamins, iron and folic acid caused by chronic oxygen deficit
  • The liquid part of blood – plasma
  • The degree of its purity
  • The presence of micro-organisms (bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi)
  • The presence of crystals of cholesterol, uric acid or pathological products (toxins, heavy metals, preservatives and artificial coloring)
  • The presence of atheromas plate, indicating the process of atherosclerosis of blood vessels
  • The presence of the fibrin fibers in the plasma, indicating liver disease
