"For the life of the flesh is in the blood" Lev. 17:11 (KJV)

Since the beginning of time, man has been relying on that which he was given by his Creator to maintain and restore health. He has given us the nutrients that we need for survival, the knowledge to use it, and He has created our bodies in such a fashion as to prolong our lives as long as possible. Simply put, the Creator designed our bodies as self-healing organisms that will heal naturally unless the healing process is being blocked by some stressor on the body.

We have been created with blood traveling through our veins and arteries. This vital fluid carries essential nutrients to each cell, and carries deadly toxins away from each cell. Knowing that the blood comes into contact with every part of the human body, what better source can there be to evaluate the condition of the body? This question has been on the minds of researchers for generations, and it has been their diligence and perseverance that has brought us to what is known today as Dried Blood Cell Analysis (DBCA).

DBCA is a techique involving the use of a microscope to enlarge and examine several small blots of blood placed on a microscopic slide. By examining the drying patterns of blood, the practitioner can observe the free radical activity and detrimental conditions of the body. Each sample of blood dries differently; thus, each formation is indicative of a different health-related issue. The practitioner can find out valuable information about his client by using DBCA.

"He who has health has hope, and he who has hope has everything."

DBCA is probably the least explored modality discovered to date that is used for helping health professionals and individuals indentify deficiencies. Perhaps this modality is overlooked due to its simplicity and the lack of financial opportunity for those who would like to promote expensive methods for the purpose of making huge profits or gaining self-acclaim.

This technique does not require a strong scientific background, nor does it require that the practitioner go to great expense in the purchase of equipment before putting the knowledge to use. Most importantly, DBCA is not a means of diagnosing disease, but rather a way of looking at free radical damage, the fidelity of the tissues, and the toxic conditions of the body. Each red blood cell is replaced with a new blood cell every 120 days, thus DBCA can identify very recent changes in the blood's chemistry. Blood also holds much of the history of the body. By observing a dried blood blot, the information provides a view of the body at the cellular level. The researcher is able to look at tissue damage in the body caused by a variety of different environmental influences. Knowing what might cause an illness is very important in correcting a problem.


"If I have seen further...it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants." Isaac Newton

The technique of Dried Blood Analysis originated in Europe in the 1920's. It was at that point that German scientists noticed a correlation between abnormalities in the body and patterns in the blood. Drs. Heitan and La Garde, who were physicians with NATO, along with the help from Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, later brought the precedure to the United States. As with any new discoveries in science, before extensive study and research is complete, there can be much guesswork and hypothesis in the beginning. Unfortunely, when the research was in the early stages in the U.S., misstatements were made to clients and therefore, DBCA was discredited and nearly forgotten.

It was not until Dr. Robert Bradford was trained in DBCA in Tijuana, Mexico by Drs. Heitan and La Garde that it began to be studied again in the United States. Together, these doctors began using what is today known as the HLB (Heitan-LaGarde-Bradford) Test. Dr. Bradford relayed his knowledge on to his students, and the research began again in the U.S. Today, this tool is not only in North America, but also parts of Europe and Asia as well. Here in the U.S., it is still used at the hospital where a doctor caused it to be discredited so many years ago.

To properly relay the history of DBCA, it is necessary to discuss the works of several scientists of the 19th and 20th century.

Louis Pasteur: Known most widely for his work as a chemist, Pasteur first brought forth the germ theory of disease. This states that disease is caused in the human body foremost by the presence of germs. It was his belief that all infectious diseases were caused by germs, regardless of the health condition of the body as a whole.

Claude Bernard: Dr. Bernard stated that illness is caused not by germs, but by unhealthy conditions of the body. If the body is healthy on a cellular level, then germs would not be able to survive. If the body is not healthy on a cellular level, the body as a whole will not remain healthy. Bernard stated that to determine if a terrain was healthy, four areas should be studied. Nutritional status, pH, electromagnetic charge, and toxicity can influence the body to be healthy or deseased.

Antoine Bechamp: Dr. Bechamp expanded upon the theories devised by Dr. Bernard and then challenged the germ theory of disease. After many years of research, Bechamp discovered that tiny granules that he had thought to be inanimate, were in fact, alive. With partner, Prof. Estor, he wrote the Theory of Microzymas. This theory states that these small granules survive within all living species and both build and destroy tissue. In a healthy environment, the microzymas reproduce in a normal and orderly fashion. When the environment becomes unhealthy, the microzymas become distorted, lead to a diseased state in the host creature.

Gunther Enderlein: Dr. Enderlein expanded upon the theories that Dr. Bechamp had devised. He discovered that the cell was not the smallest unit that can live on its own, as had been previously believed. In addition, Dr. Enderlein first stated that blood is not a sterile substance. Organisms can survive in the blood, and when the conditions are right, they can cause the body to be in a diseased state. He also proved earlier statements made by Drs. Bechamp and Bernard that germs are not the cause for illness, they are merely symptoms of the illness.

Royal R. Rife: Dr. Rife was a microscopist in the 1930's. He found that, by altering microbes, he could change a healthy cell into one with potentially deadly effects. With additional alterations, the unhealthy cell could be transformed back into a normal, productive part of the organism.

Without the work of these individuals and others who have worked with them, DBCA and the field of Natural Health would not be where it is today.

Blots, Zones, and Patterns

In a typical sample, eight blots of blood will be taken from the client. Each of these blots has a specific meaning. There are signs that can only be read in certain blots. For example, signs showing possible heavy metal toxicity and poor vitamin absorption should only be looked for in the first blot, where as signs showing colon or reproductive organ problems should be looked for in the last blot. In other cases, the number of blots in which a specfic ailment can be seen may give an idea as to the severity of the problem. Example, as colon or reproductive organ move forward into earlier blots, severity increases, generally indicative of chronic, long-term health concerns. See figure 1.

Each blot in DBCA could be thought of as a bull's-eye. Each zone represents a different part of the body. As the patterns move farther away from the center of the blot, the potential problem moves farther away from the center of the body. Unlike in Iridology, where the blot is to be thought of as the face of a clock, in DBCA patterns showing in the center of the blot are indicative of problems in the abdominal area, the reproductive organs or the colon. The exterior of the blot represents those sections of the body farhest from the center, like the head, neck and skin. A pattern that shows up in zone 3 at 6:00 has the same meaning as a pattern that shows up in zone 3 at 9:00. Each potential condition has its own way of that it might show up in the blood. See figure 2.

While the zones are very important to DBCA, they are guidelines, and should be thought of as such. The practitioner needs to use his judgement as to where a pattern lies in the blot. Keeping in mind, patterns are definitive enough to stand alone, and while generally they will appear in the same zone each time, a little variance is no cause for alarm.

When using DBCA, the first sign the practitioner should be aware of is whether or not the blood properly forms a ball on the client's fingertip. This is known as "the red ball test". If the blood does not rest on the fingertip in the form of a ball, but rather spreads over the fingertip, conclusions could be made about the client's health. health related isses such as a protein deficiency, digestive insufficiency, enzyme deficiency, kidney problems or anemia could be at fault for failure of the "red ball test".

More than 150 years ago a British physician, T.W. Jones, asked the question, "Why does the blood circulating in the vessels not coagulate?" Or, stated in reverse, why does the blood coagulate once it leaves the vessel? Though the biochemical mechanism involved in answering each of these questions differ, the final answers have not yet been found after 150 years of diligent research.

Almost 130 years ago a French physician, A. Trousseau, recognized that the blood of cancer patients is in a hypercoaguable state and is in the process of clotting even while coursing through the body (this is why practitioners clean the blood of cancer patients). Cancer is in the blood. The name that has been given this discovery is still in use today as "Trousseau's syndrome". Don't worry, I'm not going to go into all the mechanics of blood clotting. As a matter of fact, I've bored you enough. I just wanted to let you know there is a fast, easy, economical way of seeing past, present, and future problems that may exist in each individual. Check it out and find natural means to better health. Every day the body is fighting a war. It is fighting a war for survival against our environment and against our own lifestyles, DBCA is an assessent tool that tells us how our bodies are doing in this battle.

Interesting article

Some reasearchers believe that the electromagnetic field/frequency of the blood cell is at the center of our immune systems ability to fight off disease and that it (emf/f) regulates our pain tolerance.

They reasearched the average frequency of the blood cell of new born babies ... built an electromagnet which produced that field and frequency. The test subjects arm was exposed to this for aprox 30 min, thus recalibrating test subjects blood cells.

I was a test subject. I was told that if I as much as drank one beer, this would negate any affects that I might otherwise have recieved.

Our diet causes certain hard metals and "other stuff" into our blood which causes changes in electromagnetic field and frequency of our blood cell. After treatment I felt 10 years younger and three times as strong; there must have been something to their theory! ??

voted up and interesting! I am just starting to learn about emf and have found a doctor (however too far away for me to see him) that has had incredible success in treating fibro pain without using drugs (I hate pills and believe they do more harm than good). He is using Oxygen therapy, nutrition, electrical (not 10s unit) and a couple of other treatments. I have an interview with him in a couple of weeks so I can write some hubs about his work. I'm learning and learning as much as I can about holistic medicine as anything natural is so much better for your body than something synthetic. Really neat article!

Jerami, with respect, that sounds like pseudo-science quackery to me.

Jonny .. It may sound like it, all I know is that before the study I had chrinic (crippling) lower back pains, and afterwards was handling 24" 2x12 headers like I was 20 years younger. I know what it did for me, but I can't prove it.
