What is live blood analysis (LBA)?

In recent years, there has been a surge of interest in alternative health practices. One such method that has gained attention is live blood analysis (LBA).

LBA is like a window into your body’s inner workings. Unlike standard blood tests, which examine a fixed (dead) sample, LBA involves observing and analysing a drop of your blood under a high-powered microscope in real time. It’s called “live” because you can see your blood cells moving and interacting right before your eyes.

This technique, often endorsed for its potential to provide valuable insights into your health, differs significantly from conventional blood tests. Dr Annelise Bunce, a homeopathic doctor from Linden in Johannesburg, believes LBA to be an extremely useful tool in her practice. As she explains, “While blood tests try to diagnose an illness, LBA looks for imbalances that can be rectified by changing the patient’s habits.”

LBA can help you understand a range of health concerns. It’s often used to spot nutritional deficiencies, assess the state of your immune system, and more. Some practitioners also use it as a complementary approach to guide personalised health plans.

“We don’t use LBA to diagnose, but to actually motivate a patient to change their behaviour. These days, people are very visual. So when you show them the blood on the screen, explain to them what healthy blood should look like, and give them recovery strategies, they become very motivated to implement them. They come back a week later and see the difference in the blood samples,” says Annelise.

The sceptics have their say

While LBA is becoming more popular, it has faced criticism from the mainstream medical community. Some sceptics argue that it’s not as scientifically validated as traditional blood tests. They also say that interpretations can vary widely between practitioners, which can lead to inconsistent results.

Another point of contention is the potential for misinterpretation. Because LBA is a visual assessment, there’s room for subjectivity in the analysis. This means that different practitioners might come to different conclusions when looking at the same sample.

No silver bullet

“People these days look for the silver bullet. They want that one thing that’s going to give them energy and make them healthy instantly, but that’s not how LBA works,” explains Annelise. “We look at the various factors in the blood to find if there are particular imbalances and then make a plan to address them through lifestyle changes which, in the long term, could improve the person’s health.”

LBA is like having a front-row seat to your own health. It’s a fascinating technique that can provide valuable insights into your well-being. However, like any tool, it’s not without its limitations. If you’re considering LBA, remember, it’s just one piece of the puzzle when it comes to understanding your health. Always consult your healthcare provider for a comprehensive assessment.
