Nutritional MICROSCOPY - live blood analysis - basic health and healing articles

Practical Nutritional Health Articles - live blood analysis / MICROSCOPY - healing your inner terrain

Your body is an amazing eco-system of intricate, interdependently functioning organs - physically, emotionally and energetically.
We work with your imbalances. We look at indications as to why your inner terrain is functioning the way it does and how it can be improved.
We gather information to understand the underlying reasons that you have symptoms and analyze the cause(s). 

We view your possible deficiencies and dys-regulation of your extra-cellular matrix (the milieu / terrain, in pleomorphism) with darkfield, brightfield and phase contrast lenses.

We view your body as:

  • an energetically open system that is brilliantly capable of self repair when given the right support
  • an incredible system effecting all cells and the nervous system
  • often dealing brilliantly in spite of man-made factors that can have a negative effect, reducing the matrix’s self-regulation ability due to:
    1. chemicals and toxins
    2. accidents
    3. e-smog and geopathic stresses
    4. lifestyle and diet deficiencies
    5. psychological / emotional shocks, unresolved long-standing conflicts and unresolved emotional disturbances

“If I could live my life over again, I would devote it to proving that germs seek their natural habitat - diseased tissue that needs healing - rather than being blamed and the cause of the diseased tissue itself; eg. mosquitoes seek stagnant water, but do not cause the water to
become stagnant”
                                   Dr. Rudolph Virchow (Father of Pathology)

Did you know?

  • red blood cells turn over every 100 days or so and the majority of the white cells - neutrophils - every seven days like clockwork
  • skin cells slough off every 7 days
  • GI cells replaced themselves every 5 - 7 days
  • fatty tissue cells replace themselves every 3 weeks
  • 600 billion cells die and replace themselves daily and without a thing we can do about it but cheer them on and support them in their brilliant work so as little as possible goes off the rails!

Nightshades - feeling cranky - sore joints - inflammation everywhere - can be 'bad actors' teamed up with lectins - give these foods a rest
Nicotine / Solanine / Tomatine – acetylcholinesterase inhibitors - in the nightshade vegetable family. Solanine is a glycoalkoid poison found in the leaves, fruits, berries and roots or tubers of potatoes, tomatoes and eggplants - and other foods. It is one of these plants' natural defences - not so great for our joints! continued at

Brilliant Benefits of Oxygen / Ozone Therapy for Everyone, Athletes and especially Diabetics and people with HIV / Aids!
.. an unusually wonderful, graceful, un-intrusive detoxification method.
 A therapy with the gentle escape route for your toxins! Unlike Infrared Sauna, it is beneficial (AND even, if you still have your mercury (silver) fillings).
   *  destroys harmful bacteria and virus', hepatitis, candidiasis (yeast overgrowth), parasitic infections, mycotoxicosis, etc; stimulates the immune system / rheumatoid arthritis; improves blood circulation to the capillaries / decreases viscosity / separates the red blood cells / supports peripheral vascular diseases, arrhythmia
    *  can improve lung function / improves the ability of red blood cells to pass on oxygen to other tissue / emphysema, asthma, chronic bronchitis etc.
    *  promotes anti-aging / rejuvenation by increasing oxygen delivery to cells, tissue and organs
    *  decreases inflammation, pain, relaxes tired muscles / fibromyalgia, relieves stress and "burnout"; nerves are calmed; speeds up the metabolic process (Improves circulation and nutrient delivery within the body) and results in a loss of 200 - 250 calories per session); reverses hypoxia (lack of oxygen) in the tissues - gangrene, diabetic infections, AIDS / HIV, etc; detoxifies - reduces environmental toxic load such as glyphosates; and is esp. helpful with environmental hypersensitivity.

LECTINS and INFLAMMATION - nasty, natural little poisons causing “auto-immune” challenges 
There are lots of ways in which inflammation is created in our bodies - unwittingly; there are lots of ways we can eliminate inflammation from our bodies - mindfully.
Normally we know inflammation to be a temporary, healthy, 'heads-up" in regards to the healing of an injury, an infection or an illness. When the inflammation is a chronic, un-ending cascade of flare-ups, then a wholistic approach needs to be embraced - rheumatism, colitis, arthritis (and actually - all the 'itis's), aching joints, swollen tissue, non-stop drippy sinus', overly dry sinus', etc.
There are lots of ways inflammation mimics other disease symptoms that receive many labels; lots of ways inflammation stealthfully triggers other health issues ...

Loving your Gut - Repairing Intestinal Damage by Glyphosate
First - our Challenged and Often Maligned Gut Bacteria: Glyphosates, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides (and God knows what else we don’t know about) are a permanent addition to our daily food, water and air consumption, that the powers-that-be allow / approve AND done with “scientific backing”. These toxic poisons (would you add a few drops to your drinking water?) and their multitudinous ingredients are real crowd manipulation (not tested by the accepted double-blind cross-over and reproducible and repeatable methods). They are bio-cides. If these poisons kill bugs or weevils in nature, will they just smile and sooth us in our stomach and intestines?

Surviving Chemo and Radiation. Now how do I fix myself?
“What is the VERY Least I Can Suggest to a Loved-one After Surviving Chemo?”
Clients will ask “what can I do for my Mom or partner or loved-one who is dead-set on following the ONLY options provided by their doctor(s) and now are suffering the consequences of harsh side-effects. (Chemo, surgery and radiation are still the only 'approved' methods to ‘combat’ cancers.)
There are debilitating side-effects that come with that type of “choice” that we have assumed to be the only possibility. Because I’m used to not guessing, but looking thru my microscope for answers, including to see what’s a clear physical reality, I never really say / give / pass along too much advice about someone else’s state of health and how to help others out who are not present – just isn’t right to do so... BUT, here are some suggestions that are a bare minimum that will be a very welcome respite for a damaged body - at


Tips to Boost Mood Swings and Subtle Depression​
Add an instant lift; Add a nut; Add a drop of LUGOL’S iodine; Add Molybdenum, Lithium and Manganese; Allergies - insidious evil; Dr Coca Pulse test; B12 deficiency Methylcobalamine; ADD ozone / oxygen therapy
the forgotten gut; Tissue Transglutaminase Antibodies blood test (tTG-IgA); ADD MAGNESIUM; Ortho-Molecular Smarts; Ortho-Molecular Smarts in a different and complete form - full details and suggestion at

JUST WHY would I want to use IODINE? 
There are differing types of iodine – and all are inexpensive and therefore not sold by the big pharma industry and therefore not focused on or worse, not known / respected by your GP.

DR Gold's Thorough Review of Hydrazine Sulphate - a credible cancer therapy
On February 21, 2008, I placed a blog on MedTruth, "A Dog Has a Better Chance of Recovering from Cancer Than You Do," in which I attempted to show, in dramatic fashion, that the public is being "hoodwinked" from using hydrazine sulphate for human cancer, principally by the U.S. National Cancer Institute... continued at

Mistletoe Cancer Therapy
There are many profound and fascinating theories at the heart of anthroposophy. Anthroposophical medicine is a complex system - an art and a science of living and healing - that includes the integration of spiritual, emotional and physical components.

Buyer Beware - quickie HIV/Aids test kits. And the beginnings of HIV/AIDS research  
A client came recently with her HIV/AIDS test thingy (bot online) in hand that apparently showed she had a positive result. How could she have been exposed to the virus? A lot of concern and questions were put to rest with her blood analysis. Many conditions will generate a positive result from these online inexpensive do-it-yourself test kits such as multiple infections that are healing, pregnancy, recuperating from vaccines and malnourishment such as from cancer treatment and even the odd menopausal heat-wave....

The Cellulite Conundrum and dealing with it
We either have it already or really hope we’ll never get it. I’ve read so much on this topic - - lots of great creative writing. Lots of science fiction has come and gone... Yet the orange peel remains undefeated...

The therapies and suggestions of present day cellulite banishing has greatly improved over the decades. And here are some all-round, wholesome, easy, inexpensive, at-home remedies... cont'd at

Pulling your hair out? Don't know what to eat anymore!

- go paleo or go home
- only raw vegans will save the world
- soy is a highly beneficial health food
- soy is not for human consumption
- (for those over 60) margarine is good for you
- saturated fats are bad for you
- carbs are bad
- we all need carbs
- drink 8 glasses of water per day
Make sense of your food choices smoothly and with joy... con'd at

TURN ON your Natural GLUTATHIONE ... go from from struggling to flying People who wish to detox gently; people who wish to increase their healing potential (folks with Aids, or people with inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, bowel inflammations, etc); people who wish to boost their metabolism; and people who wish to create more energy, may want to double check their food choices so as to generate the most glutathione naturally... Glutathione plays a major role in de-activating toxic substances, as your body “handcuffs” toxins to a glutathione “chaperone” to help lead them to the exits — usually via the kidneys and urine and sometimes via the liver and bowel movements. Glutathione plays a major functional role in rebuilding (DNA synthesis and repair - protein, enzyme and prostaglandin synthesis, activation and transport). Glutathione is a serious cellular antioxidant, neutralizing free radicals and reactive oxygen compounds.

Dentistry Update ~ Oral Dental Fact & Fiction
FACT: “Silver” or amalgam dental fillings contain from 48-55 percent mercury, 33-35 percent silver, and various amounts of copper, tin, zinc, and other metals. Since mercury is the major component of the material, any representation of the material should include the word “mercury” - a powerful poison. Published research has shown that mercury is more toxic than lead, cadmium, and even arsenic. Furthermore... continued at

Insights into Cholesterol Meds and Excellent Alternatives
You’ve heard and seen the ads many times: simvastatin, statins, statin drugs, cholesterol lowering drugs, good HDL, bad LDL, sore muscles, and then the many, many, serious dangerous side effects... Statins have been known to cause muscle pain, weakness and atrophy. Yet, this information did not lead to further research, more medical scrutiny, more government oversight or any type of hue and outcry... Until now.

Something Really Fishy Going On!
Omega 3 oils, Fish oils, omega 3's from fish and crustaceans - useful details...and what to substitute when these sources are toxic...

Ahhh! My favourite food... fish... I used to say.
Then in recent years I backed off and ate only fish or seafood that was wild and rarely in a restaurant... as I understand they have a sharp eye on their bottom line and now I pass on eating fish altogether...
It’s taken me a while to pull my head out of the sand in regards to this toxic source of protein because I so love salmon, mackerel, mussels and oysters... I grew up on raw herring – many happy memories with my Dad at the raw herring stands in our hometown in Holland.
But alas... so sad.
About 3/4 of male fish caught, these days, are developing some forms of female sexual organs including having premature eggs in their bodies – abnormalities not seen in the past and too creepy to eat. Labs have found a protein in the blood of male fish that used to only be found in spawning female fish... what have we done! What have we allowed our politicians to do!
Is the female-isation of fish caused by the toxic stew they are now living in? Was this a harbinger of the outrageous #metoo campaign? Joking

It's not the Gluten... Some scientists sure have our backs with eager, honest knowledge and bounding enthusiasm and they indulge us to think in a fresh way. Put an hour or two aside; grab some organic popcorn and a glass of wine and have a fine evening.
* A brilliant thinker and someone who can explain the scientific details and pitfalls of what we are eating and make it seem simple: Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., in a great interview: The New Food Order: How Glyphosate, Herbicides & GMO’s Are Shaping Our Future

Imagine putting together a really healthy meal - organic / slow cooked / lots of raw / maybe some gluten free options for a particular friend / no soy / all good fats... and THEN the spoiler! BAD SALT!
ALL salts, before we refine/process/torture them, pack a powerful punch. There can be up to 80 trace minerals and elements found in most salt (sulphates, magnesium, calcium, potassium, sodium, chloride, borate, strontium and iodine and so on). So why all the fuss about which salt is better?  
It’s in the processing! Extremely high heat processing (much higher temperatures than ordinary cooking temperatures), is the biggest culprit in regards to the healthfulness of salt - any salt from anywhere and any colour! This article continues at

The Healing Power of Butter
Even though butter has been somewhat repatriated after we realized the margarine lobby had been less than honest and vert stealthful with us in regards to butter’s greatness in the past, many people still have a fear that there’s something significant to those “thou shalt not’s” of yesteryear.
One hundred years ago the consumption of butter was much higher than now and there was virtually no cardiovascular disease.

Why We MUST Have COMPLETE Proteins to Stay Alive and Healthy
A protein is a very, very long and complex chain of a collection of very many smaller amino acids - smaller, complex molecules, that, combined with nitrogen, other elements and comprise the building blocks of the varied types of proteins we MUST have - building blocks of hormones and enzymes.
Our bodies are about 20-percent protein by weight and about 60-percent by water. Most of the rest of our body is composed of minerals such as calcium (esp. in your bones).

How is your pH? - two easy tests you can do yourself at home

Health Canada’s PHARMACEUTICAL AGENDAS for us! How do we safeguard ourselves? We hear so many people talking about their anti-depressants as if it is normal to get to a point in life that they are “needed”, natural and a staple and without much thought as for how long. A whole year? A whole decade? Forever? Two tests we can do at home can help show us where we are at.

Pros and Cons of Vaccinations (and even how that affects HIV/Aids, no gene involvement, immune system damage, chronic disease, "damage from a distance" and retro-viral infections)
Mainstream media has done a bang-up job presenting the 'pros' of vaccines but not the 'cons'. Their corporate survival / funding fully depends on getting the 'pro' point of view out there - not just via the major television networks' advertising slots and content bias, but also by way of slanted interviews, news writing/data creation, magazine content guided by advertising, professional publications 'juried' content (doctors journals, health-providers' unions, billboards). Then there are the companies and sources of influence that Big Pharma and it's friends ... ... not even to speak of serious adeptness at heavy dis-information:

Supporting your Pancreas - Blood Sugar Imbalances - Diabetes and Hypoglycemia
If you’ve had your live blood analysis done, you would have looked at many aspects of your blood - red cells, white cells, and all sorts of interesting shapes in between doing the backstroke. You may have addressed a blood sugar imbalance - you would have seen a strangely shaped item - a very subtle shape (like lumpy angel-wings - an oligio-saccharide around a minute nasty protein speck - much smaller than a platelet and a white roundish shape nearby. This grouping of elements is called a pteroharpen. Such a unique name for a nasty little item!

B3 - Niacin - using it uniquely for deep sixing the blues
One of my heroes is Dr. Abram Hoffer.
He was an honest pioneer in the mental health field and gave us ortho-molecular Medicine.

Abraham Hoffer
He used a few supplements uniquely and very SUCCESSFULLY to treat depression, bi-polar disorder, shizophrenia and other mental health challenges. The main vitamin that he recognized and gave a whole new meaning to the use of vitamin B3 / niacin. After his overwhelming successes there should have been monuments to the man and Nobel prizes by the dozens... but instead the rise of psycho-drugs, pharma $$s, government covert programs, etc, got in the way of rational thinking and proper research. B3 cannot be patented now, so there's no money to be made here and even the FDA and Health Canada got everyone to move along - - nothing to be had here! The official daily minimum requirement, RDA, is a joke at 18 mg. Continued at


The #1 Vitamin Deficiency Damaging Our Brain - It's Many Masks, Lousy Supplements and Useless Tests and some Self-Help Details
You can begin enjoying a really sharp mind in only a few days!...
I see so much vitamin B12 lacking - deficiency in almost everyone I see for Live Blood Analysis - not all for the same reasons. As more and more (young) people switch to eating vegetarian and vegan - for whatever reasons - environmental, spiritual or financial - and often doing it on the advice of advertorials in dastardly "health" magazines that are covertly plugging products such as unfermented soy and spirulina and such, more and more deficiency mounts up.... I shudder.

A Great Head of Hair - to Have or Not to Have...
There are so many suggestions as to what will help to bring about a good head of hair that one wonders why the advice is so divergent. Why can’t there be a simple eat this and do that kind of advice!
If you consider that one square inch of your scalp skin contains 65 hairs, 100 sebaceous glands, 650 sweat glands, 78 heat sensors, 13 cold sensors, 1300 nerve endings, 9500 cells, 19 yards of blood vessels and lymph capillaries and 78 yards of nerves, then it does make sense that there is a multitude of possibilities for lack of hair and suggestions that flow from that.
Here are the most logical ones:

Hormone Replacement Therapy - Suggestions for pre-HRT or NO HRT
Hormone Replacement Therapy is based on the premise that your body is incapable of producing the RIGHT amount of hormones as we age at the right time. Hormone production alters as we pass through life’s stages and adjusts along with us. Hormone PROBLEMS are a function of how healthy or imbalanced we are with this - severe stress, PTSD, etc are examples. All these Hornymones work together!

Radiation Emergency Dietary Backup
This article is a nutritional heads-up as nuclear fallout from Japan is coming our way. TEPCO finally has admitted Fukushima suffered a nuclear meltdown on day one of the catastrophe at reactor one! And it wasn't just one meltdown - there were several. How to stay health now that we know nuclear contamination will probably affect us in north America, too. Of the six reactors in Japan that have constantly been in the news, three or four are now almost under control. But some of the fuel rods have melted down to a blob and at best a mini-Chernobyl is in progress. Mitigating and en-tombing the damage is now beginning but the falsely reported fallout into water, earth and air cannot be reversed.

Oil Pulling
As there is no industry or lucrative sales connected to "oil pulling" and as I cannot see anybody making big dollars from this simple health remedy, apart from sounding sensible and simple, I decided to try it. The theory is that our body expels toxins through the surface of our tongue (think of all the diagnoses in TCM that the tongue provides), which is most noticeable in the mornings after waking.

Eating According to the Glycemic Index - Not All Carbs are Created Equal
The index was initially designed for people with Hypoglycemia and Diabetes. This simple-to-understand index is a measuring system to show how fast a carbohydrate triggers a rise in blood sugar - the higher the number, the faster and higher the blood sugar response is. The higher the blood sugar rises, the faster and more insulin is triggered as a response!

Castor Oil Packs
"The Palma Christi" have been used therapeutically in ancient India, China, Persia, Egypt, Africa, Greece, Rome, the Americas and 17th century Europe. Castor oil applied externally in the form of "packs" is again very popular with natural health practitioners. 
In the Edgar Cayce Readings castor oil packs are often mentioned and people were instructed to use them to improve detoxification, elimination, circulation and stimulation of the lymph system.

Ug99 Spreads - Scientists Scurrying to Secure new Safe Strains
Fungus Ug99 has the potential to distort our future food prices and even lead to the rationing of many types of grains…. It sounds as if wheat has caught the flu! A worst case scenario has it that 80% of the world’s wheat crops could be wiped out as this ‘stem rust’ fungus spreads beyond Eastern Africa (Uganda and Kenya is where it started). Experts say it is now poised to spread past Iran and to enter the breadbasket of northern India and Pakistan, and the wind will inevitably carry it to all areas of the Northern Hemisphere.

DMSO 'a Little dab Will Do Ya'
DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) is derived from lignin, a binding substance of trees. The Crown Zellerbach Corporation, a mammoth lumber company, holds the patents on DMSO for use as an industrial solvent AND as a liniment for treating pain in horses. Crown Zellerbach licenses DMSO exclusively to Research Industries for marketing as a drug - the pure variety is called Rimso-50. Topically applied, DMSO has the unusual ability to act as a "chemical hypodermic needle", which is to say that it is rapidly absorbed through the skin and can take with it other substances that ordinarily would not cross the skin's barrier. (A health professional always needs to be consulted - no self-doctoring here!)

When you are diagnosed with cancer, you would have a plethora of questions concerning every aspect of your condition. Why me when I have been so careful all my life? How come others with toxic lifestyles can get away with a clean slate? Why didn't I know sooner? Now what should I do - who should I trust? Why is there so much contradiction - orthodox and alternative folks alike? Which cures, therapies, options should I choose or do I even get to choose, do I have the right to choose? Which doctors are telling me I don't have time to think and what is their motive? Does leaving thorough research to family members make me feel secure? etc...

A Tribute to Dr. Virginia C. Livingston
Looking Back at How She Saw the Future
THEN: “We are at the same point today (1987) as we were when bone marrow transplants were unheard of or scoffed at, 20 years ago.

We seem to be at that same point today.”

Magnesium - a strong anti-depression mineral
When someone was treatment-resistant to something, we used to think that a doctor or specialist just had not found the right medication or chemical for that particular disease or person. Then, over time, we came to see that in some cases, medications are trial and error.
Thinking more holistically led to scrutinizing imbalances rather than assuming that someone was pharmaceutically lacking. The obvious need to address the underlying cause(s) and imbalance(s), rather than trotting out chemical band-aids became recognized. An example of addressing serious nutritional imbalances, would be Dr. Abram Hoffer's great ortho-molecular work in regards to depression, bi-polar, shizophrenia, etc. His work never received it's deserved due and is thoroughly discussed at

Liver Disease: The Shameful Culmination Of Allopathic Therapy
Alpha Lipoic Acid is an enormously powerful antioxidant - naturally occurring - and protects most of the body’s trillions of cells from free radical attacks (as it is soluble in fat and water). Alpha Lipoic Acid supplements assist the cells in converting glucose into useful energy (and stabilizes blood sugar levels), promote natural anti-inflammatory processes, support subtle detoxification and a lot more. ALA is a good Samaritan and assists other antioxidants by participating in their recycling processes (e.g. naturally supports healthy levels of glutathione, Vitamin C and Vitamin E).
Oxidative stress / damage to cells is natural to some degree in the wear and tear of life and aging. It has also been implicated in the negative side effects of damaged nervous, cardiovascular and immune systems, and thus includes the brain, arteries, vital organs and skin layers. Oxidative stress is part of the damage that occurs when symptoms such as poor memory, fluctuating blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol abnormalities, vision problems, skin issues, etc show up.

Clutter Clearing - The Focused Work ~ lining up your ducks
Our thoughts create a large part of our reality and set the tone for our emotions and the calibre of our feelings. What we think; what nuances our thinking; what massages our thought outcomes; what emotions well up or prevail; and how we deal, modulate and embrace them are constant activities that we are engaged in - consciously and often not so consciously.
There is no better place to begin to creatively exert some control of this process than at home - starting with crossing the threshold - new opportunities to support or shift personal patterns and conditions. Your home - its contents, the state it is in and how you live in it - reflects you - all about you - your innermost state of your feelings - and then, it in turn, affects you. Successful, inviting, gracious, flowing and open - or limiting, closed, frustrating, stuck and shut down?

12 Points on Mercury Amalgam Removal Protocols
This article discusses safety and efficacy issues when deciding how best to approach the removal of mercury amalgam dental fillings - 12 Points on Mercury Toxicity by Dr Sir John Whitman Ray
1. Have an electrical reading of your amalgams done by a naturopath or dentist experienced in this area. An electrical current reading gives a general idea of the speed of electrochemical reactions occurring on the surface of the fillings. It also reflects the conditions that encourage conversion of elemental mercury into methyl mercury! The higher the negative charge, the faster the conversion rate... continues at


The Mind, Body, Mouth Connection
"A few weeks ago, a woman I knew, informed me that her bright, bubbly, 21-year-old daughter had been admitted to a psychiatric ward, suffering from depression, hearing voices and “disordered thinking”.

I found this more than a little odd, since this young woman had shown absolutely no psychiatric problems in her life and there was zero history of schizophrenia" ... this wonderful article by Bob Wallace continues at

Jon Rappoport - Zika: the essence of the hoax: analysis
"I’ve written a number of articles taking apart the Zika hoax, piece by piece, lie by lie. Here, I want to present an overview. My analysis centers on two questions.
One: Is there a true “outbreak” of microcephaly in Brazil?
Two: Has the purported cause, the Zika virus, been established scientifically?
First, is there a surge of microcephaly in Brazil, where the story started?

Understanding Skin Disorders - Carolin Markolin, PhD
There are many speculations why our skin becomes suddenly irritated and ill. Theories range from genetic predispositions, a sensitivity to food substances, to poor circulation and stress. Regardless of which theory is in vogue, conventional dermatology is at a loss when it comes to questions like: What provokes the outbreak of a skin disease? What determines its severity and duration? Why does one person develop an eczema, another psoriasis and yet another herpes? Why does a skin rash appear on a particular part of the body? Why is it on the left side rather than on the right?
