    What is a live blood screen test? I would like to have one of these done.

    Thanks for your help!

    Are you talking about dark field electron microscopy? That is the only live blood screen I know of, where they prick your finger, put the blood on a slide connected to a TV set, and look at what is going on magnified many, many times.

    You can see the condition of your red cells, and other blood components like yeast fermentation bubbles, undigested fats, bacteria, the effects of excess free radicals, etc.

    If you are speaking of something else, then I'm afraid I have no idea what it might be.

    I think dark field is definitely worth doing, but it's accuracy depends upon the training of the person reading the sample, and that can vary widely.

    Good luck with it,

    that is how mine was done. That is how my Lyme was finally found. It is now showing up on Quest, but I had it sent to Igenex, too. The Dr that did the Live screen was a Homeopathic DO.
