I have always been a bit of a big baby about getting my blood drawn for any reason. As scary as the name sounds, Live Blood Analysis is easily one of the coolest things I did last month when I went over to Umoyo for a nutritional analysis.
I actually geeked out a lot and here is why.
Namwila, Head Therapist-Umoyo
Namwila, the Head Therapist attended to me and educated me on what a Live Blood Analysis is and is not.
It is a nutritional analysis and is NOT used as a diagnostic test, which is what I first thought. Namwila explained to me that the test helps profile liver function, pH balance, toxicity levels, viral loads, deficiencies and immune system strength in one’s body.
It is a glimpse of past, present as well as future conditions an individual may face as a result of their nutrition.
Two samples were taken; one for the live blood analysis and the other for a dry blood analysis.
I got a gentle prick on my finger and it was really not painful at all.
We started with the Live Blood Analysis.
It is called live blood test because the blood looked at is taken for immediate analysis and it is not stained with any chemical reagent. It is put under their high-tech microscope that has a camera and connected to the computer to allow us to observe he blood on the computer screen.
This was really cool. I was able see my blood on the screen and all the movements of the cells and particles in it. It really fascinated me. The amount of activity going on and just how much it revealed was astounding.
The cool part 🙂
Using a chart on the wall, I was shown what my sample was saying in comparison to the different pictures. With some, I compared fairly well and with others, not so much.
Namwila assured me to not worry as the analysis using the dry blood samples would be better indication of what a cause for concern is and what isn’t.
The dry blood analysis has eight spots of blood, with the first larger in size than the eighth.
This part of the test helps look at conditions in the blood that are either temporal or chronic. Any traces picked up continually in each of the eight spots show the chronic nature of the matter. The blood is less concentrated from the first to the last spot sample and that is how this is proven.
I was amazed at the findings of my analysis.
All smiles after my analysis
Namwila has no idea of my medical history but was able to ask me questions about alignments I actually have had in the past. Like my being prone to colds and skin conditions (11 and 12 were a bit rough for me), my joint problems and so much more.
I was even asked if I crave chocolate or ice.
I constantly crave chocolate. Namwila shared that that was my body telling me it needs more magnesium. How interesting! My analysis showed that I had a magnesium deficiency.
She suggested Umoyo supplements for that and also others to help give my liver the boost it needs, get my body pH levels more alkaline and get more iron and vitamin C.
I am one of the healthiest eaters I know, not to mention pretty fit. I had no idea just how many deficiencies I have, and that my body appears to not digest protein well enough. I may need to reconsider how much sugar really is in my food too. I realise now that with food, it is so important to ensure the quality and the nutritional value of everything I eat.
Have you ever done a Live Blood Analysis? Would you consider it? Do let me know.
