Live Cell Microscopy Primer


It is a real treat and a privilege to be able to hear Grada talk about the emerging practice of live blood analysis. Here are her Purple house notes and also below a bit of the background reading I’ve been doing on the subject and a most excellent contribution from Robyn Hennessy.

Although not so long ago a microscope was standard equipment in a doctors office there is plenty of bad press surrounding the use of Live Cell Microscopy in primary patient health care at the present time in western medicine. Routine pathology now relies mainly on samples being shipped to distant laboratories. Even if the cells are not quite dead by the time they arrive, the staining and fixing techniques commonly used for imaging under a light microscope will render them non functional.

However Live Cell Imaging techniques are very much in the forefront of modern biological research and experimentation even if its not part of a visit to the Devonport Super clinic yet. The major microscope manufacturers such as Nikon and Leica maintain excellent websites if you would like to learn more about mainstream live cell imaging. This year at the Howard Hughes medical research centre “A new kind of microscope has been invented that is able to non-invasively take a three dimensional look inside living cells with stunning results.”

The diagnostic interpretation of the live images you will see is what remains controversial. Some practitioners such as Grada subscribe to the pleomorphic theory of disease put forward by Antoine Bechamp which is in direct conflict with the germ paradigm set out by his contemporary Louis Pasteur.

“Bechamp discovered tiny organisms he called “microzymas” which are present in all things – animal, vegetable, and mineral, whether living or dead. Depending upon the condition of the host, these microzymas could assume various forms. Bad bacteria and viruses were simply the forms assumed by the microzymas when there was a condition of disease. In a diseased body, the microzymas became pathological bacteria and viruses. In a healthy body, microzymas formed healthy cells.”

( Modern medicine has not exactly refuted this theory and i suspect even may have a slightly different way of describing an essentially similar process. I have been much interested in following the developments in the understanding of the effect of selenium deficiency on the virulence of emerging viruses )

A vastly more powerful light microscope system – the Ergonom microscope, marketed by Grayfield Optical inc. has recently been invented by the german engineer Kurt Olbrich who also subscribes to this camp. It allows for unstained living samples to be observed, even cultured and studied reacting in realtime to various conditions.

Many thanks to Robyn Hennessy for passing along this information. The videos from the (Olbrich) Grayfield microscope website mentioned in the article are astonishing in their detail. As Walter says – ignore the sometimes difficult audio and concentrate on what you are seeing….. an be amazed!
