  • How to inform and create more effective protocols for your clients

Learn how to take a Live Blood sample

  • Analyse a dry blood sample as seen under the brightfield microscope

  • Do an evaluation of live and dry blood samples and use them in a clinical setting

  • Gather information from your clients and use it in conjunction with the analyses


  • Printed training manuals and reference laminates

  • Certificate of competency (on submission and acceptance of required case studies)

  • Digital templates you can brand and use with your own clients

On completion of the classroom section of the course you will be required to complete and submit 3 case studies of volunteer clients in your own time.

These must show your understanding of the various stages of an LDBA consultation and that you are able to use the information gained to advise clients.

Once the course tutors are satisfied, you will be sent a Certificate of Competency for the Live & Dry Blood Analysis Course which will allow you to upgrade your insurance and to practice professionally.

Microscope Training

Several microscopes are available on the course for practising on. You will be introduced to their functionality and use, and there will be plenty of time for you to become familiar with them (phase contrast is not part of the training but can be discussed).

Advice will also be offered about buying your own microscope to complete the required case studies in your own time.

It is important to realise that learning to use a microscope and recognising the blood conditions takes time. In order to become proficient you will need to put in lots of practise with family and friends before you attempt to start seeing clients.

Who Can Attend?

  • This course is open to anyone who has studied medicine, nutrition or naturopathy to a professional level (other natural health qualifications may be accepted if there is also a background in nutrition). You will be required to submit copies of your qualifications upon registration.

  • Experience or training in clinical practice is also a requirement as it is necessary to be able to make client assessments. This technique is an add-on enhancement to your practice and it is not possible to use it sensibly without the required background.

  • Finally, due to the technical nature of the subject matter being taught, students must be proficient in the use of the English language.

Can’t Get To London? - Why Not Study Online?

If you are unable to make the course in person, our Online Live & Dry Blood Analysis Training follows the same curriculum and is made up up of over 12 hours of video lectures and practical training. Studying this way allows you go over sections again to firm up your understanding.

Students of the online course also receive the same printed manuals and reference laminates, and have our tutors on standby to offer any help required.

After completing the course through our online portal and submitting the 3 homework case studies, online students will receive the same professional Certificate of Competency.

The modular format of the online course allows you to start whenever you like, work at your own pace, and learn from anywhere.
