Divine Nature & Live Blood Analysis...

I love homeopathy. I feel like it has been the primary source of healing for me ever since I changed my diet. I thank God for homeopathy every day.

But homeopathy is most effective when your body has the proper nutrition it needs. Good food fuels homeopathic healing.

Having said that, and already having talked extensively about diet, I wanted to share with you the supplements I take. 

I have waited a long time to share this with you because I wanted to make sure it was really benefiting me in the way that I hoped.

So here we go...

Paola's Facts about Supplements:
Fact #1: I know that synthetic supplements are dangerous and scary, especially when you have gut-problems and immune issues
Fact #2: Supplements, when ill chosen, have caused my bladder to flare and have pain. Not ok with that.
Fact #3: Selecting supplements is like a big guessing game. Muscle testing can help you know whether or not a specific supplement will agree with your body or not (i.e. it will/won't cause me to flare), but it doesn't tell you which ones you SHOULD be taking.
Fact #4: Supplements are expensive. That's the long and the short of that one.
Fact #5: People with compromised guts and immune system problems have a hard time actually absorbing & assimilating the very vitamins/supplements they are taking. It can even get into your blood stream, but you can't utilize them if your body is unable to break it down and activate the supplement into a usable form. 

So when a cousin in law of mine basically put me in a car and drove me to see Randy Grant of Divine Nature in Mesa, AZ, I was pretty skeptical because I knew the consult would end in supplements.

I was in Arizona over Christmas with my husband and kids to see family, and I had already spent several weeks at the Mayo Clinic, trying to find answers [to no avail]. My cousin had health issues of her own, and you know, there is always some Jack, Dick, or Jane trying to get you to 'try this new thing that worked for them.' I resisted, and she finally got me to go.

I'm very glad I did.

Randy Grant took me into his office, pricked my finger, and started a Live Blood Analysis.

What is Live Blood analysis?

Basically, when your blood is drawn at a regular doctor's lab, it is alive for a short while. But then when the phblebotamist spins your blood and sends it down to the lab, the blood literally dies. When it is alive, it is moving and it actually has specific behavior. But when it's dead, that is what it is...a bunch of dead cells and platelets. Who knew?

What Randy does is he takes a single little drop of one's blood and puts it under the microscope to see how it's behaving. He even projects what he sees on a large TV screen for you to see with him.

Your blood should look like this...

Nice fat, round lovely lumps of blood cells.

 My great frustration with taking supplements is that it was very hit and miss. Somethings seemed to help, others did not, and others just made me feel worse. So, I stopped taking supplements all together because I was sick of wasting my money. I would only take good probiotics. After doing my live blood analysis, however, I realized that there was finally a road map (better than muscle testing, if you ask me) that identified what I needed.

Instead of seeing all that lovely, plump, red blood cells (pictured above), Randy saw lots of crazy things in my blood.  Here are some of the problems we saw in my personal live blood analysis:
Fungal forms... (possibly candida!)
Protien linkage...a sign of not properly digesting food (and basically of leaky gut!)
Rouleaux...a sign of not digesting food proteins (no surprise there!)
Spicules (a sign of toxicity in the liver!)

Based on what Randy saw, he prescribed to me 3 supplements
1. A liver cleanse. Once I finished the bottle, my liver would be clean
2. Digestive enzymes, and
3. Using an adrenal support (this was not diagnosed with live blood analysis, but instead we did a laying blood pressure read and then I stood up and took a second blood pressure read...since the difference between the top numbers were greater than 3, we determined that I have fatigued adrenals).

I took these supplements for 6 months, and I returned to AZ for a family reunion just this last May. We did an update on my blood analysis. This time, we saw lots of beautiful red blood cells, some Rouleaux, and some fungal forms. He prescribed me a couple of things and I'm continuing with his protocol.

The level of improvement we have seen in my blood is congruent with the level of improvement I have experienced with my IC symptoms.

But what about the quality of supplements?
Because Mr. Grant has created all of his supplements, and because they come from food (and are not synthetic!), I trust his supplements. He has sourced each dang ingredient in the supplement, down to the grower and the manufacturer that processes each ingredient. I like this a lot because I know how crappy and even dangerous synthetic supplements can be. He's a kind man, but my goodness, he is pretty Type-A when it comes to healing the body with REAL NUTRITION and REAL FOOD.

One other special thing about his supplements:
People with immune/gut problems actually have a hard time absorbing and ASSIMILATING vitamins/nutrients. Let me give you an example that you smarties out there are already aware of. Vitamin D!

You go outside, and the sun rays give your body vitamin D. But then your body needs to transform the vitamin from D, to D1, D2, and D3. Then, and only then, when it is D3, can your body assimilate and USE it.

Another good example is the B vitamin(s). A lot of times people will get blood work done, and they will see that they are high in Vitamin B. So they think "great," but then, they are still having symptoms of vitamin B deficiency (like fatigue). Well that is a great possible example of how they may be eating/taking vitamin B, but they are not able to break it down and utilize it.

Back to Randy's supplements: His supplements are CHELATED, which means they are pre-digested. This means that instead of being vitamin D, it is D3. But he does this for all of his [applicable] ingredients/ vitamins/ minerals/ etc.. So for once, you can actually absorb and assimilate what you buy. No expensive pee. :)

Well, after learning all of this, I thought, "I can stand behind that"...and so I went forward with it. His appointment didn't break the bank either. It was very affordable. So that was a bonus. You can learn more about Live Blood analysis from his website:

Go to his website, and take the time to read all the pages, all the posts, and learn everything you can. You may find that this could be a component used to heal your IC.

Finally, here is a video I found on YouTube of Randy Grant actually performing the live blood analysis for someone. Again, it's just a drop of blood put under a microscope and projected onto a TV screen.

In conclusion...

I was impressed to learn that after doing the analysis and taking the food-based chelated supplements, all of his clients who have chrome's disease have 'magically' reversed their diseases. Obviously it would be illegal to say that Mr. Grant cured those diseases with live blood analysis, since he's not a Chrone's we won't say that, but that's a pretty good coincidental track record, wouldn't you say? *Wink*Wink* :).

One more thought...There are various live blood analysis practitioners around the United States. I went to one near to me in the East Coast. I filmed the analysis and sent it to Randy. It wasn't done properly, but he was kind and willing to fly down and teach his methods to my local practitioner. That is something that is still in the works. But my point is, I really think that Randy's approach is unique, both because of how he reads the blood and the supplements he provides. I receive no compensation for writing about Randy and his supplements. I just hope that my ideas can help someone who is trying to heal. It's what I'm doing. And I'm doing so well.

Blessings. You can beat this. You can heal. Find your journey.
