Looking at your live blood cells under a powerful microscope will show various anomalies that can be found between the cells – in the plasma. These are:
Platelets (thrombocytes) are tiny blood cells that help the body form clots to stop bleeding.
Thrombocyte aggregation is more directly linked to heart disease risk than cholesterol, consequently we take this finding quite seriously when we see it in liveblood microscopy.
Normal, disc-shaped, inactive platelets do not aggregate due to various mechanisms that cause them to repel each other.
If blood vessels get damaged, they send out signals that are picked up by platelets.
The platelets then rush to the site of damage and form a plug, or clot, to repair the damage.
Once activated by damaged blood vessel walls or other activator chemicals, platelets first become sticky and adhere to damaged and irregular surfaces. They then assume a star-like shape and enmesh with each other and fibrin and release chemicals that activate other platelets and cause blood vessels to contract.
This is the mechanism of coagulation that controls bleeding.
This is an important process where it is needed but potentially dangerous when not needed.
What Causes Platelet Aggregation?
Several conditions can make platelets stick together, including; blood sugar imbalance, an acidic terrain, excess fat and protein consumption, lack of enzymes to digest food properly, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, stress and lifestyle choices such as smoking, caffeine and alcohol.
Correcting this depends on identifying the cause and using a combination of nutritional and lifestyle interventions. These often include digestive enzymes with Betaine HCL and Ox Bile, vitamin E, C, chromium, EPA, DHA, GLA and lifestyle changes
Your live blood sample is taken from a pin-prick on your finger. We put it on a slide and cover it, and put it on the microscope platform right away. We will usually see platelets occurring in groups of various sizes, ranging from roughly half the size of a RBC to very large clusters.
