The use of dark field microscopy in the investigation of blood was developed by bacteriologist Dr. Gunther Enderlein (1872-1968). This particular deployment of microscopy makes it possible to observe the micro-organisms which inhabit the blood of living beings. The presence of microbes in the blood was confirmed years later by other researchers who at first ignored Enderlein’s pre-existing theories. In spite of Enderlein’s discoveries having been confirmed, conventional medicine failed to give credence to the procedure which he had developed for dark field blood investigation. It was with Dr. Virchow that the saying originated” The blood is sterile”, and this is still standard teaching at universities now, as it was then. However, one look into the dark field microscope should be all that is required to convince the skeptic that the opposite is in fact the case. To date there have been numerous studies that have shown the validity of dark field microscopy and these discoveries have widened our understanding of health and disease within the body.
Dark field blood investigation is an indispensable part of treatment, since this method makes it possible to not only arrive at a diagnosis but to also monitor the subsequent treatment. It is a procedure which yields precise information regarding the nature of blood, in particular the state of the white blood cells, red blood cells, plasma, and the microbes contained in them. Combined with other investigative methods, it allows for a proper diagnosis to be made. Furthermore, changes in the blood count which are precursors of disease may thus be identified at an early stage. This allows appropriate treatment to be provided and makes dark field microscopy a superb tool for the examination of native blood and the establishment of early detection of nutrient deficiencies and dysfunction in the body.
