Dark field blood microscopy according to Prof. Dr. Enderlein

Information regarding dark field blood microscopy according to Prof. Dr. Enderlein

Prof. Dr. Günther Enderlein (1872 – 1968) developed the principles of dark field blood microscopy at the beginning of the 20th century. He worked as a biologist in Berlin and dedicated his scientific life to studying live blood under very specific aspects. After his death, dark field microscopy was almost completely forgotten. In the past 10 years, interest in this method has grown greatly and today specially trained naturopathic doctors use this in their daily practice.

Normales Blutbild

Normal blood count:
The red blood cells are uncontaminated and do not adhere to each other, the blood plasma is clear. Optimal circulation and metabolism are ensured.

Blutbild mit Eiweißeinschlüsse

Clear protein inclusions in the red blood cells as a sign of overloading of the metabolism with animal proteins. This can result in disorders of the immune system (e.g. allergies and chronic mucositis).

Stark verklebtes Blutbild

Heavy clumping of red blood cells (rouleaux formation) as a sign of circulatory problems with impairment of the metabolism. This can result in circulatory disorders and lack of energy. Two immune cells (phagocytes) are in the center.

Eiweißkristalle im Blutbild

Protein crystals (symplasts) in the blood as a sign of overloading of the metabolism with animal protein. This can result in degenerative joint disorders and high blood pressure.

Massiv belastetes Blutbild

Massive overloading of the blood plasma with waste material (filits). The viscosity of the blood is increased, its flow characteristics are reduced. This can result in lack of oxygen in the tissue, reduced metabolic activity with regulatory disorders, and the development of serious chronic illnesses.

Zerfall der Blutkörperchen

Premature degeneration of blood cells after 4 hours as a sign of a high degenerative tendency. The reduced resistance of the cell walls can be an indication of an increased risk of cancer.

Evaluation of blood using dark field microscopy

In addition to the conventional internal medicine evaluation of various blood cells by form and structure, the analysis provide information about the so called “internal environment” and the functioning of the blood cells. It offers a unique opportunity to evaluate the overall condition of the bodily environment.

Examination procedure

A drop of blood is taken with a small gauge needle and immediately, without fixation and dying, examined together with the patient with a special dark field microscope with 500x -1000x magnification by means of video transmission. The examination itself takes about 20 minutes. The equipment cost is so high, because the doctor must have a special microscope.
