How Good Is Live Blood Analysis?

Question: How good is live blood analysis?

Dr. Hibberd's Answer:

Not good at all! Beware of anyone who offers you live blood analysis or nutritional blood analysis. It has no scientific evidence to support its use, no redeeming features, is unreliable, is not sensitive or specific, and promoting it may be used as grounds for removal of a healthcare practitioner's medical license for healthcare fraud and deception.

It sounds like elaborate testing to the unknowing, but it is usually used to convince people to buy into dietary supplements, or to fraudulently convince a patient that they are ill. Do not waste your money.
