Darkfield Microscopy including DIAD Analysis

What is Darkfield Microscopy?

I had an epiphany at a Biological Medicine Conference hosted by Occidental Research Foundation when I first learned about Darkfield Microscopy. I could clearly see that I had been treating symptoms instead of gaining access to the deeper levels of real health. This tool allows deep access to the living ecosystem of the blood, which represents the level of function of all the cell communities of the body.

We have trillions of microbes inside our systems and a Darkfield Microscope provides the powerful magnification and light source needed to see these inside the blood. Our microbes work symbiotically with our cells to fuel every single function of our bodies. When everything is in balance, our microbes act as catalysts, facilitating chemical reactions that nourish us. When things are out of balance, they morph into pathogenic forms that harm our bodies.

The Value of DIAD Analysis?

Using a Darkfield Microscope, we take a drop of live blood, and combine it with bio-active developers. This allows us to fast forward patterns of dysfunction inside body and discover the roots of chronic illness for each individual.
These bio-active substances act like photographic developers that show a snapshot from a person’s future. If a situation were to run its course, full steam ahead without being addressed, we can witness the outcome.

The idea of looking directly at what was happening inside of a person’s bloodstream was transformational for me. So many senior practitioners with decades of experience have shared their knowledge about how everything happening inside the body can be witnessed in the blood, before the body even has a chance to create symptoms.

The Search

I had been looking for the ultimate tool to predict a person’s health status. I wanted to look directly at what was happening inside the body, without the lag time of the traditional method of blood and saliva testing.

This type of preventative tool was exactly what I was looking for and its value was again driven home when I conferred with Dr. Karim Dhanani and did my training with Stuart Greene, a who has a great article on this practice.


“The Myth of Immunity” is a great article by Stuart Greene that talks about chemist and microbiologist, Louis Pasteur’s theory that the body is sterile (or without microbes). He invented pasteurization, a wonderful advancement, but his germ theory was not based on scientific evidence.

Günther Enderlein found evidence that contradicted Pasteur’s theories, and believed that the body does not exist in a pure and sterile state which is then attacked by the outside world. His research showed that microbes exist all over the body, in every cell, and that we must take into consideration the relationships formed and what factors affect this relationships. Environment and stress for example, could turn healthy and beneficial exchanges between microbe and cell into adversarial interactions that cause disease.

Turning Point

Enderlein published over 500 scientific articles but his findings were largely overlooked and overshadowed by Pasteur’s theories. To me, our medicinal practices took a turn here that has affected our underlying beliefs and practices. If we look at the evidence, now more than 100 years old, we can see clearly that the body is an eco-system in relationship to the outside world.

Success Story

“Before meeting Bev Maya, I had experienced an extreme loss of energy physically and an extreme loss of my mental focus. I am a financial manager and reading the spreadsheets that I designed for clients previously became like reading Greek. After seeing my GP, I was referred to over a dozen specialists who did their tests and always came to the same answer, “you don’t look fine but I cannot find anything wrong.”

After initially seeing Bev, she did not try to find a box to check off my symptoms. Instead, she went to work figuring out what was going on with me and MY body. We did a live blood analysis and organ testing as well as a series of Pleo treatments. It became quickly apparent that I had excessive heavy metals in my system and had foods that I was eating that were creating a massive allergic reaction.

We started a plan personally tailored to me and within weeks, I started to feel better. I had experienced about a year of running through the traditional medical system previously with little to no change to how I actually felt. Bev was willing to listen to me and what I needed as well as test my own body to find out ITS needs rather than check off a series of symptoms to make a diagnosis. Today, I feel much better and now know what I need to do to maintain my optimal health.

In doing the live blood analysis, I could see the metals in my blood under a microscope as well as all of the other bacteria and mold living in my blood as a result of eating the wrong foods for my body. As we started our Pleo treatments to get my blood back to optimal health, I could actually see the improvements in my blood with my own two eyes. As our appointments moved on, I not only began to feel better but I also SAW the difference in my own blood under the microscope.”

Who Benefits and Why?

Zombie Cells

When chronic inflammation is left unchecked, the normal healing process is compromised. Cell mutations or genetic errors, normally get eliminated but in this compromised state, these mutated cells don’t die off. Mutations completely change the characteristics of the cell, turning them into warped versions of their former selves. The end result of this process can create a cancerous state within an organ system.


Darkfield Solutions

This tool gives us the ability to see the state of the blood in real time, and analyze how the blood cells are behaving and the environment that they are living in. This evidence shows us exactly what stage of this cascading chain reaction a person is in and allows us to take steps to reverse the situation.


Inflammation and Immunity

People suffering from chronic inflammation, are at high risk for immune dysfunction. Our defense response tends to go crazy and attack everything, what we call a “hyper-immune response.” Our immune system gets overwhelmed and confused, trying to fight off both good guys and bad guys. This is not a pleasant or sustainable state because, of course, the body becomes exhausted. The next stage is a “Hypo-immune response,” where the body is unable to fight off much of anything, succumbing to every virus, bacteria and fungi around.

Patients that Benefit the Most

Chronic immune challenges, such as:

Hypo immune responses

  • Low lymphocyte

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • SLE (lupus)
  • Sjogren syndrome
  • Type I diabetes

Chronic inflammatory conditions, such as:

Celiac disease – sprue (gluten-sensitive enteropathy)

Dementia (Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’s Disease)
