A hair mineral analysis reveals your mineral deficiencies and heavy metal toxicity. It’s an incredibly powerful tool that is used to design a comprehensive Nutritional Program that is specifically designed for you. The hair is tested because it is one of the many places the body dumps excess minerals and heavy metals for storage away from vital organs. The amount of minerals deposited in the hair reveals all kinds of things about your body chemistry. Your test results reveal and explain the causes of many health symptoms and diseases, whose underlying causes are almost always related to nutritional deficiencies, mineral imbalance and heavy metal toxicity.
FACTS ABOUT YOUR HEALTH
Minerals are the “Spark Plug” of the life process. Minerals in the body are involved in almost all enzyme reactions, metabolic activity and detoxification cycles. They are vital for the effective absorption and proper functioning of nutrients and vitamins.
Our bodies cannot utilize vitamins and other nutrients without a correct balance of minerals, even in trace amounts. Proper mineral balance is essential to avoid chronic fatigue, weight gain/loss, headaches, depression and osteoporosis.
Mineral imbalances are also linked to oxidative stress that can lead to some cancers.
Due to our commercial methods of agriculture, not only is it depleting the soil of precious trace minerals, it is also destroying the ability of plants to be able to utilize those elements. Hence, our food is nutritionally deficient right from the start. When mineral deficiencies occur, toxic metals often replace these vital minerals in the body. Because of today’s highly industrialized society, we are exposed to toxic metals every day.
The presence of toxic metals in the body has been implicated in the onset of chronic ailments such as Alzheimer’s disease, ADD/ADHD, diabetes, autism and Parkinson’s disease as well as infertility and miscarriage. The addition of essential minerals can expel toxic metals.
Various mineral imbalances, as revealed by your hair analysis, frequently lead to metabolic dysfunctions before any physical symptoms manifest.
WHAT CAN THE HAIR MINERAL ANALYSIS REVEAL?
A hair mineral analysis provides a practitioner with a blueprint of the state of body chemistry and stage of stress. Hair analysis reveals information about your heavy metal toxicities, oxidation type (metabolic rate), energy levels, carbohydrate tolerance, stage of stress, nervous system balance, kidney and liver stress, adrenal and thyroid functioning, immune system, trends for physical, mental, and emotional condition, and more.
WHO NEEDS A HAIR ANALYSIS?
This is safe, non-invasive and cost-effective. Everyone should be tested to see what issues are going on in the body to which they may be unaware. Hair analysis can be used as a preventative tool by revealing mineral imbalances even before any health ailments manifest. Hair analysis opens up a whole new world for solving health ailments by recognizing your biochemical individuality.
Children and Focus:
A hair mineral analysis test is a powerful guide for parents that are searching for alternative treatments for ADHD/ADD and focus problems. Mineral deficiency and metal toxicity can play a role in your child’s behavior, attitude and focus ability.
People searching for fibromyalgia relief can use our hair analysis test as a guide to identify if your tissues may be burdened by metals, if detox pathways are needing support or if they night be suffering from a mineral deficiency.
WHAT MINERALS ARE TESTED
Minerals screened include: calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, copper, zinc, manganese, selenium, iron, and cobalt.
Elevated readings can have different meanings depending upon:
- Present symptoms
- The elevated mineral in question
- Whether a specific treatment, regimen or diet is being followed
- Relationships to other elemental readings
Toxic metal screening includes: lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, and aluminum.
A very high reading may represent a toxic amount of mineral in the hair, and in the body tissues in general. In the case of toxic metal, any deposition or accumulation in the hair indicates some degree of toxicity.
High levels of toxic metals inhibit the body’s ability to process and assimilate specific nutritional elements that are essential to good health and have a proven link to many types of diseases.
This information, along with dietary and nutritional evaluations, will provide the data needed for a nutritional balancing program to establish and maintain optimal levels and ratios with proper diet; to provide supplementary nutrients and lifestyle modification; and to prevent or reverse many physical and behavioural health conditions.
HEALTH PROBLEMS THAT MAY BE ASSOCIATED WITH MINERAL IMBALANCES OR TOXIC METAL EXCESSESS
Anxiety and depression
Blood sugar imbalances
Headaches including migraines
Hypertension (high blood pressure)
Inability to lose weight
Infertility and Miscarriage
Lethargy or weakness
Osteoporosis (brittle bones)
Please note: Hair mineral analysis is not a medical test. It is a screening test only and does not diagnose disease. However, a properly performed and interpreted hair analysis can reveal various mineral imbalances that indicate a tendency for various conditions. All of the mineral levels give a trained and experienced practitioner an idea of the condition of the various organs and the body as a whole.
