Service to assess the body's mineral deficiencies and toxin levels, hair mineral analysis can check for even the smallest amounts of toxins, heavy metals, trace elements and contaminants.
The hair test can check for mineral imbalances and determine concentrations of toxic heavy metal contaminants with a hair sample.
The hair sample is taken at home by you and returned in a prepaid envelope supplied by us when you purchase the hair test kit, then all you need to do is wait for your results to arrive in the post (please note this can take up to 3 weeks from when you send off the sample)
This is to give you an indication of the data you will receive from the multivariate hair analysis service.
The detailed report is 6 pages long including testing and analysis for eight toxic metals along with a comprehensive mineral profile.
We will send you a self testing pack hair analysis kit with a letter containing instructions for collecting a hair sample and a prepaid return envelope (GB, Free Post) simply fill in your details and pop it in the post.
Based on the hair test results, nutritional and therapeutic measures can be recommended to correct the imbalances and aid the removal of toxins from the body after testing.
Mineral deficiency tests are the first step to understanding your body's mineral imbalances.
The body contains 29 essential elements, the hair analysis test can help you establish what elements are out of balance in your body, your mineral profile will provide data on significant ratios of minerals present.
The purpose of hair tissue mineral analysis is to re-establish a normal balance of body chemistry through individually designed dietary supplement suggestions.
Properly followed this may then help remove toxic metals and enhance the ability of the body to more efficiently utilize the minerals that are consumed.
Use our range of supporting nutrients and mineral supplements to re-balance and redress any mineral deficiencies or excesses in your body.
The hair mineral test results includes a detailed report on bio accumulation levels of harmful toxic heavy metals that can cause sickness, fatigue and disease.
There are ever increasing levels of pollution in our environment caused by a variety of factors including the use of chemicals in industry.
Every person is exposed to toxic metals to some degree, their retention by the body is dependent upon other substances present.
Heavy metals are present in all biological systems, they can also can be found in some pharmaceutical drugs, ideally levels of heavy metals should be as low as possible in the human body.
By examining the toxic metal levels from the hair sample in relation to the protective minerals, the extent to which heavy metals may be involved in abnormal chemistry can frequently be seen.
There is a growing body of evidence that suggests a link between heavy metals and significant developmental and neurological damage to the brain.
Toxic metals have a negative effects on the healthy development of babies and children and are implemented in a multitude of possible serious health conditions.
Although there is not yet a consensus agreement between medical professionals as to the direct relationship between toxic chemicals and diseases.
There is a lot of evidence that heavy metal toxicity or mineral deficiency can complicate and in many cases aggravate existing health problems.
Monitoring human exposure to metals using scalp hair analysis as a tool for assessing toxins can provide an insight into underlying health conditions.
Quantitative analysis of untreated hair samples is one of the most accurate ways of detecting toxic metals in your body tissues.
This method is ideal for testing for toxic metals including common pollutants such as lead and mercury.
The trace elements hair analysis test service and mineral deficiency testing will detect levels of nutrient minerals and toxic metals found in the body.
Nutrient minerals are considered essential for many biological functions and play key roles in metabolic functions.
Factors that can effect nutrition:
Nutrient minerals and Toxic metals:
The procedure also checks for additional minerals present which are considered essential for the human body.
Further studies are being conducted to further define their biological and nutritional roles.
Other metals checked for
Taking a sample for use with the hair mineral analysis test kits is easy, supplied with the test is a card with complete instructions of how and where to take a sample from.
Only a small amount of hair is required for testing, approximately 100 micrograms (or one teaspoon).
Included in the test kit is a piece of card that converts to a simple scale, placing the sample on the scale helps you easily determine when you have an adequate sample.
This test will check for minerals and trace elements, your profile can provide a unique insight into your nutritional biochemistry.
The recommendations contained within the report are specifically designed according to your metabolic type, mineral status, age and sex.
Additional recommendations may be based upon other supporting clinical data.Metabolic type
This section of the mineral hair analysis report will discuss your metabolic profile which is based on research conducted by Dr D L Watts.
Each classification is established by evaluating the hair tissue mineral test results and determining the degree to which the minerals may be associated with a stimulating and /or inhibiting effect up to the main energy producing endocrine glands.
The endocrine glands regulate nutrient absorption, excretion, metabolic utilization, and incorporation into the tissues of the body, the skin, organs, bone, hair and nails.
How efficiently each nutrient is utilized depends largely upon proper functioning of the endocrine glands.Endocrine Function
Low thyroid activity as well as low adrenal grand function will contribute to lowering the metabolic rate.Digestion
Dietary factors such as low protein intake, high carbohydrate intake and eating refined carbohydrates, especially those containing appreciable amounts of sugar have an indirect yet significant effect in suppressing the metabolic rate.
Poor absorption and utilization of nutrients found in the foods that are consumed will result in decreased energy production on a cellular level, thereby, affecting metabolism, in turn a lowered metabolic rate will have an adverse effect upon the digestion process, thereby creating a vicious cycle.Viral infections
A past occurrence of a severe or chronic viral infection can contribute to a decrease in the metabolic rate, due to the body's neural-immunological response to infection.
After a prolonged period of time a diminished metabolic rate such as indicated in these test results has been correlated with fatigue, cold hands and feet, easy weight gain and craving for sweets.
There are several more sections in the test report , i.e. - Nutrient Mineral Level / Nutrient Mineral Ratios.
The mineral-check hair report will then go on to discuss your food allergies, what to avoid in foods and what foods are recommend that you have more of.What to expect during program
The mobilization and elimination of certain metals may cause temporary discomfort.
As an example if and excess accumulation of iron or lead is contributing to arthritis, a temporary flare-up of the condition may occur from time to time.
This discomfort can be expected until removal of excess metal is complete.
The Doctors report may recommend nutrition vitamins and minerals supplements as well as a good balanced diet.
Please note that re-evaluation using the another sample and test kit (call us for a discount) should be obtained after 3 months or more to allow the necessary changes to take effect.
