Analysis of Elements – Discovery of Hair Minerals and Toxin Analysis Test

The term ‘elements’ takes us back to chemistry class when we used to put all our efforts in memorizing the periodic table but never really understood its impact on our health. Some of these elements called ‘trace or essential minerals’ are the “spark plugs” of life and play many important biochemical and metabolic roles within the human body. Analysis of these elements gives an understanding of mineral patterns which may be associated with stress, blood sugar and carbohydrate imbalances, metabolic rates, biochemical energy production, toxic load and glandular imbalances. Some of these elements are known as ‘Heavy Metals’ such as Mercury, Aluminum, and Lead. They have a negative impact on our health and it is important to understand the load of these metals as often symptoms of heavy metal toxicity mimic illnesses like autoimmune, thyroid dysfunction, gut problems such as IBS and mental disorders, depression, fatigue, nerve pain, insomnia, dementia, Alzheimer’s, headaches, heavy periods, endometriosis, adenomyosis and imbalanced hormones.

Hair Test gives a thorough assessment of the levels of essential elements (excess/deficiency), heavy metal toxicity and the ratios of elements essential for bodily functions. When you take a hair mineral assessment, the readings are inferred to enable you to understand the root cause of your ailment and optimize your diet and lifestyle to reverse the disease.
