Heavy Metal and Hair Analysis

Hair Analysis reveals toxic levels of heavy metal and mineral levels

The relationship between the minerals provides valuable information leading to bodily and emotional imbalance. Heavy metal toxicity interrupts the functioning of your organ systems and brain. Detoxification from heavy metals supports your system is working more effectively.

Hair Analysis: Why Use Hair?

Hair is an excretory tissue.  Nutrient elements including magnesium, chromium, zinc, copper and selenium are co-factors for hundreds of important enzymes and are essential for the normal functions of vitamins. The levels of these elements in hair are correlated with levels in organs and tissues.

Toxic elements may be 200-300 times more highly concentrated in hair than in blood or urine.

Hair element analysis is a valuable and inexpensive screen for physiological excess, deficiency or maldistribution of elements.

High Mercury (Hg) – Shark, Tuna, Bonito, Whale and Swordfish have been found to be high in mercury. Also farmed raised fish have been found to contain higher mercury levels than wild or wild crafted fish. A mutual antagonism exists between mercury and selenium. Mercury often affects the liver & kidneys and has been associated with many neurological as well as behavioral disorders.

Heavy Metals:

  • Dental Fillings (Re. silver amalgams) contain nickel, other metals, and over 50% mercury.
  • Mercury is found in breads / grains and vaccinations (thimerisol, added as a preservative to kill bacteria).  Ask for mercury free vaccinations if mandated to have them.
  • Fungicides / pesticides are another source of mercury.
  • Mercury toxicity has been associated with Heart Disease (CardioMyopathy / Keshan’s Disease), Cancer and Alzheimer’s and MS. Aluminum has been implicated in Parkinson’s. Heavy metals can cause tremors. Lead is toxic to the brain as well. Other heavy metal toxicity play an important role in breaking down communication in the body.
  • A follow up hair analysis will help determine if heavy metals such as mercury accumulation could pose an Alzheimer’s threat to those people who are genetically pre-disposed.

Toxic Or Heavy Metal Testing

Do you have any of the following health conditions or symptoms?:

  • Sore gums (gingivitis)?
  • Mental symptoms such as confusion, forgetfulness?
  • Frequent severe depression?
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)?
  • TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) problems?
  • Unusual shakiness (tremors) of hands or arms or twitching of muscles?
  • “Brown spots” or “age spots” under your eyes or elsewhere on the skin?
  • Tendency to more colds, flu, and other infectious diseases than “normal”?
  • Food allergies or intolerances?
  • Numbness or burning sensations in mouth or gums?
  • Numbness or unexplained tingling in arms or legs?
  • Difficulty in walking (ataxia)?
  • Any”silver” fillings?
  • Frequent “metallic” taste in the mouth?
  • Ever had Candida or yeast infections (vagina, mouth or GI tract)?
  • Frequent bad breath (halitosis) or white tongue (thrush)?
  • Frequent low basal body ancillary temperature (below 97.8°F)?
  • Problems with constipation?
  • Heart irregularities or rapid pulse (tachycardia)?
  • Unexplained arthritis in various joints?
  • A great deal of mucus in the stools?
  • Unidentified chest pains with normal EKG’s, X-ray, and heart studies?
  • Poor sleep or frequent insomnia?
  • Frequent kidney infections or significant kidney problems?
  • Extreme fatigue much of the time or never enough energy?
  • Irritability or dramatic changes in behavior?
  • Taking antidepressants now or in the past?
  • Been to many doctors for health problems and been told “There is nothing wrong”?

Have you ever worked:

  • As a painter
  • In manufacturing/chemical or pesticide/fungicide
  • In factories (fungicides with methyl mercury ingredients)
  • In pulp/paper mills that used mercury?
  • As a jeweler?
  • As a dentist, hygienist, or dental assistant?

If so, I would recommend a Heavy Metal and Mineral Hair Analysis. This test results are extensive and informative.

These toxic metals include:

  • Aluminum
  • Arsenic
  • Beryllium
  • Cadmium
  • Lead
  • Mercury
  • Nickel
  • Palladium
  • Platinum
  • Thallium
  • Thorium
  • Uranium

The Program:

Based upon your test results, I put together a program to address heavy metal toxicity and to balance your minerals.  This is an amazing report ~ one you will be glad you did.
