A Hair Analysis can reveal a wealth of information concerning your health. The issues that a hair analysis can address are many ranging from mineral deficiencies, heavy metal toxicities, high blood pressure, ADHD, why there may be pain and more. The labs we use have been testing hair for over 40 years and are highly respected and experienced leaders in the hair analysis field. With experience like that, we trust the hair analysis testing that we use in our clinic.
Through a hair analysis, your hair can reveal the secrets of your biochemistry. The hair represents what is occurring inside the cells and gives a reading of what is stored in the body. That is how the hair analysis can reveal heavy metal toxicities, mineral deficiencies or high levels of minerals which are contributing to health issues.
For example, minerals can have an effect on blood pressure. People who have high blood pressure are told to limit their salt, but potassium can lessen the effects of sodium. For someone who has high blood pressure, the need for calcium and magnesium, sodium and potassium balance is essential. A hair analysis will reveal which minerals are need to be balanced.
Heavy metal toxicities are linked to many health issues. Significant amounts of aluminum may lead to symptoms including ADHD, mental confusion, anxiety, headaches and more. Mercury, which is everywhere in the environment, can affect the nervous and digestive systems, plus cause memory loss, anxiety, hyperactivity and disorientation. Cadmium, lead and mercury overload can cause schizophrenia and other mental health problems and severe health concerns if left unchecked. Ninety percent of people are unaware that they have some type of heavy metal load.
A hair analysis can be used to help individuals who have these following conditions by supporting specific imbalances or toxicities in the hair with symptoms such as muscle twitches, insomnia, high blood pressure, fatigue, brain fog, ADHD, fibromyalgia, hyperactivity, hair loss, depression, and much more. As you can see, a hair analysis can be used for many issues. If this information resonates with you and you are not sure where to start. Give us a call and schedule an appointment.
