including hair analysis data and detoxification procedures.
analysis provides an insight to what is happening within the body
at tissue level. It is able to detail the amount of nutrients within
the hair, which heavy metals are being sequestered and indicates
the response of the body to stress, the activity of the thyroid,
adrenal, immune system and carbohydrate metabolism.
hair is cut from 3-5 sites on the head. I use labs based in the
USA for analysis. The analysis gives us:
Mineral Levels Within The Hair
refers to the amount of each mineral within the hair. This gives
a general picture of nutrient levels within the body. Do note that
the test shows levels within the hair, not within the cells, which
is where the nutrients are actually needed and used. The metabolic
typing test works out levels within the cells. The hair test gives
a general indication of how the nutrients are being used within
the body and what the body is doing.
test reveals what toxic metals are being excreted from the body
to the hair. Most people are afflicted by metals these days from
sources such as water, air and food supplies. When they build up
to certain levels they can create havoc with your metabolism.
levels in the hair are a good sign because it means they are not
being stored in the body. The more detox procedures you do and more
closely you follow your nutrition and supplement routine, the more
metals will be removed to the safety of your hair.
mineral ratios within the hair are believed to show the body’s
reaction to stress and whether it is in an alarm phase, resistance
phase or exhaustion state. The data also indicates the level of
thyroid and adrenal activity with the body as well as immune function
and carbohydrate metabolism. These can be charted over time to see
your progress and reaction from the body.
analysis is used to monitor detoxification of minerals and the response
of the body to stress and various functions during your metabolic

analysis. Many companies provide associated nutrition plans from
this, but this does not work because it is your cellular nutrients
