When your hair analysis is completed by the laboratory, you will receive the following:
Laboratory Hair Analysis showing the levels of key minerals as well as the balance with synergistic minerals.
Detailed Report Booklet.
1 hour phone consultation with Dr. Ken O’Neal, MD/ND
(Please allow 1-3 weeks for results. If the lab is exceptionally busy, on rare occasion it may take up to 4 weeks.)
Trace mineral analysis is a test which measures the mineral content of your hair. Mineral content of the hair reflects the mineral content of the body’s tissue. If a mineral deficiency or excess exists in the hair, it usually indicates a mineral deficiency or excess within the body, or an issue with bio-unavailability.
Examples: If your hair reveals an elevated calcium level two or three times normal, then your calcium level within the body may be elevated also. This can be caused by too much calcium in forms- especially citrate or carbonate- that are difficult for the body to absorb). If this is the case, a strong tendency exists for Arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries due to calcium plaque buildup), Arthritis (caused by excess calcium being deposited in the joints) and/or stiff and inflexible muscles (caused by excess.
If your calcium level is low, then a tendency exists toward Osteoporosis (de-mineralization of bone), increased tendency to bone fractures, dental cavities, periodontal disease, and muscle cramps, etc.
Various mineral imbalances frequently lead to metabolic dysfunctions before any symptoms become manifest. Therefore if you can predict such a dysfunction, it may be correctable before it develops into a full blown health problem.
*This analysis is performed for the essential minerals: Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, Iron, Manganese, Zinc, Chromium, Selenium, Phosphorus, Nickel, Cobalt, Molybdenum, Lithium, and Boron. It also tests for the toxic metals: Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Arsenic, and Aluminum.
OTHER CONDITIONS WHICH MAY RESULT OR BE AGGRAVATED BY A MINERAL IMBALANCE ARE:
Musculo- Skeletal Disorders
WHY AND WHEN TO DO A MINERAL TEST:
When one is found ill and no explanation can be found, or when the cause seems to be found, but the usual therapy is not wholly effective. Hair analysis opens up a whole new vista for the solving of your own particular problem by recognizing your biochemical individuality.
Even if you are not experiencing a severe problem, abnormal changes in body chemistry and nutritional deficiencies may result in early subtle changes in the body such as:
White spot in fingernails- indicates a possible zinc deficiency.
Longitudinal ridging in nails- indicates an iron deficiency.
Brittle hair and nails calcium and copper imbalance.
Deep Groves across nails- calcium deficiency.
Stretch Marks- zinc deficiency.
Lack of growth- zinc deficiency.
Mood Swings- Possible toxic metal accumulation such as lead, mercury, or cadmium.
The above indicators are early signs of metabolic disturbances and may lead to serious problems if left unchecked.
Last, but not least, …to save money. Rather than scatter-shooting with random minerals and amounts, an analysis will allow you to target what your body actually needs.
COMMON CAUSES OF A MINERAL IMBALANCE
Improper diet such as excessive in-take of refined carbohydrates and sugars, strict vegetarian diets or other exclusive diets.
Taking vitamins and minerals which are not compatible with your current body chemistry.
Birth control pills.
Accumulation of toxic metals from the environment, job or hobby.
Inheritance of mineral patterns or mineral absorption problems.
Hair analysis is an invaluable screening tool which allows a correct program of diet and supplementation to be designed for each individual’s specific needs. Never before has there been available a metabolic blueprint with such a degree of applicable scientific accuracy. For further information, see your naturopathic doctor or nutritional consultant, such as Dr. Ken O’Neal .
DID YOU KNOW?
Hair analysis is the most efficient means of determining exactly what minerals you do need.
Although rare, taking too much of any one vitamin or mineral can sometimes be harmful. For example, too much iron can cause liver damage as well as too much of the less absorbable forms of calcium, such as citrate or carbonate.
Women’s premenstrual headaches and cramps are often caused by too much copper or not enough magnesium in their system.
Arthritis can be caused by lead, cadmium, or mercury poisoning and consumption of too much of the less absorbable forms of calcium.
Mercury toxicity in a mother’s system can damage or cause death for her unborn child.
Eating the wrong diet can contribute to many kinds of diseases, such as constipation, diverticulosis, diabetes, and even cardiovascular disease.
Adolescent acne can also be caused by a bad diet and/or lead or copper poisoning, as well as a zinc deficiency.
Approximately 80% of our population lacks the enzymes and natural stomach acids to digest their foods properly, which leads to mineral and vitamin deficiencies of all kinds.
Hyperactive children often have too much lead or other toxic minerals (such as mercury from vaccinations) in their systems.
Obesity is frequently caused by chronic blood sugar problems, which are precipitated by deficiencies of chromium, vanadium, and magnesium.
Magnesium supplements may prevent brain damage of alcoholics.
The male Prostate gland contains more zinc than any other organ in the body; because of this adequate zinc levels are important for a healthy prostate and male potency.
Diuretics often prescribed for patients with high blood pressure and heart trouble can decrease their potassium and magnesium levels.
