WHAT IS A TISSUE
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 tissues. If a mineral deficiency or excess exists in the hair, it usually indicates
a mineral deficiency or excess within the body, or 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.
If this is the case, a strong tendency exists for arteriosclerosis (hardening of the
arteries due to calcium placques).
If your calcium level is low, then a tendency exists toward
osteoporosis (demineralization of bone), increased tendency to bone fractures, dental
caries, periodontal disease, muscle cramps, etc.
Various mineral imbalances, as revealed by hair analysis
frequently lead to metabolic dysfunctions before any symptoms become manifest.

TEST FOR MINERALS?
Minerals are the "sparkplugs" of life. They are
involved in almost all enzyme reactions within the body. Without enzyme activity, life
ceases to exist. A trace mineral analysis is preventive as well as being useful as a
WHO NEEDS A HAIR
Anyone who is found ill and no explanation can be found, or
when the cause seems to be found but the 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 spots in fingernails - indicates a possible zinc
- Longitudinal ridging in nails - indicates an iron
- Brittle hair and nails - calcium and copper imbalance.
- Deep grooves across nails - calcium deficiency.
- Stretch marks - zinc deficiency.
- Lock 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.
COMMON CAUSES OF A
- Improper diet - such as excessive intake of refined
carbohydrates and sugars, strict vegetarian diets or other exclusive diets.
- Taking vitamins and minerals which ore not compatible with
your current body chemistry.
- Birth control pills
- Accumulation of toxic metals from the environment, job or
- Inheritance of mineral patterns from parents.
|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.
